As a MK 1 owner I am always looking for books and articles on the history of the marque. This is the best yet. Packed with facts and stories I have never heard before and just an all round excellent book. I would highly recommend this book to any Frogeye owner.

4.0 out of 5 stars .........Book Has Too Much Frogeye Racing........, 25 Dec 2013

This review is from: Frogeye Sprite: The Complete Story (Hardcover)
As A Collector Of Classic Car Books And A Soft Spot For The Frogeye..The Frogeye Sprite Complete Story Is To Me A Bit Dissapointing Too Much Emphasis On Frogeye Racing... Would Prefer More On The Frogeye Sprite Mk1 Road Car.

This review is from: Frogeye Sprite: The Complete Story (Hardcover)
Fantastic book, yes..........that can't be denied due to the unbelievably phenomenal research that's gone into it. There's a bit of a caveat though.............if, ( like me ), you've not got the slightest interest in racing, rallying, competition etc, then you'll perhaps be a bit disappointed as 3/4 of this book is taken by the competition/racing history of over 80 specific cars, all noted by registration number. There's also the history of some very early cars by chassis number, including 3 of the first 5. Number crunching i do find interesting, ( it's got details of the LAST right-hand-drive car built ), but when you've read the race/comp etc history of 5 or so cars it becomes one tedious yawn trying to trawl through the rest of them............an interesting addendum to some of these tales though is "what happened next" after the racing etc finished. How some of this info was found is amazing, knowing as i do how long it took Jonathon Bird to unearth the history of 410 EAO.
There is of course other fascinating information, Jonathon Birds story of his finding and restoration of 410 EAO, ( which was serialised in the "Midget and Sprite" clubs magazine MASCOT some years ago ). Contemporary tuners like Speedwell, Alexander, Shorrock have detailed info....... There's the story of Healeys' Supersprite, and the full history of the Isle Of Wight Frogeyes......and there is a lot more specific info on other subjects too.

So, i can't deny a superlative book.

The basic Frogeye production history is well known, BUT 3/4 of this book is based on it's competition history. Which is no bad thing, if you own one of them and want to know it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference book, 17 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Frogeye Sprite: The Complete Story (Hardcover)
This book tells the story of the friendly frog. Good references to prototypes and modified cars, at least the English versions. What the book lacks though is some of the other worldly examples of modified sprites.

This review is from: Frogeye Sprite: The Complete Story (Hardcover)
What a terrific book. Unbelievably detailed in both its research and implementation. A true Bible of Sprite. Mr. Baggott must have researched for years to be able to put this together. I haven't put it down.
