This 1966 Austin-Healey Sprite is affectionately known as the
"Frogeye" in the UK and the "Bugeye" in the US,
because its headlights were prominently mounted on top of the bonnet

other sizes: small medium large original

Agree with everyone that says this shot is outstanding -- it is.
Have a fond spot in my heart for these cars, having lived in the UK.
