It wasn’t to be, as Michael Miller in a classic Austin Healey Sprite ran away with both races, Davis said. Even so, the Mini Cooper finished third in the first test behind Miller and Tony Drum in a Sprite. The Sprite driver spun late in the race, and Davis passed him for second. In what Brad Davis called “another tune-up” for the Pirelli World Challenge Series races later this year, the team took part in two motoring classes and finished at or near the top in both categories. Father and son Brad and Rob Davis both drove at Road Atlanta March 15-16 in the SCCA National Majors Series double race weekend. Brad Davis, driving a 2002 Mini Cooper in the H Production grade, was looking for his third win in a row after national victories at Sebring and Roebling Road courses.

A: As with any collector car, it all depends on;
A; Finding a collector even interested in owning a car like that - because nobody else will even look at it.
B; How rare the car is an how many of them are on the market when you are trying to sell yours?
And of course, how good the restoration is. Check e-bay for completed listings for bug-eyed sprites. Likely you'll see a few cars on there that sold, and how much their owners got for them. It's important to look at cars that sold, because asking price and selling price are often two very different things.
The question "What is it worth?" can always be answered "Whatever somebody is willing to pay. period." the car could be insured for more or appraised for more, but until you get someone to open their wallet, those numbers are meaningless.
One thing you can depend on, it will likely cost MUCH more to do an excellent restoration than the car will EVER be worth, even if you can do a quality job yourself. (answered by on November 12, 2009)
A: Love the healy's... Ive seen sprites as low as the 1000 dollar range but if you want even a decent all around running and driving example I would say from $3K (still pretty low on the scale) and up depending on condition...
Also forgot to mention you can find them in the U.S. ebay is a great spot to find a wide variety...
If you have the cash and want a pristine one.. I would check with classic auction houses and etc... (answered by 1000DollarAutos.com on June 18, 7968)
