CLASSIC VLOG! CAITLYN JENNER AUSTIN HEALEY BUG EYE SPRITE!

CAITLYN JENNER AUSTIN HEALEY BUG EYE SPRITE – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 631 – Fireball and Kathie head with the team to The Rodeo Drive Concours, spot the Caitlyn Jenner Austin Healey Bug Eye Sprite and have a convo!

From WIKI… The Austin-Healey Sprite is a small open sports car which was produced in the United Kingdom from 1958 to 1971.

The Sprite was announced to the press in Monte Carlo by the British Motor Corporation on 20 May 1958, just before that year’s Monaco Grand Prix.

It was intended to be a low-cost model that “a chap could keep in his bike shed”, yet be the successor to the sporting versions of the pre-war Austin Seven.

The Sprite was designed by the Donald Healey Motor Company, with production being undertaken at the MG factory at Abingdon.

It first went on sale at a price of £669, using a tuned version of the Austin A-Series engine and as many other components from existing cars as possible to keep costs down.

When the Mk. II Sprite was introduced in 1961 it was joined by a badge-engineered MG version, the Midget, reviving a model name used by MG from the late 1920s through to the mid 1950s.

Enthusiasts often refer to these later Sprites and Midgets collectively as “Spridgets.”

The MG-badged version of the car continued in production for several years after the Austin-Healey brand ceased to exist.

About CAITLYN from WIKI… CaitlynJenner (born October 28, 1949), formerly known as #BruceJenner, is an American television personality and retired Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete. Jenner was a college football player for the Graceland Yellowjackets before incurring a knee injury that required surgery.

Coach L. D. Weldon, who had coached Olympic decathlete Jack Parker, convinced Jenner to try the decathlon. After intense training, Jenner won the 1976 Olympics decathlon event at the Montreal Olympic Games, gaining fame as “an all-American hero”.

Jenner set a third successive world record while winning the Olympics. The winner of the Olympic decathlon is traditionally given the unofficial title of “world’s greatest athlete”.

With that stature, Jenner subsequently established a career in television, film, writing, auto racing, business and as a Playgirl cover model.

About RODEO DRIVE… Rodeo Drive is a two-mile-long street, primarily in Beverly Hills, California, with its southern segment in the City of Los Angeles.

Its southern terminus is at Beverwil Drive, and its northern terminus is at its intersection with Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills.

The name is most commonly used metonymically to refer to the three-block stretch of the street north of Wilshire Boulevard and south of Little Santa Monica Boulevard, which is known for its luxury goods stores.

The larger business district surrounding Rodeo, known as the “Golden Triangle,” which extends from Wilshire Boulevard to Santa Monica Boulevard, is both a shopping district and a tourist attraction.

About Rodeo Drive from WIKI… Rodeo Drive /rˈd./ is a two-mile-long street, primarily in Beverly Hills, California, with its southern segment in the City of Los Angeles. Its southern terminus is at Beverwil Drive, and its northern terminus is at its intersection with Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills.

The name is most commonly used metonymically to refer to the three-block stretch of the street north of Wilshire Boulevard and south of Little Santa Monica Boulevard, which is known for its luxury goods stores.

The larger business district surrounding Rodeo, known as the “Golden Triangle,” which extends from Wilshire Boulevard to Santa Monica Boulevard, is both a shopping district and a tourist attraction.

In 1906, Burton E. Green (1868-1965) and other investors purchased the property that would become Beverly Hills, formerly named Rancho Rodeo de las Aguas, with plans for a mixed-use subdivision with a branch of the Los Angeles and Pacific Railway running North on Rodeo Drive before turning west at Sunset Boulevard.

They platted the street that very year, in 1906. By 1907, 75×160 foot parcels on Rodeo were selling for $1,100 each. It became a bridle path in 1912, when the Beverly Hills Hotel was built on a former lima bean field.

By November 1925, similar lots were selling for between $15,000 and $30,000, almost double what they’d been selling for in September.

The central part of Rodeo eventually became a business street with hardware stores, gas stations, beauty shops, and bookstores. In 1958, real estate developer Marvin Kratter bought 48,000 square feet of land at the corner of Rodeo and Wilshire Boulevard from the city of Beverly Hills.
 
The acreage is across the street from the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and Kratter paid something over $2 million for it.
