For some it's a hard concept to grasp, but the easiest and cheapest way to enter Spridget ownership is with a rust-free car from the West Coast. Shipping is cheap in comparison to solving the problems straightening-out a car that needs rockers, sills, and floors.

Plus having a car from California makes listening to Brian Wilson all the more enjoyable. A blonde in the passenger seat is even better.
