1966 Austin-Healey 3000 Review

It's British — It's expensive to restore...hopefully my great-great grandchildren can drive me around in it.

Pros: It's Awesome.

Cons: It's split up in a whole bunch of boxes

1966 Austin Healey 3000 Mark 3 Phase 2 — It's bitter-sweet because I inherited it from my former professor, Clay Shepherd from Indiana University, whom I wish was still driving it, of course. It's a bit squirrelly compared to modern cars. But, it's a blast to drive fast. I wonder if the speedometer is accurate when it says 120. Well, not that fast, but fast enough to scare my passengers into ....What more can I say?

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: top down, of course.

Cons: ancient mechanicals

British sports car, good looking and fun to drive. It was in a constant state of repair. The only car I have ever owned in which the distributor cap caught fire. In the rain I had to drive over 80 to ... Read More

Every Young Man's Dream Car! By BlacktopGypsy

The only negative has been that I have realized it is not suitable for my dream of touring the US in a classic car. No dealer network for antique British cars. Parts are easy to source, and not expe... Read More
