    Love It — Always wanted one. In the 1960's they were the ultimate British sports car. Jaguars were too much of a status symbol, and the other British sports cars were a little light weight. They had the speed record for a while, and it still seems to me to go like a bat out of ..... I also like that they don't make them any more, so they didn't ever go off the rails like Porsches. I used to have one of those, but got rid of it because it became such a status symbol.

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

    Pros: Great old technology. No electronic stuff

    Cons: Lucas

    Good Starter Classic Car — Got it from my uncle, with a torn ragtop, scratched, unoriginal paint, and only running on 5 cylinders. I got the engine and transmission professionally fixed, but still coughed and was a very unreliable car. Terrible resale, too. Great Britain isn't always great.

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

    Pros: Great looks, rare, British

    Cons: Unreliable, poor quality, hard to find parts

    Good — My Austin Healey Mk.III is a 2+2 with a 6-cylinder engine and manual transmission. In fair condition, needs fixing constantly. No seat-belts. Soft-top convertible. Red, after market radio. Over all, I love it. It is pretty rare, with only 42000 mde.

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

    Pros: Good looking, good gas mileage, etc.

    Cons: Unreliable, unsafe

    Shes A Beauty! — -Runs well and very strong -Observers do a double take when informed that it is original, unrestored with original paint. -Overall great condition with just the right patina -There are a few dings, but they are like proud battle scars still sporting the original paint -What you see is what you get. It has been well maintained but noboody has messed with it nor has it ever been taken apart. -Only modifications are: >72 spoke chrome wheels / have original >Monza exhaust / have original >Halley fuel pump and regulator

    Pros: All Originale, Unrestored

    Cons: Some Dings

    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. ... Read More

    A Grand Original Austin Healey By Jerry

    Every Young Man's Dream Car! By BlacktopGypsy
