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

1966 Austin Healey 3000 Mark 3 Phase 2 By John

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

Austin Healy. British Heaven, Lucas Hell By Steven

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
