Very nice! I’ve always liked the lines of the Austin Healy. The colors are fantastic!

Under the hood is the cat's meow, for sure. Lovely work and above all else, it is has that nice shine. Well done.

That is one sexy little ride! I expect to see a certain “Double Oh” type behind the wheel of such a machine. Nicely done! :shoutout: :shoutout: :shoutout:

Sweet, Lee!

I always loved the look of the Healey, even though at the time I had an E-Type. They aren't really the same animal at all, it's OK to love them both!. A friend had one and when I drove it I found it was even more difficult to get into than my E-Type because the steering wheel was so large and the tunnel for your legs was pretty long and shallow. Maybe the shocks on this one were a little tired, but it drove a bit like a 53 Buick my family used to have.

And now that I realize I'd like to have this kit, as usual it is unobtanium. I guess I'll have to build a TR-3 I have instead...
