Here's a speedster (on BaT) that gets me excited:

and this little Healey isn't far behind.

Both sitting at $30k with a few days left.

Not normally a fan of such finishes, but this is sitting at $10K. Probably go for <$20.



Im seriously considering going back to my roots when I get rid of the 968 and Spyder. I think I could really enjoy wrapping things up with a TR, or an A or a B. Heck, maybe even a Mini. Don’t think I’ll be able to afford a 3000 or a Guilia/Guilietta.

In high school I helped a buddy and some other knuckleheads slap a v8 in an Austin Healy -- or maybe it was a MGA, can't really recall.  Early 60s. What a hoot.  I vividly recall when it was first fired up with just headers attached. About the coolest thing I ever heard or saw at the time.  I(have come to understand since that such V8 conversions in these early '60s British sports cars was and is still a thing.

I love just about everything about this. Except the seats. And it could use a Les Leston steering wheel.

I had two MGAs back in the early 70s.  I split the rims to widen them, put a very cool roll bar in them and tape on the head lights and removed the front grill to give them a road racer look that looked similar to a Cobra.  20201116_10300120201116_102919I did nothing to the little 1600cc engine other than a dual exhaust that ran under the rocker panels.

They were fun little cars and always drew a lot of attention. I would frequently find people checking it out when I would come out of a store.
