Great shot, and a reminder to me of a similar Austin Healy 100-4 I purchased in October of 1962. I was 19 years old at the time and completely taken with British cars and started restoring them, doing all the work myself for years. I became quite enthused about driving cars with inadequate (none in many cases) and electronic wiring that smoked more than I did at the time. This courtesy of John Lucas, "Prince of Darkness". I hated the switch to Jaeger instruments.... what heresy!!!

In fact, I gave up smoking during my Brit Car Period, so that I could tell if the smoke I was seeing was from the car's electronics or me. Another thank you to John Lucas, as he ended a horrible habit for me.

The day I towed it home behind my 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air two door hardtop was an eventful day for me.

It turned out to be the day of the Columbus Day Storm in the Pacific NW. Or, the big blow, or the result of Typhoon Freda, the largest subtropical storm to come ashore in the Pacific North West part of the US, since the year 1880.

I was completely without the information on the coming storm, as I hooked the AH up to my Chevy with a bumper hitch and drove through incredibly high winds over the Santiam Pass from Eugene, Oregon to Bend, Oregon... some 140 miles. The route was complete with ravines, drops to the McKenzie River, and lots of places to lose the car.

I was unaware of the intensity of the storm and warnings to stay off the roads as I drove the trip, with the AH whipping around behind my car.

I got to Bend, and was making the last turn onto the street to my house, when the bumper hitch came loose from the Austin Healey and the car rolled up onto the lawn of a barber shop. Some friends came by and helped me get the car half a block to my house.

That Austin Healey did eventually make it back onto the road in the form of a reasonably nice restoration. Incredible car, with the tilt back and down racing windshield and about half the body formed in Aluminum... the doors, the center panel the length of the body and the trunk lid and hood as we call them in the US.

Those parts would be called the "bonnet" and "boot" for hood and trunk.

That's my AH 100-4 story and I'm stickin' to it.

Another fond memory courtesy of RFF... thank you!

The Austin Healy 100-4, I just saw one last week in a man's garage. He drove it daily 30 years ago. Now it is awaiting restoration. They are still around - just hiding.

What a great shot for all sorts of reasons, not the least the colour!

Come on guys, enough of this 'cars as art stuff' I want to see more cars and people or people enjoying cars or action or whatever! Death to the inanimate object!

Minor meeting by gray1720, on Flickr


Especially for Boat Race day! by gray1720, on Flickr

Fun with diptychs - Agfa Parat half-frame, so each full frame used as a themed pair. It's harder than you think after the first half dozen or so, especially as the film seems to never end!

My car; my age ('65 was a good year), and I got married in it (in a Vegas drive through) 10 years ago. I still have the original paper work.
