    2016 Austin Healey Club Day..........

    It's the ''Austin Healey Club Rally'' on the 3rd July at Scarborough beach front, cars will be arriving at about 9.30 - 10 am.

    Weather permitting there should be a good turn out of cars again.

    I'll be taking this one

    Beautiful cars they are. We see a few down here in Melb and I was talking to a fellow who'd just finished building his, he came in through the gates, went over a speed bump and damaged the rear panel underneath.
    Took it in his stride.

    A thoroughly enjoyable day with a great number of cars turning up, glad you enjoyed it numpty

    Did you notice that rather nice blue bug eye sprite with over 250hp at the wheels ?? It hasn't been overtaken on a circuit in 4 years !!

    I shudder to think what has been spent on that Bug Eye

    The widened 3000 was an interesting car too.

    Did the widened 3000 have a Rolls Royce motor in it Numpty? I think it was known as an Austin Healey 4000. I saw one in the flesh about 35 years ago.

    So the Austin 3 litre motor Jerry? From my quick research on the internet, there was three of the 4 litre Rolls powered 6' widened big Healys built as prototypes. What might have been. The story goes that BMC didn't want a direct competitor to the E-type.

    Cheers, Mick.

    Yes the RR FB60 4litre from the Vlanden Plas Princess R as well as its' rear axle which necessitated the 6" fillet in the chassis.
