For those of you who race or want to race this may be the book for you.

Just the thought of secrets from these guys (and the photo of a 3000 on the cover)
was enough for me to want the book.

I just got it so I can't give you a report on the info...you'll have to get your own copy from Midlife Classics.

I got it years ago. No new "secrets", but I'm a history buff, especially Healey History. It was a nice addition to the collection.

You got that right Doug.

Instead of a list of usable engineering changes or modifications the book seems to comprise a hodge lodge
of correspondence (letters) between various members of the crews.

I too enjoy the historical aspect but I was hoping for some significant performance improvements.

Doug,

Did you sneak into my house and take that photo of your books?

I attached a shot of some of the other titles I've accumulated in the past 45 years.

Hah, too funny......

My book collection has now overflowed into the race shop, but I still keep my favorites in the den. The book that did have some good information is
The BMC/BL Competitions Department, 25 Years in Motorsports by Bill Price.

Hi Peter/Doug,

Wow, recently a document from Geoff Healey addressing hot radiator air recirculation was posted that showed they had understood this condition back then when a few of us were only now hypothesizing this condition. Yes, it would have been nice if this was commonly known but, I guess, it would not have eliminated all the thought as it is part of the joy of having a Healey...solving the issue. I wonder if they already knew what caused "Scuttle Shake"?

Great library,
Ray(64BJ8P1)
