Did you wash & wax your Austin-Healey 100, or drive to a scenic viewpoint?
Fire it up for the first time after a rebuild or make an in-car or drive-by video?
Maybe it's just a nice day and you feel like using that fancy new camera...

A glorious Sunday morning a couple of weeks ago for an early morning run half way across the top of the South Island here in New Zealand..........Cool air, winding interesting road as we drove over the range and the throb of Healey exhausts........Bliss!

Driving your Healey for 57 years - a record without a doubt Congratulations.

Here in the Northern end of the South Island of N.Z. we have a Healey owner who has owned his car for 38 years it's one of the early ones with the 2 part dashboard.

As you have driven the car in many countries why not add New Zealand to the list by coming to our Bi-annual Rally at Easter 2015 based here in Nelson. After the Rally there is a Tour of about 6-7 days to the Southern end of the South Island - its very pretty scenery and great roads for Austin Healeys.............................Got you interested? May I suggest you look at www.austinhealeyclubnz.org.nz for full details which are up on the club's website.

Cheers

Ahh Geoff, thanks for the invitation. Actually I have been to Christchurch many years ago. I flew in on an US Air Force C-130, destined for McMurdo which was socked in so a short turn around headed back north. Honestly I would love to visit New Zealand for so many reasons. But it is not in the cards, at least for now. Between Washington DC and Tokyo, my hands are full.

Yes, the Healey is part of my DNA. Purchased it in the Territory of Hawaii, before it was a state, in November 1957, it was about a year and half old, college student had to shed it, near stole it from him, even to the extend I am still rather embarrassed. All original, save the dashboard, as daily driver I had to have an amp metre and voltage metre to keep track of what Lucas was doing to me. Hanging them in pods was not very wise so in 1961 I installed built a dashboard that looks akin to the Morgan dashboard of the day. Some what like Gerry Coker's original dashboard design, I have a period radio in the dash. The purists here abouts hate the dashboard but it was functional and necessary for a daily driver. In 1967 I also converted to front disk brakes, using BJ8 parts. I am considering reverting back to original on those two systems, I still have the original parts that I removed to make the mods. I am also thinking of converting to 100M. Why, only heaven knows.

I allow no one to work on the automobile, I have taught myself.. I even learned to paint, built a paint booth in my garage. I would give myself a B for the recent paint job. Ticks over nicely at 500 rpm, smooth as silk. Everything works properly.

Most all parts are from the factory car. I replaced water pump, oil pump, cylinder head (3 times), gas tank, petrol pump, tail light fixtures, pistons, valves Some brightwork is original, but have rechromed some of it. It all looks factory fresh.

Has been registered and in running condition since I acquired it. I honestly do not know how many miles, but would guess 157,000. Original odometer shows 57K and change but not sure it was working all during ownership.

I was in Japan for just over 2 years, had a blast with the local car clubs, and of course I was immune for local traffic enforcement. The most fun was Singapore, I could go nowhere without folks stopping me and wanting to know about the car.

I did a fair job documenting via photographs history of the car. I have photos of Donald Healey with the car, who loved the dashboard design and also photos with Geoffrey Healey

Friend of mine from Sarasota, Florida is a friend of Gerry Coker, also lives in Sarasota.

Happy Healey-ing.

Thanks for welcome. I am going to order the front light mounts and rear sprite bumperettes from cape international. I have been spending all of my energy sorting mechanicals, cosmetics and styling are on back burner for immediate future.
