    This isn't the fastest Healey. They actually got slower, and heavier. This model is a cruiser, and a very nice one at that. The older 3000MkIs were fast for their time. They were for hill climbing, and if you have one of the faster ones, well it gets pretty intense. I mean this one even has a luggage rack. You want a performance Healey, look at a 100-6 or a MkI. Still a nice car though. Its a REAL ***** to change a tire though, hehehe.

    This car looks pretty good. I would love to cruise around in it on a sunny day. It's not the power that counts here, but the feeling of riding a classic cabriolet... Everyone who has driven a classic cabriolet knows the feeling...

    My mother received one of these when she graduated from University. She often cries when she sees one.. Memories I guess. I agree with her that this is truly a classic car.

    classic styling, a nice step (or two) up from a MGB<!-- Signature -->
  14. Very good looking and nicely trimmed, a great car to drive over the sandy Sunday beaches, over the beautiful sights of the world, for the exhiliration of this car's profound beauty. Nice headlights, elegantly stylish, a gorgeous car.
