Updated June 2002

This will be the last update prior to Open Roads 2002. Richard and Blair have been putting in 12 hr plus days working on the car and are pleased to announce that the car was brought to life on June 11th. It fired up on the first rotation. Dozens of tasks that should have taken 20 minutes turned into 2 hr remedies, however despite the trials and tribulations as of  June 14th, 2002, the car will be ready to load onto the transport along with six other Austin Healeys to travel from Canada to Lake Tahoe Nevada.

The 100 Flash is the very original style.  It was cast from an original by Roger Moment, and it differs in a number of details from the regular badge.
