The Restoration of the First Production Austin Healey
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
