Hi Dudes and Dudettes!

Been a while (I think) since I posted a car, so here goes..
Taken at an RAF Waddington Airshow (but not this years), this was a rival to the MG..

The Austin-Healey 100 is a sports car built from 1953 until 1956.

It was developed by Donald Healey to be produced in-house by Healey's small car company in Warwick..
Healey built a single Healey Hundred for the 1952 London Motor Show, and the design impressed Leonard Lord, Managing Director of Austin so much that a deal was struck with Healey to build it in quantity at Austin's Longbridge factory. The car was renamed the Austin-Healey 100..
The '100' name comes from Donald Healey, who selected the name from the car's ability to reach 100 mph..

It had a 2660cc engine, and 14,634 cars were built in all (plus 5 test cars)..

Enjoy, Mike this is for you mate! New project LOL

Cool low POV, clarity, color and detail in this pic of the handsome MG competitor, Rob. The lawn needs mowing, but at least its grass as opposed to pavement.

Thanks so much for this Rob.

Take one very pretty small sports car and put in the engine from an Austin Atlantic and you have a very serious MG contender.
Of course later they shoehorned in the 3000 from the Austin Westminster and then it really flew. Again from the day when British sportscars made the whole world sit up and take notice. I miss Austin cars.

Beautiful capture mate... Thanks :)

14,634 cars were built and we had one when I was growing up! It was a exactly the same colour as this, but it had a red fold down roof. Dad went and promptly had it dyed black! It was his pride and joy. Thanks for the memories mate.
