I have always loved British cars and my Mother has never understood it. But she has never discouraged my passion for cars and actually allowed me to buy my first car as a project 1969 Austin Healey Sprite MKIV.
I love this car and I hate that 7 years later I was never able to finish her. But I will be moving back home soon and mom will be allowing me to put my car in the garage and finish it. This video (below) is really lighting the flame under me to finish my car and also has reignited the flame I had to buy a big Healey too. My dream big Healey is a 100-6 BN6
That would be the I6 2 seater version of the Austin Healey 100.The BMC C-Series motor is an overhead valve 2.6L inline 6 making 117 bhp and 149 ft-lbs of torque. This would push the 100-6 0-60 in 11.2 seconds and up to a top speed of 111 mph. That doesn’t seem like a lot, but in 1956 you have imagine what that kind of speed was like.
This is an absolute dream car of mine and I have been contemplating selling my GTO and trying to buy one of these. As much as I love my GTO, she isn’t perfect and I would rather sell her off and get a classic car and then one day down the line get a GTO that I find perfect to me. Any way it is just a thought at the moment.
