I'm curious to hear your comments about this one! [www.britishv8.org]

We hope to have the full "How It Was Done" story in time for the next issue of British V8!

Here's a teaser photo:

Got a hot-rodded Healey? Got a photo of someone else's Healey? A story lead? Send them in!

So, nobody had any comments about this one?

I guess we'll just cancel the article and stop worrying about Healeys.

If no one is interested in them anymore...

Ok Curtis, you asked for it. It's very yellow! How's that for a comment? Actually it's a neat car, I just don't check the Healey pages on the forum very often, I suppose I should check there more often.

I love Healeys! I just can't afford one.

I would love to see this one in live & in person.

Carl, I agree and also can't afford one. That's what prompted my latest project "PMH" (Poor Man's Healey) which is an MGA with a 4.0 inline 6. Nearest I can come to a Healey.

Yep, it's a blower alright! I've updated the gallery page with more pictures and some basic specs... but we're working on a much more elaborate article (or more) for the next edition.

To be clear, the Healey V12 above belongs to Martin Jansen.

Just to confirm: we WILL have a second article about Martin Jansen's Healeys in the next edition of British V8. Ken Hiebert has been over to Martin's shop for a visit and he's come back with some very cool photos plus a bunch of notes. The hard part is narrowing and focusing, because Martin has so much going on!
