Looking for article on McMahon 'nasty boy'

Somewhere in my wanderings among British sites or recent readings, I stumbled on an article about a black Healey 'nasty boy' that was wrecked during a hill climb then repaired and repainted yellow. The image I remember from the article showed the newly refurbished ride with the owner and a couple of other people standing in front of the car. Recently, I had the occasion to meet the gentleman's son, Pat McMahon, and told him of the article. I have since been unable to locate it and am hoping that someone out there recalls the piece and can provide information. I promised Pat I would send it to him once I found it again. Thanks in advance to anyone out there who can help.

Small world. I'm putting a 2000 Explorer 5.0 into my BJ7 and met Pat online at ffcobra.com. I spent a great day with Pat and his dad pouring over his new car and his old chassis getting ideas for my swap. Great guys, both of them. I think the article you're looking for is in one of the old Wheelspinners. You can contact Leroy at wierdwillie@centurytel.net
