Met "Ron", first time, at the Antique Drags/Barona Raceway-yesterday. No build form, no camera.302", Richmond 5 spd. with 8" Ford(2.76) ratio. This is adequate ratio because of, short tires, 1/1 in 5th and LOW first gear.Interesting point he brought up,longer doors than many Brit sports cars, helps the ingress/egress factor. Ahhh the smell of Nitro nectar..... roverman.

The JH makes a nice base for a swap. Still relatively cheap and have great handling. Check out the links on this page: [www.modifiedhealeys.org]

What is a "swap" ?

Where does swap end and major renovation begin ? Using just the "tub", the glass, doors and registration, = more than swap ? Surely, "AC 6.1" is high speed pursuit gone ballistic ? To be continued, roverman.
