$189,000 for a reimagined Healey.

SBC, T5.

Cut down windscreen and doesn't appear to have a convertible top. I suppose if you can afford that sort of money you can buy the optional force field to keep the rain off.

Good that someone likes the big H enough to put this sort of time and money into it. Now all they have to do is find another person who likes it enough to buy it.

As modified enthusiasts, we tend to eat our young by saying things like "That's stupid money!" when we should be saying "I hope he gets every cent!"

By the looks of that car, and what he put in it for a drive train, I would be willing to bet if any of us drove that car we would be doing whatever to find the money to buy that beautiful piece of machinery. Wow what a car!!!!!!

I guess I just don't think it's worth that sorta money.. nothing crazy about the engine either, you don't even get the fuel injection benefits for that much money.
