Hello Michael and fellow Healey owners

David and I exchanged e-mails, ideas, and I was the beneficiary of his 
insight. David was an inspiration to
me largely to improve my knowledge of not only the Healeys I have but 
also for their long term welfare.
This is truly a sad day for the Healey community. 

Kind regards
Historian, AHCUSA
