Hi all,

Just back from the round trip to Monterey for the International Healey Week.

Many thanks to the Golden Gate Austin Healey Club who hosted a great event.
It was well worth the drive.

Many highlights of the event included meeting many of the people on this
list, the Rally out to Big Sur, the car show in Pacific Grove and the laps
of Laguna Seca.


The 1958 Pacific Green BN6 performed well and didn’t let me down. 

The only casualties were the tach cable which broke two days into the trip
and not replaced until two days left, the rear exhaust pipe bracket vibrated
itself apart, (bailing wire fix and it was already near failure and I forgot
that last minute repair), the driver side wiper arm jumped ship in a
torrential downpour at dusk, and a pressure wave from a semi truck blew out
the cheap aftermarket plexi glass from the passenger side screen during
yesterday’s snowstorm.
