[Healeys] Birthday Greetings

Perry, Bob, et al:    I have owned 15 vehicles in my lifetime, none of which had a name.  I can't even say that I ever called any of them names.  That included a 1932 Plymouth three window coupe that I put a V8 in (first car), a 1941 Cadillac Fleetwood Continental, a Renault Dauphine that I drove for four years while stationed in France (loved it on those French two lane roads), a 1962 MG Midget (Christmas present from Mrs. H.), a Morris Mini, and a 1980 Chevrolet van (dual fuel, gasoline/propane) that had 136,000 + miles on it when purchased.  We modified it a bit as a camper and drove to Alaska and back.  Those and the others were very satisfactory transportation filling our needs at the time.  But - The Healey does have a name.  Wife, Marge, named it "The 1st Mrs. Hartnett".  She claims that I pay more attention the car than I do to her.  It would not be in the best interest of a happy marriage to argue with her about it.  I just try to keep it in balance.

And I will be participating in the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Old Sacramento with the United British Sports Car Club tomorrow.

  Give her a name; "it" sounds like a science fiction film I once saw.

    Happy Birthday HBJ8L39031. Fifty three years and 218,583 miles young.  Its birthday present - a pair of new rear resonators.  I can hear it saying "thank you".
