My Austin Healey has been with me for a long time. In 1972 my secretary told me that she and her husband were soon going to have a baby and that meant their 1959 Austin Healey 100-6 was going to have to be replaced with a vehicle that had doors that locked and windows that would roll up and down.

Really wanting the green one, or more commonly called BRG, I tried to negotiate. I told the dealer if he would match the price of the one in NKC, then we had a deal. The dealer said no way would he match the price, and that I should go buy the car in NKC for the $3900.I purchased the 1967 Colorado Red Austin Healey 3000 MKIII with roll-up windows from Economy Cars LTD for $3900.

“The British Are Coming” took on new meaning for the proprietors of a well-hidden dining establishment in the Hoosier forest. As if the morning’s rally wasn’t enough, and without a rally master to lead them astray, Sir Gayle and Sir Dale, not to be curtailed, but unknowingly “in for it” again, with a full contingent of OVAHC swains and fair maidens in tow, hit the hills and dales again in search of the Ye Olde Hidden Cottage Buried In The Vale…more commonly known as The Farmhouse Café and Tea Room in good old Bean Blossom, Indiana (no kidding!).
