so beautiful that pretty girls would wave you down
on every corner. We did'nt use use the non-working horns thanks to the crappy Lucas wiring harness. The Austin Healey 3000,when
shifted into the electic 3 rd gear downshift,
passed everything with a great deal of noise.
It had a "serious tone" that invited Mustangs and
GTO's to follow it through s-curves. The Jag,
with a curved upward set of chrome pipes just
bellowed "follow me if you can" at 105 in third
gear. They were great sounding cars and fun to
drive. The Z3 2.3 reminds me of their great
handling and sound, unless i'm losing my memory.
