    Actually the Brabham Alfa, not the Mildren Alfa. I think it's Glenn Abbey at the wheel.

    Not what I'd do if I had a Healey!

    I was quite surprised to see Healeys today...

    Driving towards Alice Springs, along a straight stretch of desert road, about eight Healeys in convoy. Fumbled the camera trying to get it up quickly...

    He says his filing system is in disarray.

    Unfortunately many of them have disappeared due to web-hosts changes etc. And others have great 'Photobucket' shadows over them.

    But I have asked Rod if he can post them here. He is a Healey owner.

    I had a bit of a look online and I'm not so interested any more...

    The front suspension is Healey's trailing arm (as on Silverstone etc), which doesn't sit well with me. The rear is okay, a coil...

    That is a pretty good video...

    As for Watkins Glen, NASCAR owns that track these days, so I guess they have to have races there. They'd certainly be interesting at Road America.

    I got all my information from Ian Tate, naturally enough. He told me about Phil Irving's view of it, it was he who called Phil in to look at the engine.

    Does anyone have any suggestions of anything Firth could have dropped into a fuel churn to cause it?
