    July 1962. Hollywood Walk of Fame at Vine St and Hollywood Blvd.
    When Judy's relatives visited California from Wisconsin they always visited Hollywood, Disneyland before going on to Las Vegas.
    Here are Uncle Joe and Aunt Doris checking out the celebrity star for actress Dinah Shore.
    (Note Aunt Doris's large purse to hold all those Las Vegas coins !)
    They are across the road from the famous Capitol Studios building where many well known songs/ artists were recorded.

    Behind them is a Austin Healey (BN 4 ? )with steel disc wheels and hub caps which is a rare sight today.
    (Note the lack of traffic and a convertible Morris Minor approaching the lights in the background. )

    " Austin Healey (BN 4 ? )with steel disc wheels and hub caps which is a rare sight today "
    Ken H, yes would say BN4, as definitely 100 -Six, has the crease in the bonnet [ hood in the USA ] and those steel wheels would be very rare in the USA.

    Interesting timing of your post, as BMC BOY [ Ross Cammick ] called in to today and delivered a 1;18 scale Model that his nephew didn't want anymore, Not a Healey 100 though, but a model of my other great sports car, a Triumph TR4 in French/Powder Blue. A good find for the collection.
    Ross still has his BN7, the two seater version of the first 3000, but arrived in the daily driver a Honda HRV. No photos to show.

    I had an envelope A3 size with the same image on like the second above - acquired at Snowmass Colorado in 1982 which has vanished over the intervening period of 38 years and 7 house moves..

    Arthur Kennard - 1954 100 that became the Healey - Corvette.

    Kelvin Brown wrote about the photo ;
    " Looks like the Lake Bryndwr circuit with " Pop " Fisher of Kaikoura in his Ford 10 Special on the tail of maybe Arthur Kennard ? Austin Healey, likely the tight bit at the back before turning out on to the main straight, a good photo. ".

    Photo appeared in the article by Allan Dick on the Healey Corvette in NZ Classic Driver issue #63 [ Nov-Dec 2015 ]
    with the notation
    " Arthur Kennard raced in standard four cylinder form [ for the 1955/56 and 1956/57 ] and is seen here at the little known Bryndwr " lake " circuit being chased by a midget ",
    The Modifications took place in mid late 1957 in time for the 1957/58 racing season.

    " Plates History

    Plate Effective Date

    The plate is stated as " personalised " and is I presume the plate it had when it had a huge accident in January 1967.
    Car was " lost " [ stored away ] until around 1984 and rebuilt around 2012/13

    The story is worth reading.
