    Love the long empty stretches of motorways with the dull family cars well to the left in the slow lanes and the exciting sports roars fast in the fast lane...clear sky of course.

    I watched it, quite good...

    Though some of the old film clips fell down on continuity. Like they were talking about Austins building cars in the fifties and the film clip showed workers doing bodies from the thirties.

    I watched today too. Some interesting comments, and some great footage. Somehow I expected a bit of a more modern take on it.

    Very Healey-oriented...

    Outstanding was the lack of cars like the Turners, TVRs, Ginettas and the like.

    In the commentary on the Sprite it was as if the commentator believed that 'frog-eyed' was an official part of its title. And they didn't mention that a primary reason for those lights was because of height requirements for headlights.

    Still good to watch, but flawed...

    I apologize for not presenting a perfect movie, at least I enjoyed it as did many of my fellow Moss Motors employees.
    (You can see why when you see the range of client's cars we deal with at Moss Motors "Shop by Model". besides Mazda. )

    No need to apologise...

    It was well worth watching.

    No apology needed or anything. Well worth the time to watch. (Even if one of the "experts" was disparaging about fibreglass bodied cars )

    Totally rubbished kit cars, I feel...

    And didn't the EX181 also do time with a Healey engine?

    I know Healeys built a head with four SUs (two on each side) for a record-breaker.
