The Loudest Bugeye Sprite in Vintage Racing?
Video from three races of my poor little 1959 Sprite that was wrongfully
accused of being "too loud" and cost me a 1st place finish at Blackhawk
Farms Raceway with the VSCDA. Take a listen and you be the judge. Warning:
I have been told this little 1275cc car is capable of deafening mere

1956 Austin Healey 100 4 M LeMans
The Classics Austin Healey.
1n 1956 my father came home with a stray that followed him from Sebring
Florida. It was a Austin Healey BN2 100 S factory race car, alloy body,
Reno red in color. For all intents and purpose a race car on the street.
The S was by far the rarest of all Healey's, 50 made and an additional 5
had made with the aluminum head, no overdrive and disc brakes. This one was
one of the 5.From mid 1956 to 1958 this was my fathers primary race car.

Austin Healey 100M sound + accelerate!! 1080p HD
In 1955 and 1956 a special Austin Healey 100/ M version was made available
to the public. The car was fitted with a high compression cylinder head,
thus increasing power from 90 bhp. up to 110 bhp. The 100/ M can be
recognized by it's bonnet with louvers, it's special two position
windscreen and the Lucas 24 heures du Mans headlamps (Be warned: many
recently "M" converted standard 100/4's are around! The real thing is worth
about 30% more!). The Austin Healey 100/M was built 1159 times.
I recorded this beautiful Austin Healey 100/ M in a small village called
Domburg (The Netherlands). This car has an amazing sound!

THE BEST OF MOTORING IN THE THIRTIES
To buy the DVD go to http://www.motorfilms.com
A compilation of classic original travelogues from the Austin and Morris
Archives re-mastered for DVD.
The 1930s was an era when motoring was still fun. Small cars such as the
Austin Seven and the Morris Minor carried a modest price tag and brought
motoring within the reach of the middle classes for the first time. They
celebrated the freedom this relatively new form of transport gave them by
exploring the length and breadth of the British Isles.
These charming travelogues, produced by Morris Motors and the Austin Motor
Company, were intended to demonstrate the virtues of their products. Along
the way they captured a snapshot of Thirties Britain - its scenery, its
people, and its way of life. So jump into the passenger seat and take a
trip back in time, through the picturesque villages of England, up into the
magnificent mountains of Scotland, and past the impressive monuments of

British Motor Corporation Story
BMC was the largest British car company of its day, with (in 1952) 39
percent of British output, producing a wide range of cars under brand names
including Austin, Morris, MG, Austin-Healey and Wolseley as well as
commercial vehicles and agricultural tractors. The first chairman was Lord
Nuffield (William Morris) but he was replaced in August 1952 by Austin's
Leonard Lord who continued in that role until his 65th birthday in 1961 but
handing over, in theory at least, the managing director responsibilities to
his deputy George Harriman in 1956.
BMC's headquarters were at the Austin plant at Longbridge, near Birmingham
and Austin was the dominant partner in the group mainly because of the
chairman. The use of Morris engine designs was dropped within 3 years and
all new car designs were coded ADO from "Amalgamated Drawing Office". The
Longbridge plant was up to date, having been thoroughly modernised in 1951,
and compared very favourably with Nuffield's 16 different and often old
fashioned factories scattered over the English Midlands. Austin's
management systems however, especially cost control and marketing, were not
as good as Nuffield's and as the market changed from a shortage of cars to
competition this was to tell. The biggest-selling car, the Mini, was
famously analysed by Ford Motor Company who concluded that BMC must be
losing £30 on every one sold. The result was that although volumes held up
well throughout the BMC era, market share fell as did profitability and
hence investment in new models, triggering the 1966 merger with Jaguar Cars
to form British Motor Holdings (BMH), and three years later leading to the
government sponsored merger of BMH with Leyland Motor Corporation.
