Vintage Racing - 1950s Indy Cars startup and race. LOUD!!!
Chris Ashworth records a series of 1950s Indy Cars at Michigan
International Speedway. This was a vintage racing event that was associated
with the Concours d'elegance of America, where these cars were on display
after this event.
This event was incredible! I got to wander in the pits and the garage area.
You will hear these cars starting up right from the tailpipes, and you will
see them driving on the track from the pits.

Austin Healey 100 6 3000 The Classics
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. In
1958 my sister turned 15, old enough to drive. Rosa thought it would be
real cool to drive to school in the very unique sports car.
I do not remember Rosa at least getting familiar with driving in the family
car, at that point, a 1957 Chevrolet Belair 4 door hardtop. No, she
confirmed that dad wanted her to learn on the Healey. I was taken along
with dad and Rosa, I sat in the area behind the seats. We drove out into
the country where there was a lovely 2 lane road, no trees or utility poles
to hit, grassy expanses with cows and bulls grazing. Straight in both
directions not a soul was in sight. Rosa and dad exchange seats and dad
started to explain the procedure for pushing down the clutch, selecting
first gear, then gently pushing down on the gas pedal while letting up the
clutch. In reality the way it happened was, she pushed on the gas not
realizing how quickly the engine would respond, my father was warning her
to let up on the accelerator she slid her foot off the clutch. The momentum
created by the action caused her foot to push the accelerator al the way to
the floor. Both my father and I were shoved back, he pinned against the
seat and I smacked my head against the rear cowl. Rosa was frozen into
inaction. The spinning tires were forcing the car forward under full
throttle and it started to veer onto the grassy shoulder heading towards
the pasture fence and a bull. Dad was able to overcome the g forces and was
able to reach the ignition switch just in time before our collision with
the fence and the curious bull. She eventually did learn that day, but the
reality of driving a race car to school quickly got to be too much. Dad let
her use the 57 Chevy!
The 100 6 replaced the 100 4 in 1957. The six was better in every way. A
smoother, beautiful sounding six replacing the tractor like four. A much
better shifting transmission, disc brakes as standard, the 2 inches of
additional wheel base to accommodate the longer engine mad for a more
comfortable car all around. The car still retained the side curtains and 2
seats with a 4 seat version being added to the line up. Later the 3000
would eventually become a Gentleman's Express tourer. One thing I truly
loved about the 100 4 was the fold down windscreen, from the six on they
were conventional fixed windshields.
