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.

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

Austin Healey 3000 Rally Car
In the 1960's car manufacturers proved the durability of their products,
not by offering
7 year warranties, but by entering officially organised long distance, road
based driving competitions against rival manufacturers. These International
events called Rallies caught the imagination of the public and became
annual fixtures. Lasting for several days, over thousands of kilometres, on
rough roads and inhospitable environments, it was a good way to prove new
The British Motor Corporation (BMC) realised that the Austin Healey, in
particular the 3000 model, could be the basis for a winning car. They
developed it into a world beater and became very organised, employing the
best UK and controversially for the time, Scandinavian Drivers.
The most impressive victory, was the gruelling 1960 Liege-Rome-Liege won
by an all female crew, with Pat Moss (Stirling's sister) driving and Anne
The effort was truly heroic and the girls overcame hallucinations caused
by sleep deprivation, while still managing to drive flat out. At the time,
the very thought of the so called gentler sex, beating all the best male
drivers in the world was an unprecedented achievement and did much to
uplift the image of 'women drivers' everywhere.
The 2912cc works spec engine, typically runs triple 45DCOE Weber
carburetors, a 300 degree cam and a full race alloy head. Outputs are
typically between 200 and 300 bhp. The output varies with the compression
ratio and the choice of carburettor choke diameters, dependant on whether
you want low down grunt for rallying or top end for racing. This car is a
rally car and will accelerate to 60 mph in about 5.5 seconds and can almost
The Achilles' Heel of the Big Healey, was cockpit heat (from the set back
engine) and a lack of ground clearance. This car has the works 'in door' or
'sill mounted' Exhaust to get the Exhaust pipes out from under the car..
The gearbox is a straight cut 4 speed, with overdrive (a sort of ratio
extender) on 3rd and 4th, giving 6 ratios. In this car, like the works
machines, the overdrive switch is ideally mounted on the gear lever.
Fuel consumption averages around 14mpg, dropping to around 7mpg when
pressing on. A long range 18 gallon works style fuel tank is therefore a

1955 Austin Healey 100
his is a 1955 Austin Healey 100. But this is not your English country road
Austin Healey. This car is a rocket. This is the car Carroll Shelby would
have built if Austin Healey would have sold him the chassis and bodies when
he first conceived his Cobra (Shelby raced Austin Healeys). It is fitted
with a 370hp Corvette engine, original Cobra gauges on polished aluminum
dash, oil cooler, 4-speed close ratio Muncie gearbox with Hurst shifter,
Ford positraction differential. Custom wheels and disk brakes all around.
For all that, the V-8 engine is 75 pounds lighter than the old Healy 4
banger. The body is perhaps the most beautiful AH in the country. The car
is in show condition (and was featured in Rod & Custom magazine in April
2013). All seams have been filled, extraneous trim removed so the sexy
Austin Healey style really stands out as it should. New paint, new
upholstery, clean undercarraige. Firewall and radiator cowling in stainless
steel. 6000 miles on the engine and body since total rebuild.Car can be
seen at our Southampton NY Showroom, Monday-Saturday. For more details call
