From the original austinhealey.com web site. Owner Ken Freese:
"A Healey Owner Since 16
I've had Healey's since I was 16 and living on a farm in Iowa. My first 100-6 was purchased for $850 in December 1968. It was hit on the way home from the seller by a Chrysler wagon. It was ready to go again in the spring. A couple of years later that car was hit again and totaled. I then got a 66 3000 Mk III for $950. I rolled it (my fault this time) and it took a few years to get it back together.
In the meantime I got married and moved to Southern California bringing the BJ8 when I needed another daily driver. I found a 100S in a driveway just walking by one day and bought it. It was a rolling basked case and I thought that I would have to wait until retirement to get started. I sold the 66 BJ8 and soon bought a straighter 65 BJ8, white w red interior. Because of an overseas job assignment in Australia, I was able to get started on the 100S sooner than retirement and finished it New Years Eve 1994. We've done well on the concours circuit so far.
Although I still drive it a lot, the BJ8 needs fresh paint and interior so we hope to get started on it soon. My wife, Marsha says the BJ8 is the most reliable car we have. I am a member of the Austin-Healey Association, AH Club, Pacific Centre, and the Jensen Interceptor Owner's Club. We have the S, BJ8, 74 Jensen Interceptor, 78 Ford Fiesta, and 94 Audi 90S. We have a lot of Australian Healey friends and participated in the Healey Hilton a lot. Look us up if you're in the neighborhood (Disneyland)."
