    Re: Winter Driving

    Thank you all for the thoughtful advice and personal adventures. As I'm not concerned about the sparkling new ca rshow version of the Healey (except to appreciate the tremendous amount of effort that goes into it and the beauty of the finished result) I'm 72 and for most of 20 years my car was being slowly worked on as I learned how to do each job to my approximate satisfaction I and has just been usable (approx 50% of the time when it's not suffering some repair problem). The Healey has always been my archetype of a true sports car and, for whatever time remains for me (after I turn 100) I want to get the most pleasure out of it as I can

    Due to a suggestion made here I ordered a 500 wt dash heater/ defroster/ fan which should solve the problem.

    Now, on to the next...

    Best of luck and keep us informed how it goes. Wiring is not my strong point, but I would think you may want to run that heater through a fused wire directly off the battery.

    Well good luck with the winter driving. Hopefully they don't salt the roads in your neighborhood. I look forward to seeing a post with a picture of your Healey hauling a Christmas tree.
