    Pourquoi viens-tu si tard ?

    I think the translation of the movie title is, "I Should Have Had a Rollbar"

    It's obvious why he came so late ... he had a rollover.

    Too bad there special effects back then amounted rolling a "real" Healey. Enough to make a grown man weep! I'm all for lighting the torch's and forming a lynch mob...what do you say boys?

    Think I can see his problem. The grille opening is too small, only nine gills showing- should be ten. That'll scare the girls off for sure. Not to mention the BJ8 indicators and BN2 headlight rims.

    C'est horrible!

    Another nice looking Healey bites the dust. I also liked that black/silver KPH speedometer, never seen one of those.

    I feel so much safer now, knowing the windscreen and hood frame can stand up to a roll over! NOT...

    All things considered, I thought the Healey held up rather well! Unlike the driver...too bad they had to ruin a perfectly good Healey for a B movie, or any movie for that matter. Should have used a fiat!

    Notice that they never clearly showed any damage to the Healey. I'm not sure that they actually damaged it.

    They placed some debris on the front shroud to simulate the result of an impact, and they apparently crumpled a bonnet, but if you notice there is no clear footage of damage to the rest of the car. Hollywood! (Foreign Subdivision).

    Looks like he maintained good body gaps even after the roll over! Impressive!

    Dang! That door appeared to open easier after the roll over than before he got into it. (Well, that's one way to adjust it).
