    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.

    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...

    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.

    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?

    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).

    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!

    First clip, back in the days of black and white movies, the roads must have been really bad. Drivers move the steering wheel back and forth a lot, when driving down a straight road....lol
    Sometimes it is better to travel than to arrive.
