    I absolutely had to have a pair of those shades after seeing a look-alike in the Vilem B. Haan catalog:



    Of course, mine were the $1.49 Japanese knock-off version.

    More Russian to keep Reid sharp. Note the second Healey behind Perry's shoulder near the end. I bet it's the same car that was used in the escape scene that was parked after the first scene was completed.

    Now this is getting silly! It's like a watching a master magician in action. You know it is a trick, but you can't figure out how they do it?! I can understand how you might find a movie where and AH features significantly, but how do you find a movie with a background 100, where if you blink you miss it?

    Hey Hugh, we're forming a cult here - there's bound to be some strange stuff involved. Try not to think about it.

    So, Rick...you've got, like, a hundred more of these in your stash and you're going to dole them out one-at-a-time to keep this going as the greatest thread in Healey Forum history?

    I'm enjoying it!

    I've got a few more and yeah, I'm on a one a day schedule. I'm glad you're enjoying it. And don't worry, once I get to the end, I'll reveal my "secret"

    If you're a Spanish-speaker, this film looks like it could be an interesting watch. "Operacion Fangio" is based on the kidnapping of Juan Manuel Fangio prior to the 1958 Cuban Grand Prix



    Here's the short Healey clip:



    And here's a link to the full movie:

    The headrests make me think this is a replica. Thought it might be an HMC, but the fenders don't seem to have the flare the HMC cars do:

    Stamped into the bloody pattern of today’s youth. Alust for violence. Punks in high powered cars. Riders on a roadwithout reason. They’re jazzed up and power mad. All animals andtwice the furry inflaming the scars of fiery hate. The law is their enemy, agospel of cars. Cold horror that stalks the midnighthighways. Meet them and die, Pops. They’re . . . . . British CarGangs? Where can I sign up?
