    Re: We have parted ways

    The new owner got a beautiful car. I've had my bugeye for 43 years and my BJ7 for 35. Moving them on would be like cutting off an arm or a leg. Thankfully, there's still some more years left in...

    Re: Hide the Women and Children

    This car was built locally to me in Massachusetts. I'm surprised they didn't show it with the top up as it's been chopped a few inches. Friends of the owner told me he had a small trailer he'd tow...

    Re: Austin Healey 3000 in Modsports

    Dougie,

    I was just commenting on Nick's post that Bill had owned one of Syd Segal's modsports cars. Wasn't looking for anything, but thanks for asking.

    Re: Hex Nut 2BA?

    Those are British Association (BA) threads and don't correspond to SAE. You're going to have to find a mail order source.
