    Re: Custom seats?

    I have had a 2000 Miata NB and now have a 2010 Miata NC. I have measured the seats in both cars and in my opinion, the seat bases (without modification) are too wide for the Healey.

    When I re-did...

    Re: Uppity Rear End

    About 15 years ago, I bought a new set of rear springs for my '59 100-6. They were left from a group buy our club made.

    IF you did happen to have an unmolested original "Cobra" engine, it is probably worth north of $250,000. There were few made and like 100S Healeys, most have been accounted for.

    In MY experience, he is correct.



    Well, it might. A lot depends on how rough the peel is and how much post-buff gloss you get on the clear. Remember, the color coat is a matte...

    I think that your revised ad is MUCH more attractive and a MUCH easier read. It should attract a buyer.
