    Smitty

    Sad news.

    We lost a dear friend and long time neighbor last week.

    Smith "Smitty" Brody passed away at 92 after spending a full day in his shop doing what he loved. Hard to put into words his impact.

    A few photos. Full throttle 'til 92.

    PS: I drove our Healey 420 miles each way to attend his service. I am sure he would have approved!

    I did not personally know him, but I certainly benefitted from his imagination and his dedication to Healeys! RIP Smith.

    Many big Healey racers have greatly benefited from this engineering ingenuity. Thank you Smitty - RIP.
