Family member visiting Australia


Jedi Warrior
Does anybody on the forum know the Crombie family? I have been contacted by Sarah Crombie, a lady who is visiting Australia and she tells me her parents have an Austin-Healey and have attended Conclaves. Perhaps they live in the New York area as she mentioned Watkins Glen.
I haven't met Sarah yet because she is currently in Cairns, a town in North Queensland, 1,000 mile from Brisbane.
A member of the Austin-Healey Owners' Club of Qld who lives in Cairns has met Sarah and taken her for a cruise around the Cairns area.
Looking forward to hearing from anybody who knows of the Crombies.

Hi Pan,
I've know Sarah's father for many years when he was a member of Gateway Healey many, many years ago. He and Sarah use to attend Conclaves when Sarah was a younger. The family has moved around quite a bit as Sarah's mom was transferred here and there by her company. He has been a member of many reglonal AHCA clubs. Very nice people.

Thanks for the reply and the information about Sarah's parents. They are Healey people so obviously, they are very nice people!

If you get the Austin Healey Marque mag. Shara wrote a artical about her week long drive with John Nikas and Grace. ( Drive Away Cancer Car). It was a few months ago and was serveral pages long. Very interesting... Shara has been in Healeys all her life.. cut her and she will bleed 20/50 wt oil. Hope you get a chance to meet this remarkable young lady.
