He stoped by to visit and my Dad took an 8mm movie of me behind the wheel. I can say this, I wouldn’t act much different today if I found myself in the driver’s seat. I’d just be pounding the gas peddle, not the horn. But the grin on my face would be same. I created this letterpress card to commemorate the Austin Healey 3000 as a true...
