The Austin Healey - or 'Big' Healey - is one of the iconic British sports cars. The first Austin-Healey 100 model was unveiled at the 1952 Earls Court Motor Show, and when the last car rolled off the production line in 1967, over 73,000 examples had been built.

He is married, living on the Shropshire/Hereford border, and his other interests include amateur dramatics, swing and ballroom dancing, British butterflies, steam railways ... and good food and wine.
