December Inspiration
 
Take a look at these couple of fantastic period Healey/Australiana scenes from the movie On The Beach with Ava Gardner and Gregory Peck.  It was a strange choice to dub a V8 exhaust note into the first scene when they had one of the best ever exhaust notes avaiable from the same source fabulous visuals.  The second scene shot from Pt Lonsdale looking across the heads to Pt Nepean, Portsea, etc is about as good as '50s Australiana gets, I love it.  Go to http://www.tubechop.com/watch/4309440 andhttp://www.tubechop.com/watch/4309457
 
From November
Pat Cooper and Richard Mason big Healey's at Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb earlier this year.  Go to
http://www.tubechop.com/watch/3922088  
 
From October
Check out the Jackson, Duffy and Goldsmith Big Healey Group S action from Retrofest 2014 at Sydney Motorsport Park, Eastern Creek back in May.  Go to http://vimeo.com/106238742 for the 14th September edition of SBS' Speedweek program.  Drag to minute 47:00 on the slider to go straight to the start of the Group S race.
