Once you own a Healey something happens inside, and when you find yourself without one, you find that you want another one. This is what happened to me after selling my award winning 1959 Austin Healey Sprite a couple of years ago. I had owned my Sprite for over 30 years and found that as I got older, I was getting bigger and my car seemed to be getting smaller. I knew that I wanted another Healey and thought it would be pretty cool to have a car that was made the same year I was born. So, I started looking at cars by Donald Mitchell Healey (DMH) that were made in 1953.
