Healey returns
The classic Healey sports car will make a comeback this year as an open-top
two-seater in the mold of the 3000, famous for its rallying exploits in the
1950s. The revival was sparked by the sale of the Healey name by the family
of founder Donald Healey to British classic sports car builder HFI.

U.S. sales are possible by 2008, following a European debut in 2007. A
prototype, with a steel space-frame chassis, composite body and powered by a
Volvo inline-six, already exists. An entry-level Sprite two-seater is also
part of the plan.
