I have the press release right here:

"Nanjing Automobile Corp, which thinks it bought the rights to the
Austin-Healey name, but probably didn't, announced today it is partnering with
"The Scooter Store" to revive the classic British sports car.  Company
president Dong Mi Han, affectionately known around the company as "DMH",
stated, "Given the demographics of former Healey owners, we are excited to
bring back this rememberance of their youth so they can enjoy "motoring" in
their Golden Years."  In addition to the base model, Nanjing plans to release
a limited edition "LeMans" edition with two-tone paint, wire wheels,and an
uprated battery with louvered cover.  A sound generator will recreate the
distinctive Healey sound.  Price has yet to be announced, but should be "At
little or no cost to you."

Last week in Wendover, UT at dinner, there were several mentions of the need
to get back to England for the announcement of the "New" Healey. I assume this
refers to the same proposal that we heard about 3-5 years ago. Was something
announced? Does any one know anything? Was there really a car that was
