Mr So Called Healey Man,
If your are indeed a *Healey* man than you would know what a Sprite is.
The Sprite is the "A" model of Healeys, not the "B" model!
It is also Donald and Geoffrey Healeys favorite model Healey.
The Sprite is the quicker, better handling Healey.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, I do not behold a B model Healey,
If it were not for the Sprite, the *big* Healeys would be just another
little British car, like the MGB.
And as far as prices go, My neighbor just paid more for his minivan then
most Healeys are worth fully restored! And he doesn't trailer it
anywhere. (I wonder why?)
