So, I'm in Huntsville........

And was driving to the hotel when a Jensen Healy caught my attention. Looks like an old restore and saw some rust underneath. Just took a quick look though. It was sitting on a redneck (no offense) lot with a make offer sign. I may go back Wed. after my meetings and check it out. Does anyone know of a shop in the Huntsville, AL area that could take a look at it for me?

The first thing to try on a Jensen-Healey is if your feet fit the pedals. They are oddly placed and shaped. If you wear over a size 10 shoe you may not be able to operate it.

Do you have any pics of that car? I use to own a Nash Metropolitan, it was a blast to drive. I could at 6'2" open both doors in the drivers seat.

I'll take some pics and post them Wed. if I have time. I'm afraid 314 miles is a little far. Maybe next time.

CLK, we should get together some time. I'm in Williamstown (used to be in Covington) and my kid is at school in Bowling Green. (And I have to run down there this weekend.)
