Sometime back in 1981 or so, I got lazy. I stopped keep­ing my photos in albums and started the shoebox photo­keeping method. Recently I awarded myself a two-week rest sabbatical. I decided that this was a good time to organize the photos into their proper chronological, but empty albums.


Floods of smiling faces poured forth. I became aware as I organized endless boxes of photos that the Austin-Healey Club has played an enormously important role in our lives.


From the numerous Bay Area treks to the pinnacle of all events, Snowmass, we have had the great pleasure of the company of dear, special, unique friends. Friends who reside nearby, state-wide, nation-wide, and as far away as Australia.


It's true we have each lent the other a helping hand. We have traded auto parts, tuning techniques, restoration sim­plifications and other endless Healey peculiarities. How­ever, our association with this club delved into the most basic mechanism of all - the heart - our hearts.


Austin-Healey Club members have opened their hearts to us. They are the warmest, most caring friends that one could hope for. You stretch your friendship beyond club events. Delightfully, these days we find you in every area of our lives: business, skiing, dining, theater, etc.


Bill and I recognize the essential impact that you, the members, have had on our lives. We are grateful to the Austin-Healey Club for being the catalyst of long-lasting, robust friendships.
