A from long beach stopped by on the way to azusa canyon. hope he had a great ride :)



our friend's shop two blocks away is having 10year anniversary open house this afternoon so shinya decided to take the kiriya. it has been sitting here for a's a bit hard to ride around for shinya since the owner has long legs and shinya doesn't.


schraders was our next door neighbor when we moved in here and have been friends with the owner MA since then. he moved 2 blocks away maybe two years ago. oh, i forgot to take pictures of him...what was i thinking? anyway, he's one of our few special friends who knows the whole length of the chabott life. happy anniversary, M!

"The Austin-Healey 100 is a sports car built from 1953 until 1956.

It was developed by Donald Healey to be produced in-house by Healey's small car company in Warwick and based on Austin A90 Atlantic mechanicals. Healey built a single Healey Hundred for the 1952 London Motor Show, and the design impressed Leonard Lord, Managing Director of Austin so much, he was looking for a replacement to the unsuccessful A90, that a deal was struck with Healey to build it in quantity at Austin's Longbridge factory. The car was renamed the Austin-Healey 100.

The "100" name comes from Donald Healey, who selected the name from the car's ability to reach 100 mph (160 km/h), as opposed to the Austin-Healey 3000, which is named for its 3000 cc engine.

Production Austin-Healey 100s were finished at Austin's Longbridge plant alongside the A90 and based on fully trimmed and painted body/chassis units produced by Jensen in West Bromwich—in an arrangement the two companies previously had explored with the Austin A40 Sports.

The 100 was the first of three models later called the Big Healeys to distinguish them from the much smaller Austin-Healey Sprite. The Big Healeys are often referred to by their three-character model designators rather than by their models, as the model names do not reflect the mechanical differences and similarities well."
