Orphan Car Show '08: 1966 Austin Healey 3000 Mk III

Click above for a high-res gallery of this pristine Austin-Healey

The annual Orphan Car Show took place in Ypsilanti, MI yesterday and Mother Nature provided absolutely perfect weather for the event. One of my personal favorites of the show was this sparkling pearl white 1966 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk III. As with many of the cars on display, this was in far better condition than any Austin-Healey that ever came out of the British factory. The finish on this car clearly had a lot of effort put into it and absolutely shimmered in the sunlight. According to the owner, he did the mechanical restoration while a professional shop handled the body work. The 3000s were built from 1959-67 in three series with this Mk III being one of the later cars. This is classic British motoring at its best.
