8.23- Healeys on Hodges

About a dozen Austin-Healeys and other British sports/roadsters parked on Hodges Street between Town Dock and The Bean coffee shop today as the Austin-Healey Club of America held its annual "ice cream social."

Owners (and some passengers) met for Ice Cream at Oriental's premiere coffee and ice cream shop, "The Bean," this year.

Most of the Austin-Healeys were "3000 MK" models (including both cars appearing in today's photo), though there was at least one "bugeye" Sprite as well. Also in the mix were several MGs, a Lotus Mark 7 and a Jaguar XKE.

I really liked the yellow/black Austin-Healy juxtaposed with the equally yellow "Nantascot" tied up at Town Dock in the background.
