From the President

Hello all you Healeyphiles! As you may recall, I have been away a while receiving treatment for my prostate cancer. I am happy to tell you that by the time I read this, I will have completed my treatments at California Proton Center in San Diego. Cindi and I have been enjoying a bit of a “medical vacation” in a rented condo in Del Mar. The weather has been glorious, and I have the best tan in years! My days have been pretty much “get up – go to the gym – shower – treatments (30 minutes) – check emails – lunch at the pool – a few more emails – a nap – dinner! Not exactly a tough regiment. I will drop this topic after this month, but I just want to reiterate; guys....get your PSA test every year and encourage all your male family members over 40 to do the same. It could save your life.

 

I am looking forward to getting back in my shop and restarting the restoration on the Swallow Doretti. The incoming parts are starting to back up and I have a lot of projects to tackle, including Sinishing the rear axle and brakes, mounting the front hubs and getting the car rolling on its own four wheels.

 

I am pleased to tell you that your wandering Healey friends are at it again. Our 2020 tour to England, France and Italy is fully booked with 12 cars and couples, most from the AHASC. We even have a waiting list, and I will be happy to add your name to it. Just drop me an email to get on the info list.

 

Looking forward to getting back in the saddle and seeing you all soon at Club events. Thanks to Greg Aden, Jay Miller, Tim McNiff and all the other Club volunteers who have kept things running like clockwork during my absence.
