Healey Joyride 2012

Posted on November 11th, 2012 by Dave under Austin Healey, auto restoration.

We had an enthusiastic group of, well.. enthusiasts participate in a rallye though the mostly North valley of the metro area.¬† Going as far as the Santa Anna Pueblo in that direction and just South of Central Ave in the other. This is part of my yearly drive to raise some money to purchase gloves, tires/tubes, and similar stuff for our wheelchair bound Vets. The cars ranged from a 40’s Chrysler Airflow to a new Porsche Boxster. We collected $275 and would have done better had the local weather forecasters not deemed the weekends weather to be “wild”. As it was there was 2-3 minutes of light rain at the start line, some wind gusts and on and off periods of cloudiness. There was a lighthearted attempt to impeach me as the rallye master as I missed the correct name of one street, nevertheless all found the finishing point where we enjoyed burgers and mostly coffee.

At one point a rallyist asked a Santa Anna Pueblo resident for directions at which point the gentleman offered an unsolicited¬† donation from his pocket after being told what the rallye was for. How cool is that. Good Morning America, I’m a native son. Thanks all! Dave.
