A quickie as I dash out the door for a meeting:
Nanjing Automobile (Group) Corporation and Healey Automobile Consultants Limited, in conjunction with HFI Automotive Ltd, are delighted to announce their intention to collaborate with each other on the future development of the Healey and Austin Healey brands and sports cars bearing their name.
On the surface, this is good news and shows NAC knows that, in order to grow, it needs strong brands.
The down side is the potential, given the companys relatively limited resources at present, of the MG TF appearing as the Sprite Mk V.
More likely it’s a Austin-Healey 3000 successor that HFI has planned, but was stuck given that the Austin name is owned by NAC these days. Let’s hope so. Posted by Jack Yan, 03:20

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
