"Hi Jesmond, I don't know if I told you when we were corresponding that I am member of the South Canterbury Vintage Car Club. Last Saturday the club held one of its more important rallies of the year called the Mid Island Rally. I went in the Austin A55 and was one of about 68 vehicles that went on the run. It had a good showing of vehicles some old model Ts right through the years, the latest one being a 1964 mini. You name the brand of vehicle and it was there. Mine was the only Austin. We had good weather and I understand it was about 180 miles start to finish. It extended from Timaru through to Geraldine and then into a private forest. That was a bit challenging climbing up to the hilltops on roads only made for logging trucks. I was pleased to get back onto tarseal once we were on our way home. As usual I didn't get anywhere in the rally, thats not my luck. Prior to starting off from the Clubrooms they had a Concours display . About a dozen or perhaps eighteen vehicles went in it. I decided to put the A55 in the display. I don't know when the judging took place and we heard nothing until after the placegetters in the actual rally were announced. There was a table of Cups and Certificates being handed out . All went until only one big cup remained. I thought it won't be me because Ive never won one yet and next thing my name came up. I won the 2014 Concours Cup in my class which was (Post War Vintage) Every comment about the A55 on that day was good and she's going well. So there you have it Jesmond,I don't know if any other vehicles you've had have won Concours but now you know at least one has."

      Power, quick, proud...such are the adjectives used to describe the Sebring Saxon. Meticulously patterned after the Austin Healey BN4 3000, the Saxon captures the excitement of this classic forerunner of such sports cars as the Shelby Cobra, the Corvette, and the Jaguar XKE.

      The 3000 was one of the most popular Austin Healey of all time because it was one of the first 100mph sports cars available in America. Even today, its striking style is revered by sports car lovers all over the world. Behind the wheel of this handsome brute, you'll experience a car that is responsible without pretense. It is fast, nimble and smooth, with that throaty sound synonymous with high performance. With a 5.0 ltr V8 under the hood, you'll understand why this car can be best described as classic excitement.
