My first English roadster was a 1962 Austin Healy 3000 MK2. Fun car except on really hot days; it was an oven. We had to sell it as my oldest was starting school and we needed two dependable vehicles. Actually, come to think of it, my first English roadster was a Sunbeam Alpine I owned in college and when we were first married. (I don't know if I would count that one) Many years later I owned a Triumph TR250. It was a little expensive and not all that trustworthy because of transmission and clutch issues. Again, very fun to drive, but I always 'kissed the ground' if we made it home with no issues. I now own a Saturn Sky Redline. It is much more dependable and sophisticated. It is also very fun to drive and handles like a dream comparatively. But, I have to admit that climbing in the Sky for a drive does not generate the anticipation and excitement that climbing in the English roadsters did.
