1966 Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII

 I was driving downeast on Route 3. Spotted this machine parked outside the grocery store in China, Maine, and had to turn around and come in for a closer look. Met the owner, an ex-air Force guy. Turns out this Healey is a one-owner car, and everything's original. It was repainted a few years back but the engine, interior--even the tonneau cover--are all as they came, straight from the factory (or should that be "the works"?) in '66.  Last original Healey was this 1961 Austin-Healey on San Francisco Bay.
