"It's more than 60 years since the first 100 and 300 Series Austing Healeys rolled off the production line, so potential buyers need to choose carefully â?? and The Essential Buyer's Gude is a great book to get before taking the plunge. Author Trummel points out everything you should look for, with handy hints, tips and illustrations." - Auto Express
"When asked by a non-owner, "What should I look for when buying a big Healey?" a current owner should reply, "You gotta get this book!" - Baird Foster - Freelance
