My father had long wanted a British sports car and in early 1968 he finally bought a new 1967 Austin Healey 3000. It was the last one sold at the dealership and I remember pulling out of the showroom the day he bought it. This is later that summer on our way home from our annual vacation to Fallen Leaf Lake near Tahoe. We had stopped at my grandfather's house in Sacramento for lunch and grandfather snapped this photo as we left for home in the Bay Area. That's me watching my side as dad backs the Healey out of the driveway.
