Darlinghurst: Hoon Cars: Austin-Healey

It's sunny days in Darlinghurst and car-lovers are bringing out their shiny vintage beasts. I spotted this gorgeous Austin-Healey this week on the cafe strip on Victoria Street. I am sure the owner was nearby, keeping an eye on his baby. 

 I love the way the front of the car kind of lurches forward as if it is rearing to go at any moment. Unfortunately, the owner didn't offer to take me for a spin. But I'll still keep dreaming of the day when I can ditch my cookie-cutter Japanese car for a deluxe vintage vehicle.
