On my 12th birthday my dad cleaned and shone the mustard yellow Austin Healey which had been lying under a tarp in our garage for most of my childhood.
Taking the kids from school on short rides in that car is one of my great childhood memories!
In the 1970s and 80s, my grandfather, Bruce Caw was the Chairman of the Austin Healey Club of Southern Africa – and went on to establish the South African Motor Club Association. It was exploring his legacy that lead to me buying my first Austin Healey Sprite at age 29.
I purchased five Sprites up to 2017 and painstakingly restored them one at a time. Each vehicle was sold on to a new family to take the Austin Healey marque, and Bruce Caw’s legacy, forward.
