Austin Healey 3000

Classic British sportscar, the iconic Big Healey with a long and distinguished racing pedigree. But is it cool?.

Not sub zero but cool all the same. They look cooler in rally and race trim IMHO as they are being used in a sportier way as originally intended and they were a bit of a hairy-chested beast in their day.

I blow hot and cold on them as pristine classics nowadays for some reason. Probably because they are always parked and polished at shows or being driven in genteel fashion whenever I see them.

A bit of a cad's car in its day I would have thought. If you use it as it was intended to be used, it's cool.

Proper British sportscar.

Cool, but not quite sub-zero.

This is why I voted uncool. I've never seen any other side of these cars.
