Doh! That's correct, the E23 was a 7er.

Let's see...it's definitely an Austin Healey, and an earlier one, but the photo erases most of the features needed for a rapid ID....I'm going to say AH 3000 Mark I

I sort of recognize it. One of the Big Healeys from the late 1950s! Maybe a 100. Drove one of the Healeys once and had awful problems with the gearbox which had no synchromesh. I do recall the spare wheel on deck.

Real men don't need syncros to drive a stick....

Yup, it's a 1958 Austin-Healey 100-6., supposedly with only 45000 miles.

What's that? I don't speak Aussie.

Looks like a 1602 to me ... but that strikes me as too easy for this thread.

Yup, it's a 1967 BMW 1600 (aka 1602). I figured somebody might mistake it for a 2002.
My kid brother went across the country in his buddy's brand new 1600 back then (jealous).
