Austin Healey 100-4

I rarely dream of cars anymore but I suspect the 100-4 will forever be “the one that got away.” I had a shot to buy one in high school and it was just a little beyond my reach. They are now WAY beyond my reach.

The following are a couple of examples. There are several more, check out the article.

Aprilia 


Harley Davidson

Washington Pre-War T100

This is a little blurry blurry but it's too cool not to post. I'm not sure who or where it is but it was in a collection of Washington motorcycle photos. It looks to be a pre-war Triumph T100 Tiger.

Triumph T200

The original Triumph T100 was supposed to designate it would do 100 MPH. The Bonneville became the T120. 

Alp Sungurtekin’s 1950’s 650cc powered Triumph Pre-Unit was built to go 200 MPH. Hence, the T200.
