Sports cars, road racing, touring, and the Tail of the Dragon.
I'm diggin' it.
Guessed you might--but it was a guess.
Here's the story: http://bangshift.com/general-news/car-features/double-car-feature-the-english-brothers-are-bangshift-heroes-and-the-nightmare-of-british-car-collectors/I found it using the search terms "turbocharged xke drag racer." The car showed up in the images, and I followed the image link to the bangshift.com page. Which reminds me, when I was sixteen, in 1966, riding in an Austin Healey 3000 that I was helping a neighbor shuttle around town for minor repairs before resale by his dad, who owned a used sports ca lot. A guy pulled up to us in another Healey, one powered by a Corvette V-8. He honked, we shouted back and forth for a minute, and then he pushed down on the loud pedal, and rocketed away. :) Good memory. Good blog. Thanks.
