Cross-Cultural Jag

They say every car has a story.  Wonder what this one's is?

Guessed you might--but it was a guess.

Here's the story:

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 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.
