I have wondered from time to time what the car designers/manufacturers think or feel when they see the creations they discarded 30, 40 or 50 plus years ago, fully restored and admired by so many?

I am not sure I can identify the Ferrari sound. I love the sounds of high-performance engines, but I guess I am just not enlightened enough to detect the Ferrari Sound. All these cars sound very different to me.

I've met three; Frank Nichols of Elva, Bob McKee of McKee and Donald Healey of Austin-Healey. Two have passed, Frank Nichols and Donald Healey. Both were very happy to see that their creations, and the enthusiasm for them, had lasted well past their production. Frank by far the most enthusiastic. He attended the Elva reunion at Road America, and a private party at the home of a collector who owned three Elvas, (I own one ), where I had a chance to talk with him at length. Bob McKee is still alive, and continues to support those who own McKee race cars and are still racing them in vintage events. He is very approachable, and loves to tell stories of racing in the 1950s and 1960s. Donald Healey was at the international Austin-Healey meet in Connecticut back around 1985, and was not surprised that mine had racing history from when it was fairly new.
