Healey and Triumph

This morning, as I was on the homeward leg of my customary run/walk, I spotted an Austin-Healey 3000 parked next to a Triumph TR-6 outside the same garage where I saw the MGA last week.

Schad (see his comment under the MGA post) says he likes the look of the TR6. I do, too, but prefer the voluptuous curviness of the Healey and the MG to the angularity of the TR. As to whether I prefer the Healey or the MG, I'm still coming down on the side of the latter, largely out of agreement with Mies van der Rohe's esthetic principle: "Less is more."
