Matters of Moment

A new sports car—The Jensen-Healey We began the year with the suggestion that a sports-car renaissance might well be a feature of the nineteen-seventies, based on the assumptions that the motor car continues to be a status-symbol or, put less blatantly, a pleasurable possession, and that, in open two-seater form, it adds the benefit and enjoyment of fresh-air motoring, good handling and a sense...
