After Garret had scalloped the Healey Buzzy entered the Army and was sent to Germany. He let Garret enter the car in the 1958 Rodarama Auto Show in Stockton. "It was a thrill for me to drive that thing for a few days as I was only 19 years old at the time," Garret told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama in 2020. Photo courtesy of Garret Walther.
