Q. What does it mean when a Jensen Healey stops leaking oil?

A. It's out of oil.

Seriously, I don't think there is such a thing as a leak free British car of the era. I belong to the local British car club, and we have a very nice clubhouse/showroom where several members (including myself) park their cars over the winter. It's so funny to see... 30 to 40 British cars, not just LBCs but also Rolls Royces, Morgans, Jaguar saloons, etc. most in gorgeous condition, all shiny and perfect and exotic looking, probably well over a million dollars worth of cars. And EVERY one of them has an oil-soaked sheet of cardboard on the floor underneath the engine. EVERY one.
