Here we have a piece of classic british history. A 1979 MG Midget, original engine and drives fantastically.

It’s a car you can either spend thousands on getting into pristine condition or keep it running for a few hundred a year. I have done the major work and now its the little bits that need doing. I have fully comp insurance limited to 6000 miles and valued at £2500. £92 per year!

What’s good about it, well we have done a hell of a lot of work to the car I have all the receipts and will try to list most of them below. The engine is fantastic, very strong and sounds amazing. The underside of the car is almost 100% rust free. Take this car around a corner and it sticks to the road like glue.
