Who You Are: This is my second Spridget. For 4 years or so, a 1974 Midget was my sole transportation when I was living in Guildford (Surrey, England) and working in London. It was an unwise purchase, as it gradually disintegrated on me over the years. It was, however, still great fun! Hence the reason I sought out a rust free example when I moved to the States. My current car was purchased from an ex-colleague who removed the engine 15 years ago to replace the clutch, and decided to perform some minor restoration "wheil he was at it"! I bought it from him, as (literally) a box of bits, for $600 3 years ago and have been fiddling with it ever since. It's finally legal and driveable (but still not very pretty). My current daily driver is a 1987 Jaguar XJ6 (which also demands some of my time and engineering skills!)
