Comment: I bought it from my ex-girlfriend's dad. He probably would have given it to me (her folks really liked me), but I bought it for next to nothing. Currently, it's a fairly solid daily driver, but I hope to eventually do a restoration. The car is my first experience with auto repair, and it's been a learning experience to say the least... but fun.

Who You Are: I bought my first LBC, the first '74 Midget listed here, on October 17, 1983. Hard to imagine it was only nine years old at the time. Unfortunately, it was totaled while parked in front of my house about three years later. I went through many other British cars, and I'll probably have still more (good lord, I hope so!) in years to come, but I'm back to the round-arch Midget. They just... do something to me. Don't think I'll have to explain why to this crew. I also run the annual Day Before The Britcars Day (on the Saturday before Rick Feibusch's Palo Alto All-British Car Meet). Write me for info.

Who You Are: I'm a 46 year old business manager for a wholesale distributor. In 1972 I was living in Vernon, British Columbia and a friend decided to start racing a '65 Sprite. A short time later another '65 came up for sale and I bought it. It was in pretty rough shape even though it was not very old and it soon inherited most of the first race engine. I went on to spend lots of money on BL performance parts and thoroughly enjoyed many slaloms and even the occasional ice race! Then came marriage etc and in '76 the Sprite turned into the down payment for our first house. Fast forward to 1991and a chance Sunday drive to Bragg Creek, a small town in the foothills west of Calgary. Parked beside the road with a For Sale sign was a bright yellow Midget. Had to stop and check it out. 35,000 miles???? Can't be. Well maybe. The interior was like new and the body showed no signs of rust (even in the driver's footwell) and the fridge magnet test revealed only a small patch of body filler in the hood. The paint job (it was orange originally) left a lot to be desired but it easily passes the 30 ft test. The owner had purchased a brand new top when the local dealer BL was closing so that was a bonus. My first priority was to have fun as soon as possible so the front A arms had to be replaced. With that done and a little regular maintenance, she ran well till the summer of '97 when the clutch expired. I could not bring myself to pull the engine and not breath a little fire into it like the "good old days" so it came apart in February of '98. New pistons, cam, valves, dizzy, a little head work, balanced, new headers and other misc. stuff and fired it up on September 20th. What a treat. Way more torque than what I remember from my previous 1098. I now NEED 5.5" rims and new tires and then I will try a few slaloms again. I plan to attend Britfest which will be held this year in Fairmont B.C. in June and hope to make it to Rally in The Valley in Vernon in July. Many thanks to all the Spridget listers who provide such a wealth of information and creative solutions.

Who You Are: I am a meteorologist retiring after 41 years in the weather business. My hobbies (in addition to the MG) include BMW motorcycles, Bluegrass, Blues and Jug Band music, home brewing, West Highland White Terriers, and live theater. My first MG was a 1946 TC that I owned for a few years when I was in the USAF and stationed in High Wycombe, England. I bought my present MG from Australian, Rick Hopton, in Dallas, TX, in August of 2004. Once retired we will move to northwest Georgia to join our children and grand children. I am a member of the Peachtree MG club, Spridgets@autox.team.net and Yahoo Midgetsprite groups in addition to some BMW motorcycle lists and lists for my other hobbies.

Its in fairly good shape now and it might be a keeper with all the pollution testing I need something without all that stuff.

Who You Are: Gas Turbine Specialist, on the road most of the time, installing, modifying and teaching the owners how to operate and care for their machines. Wanted a Midget since High School. Three years ago I decided to buy the 76. After tearing her apart and rebuild most of her, she is my daily driver. But the fever hit, 76 was on the road two months, needed another toy so I found the 71. Been working on her for a year. And then I found the RWA 72 sitting in storage and just had to have her. What an addiction.
