Who You Are: My Sprite has been in the family since 67'. I got it from my brother in law about 10 years ago, after it had been stored for about 16 yrs. I fixed it up enough to drive for awhile, but time caught up with it. It has been patiently awaiting in line behind my other projects for about 5 yrs. So, now it's time. I have about 22yrs of automotive experience, 10 professionally. I am currently a designer at a local "jet motor" factory.

Who You Are: I am a professional cartographer making digital map databases for the web and for GPS based vehicle navigation systems. I have had Gerty since purchasing her from a colleague in California in 1993. She has been restored to reliable driving condition. She's red, with a black soft-top. I have recently found a hardtop for her and will be taking delivery on that this summer. She has the original engine (1098) and (ribcase) transmission. As far as I know, the head has never been off the engine. She runs GREAT!

Who You Are: I have owned 3 MGB's (67,68,72) but this is my first Spridget. I currently own another 68 MGB but am looking forward to driving the Sprite. I've been an LBC fan since I drove my sister's brand new 72 MGB when I was 16! I'm also a Harley-Davidson nut (1950 FL, 1977 FXE). Is that a combination or what? Oh yea, I am an assistant parts manager at a Ford dealership but don't own a mustang if thats not enough irony for you.

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!)
