I've seen Midgets of the same age in much worse shape; I know where one is
right now that might have some useful parts. It looks to be salvageable, it
you really wanted to save it. Like Max said, there might not be a lot of
demand for a '76 Midget. Different story for a '73 in my opinion. Rather a
shame to let it rust into oblivion, if it is indeed salvageable for a
minimal to modest investment. What would it bring if it was fixed to a safe
and sound condition? Is it worth the time and money to get it there?

I was driving my B last week, and a woman in a BMW pulled up beside me and
asked if I wanted a Midget. Well, I didn't exactly "want" one but I said
yeah, sure, I'd take a look at it.
The short version is that it was her first car, she stopped driving it daily
when she had kids, she got divorced and no longer had a garage to store it,
and now wants to stop paying the monthly storage lot fees. But she would
hate to see it scrapped, of course, so it was "free to a good home".
I don't need a longterm project, and I'm too tall to use a Midget for a
driver, so I was thinking to just clean it up and flip it. Not for much, of
course -- no huge pent-up demand for scruffy RB Midgets that I have noticed.
Just as a service to keepin' 'em on the road.
I have posted some photos with comments on Flickr:
Anyway, comments or suggestions are welcome. I particularly would appreciate
it if any experienced Spridgeteers had some advice about the left front
I would also be willing to listen to offers, though I'm not really expecting
any given its current condition. I do have one local contact that would have
