Larry, Sandi & List,
The Midget you referred to, photos 1 & 2, has a Toyota 2TG engine. You're
write, it's a twin cam and twin carb, Mikuni side draft carbs. It's a
factory engine, not sold in the US, that puts out about 120 HP.
I have a very similar setup... a '62 Sprite with a Toyota 18RG @ 130 HP.
Having lots of fun...

Big show car wise. Not many vendors or parts. Everything from Roll's
Rovers. About 700 cars altogether. Not as many Spridgets as I had
those that are interested I have posted a picture of every Spridget
attendance on my web page under "Palo Alto 98".
Pictures #1 and #2 are a beautiful Midget with what looks to be an
cam or maybe a twin cam engine. Never found the owner to find out
what it was.
Pictures #10, 11, and 12 are of the best looking Bugeye in
The only list member I saw was Rick Walters with Puddles (center car
Picture #5). Fred Klampits was a no show (at least I could not find
car). I hope it was not because of car trouble.
Picture #14 is an Italian Sprite. I'm afraid I stuck my foot in my
this one. Jokingly I said "What a waste of Bugeye's" and found out
that I was speaking to the owner. If you are on the Spridget list
me say I was joking.
