Well tinydog, if you like tiny dogs, then I see your point. If you
look at the profile of a RB Midget, it has a nice flow to it. I never
said it was the best. THe RB MGB's on the other hand are a bad attempt
to graft something onto a pretty decent style. But it also has the
wheels stuck a foot inside.
I like the older Spridgets, but I think they have the front end cut
off, kinda like a modern SUV. I am only speaking about profile, from
about any other angle (and on a RB Midget, the rear is the worst), a
Spridget has a "design follows function" ideal to it.
