I'd like to add that I have one of the earliest "midgets" a 1962 Austin
Healey Mk II Sprite. No offense to Bugeye's, But I think Spridget line is
the best of the bunch.
I wouldn't go near a "B" . They are far to big for my taste.

Midgets are the best MGs made. Take all the overdrivin', four syncro
lovin', 5-main havin' MGBs and then find the lowest common denominator--
The Midget. The essence of the sportscar- the earlier the better because
even midgets "improved" as the years went on. Yes, the midgets are
smaller, but I wouldn't trade mine for any B in the world. If you really
want to be connected to the road with go-cart handling and feel like your
doing a hundred (sound like it too) when your doing 55 it should be the
midget. These autos are infinitely modifiable to anything you want to do--
engine, suspension, transmission-- there must be two million different ways
to make it better and that is half the fun. I started with a rust free
$300 midget 10 yrs ago and have never been the same since.
Whatever you decide to get, have fun. And don't let other peoples bias
:^) make you decision for you. Drive any you are interested in.
