My 1978 MG Midget.
Another car I got a deal on. $1500 for an MG with an awesome paint job! Just put new big end bearings, rings, four used flat topped pistons in the bottom end. Topped it off with a rebuilt head from Speedway Classics. Even after the valve head spent some time bouncing around the combustion chamber, he was actually able to save the head!





The Magic Midget - MG Racing History
MG was a British sports car manufacturer founded in the 1920s by Cecil Kimber. Best known for its two-seat open sports cars, MG also produced saloons and coup├ęs. LIke many manufacturers, MG went racing to generate publicity and to show off its performance abilities. From its earliest days MGs have been used in competition and from the early 1930s a series of dedicated racing cars such as the 1931 C-Type and 1934 Q-type were made and sold to enthusiasts who received considerable company assistance. This stopped in 1935 when MG was formally merged with Morris Motors and the Competition Department closed down. A series of experimental cars had also been made allowing Captain George Eyston to take several world speed records. In spite of the formal racing ban, speed record attempts continued with Goldie Gardner exceeding 200 mph (320 km/h) in the 1100 cc EX135 in 1939. After World War II record breaking attempts restarted with 500 cc and 750 cc records being taken in the late 1940s. A decision was also taken to return to racing and a team of MGAs was entered in the tragedy-laden 1955 24 Hours of Le Mans race, the best car achieving 12th place.
