Great Little Sports Car — MG Midgets are great little cars, that steer very well, and very much fit the go-kart cliche. However if you're used to half quick cars then its standard power output will bore you. Not to worry though, because there's heaps of aftermarket support, and with a bit of a hop up there is no car that is more fun!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Awesome little car, lots of aftermarket support

Cons: Very slow stock

Before The Ignition Stage I Was Praying To Have A Good Ride Without Any Break Down — this was a great classic in my opinion but she was like the London weather never thrust her weak engine and parts everything on the car was attached using cheeving gum it felt apart in 1 year but i loved the look so i continued driving her about a year

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: i loved the look

Cons: bad engine and mechanical design made this car a night mare to me

5. I bought this in 1979. A 1975 MG Midget, red, 4 cyl, 4-speed manual. I bought in the summer of 1979, but I had to sell it after a couple of months because the insurance was too high. Read More

Mg Midget Mk Iii By James

Easy to work on, tuneable, sporty, rather small. Much quicker off the line and round corners than an MGB. Read More
