Not done much with the Midge today, save for a bit of prep on a board to take with the old girl, to the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham at the end of the month.
However, a few minutes ago I came across a video I made ages ago, which reminded me why I love driving her and mustn't get to prissy about when to take her out.



Aren't these cars just so much fun, you can't help but smile when you think of that great last drive out.

All the best Johnnysmileys with beer

Caught an oil leak, before it became hazardous. Freaking relieved! It was a God save to catch it now.

Only doing it because all the other idiot's on the road seemed to be doing the same, even the police cars, Gary LOL. And some mechanic put my steering wheel and pedals the wrong way about as well!!!!!!

I spent time at the Scottish Highland Games in Scottsdale, AZ. They hosted a car show Saturday and Sunday; I went Saturday. Lots of fun for a small show (more Minis than everything else!). I watched girls throw things, drank some good beer and bought a hat.
No, I didn't buy a kilt; my wife would have kilt me! (I could have rented one, though.)

I did get second place in the small 'One Of A 19xx' class made up of cars that didn't have enough attendance to form a class. smiling smiley Once again, I was the only Midget. I am beginning to think there are only 2-3 on the road in the Valley (but more in AZ somewheres).

I never once saw a Midget in all the time I lived in Arizona. Good on you for showing off one of 'ours'. BUT, once I get mine painted and beautified, I may make it up there, again. Arizona has one of the biggest classic car populations, in the U.S., as far as I remember.

Chuck,

I have a hat pin from Indianhead; I used to ski, a lot. Nordic Mountain, Mount Morris, WI.

I am only slightly ashamed to say I wasn't thinking of the frozen north. I was busy hiding from the (light) rain. My tonneau cover got some use beyond keeping leaves out of the cockpit.

In reply to # 3903494 by Chas 906 Nicely done Steve! Great pics. Thanks for thinking about the rest of us buried in the white stuff!

Sean, there are indeed lots of classics here, and quite a few LBCs; there just aren't many Midgets. I've seen exactly one other in 19 years. It's neat to have something unusual, especially when I myself am unusual as it is.

Yep well done Steve,

Wrong colour for a kilt though, you'd need a a tartan red one like mine smiling smiley A highland wife also helps as that means only one choice of tartan (Mackenzie), well two ancient (weathered) or modern.

Love the little white mini moke, you pictured.

All the best Johnny

Thanks for reminding me why I have spent three years working to get mine back on the road! I told my wife maybe instead of having it for our 30th anniversary, I will be done in August for our 33rd...she said or maybe our 35th. Everyday is one day closer!!! Great video!
Thank you,
Tracy

Drove the little beast to work. The weatherman said no chance of rain - he lied, and I don't have a top yet.

Oh, well. still a fun ride.

Ken,

Best place for the hood is in the loft smiling smiley

Good on you, only downside I find with rain is when it's coming down the inside of the windscreen and you don't have enough visability to drive safely.

All the best Johnny

Bridgette (brown midget) and I went to the movies and lunch today. A bit windy, but fun. She likes to get out and stretch her legs. And Captain Marvel was pretty good too.
