Welcome Susan,

I purchased this nice Midget just up the road from you on Hwy 25, just south of Jackson about 3.5 years ago. They are more fun than you could imagine. Plug yourself into a local MG club if possible. They can assist with repair options and plenty of activities. I also totally recommend you check out the Missouri Endurance Rally in St Louis, next month. Want some good reading about the fun that can be had with these cars, check out this link:

The date for the Missouri Endurance Rally is April 21, 2018

Hey Johnny, is that second '64 you have a donor car? I don't see a name for her.

Hi Chuck,

No I only have one, not many Mk1's about in the UK these days. A while back I tried to add some information and inadvertently created an identical twin.
I guess I should have ago at deleting the cloned twin.

All the best Johnny

Might have ago now smileys with beer

I take that back Chuck as if I delete one I am afraid I will lose some of my 2015 photos and information, so both can stay for the while

Funny, I'd have thought there would be a lot of them in the homeland. As far as I know I have the only MK1 in the U.P. Mike Holms has an MK2 Sprite an hours drive south of me. We plan to get together for lunch and a drive this summer. Still quite snowy up here yet!

Chuck,

I believe, we only have 75 Mk1's registered as drivable or stored off road. No doubt the odd one rotting under a bramble bush here and there.

When I bought mine in 1981, the 1275cc were the most popular with a lot of Spridget enthusiasts and the old school went for the Frogeye. Guess the Mk1's being Mk2 sprites just got a little forgotten about. The modernists wanted those new fangled door handles on the outside and those heavy old wind up window things (did they ever catch on)smiling smiley

Fortunately for us Brits, you guys in America seemed to make a better job of saving our heritage, than we have.

Have to also say I rather like the rubber bumbered 1500cc's, they were a car of their time. I can see them being sort after with their original black rubber bumpers in the future.


All the best Johnny
