Every one complains about Lucas electrical used in MG's, there isn't a problem with it, just don't let the smoke out!!!

The midget and MG-B were both great cars.

Another great car of the same era (60s to 70s) was the Triumph Spitfire. My dad used to have one in the mid-late 70s, and I remember having great fun with it.

I'd love to get a spitfire, as a fun runaround, but getting parts for servicing must be a nightmare (even in the UK, yet alone here in US)

His was a Mk IV in "British Racing Green" like this one (except it had the spoked wheels) : -

Liked the TR4, 5, etc. Never had one but thought they looked great.

Actually I found a local shop that only works on MG 's and Triumphs and he can get any part you would need and prices are quite reasonable.
I love tooling around in this car. I can't count the times that someone has pulled up to me at a red light or driving down the road and give me the thumbs up. In all my other vehicles they use a different finger!
