Infact this is "The Short Arse Car" the reason for this is because everything in the Midget is well....tiny...so I recommend this car to people between 5'2 to 5'5 to buy this car if you're any taller you would look daft and be really uncomftable.
The boot space is incredibly tiny I would not be able to fit my shopping in it....so you would have to be a short arse who hates shopping.
The Midget has a 4 Cylinder front engine and is easy and cheap to run, right specifications fuel tank size 6.0 gallons engine is a 4 Cylinder 1275cc the power of the Midget is 64bhp and a 5800 rpm.
The top speed try not to laugh ...is only 96mph!!!!!
Ok so it is probably the slowest Classic Car in the world and now you don't want to buy one...the Midget does 0.60mph in 14.1 seconds and has a 4 manual gear box.
As much as I love the way this car looks like most classic car's its extremely hansom but its not very fast so no one these days would want one there is no boot space good handling but you have to be short to own one.
I'm trying to think what you could do with this car but its not very useful you cant go shopping in it you cant race it....I guess it belongs in a car museum...and the weird thing is the Midget is in My Classic Car Test Drives book as one of the most popular classic car's to own.
The 96mph does not bother me as I like I've said just want to cruise in a car not speed....My Classic Car Test Drive book says the Midget is impractical they are right ...this makes it a hard to own car-which is a shame as its a good looking car and easy to handle.
I guess if you like Classic cars and you are short then this car would do for you.
Now to be so kind I shall try to recommend a Classic that tall people can buy and one I bought the other day in The Model Shop...the Lotus Elan a 1962-1973 two Seater convertible.
It has much more space in the cabin then the MG Midget so I can up the sizes to 5'2 to 6'0 ok yes I have only gone up to 6 foot there is a very good reason for that the car is quite low and a very very tall person would look like Noddy in the Elan the front window screen in quite low so I can only go up to 6 foot sorry.
The Lotus Elan is another classic that is cheap to run the Elan only has a 9 gallon fuel tank and has a 1558cc, 4 cylinder dohc engine with a power of 106bhp at 5500rpm and its top speed is 114mph,the Elan can do 0.60 in 8.7 seconds so its faster then the Midget.
The Elan has a four manual gear box.
Now is the Elan a better car to own then the Short Arse Midget.....yes!
There is lots of reason for this it has more space in the boot everything works fine on it, its cheap to run looks good, you can also be tall to own one excellent handling and lovely dashboard yes it has a wooden dash!!!
The Elan also has leather seats as most classic's so out of the Midget and the Elan I strongly recommend the Elan you won't go wrong with it
