OT - new car

I know it's not an MB, but it is an MG! 1972 midget.

just picked this up. I used to have a 67 MGBGT, so these cars are already familiar to me. Wife seems to like it, I'm suppose to fix it up and sell, but we will see what she thinks later....

Great find, love the MGs. We just had a huge British Car Event here and you would have simply been in heaven among the show fields. I believe it was you who were just recently in Portland area for the Concours? Maybe time to consider an annual pass?

Nice ride. I too have a soft spot for the "Spridgets"... Just continue to beware of Lucas, Lord of Darkness. Enjoy!

Thanks for the picture links, I was hoping to see my 1954 Red Austin-Healey 100-4 and my 1956 Black Austin-Healey 100-4, but no luck.

Very cool! I've got a triumph MK3 Spitfire halfway through a new wiring harness and all new interior. Very fun little cars.

Instagram @derstrichacht for interesting W114/5 pics.

Cute! Looks like it'll fit in the trunk of my 108

I've got a Fiat 850, perhaps about the same size as yours, also a restoration in progress
