I almost got killed in an MG B one night. This was back when I was in high school about 35 years ago. My buddy owned the car and we rolled it on a curve, it was a ragtop and landed on top. He told me to watch the speedometer as he went into the curve which was posted at 20 MPH, we went into it going 45 or better. It didn't end pretty. We were in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of the night and lucky to be alive.... lol

Man my dad had an MG that I would drive around in. The thing was like a Go Cart! And the parts kit that we had to keep with it was very extensive. I'm glad I never got into a wreck with one or else I might not be alive.

Oh man those things were tiny, but thank God they had a lot of leg room. If not for that, I wouldn't be here, no doubt in my mind. They also put the batteries behind the seats, the acid dripped all over us while we were upside down in the car trying to figure out how to get out of it. It was a crazy night to say the least.

Wow, I'm surprised that the whole thing didn't flatten. I got my Dads midget on two wheels once and that scared the crap out of me. Did you ever ride in an MG after that incident?

Yeah I did, my buddy loved them. He bought one from his uncle and traded parts to fix up his wrecked one.

My older sister had one of those in the '70's. It was tiny, indeed.

Everyone can keep their itty bitty little MGs, your Vauxhalls, three wheeled oddities and so forth. The greatest British car ever built has to be the E-Type Jag.
