I'm hoping to get my first classic this year and have my heart set on an MG, moreso after ogling all the little beauts at the show in Terenure last weekend. From what reading I've done so far, it seems to be a simple classic and cheap enough, with good access to parts and good for someone like me, who appreciates classics but knows nothing about maintaining them and wants to learn. I'm hoping to buy in September or so. Any MG midget or MGB owners out there who want to share their advice or pros and cons of MG ownership? Are they a good intro to the world of classics for someone like me? Can they handle regular outings? I'd hope to use it most weekends and will keep it in a garage over the more miserable months...

One piece of advice.
Try them both for size.
The Midget lives up to it's name. To say the least it's cozy.
If you are tall you will find that the B will be more comfortable.
Ode To The Motorist
“And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, generates funds to the exchequer. You don't want to acknowledge that as truth because, deep down in places you don't talk about at the Green Party, you want me on that road, you need me on that road. We use words like freedom, enjoyment, sport and community. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent instilling those values in our families and loved ones. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the tax revenue and the very freedom to spend it that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise I suggest you pick up a bus pass and get the ********* ********* off the road”
