Steve's 1978 MG Midget

Steve and his 1978 MG Midget in 2002

Here I am with my "new" car.  This picture was taken in March of 2002.  
After many years of never even SEEING one on the road, then a few months of searching,

I took the plunge and became the proud owner of a 1978 MG Midget. 
The previous owner lived in Boston and was a founder of the Boston Area MG Club.

Believe it or not, my Midget is not perfect!  I occasionally come across issues with it, and try to document it all here. 
Some of the issues remain unresolved, and as I can use all the help I can get,  please email me with your thoughts.


Shifting troubles?  Maybe this is the reason - and a quick and dirty "fix"
