I'm a professional truck mechanic and have owned my business for 36 years. I'm just now getting back with the MG's I loved so much when I was younger. I am recently semi-retired so I now have time for the MGB restoration and to have fun with the Midget. I have a shop in Cameron at my home so you are all welcome to visit anytime. If at any time you need help with your cars please let me know or stop by the shop.

When I replaced the ...

MG Midget

Posted on: Wednesday October 26, 2011

I'm excited to have a Midget again! When I was younger I had owned a red 1968 and a British racing green 1971. I always wanted a round wheel arch car with wire wheels. I finally found one in Danbury, NC. The body is in fairly good shape but she needs a good bit of drive line repairs. On the test drive I realized that the steering was dangerous and the handling wasn't much better. When I got her back to the shop I inspected the steering rack and found that the right side tie rod was ready to brea...
