MG MIDGET £2,802
Evergreen open two-seater started as Austin-Healey Sprite twenty years ago, with 948 cc engine, but has grown-up, and in current form bears the MG badge. It has a 1.5-litre engine (which is also used in the Triumph Spitfire). With its relatively large engine the modern Midget is a lively, sporting two-seater, and all creature comforts are built-in too, with wind-up windows and an easily-erected hood. High gearing results in fussless running and light fuel appetite. There is a luggage boot at the rear but the spare wheel is also housed there, so baggage has to be of the weekend type, but a grid is easily fitted. Hazard lights are standard.
