Ha, Phillip--that might be what was tripping me up.
My dad was a sports car enthusiast and we had a few MGs when I was growing up. In fact, Dad's retirement project was to build (restore?) a 'Spridget'.
No--the Spridget Dad built was a combo car, with parts from a Sprite and a Midget. There were other Spridgets around here, back in his days of local races. A couple of the guys in his club had them, that's how he was inspired to build one himself some 30 odd years later.
