Back to Basics – 1973 MG Midget

June 4, 2015

Just like there’s a lot to be said for the purity of the pair of pickups featured here recently, or a simple people’s car like a Mini or Fiat 500, the simplicity of a bottom-end sports car is also really appealing. Simple electrical system, simple engine, and not many amenities to go wrong mean you should be spending most of your time driving, and when you do need to fix things, you can do it with a very simple set of hand tools. At least that’s the theory. Check out this 1973 MG Midget for sale for $2000 in Hood River, OR.

B is for Black – 1973 MGB Roadster

As much as the more complex, more unusual cars are cool, there’s something about a basic sports car that is hard to resist. And the MGB got the basics right – exhaust note, tidy styling, some trunk room for a weekend away, simple drivetrain, and some chrome-ringed gauges. Sometimes, though, it seems like even the basics are slipping out of reach, so we’re here to keep it real – check out this 1973 MGB for sale for $2000 near Hayward, CA.

Revolution! – 1974 MGB GT

September 2, 2014

Have you ever found a car that appeals to you, even though it shouldn’t, based on your own personal guidelines and tastes? Somehow, the builder/owner has found the right combination of wheels, color, stance and more to enable the car to break the rules – whether it’s design, attention to detail, or craftsmanship. That’s how you can appreciate a low rider, even if your natural predilections are towards small French cars of the 1970s. Check out this 1974 MGB GT for sale for $3800 in Plainville, MA.
