MIKE LE CAPLAIN, PRO­DUC­TION ED­I­TOR

Do I take the Midget 1500 out for a blast on a sunny Sun­day morn­ing, or the MGF? It’s a dilemma I’ve faced many times, over the years, be­cause I own ex­am­ples of both. If I fancy giv­ing it the full moo on a cork­ing road, then the ‘F is the one to take – it goes like the clap­pers, sounds fan­tas­tic and grips like you wouldn’t be­lieve, yet it’s also re­fined on long jour­neys. The Midget is just as much fun to drive in its own way, though, and its tiny di­men­sions and low driv­ing po­si­tion turn ev­ery jour­ney into an ad­ven­ture. The fact that it’s more de­mand­ing to drive than the ‘F ramps up the fun-fac­tor for me, too. I love my MGF to bits, but for plain old fash­ioned driv­ing plea­sure, The Midget’s the one for me.
