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.
