‘I took a 2000 mile trip to run it in!’

1977 MG Midget Iain Gal­low, by email

Practical Classics (UK) - - YOUR CARS -

I've owned my Midget 1500 for 25 years, but this year em­barked on a 2000-mile trip to North­ern Italy via the Swiss Alps. Work com­mit­ments meant I ended up leav­ing only hours after get­ting the car run­ning prop­erly after an en­gine re­build, so it was run in on the way! It has never done more than a 150-mile trip be­fore but it took it in its stride – it's a great lit­tle car! It shares my at­ten­tion with a few Range Rover Clas­sics, a VW Camper and a Fro­g­eye. I sup­pose the con­clu­sion is, just be brave with your clas­sic. Drive and en­joy it.
