Love it


Restored Car. Body 2007-2008.

Yet to restore. Running gear.

General Comments:

This car is owned because you love LBC's (Little British Car). I owned a 75 MG Midget in 1998 and used it as daily driver, and it performed well considering how unreliable they are.

This one I bought to totally restore. Any part can be had at a cost of course. You need to be very mechanically inclined to own one of these type of cars.

They are fun to drive.

Fun to work on.

Will provide lots of years service (Summer Months) if taken care of.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
