I don’t care if the mighty boy is unreliable. Chicks love guys that drive little beasts. Lol. Blew up my Corolla the other day, my plans are to get a Mighty Boy next and blow that engine too. I will upgrade the engine with a turbo engine of some kind. With the power to weight ratio and the fuel efficiently of the light weight beast what more could you want. Cheers mighty boy lovers. and yes I am an idiot.

Yeah I'm looking at getting a mighty boy too. Currently I own a BA XR8 ute, and want a mighty boy as a project car. I have found a shell for $85 and want to know what type of motor and what size mags I can get for it. Comments appreciated, Danny_Boy36@hotmail.com.

In regards to having a Mighty Boy as your first car, DO IT. I did. The only problem was when I was hit in the rear and the car was written off, I HAD to get another one.
My grandfather always said that "if you can drive that piece of crap, you'll be able to drive anything." It's true.
The lack of acceleration and the need for constant gear changing is a great way to learn to drive a manual car, let alone the fact that parking is a breeze. Also the fact that it's only got two seats means that you don't have to worry about turning down mate's requests for a lift every where.
There are Mighty Boy fanatics all over the place! We are usually happy to help future owners any way we can, and often meet and go cruising, so the social aspect is great.
For more information, I suggest going to 'The Australian Mighty Boy Owners Network' web site - http://www.teammightyboy.com/. Have a look at the gallery and see what these beasts can turn into, and browse through the 'For Sale' section, and you're bound to find something.
Hope to see you on the next cruise!
