She spent the first 12 years in the Birmingham area.

In 2011 the infamous head gasket was done with cam belt etc at MGF cars in Peterborough.

It was then purchased from there by someone from Darlington who only did 900 miles in 6 years.

We purchased her in June 2017 for £900.

In August 2023 Midge had done 92,000 miles 25,000 by us.

The previous owner said we probably would not get much further than the Lake District.

To date we have toured the Cotswolds had many weekends away in Northumberland, Lincoln etc. We have also toured around Scotland’s NC500 and two tours of Europe with more planned.
