You might think I'm nuts, but I'd rather drive...

Drove a REALLY nice wire wheel A today, then a Morgan Plus 8.

....and I'd rather drive my Midget. :driving:

Call me crazy, but that's just the way I am.

That's the ideal situation, when you have the right one for you.

Nothing wrong with inexpensive taste, either.

I love both of those cars, but design wise they are probably a lot closer to horse and buggy than they are to modern sports car.

Part of my problem is I'm a bit apprehensive about driving other people's stuff. I'd rather look at the A then drive it. It's just not swoopy enough from the inside for me. The Morgan was cool, but once again, Id rather look at it. I'd much rather drive my Midget then look at it... :smirk:

Oh, and coming back to the original intent of the email, yeah, I do think you're nuts. :devilgrin: (even though you like your Midget best - I like mine too)

I felt like I was gonna fall out of the A and Morgan. I like the fact I am ~in~ the car w/ a Spridget.

Nothing I have ever driven takes a curve like a spridget. Its all about the light weight and being so low to the ground.

My dentist has an elise and if I had some horsepower and some sticky tires I think I could beat him. Of course I have never drove it but he might be timid LOL

Which is why I love Minis!

But I have to admit that these Spridgets have really grown on me over the last couple of years. I'm very nearly converted...

A mini will roll though. You have not lived until you have been in the back seat of a mini hanging upside down by the seat belt. Also, you may never see it here because they are rare and people are afraid of damaging them, but the mini can do an absolutely astounding reverse wheelie. You can almost stand one on its nose like a ballerina slipper.

Called an "endo", short for end over. I would ~SO~ love to drive an Elise.
