  1. About 15 years ago I travelled in my Midge with a trailer from Eastbourne to Plymouth to collect a 948 bonnet and 948 twin carb dashboard. Stayed in Charmouth with relatives overnight on the way back.

    Some friends in North Wales, who live a couple of miles in to a narrow road, tell of a local community bus driver, who, when confronted by a driver who would not budge, locked up and went and had a cup of tea at a nearby farm. Blocking car had gone when he returned.

My JC Midge, however, despite many emails to and from DVLA to get it registered as such, is still a 1965 Herald saloon, historic and MOT exempt. I gave up, so just keep copies of all correspondence....
