Enjoy the pictures even though the car is very, very badly rusted.
P.S. It had MRF's on the front & white wall BF Goodrich's at the back!!!

guys spotted on last weekend when iw as in delhi spotted a MG TC midget 2 seater sports coupe. On sunday morning a kid and his dad were driving down on the nh8 towards delhi spotted near raddison. the car looked in emaculate condition and it was green colour(may be original paint). everything about the car was perfect .
a day after saw a m5 in a jam on the same highway.whata pity.
coundnt take a snap because no camera and g ot no camera mobile either

Well, I dont know if the T series MGs were ever badged the midget. This here is the original TC, post war.





The Midget is what moralfibre has posted, introduced in 61 and sold till the late 70s, with ugly black plastic bumpers due to american laws. It was essentially a badge engineered Austin Healey Sprite.
