Here's the story

My dad bought the car brand new in 79 it was parked in 91 (when my little brother was born) until i convinced the old man to sell me an underweight overpowered british sports car

The car 1979 MG Midget 1500

Current specs:

Upgraded carb from 1" to 1.5" with ram pipe
100 though milled off the head bumping the compression upto 10 1/4 to 1
ported/polished head valves
.30 oversized bore
Forged pistons, rods, crank
Custom spitfire ground cam
Shaved 20lbs off the flywheel (brings it to a total weight of roughly 8lbs)
Few other minor things

Rusty as fuck.
