I see you've changed your avatar, sab.
This is not an actual picture of mine, but the same car. It was a red 1961 MG midget, bought used in 1969 and driven very little before giving up on and getting rid of it. It was not only my first car but the one I owned for the shortest period of time. It refused to start on cool, damp days (which, considering it's country of origin was remarkable), leaked rain profusely through the ragtop where it met the windscreen and side curtains (no roll up windows. They were plexiglass sliders), liked to jump out of first gear (which was not synchromesh), had a nasty penchant for attracting the attention of the police when driven by a long haired 17-year-old, even when he was driving under the limit, cost a fortune to insure and was completely unsuitable for dating since it had no back seat. It was a very pretty, totally impractical and unreliable piece of junk.
Edit: I recall paying $225 for it, getting the same amount back.
