MG Midget

This site is meant to be purely a photographic reference to engine conversions in MGs. Photographs have been supplied by many people who have all taken a different approach to the task. There are no hard and fast rules as to how any conversion should be done but I hope that the pictures on this site will give you an idea of what can be done and how to do it. All sections have a page of thumbnail links to the full sized pictures for quick reference.

With thanks to Bill and Kathy Young I now have the first MG Midget conversion on the site. Therefore I have altered the navigation slightly to divide the site into sections. As I get more conversions (a T16 Magnette and a V8 MGA should be appearing soon) I will further divide the site. I still have a little work to do but all the pictures I have are on the site.

Thanks to Brian Kraus there is now a Mazda 13B rotary engined Midget featured, any more out there I can include?

None of the pages themselves have been moved, nor will they be, so any bookmarks you may have to individual pages will still work.

New on the Site, a Buick V6 powered MGA, all pictures and descriptions kindly supplied by Harrison Manell.
