Magical memories of MG Midget

My first car was a 1932 MG J2 Midget.

The photograph shows me in the car at the Three Bridges, Nuns Bridges Road, Thetford, in the early 1950s.

I bought the car from the motor engineers W and G Lambert at Thetford where I worked.

I had a choice at the time of a three-wheeler Morgan or an MG, so I settled for the MG.

I sold it for �120, but if I still had it it would be worth more than �30,000. I even passed my driving test in the MG and still have the Suez Crisis petrol ration book for it but it was never needed.
