The motor vehicle department have recently been given a lovely 1973 MG Midget, very kindly donated by James and Carol Elliot from Sandbach.
Currently sitting in the motor vehicle workshop, the MG Midget is both full of history and character.
The two-seater sports car will be used as a teaching resource for students on our IMI (Institute of the Motor Industry) motor vehicle courses. The MG has been dry stored in the James and Carol’s garage for the last 20 years, having previously been re-shelled by them. This car is a great example of how technology has advanced in the last 42 years.
Understandably the couple were sad to see the vehicle go, as it has been part of the family for over 30 years, but are pleased that it’s being put to good use at college.
The vehicle was donated along with a large collection of spare parts, many of which some of the students had never seen before. The little MG Midget has caused quite a stir amongst the students and staff. Everyone is excited to start work on restoring and renovating this great little vehicle.
It will certainly take pride of place in the workshop and be a valuable asset to the college for many years to come.
