Hi all,

Just a quick intro from Oconomowoc Wisconsin. My Name is Bart Gaffney and I see that I live fairly close to Ben Nelson, ( We have a mutual friend as well. )

I own a '75 MG Midget, w/o a working engine, but the Body is in good shape. It looks like a good donor car for a EV conversion.

I'm looking forward to networking and gathering information in prepairation for the conversion.

My Youngest daughter is a Junior in our Local High School and belongs to their Ecology club. It would make a pretty hip ride for her to commute back and forth to school in.

That's it for now....

Sweet ride! I was just talking to my fiancee about how I want to restore a midget one day (she said as long as she gets to drive it everywhere, ).

Looking forward to seeing what you do with the project,

Hi Bart,

Looks like you're just around the lake from me.

Come on out to one of the Milwaukee EV build days sometime!

A Midget would make a COOL EV!

Bart_75_Midget -

Welcome to EM! Back in the 1970's my Dad would take me to the Jaguar dealership to oggle the MG's. He had a Karmann Ghia at the time, so he didn't have a good excuse to get one. It will be cool to see you get the Midget EV-ified.
