The blokes on the telly missed it, so don’t feel bad. I watched Vintage Voltage last night, because they were doing up a Midget (which I care about) as a modern electric (which I don’t). But when they were done, I saw they made a very common mistake.

This is not that car. Can’t find any images of that one.

Look at the height of the turn indicators. BL changed this in 1968. Early ones were high, later ones are low. I learned this 20-some years ago when I was still dicking around with these, when they were affordable. But I caught it in primer.

The Vintage Voltage car had been previously restored twice, they said. Now it’s three times. The shop that did the $12,000 paint job didn’t catch it, either.

Now you’re more of an MG wonk.
