    i have located a micro midget.
    It's serial number 01007 and says MICRO MIDGET on the label on
    the instrument panel.
    It's rear engine (Cushman), in pretty good shape. Have you heard
    of this brand?

    I remember back in the early 60's maybe late 50's the 1/4 midget's .How did they start the car's? I remember them picking up the back end while going forward and dropping the rear end to the ground.Something like popping the clutch on a car.Any one have any info on this? PINCHER

    They were/are direct drive. Give them a shove to start them.

    Very, very nice!! Have just started my own restoration of a '58 Mantz. Wondering if those side air scoops on the rear cowl were on your car or a "personalization". Regardless, any idea where they can be found now? THX !!
