Well tinydog, if you like tiny dogs, then I see your point. If you  
look at the profile of a RB Midget, it has a nice flow to it. I never  
said it was the best. THe RB MGB's on the other hand are a bad attempt  
to graft something onto a pretty decent style. But it also has the  
wheels stuck a foot inside.

I like the older Spridgets, but I think they have the front end cut  
off, kinda like a modern SUV. I am only speaking about profile, from  
about any other angle (and on a RB Midget, the rear is the worst), a  
Spridget has a "design follows function" ideal to it.
