Here is the first look at the 79 Turbo Midget
First drive video. It rides really good and is really fast. I will make a video while i'm in the car going down the road. We had to had leaf springs in the rear because with the tires would rub whenever a passenger gets in.

My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He was the last one to hear it run until today. It has not been started since 1961. The motor was stuck so we dissembled it, replaced the rings, rebuilt the top end, installed a new gas tank and lines, replaced the bakelite timing gear, rebuilt the carb, new exhaust, brakes, tires, battery and wiring harness since the mice had chewed up the original. We pushed it out of the garage, primed the fuel system and it fired right up as you see here. By the way, I could not see a thing hardly through the camera lens due to the bright sunlight.
