We will feature here a Midget or Sprite of the Month so will need a supply of cars who’s owners are happy for them to appear along with a few details (200 to 300 words) of the car and some photos. We will then publish details for visitors to look at and admire! Previous Cars of the Month will be available to view so over time we should be able to feature every model from Frogeye to 1500. Digital Photos should be no more than 1MB and not less than 100KB in size each and will be resized as necessary before uploaded to the website. Photos can be scanned for upload if required by arrangement. Please scroll down to submit the details of your car for Car of the Month…
