YAK Car Pic of the Day

You’re forgiven if you looked at this photo and thought, “What a lovely little MG Midget.” Close. But no cigar. It’s actually a 1968 Austin-Healey Sprite Mk IV which, you’ve probably surmised, was a kissin’ cousin to the Midget. Both were produced by the British Motor Corporation (BMC), with the Sprite Mk II actually preceding the Midget by a few months in 1961. The MG version however, would eventually overtake the A-H Sprite in popularity and remain in production until 1980, while the last Sprites were 1971 models. This black Sprite was seen recently outside of a Youngstown repair shop.
