Wayne Vanderzwaag & his '78 Midget

My wife and I got married at 19 yrs old while I was serving in the Navy. We were able to get a new midget in 1979. After that we were hooked. My wife and I had a wonderful 35 years and three children. So much for midgets. I lost my wife to cancer in 2013.
Last summer I found my midget on eBay. It is the same color as our new one we owned. The person I bought it from got it from the original owner. 
At that time it had 29,000 miles. He wanted to clean it up and give it to his daughter. After he got it finished she didn't want it. He placed it in his garage and kept it covered for 10 years. Last summer he decided to finally sell it. It was in Missouri. I was hesitant but bid on it. I ended up being the only bidder. I went down from Michigan to pick it up and was very pleasantly surprised. He did a great job on it. After a few electrical issues from sitting I was able to drive it. It brings back a lot of good memories and I love to drive it.
