Insuring an older car for a young driver?

A while ago, I remember reading in your segment that the MG midget would make a good car for a teenage driver due to its small engine size and resultant cheaper insurance (relatively speaking).

Would you please kindly indicate which insurers this applies to? The ones I have researched still classify it as a Sports Car and so charge extortionate amounts for young drivers such as myself, despite its small engine.

I didn't mention the MG Midget. I did mention the Morris Minor. You can check with classic car insurers that you can link to from this directory: www.honestjohn.co.uk/useful-websites/tax-insurance.../
