A dad who bought a run down sports car the year his first child was born has finished restoring it 27 years later - just in time for his son's wedding. <br />
<br />
David Townend, 60, bought the 1974 MG Midget in 1994 for almost £300. <br />
<br />
He kept the rusty motor in his garage with the intention of returning it to its former glory.<br />
<br />
But 'life got in the way' and the restoration project was put on the back burner.
