23: MG B
Although lightweight convertibles took off with the Mazda Miata there was actually one that was available long before. The MG B, a notable British roadster that still has a cult following today. The first thing you’ll notice about the car is the lightweight design. The mechanics of the MG B were also very easy to work on, which was appealing to new enthusiasts of the brand. The car handled well around twists and turns and performed better than you’d expect.
As it turns out the MG B has managed to find success in the secondary life, but the car had a lot of shortcomings. Shoddy build quality made these cars a pain to live with while they were new, much less used. The small stature of the vehicle can be downright terrifying in urban driving conditions or in between towering SUVs. In addition, there is a scarce supply of parts still available.
