A Real Fun Summer Car, Big Rag Top — Super fun to drive, everyone smiles at you in this car, duel exhaust gives this engine more power, new everything and the Black with Red interior makes for a great color combination. The rag top, opens the whole roof right up.

Pros: Great color combo, a real eye catcher.  comfortable and fun to drive

Cons: minor oil leak, not original color, no fuel gauge

I Just Love It — Best of both worlds? Looks from the past and upgrader performance, brakes, electrics make it nice to drive and seen in. Could do with a respray and new interior, though. Great fun, great noise, just demand caution in taking corners!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Oval window and power!

Cons: just avoid corners!

Marmite — Marmite, you love them or hate them. With semaphore indicators and a 36hp engine its not he most practical motor but certainly has character. A dip stick fuel guage and a top speed of around 64mph you have to have a passion for these.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Everything

Cons: Finding original parts

Great Car To Drive In Nice Weather. Good On Fuel And Easy To Pack Up. — This is a concept that Hitler got right when he said he wanted a cheap dependable car for the people of Germany that would carry a family of 5 at 60 mph. He nailed it. Its a little dodgy driving with a cross wind at times.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: fun to drive and to look at. easy to park and a head turner

Cons: heating system is lacking
