Love The Car — Better than an MG. never. let me down in terms of fun factor. Top is easy to take down in an instant. One of the best cars which I have owned for the longest period of time. Easy to work on and very affordable and very available.

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

Pros: Fun to drive

Cons: Can't take the whole family

Poor Man's Real Deal Sports Car — No room for anything, but you and your partner and that's even limited. Hop in, drop the top and escape from all your real world problems. Daily commutes turn into adventures that have you smiling ear to ear as long you don't mind wind blown hair!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This car is downright fun to drive!  Very easy to regain control when having fun.  

Cons: super small, no room for the kids
