Sadly, the small, two-seater convertible has been slowly going out of fashion. But in the 1960’s and 70’s, mini convertibles were de rigueur and à la mode (and I don’t mean “topped with ice cream).

The MG Midget was ubiquitous during this period. The British mini was produced between 1961 and 1979. The car was originally an evolution of the Austin-Healy Sprite—another 2-seat convertible of the day. With an engine boasting 46 hp, the car was more fun run-about, than sports car. With no standard heater, and a questionably-useful soft-top—it was for the young and adventuresome. Over 225,000 MG Midgets were produced.
