Can you recommend a 4-seater cabriolet with a reasonable boot?

November’s London to Brighton Veteran Car run has awoken my fresh air gene. What can you recommend as a suitable 4-seater cabriolet, preferably petrol and with a reasonable boot, top down for around £15,000?

If you can find one, a Mercedes-Benz W124 E320 Sportline convertible 1994-1996. I spotted one recently with a perfect hood and an asking price of just £4,500. (It might be an E220, and at the time of writing it’s still sitting next to the Grotto pub on Monument Hill in Weybridge.)
