Well, that’s certainly the case with many of us. But what happens if you fancy some soft-top classic action but your funds are severely restricted?

Don’t worry because there are still plenty of options available to you. Okay, you might not be able to stretch to that immaculate MGB or Vitesse Convertible you’ve always fancied, but even with a budget of as little as £1500 you can get to enjoy some wind-in-the-hair fun.

Mazda MX-5

Arriving in the UK in 1990 and remaining on sale for eight years, the MkI MX-5 became a legend in its own lifetime, and is now a fantastically popular modern classic. Well, what’s not to love about a nimble rear-wheel drive two-seater roadster that combines eager performance with fun handling?

Both the 1.6- and 1.8-litre versions of the MX-5 provide plenty of entertainment value, as well as being highly affordable now. Superb cars can top £3000-plus, but half that figure still buys a presentable, well maintained and MoT’d example that’s ready to enjoy this summer.

Great car - but what about spares availability?

I regained 20 years of youth when I bought my copper red 2.0i, love it. It sticks to the road like glue. There's no better feeling than having the wind in your hair and a responsive pedal under the right foot.
No problem with spares or repairs, because of the number of these cars out there the prices stay low.
