Re: Convertible left outside

I had a convertible outside for some years. Keep the drain holes in the bottom of the doors clear. Yes, sometimes you get a bit of water inside, but put the top down on a nice day and go for a drive and it will soon dry out. Of all of the Minor models...convertibles give you the most 'smiles per mi...

Re: Convertible left outside

My convertible leaks a bit but the double duck hood is over 30 years old. It always has leaked a bit though even when it was new. Personally, I would never leave my car outside. Even when I was a student over 30 years ago I rented a garage for the car. This is not just about the weather but the fac...

Re: Convertible left outside

Any car will deteriorate over time and old cars like these generally deteriorate faster than modern cars which are rather better protected during manufacture. Having said that, my own convertible has lived outside all year round for many years and been used daily for much of that time. The hood has...

Re: Convertible left outside

Unfortunately I’m not able to erect a portable cover, as I don’t have a driveway. Thanks, everyone else for the input. There’s definitely a tough choice to be made! The hood on this minor looks in good condition and that it goes over all the windows and the windscreen well, but I guess that’s not al...

Convertible left outside

Hello everyone, I’m looking at getting a minor but don’t own a garage or drive. There is a nice convertible for sale near me, which looks pretty solid with only some small bubbles of rust underneath the paint in a couple of areas. I was wondering, if I planned to daily driver the minor but unfortuna...

Hello everyone, I’m not sure if this is the right spot to put this. But I’ve been wondering for a while about getting a Minor. But I’d like to learn a bit more about them from someone who knows a bit more than me, such as how I’d maintain one and get a good one, and also to see how they drive as I’v...
