Yes, MGB GT.
They don't fundamentally boil over, and the handling isn't excessively wayward. They weren't sportscars even when new, mind. It'd certainly be quieter than an S3 and more bearable on long distances - I used to use mine for a 150-mile weekly commute and, once I'd sorted the worst of the engine (previous owner, dodgy carbs, failing water pump), it was fine.
Come to think of it, I still own it, probably should get rid, it's been sitting in a barn for 10+ years. Battery probably needs charging...
They're easy to bin because they're easy to source. There's always an easy purchase that someone's poured a load of cash into and then died or realised that they'd prefer a Kia (much the same thing)
