The Beach Mini is back thanks to one German firm

You can keep your Mini Mokes, because the best doorless Mini was the Beach Mini, built in limited numbers by BMC in 1962. Effectively, the Beach Mini was a way of turning on North American customers to the tiny car, lacing a few dealers with the step-through tiddler as a promotional tool for more conventional versions.

Really have to wonder how rigidity is maintained with the thin A-pillars.

Can you say zero side impact protection? Not an issue if it never leaves the beach, I suppose.

This looks like a cute Golf Cart. I do wonder how stiff it is.
