1979 Morris MarinaReview
A Turd. — The Marina was my first car. Despite buying it from a pro mechanic who was a family friend I had nothing but trouble with this beast, both from mechanical issues and my own driving inexperience. Amongst my friends cars it was not only the slowest but also the one that handled worst. Add in the diarrhea brown colour and beige vinyl seats and you have everything that was wrong with 70s design. But you know what? I loved that car!
Pros: Fully reclining seats. Big back seat area. Large boot. Easy to work on.
Cons: Unreliable engine/gearbox/axle/suspension/cooling. Poor handling. Underpowered. Brown. Easily confused with large pile of poo.
