Hah, I do have a green marina exactly the same as that!

Usual BL bashing, by those who've never owned one.
Lots of Motors, mostly semi broken....

I lived in a village near Oxford in the 70s. You could tell if someone worked for British Leyland at the time because they all had Morris Marinas, mostly estates or Princesses if they were upper middle management. I was envious of those that had spacious Marina Estates as I charged around in my cramped Triumph Spitfire.
