The Top Ten Morris Marina Myths
The Top Ten Marina Myths,don't believe what Clarkson and the Top Gear lot
say,the Morris Marina was nowhere near as bad as they make it out,remember
cars have come a long way since Marina's were made in the 1970's and
although not perfect by any means they are far better than many would have
All cars from the 1970's have some fault or another and most by todays
standards are pretty poor the Marina was a simple no frills car that gave
cheap and reliable transport to all sectors of the market,yes they had
their share of faults but all cars from that time did (and how many cars
today don't have some sort of problem) the Marina was well on par with most
of it's competitors and better than many.
French and Italian cars were shockingly bad but people seem to forget
this,and although renowned for their reliability the Japanese made vehicles
of the time just rusted away before your eyes a few British winters soon
sent them to the great dealership in the sky German cars were again only
comparable but seem to be rated by some to be far better than they really
were.Ford were Ford and Vauxhall were Vauxhall everything British Leyland
did they both followed suit,the build quality issues the strikes and far
from perfect products they offered to the public,even the Scandinavians
were at best only average expensive to buy,run and maintain.
Well i could go on but try and keep an open mind about the Marina don't
believe the myths it really wasn't a bad car.
What is true that many don't know is that most of the early 1.3 Super
de-Luxe cars were built by crack smoking satanists at British Leyland's
Cowley plant production could only start after a black mass and a ritual
sacrifices had taken place,stoppages are put down to strikes by the unions
leaders,but the real truth is they were all devil worshipers in league with
the Lucifer,Derek "Red Robbo" Robinson was the High Priest of the order and
not in fact a communist as the press made him out to be.
Thanks for taking the time to read this,sadly those minuets it's taken you
to do so have gone you can never get them back again.
