Yeah, right, Al. You appear to have forgotten the Morris Marina, the All Agro, the Maxi and the Maestro. The bloke next door to me bought a brand new Marina and was proudly showing it off to me the day he had it delivered. I reluctantly had to point out to him the widespread rust in its seams. I had the misfortune to borrow a Maestro from a mate for 18 months as he went on a world tour. It would take me three hours to tell you how terrible that car was, not least because there was no way on God's earth, despite all the mechanical knowledge on the planet brought to bear on it, that you could get that car to do more than 25 to the gallon. Actually, three hours would be too long, as the bloody thing rusted away in less time than that. And don't even begin to ask me about my Triumph Dolomite.
