Good to know! Although I haven't driven many true performance cars of any era, at least few with enough time to actually get to appreciate them.
I'd like to think so. Not having had the chance to look inside one (nor, it must be said, the drive to bother to do so!), I can't say much re actual brightness levels.Apparently its nothing like that bright in real life......just a faint background glow. You would not be able to see anything outside when driving at night if your eyes were used to that level of interior light.
Hey! Steady on with the Morris Marina. Twas my very first car...My grandfather was like that. He had a sucession of crap BL cars like Maxi's, Metro, Marina's and a Ballade shape rover 216. All rusty and unreliable. His last car was a Suzuki which was totally trouble free...
There comes a point when you have to do what is right for yourself, even if it isn't buying British. JLR is Indian anyway.
My brother had a 1.8 Coupe. Actually was pretty quick...when it went.My Grandad's was a 1.8 Coupe.
Within 3 weeks of buying the thing it had broken down twice and a couple of weeks after that it was written off in a low speed crash. Despite it being only 20mph or so it put my Gran in hospital with a head injury.
Crap car, but with an interesting story behind it - one that gives an insight into the terrible state of the British car industry at the time.Not to forget the later Ital either.
Get Giugiaro to handle the production, film an advert in Italy and name it after a famous design studio and nobody will realise it was a reskinned Marina designed by Harris Mann.
