Grabbed a picture the other day, as I pass it most days. Also spotted yesterday (Saturday 26th) a minty minty green Morris Marina (I think) in Cliftonville Tesco's car park!

I think that marins lives opposite one of my mates, the old chap who drives it keeps it garaged, its certainly the cleanest marina I have ever seen!

I'm havin dirty thoughts about leaving a note on the windscreen of this offering to buy it, but I don't have anywhere to put it and the rust looks beyond my limited skills/budget

Go for it! I think it is an automatic thou. The rust doesnt look that bad, it wouldnt be that hard to do yourself.

It's has got a slushbox. The rust is worse in some places than the picture really shows. Not terminal, but certainly beyond my limited skills. I also don't have anywhere to put it to do it up and mrs86 will probably divorce me if I have a "rolling restoration"
