You have the successor to the adorable MG 1100.  Do I really always mention 
1100's?  Your car is _almost_ as cute as mine, but yours has a much bigger 
engine.  In fact, it's an MGB engine.  Other than that, I don't know much 
about Marinas.  However, I knew some people in San Diego who bought one new 
in '74 and hated it.  When the brake master cylinder went out under warranty, 
they decided that the car was a flaming piece of junk and traded it in.  Is 
yours maroon?  Were the original owners named Cesena?  If you'd like, I can 
introduce you to these people.
