    a while ago I had a chance to buy a beutiful sportcar...it was something called a "marcus", by the time I went to tell him I wanted it it was gone...this was in the late 70's

    I'm pretty sure it was british lealand...anyone from the uk remember this car?

    Those are models from the 70's? Damn that was way ahead of it's time.

    Ditto on the rich crack...

    Nice car, but looks as if it would be too low for me. I'd fall down trying to get in :eek:

    0-60 in 4.2 secs, and a top speed of 170 mph!

    Price is about £42,000, about $82,000.

    That is a REALLY nice car. Will have to re-consider getting a Morgan.
