I always liked the look of this car but I wonder why I never really remember hearing much about it. I know the name is not suited for anyone, heck it reminds me of a fish but it was a cute little putter wasn't it?

I think the name and design must have gone together. If you look at it, in a way it kind of looks like a marlin. I am pretty sure this was one of the first fastbacks. I think it was Mustangs fastbacks that dethroned this car.

Yeah, I would have to agree that the name really fits the car. There weren't very many of them made, were there? Or else they don't seem to have survived very well, since I haven't seen them around anywhere.

There are times when I wonder what inspires the person who gets to name the new models. For all we know this person could have had a great trip to the Aquarium. Now think about who names cars now, the golf, really?

There were over 14,000 made and they even made a second generation of Marlins but still I haven't seen this type of car before.
