Hi Tomcat,

I really like the T series cars. I'd love to own a T3 TS50 or TE50 which was the last and some say best of the bunch. I only wish they had retained the nice alloy heads the the earlier T series cars got.

With the front end rebuilt the handling is transformed. It's surprisingly tight and precise through the corners. I've really been enjoying chucking it through the twisties on the way home from work. It handles amazingly well for something that has leaf springs and a live axle in the back.

They got pretty good write ups and praise for their handling when they came out:
