1973 Triumph TR6 Review
Good Cruiser — I liked the looks of the car a lot. It had great styling and the convertable top was awesome on cool fall days. The motor had plenty of torque to pull you along. It was a great car for cruising around town.
Pros: Great styling. Reliable straight six motor. Independant suspension.
Cons: Lucas, king of darkness. Had plenty of electrical flaws.

A fabulous, proper sports car. A really good classic. A bit squeaky, not brilliant at cornering but the acceleration was fab. You sit low so it feels like you are faster than you really are. Get the ... Read More
