    1974 Triumph With Overdrive In 2nd, 3rd, And 4th — Having a brother who has rebuilt a 73 TR6 from the frame up, there's no comparing a rebuilt engine to a 40 year old car with 66k miles on it, but of the 3 TR6's (unmodified) I've driven over the years, this is a good car. The sound of the dual exhaust is a wonderful thing, brings back memories of riding around with my dad when I was small enough to fit behind the front seats! Only annoyance with these cars has been that I'm short... I swear they were built for people 5' 7" or above! (the seat just doesn't move far enough forward for me to drive these cars comfortably... legs are just too darn short.)

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: The electronic ignition was a great improvement for these cars, starting in the cold became a much more reliable thing.

    Cons: Seems every other year or so it has to go in to Quality Coaches for one tune up or another, and I swear their base price is 700.00 for anything, and just goes up from there. Experience keeping these types of cars running yourself is a major plus.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: chick magnet

    Cons: can't drive in the wintter

    Tr6 — I loved this car, it might seem old hat to some, but looked fabulous and sounded great. As far as performance is concerned, it was engaging and twitchy, but you wont beat much away from the lights, buts thats not why you buy a TR. Buy one, find a tunnel and try and wipe the grin off your face as you floor the loud pedal.

    Pros: The last of the best

    Cons: Money pit

    Fantastic — The appearance, handling, torque and sound of these cars is superb. When brought back to proper condition they are very reliable and can be driven anywhere. They are easy to maintain and parts are readily available. The Lucas electricals get a bum rap but are as good as any other electrical system of the era. There are many modern upgrade available that help improve their reliability and performance.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: These cars are a blast. They are beautiful and catch a lot of attention when being driven. They have plenty of power and were competitive in their day. It isn't fair to hold them to modern day standards and technology. When put in proper shape it is easy to maintain and keep them there. They have a lot of British charm and will undoubtedly increase in value.

    Cons: Are best suited for those that not only enjoy driving a classic but also tinkering on one. As with most British cars they like to leave a drop or two of oil here and there. Repair shops outside of large metropolitan areas can be difficult to find.
