    50 years later, the amount of improvement to even basic things like braking is mind-blowing. It's like no one understood physics before 2000.

    Exactly what I was thinking. This trend has GOT to stop. I don't know a single person who actually likes what the industry's doing here.

    Lexus exec: "Yes."

    I think it's a noticeable improvement over the outgoing model but that's just me.

    My neighbor has one. I always thought it would be cool to have that car or a MGB GT. After watching how much time he puts in to barely getting his to run, I am cured.

    I learned to drive a clutch on one of those green TR6.

    So disappointing when Triumph came out with the TR7

    So true. English cars of the '70s were notoriously finicky. My family had an MG Midget, a Jensen Healy, a TVR Tuscan and an Austin Healey 3000. All had their own set of issues...although, my brother still has the Austin.

    Speaking of Jensen's, if I had been 10 years older and loaded I would of had an Interceptor for sure.

    I can't find the clip, but when Clarkson, Hammond and May all bought 70s British roadsters and explored their "charms", that was enough to scare me off from what are otherwise great looking and fun to drive cars from a bygone era.

    L2S, that Interceptor is cool, no doubt, but I'll take anything looker's right over it in less than a heartbeat.

    I have to say that tr6 is a nice drive , linear power , handles well, sweet exhaust note - it’s a hoot to wring those gears out. Pretty clean too , great lines and stance. I’ll take some better pics once the seance is over.

    Yeah, my next British car is gonna be a B GT but only because I can't afford to do an Interceptor properly. I've been wanting one of those MGs since I was 6, it's time.

ID:	389542interesting paint job on the valve cover. that is not a very powerful engine. I've seen a MGC-GT with a 6 cylinder engine.
    On the other hand this TR6 is ready to go and just gathering dust (and cat hair) in my garage.

    I'm really happy with it as an extra vehicle. Easy to work on. Enough power to handle a modern freeway. Eye turning looks. Fun to drive if the weather is nice.
