I came across this article by Peter Cheney from the Globe and Mail on his opinion of the TR6. The article is a little on the old side but the message is timeless.


I howled with laughter on the very last sentence and I thought you guys would enjoy this article. I thought about putting it in the Six Pack Forum but I know that it would ruffle too many feathers with the purists. The only thing I like about the TR6 is that it looks good thats why I bought one with the intent of doing an engine swap and some other modifications.

Well of course, if you have driven a modern vehicle, the TR6 is crude. But, I have one, and we are friends, and will stay that way. I'm not offended, but I won't be offering the writer a ride either-so there! He mentioned a row of toggle switches-hello? I've never seen toggle switches on a factory I.P. (Son works for Chrysler in interiors, and I'm not allowed to call it a "dash"). Was he actually in a London bus?
