TS50 was 65+ new, you can get one for low 50s (or less). TE50 was 55+ new and you can get a new one for around mid 40s. I think the fact that it has lost 20% in the 7 months since the BA went on sale is likely to be NOT indicative of its resale in 3 years from when they were new - ie 2005. I reckon by then, you will be able to get a series 3 TS for around the 37-42 mark, with the TE a couple of grand under that (say 30-35).
But I'm just speculating, of course!

I doubt highly that these, the pinacle of tickford's engineering, and the last tickford will drop in value too much. These cars were bought by Ford fans in the beginning, and will continue to be as long as they live.
I'm not sure on this, but weren't they (and aren't they) the fastst Falcon you can get?

If you look at the "classic" Fords they are not always the fastest nor the biggest sellers, they are the ones that people like.
e.g. XR GT, XC Cobra, XB GT, EB GT, EL GT all are very popular even though none of them are really fast compared to a VL Turbo or a Skyline.
The T3 is a really great car and I nearly bought one instead of my GTP. Maybe one day if I get rich I will buy one along with all the other stuff I have mentioned (and a P3 GTHO etc.....)
I reckon that the T3 will be worth more in 5 years than it is now.

Let him that hath understanding count the number of the BEAST:
for it is the number of a F6 Typhoon; and its number is 0217.
I would take a T3 over a GT anyday. That bodykit is just bloody unreal. It works so well with the car. You can see a T3 a mile away. Some lucky bugger has a TE50 (Blueprint) near my work - i see him most days cruising around - lucky, lucky man.
