TE50 (III) - Opinions

Hi guys,
My brother is very keen on purchasing a TE50 (III) but the few reports he has read have not been flatering on the engine harshness and the cars behaviour in the wet - he is 40 and long past his "hoon" days. I would love to hear the views of people who actualy own (or have) one of these cars.

thanks in advance

I have just recently bought a T3 TS andit is a great car and I am sure he will like it, what build no is it as there is a register on the net with photos and info on those that have been registered, mine is no 105.By the way I'm 53 and not past my hoon days yet LOL

Re: TE50 (III) - Opinions

G,day,
thanks for the reply. He has only just started his search so he hasnt got a particular one lined up yet. I think he will jump on a TE or TS when one comes up, he is not fussed about location but wants relativley low K's (about 75 his is max). If he is lucky enough to find one, I'll give you the details.
Cheers
