Nice to see the old girl again and she aint looking bad. A few things not spot on with her but easy jobs for the owner! Great appliance and photo.

This TL has just been restored, the new owner had to carryout a lot of work repairing the bodywork. He has made a fantastic job too. This was its first time at a rally.

Is this the TL that was stationed in York?

I like the quad headlights better than the older design. These had rectangular lights in very large white bezels, which I always thought looked very strange.

But I am not sure this full grille is better than the old treatment on these mid engine chassis aerials, which used to be a simple rectangular aperture between the headlights. Adding grille bars where there is no grille seems a bit odd, like the "farm gate" Dennis appliance grilles of the same period.
