yes ofcourse compliment each other.
Modern day then and now/last.
The T3 or more so 5.6l showed how far it could go to 2002, IMO the prior V8's were let down's, 220 probably the best, farfar better than the 175/185 wannabees.
Once IRS was introduced the handling went the next levels and TSeries owners reaped the rewards topping out with the 5.6l a brilliant Aussie Ford.
Roll on 16yrs the Sprint, its chalk and cheese comparing that far back and yes how far our 4doors had moved ahead is the ducks guts, full stop.
Even though the T3 isn't ol school as we know it it does feel ol school when comparing them but its still just as driveable in its own right comparing to our last offerings.
