Maserati MT-3 roadtest

Going through some old papers the other day (a little too much time on my hands) I found this. It appeared in the April 1974 issue of Road&Track magazine. They had a long history of doing a joke roadtest for the April issue. One year they tested the Goodyear blimp, another year an elephant etc. This one I saved, being as much into bikes as cars at the time. Enjoy.

Back in the days when Peter Egan wrote often, the offices were in Newport Beach California, and MG Mitten ran adverts and had a good business.

I love this. "Mid engine, rear drive..." "Engine type: biped"

Reminds me of when the horsepower for a Rolls Royce would be listed as "sufficient."
