Need some quick advice. Going to look at a Torpado in about 30 minutes

Bad photo. I don't know what models.

What was the order of the models? Any other thoughts?

Thanks

Judge it on condition, component grade/model/level, frame tubing. If I see high end tubing, high end components, and great condition, I really don't worry about where that specific model fell in the product line. If I am spending big $$, then I need to know more about the exact model.

Happy hunting!
