Thanks to our TVRs out there and CDs in desks TVR will always live on. I have a copy of that Tuscan pic I was given at the motorshow knocking around somewhere.

The sunset shot looks very much like those in the old TVR Tasmin brochures (and I think some in the Chim brochures too?) nerd

That observation isn't quite as geeky as it sounds, I had one on my bedroom wall as a kid so I woke up to the sight of the 280i press shots every day for a 10 or so years...

I was in the old TVR factory last week having some work done by the factory trimmers on my Griffith. It's nice to see the ex factory guys still working there in parts of the old factory, but also very sad when you walk round all the parts that are laying silent.

It is a national disgrace that this company no longer exists.

I was a schoolboy in 1993 when I wrote to TVR asking for a brochure for my graphics project. Sadly I cut it up to use it, but I have one or two pictures still floating around.

I can't believe that they are history - a car maker cut off at it's best with the T350 I feel........

I think there should be a minutes silence fot TVR every year.....

That bring's back some very fond memories. My Griff on a warm summers evening with the roof down cruising(sometimes more) through the English countryside, nothing could touch it when it came to putting a smile on my face. Everything I've driven since hasn't come close. I miss that car, I'm now wondering why I sold it!

That bloke is about to say, 'yeah it's fked, take a pic though'
He is a druid blessing a car covered in icing sugar with his magic stick.

Blind faith and prayer were preferred over real testing.
Lolz!

That Speed Twelve looks lovely, I thought they only made one road going one in that shape and that it was the red one. Has someone resprayed it or is there more than one?
