I think it is obscene! All those cars out of circulation, out of any enthusiast's reach, and banged up!

It almost looks like my old '55 Tojeiro Bristol in one of your ebay shots.

You're a fool. You see an image, form an opinion with no information to establish a solid groundwork for logic, and have the audacity to spew out your bile.

The cars' owner and custodian can be said to be far more enthusiastic about the marque than most any of us. He acquired the majority of these cars at a time when their low value might have seen quite a few go to the breaker's yard; he gave them a roof over their heads when they might have had to suffer the elements, and by diminishing the supply side in the face of growing demand, he has done more to raise values than you ever will with your loose typing finger.

You must have good reason for having confidence in your sense of the prevalent moral leanings of TVR enthusiasts.

Best,
B.

I have been in touch with the guy that owns those cars, and he has been really helpful in helping me source body panels and parts for a MK1 Grantura, he even supplies new chassis. He has more knowledge and enthusiasm for these cars than anyone I have spoken to or corresponded with before.

Yes, It is a Rochdale Olympic, in front of it is a Daimler SP250, and next to it is an Elva Courier.

Yes, I agree that these rare cars are safe from the ravages of weather, and I am sure the owner is an enthusiast, he must be! but, unless they are for sale, or in a que to be re-built, they are also safe from the ravages of restorers........Perhaps not a bad thing in hindsight.............!

No it is not.

I´ve been to that place twice and this is definitly something else. He told me the name of the car, but unfortunately I can´t remember it.
