How many are there in total? I seem to remember something like a total of 2000 S's still exist of 3000 made...

I know there are a couple near me (Terry on the local TVRCC list who has a red one I have seen around IIRC, although thinking about it that might be TVR Tell on the map, and the one that was smashed up in Beckenham a few months ago, owner is on here but have forgotten his name).

Long way to go before we have them all! How many regular S'ers post in this section?

A lot less than that- adding up those registered as 280 S + 290 S + v8s registered with DVLA only gives around 900 - of course being TVR some are registered as "TVR missing" - but no way of telling how many of these are S models

Mine seems to be quite well known - I am generally approached at meets with "Ah, that's Norman's old car!" hehe

I googled the reg and it appears in an ad on the sgs engineering website, and also the wikipedia s-series page!

Everyone has their 15 minutes of fame, apparently.

Well I found this 15 seconds of fame when I bought mine

It appears I am the most Eastern S of a British persuasion.

I have to wonder; Is this an achievement??

Ok, I have already done and it seems it's working.
I choose a light blue pin - like my V8S smokin

I see, UK is overflowed with TVR's bounce

Cheers,

Nice idea - have added mine. I guess my claim to fame extends to having owned it since new - Feb 1991.

Ye, it's a great idea, probably the most reliable way to find all S owners smile

Thought for the future.

All cars have a mandatory gps device fitted.

It broadcasts a unique ID.

Stuff that in an interactive map -then we can see TVR's whizzing about all over the place!
