Guys,

Just seen the Douglas Valley breakers topic regarding a recently scrapped 350 they have in and I regret to announce that it is in fact 350se No.1 , extensively damaged and probably now beyond repair, such a shame weeping Does anyone know what happened and if its owner is okay?

I'm really gutted to see another 350se bite the dust, only 23 of us left now in the big ol'world as No.19 departed similarly a few years back,

R.I.P. No.1

Keith (350se No.9)

Oh no, thats such a shame. The owner (not sure if it was the current one) set up this wiki page I believe:-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TVR_350SE

Seem to remember he was very much into that car. :-(

Edited to add:

Keith! LOL! I currently have FB open and am replying to your message. Coincidence or what!. Saw the 350SE No 9 bit and put 2 and 2 together. Expect a message in about 3 mins! :-D

Hi Dan,

Chris Thomas must have sold No.1 as it was sold earlier this year by David Gerald TVR so it must be the new owner that crashed it.

Also, you mentioned in your mail that one of your old neighbours also had a 350se, can you recall what number it was?,

Speak to you soon,

Keith

Hi Keith,

I also own a 350SE that was ordered from the German TVR Importer.
This should be the last and only LHD one ever made by the factory.

Cheers

Hello

Yes regrettably I sold no. 1 in February this year. I was really sad to hear the news that it had been written off as Cat B. I don't know quite what happened, I had a call from Douglass Valley thinking I was the last owner.

I had the car for over 4.5 years and enjoyed every moment of owning it having spared next to no expense on it.

Look after the rest of them.

Chris.
