Hi all.

Been back in N. Ireland for 4 months now and haven't seen ANY other TVRs. I know its the winter months but thats no excuse!

So...who owns TVRs over here, what model & where are you based?

I'll kick off...Starmist green Chimaera, Antrim

May be if you attended a TVRCC meeting it would help.

We are out and about quite a lot.

Silver Chim 400, used passed 5 days with roof down.

I think I saw you sitting at Sandyknowes r'about last week. Not sure tho. If you're interested I wouldn't mind meeting up for a run-out somewhere. I have an '88 Renault Alpine GTA V6 Turbo in Alpine Blue. Co. Antrim

I saw a red chimera in Banbridge the other week

Saw a gorgeous Ferrari in Bleary too - don't know what it was [girly mode on] but it was red though

Good to see there's a few of us about.

DJ, That wouldn't have been me as the Chims been off the road the last couple of weeks whilst I've been trying to replace the battery...first time I've had the dubious pleasure of a Chimaera battery replacement I'm moving house at the moment, but it would be good to meet up sometime after.

Beck,

Looking at your profile I take it you used to live in the Midlands? I have just returned from there after 8 years. What brings you over here? Must be the Guinness

Not quite sure what brought me over here anymore. But I'm here and that's all that matters

Mine's not quite a TVR, but it's a wannabe! If you really squint you can almost imagine it's one.

Well I've managed to get the dead battery out and connected up the new one. Just waiting for some daylight over the weekend so I can try and figure out how to get it back in its home!

Nice run out on Sunday along the coast to Cushendall then back through the Glens to Ballymena. I'd forgotten how great the scenery was around there

Yip....great run and one of my favs !! Nothing to beat it if the weather is nice and you certainly got that on Sunday !!

I, however, was stuck at home erecting a shed....ah well...at least I can get all that gardening crap out of the garage
