My beloved old S3 J**6 VCF in Cooper Green is still on here! The current owner got in touch via facebook a few months ago and sent me some pictures. I have a folder of old receipts somewhere at my parent's house and said I'd dig them out.

Also if he wants to sell I would have it back in a shot!

That is a Bury St. Edmunds registration, I am curious who supplied the car originally as I do not think we had an agent here unless it was John Marsh; maybe it had a personal reg. as I think if you took off a personal reg. the county where you did this gave you one of theirs instead of the original county of registration.

It's a Reading reg. It was only West Suffolk until 1974 wobble

Are you sure that is correct, sure I have seen some new CF registrations here, but I will not argue as you seem very confident; all I can say is how dare they take our old registration letters away it will upset my anorak image!

yes We had similar changes going on in Cambridge too. They gave us VA in '74 which was Lanarkshire up until then!

For some reason in 1990 I bought (and sold) a Tasmin +2 automatic. A pony sat on it (gently) but other than that it was a reasonably OK, rare, but a bit smelly inside. White with blue interior. Just wondered if it is still around?

I don't have to look far : my first TVR (a Taimar), bought more than 10 years ago, and the 2 others who followed her (350I and 2500M lhd) are in my garages, as are many of my (now !) classics, including my very first car, a 81' TR7 convertible bought in 1984.

This is from when I owned it about 20 years ago smile


Thanks a lot

I only had 1 x Pic but it was without the model band. I owned it from 1982 - 1984.

Do you know where it might be now ?
Hi Spitfire4v8

Thanks again for posting the pics.
Would you mind P/M me via P/H as an article about 'My old/missing TVRs' is in the pipeline and I would like the chance to share some info. Also would you be able to scan the pics and send them to me ?

Thanks

Ken

I've often wondered where my old Griff 500 is. It was P500 MAD when I owned it, but is now on P605 RBK I believe. Cooper green and magnolia with a roll bar, although I think it was modified quite a bit a couple of years after I sold it. I'd love to see a photo of it now if the owner is out there :-)

Pete
Hi Pete better late than never. Don't come on this site a lot but been trying to research something else and saw your post.

My old 4.6 chim. Great car, 320 hp and my first step into TVR ownership.

Not only was this car fast but it was extremely smooth to drive. A well balanced engine, a light clutch and converted to Subaru power steering, A joy to drive .

I believe it ended up with a chap on here called Mad Mike but have never seen it since.

In the 70s I had:

RUK 562L which was Daytona yellow 1600M but in 1987 it showed as a red 3000.
TVR 91 which was a Daytona yellow 3000M which is still taxed but no idea where smile
OAD 831M which was a maroon 3000M which ran out of tax in 1994.

At least one of them sounds like it's OK.
