My old Chim 500 I believe it is still in the North East. I part exchanged it at HHC for a Tuscan Convertible which I sold in 2016 to a guy in Aycliffe who only had it 3 months and then I think was sold by Str8. Miss both these cars but still have the V8 S alongside the Morgan.

Interesting you retained the V8S. Why?

Hi,
I had the Chimaera first and loved the sound of the V8 and the torque that comes with it. I then part exchanged it for the Tuscan but although it was a fabulous car I missed the V8 sound. So I bought the V8 S and ran them both together. I then decided that I needed to scratch the itch for a Morgan so I kept the V8 S and parted with the Tuscan. The V8 has been SORN for the last 2 years as I have had no time to use it. Still start it occasionally and still sounds brilliant but have been using the Morgan for the last 2 years. Maybe its time to get the S out of hibernation.

I am restoring a Series one Vixen reg NPY 11F. Its been all sorts of colours from sherwood green to gold/yellow to blue. If anyone knows anything about it Id love to hear from them. I do have a list of some previous owners from before the DVLA stopped giving this out. I have tried to contact them all, but no luck. The car is 51 years old so I guess it will be hard to find some of them.

Hi
Your Chim I think was owned by Matt Smith (Durham) who sold it via HHC due to an impending baby. It was a nice car and Matt kept it looking like it does in your pic.
Your Tuscanwas sold by Str8.

Hi,

I met Matt as he contacted me after purchasing the car. I also knew it was for sale with HHC but don't know where it went after that.
The Tuscan was sold to someone in Aycliffe who I believe sold it on to Str 8 after a couple of months. I understand it was sold by Str 8 prior to being advertised. I lost track of it after that.

Thanks for the info. though.

That's my old V8's, loved the car and really miss her. But had an itch for a Griff that needed scratching and then a Saggy itch so the Griff had to go. I nearly looked at buying back about 4 years ago.
