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.


Just seen this.......... I now own the Red Chim 500

I'd like to hear from the owner of my brother's old 3000M - reg TVX 777N. It used to be black but then I heard from the owner several years ago that it had been restored and was now in burgundy.

I've never seen it in the classifieds or mentioned anywhere online.

Hopefully it's still out there. It's the car that got me into Tivs.
Currently for sale on eBay, now blue

Mine's no longer listed in the UK. I heard it'd gone abroad and I hope that's the case. At least it gives me the comfort that it might not be dead yet!

My old chimaera I think now resides in Australia. P825 VWX, viper blue 400.

My old T350 (GX54 FOP, Toyota blackish red 4.3) was sold to a really nice chap in Northern France and unfortunately then suffered an engine fire.

Neither of my two old cars seem to be about now but would be interested if anyone recognises either or can shed any light on their demise

The first was a Rosso Corsa Chimaera 400 L941FPD which was p/x against a Estoril Blue Tuscan Red Rose X246 FOT. Both were sold on by Hawthorns in Farnham.

Still got the photos from the factory visits to see them being built - those were the days

Great to see the Chimaera again. It was my first TVR and I really enjoyed driving it.

My old 400se (G356 VKP) is for sale again in the classifieds now.

Just scrolling through PH and picked this up. I bought G356VKP about 6 years ago - my third wedge, and am still sorting a few things out. Have no history on the car pre 2010 so if you can shed any light on the history that would be appreciated. Looks like she had a lot of track use given the serious brake upgrades. Also looks like she had a roll cage. There are two holes on the o/s rear between the boot lid and roof originally covered with black rubber circles - never could work out what they were from. Any information appreciated, cheers Steve

Its a cracking car and I'm enjoying the roads around Northumberland in it.

First time poster, long time reader.

Going back to the OP all these years later, I'm the proud owner of the pathfinder blue TVR Chimaera.

Now on its original 2000, V plate.

I had a silver Chimaera 400 in 1998 registered P33 TVR. The reg is now on a 2010 Land Rover defender. I sold it to Broughton's TVR in Bristol which has long since disappeared! I have no idea where it is now, or even if it still exists!

(Sorry about the pre-digital age photograph!)

Hope it gets used a bit more than it has in the last four years.

I would be interested to know where my 1995 Chimaera is now. M759 TOA.

it was registered as a 4 L but was actually a 4.6 with various mods running at 300-ish BHP.

Last I heard it was owned by a guy called Mad Mike on here I believe.

Anyone know its whereabouts?

I sold it in late 2014 and it looks like it has covered about 8000 miles since then until its last MOT in 2017.

Generally, people seem to be using these cars less and less.
