I've still got it Phil !!

My previous Wedge, a silver 2.8 V6 Series 2 Tasmin Coupe became one of the first racers in the Tasmin Challenge and went on to win two championships. Last time I saw her at the Backhome event in Blackpool last year she was running a 2 litre cosworth engine pushing out up to 400BHP !!

Puts the 450 in the shade really !! Would love to buy her back but ...........put your own financial excuse here...........

I left the TVR clan in Feb, but still cant keep away from this forum.

1st TVR was a Chimaera 450 (T450 FRB) May 2000 reg in Aston martin Prestige Grey with Portland interior and a circular milled alloy dashboard. It looked stunning. Sold for a Honda S2000 in 2001. Unkown buyer.

2nd was my Tuscan 2S (PF05 AMK) June 2005 reg in Cosmos Blue and portland / interior. Sold via Fenhurst.

Work (Money) and family(KIDS) issues forced the sale, but I would have another one if £/KIDS wernt the issue......

God I miss 'um.

If anyone here was the previous owner of my 1998 blue Chim 400, registered R391 MLJ that i bought from Fernhust 2.5 years ago it's now rather a long way from home....

It moved to Australia in Feb and is now known as TVRV8.

My old Starmist Blue 4.0 Chim - L123 **J is now owned by another PH'er (hope he is enjoying it)

Did anyone on here used to own my 199 4.5? Black with portland/nimbus full leather. The last owner bought it from Dream Machines approx 3 or 4 years ago. Old reg was T186 **K but was on a private plate before that.

Back in 96/97 I had a great Griff 500 Ruby Mica red M500 CRS bought from Portfield Chichester, sold it through Fernhurst but we fell out over the trade so I never knew what happened BooHoo

I now have an amazing 2003 Cerbera 4.2 Storm Grey with Grey and Red leather. Me thinks it came from Barnet originally reg has been personalised but now is LN03 ***. Any ideas?

Mica Blue '92 Griff 400 Reg J842 LPO (with 500 nosecone/lights), went off to the Southampton area IIRC. Are you out there son?

Cant remember the reg on my old 350i, so will have to dig out some photos.
Nick (Funbar) has my old cerbie, a special bulit for the guy who owned Vision Express and a friend of Peter Wheelers. Keep looking after her Nick smile
