TVR_Steve and myself stood looking at your engine bay for a while. I bet that runs well.
TVR_Steve let me try his Chimaera on for size.

It fits!

I have now to buy one and live happily ever after.

(Thanks, Steve. Kind of you.)

Thanks PH for a good morning, it's the first SS I've been to and I had a great time.

The museum was really interesting, especially as I live locally and have had the plant there all my life - but I'd never had the chance to go through the gates!

The variety of metal (and fibreglass, and carbon fibre) on show was amazing, and I'll definitely be making an effort to attend future events.

One of the only photos I've managed to find of mine so far, thanks to the photographer in this thread:

Any time. Let me know if you'd want a more detailed look around a Chimaera, I'm based on the Herts/Beds border.

I rather liked the used Cerbera. It also meant that my 944 wasn't the only car with lacquer peel issues!

It is actually imola red 1 code 366 despite the paint code sticker under the bonnet saying imola red 2.
Apparently an easy mistake for a painter to make !

Thank you for the photos! The current engine spec is:

Polestar map (optional extra when the car was new)
Elevate induction kit
DO88 turbo intake pipe
Anembo Engineering inlet plenum
Ford Focus RS mk2 440cc injectors
DO88 'bigpack' intercooler with 3" hardpipe kit
Elevate ECU relocation bracket
Airtec 3" downpipe and decat pipe
Milltek 2.75" catback exhaust
Currently making 276bhp and 310 lb/ft

I've got a few more bits and pieces to be fitted before it goes for a remap - a Turbosmart recirc valve and wastegate actuator. I'm hoping for 320ish bhp when it's mapped.

At last - Thanks PH for another great Sunday Service and thanks to Mini Oxford for hosting.
I've already posted these on FB but here are my photos of the day. I took your Ovlov from the rear view! biggrin

It's an OVLOV!






Probably the last run out for my Coupe this year. In great company today!












The Z1 is SUCH a cool car! Sorry I didn't take any of your G33 lezdix but she's in the background here! tongue out




Great to see this gorgeous 205, brings back happy memories with my 1.4 XR.


A couple from the museum



I thought this looked familiar

Seen in the flesh and in use at Sywell Pistons and Props last month.cool
