Owner a Tvr before? Ever wonder what happened to it and where it is now?

Well post some details on here like age colour etc and if we get enough people looking we might all be able to help find them all.

My current tvr is a pathfinder blue 2000 (V) Chim with the private reg S17VRS that was on it when i got it if any one is looking for her.
Also my old one was a ruby mica red 1995(M) with the reg TVR530X, Any one seen her. hope its still ok and still keeping someone happy.

Good idea, Our first Tiv was a 4 ltr Chimaera in Giallo fly yellow.We sold it nearly 4 years ago to Castle TVR when we purchased our present car, A midas old T350c, and i think it was sold to someone down southend way.We have never seen it sinse then.
Registration number S29 TV* I will leave you to work out the last letterhehe.

Cant remember the reg on my old 350i, so will have to dig out some photos.

I cant remember the reg of the Griffith off the top of my head, but...

1992 BRG 4.3 Griffith with oatmeal leather/Biscuit carpet interior. Part ex'd her with DM in summer '05. She was on original split rim BBS alloys, had a Rollcage Centre rollbar fitted and an extremely patchy/farcial service history.

God she was a cracking car though


Would be seriously, seriously interested in buying her back if anyone has her. Oh and she ran so rich it sounded like Roy Chubby Brown farting in a jacuzzi when I started her up every morning God that car gave me some amusement.

Note to all pre cat 4.3 Griffith owners....NEVER sell your car. Even if you buy a Sagaris and throw me a pile of money to work magic on her, still NEVER sell the Griffith.

Right, thats it. Im buying a Griffith again. Anybody want to buy a mint Delta Grale Verde York for £12k or so?

Great idea for a thread. I exchanged my Starmist Green 4L Chim M990--- up in the North East last last May for a lovely Sunset Pearl Yellow 98 5L, R595---. Funnily enough had seen the car 3 or 4 years before at Hexham HC and it was just what I wanted but couldn't afford. My initials in the reg too! It's magic but I have to say that there is a lot of me stays with 4L - first track day at Oulton was glorious. I got all the names of the earlier owners from the DVLA but there's always something else to do instead of trying to trace the history. Anyone know either of these 2 cars; the 4L came up from High Wycombe - for a period it was off the road, Cat 2 from a run in with a ditch.

Sorry, I've rambled....

I would like to come at this from the other angle. Being the proud owner of a 2002 Tuscan S money pit GX02B** chameleon Blue. Would be interested in hearing from previous owners.

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.

I tried to trace the owners of my chim (N315 HLB) It even appears on a TVRCC Back Home run on the "TVR Best of British" DVD. But never had any luck.

So if anyone knows a Jonathan Chadwick, Stefano Liberati or Tony Small and they want to know where their old chim is, I have it, and its bcensoredy fantastic!
