    They are really nice looking cars. I love the tuscan. Judging by the guy on ebay that sells salvage ones they are hard to keep on the road. Dont people call them plastic coffins? My brother was gonna buy one with a knackered engine. He asked a tvr expert and he said that its a good opportunity to take all the crap performance parts that tvr put on that rover engine and replace them with decent performance parts that will make it more reliable.
    I`m jeolus.

    Always loved TVR's fantastic styling brute power and a sense that it might kill you should you get a bit lairy with it, i'd have one tommorrow if i could afford one and the insurance to go with it!

    I've now taken the car out twice. No breakdown truck yet!! I've noticed the wheels are all square, where the have dropped into holes, curbed etc. I have me a Flintstone car. Perhaps I should join the RAC.
    I got the car cheap. Not always a good thing. Looking through the bills on the car which I presume most of them are there, totals to an outstanding amount of £25,403.10. Perhaps I ought to have second thoughts on this car, GULP. The last big bill was last May for £2235.60.
    Anyway sod it, its fun. Till it goes wrong.

    Hi Acker,

    Now you have got it, enjoy it for what it is.

    Like you, i would buy one if it was cheap enough inspite of their reputation for breaking down.

    We are only here once, so might as well enjoy ourselves as much as we can.

    Cheers.

    Russ.

    Thanks Russ,

    I even took it to work today. Had my first face off with a new Bentley (not Coupe) He was trying to get a big Jag to have a go, then he saw me in close quarters. He gunned it down the A456 Halesowen by-pass, he didn't know what hit him.
    Great fun
    Had my monies worth already.
