Do you know, now that I think about it, I am not sure I have ever seen a single TVR since I moved to NZ. Probably couldn't make the electrics work long enough to get them here...!!

I'm going to add this as another Dream Car



Morgan Plus 8?


I know of about 3 TVR's.

Some really tidy ones too.



3? Wow. They can probably make one that works then...! :-0

Honestly - a car called Trevor?


I had a Trevor in the UK, never let me down. A Porsche down here left me stranded several times!! Don't believe everything you read on the internet ;)
Do your research and you won't regret the purchase.

V8 TVR Tuscan is a good car. Really interesting how the headers wrap around the front of the engine.

This is my current personal car:



I have a Kia Cerato as a company vehicle.

Dream car is already my personal car, except with the following engine in it:
Holden 304 5Litre V8
Yella Terra Whipple 1500 supercharger


And stuck behind it the following gearbox:
Borgwarner T5 World Class 5 Speed Manual



I have the bits now, with the exception of the supercharger (waiting on $) so just a matter of putting it together!

I have hit over double the limit over the bridge. Scary to say the least.

I am proud of my 143 Km, not sure about having anything to do with being a real man though.

See link for GTR action. : )

I have never done those sort of speeds on public roads but I did take a friends race ready Ford Falcon out on Manfeild and did around 270kmh. I nearly needed an underwear change and my pulse rate was at around 200bpm I reckon.
Huge buzz to drive at that speed, but it showed me just how fast things could go very wrong. To cover the main straight in such a short time was scary.

When would one ever be able to achieve that, I just spent a week in Auckland and I don't think we ever got above 50k on the bridge

I really don't think bragging (usually somewhat/?vastly overstated) about how fast you can drive on public roads is appropriate here, you are just going to encourage some hormone fuelled fella to maim someone

Chuckle... You probably set the alltime lap record at Manfield if you hit 270Kmh :-)
