....

yeah knew someone who had one, leaked like a sieve, not enough leg room because of the high tunnel, switches were temperamental and it was soooooo dangerous in the wet that he thought he owned a carrousel

mind you he did also own an Ultima so thats what floated his boat lol

i love the tvr but unfortunatly the mechanics arent very good, the dash boards are pure works of art. the cars are pure sex to look at.
but the enignes are unreliable, may be look into getting one with a blown or high milage engine and drop an rb lump in it.

Gotta agree with everyone else, look gorgeous, BUT absolutely the most unreliable peces of crap.

My uncle tried owning two but after various engine, gearboxes etc failures he went back to porkers.

My friend Damo had one. Lovely car when it worked. Unfortunately that wasnt very often so he sold it after six months of garage bills and stress.

If you have the money, a garage and access to another car then they can be great fun. You can also pick them up for cheap at the moment.

Stop being silly, go out, take a seat in your R34 and give it some, rethink, job done!

If not, get your wallet out and buy some new mods for the R34, go out again, take a seat and give it some, rethink, job defo done!

By all means get a TVR but don't:

1. Take it out in the rain (the windows probably won't fit)
2. Drive it very far (you will go deaf)
3. Take it to any important occasion (it will go wrong)
4. Drive it fast (it's made of fibreglass - you do not want to crash it)

Having *seen* TVRs being built at the old Blackpool factory I now understand what TVRs actually are: beautiful hand-crafted sculpture that you can sometimes drive around a bit. But they're automotive art first, a car second.
