You don't have to be overly patient to find nice examples for sale. I seem to see pretty nice TVRs on eBay and Craigslist on a regular basis.

The hard part would be inspecting them. None are EVER within hundreds of miles of me.

Maybe someday . . .

Mark,
That's where the TVRCCNA comes in handy. It helps to get in touch with a member somewhere near the car you are interested in and see if they will go inspect it for you and report back. It can save a lot of
aggravation and money sometimes.

Also, I would like to add. This car is tantamount to buying a new 1985 280i coupe. They were a TVR dealer at one time,I believe, but the part about this being one of only 7 coupes legally imported into the US is not correct. I have documented at least two dozen that were legally imported and there might have been over 30, but they are still very rare as the 280i series goes.
Hopefully someone will end up with this car and give it the new home it needs.
