    Prices of modern-era TVRs are due to skyrocket

    I think always keep a tool kit in the boot or your breakdown membership up to date is good advice for Tvr owners. Sound sexy but really how long can you put up with the drone before its annoying inside? Stick to German metal it will last longer.........

    SAAB file for bankruptcy

    My mate had a Saab 900 T16S back in the 90's and it was fast,had individually design and comfort.You didnt see lots of them about and they seemed upmarket for the era. Vauxhall/GM killed the brand in my opinion. My hope is that jobs get saved somehow. Andy.
