TVR vixen alloys

Hello! I just recently reshod my finned alloys and put them back on the car. It's pretty straight forward but I did need different wheel nuts . The washers are a different profile from the previous wolfrace. By washers I mean on the outside of the wheel they are tapered. I recall I bought them speci...

Green SE5a for sale in South Carolina

The owner of this green car who is a poster on pistonheads recently said he sold the car and was planning on relocating back to the UK. No idea who he sold it to.

Am I making a big mistake?

Go steal 4 trays from McDonald's. One under each wheel and it will slide along that grass a treat!

Early SE5 stateside

Can anyone offer advice on a weird observation I have when fitting gaz shocks to the rear of my car? I adjusted them both the same, but when fitted one side is lower than the other, I'm talking getting 4 fingers between the wheel Arch and top of the tire on one side and 1 the other. I started with 1...

Green SE5a for sale in South Carolina

I asked the guy on Pistonhead,s who was going to buy it and take it to the British Virgin Islands, and he said he chickened out due to the heat and the state of the roads out there.

Sully is for sale

Maybe I missed it but I didn't see a mention in your description of the the bespoke 3 point rear seat belts fitted by quikfit safety belt services. That's a real bonus and must have cost Martin port a fair amount of money. If I was in the market I would be snapping it up on that point.

Best SE5a I have ever seen!

This one looks so great. Any thoughts on hammer price? I suspect that guide of $8k might be pessimistic of the right motivated buyers are there.

Green SE5a for sale in South Carolina

I think he has still got it, because of this picture from a couple of days ago and his profile on Pistonheads. Might be an old picture but the profile suggests he still has it in his fleet

SCISSOR LIFT FOR <£1K 2,268kg

I've been looking at something similar which lifts up the front two wheels only, you drive onto them and then a hydralic pump lifts two ramps. A guy in one of the classic car magazines has one and lifted his scimitar with it and then put a trolley jack under the rear axle to get all 4 wheels off the...

This might be a bit steep and far away but https://palmsprings.craigslist.org/pts/d/portland-jensen-healey-taillight-brake/6891597974.html $95 (make an offer?) + postage if it really is in reasonable condition might be worth it. I recall a thread discussing these where someone in Australia was strug...
