Spotted A Tvr!!!!!!!!!

So I was driving over to Grand & Toy to buy some office stuff when I spot a TVR driving down the road. Now i've never seen a TVR in person and I just had to snap a pic of this. Sorry about the crappy quality, it was taken with my blackberry. It's an older TVR just not sure what model.

Yeah this was in Whitby and he was doing a bank run so I assume he lives in whitby. First time i've ever seen a TVR, wish it was a more current one, but cool none the less.

ive just recently moved here from england, i used to live 20mins from the tvr factory used to see all the cars on the test drives going past my school, unfortunately the company has now shut down and is not producing anymore cars at presant, hopefully in the future the factory will reopen, but there is only one factory in the world which is in my hometown of Blackpool which is in Lancashire, i think it is a griffin, but could also be an older tuscan!
