Some members may recall seeing a series of requests on our discussion forums last year asking for support to Peter Hingston, who was updating his previous work, 'Guide to Buying a Used Sports Car' which was first published over 25 years ago.We are pleased to report that the book is now complete and contains a number of TVRs from Grantura up to Tasmin, and is expected to be launched at the NEC Classic Car Show next month.
Please note, this is not to be confused with "TVR - The Early Years" which is being rewritten by Peter Filby and is also expected to go on sale before Christmas.
