Delve beyond the slick adverts and glossy brochures of a car company and that’s where you find the really interesting stories. After all, it’s the people that design, build and break things, the workforce that live and breathe the brand. TVR were no different and a tour of the TVR factory would confirm it.
TVR were not a company for glossy brochures, it was an unusual company filled with some incredible stories. Take a look at this selection of pictures from employees in and around the TVR factory:
I'm fortunate enough to drive classic cars and speak with owners, designers and engineers. This has given me both inspiration and stories to share. I write stories that interest me, from the E-Type replacement that formed the basis of the Aston Martin DB7, to the missing Metro Cooper and the truth behind the Rover 220s nickname. In addition to attending car shows, track days and other informal automotive events for the last 20 years, I have planned & driven various road trips. I once drove to the Nurburgring and back in a day, went karting in Montenegro and also drove through the Florida keys in a Mustang GT. The blog is a passion project so any support is appreciated; whether that is by sharing on social media or buying me a coffee!
