Easy decision and had a bit of a play on the way home turning off the A53 to Longnor, Monyash and Bakewell leading to home. Thoroughly enjoyed it and fell in love with the car all over aga...

So, can anyone help with how I might be able to fi...

Great pics - thanks for sharing.

I'm curious if the TVR Tuscan just out side the gates and wondered if there are othe TVR/Alpina owners out there? Would have been good to chat with them ....... but of course not necessarily at the event.
