TVR Car Club North AmericaPreserving the "true spirit of driving" since 1981.
Welcome to the internet home of the TVR Car Club of North America, a 501(c)7 non-profit organization chartered in the state of Ohio. We are an organization supported by dues paying members who are charged with promoting the TVR marque, driving our cars as often as possible, and having a good time doing so!
TVRCCNA President Tony Hess recently took his "new" TVR Grantura out on the track at Lime Rock and caught the attention of a local photographer who did a nice write-up on the car and the club. Check it out here.
Chuck Linn emailed me the other day with an interesting idea. Seeing as how there is only one RO for a multi-state area, what about having a state or regional-level organizer in the areas that the current RO does not live in? Sort of an associate RO. There still would be only one RO per region, but it might make it easier for those who live too far away from the RO in their area to participate in a Club function, such as get together's, drives, etc. That being said, any volunteers??
Webmaster Note: We just started this in the DC area with a monthly DC-Area TVR breakfast, patterned after the Detroit-area and Cleveland-area breakfasts in Midwest region.
I got an email from Dave Graham our Canadian RO saying that he will be stepping down from that post. I wanted to thank Dave for being one of the driving members of the Club. He has always been there to help and support the Club in anyway he could. Thanks Dave. I have also been informed that some of the other Canadian guys will be taking over for Dave. More to follow. Also we have a new southeast RO in Dan Sauriol. Welcome Dan. If you are in the southeast contact Dan and say Hi.
Well, it's official! Bill Rachal (Dominion Spares) has purchased Classic Motor Works from Marshall Moore. The transfer is now complete and Bill will have a vendor space at Carlisle in time for WW 13. Let's support Bill in any way we can. Tony has been talking to both Bill and Marshall while the details of the deal were being worked out. Bill is eager to be the TVR parts go-to guy in the USA. We are sure there is going to be a learning curve so we encourage all club members to bear with him while he learns the ropes. Bill does not yet have a website up and running, but he does have email and his contact info is:

If you've found our page you're probably here for one of two reasons: 1) you're a TVR owner looking for a community of owners willing to help each other and have fun, or 2) you heard the name TVR or saw one and wanted to learn more about these rare British cars. If you're part of the first group, why not sign up for a membership and then check out our technical articles available to club members. If you're part of the second group, you can start with "What's a TVR?" and work your way through some information on the various models and history of TVR in North America. Either way, thanks for checking out our site and we hope you find what you're looking for.
Greetings TVRCCNA members,
Well, Spring is just around the corner (or so they say). Now is the time to dust off your TVR, check the fluids, battery and gas. Woodwork 2014 is only about two months away. Registrations are coming slowly. Don't forget if you want to in our block of rooms you have to make your reservation thru the hotel link listed. We still need things for our auction. I hope all of you have seen the results of the survey. Very interesting to say the least. As most of you can see our membership is mostly east of the Mississippi, hence Woodwork is an east coast event. In January I contacted all the RO's west of the Mississippi and let them know that if they wanted to put together a Woodwork West the Club would fund and support it. Let's hope they can put something together. Again this year Ben Roth is hosting a tour on Friday the 16th. Details are in the current issue of the TVR Times. Hope to see you at Woodwork 2014 at Import Carlisle.
