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!
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.

Well another Out of the Woodwork is in the books and for a new venue things went amazingly smoothly. There were a few hiccups, but those can be fixed for next year. I was amazed by the number of cars (40) and the quality. We haven't had that many cars on the show field since Round Valley. And as some of you know we are going back to the Glen for 2020 same vintage weekend. The weekends weather was great no rain except for some minor shower at night after the days activities. As always the auction was it's usual silliness and seemed to be enjoyed by all. I want to thank John Mleczek for coming over from the UK and handling the auctioneer duties as well as bringing over a pile of really rare and cool TVR stuff. As some of you may or may not know Colin Lyons has had a stroke. I got "speedy recovery" card and had everyone who attended Woodwork this year sign it as well as we took a group photo that also will be delivered to Colin. We all wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him at future Woodworks. A big thanks you also goes out to Ben Roth for the tour on Friday as well as Andy Gear, Terry Telke, Jeff Loss for their help on show day usually Hayden helps me but he couldn't make it this year.
A special "job well done" goes out to Paul Guinn for his imaculate Tuscan wide body There were so many really nice cars there many of us (myself included) didn't notice it. Also a special "longest distance traveled" goes out to Doug Colanic for coming all the way from Colorado I would also like to thank Peter Viner-Brown for donating his 86 280i for our raffle. I thought that because we were closer to our friends in the Great White North there would be more of a turn out, but Rob Stewart and Buzz carried the flag, if not the glass for those who didn't make it. Hint Hint
I would really appreciate feedback good or bad so if things need to be tweeked for next year I can get on to it. A big thank you goes out to all the TVRCCNA members that made the weekend one of the best Woodworks we have had in quite awhile. For those who are interested it looks as though I spun a bearing on the B with only 5 hours on the new engine. Bummer. I hope to have the Grantura back up to speed for next years Woodwork and as far as I know there might be 4 TVRs racing next year.
Oh, one more thing some of you have been trying to get in touch with Bill Rachal at Dominion Spares. Yes he is still alive, but is dealing with some family matters and will be back in the game as soon as he can.
As always if there is anything I can do that is TVR related don't hesitate to contact me.
