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!
We've got some news from Carlisle about event-wide contests that TVRCCNA members should be aware of. First and foremost, Carlisle is challenging each of the clubs with a Toy Drive. Last year the Renault Club did their own Toy Drive but this year Carlisle decided to expand it to all of the clubs to see which one can collect the most toys for Toys for Tots. The winning club will be the one that collects and donates the most toys but the reality is, the kids will be the winners in this case. Full details are in this attachment.
Next, the Carlisle Club Challenge will have criteria again similar to last year where rather than select based on subjective material, the winning club will be the one with the most points based on the measurable criteria. Examples of where points were awarded last year are: country flags, vehicle manufacturer flags/banners, games, club merchandise, etc. Think along those lines and be sure to bring British flags, TVR banners, and other decorations to see how high of a score TVRCCNA can get!
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.
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,
We're 3 weeks from Woodwork, is everyone ready yet? Ben is putting the finishing touches on the cruise, new Regalia items are being boxed up to bring to the show, and all the cars are coming out of the garages for their spring cleaning. Be sure that you pre-enroll on our Website if you're planning to attend the banquet so we know how many meals to order, and don't forget to register for your hotel room with the link on our website so that you are in the block of rooms with the rest of us. Also, remember that you don't need to bring a car to attend—Webmaster and Regalia Coordinator Hayden Olenik has been attending for 10 years this year and the closest his car has made it was a trailer in the parking lot in 2010 after his throttle cable broke (some of the Canadian members still don't believe he actually owns a TVR). Looking forward to seeing you there, with or without your pride and joy!
