|Notes:||I was still relatively new to the internet in 2004, and this TR7 was my first ebay purchase. The images in the listing had evidently been photo-shopped and I innocently accepted the sellers description without question. I bid without viewing first and learned a valuable lesson! This turned out to be a tired, well used TR7 and was not half the car I had been expecting...
Nevertheless, it responded well to a thorough cleaning and fettling and I eventually managed to make it presentable.
When the time came to sell I was approached by a film company which had been commissioned to source a yellow TR7 by Jeremy Clarkson. I sent them photographs (good ones this time) and they sent their driver to pay for the car and collect it.
The next time I saw my TR it was embroiled in some horrific jousting tournament with a Ford Scorpio in Clarksons Heaven & Hell DVD which came out later that year. Both cars meeting their end in a head-on collision / fireball amid much pyrotechnics!!
Ironically by then I had replaced the TR7 with a Scorpio (N215MFH) - identical to the other car used in Clarksons jousting contest.
|Fate:||Destroyed by Jeremy Clarkson in his Heaven & Hell DVD (2005).|
