  • What In Tarnation Is A Teever?

    ​ ​ ​


    As a huge fan of TVR cars, I had to buy this TVR Tuscan Speed Six when I saw this 2013-era Matchbox mainline release in black on red in a garage sale bin. The wheels/tires are Matchbox Premiere items off a broken, playworn BMW Z3 and were painted/detailed to look more like a set of Fifteen52 Chicane monoblock alloys on performance tires. Lights were all detailed, as were the dash and console, the grille was hand-painted, and everything went back together seamlessly. I hope @funeralxempire from the old forums comes to this site, he'd love this one.

    Thread name is inspired by my father and how he couldn't pronounce foreign car names, he called the one TVR 280i fastback I looked at as a younger adult a Teever and refused to back down when I explained that it's short for Trevor, that being the first name of the founder. My lecture about Lawrie Bond, Alec Issigonis, Jem Marsh/Frank Costin, Colin Chapman, Max Balchowski, Sydney Allard, Carroll Shelby, etc. didn't help matters much in the way of introducing foreign oddballs to his world.
