Haynes's highly respected "'Classic Makes'" series would not be complete without an account of TVR, maker of hairy-chested sports cars for over 60 years. Adhering to the series format of blending history and technical information with practical guidance in the form of driving impressions and buying hints, this book is a complete study of the company and its cars. It is a rollercoaster ride as the Blackpool-based company has had many ups and downs, but through it all the sheer charisma and flamboyance of TVR's cars - now true classics in almost every case - shines brightly.
