I know David, I took one comment wrong the other nite, but that is normally
not the case.    <G>
I just wrote and told Geoff - I paid one dollar for my TR -- it was
"residing" in a farmer's field along with a steer and a couple of sheep. 
I bought it in June -- drove it for the first time yesterday -- needs more
brake work, I really had to "stand on the brake" to stop -- (I didn't hit
anything<G>) --
BUT  --
it loves to GO and like you said, David,  it hugs the road and loves the
curves  -  
it needs painted (badly), needs a driver's side window and tune up plus
seat covers  --  I think that would keep it happy for awhile.   I know  --
you will laugh when you read this -- but -- it is a TR7 -- but It drives
beautifully and I certainly enjoyed the wind in my hair and the sun shining
down on my punkin' head while I was taking it for a spin.
 It will be interesting to hear about the "Princess" if Geoff scopes it out
-- wonder if he can get it for a dollar?

Now, if someone could find me a BugEye for a dollar?  <sigh> still dreaming.
