Terry Horler is the Sprite and Midget detective. His invaluable book will help anyone restore their car to correct specifications. As these cars grow older, and more people alter them both cosmetically and dynamically, it gets more and more difficult to know what the makers intended when they constructed these vehicles. This is especially the case with steering wheels, grilles, badges and interior fittings. So if you want to try a Sprite or Midget as the makers intended (and - a personal view - at their best) let Terry be your guide. If not, and you simply want the pleasure of the best place to browse nostalically about these cars, Terry's book does that job too. A few cars he pictures have minor alterations, but there are some gems as well. Rare colours are illustrated (such as Pale Pink) and there is a mass of information on year by year changes. Overall no-one has come close with other books about these endearing little sports cars. It is also clear that the people buying these cars for serious money want them to be correct. Terry's book can make you wealthier, too!

ISBN 1861262620

TVR today is a highly respected manufacturer of exclusive, stylish sports cars, which are among the fastest on the road. So successful has the TVR become that it now has its own TVR Tuscan challenge series. John Tipler charts the company's history, from Trevor Wilkinson's initial optimism, the near disastrous move to a wedge shape, and builds up to the present day under Peter Wheeler. He covers the development of the cars and profiles the leading characters, Martin Lilley and Peter Wheeler. Finally he looks in detail at the factory, the staff, the unorthodox design process, the creation of the chasis and bodies, and the immaculate care that goes into the manufacture of each care, including full technical specifications for all TVR models.

The Elise saw the return of the genuinely exciting sports car. This was the first Lotus for a generation to truly revive Colin Chapman's ideals, proving a worthy successor to the seminal Lotus 7.

This volume charts the complete Elise story, including interviews with the car's designer and development engineers. It contains information on buying, owning and running an Elise and features details of aftermarket accessories and modifications. Also included are appendices detailing model specifications, performance data, production figures and full listings of dealers, specialists and clubs.
