Hello all,

Just thought I would ask is anyone the owner of the H120 reg TCG188P?
Looks a cracking example.
Thanks in advance,
Ian.

I'm not sure that he is a member on the forum to be honest.

Did you view the green car?

No he's not; nor a member of the club since 2014. I think he still has it - usually goes to Powderham event.
Was owned by a member in Essex - Andrew Diggins and before that by Barry Quinnell when it had the reg 8 CUE.
Previous to that had been one lady owner since new; one of the last H120's I think, but whilst a lovely car you can see how factory was skimping on quality in the last year or so of production. G.

Thanks for the replies. Valid point on the last of the line quality, and yes Jason I did go and view the H120 in green...it was a 3.5 hour drive. The seller was honest as was the car, it however required a lot of work to the interior and did not have the correct fitment of parts from original spec. The chassis and body were in very good nick. A great shame for me also as it cemented my want fo rthe H120. Cracking motors. Ian.

They certainly are cracking motors!

Mine was very popular at the Killerton House show yesterday, receiving some very nice compliments.

Certainly does not surprise me, yours looks a great example. Nice to see heritage vehicles being kept on the road...I was hoping to find a h120 that I wanted by now so I could attend the 50th anniversary meeting but I know with such a rare vehicle it will be about playing the waiting game.

Hi - it's a long time since I've been on the forum, but couldn't help but notice this thread. I'm the proud owner of tcg. With all other commitments it doesn't get used as much as it really should, but it always great to take it out when I get time. It's still only done just over 30000 miles from new, and is as original as the day I bought it which is coming up 8 years ago. I can't see myself ever selling it.

Hi Steve,
Thanks for getting in touch. Your rapier certainly looks nice from the pictures, I can see why you are a proud owner. Should the time ever come please bear me in mind, it will be going to a good home. Pm me if you wish.
Best regards, Ian.
