This is a sad way to treat a Spyder, or any TR7; this guy is dangerous!
Watching the steering, it looks like this Spyder has the 50mph shimmy, and after this road test possibly a few more service items.

If I lived in a dry, all year-round, salt free state, I would not mind a TR7 or any classic that looks like that as a daily fun car. Restorations, in my opinion, are over rated and often overdone to the point that one gets freaky if a cloud forms and a drop may fall on the perfect paint. However there is a huge difference between driving your car spiritedly and beating the snot out of it. That A-hole needs to be dragged out of the car by his stupid pony-tale and left in one of those dusty ditches by the side of the road.

Next time you road test the you might get better results if you release the parking brake. Also you might want to brush up on your facts.

I'll bet that video does more to raise market awareness of the TR7 than anything that has be done in the last 25 years. GIve it a month and more people will be looking to buy TR7s. Better buy a couple of extra ones now, before the price skyrockets. ;^)

I thought it was a pretty fair evaluation and fun to watch. The attempt at donuts on the dirt field was a bit juvenile but you have to jazz things up a bit for the audience. The only fact he got wrong was production dates for coupe vs convertible. But as I said, he didn't try the brakes. That would have notched down his enthusiasm a bit.

Paul,

Somehow I just don't see you going out into a dusty field and doing that in that fine piece of machinery you're driving.


George,

I wouldn't worry to much about TR-7 prices going up, I don't think your going to see a $40,000 TR-7(or TR-8 for that matter)anytime soon.

My thoughts are in the camp that Steve Dulchich needs a good spanking for treating any old unknown car in such a way. However its his car and its the YouTube market he's appealing too I warrant . smiling smiley
Mostly I found it surprising that he'd ignore the High temperature that apparently his gauges were showing and say all sounds OK so thrash the pants off the car regardless. Thats another paddling I'm thinkingsmiling smiley smiling smiley
Also that this car didn't want to rev. 5000 revs . barely into it my kind sir!!!!!!!!!!!
Mr Dulchich , I hope,will unleash the hounds or rather the Horses with some future rebuild to be shown in the not too distant future would my fervent wish . And none of this slightly wilder camshaft as he go the whole hog and show what an 8 valve really can do a la the Group 44 car . V8 guys don't yell at me please!!!

It's his car and as such is his to do with as he pleases but what rankles me is this guy and guys like him are one of the reasons that over the years British cars of all makes have disappeared from the roads.
