TURNHAM TS8 has a new life

 

After many years Peter has gathered together all the necessary parts and components and rebuilt this fabulous car. He decided to rebuild it in the turbo configuration which is how it was when it was wrecked. I think he really wants to see just what a nice car it is with double the horsepower it had when naturally aspirated.

 

I've told him I would love to have another drive of the car as it was one of the most memorable driving experiences of my life. The answer, however left me with little doubt of that ever becoming a reality... Something like "if I rebuild it — I'll be the only one driving it".

TS8 at Phillip Island

These photos are of the renewed TS8 turbo at the historic meeting at Phillip Island - March 2011.
It was the cars first major outing after being completely rebuilt. It was a very successful outing.
Peter had the time of his life and was thrilled with the way the car performed.
