RO Matthew Eager ''Kermit'', joined the club in 2009 after purchasing his first TVR, a lovely Tuscan mk2 in Jaguar F1 green. Over the past 5 years, ''Kermit'' as it is known has undergone many upgrades including bonnet conversion, engine dressing and upgraded suspension. 2012 saw the addition of a Chimera 4lt HC as Matthew's daily drive for work although now laid up for some restoration it will soon be back out enjoying the sunshine.
Matthew's love of TVRs started when at the age of 16 his brother arranged for some trips out in a Griff 500 and a bright yellow V8 Cerbera at the his local West Yorkshire meeting. starting his working life as a landscape gardener after studying at Askham Bryan College, York. Matthew's love of 4 wheels saw a move in to the motor trade only 3 years later. Now over 10 years later he works as an aftersales manager at a local main dealer. Matthew has been happily married to Michelle for over 8 years. Both Matthew and Richard look forward to welcoming you to a meeting soon.

Richard Lee (better known as “Trickie Dickie”) joined the club in 2004 after he bought a lovely Dark Brown 350i, which he called NEO (reg was G320 NEO) He was perusing Ebay for an MGB for his wife, when he saw NEO at a very reasonable cost and with lots of history. He won the bidding and without ever seeing the car he had it delivered on a transporter. Luckily Neo was as good as advertised and greatly enjoyed for over 2 years before he sold it to a close friend., enabling him to get another Wedge shaped TVR in the form of a 1990 Mica Blue 400SE. Apart from wanting to respray it bright yellow is very happy to have this forever. With it’s typical Wedge loud exhaust Richard constantly gets praise from everyone (except his neighbours). On runs out even other TVR owners who are 5 and 10 cars behind say they love the sound his V8 Wedge makes!
Starting working life as a Computer Programmer, Richard now runs his own Print and Design Company doing a full range of print. He also specialises in printing Patient Menus for many of the largest NHS Hospital Trusts all over the country. He has been happily married to Janice for over 25 years and has 2 sons, James and William. Both love runs in his car and other friend’s TVRs and want a TVR each in the future.
Richard is an ex biker and also has his PPL (Private Pilots Licence) but now prefers the ease and convenience of jumping in his Wedge in his T shirt and shorts and blasting the cobwebs away on runs out in the local Yorkshire countryside. He was taught by an ex Police Class 1 Driving Instructor and became a member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists.
