    That was my stomping ground in the 80's and I always liked TR7s. I don't remember one being a regular sight, though. :o

    This car was attached to the American Embassey in Dublin and was tax exempt from new, it then changed hands in 1985 twice in the same day the second owners name is on the no plate i'm wondering if she might have been a car dealer at the time

    I have no info on the TR7, but I have a 1980 Mini 1000 with a very close reg no of 757 SZJ

    808 SZJ is owned currently by a gent in Dublin. This TR7 was owned by a female member of the United States Embassy here in Dublin for 5 years.

    Yes you are right on the female member of the US Embassey but the car is mine now and about to undergo restoration.
    But there is another owner in between, that i think worked for RTE !!!
