Wedge List / Spare parts available for local pick up
« Last post by Michael Madden on April 29, 2018, 08:02:13 PM »
Greetings all,



It saddens me beyond belief but it looks like the time has come for me to

exit out. I've tried to hold on and wait for better circumstances but I'm

liquidating.



I'm sorry but right now it's local pick up only, I can not afford to box or

ship since I have been unemployed for far too long.



First to offer up for free:

Excellent condition dash - main piece.

Transmission

AC/Heater core

Set of headlight pods



I will soon be listing my 1980 TR7v8 as soon as I establish a fair value. I

might offer it here first on the list but as I recall no one seems to care

for the "Ferrari look" as it's been called.



In any event if anyone has need or interest in the items above please

contact me.



Thank you,

Michael Madden





MMM

Wedge List / TR7 for sale

Hi:

If this is not the appropriate place to let other members know of my car

being available, please let me know. Otherwise:



I would like to find a nice home for a very clean, totally solid

(rust-wise; there is none) DHC. Great tires, electronic ignition Weber

carbs (originals included),  clean interior featuring Miata seats

(originals included, but worn out). Runs great, no smoke, drips. Beautiful

top w/top cover &  new car cover. Shows 42,000 miles & while it's very

believable,  can't verify it. Clutch & brakes are great, etc, etc.



Please contact off list with questions. Asking $3800, which I think is a

very fair price for a car this nice. It's been totally dependable. Not a

show car, but a really nice driver with great potential.

Although literally an ocean away always considered Clay a good friend from our days as forum moderators on the old TR7 Forum. Was sad news when Monica let me know. Glad to hear he got a good send off.





Gods speed Clay,

For those of you who missed it, yes, Clay Thompson died of too many health

complications on April 2. I was at the funeral (as one of the pallbearers),

the club sent flowers. They actually closed part of Houston's Interstate Loop

610 for the funeral procession to the cemetery. An amazing sight if you've

even been to Houston, traffic backed up for miles. If you'd like to send his

wife Edna a card, write me, I'll send you her postal address.

Clay Thompson had great plans for his TR8 (same colour as Iguana). It had a

monster Woody-built engine, some automatic transmission mated up and I think

hebd already had the paint done. Problem is he didnbt let on which shop

had it, at least not to me. I know the history and had even driven the car to

a VTR South Central Regional but not the shop doing the work. It was one of

those bIbll work on it when I have timeb shop arrangements too.



I get to try and sort out what happened to it and try and rescue it. At least

the Woody engine!



First off, did someone here buy the original engine and transmission? Ibm

just trying to locate the pieces at the moment, Ibm pretty sure he said he

sold the original drivetrain off.



Anyone know anything, please Email me? I think I can dig up the VIN at least

so thatbs a start and Edna has the titleb&
