Hi Steve, if your car is the one in your avtar pic, I went to see it!!! Only 3 miles from my home. If I could have sold my TVR Chim in time I'd have put a few bids in on it. It was missing when cold when I test drove it but cleared up when warm. 

Probably a good place to start with the coil. Could be on the way out.  :thumbsup:
