Hi All,
John was an absolute Gentleman, May he RIP
He was the guest of honour at Stafford classic show a couple of years ago
He made everybody welcome and made time especially for kids,
We saw him take away the barriers and "security" to let a lad sit on the MV and in the Ferrari so his Dad could take photos


John
1961 Super Rocket
1963 RGS (ongoing)

saw him at Ingleston one year, lovely fella

Kinghthoods - there's a good few well deserved ones, and then there's the greased palm type
All the best - Bill
1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco
