to all the readers out there...
I approached the
publishing of this edition with some mixed feelings - because of events that have unfolded in the last few months and
my decision to wind this E-zine down due to a lack of time .
Almost two months
ago, a good mate of mine passed away. The circumstances are private and to some extent, un-important.
I wont "gush on
here", but please take the time to read the "Tribute" page.
It is enough
to know that without Marks help, there would be a considerable number of Mopars out there not running the times they are,
or even running at all - my car included.
Readers may remember the "Little Teen that did" article from last edition? - It was Mark Ellis who built that engine.......that's
just one example of how much poorer we are for his passing.
What we can learn
from Mark's life is that its important for the life of the hobby to help those with an interest in learning about our cars, and
we have a RESPONSIBILITY to help coming into the hobby - after all, that person may be another "Mark" just starting
The "Tribute" page is the text
from my speech at his funeral - so that others may get a closer insight into who Mark was....
in this edition...I've included some further updates on The Rat Patrol's development and a video.
