 Re: 8-second 1200 for sale
Ron emailed me a few years ago, inviting me to visit his webpage.

That's the first time I'd heard of him. He seemed nice and approachable. He used to take his cars to schools and do inspirational talks to kids with behavioural problems. The whole "David vs Goliath" kind of theme.

He seems like a fair dinkum guy with a big dose of 1200ism. It's a shame that he's selling up.
