Hi Folks

Thank you Gary for your words on Ken's passing. As you folk might know I bought Ken's Corvair about a year ago as they were planning to move to the UK. I only met Ken three times, but we spoke a lot on the phone and via e-mail.

Sadly we will miss Ken and his version of matters, Ken saw things in a different light to others and was an individual who was not easily swayed by others or things around him. The last two to three years of Ken's life were not comfortable years and Gary and I both knew he was in a lot of pain and discomfort.

As mentioned I bought Ken's Corvair which used to belong to Gary, Gary brought the car in to SA from the then Rhodesia now called Zimbabwe. I have asked Gary to write up the history of the car. The intention is to post all this information and all the technical info that goes with the very unique Big Bore that Gary built for me, which now resides in the back of Ken's car. I would like to enter the car into the Car of the Month contest as a Tribute to Ken.

Rest in Peace my Friend :wave:
I am the happiest man my wife approves of and supports ALL 5 of my Corv-affairs, now try and beat that!
