It is with sadness that I report the death of John, he was a good friend, generous and giving. I will miss him. :cry:

At about 08.20 yesterday morning he was involved in an accident on the M3 motorway.

RIP John.

Sad news, he was a bit of a master with the XU9J4. Life's a cruel b*****d.

RIP

OMG - only just seen this :shock: :(

I haven't seen John in a while, but am absolutely shocked and devastated to hear of his untimely death. He was a real gentleman with a wonderful dry sense of humour.

Gary - my best wishes and condolences to John's family

Words fail me.

I too have not seen John for sometime, but am shellshocked by this news.

Spent many an hour talking about all sorts of motor vehicles in his upstairs office, he had some fabulous tales about his motoring exploits over the years. A proper genuine enthusiastic bloke and petrolhead, and always had time for a chat or to give some advice.

Condolences to John's family.
