DE­LIGHTED

Unique Cars - - AUCTION ACTION -

I’m writ­ing to ex­press my de­light and grat­i­tude.

My brother Scott is the proud owner of the beau­ti­ful Mus­tang that adorned the cover, and graced the pages in the fea­ture ar­ti­cle of your leg­en­dar y magazine (#410).

More im­por­tantly to us though, was the fact that our much loved Dad, Ross (and our dear Mum, Marlene too) fea­tured in sev­eral of the pho­tos. We lost Dad on 27 Oc­to­ber 2017, af­ter a short, but tena­cious fight against ill­ness. His f ight was glad­i­a­to­ria l, and wor­thy of him be­ing on the cover as the pin up boy! Watch­ing him deal with his ill­ness, with such re­solve, strength and calm­ness was tru­ely in­spi­ra­tiona l.

See­ing him so promi­nently in the magazine, af­ter sev­eral months had passed since the photo shoot and his sub­se­quent pass­ing, and know­ing how much he en­joyed the day, has given our fam­ily a great lift. Dad would have been so thrilled to have seen the re­sult­ing ar­ti­cle, but it wasn’t to be.

My chil­dren, Hunter and Fletcher adored him, and they love our reg­u­lar, but al­ways spe­cial, Sun­day drives in their un­cle Scott y’s ’Stang. So the look on their faces when they saw the pho­tos in

Unique Cars was price­less, and some­thing I’ll never for­get.

I’ve no doubt that this piece of mem­o­ra­bilia will be­come a fam­ily heir­loom, not just for our im­me­di­ate fam­ily, but for our whole ex­tended fam­ily and friends too, who have all pur­chased copies. Dad was the sec­ond youngest of 17 chil­dren, so you may need a sec­ond print run!

Thank you Glenn Torrens for your words, and Mark Bean for your in­cred­i­ble pho­tos. As in­nocu­ous as the day would likely have been to you at the time, I want you to know that you have touched our fam­ily in a way that is dif­fi­cult to de­scribe and cre­ated mem­o­ries that will live for­ever.

Thank you again and re­gards,

Brett Thomas Email
