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,
