IM WRITING to let your readers know that Rob Burns car enthusiast extraordinaire, panel van aficionado, and outright petrolhead passed away on 28 April.

Rob, from Tumut in NSW, was a founding member of the Majestic Vanners club and online forum, and lived and breathed both panel vans and performance vehicles.

He had been a contributor to SM over the years and was also inordinately proud of the times the mag featured his van. As his mate and a relative via my marriage to his cousin we were happy to share his delight in the association with your magazine over the years.

The motoring scene will sorely miss him and be much poorer without his presence.
