I’M 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.
