It is the saddest of news to learn of the passing of JR.

I purchased my 1965 Monza 140HP Convertible from JR some years back. I had
been intending to travel from my home in England to Chicago to view the car
and satisfy myself apropos its "goodness" ... but it became quickly
apparent that JR was a totally honest, straightforward man to deal with.  I
realised that I could absolutely trust JR concerning every aspect of the
vehicle's description, and decided that there as absolutely no point in
making the journey to Chicago.  I had no qualms whatever in sending him the
cash for the car without seeing it first. It proved to be precisely as he
had described it, with the addition of a few little extras as a surprise
for me.

At all times, JR was a true gentleman to deal with. I never had the chance
to meet with him, which is my great loss, but as I type this mail I am
looking at the car sitting on my driveway, so far from its home in Chicago;
now painted in its original Blue Mist. Immediately upon learning of his
passing, I went out and laid hands on the car that he always referred to as
"our Corvair". I have told the car of his passing. God bless a true
gentleman, and my sincere condolences to his family and friends. Later,
indeed, JR.
