Many years ago, I built up my road car, a 1972 Toyota Corolla into a rather potent rally car, using it also as my daily transport (before marriage, children, etc)
Hi Martin, thanks for reaching out to me! It's indeed a small world with our last name; I can only assume we're related froms somewhere back in the Plistocene era!
Seriously, my grandparents on my father's side came to the US from Germany back in the 20's; my father was born in Brooklyn, NY while my mother was an English 'war bride'. Both are deceased. My immediate family consists of a wife - no children - so I guess the 'bloodline' runs out at our end.
It's nice to know I have a 'namesake' from down-under!
