Can you not FaceTime the wedding. Might be an idea to go out and see who’s interest and what dates can’t be done and go with majority.

Hi Midlanders,

We've had a bit of an unusual request to the admin email address and I'm wondering if any of you could help.

It's from the friend of an RX8 owner called Carl Junior Newbie, who recently passed away. We've not been able to find a forum id or club membership, but apparently he was in contact with the club or forum in some way. His family has asked if any members would be able to join a funeral procession for him in Birmingham in their cars. They haven't told us when it is, so I'm trying to find out a bit more info, but is anyone familiar with him and is it something anyone would be up for? It might be nice for us to do something for them if we can.

I have the mobile number of his friend Stacey, so if anyone is interested then I can put people in touch

Cheers
Stever
p.s. the name is a little odd, so I'm really hoping it's not a wind up ;)

Is that surname definitely spelt correctly? I have a customer with a very similar name from Birmingham and you've got me worried now :(
Unless I somehow got his surname slightly wrong?

My customer only a Guest account and not a paid up member which would explain not finding his name on the system.

But if someone could reassure me it's not him, I'd appreciate it :(

That's the spelling as sent to the admin email address, but I can't say for certain that it's correct. It appears his car is a Blue 231 on an 05 plate if that's any help? Do you have a forum id for your customer?

Apparently the funeral's on the 20th July

Yeah Blue 05 plate. I'm guessing I've had his surname wrong on Invoices but just never brought it up?

If it's the same Carl then his forum ID is tekkendp.

It would be very upsetting if it's him as he's always been very good to me despite not doing much business with him - messaging me saying Merry Christmas and asking how Glastonbury went etc.

I tried to text him hours ago but no reply, I don't like the look of this :(

That's very sad. If it was Tekkendp then he was fairly active on here. He was last on here on 5th June. I remember his Wesley Snipes avatar very well. His signature is especially poignant now. :(

It would certainly be a great gesture if any Midland members could do something.

Dependent on the date of course then I would go up to join the procession. Rather than have several of us contacting Stacey at this difficult time may I suggest you take the lead stever and organise us participants.

That's very sad to hear.

Any idea when this is?

My car is (still) at Rotary Revs. But if I've got the car back and am free, then quite willing to travel up and give the chap a proper send off.

I've made a note in my diary for Friday 20th.

He wasn't hugely active on the forum but he did enjoy his cars (used to have an Evo) and was very fond of his 8 - last time I spoke with him about a month ago he was considering a RRP bridge build. I fitted a decat for him recently and he left me his old cat to be passed on, another member on here has turned it into a ghetto decat and is now on his car.
He said he wanted to leave feedback on my area of the forum but couldn't post on it since he was a guest - I much appreciated the sentiment though.

A really nice gentle guy, I don't think he was that old either. Certainly seemed young at heart, always smiling and joking when he came over and would shake your hand when arriving/leaving. Like a lot of people who come to see me, they seem to be more of a friend than a customer.

On one occasion I found his MAF O ring to be split, I didn't have a spare on me so his car has my original MAF on it and mine had his original one scotch taped to my intake without any O ring. Another occasional he brought a part to be fitted, only for me to discover that it wouldn't fit as the seller sent the wrong one - similarly, I told him to wait a minute and we ripped mine out of my car and he got me a new one later. Has been a pleasure to serve him :salut: and I'd be happy to be present.

Has just dawned on me that this is the day we head up to Hull on the way out to our European tour. Once we know the timings, if there is anyway we can make it work, myself and Katie will be there.

Ok great. Thanks guys. I'll block it out in my work calendar as well and hopefully will make it.

I'm happy to coordinate with Stacey, so I'll get in touch and find out the specifics
