its very sad news that chris patterson also known as crimmer96 has passed away from a heart attack last weekend.
chris was a nice lad who came to the nationals last year in his green rocco and ended up buying a red gti from another member there and joined the rest of the rabble camping on the night and we had a great laugh with Eve Moran who i think is now taking over the cars to restore them, as its what he would have wanted.
hopefully she will pop up on the register soon.
its very sad news indeed as chris was only 21.
my thoughts go out to him and his nearest and dearest.

RIP chris

I dont mind project cars but I HATE SANDING!!!

Had the privaledge of giving Chris and Eve a lift from their digs in Wolverhampton back to the campsite so they could have a bevvy or three in Black Shuck, thoroughly nice couple and such sad news of his passing. Rip young man.
