RIP - turbo3l - Colin Fender

I'm hoping this isn't true, but I've had multiple people confirm it for me....

Colin Fender aka turbo3l on these forums was unfortunately killed on Saturday while at work at Naval Base.

RIP mate. Knew you for a lot of years from when you were about 17 at ATTC in Freo. You didn't believe me that I had an original Calais Turbo manual and you swore they never made them in manual!

You were a good young bloke taken way to early. RIP mate.

I just recieved a call from the West Australian newspaper. They are intending to run an article on Colin and his life and love of cars.

I didn't know him that well, but if anyone did and would like to help, drop me a PM and I will pass on the details of the person at the West.

Thanks

Callum aka Tunzbig is probably the best for that as he and Colin were really close I'll try send him a message later on.

So heavy, RIP.

Colin always had something to do with VL's and CT. Maybe a cruise to commemorate Colin, later on could be an idea?

i saw something on facebook come up on his profile yesterday and thought it was a joke and ignored it, i later went back to look and it was true!

i cant believe its happened, he was a good bloke into wheeling and dealing and helping fellow enthusiests out with their pride and joy

bought and sold many bits and pieces to each other and been to his workplace numerous time whilst he was on nightshift n every time made me peel out in a cloud of smoke!

great bloke and will be sadly missed, i just cant believe its happened to be honest just when he was setting his life up so well! =(

RIP BUDDY

Great idea... I have spoken to N3VA3H on the phone today and he suggested something similar. Will work it out over the next few weeks or so once everyone has had a chance to deal with this as best they can.
