Myles Murphy anyone know his fate

Many years ago a gentleman by the above name was active in the Land Rover circles, he did a bunch of artwork for Rovers North you might recall.

From memory he came from the Maine area but had an overseas past like myself.

he evaporated off the face of the earth all of a sudden.

Anyone know where he went or have contact coords for him?

Thanks

He's floating the Camden, Maine area every so often. No other info, sorry.

I lost touch with him and always wondered where he ended up, actually had some time for him. Was trying to re connect.

We are going back many many years... so hope this is accurate.
Miles was active in the British Invasion car show that was later sponsored by ECR.
We spoke by telephone many times.
He would call and ask about importing this or that or asking advice on a repair job.
Miles was an interesting character and world traveler to say the least.
Lot of stories of being in Africa and seeing people in a land rover hitting a land mine or something like that.
Tried to get him to come to VA back when I was active in ROAV to attend a MAR, but he never traveled down for the event.

Robert,

you memories are like mine, from many years ago.

I am slowly trying to re enter the LR world.

Have been a long time OVLR type.

If anyone sees him tell him I asked after him.

Now that's a blast from the past. I met him at an Atlantic British rally. It was 89-91 not sure as to the year. Nice guy with great stories.

Hi Robin.

Oh yeah, I remember Myles. Dixon has been in touch with him. Also there is a member here purporting to be him. Alas it may be another looney from Maine.
