Please Don't Pamper the Land Rover

I was over on the ROVERS site today and learned that a fellow member Bill Simone passed away from cancer. He was an active Land Rover member in the community, a talented photographer and entrepreneur, and so I googled him to see if I may have come across him at some point at one of the LR events. In doing so, I came across this old article in the New York Times from 2005 - article may be old to some, but was new to me - it covers MAR from that year - and I thought some may enjoy it. Bill is in the sandglow '73 Series III in the small group shot.

I think this was from the same year

Bill was one of the best. He bought a 5 car garage in his hometown strictly for club members to bring their Rovers and work on them. He also had a cabin in Northern PA and regularly invited club members to come up and camp and offroad at his place.

He will truly be missed.
