A sad day. Many years ago Peter gave a talk on starter motors at a club meeting, I turned up expecting to be bored rigid, 2 hours later I was hooked. What a fascinating lecture and a truly interesting clever man. Thank you Peter

I never met Peter but I had an electrical problem some years back and was told I could get his number off his website.

I called him up and said I used the SSVC website and that he was the man to talk to regarding electrics.

He didn't know me from Adam but still had time and talked me through the issue I had - think it was a starter issue - 20 mins of his knowledge was gratefully received.

What a top bloke.

I hope you and yours are well Peter.

Wow Peter, early retirement? We're not ready for that yet :-) I hope he's enjoying his well deserved rest and hope he still makes it to a show or two. A gentleman through and through and makes the others look like they only know how to take credit card numbers.
Thanks for all your very valuable time and extreme patience, and not making us feel as though we were just another sale SHAAAATIIIIIING

So get yer slippers on, cup of tea and sit in front of Mr Selfridge this Sunday :-). Enjoy, and hope to see you again :flower: Don't be a stranger :wink:
