Mike Sherrell sent me some photos of his book launch in Perth which was held on 7th May.
According to Mike, the weather was absolutely perfect; a cloudless blue sky, no wind, 29 deg.C and this was 3 weeks before winter!
He recalled Noel Semmens telling the audience when opening the book launch of TCs Forever! back in January 1991…. “Of course, we all know God drives a TC”. Well, thought Mike, someone must have been smiling down for this second book launch!
His eldest son Dan pulled everything together and with his partner Julie, and his sisters Jess and Em, ran the event like clockwork. There was champagne on arrival and food aplenty. Master of Ceremonies was TC Owners Club President, Colin Dines with Barry Palmer, Speaker. Both did Mike proud. His reply followed.
Mike was moved to see seven of his old restorations out front and his own two inside. Reflecting on his work over the years he said…..”Doing one at a time year in year out, they all become a bit of a blur, but to see so many together even I am amazed. I need to get a life!”
Mike looking rather pleased in the company of those “wonderful touring time machines”.
A formidable collection of (mostly) TCs at the launch.
