Default Tam (Axo) - RIP

For those who don't know, Tam passed away earlier this week. I personally didn't know him very well, i just spoke to him on the phone a couple of times, but his car was a huge inspiration and one of the reasons i got back in to AX's.

For those who don't know him, the following clip says it all, i must have watched it a hundred times:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xe_q4uAcYqY

AXOC will be sending a wreath/flowers. I haven't seen any threads about it on here so i just thought i'd let people know if they want to send something.

RIP

WOW, cant believe that, spoke a few times and bought quite a few things off the guy, very knowledgable. Used to watch his ax vids on you tube quite often, that thing was insane

Very sad, as I said on FB & Ssc - the guy was a pleasure to speak to, always willing to help out.

RIP

Tam was a one of my best mates he was an adrenalin junkie. He loved speed and drove everything he owned to the limit and beyond and back again

Hel be remembered in these circles for building axo he loved the little car, but he was a bike man at heart purely because they could do 200mph

His legacy lives on as the last engine he built is in my charged 106

I was massively into my Celica GT4 but it was costing me a fortune. My first car was a citroen AX so i looked them up and came across Tams clips - an old shed of an AX seeing off some pretty exotic machinery with ease! had me sold and i've been into them ever since. Definately a turning point for my car interests, so for that i'm hugely grateful and was sorry to hear the news.
