Ivan Butterworth passed away last week. An early member of the FCA in the 1970s he was one of the original customers of W.H. Lowe and Company when he bought 250 GT/E #4801 new in 1961. He had some stunning cars (I'll post a list sometime) and continued his love of cars right throughout his life. Apart from Ferrari he was also a Lamborghini, Lotus and Mercedes-Benz owner. He ran Collingwood Brake and Tyre in Hoddle Street Collingwood for many years. He was still changing tyres well into his late 80s. I asked him a few years ago how he did it, he replied, "You're only as old as the woman you feel." Like so many of his time, he was a larger than life character and was always willing to share a ribald tale and joke. To say he was a ladies man is quite an understatement. Perhaps some of his stories will appear He was 92. R.I.P. you old devil!
