If he was passionate about the subject, then I probably picked up on his "odd-ness" and misinterpreted it as him being dispassionate. But he was obviously not so passionate about the Railton Mobil Special, specifically, because otherwise he wouldn't have been selling its original drawings!
But I guess from what you're saying, Steve, he wanted to raise the funds to advance another speed-record-related project, so I've probably done the chap a slight disservice.
Certainly, it must have been the same guy I was speaking to - judging by your post, "Pullman99". It was around 1993 that I had my telephone conversation, so that's that one solved.
So presumably he still has those drawings?
If so, it's good to know they are in a known, safe place - in case anyone ever needs access to them.
