That's terrible...

I've been collecting literature myself semi-seriously since I was a wee 
lad and I'm now 35. I got a few things about ten years ago from the US, 
including a 2000 brochure extolling the virtues of its safety, a couple 
of  3 Litre items that were (bizarrely) shaped and decorated like Easter 
eggs, a couple of brochures for the (much Rovernet discussed) NADA 3500S 
showing the boot (okay... trunk) full of melons and the SD1 with round 
headlights and the (unusual for the rest of us) three spoke steering wheel.

Does anyone know the name of the guy whose literature was stolen? I may 
know of him or be able to let a  few other enthusiasts here know about 
it as I used to run the Motor Museum of WA, from 1995 to 1998 and the 
local scene is quite incestuous (sp?) as we are probably the most 
isolated city in the world!

I'd like to be able to help!
