  1. It was fascinating to hear D Randy talk about himself and I learned a few things about him. I have known Randy for some years and he was kind enough to publish three of my stories in Vintage Motorsport a few years back. One thing I learned was the history of Basil. I knew Randy owned a Morris Minor van, but I didn’t know that he had owned it before and found it again on his return to California. Great interview and great to hear from my old friend D Randy Riggs.
