Johnny (The Vicar) Croxson

Tribute 2011.

Johnny Croxson was an infamous rallyist from the 1960s whose exploits are legendary.

Where was the Vicar's tattoo?

How he ran the girls home.

I, like so many others, was saddened by the news of Johnny's passing. He was a great character. He enlivened all of the rallies that he attended with his wit and humour, not to mention his fire breathing act.

He was at the Woodpecker Rally way back in the late '60's (my first rally) and I spoke to him at the 40th Captain Cook rally a couple of years back so he must have been rallying close on to 50 years!

Like so many others of the rally scene who are no longer with us he will be missed by all that knew him. He was truly a legend in his own lifetime.
