Ron Tonkin's health - improving! FORZA Tonkini
 
Ron "Tonkini" Tonkin is the owner of the world's oldest Ferrari dealership, Ron Tonkin Gran Tourismo and has been hospitalized since Dec 17, 2009 with health complications. He has recently improved and entered recovery. Ron & Marcy support and attend many Ferrari functions and charities so this is very good news.

Prayers & warm wishes for a healthy recovery.

My wishes and thoughts go out to him, his family and want only the best for him: Truly he is well known in the community

Didn't know this Kurt and concerned with you. I knew Ron has had issues the last couple of years but not happy to hear about the hospitalization. Keep us up to date on any news.

Great idea, first time I've seen that site. Signed the guest book, I remember Ron emailing me when Forza doing an article a few years back one of his cars. Good guy to correspond with.

I first met Ron in Modena, Italy in September 1986 at the Hotel Fini's Ferrari Store. He had just bought a yellow scarf for Marcy and they were returning it to exchange for a red one.

Here is a video of Ron on one of my Ferrari club trips, where we got him to stand up and tell us a story on how he obtained the last Ferrari 288GTO produced.

It is a great site.

I have two persons currently on that site, for updates on them along with donation info.
