05/08/2018 Jim McManus . .

The 'M' in WSM passed away on Sunday. Jim joined Douglas in 1963 when they opened the Healey Centre in Swiss Cottage. The expansion of the Leighton Buzzard-based business heralded a busy time for the duo, and within a couple of years they outgrew the London site and relocated all WSM construction back to Bedfordshire. A popular figure at Rockingham in 2001 and subsequent WSM re-unions and gatherings with wife Peggy, he will be missed. The funeral takes place at 2.30pm on Friday 17th August at St Nicholas Church, Cranleigh, Surrey.

27/01/2018 Cairns Calling . .

The power of the internet ! A previous owner of WSM 205 got in touch from Australia, having left Kent in the early 1970's for Cairns. He recently unearthed pictures of 205 which prompted a trawl on the net for the car he owned between 1967-69. Stephen Porter competed in hill climbs and sprints, and had a Twin Cam MGA at the same time. He lived in Goudhurst, which happens to be a mile or two from the school AW-S attended at the same time . .
