Our thoughts are with Margaret.

That is very sad news. Mary & I always had a good chin wag with Bill & Margaret whenever we met up at shows. He will be missed.

Very sad to hear.

Bill was a really nice chap and I enjoyed spending time with him at the NEC show on numerous occasions when we both displayed our cars. His cars live on - testament to his restoration skills.
