One of the most respected most trusted Z trader in the UK Z world. He will be sadly missed by us all. RIP Mike and our condolences to your family and close friends.

Sad news indeed...I first met Mike in the early 80s and attended his house regularly after the Halfway House Z meetings. RIP Mike

Very sad news indeed - Mike was a long-standing member of the Z/ZX community. He was one of the best traders, on here and over on Z-club; always helpful and reliable.

RIP Mike - we'll all miss you sir......:classic_sad:

I have something to say............ It's better to burn out than to fade away..... :tt2:

RIP Mike. Always a gent and a mine of knowledge. He helped me and all of my Zs over 25 years. A big loss to the Z community. Condolences to his friends and family - and cat. I understand the ZClub is planning some form of memorial after they've heard from the family.

You will be missed Mike.... I used to enjoy popping over for a chat and to see how full your lounge was with Z parts... 

It doesn't seem like 19 years ago I first met him, when I bought my Z..... That was when he was in his old house with a very large outbuilding full of parts to rummage through....

As everyone that knows him has already said, He was a true Gent, helpful, patient and always welcoming!

R.I.P. Mike....


Watching my Z disintegrate on my driveway!!!

Blimey this is the first time ive been back for about 3 years and first story i click on is Mikes death.I knew him and Ken Chelton RIP back in the day when South East Z club held meetings at the halfway house. i got my first 280zx which Ken modded with bits from Mike.Then i had a 280zx 2 seat pile of rust home fitted with a janspeed turbo kit which Mike bought from me.Various 260Zs that Mike provided bits for with his USA contacts and i  remember watching him drag race from the bronze 240z with v8 chevvy to the 280zx with big block.Shit what a great start to coming back into the z fold!!!.He was an unbelievable mind of information on every Z/ZX which i dont think will ever be matched.RIP Fella very probably the biggest Z/ZX fan in the UK....

I RIP Mike! Likewise haven’t been on the forum for a while this was sad news.

Had the pleasure of meeting with Mike on several occasions, always helpful.

A massive loss to the Z world. 
Thoughts go to his family.
