You aren't quite right with some of the guys above, but they are still around, except for cruiser. He's at the gates waiting for some mates to come up.
The wyre forest crew were a splinter group from the MWSMs after they had been going for a few years. Shame really as the clubs together amoounted to quite a few cars. But most of us were kids back then, so quality rods were never there. Perhaps some of the ex members could post some history up.

Craig.
I must know of you, as I know everybody you know.
In the very early days I was driving a yellow minor, willy's front, tunnelled lights etc. Then I went to one of my favorite rides, three No. mark 1 rover V8 escorts.
Did you go with Jez on the Street Machine shoot out at Bruntingthorpe? If you did my other good mate Graham Tibbs went along to help Jez.
If you are posting any pictures of Stourport, it will be good to see them.

Craig you were right, I've spoken to Jez.
The gassers did actually get it together, but it was formed after the break up of the Street Prowlers from Stourbridge meets. Those were the days again! (were is Plumbers Mate?) This was before the Riverside Rod and custom club, from the Black country been formed (or at the same time).
I can see this been slightly wrong.
Anybody else want to contribute?

Hi,
Does anyone have more photos of this Humber in this earlier version. It's a Super Snipe and is now the mad 6 wheeler.
Cheers, Bob.
