Kinky Mick

Post by rikki james » Fri Nov 22, 2019 8:07 pm

I have just received some very sad news, my good friend Kinky Mick passed away this morning. I don't have any more details at the moment but I wanted to let you all know as Mick was a trully awesome guy! You'll probably remember him for his trade stand at all the big VW events selling super cool wheels and dubious saucy strikers! Mick was one of the good guys and a real charactor in every way. I and anyone that knew him will miss him immensely. God bless you my friend.

I’m guessing it was sudden? Been following his build on instagram of the turkis westy. Sad news and a big name in the vw scene lost.

Looks like one of the old school air-cooled guys has left us. Had many chats over the years

Sad to hear about Big Mike, probably met him over time but can't put a name to a face, none of us get younger that's for sure, so enjoy life, your friends and family and try to live every day like it's your last....
