"Keith Adams recalls Sir Michael Edwardes, the chairman and chief executive of British Leyland’s turbulent ride at the top of the company. It might have been a rough ride for the unlikely South African car boss, but he almost managed to turn around company in the most trying of circumstances."

I read of this yesterday and was rather saddened on hearing of his passing.


He seemed like a well liked fella who was able to equally talk to the guy on the production floor as well as those in management.


If one person could be held in esteem for keeping BL / AR afloat during the late 70's / and in to the 80's it would have to be Michael Edwards.


I think the world is a lesser place for his passing.
