From webers to web, Kim has it covered

publication date: Jul 1, 2013


Highly respected Western Group member and classics connoisseur Kim Henson has launched his own website.

After years of writing for a variety of heritage titles as well as regular newspapers and magazines, Kim has created Wheels-Alive! 

It covers the classic car scene but there is more than a bobble-hatted nod to modern motor cars as well with an extensive list of first drive impressions as well as a library of road tests.

There are also special pieces on selected  profiles with useful buying advice,  details of forthcoming events, tips, book reviews and contributions from Tom Scanlan and former group member, Chris Adamson, and the site has been created with the help of designer Kevin Slater.  

Kim had dedicated the site to his grandfather, Len Hamlin and late father Ron Henson, who helped him in his career of writing about cars through their encouragement and belief.
