"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."

One of my heroes without whom Leyland would probably have failed much earlier along with most of the British sub-suppliers. Without those sub-suppliers we may never have seen Nissan, Honda and Toyota enter the UK.
