Inaugural meeting

With the Enigma crew in Manchester for the Manchester Classic Car show, the opportunity was take for a get together on the Saturday night and a very pleasant meal was enjoyed – eventually!
Present were Martin and Karen (taking the picture) Williamson, Malcolm and Jenny Badger and Mike and Karen Bennett. By the end of the weekend, the company had two reasons to celebrate – the passing of the IVA test for the first of the V8 Enigmas and an order placed at the show on the Sunday.

Involuntary Crash Test

Kevin Roots, who as owener of Healy Cars USA is the distributor for the Enigma in the USA and Canada, had the misfortune of a head-on crash when a woman drove into his car at speed.

This made rather a mess of Kevin’s nice new left hand drive Enigma but the good news for us is that Kevin is alright and the Enigma stood up to the impact extremely well.

The suspension on one side took the worst of it requiring the sourcing of some new components but the chassis is still perfectly straight.

With a new front body section sent out from the factory, the car should be back on the road and doing the round of shows pretty soon.
