Steve Moran of Westside Motors started repairing and restoring air-cooled VW's in the mid 1980's Operating from a small row of workshops behind The Broadway in Woodford Green Essex. Westside Motors have over the years displayed various VW's across the UK show circuit including The Volksworld show held at Sandown Park. The most memorable VW being the 1956 Strato Silver Blue Beetle Cabrio which was featured in the October 94 issues of Volksworld and VW Motoring simultaneously and went on to win best in class at both Stamford Hall and VW Action the following year. Westside Motors were also commissioned by Budweiser to prepare 7 VW Split Screen Camper Vans as prizes to be given away in a spectacular promotional campaign by the Beer Company and Virgin Radio. Chris Evans the DJ at the time held the competition on his daytime radio show and presented the winners with their prizes. With the demand changing from air-cooled to water-cooled Steve Moran decided after many years to go with the flow by employing technicians with the knowledge and the experience needed for the repair and understanding of the modern day water-cooled VW while still carrying out repairs and servicing to the classic Volkswagen. Expansion was the next step. A larger workshop was found just a short distance from the original workshops up on the High Road in Woodford Green where an MOT station and 2 new ramps were installed at the beginning of November 2001.Although things have moved on since the early days Steve Moran and the Westside team are still as enthusiastic about VW's today as they were back in the 1980's.
