Rootes Archive Centre Trust

The Steve Yates Library

Bob Allan and Jacqui Yates

Abstract:

It was a shock when Steve Yates died in early 2017. He had been a fantastic supporter of the Rootes Archive Centre and had Rootes cars in his blood having been the spares officer for the Hillman Owners' Club and owning several Imps and Avengers. His knowledge of 1970s Rootes parts was second to none, supported by his vast reference library with many catalogues from suppliers such as Lucas, Girling, Lockheed, AE, Payen, etc.

We are very grateful to Jacqui Yates for saving this collection which can now be accessed via the Rootes Archive Centre.
