His real name was Werner, Slim was his nickname. He passed away around 1990 or so. He co-owned Beach with his brother Arnold.
Some of the Beach mechanics from the late 70's are now at other dealerships or run their own places.
Bob White: Maranello
Mike Colangelo: Lakeside Motors
Sandy MacNie: MacNie's Motorworks (originally a partner in Lakeside)
Don Katsumi: Autotrend
Steve Gailits : Bavarian Motors
I've seen some other mechanics from Beach at Toronto BMW.
