About Us

Just a little bit about who we are and why we formed WASMA.

Mark (Happy) Williams
President                             

I grew up with cars and started learning about how to fix cars from my Dad at a very young age.

I have built plenty of cars and in 2017 I took out Grand Champion at Summernats.

A real passion of mine is building cars from mild to wild.

In 2011, I started Steel Bumpers and now I'm bringing my passion to WASMA. 

Perry Ormsby - Treasurer

Perry Ormsby
Treasurer

As an active member of a few car clubs in Perth, Perry got involved in WASMA to try and make a difference in the local street machine scene.

Running a small international business gives him some experience needed for the role of treasurer.

Currently building a blown HK GTS Monaro, his collection also includes some modern muscle and European sports cars. On his wish list is an XB Coupe, and a '68 Charger.

Steve Thomlinson - Secretary

Steve Thomas
Secretary

I am fitter and machinist by trade have been into cars from a young age.

I have 3 cars all HZ Holdens including a GTS, ute currently under construction and a windowless sandman waiting restoration.

I joined WASMA to be part of making changes for the car community rather than sitting on the sidelines.

Chris Bitmead
Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)

Outside of Chris’s day job, Chris is a motoring enthusiast whose passion for building and modifying cars as a hobby dates back to the 1980’s.

Chris believes that Street Machines are an important element in the motoring history of Australia. As chair of the WASMA Technical Advisory Committee, Chris has a desire to foster collaborative working relationships between government, industry and enthusiasts to ensure that there is a balanced approach to regulatory matters associated with Street Machines that will allow the hobby and the many businesses that rely on the hobby for their livelihood, to foster and grow.
