This looks like a 'post mortem'going on .......but where is the rest of it Oz?

The garage is at Kings Road Ashton, a couple hundred yards north of the Arnold Clarke showroom. At the time it was owned by Barry Greenall. Now JP Trucks.

Back in the mid 60's an elderly gentleman who had just taken delivery of one of these, 50 miles on the clock, got in it and drove it straight into the back of my father's Morris Oxford, from a 10 yard standing start! Wrote it off, hardly a scratch on my dad's car. Never got in one again.

The best thing ever to come out of Tamworth was the A5.

Derick they turn over quite easy without going fast. This looks like a Robin.
