Our House In Our Road
I applied for a job there selling cars back in the 70`s and found out it was on commission only job, told them where to place the job. It was a woman in charge, but I`m damned if I can remember any names. A mate worked there in about 1972 but I cant remember his name either. He used to drive a different car home everynight, lucky sod. He lived in Gorsedale Road If I remember rightly, big family.. I`ll have a good look again for the name of the dealers later today.

Don't you mean 'Apperleys' ?
