Hi Surf
pm sent
Turvey's was my closest friend Andrew Turvey father's Garage

He is in Montreal at the moment, having watched his son and my ex-team F3 driver Oliver Turvey, competing in Formula E at the weekend
I would like to buy the badge for him as a gift

The picture of Turvey's garage looks just like the BMC dealer that used to be on Blossom Street North in York.

It's now a Premier Inn

Do you know where in York the Alfa dealer used to be? Going back 20 years now, bought a cheap high mileage 155 there.

Going back 40 years Alwyn Kershaw was an Alfa dealer in York. His garage was somewhere on the road past the Railway Museum.

Both my father and father in law had Alfasuds from him in the seventies.

alwyn kershaws garage is on the road to Stamford bridge, he used to have a rolling road, but that vanished a long time ago.

I'm not sure if he is still even running it.

Anyone know who would have been the BMC or Morris dealership in Carlisle in 1963?

Not the answer you want, but nostalgic just the same for me Mini Minor. I was a 15 year old engineering apprentice living at Hadrians Camp in Carlisle starting in January 1963. You can just imagine what it was like...... that bad winter and me, one of the few Southerners who'\d had a sheltered life at boarding school and all that palaver. There for 3 years (we used to call it tears)........... Happy days - or daze
