This car reminded me of a friend of mine called Peter. When we were in our early twenties.Hence, we both worked at the same tyre company in a town called Dewsbury . Thus, in the North of England. We both had different types of cars on and off.For this reason, my favourite was my Triumph Spitfire. As expected, was a white colour. But Pete bought a splendid blue Triumph Stag.

Unfortunately, after about three weeks. Peter blew up the Stags engine. “Peter was in tears”.However, after a few phone calls (non-internet in those days).Of course, he found a garage in Leeds who could repair the engine at a reasonable price. In those days, we received a bonus for each car tyre that we fitted. So the new engine took some saving up for.

Pete had to get the car to Leeds, so we borrowed a trailer from a friend that owned Plant hire business and buy all of his car tyres from us. We loaded the car onto the flat trailer and headed for Leeds. The A62 was very quiet that Saturday morning but unbeknown to Peter the pin connecting the trailer to the tyre van came out and the Stag and trailer went crashing into a nearby field and was duly written off, what a horror story, one I will never forget, certainly Pete won’t.

Peter is now the owner of a successful car tyre outlet in Huddersfield but we still have a laugh about the incident.
