The plane on the wall was on a garage on Yarm Lane.

Anyone else old enough remember when Oxbridge Garage was on BOTH sides of Oxbridge Lane (new Ford Sale on side oppo cemmy) and some time in the 70s they had a display of Ford F1 gubbins including a Cosworth Engine? Please tell me it's not my age enfeebled brane telling me porkies!

oldsmoggie Posted on 20/08/2010 19:38
Oxbridge garage RIP

I said that in an earlier post but was shot down.
I think it was a move from one side to the other though dont think they had both at once did they?

markofdboro Posted on 20/08/2010 19:46
Oxbridge garage RIP

it's is a customer of mine building a new site with an all in one cafe petrol station and car showroom

Muttley Posted on 20/08/2010 20:11
Oxbridge garage RIP

I'm pretty sure that at one time they had both sides, the cemetery side always had the petrol station bit, the other side was new car sales with second hand car sales in the compound on the other side of Eton Road. New car sales moved up to Motor City after Jennings bought it I think?
