  • Further to my ramblings down memory lane... I once worked for Bramber Engineering (who might still make boat trailers?), as an office boy, then a delivery driver/salesman and later ran the Midlands branch. We dealt in leaf-springs primarily for the trucking business. In those days, lorries had multi-leaf springs and they would shatter on a regular basis, we would do a service exchange for the desperate haulage companies, whose income depended upon a fast delivery service. Our factory was in the Welsh valleys, in the southern part of Wales. Old mining country (who recalls the Aberfan Disaster?). We would get a lunchtime delivery/collection service from our Tonypandy factory and often we'd have to take the bigger loads of broken springs there ourselves (we supplied WMPTE, wumptie, West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive... those dark blue and cream buses that served Birmingham and its surrounds). So, long story short. On one such drop-off, I went into a local pub for a bite of dinner and half a Mild . Outside, half covered by tarpaulin, was a Ferrari Daytona, I kid you not. The real thing. All old, dusty and worn looking, but nevertheless, there. It would be mine for £1,200 if I wanted it. It belonged to the publican who couldn't be bothered to keep it on the road... just another old sports car, like all those rusting E-types nobody wanted. Well, the money was well outside my ability to buy it in those days, so there it stayed. I'm only guessing, but even back then, a breakers yard would have hung onto a Ferrari and not squashed it, so It's probably gracing Pebble Beach or some such place these days. I, on the other hand, am gracing my sofa with a 'nice cup of tea' and memories of what could have been if only...
