On the road in the 1960s
READING in the Bugle (I buy two every week) about Guy Motors – in the 1960s I drove lorries for a haulage company, Coopers Road Services, Holyhead Road, Wednesbury.
We had a good many Guy Warriors, Invincibles and Big Js. For a while I drove an Invincible (PBF77D) – the engine in the cab was very noisy.
Other makes of British vehicles we had were Bedford TK, AEC Mandator, Commer four- and sixwheelers, Atkinson, ERF, Leyland Comet and Dodge. Later on we had two Volvo F86s and two Scanias
I went to Guy Motors in Wolverhampton to pick up spare parts a number of times. Reg Cooper sent me to pick up a Commer artic unit from Richardson Transport in Oldbury, run by two brothers. One of them gave me half a crown. Lovely stories in the Bugle. Reg Middleton Short Heath Willenhall
