Wow, I just accidentally came across this thread! My Dad worked for Manchester Garages August 1969... he has worked for Ford for 50 Years this August. Some of the names people have mentioned on here ring a bell to me.

Is anybody still on here?

Manchester Garages were still operating at least up to 1985, but have now closed down and been redeveloped into Whitworth Park flats which now stand on their site.
I got my first permanent job post-Uni and needed to buy a car. I went in there hoping to buy a bargain but couldn't afford their prices. One of the salesmen ended up selling me his wife's car as a private sale (he hadn't told his wife about it either!)
