Re: Newcastle Haymarket 1960s... First car driven after test
That Wyvern was a handful to drive. The clutch peddle being very long travel. It never bothered him as he was 6’ 3” me 5’ 9”
Anyway he used his car quite a lot at weekends taking Mum to Town and going to football matches.
As I was courting my future wife, we had met at Xmas 1959. Started to walk out in about the March / April of 1960.
Maybe he was looking out for me. Bet he just wanted his car to himself.
