Letter to our members

My best friend Geoff and my self worked at C & E Motors from 1970 until it closed in 1983 and between us we like to think we know every nut, bolt, and screw on all the Bedford models running around at that time purely because that's all we worked on for 13 years for 50/60 hours a week! so if you have any members who worked there we would love to re-kindle old friendships.

Best regards

Gareth Prewett

The old "Top Shop" C & E Motors, Coventry.

they could drive to the field loaded and spread the lime onto the field.
