Topics I've Started

Fords at Doncaster

18 February 2009 - 10:27 PM

Being born and bred in doncaster I am always interested in the history of the town.
My next project is Ford Motor Company in Doncaster.
If people can pass on any links in any form I can follow up.
Or have any copies of photos of the Ford factory
Names of people working there
What cars were made there
Where the factory made?
Any material about the influence of Fords in Doncaster

auto or not auto

Has anyone heard anything different.
A friend of mine as told me that the car Im driving is classed in a way that the driver must have passed the driving test in a manual to be able to drive my car legally?
My car a 1.6 tdci 7 speed auto.
He went on to say he had read a piece in the local paper where a garage had been done for selling a car to a driver who had been involved in an accident whilst driving his c max auto? when he was only licensed to drive real autos and the c max is classed as manual.

(Please do not take any of this story as legally binding as it clearly a matter for solicitors and courts etc.)
