Default Greyhound Classic Car Bilston road wolverhampton

Has anyone ever been to Greyhound classic cars on the Bilston Road Wolverhampton and seen all the lovely Rover 75's standing out side there building. Just wondered if the garage owner is a member or just a collector. They do classic car hire for weddings and events.

Hi Derek.
We know of them at the Nano meets, as we found out that the owner got a few friends to slowly bring his cars to the Nano to get them health checked on the T4, have options changed etc left right away to go & get another this went on for a while until they got found out, had no intentions of helping out anyone else just out for gain on their own behalf.

Basically he was using the Nano for fault finding sometimes getting the car sorted so he could sell it on, also he had a captive audience to try and sell the cars too

Always wondered what that place was myself.

That behaviour is so not nice! I have always been of the opinion that Rover and MG owners and enthusiasts have lots of natural class. Obviously there are exceptions. Fortunately very few in my experience.
