Cavaliers and Capris

Memory Lane: Marehay Garage.
Memory Lane: Marehay Garage.

THOSE were the days – when cars used to cost around £1,000.

We have found out another picture from our archives from Marehay Garage in Marehay. This time you can read the prices on the array of second-hand cars at the venue. Vauxhall Cavaliers were selling for £1,195, old Ford Escorts went for £995 and there were even Ford Capris on the forecourt.

This picture was taken in the early 1980s – when nearly new cars cost a lot less then they do today.

The clock on the right of picture is no longer there.
