Welcome Dave my namesake, I am Dave Harrison worked in Spurrier works for around 20 years the 60s to 80s then Leylands went bottom-up took redundancy and started a Driving School after training using the redundancy money which wasn`t much for 20 years, luckily the school took off and I ended up employing instructors and specialised in disabled tuition, retired aged 66 and retired to the lovely island of Crete on doctors orders and am still living there 15 years later hence my nickname Dave the Greek on web sites.

Wellcome Dave.

I am one of the few who didn't work at the Motors my conection is with social club, I was taking drumming lessons with the then resident drummer Eric Willis. He invited me to the club on Saterday nights and would let me take over from him for a couple of numbers while he refilled his pint pot. I also joined the Motors 2nd hockey team all in the early 60s.
