He lives up Newcastle way so it will probably be a locally made Nissan.

As well as making cars Nissan also make a hut.

Nissan is famous for being the only car manufacturer who made cars that were so crap that they had to change the company name to Nissan in order to remarket their new improved range. Previously they were Datsun.

Datsun - now that should go in the Sheffield Dialect thread, it means "That is a...."

As in "Datsun other fine mess youv'e gotten me into Stanley" (From a Sheffield subtitled version of Laurel & Hardy)

Maybe a "Rolls Canardley" (Rolls down hill, can hardly get up the other side) or a Ford Pubic (Made out of old Corsairs!) he he

The Motorists Prayer

"The Ford is my motor, I shall not want - another -

It maketh me lie down in wet places,

It soileth my soul; it leadeth me into

the paths of ridicule for its name's sake

Yea, though I run down the valleys, I am towed up the hills,

I fear much evil while it is with me.

Its rods and its cranks discomfort me.

It annointeth my face with oil, its tanks runneth over.

Surely to goodness the bleeding thing won't follow me all the days of my life

Or I shall dwell in the house of the insane for ever."

It's not a Fix It Again Tomorrow either; it's green, that's all that matters. It's no 1965 E-type Jag with wire-wheels either, sorry Mom ...

....Datsun's were first sold in Sheffield in the early 70's by the infamous Derek Cook (D.C.Cook) from his site at Sheaf Gardens - which made him a millionaire ;-)

So the clue is its a GREEN car.

By this do you mean that its colour is green or that its a low emmission eco friendly car which is rewarded with zero road tax.

Colour is green; not very environmentally friendly at all. 2002 vintage, diesel.

I learnt to drive at Jack Clare's in 1965 in a Vauxhall Viva, cost 19 shillings a lesson. Thanks for the link to Youtube Jack Clare School of Motoring, it had me laughing. I also worked at Photofiniishers at Nether Edge, which belonged to Mottershaw's, in the school summer holidays, printing and packing photographs. So some good memories from all of this.

"The ballgown was particularly difficult to find to fit a 19 stone, 49-inch chest balding fat blokie"
