    i remember cresta cars as i worked for them around 1980 till they merged with dg and moved to nottingham road at basford .i then went with the four guys who set up A2B taxis (nev huckerby,james corbett,norman shaw and dave ?) .Originally they worked from the Notts Hospice but later to the units at the side of Catchems and then on to Bar Lane-I left in 1985.My call sigm was Lima .Now living in Evesham i look at this and other sides and it makes me sad that all the pubs seen to have gone -no such thing in them days of sat navs -just ask the customer where was the nearest pub was to his house.It was mad at times -no speed cameras just maurauding police cars -no spped bumps either so late night speeding was common.The guy who owned cresta chose me and a lad(John) from Hucknall to do the cars for his daughters wedding at the Park Taven.Think he moved to Gunthorpe
