Hello I'm new to the forum so apologies in advance if I get this message wrong! I am trying to contact a Mr George Hilditch who ran a scrap metal dealership in Coventry in the 1950s (and beyond). The reason I am trying to get hold of him, or a relative, is that I currently own a car he once owned. My car is a Jaguar XK120 registration PCR379 and Mr Hilditch purchased it from Mike Salmon (the racing driver) in 1956/1957. I am trying to research my car's history and the one big gap I have is its time in Coventry with Mr Hilditch. I know it's a long shot but if anyone has his contact details or any relevant information I would be very grateful! Many thanks James

Yes you have the right bloke here, I worked for George for nearly 40 years. I am not sure if he will want me to give contact details but I will ask him next time we speak. I don't remember seeing the car, it was before my time with him but I know he used to own a Jag. I hope this is of some help, James.

Dear NormK Many thanks for your reply and for offering to speak to George - it would be great to talk to him if he is happy. I can share some more recent history of the car and provide up to date photos of it if he would be interested. Many thanks again, James P.S. Have left you a message in your inbox too (with my contact details) as I've had problems posting this response!

Welcome to the forum George! Wave It's really nice to see a resolution like this. Maybe you and James can let us know how everything goes? Cheers
