This article in my series about Triumph car dealers features Birmingham dealer Spot Garage. The company Spot Garage (Northfield) Limited started 17 August 1954, the photo above is dated 11 September 1964 and the company is no more having been dissolved.

For many years after the Spot Garage business stopped the site continued to be used for the sale of used cars. A hand car wash business started on the site opposite Hawkesley Mill Lane in April 2009.


When the site was being used by JMA Auto's to sell used cars another business called Northfield Garage used the workshops. Northfield Garage were an independent Jaguar specialist.

As it looks today 18th May 2017 - with several car repairers and parts dealers all around the back in countless old workshops

As of May 1975 Spot Garage (Northfield) Limited were listed Rover and Triumph car dealers.
