Bill's farewell to motor trade sums up difficulties

Larger than life, always in good form, Bill Cullen has defied the odds for 55 years in the motor industry, writes Eddie Cunningham.

It is a measure of the man. Equally it is a measure of just how severe the economic downturn has impacted on the motoring industry that he has to bid farewell to it. For now at least.

Don't write him off but this is a bitter blow to him. It will hurt. It will also send more shivers through the industry. Bill's book 'Penny Apples' charts his fortunes through an extraordinary life. Sadly, a new chapter awaits.
