Vic was a lorry driver and along with his pal Jeff Bateman, nicknamed “Fangio” for some unexplained reason, was one of the first customers of the renamed and altered Jim's Cafe, taking advantage of its proximity to the newly-opened lorry park on Canal Street.

Along with Jeff, Vic joined in with the chatting up of the women but with considerably less style. When waitress Gail Tilsley asked for Jeff’s order he told her that it was to be waiting outside The Flying Horse that night for him and Vic, with no tact whatsoever, told her to bring a blond with her for him but with a bit more on her than Gail had!
