...who were an Austin dealer but distributors for Morris/Riley/Wolseley/MG. Peppers had a separate Morris dealership. Beautiful building and a lesson in preservation. 8-)

Top thread idea!

How long before forum members go on group runs to populate the forecourts in period style?

2 nice old garages in Edinburgh are now wine merchants, one of which seems very nicely preserved, down to retaining the origional 'Garage' lettering on the facade. Of course, it would make a great classic dealership

will try to take some snaps next time I'm passing.

Not very pretty, & a rubbish picture, but this is where I work now, when it was a garage back in the 1950's.
