Warehouse Wednesday: Garage with roller

Pat Heard Garage Services

This is England.

A slightly scruffy garage that looks like it's been around for years, with a 1974 Rolls-Royce parked outside. Different roof lines, peeling paint, but generally pretty tidy, the garage is still in use - it looks like the sort of place I like to have cars repaired thanks to a dislike of main dealers (I'm looking at you Citroen and Peugeot) who do a poor job and charge a fortune. 

I could also imagine it appearing, looking just like this in a 70s episode of The Sweeny, Minder or The Professionals

Although this garage is beside  a filling station, it could be a useful lineside feature. The roller is a nice touch, available for around £7000 nowadays, they are a bit of a "people's car". I always used to think that you were rich is you owned one of these and an electric toothbrush. The toothbrush won't cost you two grand a corner if the gassy suspension fails though...
