Old Rover dealer - Original mechanics

#1 Post by Scrumpy » Fri Oct 11, 2013 10:17 pm

Shires Garage at Langport was a Rover dealer and garage site for many years. Had my Rover MOT'd there last year and the same mechanics have been there for years from when it was a Rover specialist, one with over 35 years experience. They even still wear the old Rover crimson overalls!

When I took my Mk 1 along they remarked it was years since they last done one, so they were considerate and set my mind at rest. In what was the showroom area, there are old pictures on the wall of decades past showing the garage, when it was Rover/Austin/Morris back in the day with old-style pumps and attendant. Good old fashioned service and they know a Rover inside out.
