Johns Motors is just up the road from me. They used to be in Northampton town centre many years ago and were the Reliant dealer for the town.

Good to see Benstead's Cottage garage is still there. Horsell was my neck of the woods growing up.

(Benstead was more my Dad's era with motorbikes at Brooklands pre War, though)

Given the flood level in Rick's link Shipps Garage is appropriately named.
