Dear All.
Just wondering if anyone knew if there was a problem at John Whalleys garage?
Have been trying to get through for 3 weeks and now number is disconnected.
I thought they may be closed for holidays but hope it's not something worse than that...

Yes I had heard he closed up (retired?) recently too.  Also does he still have a Stratos?

Yes, I'd read he'd retired - not sure where everything has gone though and I can find the thread on evoforum. Not that long ago - few months maybe.

I knew he was only going in twice a week but the staff carried on, where did you read this?

Thanks for that Colin I have re joined the evocorner forum which I have not looked at for years and saw the post, I am more than a little angry and disappointed he did not let me know as I was a customer for over 25 years and recommended him as he was good and honest.
I think that the fact most owners now use their car at best on special occasions, meant that his regular service work went down and he wanted to take a more less active role there. It is another garage in the area which has now disappeared,  hardly any left now.
I personally have had some good times there and with John in Italy and his knowledge and general view will be missed for sure.

It was always interesting to talk to John when taking my car in and I had the pleasure of getting a lift with him in his integrale back to the train station on one occasion.  He certainly didn't spare the horses!

When they closed I received a text message from them thanking me for my business in the past.  Bishops Stortford was a bit of a trek for me but I did feel that my car was in good hands.
