Dateline 2035. Amazingly on a road in Warminster one of the old garages has survived all the upheavals of the last few years. It is believed that this is the last remaining garage in southern England.
The Garage Preservation Society has been formed by a small group of car anoraks, former boy racers who used to use the garage thirty years ago to buy crisps, fags and petrol.
Their aim is to buy the site and restore the garage to its original late twentieth century condition. One of the members has an old car and intends to haul it to the garage by horse to display outside. The shop will be reopened selling non-organic pre-packed food, watery lager, stale crisps and old fashioned newspapers including 'Take a Break', 'Weekly Soap', 'Chav World' and 'Wahey, Tits Bums Fannies and Burn Ups for the Lads'.
