Sad news here - I'm sure they're not the only ones, but I always liked this livery.

Very sad but only one of many to come, I suspect.

Sad to hear of the demise of Alexcars , when out and about in that part of the world , we would always call in. I recall 2{?} preserved coaches tucked away at the back of the garage.
I recall one visit when we encountered "Mr Cars" himself who happy to let us have a look around , but only after he had taken all our names and addresses and seen some relevant i/d. :o Quite a task as I reckon there were at least 8 of us . . . . . . . :lol: Am I correct in saying there was a Bristol Omnibus garage a little further down the road ??

Just shows how serious the situation is, I am afraid. I hear Sea View Coaches of Poole have also collapsed. I fear there will be more to come and the knock on effects on other businesses are likely to have quite an impact too.
