Shimmins Garage 14-19 Queens Promenade, after the numbers of two TT winners in the twenties who garaged there one year. That became the official postal address. They were the agent for Triumph and had brand new Heralds, Spitfires, Vitesses and 2000's, the Herald based fibre glass car, the Bond Equipe and also new Reliant Schimitars. Sold to Tours (IOM) Ltd November 1972.
