Jaguar car in Horsham Road, Handcross

This view of Horsham Road, Handcross has changed little except for today’s increased number of cars on the road, and those parked on the western side of the road beyond the entrance to Truggers. To assist the traffic flow a mini roundabout has since been added at the end of the slip road on the left.
The star of the picture is undoubtedly the Jaguar Mark 2, which, including the re-labelled 240 and 340, was produced between 1959 and 1969 with a total production of just over 91,000. The registration plate is JM 24, but surely the most famous Mk II Jaguar is the 1960 burgundy model numbered 248 RPA belonging the Inspector Morse.
I wonder if anyone can recognise the two men chatting at the entrance to Truggers. A close up of them and the Jaguar is available on Large Version.
