My Old Man’s Garage

Recommended Posts

Was summoned by my Mum this weekend to start sorting through my Dad’s various sheds and garages. The poor chap has bad Parkinson’s Disease and is not able to do much for himself anymore. 
He’s had some amazing cars in his lifetime - Rolls Phantom 1, Invicta 3L Low Chassis, Maserati Sebring, Aston DB Mk3 and numerous E Types, Healeys etc. Sadly, these are long gone, less the trusty MGC...

Anyway, thought you might enjoy a few pics of some of the other treasure that I unearthed. Don’t really know where to start with it all, but have just placed a sandblaster and 2 welders in the For Sale section. 
And do get in touch if you desperately need any classic lawnmowers...

Nice to see shelves sagging with things "that will come in useful". Always sad to watch someone you love not able to do the things they love - to have a lathe in the garage implies a serious 'tinkler'

My first ride on a motorbike was a bantam!

Hi Sam 

Could well be interested in the Honda mower. How much were you thinking of for it?

Kind regards

The lawnmowers should sell very well on eBay. You would not believe the interest in older lawnmowers.

Hi Sam 

Could well be interested in the ATCO lawnmower.

Is it a 30inch cutting blade? How much are you thinking?

Potentially interested in the Suffolk Punch. Mine, also ex my Father's, became US before last season and I really need a good cylinder mower to keep the grass looking smart.

NJP - I think I want to keep 1 x cylinder mower and that’ll be the Suffolk Punch. Have just seen a nice reconditioned one one eBay for £400 - quite expensive!

But many thanks for your interest.

What's the motorbike?

 

Nothing special - we have a couple of old Bantams which are fun for charging around on.
