Mechanic working on old car in South Shields

The Mechanic

A picture of a craftsman at work.

Taken at Stan’s Autos in Commercial Road, South Shields, as he lovingly tends a very old red Austin, kept by the same owner for many years. We all have a favourite member of the family who we think should go on for ever – don’t we?

  3. Yes the old girl should be looked after, as there aren’t that many left. I can’t imaging in 40 years time people will be keeping Vauxhall Vectras etc alive, as modern cars have no style or soul.
