The disappearing Calwell Mechanic?

By MWF - 14 November 2008 7

I dropped in there to get a quote for a service and it was all closed up and empty.

Does anyone know what the story is?

Have they closed down for good?

“Midas Car Care” wasn’t it?

The auto electrician next door is still trading.

they BETTER of closed down!!!

Last time i went there, about a year and a half ago, to drop my car in for a service, picked it up, and there was a huge dent on the side of the car. Because, they had parked it near the servo (Near the air hose and stuff, for those playing along at home..), and someone had did god knows what to it.

And, they had the hide to say, that it was like that when i got there!

So yes, i’m personally hoping they’ve closed down. I thought i saw them close down and stuff for good on wednesday morning..

wishuwell said :

Nothing quite like a good old fashioned apprentice practical joke.

My favourite is still the no-longer-with-us joinery that would send the apprentice down to Parlourment House to “measure up”.

… and they wonder why no one wants to be a mechanic’s apprentice!

My favourite mechanics suddenly disappeared too. I used to go to Kaos in Belconnen, and they just suddenly shut down. It was such a shame, they had a great website with pictures and footage of modded-up suzukis playing in the mud and rocks.

He’s probably with his supplier getting a long weight.
