Acespeed Toys

By LynneJoyce  
I needed my car's air con and a wheel bearing fixing (all part of a nightmare series of disasters that has prevented me being able to keep up with EPZ) so I went to my trusted local garage, Shipley MOT. I have been using said garage for 20+ years and know the owner, Andy, pretty well. His garage has the rare-as-rocking-horse-droppings advantage of being an entirely non sexist establishment. Women drivers on this site will understand.

Andy likes my photos and will always let me take pictures of some of the wonderful vehicles he has there. Here are some of the scenes there when I went back (with a camera of course) to collect my car. They start and finish with a montage, show Andy Ace Harrison's Formula Junior racing car being prepared for its appearance at the Formula Junior Celebration Race at Brands hatch, his vehicle carriers and his delightful racing mini.

I feel honoured that he still finds time too look after my old A class. Many thanks to Andy Harrison and his guys at Shipley MOT centre for fixing my car again and for allowing me to photograph such delightful machines.

Don't know the first thing about cars and what's under the bonnet - do recognise first class work though.
Super and interesting Lynne.

Wonderful collection not only the pictures but also in the garage.
You have the ability to see a photo opportunity everywhere you go. I wish I was as gifted.

A fascinating set Lynne. I think I like the first of your version images - the composition makes it look like an alert, waiting predator
