Luxury.   I wish I had a garage.  It's not fun fettling in the open air.
I remember my days with no garage - filling rot with filler but only on warm dry days - I actually tied a steel block & tackle to a tree branch to remove the engine from my Mini - 1966 happy days!

The tree was the farmers across the road so I was blocking the road off for about 20 minutes but it was a very quiet lane was Tithe Barn Lane Sutton on the Hill now spelt differently to the road signs by Google as Tythe Barn instead.

It was all different back when we were younger compared to the health and safety 21 st century - my uncle 'Ciggy' (Cyril) was a self employed mechanic who for a few years before getting a garage to work out of, used to work from outside the pub at the bottom of the street he and my grew dad up in. The locals used to call him 'Bull' - as he used to strap a rope round his neck to lift engines out of cars!
