Brian stood thoughtfully in the garage doorway. He had been standing there for some time now. His Jaguar E Type sat sadly under a protective tarpaulin. He had put such care and effort into restoring that car. Years of work had gone into it, rebuilding the engine with help from an old friend who had been a mechanic. Restoring the leather seats with his eldest son. Replacing and fixing damaged panelling. He had spent many precious hours recreating the beauty of this car in its heyday.
Brian had bought the car in a terrible state, but with his hard work, it had become a thing of beauty. A real vintage classic. He had enjoyed some great Sunday afternoons in it, nipping along windy country lanes. The thing with his car, thought Brian, was that it is not about money. He knew that he would not get back what he had put into it, but he had experienced so much fun with it.
Which all made it so frustrating now. Something was wrong in the engine, and he couldn’t work it out. Everything looked okay, but something was not right. And so, the car sat in the garage, under the tarpaulin. ‘I’m sure I will find the time to have a look at the engine again at some point,’ he muttered to himself as he shut the garage door, leaving his vintage vehicle in the dark.
Brian is fictitious and so is his car, but there are many real owners of vintage cars, the majority of who have spent large amounts of time or money, or both, in keeping their vintage vehicle running. But all too often, vintage cars develop faults and wind up in a garage or driveway, with the intention that ‘someday’ it will be fixed.
