Is It a Garage, Home, Or Heaven?

By Yoav Gilad / 31 Jul 2014 / 8 Comments Read More

Mark and Haven gave us a brief tour, explaining that it is their home. There was actually a loft built in the unit where their bedrooms are and when friends visit, the travel-trailer serves as a guest room.

Rather, the shop floor serves as living room and the focus is clearly on building things that provide interactive entertainment.

When Paul first opened up his garage, the majority of the cars in his possession were Jaguars and later, Lotus competition cars. Just three years later business was booming and he had taken over four other buildings on the street. There was, for a time in the 1960s, one of the original Ferrari P4s sitting in the window of the same building, staring out the same windows that BMW’s now occupy.

Everything here is fabricated with respect to the original part, assembly, and technique. Even if the staff uses, when exceptional precision is needed, the most advanced methods and tools, preference is given to traditional craft skills. The men who work here more strongly resemble artisans than mechanics. It is the attention to details and the direct experience that make this place different from a common restoration garage.

In real estate, location is everything, and surely there’s none better than a centuries-old castle among vineyards outside of Modena, Italy.

When an American is dropped into a foreign country, there are only so many things he can do to ensure his survival. He can try to blend in like a native or he can soak in his surroundings and create his own subculture hand-crafted custom bike creations. This is exactly what Clutch Custom Motorcycles owner, Willie Knoll, did, and since then he’s been fabricating two-wheeled sculptures that could be pulled off the stone streets of Paris and into the Louvre.

Dear Garage, I can still remember when we first met. I was immediately taken with your friendly demeanor and oil smell. We hit it off immediately, and you seemed like the answer to all my prayers. We’ve had some good times since then, you and I. The oil changes, the carburetor tuning, and who could forget the custom exhaust? But it’s a been a long time since then. Things have changed.
