AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

To suffer?

These rather weathered signs appear at Tyabb on the Mornington Peninsula.
They amused me, suggesting a tension of choice between wrecking or repairing your car.
Not sure that having both extreme options in the one place assures me that quality work will be done. Perhaps only for one option.

That is the question
To wreck or not to be wrecked
To suffer or not

Something about that 'advanced motor repairs' makes me think that was an afterthought!

Nice find. I have had my cars repaired with used parts before. They are cheaper and just as good as new.

What a funny combination.

At first I thought it was pretty clever, but now I am thinking I would not use them for repairs to any car no matter its age. Unique to say th least. genie
