Workshop to raceway, Bill reflects on his love of cars
FOR almost three decades, Bill Storer has rolled up his sleeves and got his hands dirty to make sure locals can keep moving.
As a self-employed mechanic at his highlyregarded Browning St business, Mr Storer has fixed and serviced everything from a well-worn Commodore to a high-end race car.
More at home under the bonnet than in front of a camera, he took some time away from the workshop to talk to the Portland Observer about his love of cars.
“I’ve been a mechanic for 29 years now, with 24 of those years as my own boss in Portland,” Mr Storer said.
“My dad (Graham Storer) was a self-taught mechanic, who fixed large machinery such as forklifts and the like.
“Funnily enough, he didn’t want me to become a mechanic, but obviously I did.”
