"We've seen some major changes in that time, starting with the computer revolution and moving on through to advanced electronic wizardry for engine diagnostics," Graham says. "I never thought I'd see the day, but I'd probably spend an hour or so on the inter net, re searching infor m ation, checking for parts and investigating new techniques." The Jackman s team (from left) Carole, Christian, Graham, Frank and Phil, specialise in brake and clutch work and offer an extensive maintenance and repair ser vice for all makes and models. Marshalls Auto Repair 737 West Tamar Hwy, Legana Phone 6330 1808 When you turn off the West Tamar Highway at the Marshalls Auto Repair sign just south of Legana, it feels more like the approach to a vineyard restaurant than the road to an automotive mechanic's business premises. Trees line the driveway and all around the wider area are the neat rows of vines along the Tamar Valley Wine Route. But at the top of the hill, with sweeping views over the river, there's the garage where Rod Marshall plies his trade. "We can handle a cross section of mechanical and auto-electrical work," Rod says. "Maintenance of diesel engines, especially the newer systems that are found in an increasing number of new cars, is a specialty." Marshalls Auto Repair has a fully- equipped mobile van to provide on-site ser vice, while the workshop has the latest in engine diagnostic equipment; essential tools for working on moder n vehicles, when all major mechanical system s are governed by electronics. Rod is also an R ACT Roadside contractor, with after-hours call-outs a feature of his ser vice. 35 April / May 10
