As an agricultural mechanic myself who spent years trying to mend balers and ploughs on the icy Black Fens of East Anglia while up to my neck in mud..it was pure delight to finally meet a kindred spirit!
Well not exactly a kindred spirit in that Louie Panayiotou would not be mad enough to do what I did in my misspent youth! But like myself he has a great love and passion for engines!
Louie has been enjoying mechanics since he was 12 years old. His cousin has his own workshop in Crayford and that is where Louie excels..jacking up cars, servicing and taking out engines! He enjoys doing diagnostics and is determined to have his own garage and pass it through his family.
The thing that strikes one about Louie is his deep love for all of his family..every one! Family means a lot for Louie. He talks very fondly of his Uncle George with his Porsche 911 Targa and enjoys weightlifting with cousin Nick! He was particularly proud of completing three 50 Kg squats last week!
Louie has a natural feel for engines and mechanics and his enthusiasm is palpable! He personally would like a Porsche 924 Turbo and feels that is within his reach! He really enjoys what he calls real work and already be part of the real world!
There is no doubt at all in my mind that Louie will be successful and one day run a first class garage that puts the customer first and hopefully will be servicing my little Skoda........with a small discount of course!!
