I have to chuckle when I hear Port Maquarie because my young niece can't pronounce Port Macquarie properly!
Wow, Who knew Port had "scientific instruments" for tune ups back then.

I believe this is Porter's Garage in Port Macquarie. I think it was in the main street.
Bruce Porter had two garages.
My mate bought the business at North Haven when Bruce Porter retired. David did his appenticeship with Bruce in the North Haven workshop and now owns the garage and workshop. He is just about the only bloke around here who knows how to fix anything made before 1980. He is as old as me. I don't know what we are going to do when he retires, I wouldn't trust the other mechanics around here to change an air filter.
I might print the pic off and ask him about the garage on Monday.

Old is good.

I know what you mean about mechanics. Most stuff is straight forward on an old holden but tuning a rochester carb? Yep, i'll leave that to someone who knows what they are doing. Not too many left with that knowledge

I spoke to mate today.
He said this garage was on the corner of Clarence St and Murray St in Port Macquarie. It was about 150m east of where the Glasshouse is today. It was sold to Bob Todd and traded as Todd Holden for many years.
There was another Porter's garage in Wauchope.
The Wauchope and Port Macquarie garages were owned by the same person. This person, although a Porter, was not related to or assosicated in any way with Bruce Porter who owned the garage in North Haven.
