Halsey Auto Repair

Description

Albert Halsey (right) in his workshop, in the 1930s.

An imposing concrete building with a fountain at its entrance.

A humble vintage car restoration business, now derelict, but still decorated with scratched and blood-smeared antique road signs and period motorcar advertisements.

A titillating calendar hangs in a corner, but only the Miss December page remains.

History

Halsey's was the first and only car workshop to operate in Stanbury Village. Opening in 1929, it catered exclusively for what were to become classic and vintage cars - many of which were owned and run by Stanbury's affluent aristocrats. While other venerable repair shops in Malton ended up dealing with bland Fords, Vauxhalls and Fiats, Albert Halsey spent his entire career with the marques he had loved as a boy: Aston Martins, Austin Healeys, Morgans: even the occasional Lagonda. A regular customer was Lord Wymbourne, with his Austin Mayfair.

Halsey was a taciturn but honest man, and even the arrival of Nichols Mall on his doorstep did not affect or interrupt his business. However, being a strong and silent type did not help Halsey much when, in his 80th year (and still working!), he found his usual polite clientèle replaced by an undignified mob of flesh-eating zombies. As one zombie gnawed on his skinny leg, and another attempted to crush his skull with a rubber mallet, Halsey is believed to have made the laconic comment, "Mondeo man is here."

Halsey's was SOPPAGE HQ during the Siege of Halsey in late June 2007.
