It has been revealed in recent EU cost comparison analysis that a mechanic inNewmills has the second most expensive per hourly rate in Europe, coming behind only a Ferrari garage in Rome.

Sammy ‘Wolfetone’ Dunlop has brushed aside any criticism of high prices laid at his door, blaming “local pressures” on his hugely excessive prices.
 
He told Tyrone Tribulations
 
“Luck-see, there’s a rake of reasons why we need till charge like we do. First you have the dippers about this time of year. They love a bit of overtime in the long evenings. Sure ’cause of the manoeuvres taken to avoid the dippers, we see all sorts through the gates here; new gear boxes, new engines, not to mention fuel filters!  That wee Lithuanian lad has been changing one an hour this last week- haven’t ye Dmitri?.”
 
Dunlop has been fixing cars in the area for over thirty years and has defended his pricing saying that people still come to him for business despite his £99 emergency fee, just for calling between Monday and Friday. His continuing business success is partly thought to be because other mechanics in the area have five-week waiting times, so it’s either ‘Wolfetone’s or walk’, as they say around Newmills.
 
‘Wolfetone’ went on:
 
“Yous boys come here talking about me being dear an all that – sure you just have till look at the bonfires, and the tyres that get used up there, hi. Sure coming up to the twelfth and between now and Halloween you couldn’t keep a tyre about the place for love nor… well, just for love.”
 
When asked about the raffle for the signed Eddie Irvine T-shirt and race balaclava set which has been running in his shop since 1996, some 18 years ago, Dunlop declined to comment.

“since our apparitions, the part of us which appears, are so momentary compared with the other, the unseen part of us, which spreads wide, the unseen might survive, be recovered somehow attached to this person or that, or even haunting certain places, after death. Perhaps - perhaps.”
