Okay, now are you ready for the next Juicy tale? If not, here goes anyway! This one from Paul Leyhew who lived in Milton. Paul began coming over to Bunt's Garage and on one of those occasions, he noticed mechanic Juicy working under a car. Juicy would call out "9/16th please" as persons walked around the car. He continued this until finally someone obliged and handed him the requested wrench. Evidently this was his mode of operation as Paul never saw him come out from under the car to get the wrench himself.
