A New Expert Mechanic on the Loire Valley Time Travel Team

We are fortunate to have a new expert mechanic on our classic car maintenance team, and Célestine and Claudette are very happy. Dominique worked for more than forty years for the marvellous Dufresne, home to the most amazing collection of mostly mechanical and historical objects in the Loire Valley. Now he's retired he takes on clients or projects that he likes. He's a friend of Bernard, one of our relief drivers, and so we were lucky enough to engage him when Claudette needed her brake drums skimmed. He also discovered she needed new drive shaft bolts and dealt with that. So we are very happy too.
