Parked Cars

We've all probably heard the famous song 'You Can't fit Quicker Than A Kwik Fit Fitter' and thought what is all that about? Well, today, Paul Spanner, 23, a mechanic from Toolbridge in Derbyshire has ripped up the record books.

Kwik Fit are famous for having loads of dancing mechanics, who always fit spares and mend cars whilst singing and making everyone smile. It's a policy that has worked very well for years, and made the owner, Nigel Kwikfit, an awful lot of money.

Paul, who works for a small independent company 'We Think We Are As Good As Kwik Fit' told reporters 'I had a feeling I had it in me to go pretty close and challenge them. The record for changing a set of spark plugs was just under 4 minutes. Well, in training I regularly do it in 3 minutes 30, so I knew I had a chance.

It isn't easy with Doris McShirter, the world record adjudicator, breathing over you but I knew I had a chance. The Lads here gave me great support and I'm made up. I've taken 12 seconds off the record. That'll stand for some time that now. '

Owner of WTWAAGAKF', Colin Spring, 57, said about Paul's achievement,

'The lad just oozes quality. He's a real star turn and one for the future. '
