Various Inspirations: Abingdon Spares ^

When I visited the firm, Gerry Goguen showed me his range of supplies and spare parts; this included a trip upstairs to see the large parts storage area. I asked Gerry how had he gotten into the business. He said when younger he had been a trumpeter with the Boston Symphony. Racing his old MG in a vintage car race at Lime Rock, he went into a sharp corner too fast and flipped the car. In that accident, he so damaged his hand that he could no longer play the trumpet, so he needed a new line of work and built a business to support his “hobby.”
