Bob's Bob Halliday's Garage
A few years ago Bob Halliday contacted me because he knew I was a nostalgia nut, sort of.
Bob owns Bob's Garage, a shop/museum that restores old stuff to look like like new. He restores old cars, gasoline pumps, Coke machines, signs, you name it is located off Shallowford Road, near Horsetown.
Although I was intrigued, I wasn't sure I could do much for him. I passed the buck the Marietta Museum of History.
I once read that when Bob was a kid his folks ran the Georgian Oaks Motel across from Dobbins on the 4-Lane. That is where he learned to repair vending machines and signs, which was his calling.
Speaking of the Georgian Oaks Motel I have another facebook friend who had a girlfriend, or co-worker, I forgot which, that intentionally set the Georgian Oaks Motel on fire and destroyed it. Small World.
I see there is an article in te latest GEM GEORGIA MAGAZINE (March 2017). For a link to the article
