Clank-Clang-Rill sets the rhythm as father and son grunt and breath sweat and grease  beneath the dusty beams of this third  generation garage. Here metric wrenches, oil viscosity, and patience in the practice were passed on; family heirlooms never undervalued.

Yes, the mixture of sweat and grease - I definitely can smell this. My dad was an auto mechanic, and (unfortunately) after he died we sold his wrenches!

As the daughter of a mechanic.. I adore this in my spouse, and was always fascinated by my father's tools.

Here the precision of your diction created a synesthetic experience, I could hear and smell the workshop. Lots of power in a small package!

"lots of power in a small package," at 5'2", I'd like to adopt this as my personal motto.

My Dad and brothers "played" with cars in the barn. Dusty beams there for sure!:)
