Top definition
The anti-chequebook approach to the restoration and modification of old cars, in particular classic Fords. Budget, DIY home-grown fabrication and dedication as opposed to ready-made parts. In the shed, not off the shelf.
Person 1: “Did you buy that jolly fine manifold off the shelf?”

Person 2: “Shelf? I made the shelf... My car’s built not bought, mate.”

Person 1: “You the man.”
