A MECHANIC from an AutoCare garage, Garej Wyn in Crymych, has been awarded the title of Wales’ most photogenic car repairer, and won £3,000 and a modelling contract. Ffasiwn Mecanic featured a national search to find a mechanic who had the potential to renovate the image of the car maintenance industry in Wales.
Emrys Wilson, 23, was crowned winner of S4C’s mechanics and modelling competition, Ffasiwn Mecanic. In addition to his cash prize, Emrys will model for world-wide clothing brand Dickies; he will be the face of Aston Martin, Vantage car magazine and appear in JD Classic’s car showroom in Mayfair, London.
Emrys says he intends to use his prize money to buy new car equipment but that he has no plans at the moment to venture into the modelling world.
