Let's See Your Garage / Workshop !!!

Post up some photos of your workshop / garage / barn or wherever you do your wrenching!

Being an old fart, this was my 3rd attempt over the years of building a shop.

This one has an insulated work shop one the left, and storage on the right.

I added the 2 post lift a few years after I did the building, and the four post I added when I bought my '65 so I could store it under my trailer.

Notice the hinged worktop that folds down for extra space.

These pictures are from a couple years ago... not quite so sanitary looking now.

Re: Let's See Your Garage / Workshop !!!

This is my current shop I built behind my house. I wanted to include an RV bay, but the
city limited the shape and height of my roofline, so I ended up redrawing the plans for a 12x20 office space.
This is several years old when I just finished the shop...

...finished sheetrock and overhead lighting then finished roof and stucco to match the house...


...where there's a fuel altered and the '63 C-10 are usually scattered about.

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

...it adds about 300 hp, enough to spin the blower over until the methanol lights off.

Re: Let's See Your Garage / Workshop !!!

This is the dump I do most of my dirty work in. There is also my garage here at the house but it is full of cars and trucks and parts.

I broke my addiction to Miata's. Me and the wfe have thought about selling the last one a 1992 Sunburst yellow. I repainted it and put new carpet in. Still needs a top.

Re: Let's See Your Garage / Workshop !!!

Here's my man cave.

These pics are when I first moved in 3 years ago. Now I can't hardly move. I can't believe how much stuff has accumilated in 3 years. Not too mention my truck, Shannon's and Ronnie's cab. The last pic was where I came from. We all gotta start somewhere.
