The Jalopy Journal
I feel your pain. This was supposed to be built last October. City, county and state permits...and I live in the middle of nowhere!
Progress on the new garage was slowed a bit, waiting on building supplies. Everything is buttoned up now. Still waiting on the garage doors....
Yes, sunny and HUMID here in the Midwest. More progress on the garage. The roof is on and complete. The door is on, so I can lock up the place...
Upstairs is where the roadster pickup project is currently living. Downstairs is the tractor and implements, the mower and the Cushman cart....
Old space was 30x30. Managed to cram 4 cars, 3 scooters, took boxes, and all the rest of the garage junk in there.
This is the view to the East, from the same spot. The barn on the right is the current garage, that I am vacating and the wife is claiming it....
Here’s a little perspective for y’all. These pictures were taken pretty much right outside the back door of the house, looking to the west. The...

I was supposed to be building this last October, but ran into winter trying to get all the permits lined up. What a pain.
Agreed on the doors. Have 3 16’ doors across the front, plus a man door on the front as well.
Well, the garage is 24x70...and it probably is too small already. I already had them increase the size of the apron while they were setting the...
Yes to all the questions. Amish built pole barn style. Have a stack of lumber and some pre-built trusses waiting. Out of that, they will craft...
[ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH] Well, yesterday was a big day here on the farm. Finally got the slab poured and finished for the new garage....
Still have it. June 1983. Sophomore in high school. Crazy about ‘57 Chevies. More interested in them than the hotrods on the cover at the...
Just tell people that you put a Nascar chassis underneath it. :-)
Make sure you rinse all the covids off before you install them. Can’t be too careful.
Look closely, there’s some New Zealand plates and some Western Australia plates too.
I did a bit of horse trading for those plates. I also have an Irish plate that isn’t hung up yet.
Just brought this big bruiser of a sign home. It’s like 3 feet tall, and super heavy STEEL.
Hey Gene, I think I know where that hub cover came from. :-)
Glad you put it to good use.
You mean like this?
OR IT COULD BE A CUSHMAN!
For the second time.
