    image.jpg So much paint, so little time! I took a different approach and painted a mural on the back wall. It's a work in progress. The door leads to a 12x24 workshop that's well insulated and heated for small projects. A side wall will become the front of Mahoney's Irish Pub. Hope to have that completed by spring.

    What happens to me is. Every time I order parts on line, I’m always about 20-25 dollars short for free shipping. So why not throw a sign to your order. It’s like it is free sign!

    Being retired with limited funds........my money goes into my Hot Rods......so, unless I find it or it is given to me........no funds go into garage decorations.

  4. In my other garage I used to have a bunch of photos pinned up but it's so damn humid they would curl up unless you pinned all for corners. Now I have a drawer full of 'em.

  5. I've paid very little for most of that crap, I don't consider myself a collector, just a guy who likes to grab neat junk when I get a good opportunity. Dirty, rusty, bent I don't care as long as I like it. In the main part of the garage I did not want shelves or cabinets to take up my limited space. So you can see that almost everything is pretty much flat to the wall and firmly attached so I can't knock it off. I actually like all the "paraphernalia" almost as much as the cars any more.
     
  6. I like the taxidermy! I've got an antelope (dated 1968) and a $5 squirrel in my other garage.

    Just
    Make sure you don't have any roadrunners or coyotes running through there.

    Her idea.
    Good place to drink beer and shoot the bull with my car buds.
    No chairs allowed in the work garage.

    That is cool!!! I may paint that on the wall, with your permission. I visited Mahoney's Pub in Kilkenny last year. Old family name. They bought me a pint!

    This past summer while the '58 was in the paint shop I decided to give the garage a makeover. About the only decorations I have up are some MSRA Back to the 50's commemorative tin signs and a few old road signs. 37890707_1752788864758587_7893246645540749312_n.jpg 38462397_1764273030276837_8373432531923501056_n.jpg IMG_3076.JPG

    Nope. Everything I get for shop art I sell to guys wanting shop art.
    Somehow they always want it more than me $ ;)

  23. My place is badly cluttered and looks like shit... but I like it that way. My NEXT garage will be bigger and possibly spiffed up a tad.
