Yes it is a 3w and it went to South Carolina.
From the outside. UK ones are built to take smart cars, or so it seems
Whats that grey bike?
Wishbone style frame with flathead,looks like UL to me?
Good eye Antti.It is a 38 U in a bowleg pan frame.I have had it for a lot of years.
now that's a messy garage!
That's how mine was before I got a shed and tossed out a lot of crap. There is hope.
When I moved to Vermont I ended up buying a house with no garage at all (the previous owners converted it into a family room). I'm thinking about building a lean-to off the garden shed large enough to shelter parts and work near in good weather.
Nice, big, dry basement, though. Too bad there are no Bilco Doors.
<-----That's how my place was. I ripped out the wall to the basement bedroom and had a garage door put back in. A small 1 car garage is better than no garage.
I once knew a service station owner of German/Russian origin who pronounced garage as "harage"! I ended up in later years working for his son - a very good mechanic.
this is realy....impressiv...
My OCD just made my eye twitch because of this...haha...
Mine was something like that before i got the pallet shelfs.
The 1st pic was when I brought the 66 home from Mom and Dads house.
The 2nd and 3rd are where we are at on it now.
Eventually I will get the "Dream Shop" built but not within the next year or 2. I will have been married 25 years in march and my wife has never parked one of her vehicles in one of our garages.
Same here,interestingly enough I don't have any of these 32's anymore. HRP
My garage is about 15x25. I actually use its size to justify not buying more stuff. Any more and ill never get anything done. I guess hot rodders are like gold fish, we keep growing to suit our environment.
never big enough, my first was a 12x16 tarp,then 30x30 shop, then 30x100, not big enough so now have 66x100,full, cant get anything more in it[ anyone want a pool table?]
They are always too small. There is always something that can take up the space.
This is where my garage is at right now. I just built a frame table that attaches to the lift for space saving.
I also have my '54 at the shop, because there are more tools there, and I don't have the room. I remember when I did the suspension on the '54 years ago in this garage, I had to put it in the garage sideways, because the garage is too small for it to fit in straight.
My Grampa said, Marry a small woman, they tend to get big, and build a big garage they tend to get small..
.....Never seen one too big!
I built my car and a large part of my buddy's roadster in this garage.
Before the Comet I built a Cobra replica in a one car garage while I was living in a condo. It was on an alley so there was no driveway. Luckily I had good neighbors. There were also some boxes of parts behind the couch in the living room. All that stuff you see besides the tires fit in that garage. I did finally get a house which is the last picture.
My little 1.5 car. It houses two model a's one In a million peices a hudson a harley 15 bicycles my tools a new front clip for my c10 a sbc and flathead on stands and who knows what else but when I pull the hudson out I have a semi decent work space. I really need to build a shed.
My shop.....I've got multiple projects I want to get done on all cars this winter so I decided to put them all down at the shop.
The touring is on a pallet ready for the new owner. That will free up some valuable space!
What I did on Christmas vacation. I cleaned out 20 years of junk and sold off the motorcycles so I could squeeze my '29 RPU inside. No more temporary storage in the back yard. It is perfect by no means, but once the truck is rolled out, I can have a couple of beers with the guys and wrench in the driveway.
A friends garage. Under the pile is a '65 Corvette convert and a '50 Merc convert.
Been sitting 40 years and counting.
Its a good thing your tires aren't any wider. LOL
clipped this from a picture HRP scanned from an old magazine
me and my first "ground up" hot rod and the humble shed I built it in,
dirt floor and all
I've got one of those "two stall" garages that's really a stall-and-a-half... going to get a Home Depot tin shed to move the kid's bikes, the mower, the garden tools, and a little sheet metal out to make room to work again !!!
