I think my Avatar says it all. Greetings from snowy South Jersey.
After losing my great storage arrangement I had for three years, I am in this carriage house for now. Tight squeeze in and out. No room to work. The upper level is occupied, complicating everything. Can't work there with inadequate power supply. Can't even hang out there. I used to like to just hang out with my car and have a few beers. Not here. This old Ford Lube chart found on the wall indicates that there apparently was a flathead Ford living here before.
Good news is I have a new storage arrangement waiting for me, and for less money. Lots a room and they don't care if I hang out with my car. Sharing the new garage with the same guy I was sharing with prior to the carriage house. Plus the new garage is walking distance from my house. When the weather breaks, I will move into the new garage. Yay.
Killer! You're bringin' back the multi-engine set-ups!!!
Here's our ELTA Disciples of Speed Shop.....
Just picked this up out of Napa Valley, Ca.
And the '32
Not a great shot but I had a few things out for some spring cleaning the other day.
The day I brought the coupe home....I'll have to get some better shots of the big picture some day
Gettin ready for spring. I need spring SOOOOO BAD!
Very cool shots loaded up here!
Man some of you guys have awewsome shops and garages!
Mine is just a humble 2 car under. I need way more space, or way less stuff. Somehow I don't ever seem to acheive the latter.
King of the Mountain!
Thx Enloe. Yes Phillip. That movie was mostly true. Even Crazy Charlie and his C2
vette. Crazy Charlie I hear has passed. Where his car went no one knows. So I'm going to build mine up to go carve up Mulholland Dr.
I can see you banging gears saying "You wanna play footsie with fate"
I just got my Vette out of storage after 29 years.
here is a link to some pics
they are on the last page
A few of my cars,
Here is a picture of my car in my shop.
My little attached 2 car with the Vette . I finally brought this car home.
Sorry to be a bummer, but those cars and parts in your garage need really good insurance. My story drones on for two hours and then I cry at the end for dramatic effect.
Holy shit that's cool. I'm in Moorpark if you ever need a hand...
That is worth selling a Nomad!
But I kept the Nomad too. I sold a 1930 Model A Tudor Hot Rod instead.
Nice 'vette Enloe. Tell us about it.
