What's the story on the '30 "A" shell and the '33 or '34? I see a '30 dash too.

Nice lift. If only I had the headroom...

When I bought the house I used to do some restoration on old Corvettes. The house had a 3 car garage and I had it expanded out to 5, but can put 6 in it if one is on the lift. The concrete pour was done for the 9,000#/27,000#, clear-floor, truck lift and there is 12-1/2' of headroom. I later added the loft for storing parts. I can put ~15 cars in the driveway.

There is 230 volt 30-amp service for the compressor, the lift, and an arc welder. The machine is a CNC/power-feed/manual mill/drill/lathe with digital read-out.

The A bone shells are left overs from my '31 Tudor build, the '34 shell and the '27 Roadster dash are from my Model T RPU build.

Here is my little two car garage with the single car garage door.

Yep it's kinda messy, I didn't clean it up for the photos, this is how I roll.

I own a seasonal business. I work my butt off for three months, normal work level for three months and then no work for 6 months, so I have plenty of time.

I helped a good friend 'preserve' one of these many years ago. It wasn't built very well as I recall.
