Garage Progress Pics

Here are a few pics of the progress on the garage/shop. Earlier exterior pics can be seen at

or in my gallery (click my car)









And here's my "loafing" corner - including cable TV. And yes, a person CAN fall asleep on that couch watching a ballgame.

Stepside - The "shop" side for building projects and working on the '32 is 24 x 28. The "daily driver" side is the identical size.

Willys - Notice that I did NOT show a picture of the "daily driver" side. That is my secret weapon. It's the Bermuda Triangle of crap in beat up cardboard boxes. I also have spots on that side for some of the big items like my Kwik Lift and larger tools I don't use very often. Also keep in mind this is the condition after about one week in service. Just wait until a year from now. The shop side will be drowning in cardboard boxes and broken parts. Maybe HR.Com should require all new garage owners to post pics 365 days after they start bragging on their new set ups. Just to keep 'em honest (and humble).

Sure...as long as you pull the pan on my 460 and fix that dang leaky rear seal first. THEN you get to sit on the couch.

Well, there actually IS a frig - but I decided to keep it in the house until the spring. We are already having freezing temps at night up here - and snow possible on Saturday. I'd be taking the fridge into the house during the winter anyhow to protect it from freezing - so just figured I'd wait until next spring to haul it out there. But no problem on the cold beers. In Wisconsin we just throw a case or two out in a snowdrift. It's fine as long as we stay away from where people have been writin' their names.

Nice garage. Looks as clean as these "hot rod' shows where all of the rusty bolts on that '72 nova (or whatever is their "victim") come out with the simple twist of a wrist, and they show what they do, not how they do it. It'd be nice if they showed/explained how they do all of that.

Hey Dewey,
For what its worth, I have always kept a fridge in the garage, regardess of temp. (been as cold as -30) There's always ice in the pails, so I know it gets cold in there. The motor keeps things warm enough , as long as its plugged in. Been doing it for 10+ years on the same old apartment size fridge. Sweet shop though!
