Yea Don I did sell it ....finally, that pic was from last March. Had to put things on hold (again) last year for a while, one of my twin daughters and her husband lost their jobs about 2 weeks apart. Chitty deal for a while $$$$ wise but they are getting back on their feet. Sold the SBC and trans. and have been busy installing the 507" Cadillac T400 and acquiring engine parts.

I think I told you before that I was talking to the NEW owner of Ravon Street Rods .... Steve Poore up in Belgrade, Montana. Steve is a retired Air Force F4 Phantom crew chief. The Bride and I took a road trip up to his place during the summer, he is very low key and builds his bodies out of his relatively small shop. He is extremely picky about his workmanship and the fit and finish aspect, he only does one body at a time. He was finishing up a '34 3 window, the ash wood structure inside looked like furniture, the doors fit almost perfectly and I would put the glass work on par with N&N. It's just Steve, his oldest daughter and another guy that builds the bodies.

Anywho, he just happens to have a STOCK HEIGHT '32 Victoria mold so that's whats in the works, as traditional looking as possible with a Trautwein hinged windshield, stock door hinges and an orig. looking firewall even though it will be recessed 3" for the big Cad. Should have it by end of March. Saw that you painted yours and sold it, congrads, big road trip for you too huh?

What was and what will be.

I am in the planning stages for a garage build and could use some inspiration. The garage I really want is over budget so I will have to have a smaller slab and maybe even in a location that I dont want. I have not had a garage in about a year now and its killing me. I will have one this year even if it just a floor but with all the hurtles it seems like I an humbled more and more every day. I really hate to have a smaller slab but I am stuck unless I can some how come up with 2 more grand.

So post some pics guys and gals. Here is pictures of my old 2 bay garage. We only rented that house for a year before we bought a place. I loved that shop but it was unheated and very drafty.

Here is where I have been working for the last year. When its cold I cant work. When it rains I cant work cause the water turns the floor to mud. No creeper, just cardboard.

The first pic is the old shed that I have to keep my tools in. It has holes and my tools are rusting along with mice making homes in my box and also found some snake skin once. I also have 3 other buildings where some tools are. I am scattered all over the place and its hard to find things at times. My poor cherry picker is covered by a tarp and the metal shelf with doors that you see above by the compressor is getting water in it when it rains.
The foam box is a makeshift well house. On the right of the shed is where I want the garage to be but will cost 1,000-1,500 more cause the ground is not level.

Second is of the carport I work on cars in. Dirt floor. It does have lights, a switch and two outlets. The compressor and my welder stay in the bigger shed and I have to have 100' of air hose to reach the car port.

The third picture is the large shed with a lean too. Tools are all over like I was saying. Its nice to have buildings but every one of them need work. I had to put new 2x12" in the large building to hold the floor up. That was fun. I loaded it down with stuff when I moved here and had to take it all back out to fix the floor.

The last one is to show where the cheep floor would go. Down by where the 5th wheel is. That would make it pretty close to the road. I need to save money but this place is paid off in 5 more years and we want to build up the hill behind the camara 100 yards. It would give us a view and cell phone service . I plan on keeping the house we live in now as a guest house and a bar with a pool table in the living room. Also want arcades and a standing electric dart board.

If it were me, I would close in that carport thing.....even if its just with tarps. Will keep the wind out and the floor dry. Then you can save a bit longer for the shop that you want.

I thought about that but then I would have to go on the roof and seal all the old holes from where the screws where. The metal on that roof and the lean too was recycled. It would also need a ditch and drain tile on the leading edge of the hill that runs the full length of the car port. All that is not a lot of work but I would be worried about getting on top of that rickety old thing. Like I was saying. Every building needs work and if I at least get the floor in I can use a creeper and jack stands. Stands in the dirt makes me nervous.

Think I found the guy for the job though. He called a lil bit ago. He is going to try and make it out tomorrow. $3 a sq foot if its flat and extra if he has to put footing and raise the slab for where I really want it. I will see how it goes. I basically have 3 grand for a floor. The one and only bid I have would cost $4,060 for a 24x30' slab witch is 720 sq'. Thats if its in a flat area. Add $1000-1500 for the spot I want it in.

This other guy at $3 per foot would be $2,160 for a flat slab. That would make the size I really want and almost a grand to play with so I can get it where I want it. So im skeptical and hopeful. Will also need peers for the lift witch the first guy says he will do for free.
