i live at the tail end of where the hell are we road . but it is 20 miles to town if i need supplies or anything . we did get a convenience store some years back. at least i dont have to drive 20 miles for beer
i started with a 40's era dirt floor garage . could barely get out of a car in it. i thought i had it made when i moved up to concrete in a one car garage. in those days you rolled it out to work on it then back in at night. painted many in the drive .
and it was uphill both ways in the snow to get to it ........

|tech69||seems like in the boondocks having a lot of land comes with the turf but in Ca a backyard and a garage is living the high life. I'm lucky to have a 2 car garage.|

Thanks for pointing that out, we need a reminder every once in a while as to how damn lucky we ALL are to be able to do what we do on any scale.

|deadbodyman||Whats surprizing is even the mechanic next door can blow out one layer of spot welds once its dialed in...he came over for something and sat there watching and couldnt believe it so he tried it and for the next 1/2 hr he not only finished the rest of the welds we cut up a bunch of stuff...its kinda fun, everybody wants to play with it...I feel a bit like Huck Finn white washing the fence..|

The simple truth is, when you can do this work, and do it well, you will NEVER be out of work. And often, more often than not, you have too much to do!

Thats exactly what I did 5 years ago,or that was the plan anyways.I closed the big shop just before the economy went in the crapper, took two years off and worked on my old cars at home then the neighbors started complaining and the sheriffs kept showing up so I rented a small shop that could only fit my tools and two cars...but once the word got around that I had a shop all my old customers started coming around and little by little I got tied up doing everybody elses work again and my old cars sat and sat, they havn't been touched in over a year...... but I have a hard time saying NO....The only way you can get away with working on your own stuff is to stick to your guns once youve made up your mind....
I guess I wasnt completely ready but the old cars will be waiting for me when I am....Heck I still have two stored at my Bro in laws property and three at the shop...

|shine||my problem is i have 3 16x25's inside the 40x90 . but i loose a lot because i built it to drive through with a trailer. if i cut back to 1 or 2 cars i would be fine. that is my goal for the new year , retire and only do my own and maybe 1 vette at a time. but i am done with rust and dents . just cant beat on this metal any more .|

40 acres under a roof = 41 acres of storage needed.
theres some scientific formula that you can use to figure it out exactly but its a close estimate...
