roger1 New pictures will be coming soon.
I just had a professional photographer come over and do a photo shoot with my recently completed '55 Bel Air in front of the shop.

Here's one of my '69 Corvette from a while back. It was taken by the professional photographer that was hired by the magazine. It was done right before I had put the letters over the bays up (he photoshopped the letters in for the ones that were published in the magazine).

By the way, I put an email out last week to the local Corvette club members and within 3 days, the Vette was sold.
I sold it to the owner of the local Buick-GMC dealership.. It was just not getting any attention from me now that I've got my '55 done and am getting ready to start doing a restomod on my wife's '57 pickup.



Here's another one taken for a Christmas card last month:

The end bay is walled off from the rest of my shop. I call it my "clean room". However, it's more like my dirty room. My intention from the very start was to use this room for sanding, painting, welding and an whatever else makes a mess.

I made a make-shift spray booth out of it for painting the car. I put filters in the windows on one side and fans on the other side blowing out. It worked pretty well.

You're getting very close to realizing the original inspiration!
Good for you, Roger!

Love your garage man. I had a couple pictures of it on my I Pad before tracking them back to this forum and your awesome documentation with even more pictures. Kudos to the build, and thanks for sharing your journey. BTW, getting back to your quote, your garage is the wallpaper on my Smart Phone, I-Pad, and work computer. I hope to soon have pics of my own build to post. Though there will be a few modifications, rest assured, your garage is the inspiration. Thanks for that.

roger1 Thanks!

Actually, I didn't want a lift. I think having a lift for a home workshop is over rated. It's just too easy to put my car up on 4 large jackstands if I need to have it in the air. Then when I'm done, I can put the jackstands away. A lift would just be in the way and I'd be tripping over it.

I'd rather be working underneath the car on my back than I would overhead also. Years ago, I worked for a business that had a gas station and I had free access to their service area after hours. So, I used their lift and really didn't see much advantage to it.
It's great for a service station or pro shop when you've got to get a car in the air super quick but not for a home shop.

If a person needs the lift for storing an extra vehicle, I can sure see that. But, I didn't need that. I've got an attached 2 car garage on the house and a 2 car carport in addition to my workshop that will hold 3 cars.
