i work in my dad's building in the back yard, he built it for his printing business, but has since given up and just works for a big print shop full time and sells retail printed stuff for himself part time, it's a 1 bay garage, the other side of the wall is like a work area, and i store parts not in use on the second floor

once i finish my camaro, we're gonna clean the whole place out and put up shelves and workstations and stuff, places to put tools, etc before we start on our 75 trans am

has a/c in the summer, but only one of those lp tank heaters that we move around where needed in the winter.

lol, we put up black plastic around the stairway and over the stairway door to keep heat and cold from going up there

i'd like to have a bigger place, but i can't complain

Wow...memories......terrible torturous memories, of why (probably)arthritis is setting in...

First snowmobile: 1970. Worked on it outside.
First car : 1976 Motor change in the grass. Pulled motor (shortblock only) with a pipe and a scabbed tripod on one side of the car, BY MYSELF. Couldn't be bothered to wait for help. One end of the 2" pipe on the tripod (was like a teepeemade of 1" gas pipe). I lifted on the other end, with the motor tied to the middle. Worked pretty good at the time. Would I try it again?? NOPE. Recommend it? Nope. It was scary when the chain slid over the pipe toward your hands. Installing the new shortblock gave me the insight to tie off the motor to the tripod and where I lifted, so it didn't slide. Wish I would have had pictures...but at 13 years old, you don't take time for that stuff!

Kept up the "grass shop" till '85. (At least the utility bills weren't bad)
Bought a house with a one car garage in 85. Kids came, projects took a backseat to formula and diapers.

Got back into Cars in 2001, hence the name Beenaway2long.
Now, with kids grown, its Daddy Time !!
