    In the Shop

    During the last few snow storms Gwendolyn, my 2014 WRX hatch has accumulated a large amount of mag chloride along with the other crap that comes from driving on snow covered roads. We had a break in the weather so I ran her through the touchless car wash this afternoon and instead of putting her back in the unheated garage I parked her in the shop for a little detailing.

    Since the shop is heated I spent some time vacuuming the interior and cleaning the glass inside and out. Here's a picture with a couple of the other cars in my fleet. Missing is Bruiser, a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 and the Baby 7. Bruiser lives in the attached garage and the Baby 7 is back with its creator getting some mods.

    There is 864 HP among these three, add Bruiser and the Baby 7 and I have 1,254 total HP in the fleet to play with (not counting the lawn tractor and the Crazy Cart).

    It's not intended to be a business, the shop is my version of a retirement home. I enjoy working on my cars as well as driving them. Having the shop as well as a two car attached garage allows me to keep them all inside away from the weather.

    I need that whole shop with the lift! How much did the lift cost you?

    -I know a lot about cars, man. I can look at any car's headlights and tell you exactly which way it's coming.
    -Nobody remembers the guy who finished second but the guy who finished second.
    -Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary… that’s what gets you.

    Just under $3,400, delivered, installed and an electrician to run the 220v service to it. It's a 10,000 lb capacity BendPac. I had to buy it as it was getting too painful and difficult to get up off the creeper or floor when working under the cars. Now I wish I had bought it years ago.

    If I ever build a shop I will definitely spend the money to buy one! Two post jacks are sweet!
