    If I had a bigger garage...........I'd just fill it with more non-running future projects <G>. Been there, done that, have to work on my cars outside because the garage is full..................

        Bigger Garage won't help.
        Built my first 6 cars in a carport (last 3 of these in the carport/basement)
        Then I got my own house with a 21'x21' garage with a 10' ceiling....thought I was in heaven!
        Built 3 more cars there, but still had the problem of moving the finished cars in and out every time I wanted to work. So had to rent a friends garage for stotrage.
        Next I move to a 2400 sq ft shop with 11.5' ceiling. I was on top of the world for 9 years! But the enevitable still was stuffed to the roof before I move on.
        Even after I puched a hole in the wall and added a 8'x40'refridgerator trailer for parts storage.
        Well now I have a 3000 sq ft working shop with two 6000 sq ft storage buildings (15,000 sq ft total) and guess what???? After only 8 years they are reaching that "Full" status.
        We shuffled cars all day friday, just to make room for more.
        Moral of this story.

          There is always storage. For awhile, I had Studebakers stored in three different counties in NY plus one more out of state. If any of us had Ron Pratt's money, storage would not be a problem.

            I guess the size of your garage is a lot like how much money you make. You'll always live just barely within your means.

              I get two or three junk emails each day regarding the possibility of enlarging my garage. Don't believe it!
