What's in YOUR garage?

Recommended Posts

Currently there's a CSP311 and a Z31 2+2 Turbo. Hoping to get the Z31 done and back on the road in the next couple of weeks so I can get an S30 or C110 in its place.

Finally took 3 days to sell off a bunch of wood working tools (huge drill press, Grizzly table saw, Ryobi router table and a B&D Radial arm saw) Cleaned everything up and built a few shelves, tossed a bunch of crap, gave away my 300ZX B/W T-5 tranny and 79' ZX 5-speed and a few other things and found enough room to slide the 260Z in the garage, FINALLY!!

There's just no way in Hell that I'm leaving the 70' outside this winter when I start working on the 74'. I'll pull the 70 out on nice days when I got body work on the 260Z but other than that, it'll sit in a corner.

As you can tell from the pictures, Anything that can fit on the wall is shelved, nailed and bolted to the wall and out of the way. Parts on one side and tools on the other. It's cramped but it works.

My garage construction project began in earnest last fall, continued with the electrical this past winter, and ended with interior / exterior trim etc. this summer. Finally got vehicles in late this summer. Pic 1 - '71 Z with '91 Miata in background. Pic 2 - '96 Nissan Pickup. Pic 3 - far right = '78 911SC (and 16' kayak dangling above :eek:).

Well, after spending all it's time in the garage, the 240 got moved to driveway, for the next week. I sold my X1/9 this past summer, for a "big" Fiat. Currently my Fiat 850 spyder and a new addition, a 1989 Ferrari 328. So that is what bumped the z outside. The Fiat goes to the warehouse next week, and the z goes back in the garage with the 328.

Daily drivers, 04 Grand Cherokee and 90 Cherokee remain out in the snow and weather all year, until I can build a shop behind the house.

By the way, after having the Ferrari for a bit, it has made me appreciate my 240z even more. I really thought I would start to lose interest, not true. I thought I would sell it, but I hope I don't have to.

Folks, keep those 240z's, they are very impressive sports car. If you don't have one yet......GET ONE NOW.

Enjoy,

RG

I've only got a single-wide garage and with Z parts all over and what not, I don't have room to put the car in.....even when I could put it in, I couldn't open the doors on the car.

So the 1972 240Z is in the driveway, the 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro (once I fix the clutch) will be parked on the grass, the 1973 Ford F250 is on the side of the house (and for sale), and the 1969 Volvo 1800S is under the tent in the back yard waiting for me to get $$ to paint it and put it back together.

As of this past Sunday, 12/08/08, there's something new in my garage - heat! Pictured below is the system that is now circulating a water / propylene glycol mixture through the pex tubing laid in the slab last fall. Just in time for the predicted 4 degrees F low expected this coming Monday. I'm hoping to get some car projects done this winter, and this will sure make it easier crawling around on the floor.

Woke up this morning and the temp was 7 below. I have cable heat in the garage floor. I keep the garage at 50 all winter long. Just warm enough to wear jeans and a flannel and still feel comfortable. Still hurts like he** when you bang a knuckle though:hurt:

Now to the garage:

2005 Toyota Highlander Limited (Wife's DD)

2005 Ford F-150 King Ranch Super Crew (My DD)

1970 240Z in full restoration, pictured below (My Toy)

2003 Craftsman DGT 6000 Garden Tractor with 48" snow thrower and chains

Power Wheels Barbie Jeep (5 year old daughters DD)

Various other gas powered tools

And a big, hungry dog that doesn't like strangers!
