    Unless your garage is quite large, that's really not an accurate answer to the question. The ones in the first and last pics in my signature are in mine.

    My DD is an '89 Toyota 4x4 pickup and next to it is my wife's '97 Toyota 4Runner. Then of course, there is my Z.

    "Unless your garage is quite large, that's really not an accurate answer to the question"

    It's 25' x 50' There are 7 cars in there right now, but if there was a hurricane I can fit 9.

    Did you get a second Z Arne, or is that just some photoshop work?

    -Mike

    Neither. Jim (a7dz) came down from Tacoma and spent the night here prior to us doing the Mary's Peak Fun Run with the Datsuns NW group. More pictures here.

    Currently I'm working on building a second garage. The primary garage barely fits the Z with all of the equipment I have. Just one 71 240Z in my garage when there is a storm approaching. It's safer to keep the Z out of the garage otherwise.

    For tools..

    12x36 lathe

    9" 1928 Southbend lathe

    Milling machine

    TIG, MIG, Oxyfuel Equipment

    Plasma Cutter

    5hp and 7hp compressors

    Bead blast cabinet

    Pressure pot sandblaster

    Digital Storage Oscilloscope

    Engine hoist

    The list goes on...

    The garage is mainly for the construction of a 1/2 scale F4U Corsair. (Experimental)

    I've been "cheating" on my Z by loving on the plane for some time now. I think the Z knows somethings up. :)

    The Z's been kicked out the garage and has to spend the winter in the tractor, Uh, I mean Z shed with the '73 Deere 1530 and the Deere 111 lawn tractor. I promised the wife a kitchen remodel and I need the space in the garage to bring out the woodworking tools and room to build the cabinets.

    Mt Dora ;)Just a little North of you. Around the corner from me there's a guy named Jake that has his Z friends come over and "play" in his shop. They have everything I don't have but hope to have someday.

    Cya,

    Hi Jim, good buddy! What a nice list of gear you have! :bunny: Although my Z still holds my rapt attention, to be closely followed by my (newly planned) winter project of transplanting a turbocharged LD28 into another 240Z shell, I'm actually most intrigued by the Corsair. That aircraft, the P-51 and the Supermarine Spitfire all share my appreciation equally! What is it "they" say, "beauty follows function"? Flying has always been one of the loves of my life, which unfortunately I've been unable to pursue due to time constraints. It's not something I want to do without a significant commitment of effort and practice. Flying as well as sailing, which is almost flying rotated by 90 degrees- that I still have enough time for, as I started to accumulate those useful skills at a very early age- unlike flying, welding or using a metal lathe.

    Welding and and proper use of the metal lathe are two of the primary mechanical skills that remain on my wish list to be minored (as opposed to being mastered, as I wouldn't be so presumptuous to think that's possible without beginning at a much earlier time in life- not that I'm an old dog. Arf. ROFL) Or is that a demonstration of "rolling over"? :D I'd like to be much better with the brake, plasma cutter and milling machine too.

    Oh golly, where do I begin? Lets start with the "bat cave", the little 12X38 foot addition Grandpa built for his Airstreams. It houses the 68 Roadster, 9 tons of red rock (indiginous to this area and can not get wet without falling apart) quarried in 1890 and used for foundation stone. Someday it will be used in an indoor fireplace. An 8 horse 120 gallon air compressor, some metal shelving and garden tools, weed eater and chain saw, a non working big screen, (big brother's), and a bathroom.

    The main part of the garage (26X38) has in it now my 73Z, and #110, a John Deere 111H, 3-3ft by 8 ft work tables, 3 work benches, a huge amount of garage sale stuff that needs to go somewhere, all kinds of spare Z parts including a driver's fender, 2 doors a hood and a hatch, a 4 speed tranny with drive shaft, a spare head with valve cover, chrome headers, a spook, 4 totes full of small Z stuff, more metal shelving racks, a huge assortment of tools, hand and garden, and other things I haven't seen in years. If all is placed just right I can get the 96 Saturn SC2 in there in case of hail. In the yard I have a pear tree without a partrige.
