    Nice!

    Is the black car a factory screaming-chicken delete? What year is it, '78?

    Carpeting on a garage floor? Do you work in it ever? Just curious.

    The 78 is a WS6/W72 or a Pontiac 6.6 litre (not an Olds engine), heavy duty suspension, 4 speed T10, Quadajet and all the good stuff. I put a cam in it with GTO headers and a high output ignition. I just had the paint done, the OEM decals are to be put on when the weather improves by our truck lettering company, can't wait.

    The only work I'll do in this garage is clean and wax the cars, I have a lift, compressor and tools in my regular garage. The 4 gas lights in the center of the ceiling are there to iluminate that area for waxing (not paste wax) and interior work/detailing.

    I have put smart park vynal mats under the 78, 84 and the 328 as they leak, but the 2002 has only 1700 miles on it and not a drop. The carpet will soften the sound and stop the concrete dust altogether.

    I want to use this as a living space, has heat and a/c and all the comforts of home. A special filter will keep the dust away so the car can remain uncovered.

    It's been fun..

    Looking good John! I can't wait to see it in person when it's done. Sounds like you're doing it right, buddy.

    Damn!!! With that set up, who needs a house? Add a little kitchenette, bathroom, bed and a fireplace....and you're all set.

    Nice lay out John.

    Thanks all,

    There is plumbing, but no toliet as yet, I'll just put a bucket next to the TV stand.

    The back of the bar has plenty of room, even after I install a slot machine and a pachinko game on that back wall, Quarters only...

    Actually, my wife thinks she'll never see me again once the place is done. It should be the first two weeks in April, the carpeting is scheduled for the first week of April.

    Hutch, with the run for Greg and all the other plans, this should be a good season. look forward to it.
