Default And you thought that Lambo garage was sick!

Found this on NYSpeed, who found it on garagejournal.com

The Owner did an awesome job of documenting, tons of pictures and info in the thread.

Must. *******. Have.


Wicked sick. That's when your automotive hobby truly reaches theraputic levels. I can't imagine cursing while working on my car in that garage.

Jesus that is ******* amazing!

Its awesome when people take the time to document with lots of photos and share it with other enthusiasts.

Although I give the block foundation a B, the ******* floor gets a A+. I can relate to the work involved with the radiant heat, but boxing out for that floor lift and then topping it off with the epoxy coating is just mint. Really, really nice work.

Nothing like being able to take a **** while staring at your race car and watching TV all at the same time.

Mine isn't that nice, but I bet I do more real work in mine than he ever will. That said, I have a 30x56 now, 1/2 shop, 1/2 storage. Just cut a check for a downpayment on another 36x60x12 building TODAY! Should be done by July 4th. Also, putting in central air in the existing shop. Already have the unit, just need to wire it up. The nice thing about being in the country and Nebraska in general...the cost. 36x60 building for only $16,000 total. No concrete in that one, though.

So, everything that is in the "storage" side is getting moved to the new building and I'm taking over that side for shop, too. Got room for a two post then. Trannies will be SOO much easier with the car in the air. Can't wait.
