I know a guy who moved his family to a new house just to get a large detached garage. If you are looking for a life coach.

That thing is clean.

Love it!!

My dad had a '66 Impala right after his Beetle (first car). I'm very fond of that era Impala just because of the stories my dad would share of all the adventures he had.

I "think" i can fit a lift....measuring this week.

Spent a few minutes this morning drilling holes into the car. A previous owner had done a shady seatbelt install. These cars had seatbelts as a dealer installed option, but the cars had dimples where seatbelts needed to be installed but it needed to be drilled out. I ducked up and ordered the wrong color seatbelts, but oh well.

Now I'm comfortable with the kids in it

Yep. I'm torn. I really want a set of cross laced wire wheels, but these look sooooo good.
