There are a couple of pier blocks, some concrete steping stones, garbage and dirt.

Is that a "Spitfire" residing next to the "barn"? Factory hard top too! ! Overdrive? They are quite rusty here in the mid-west. You have a FANTASTIC place! Not so excessive as many, but it seems you have planned well! I love it! STYLE!

I brought that Triumph home because it was little and cute...I just wasn't interested in it, and never drove it. It's replacement is a little bigger.

Kudos. VERY impressive layout! I just can't tell if you're out in the country a bit, or in the middle of a subdivision. (I see some other houses in the background.) Either way, awesome "spread'...

Speed

I'll just repeat what everyone else has said. Awesome, cool, very nice! I love the nostalgic look and especially the wood floors.

That is awesome, not to mention you have the coolest shop/garage I've seen yet.

And of course I love the finger.

Your shop got brought back up by someone talking about cool shops that should/could be ina book. I recall seeing it 'cause it is so cool, but couldn't recall it or your handle - glad someone brought it up! Way cool. Any new pics?

Your garage is by far the nicest I've seen. I have one request, can you flip the American flag so that it is displayed properly? The Stars & Blue are always supposed to be in the upper left hand corner when displayed, (whether horizontally or vertical). Also, any interest in selling that flat-side Shovel?

I've seen this garage before and couldn't remember where. Then I picked up my Ultimate Garages book and found it. You never mentioned your garage was famous. It was one of my favorite garages in the book. Simple, nostalgic, and not perfect.

The finger reminded me of a little bar we had here in Springfield back in the late 70's when I was in school. The owner had a miniature version of that salute on a pedestal behind the bar next to the cash register. The inscription on the base? "DICK YOU!"

While the real name of the bar was the Twilight Inn, we all affectionately called the place "DY's"!

That garage is the stuff dreams are made of. It looks like the perfect place to wrench on a classic... and the knuckle with girder forks just casually hanging on the wall... TOO MUCH MAN!
