I already told the wife if she wants her huge kitchen in our next house I need a detached garage with a lift, lol.
Hey..... Thanks for your service!

Thanks for the kind words on the shop....I have had a blast building the place.

Don't make the mistake I did and do the garage before the house. I will assure the wife will make sure the house is way nicer than the garage.
I have been working on the house for a year now....it would be safe to say that we have been running our own stimulus program here in far west Texas.

I lucked out and built my wife her dream house first and then did the shop. lol She was all about getting my dream shop built. (good woman!) I put up a 60x90x18 to work on equipment but all winter it has been camaro, Buick GN projects, and right now there are 4 dirt modifieds in there being worked on. I'm 62 and feel like I've "paid my dues" farming. My son is a hell of a racer and I'm having the best time of my life. Nothing like seeing your son drive thru a pack of 20 cars and win a big feature race.
Anyway, I love my shop and it's tax deductible.
PS You have a beautiful shop and know you're going to enjoy it once you get it organized!

Thanks! Do you have a thread with pics of your shop? Big, or small......I just love seeing great shops. My wife is great, we actually work together full time. She was the first to tell me to do it right and enjoy it. I just have this problem with overdoing everything.
It also appears you have been Blessed....that time you spend with your son is awesome!
I am also a farmer, I know well what you mean by dues!
Enjoy your son and shop! If you get time post up a couple of photos.

I'm not real handy with pics but I'll try to put some up. Probably I'll have my son take some. Soon I hope.

Hey I love what you are driving now!
I really have to say the interior is really nice. Now we are getting after the outside. I am starting to wonder if we ever finish these projects, dang internet and HGTV epic everything shows just keep new mods coming.

Wow, I can't believe it has been over two years since I have been on this forum. Dropped in to say Hello and see who all is still around. Maybe some of the old timers will post up and get caught up.

Headed to Texas this weekend to meet a new client from California. He is handing over a Camaro in pieces and I'll deliver a OPTIMA ready Camaro for the July 25th event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. We are meeting in Kerrville so the girls can say hello to some friends.

Pete! How are you Brother? I hope Deb is back to 100% and your girls are doing well.
Your customer is a lucky man, I know you will have that Camaro in fighting shape with time to spare.
My Camaro is down right now, seems I found the limits of the LPE rear end. Trying to get a new one ordered this week, I need to get back to racing soon.

Since you brought this thread back to life, I got a chance to look back over it. Man you did a heck of a job with it and that's that I'm sure the pictures don't do it justice. Good to hear that everything is going good over there.

Well, I have just spent the last few days reading this thread in my spare time,working lots so to come here with fellow camarians is great.
Long way away to me in New Zealand but have been to the USA a couple of times and love it, hope to do a longer stint over there when the kids get settled in work. still a few years away.
Re the build thread, absolutely love it, well done and yes you deserve it.
My wife and I with our two boys moved to the farming life last year, hydroponic lettuce and about 8acres in mesclun and baby spinach. The intention was to build a small three bay garage with man cave slash self contained unit at the rear, well the money soon got soaked up with getting the business up to where it needed two be and now we are thinking of putting it up for sale as it is not for us.
So very disappointed not have done my man cave but where the camaro sleeps is under a tidy up programme and will put up some signs etc bought on our trips to the U.S.
I will put up pics in time as it is still exciting for me.
Once again well done on your build. lOVE IT....."
If we ever get to Texas would love a tour.
Regards Jason

That's not a garage, it's an ecosystem. Glad to see the hard work pay off- just remember than more than a few people have traded health for prosperity and don't become one of those. Make the time to enjoy it.
