we have a lift in our shop that has my '71's shell sitting on it right now. i think a ceiling about 9ft should hold both, the camaro has a height of 54.2 in (4 1/2 ft), so it would take up half of the height, and I can't imagine a Sky is taller than the Camaro so (on screen anyway) they should fit

The sky is 50.2" and the Camaro is 54.2". How much shy of 9 feet is the ceiling? If it's anything more then an inch, I wouldn't do it. That will only give you an inch of play room per car and that is just too close for comfort imo plus you have to take into account the fin on the Camaro which I don't think is included in the Camaro's measurements.

Yeah that seems to tight for comfort. A friend of mine is recommending winter storage in a limestone mine. He and his dad have been using it for a few years with their early 60's show Caddies. The idea of not seeing the cars for months at a time makes me nervous though. Thanks for the input

Hmm. Thats an extremely tight fit. If you're desprate to make it work, you could cut a hole in the ceiling for the windshield of the Sky. Other than that, I don't think it will work out.
