Thanks. My 2002 SS isn't actually a CME. It's a regular Bright Rally Red SS that I put some stripes on and did a little custom painting on the rear valence.

Oh. Ok. Too many acronyms on these internet forums these days!! I thought you were using the acroynym as "Comemorative Edition" or something like that.

Nice set-up, what's your wall height? I'm going to start breaking ground on a new garage (shed for the city) in my backyard this spring with a four post lift.

My actual stud walls are 12 ft high and they are sitting on top of about 6" of concrete sticking up above the floor leve around the outside. So I have minimum of 12 ft 6 in ceiling height clearance. Most 2 post lifts will require minimum 12 ft clearance.
If you are looking for maximum versitility in using a lift a 2 post will offer the most versitility. It keeps almost the entire under body of the car open for working on it. A drive on 4 post will end up blocking access to a lot more of the underbody. That's why I went with the 2 post. I am looking to get a 4 post someday but that will mostly be used for storage purposes so I can put one car on top of the other for parking space.

Thanks for the info, I plan on a four post lift mainly for storage, but it will also be better the working on you back.

Funny you should ask about that. I told my wife I was going to move our old bed out into the garage and put one of the Camaro's on the lift so I could sleep under my car!! She gave me a few rolley eyes when I said that.

Thanks for the compliments everyone. It's been a long time planning and saving money but so worth it in the end.

Well sorry to disappoint but I'm really not much of an alcohol drinker. A "drink" for me is a good bottle of root beer. Otherwise I mostly stick to water and milk. Just never developed a taste for beer much.

You'll love it. I dont do alot of work in my garage anymore but when I do its nice. I dont ever want to swap a trans or do so much as an oil change on my back under jackstands again.
