Arnold in dress, I don't think so. But if it floats your boat to imagine him that way, ok.
Arnold is wearing a mini-skirt in the poster to the left. Look again! Just messing with ya...

Here it is with my latest project on it.

figured if I wanted to see it someone else would to

I would have expected some comments would be made about the motorcycles. I had no idea the posters we hung 20 years ago would be of such interest. I guess you never know what's going to get this crowd going.

I just bought a mill and lathe for the garage, so we'll be rearranging that area soon. Maybe it will be time to retire Arnold and his friends.

To keep the theme going, here's a couple pics of the garage at the cabin in Georgia:

The whole basement is the garage.



Our tastes in wall decorations have changed over the past 20 years.






Our love of motorcycles hasn't. Do pics of bikes in the driveway count?



Not quite as messy as the garage in Florida, but getting there.

That Arnold picture is a classic. I was just thinking the other day if a guy could still get one of those..
I hate what politics have done for his image.
Back to the garage..nice driveway pics! Got to love the classic Interceptors

Awesome picture, and awesome garage. I have a friend in the UK who restored two old Triumphs in a garage that I think was a bit smaller than yours. However he did have a decrepit, falling down garden shed in the back that was maybe 6'x8' where he kept a small mill and lathe.

I'd like to see more pics of the paint on the green bike's tank.

The garage is 16' X 9' and looks bigger in the photograph than it actually is.

I sold it last weekend. The guy who bought it is a photographer and has already taken some nice pictures

Beautiful! In that panoramic shot it looked like some kind of crazy airbrushing.
