The property slopes so much that we walk into the front of the house and than walk out the basement in the rear. The door is not to wide so it is a bit of a hassle with the pro-taper bars on the TDM.

With my latest addition, I've officially run out of space.








This was the only space I had left, but now the car takes up this gap so I can get a bike in front of it.


This is probably the best thing I ever did, make a 18ft work bench. But the cabinets at the back did clear up a lot of the bike parts, giving me more space to fill with other crap.



I'm hopping to building a 2,500sq/ft garage next year. That should clear this lot up.

Nice SheepShagger!

I especially like the mix of adventure kiddie and adult power toys stuffed in there.

And if you get bored with those you can try out the Pogo stick (after a 12 pack of Becks of course) or get creative with the side walk chalk.

Anyone interested in a larger image, send me a PM and I'll forward one.
I think I'll need an email address, unless I can send a 900k attachment through the advrider system.

It's made by Dackdraft Racing in South Africa.
Was built by Vintage Motorsports in Connecticut
Ford Racing crate engine 351 bored and stroked 392 Spec's aroud 450hp 420lbs/tq
It's about 2400lbs, with BMW suspension & diff, so it's a real screamer and handles like a dream.

This is it getting built.

I'll have to give that a shot next time I always go for the skateboard when drunk. Either that or race the neighbor on his kid's XR70 with my son's XR50

Ignoring the awesome car for a second, I'm pretty sure Imageshack can handle that image. I know 900k is no problem. I think the 6500x4000 should be okay. Nothing about dimension restrictions on the site.

I'm sure there is a reason.
Concrete blocks get used because they are far cheaper, and any homeowner with a basic understanding of the materials can get it right. If you screw something up, you can dismantle the screwed up portion and do it over.

If you pour a monolithic slab (one with an integrated foundation) you need to have a great deal more knowledge about the concrete, the process, building forms, etc. You also have to get everything right the first time. there is no room for error. If the concrete hardens, and you find you did something wrong, you get to either: tear out the entire concrete slab and start over, or 2) live with the screw-up.

I like concrete block for the cost savings. I can do it myself, and work when I have free time, a few blocks at a time, or the whole thing in a day. I don't need to hire any help, or have concrete delivered.
