SWEET! Did you get the same one? Take some pics and let us know what you think. It makes working on your car a TON easier.

Bill,

I did get the same one as you. I am having it delivered to a friends construction site, and he is going to load it onto a flat bed for me with his fork lift.

I am spending today and tomorrow cleaning out the garage getting ready for it. My plan is park the Mustang on it, above the 911 turbo during the warmer months, and then move the turbo up there during the winter. We have a 3 car garage, but with the motorcycles and kids bikes, toys, etc., I just don't have enough room for 3 cars. My wife has been kind enough to have her Volvo outside for the summer, but with it getting closer to fall/winter, its only fiar that she gets her parking space back.

I need to head out into the garage and bleed the brakes in the mustag good enough so that I can drive it into the street etc. It has been in the process of getting disc brakes for about 2 years, smile.

I will take plenty of pictures for everyone.

Bill

Yup, I got the two jacks. I had them convert them from the hand pump to pneumatic. It was extra but I think it was worth it.

Boy, putting that together was a little bit of a pain in the a$$. I still need to fill it up with fluid and get it all leveled etc, and then get the garage door raised and teh side opener installed.

Overall it looks to be burley enough.

Bill

The first one for me (us) was a pain. The second one went together quite quickly. Post some pics when you get it all done.

I'll definitely get some pictures. I have my Mustang up on it now, but the garage door is in the way, so I can't fit the 911 under it yet. It looks like I will have a little over 5 feet of clearence under the lift, so that will be nice. I was worried about not being able to get the Harley out from the back of the garage, but 5 feet is pletny of room.

Bill

OK, not the greatest pictures, and the garage isn't organized, but will give you guys an idea.

Does it have a lock on it to prevent it from going to high?

How is the garage door keeping the cars from going in?

You depress a button that activates the hydralic pump. Once you get it to the height you want, you lower it back onto the saftey stops.

The garage doors are not preventing the cars from going in, the distance the door hangs from the ceiling is a limiting factor.

That is one (non practical) car I would consider having & their isn't many that I want really that would be in my budget. Are they nice to drive? Easy to drive?

Can you jack it up without the wheels on?

Once you drove the car up onto the ramps, you can use a bottle jack or similar to put the car on jack stands using the jack tray(s) if you wanted to, so yes.

Nathan,

My '66 is a straight 6, not a V-8, so the front end is a lot lighter, and I think more well balanced. Currently I am running three one barrel Webers on it with a progressive linkage, and a six into 2 header. Its pretty peppy to be honest.

I used it to drive from Virginia to Iowa when I was in college (about 1200 miles) and it wasn't bad at all.

Bill

Nice to see some vintage American muscle sharing space with a very sharp P-car. Timeless design.

That lift is on my Christmas list - especially since I can't build a 3rd garage!

PS: Bill - Is your trim just forward of your rear driver's wheel notched out? Maybe its just the way the picture looks to me.

Thanks Rooked. The trim isn't notched out, its off the car.

Long story short, I had to swerve onto the shoulder of the interstate to avoid a rather large pick up that drifted into my lane. Once on the shoulder, I hit something that punched a hole in the transition piece from the rocker to the quarter panel. I have the new piece, just waiting on the rubber seal, and then I'll get the piece painted and installed. Its killing me just having the car sit....

Bill

That's sweet Bill! A couple nice cars too! Did you get the combo with the jacks? I did and had them converted from a hand pump to pneumatic. It makes jacking up the car just that much easier....
