Those all look very nice.  It is always good to have a place for our toys.  Here are some photos of our garage, 28' x 50'.  We could not add to the side, so we added onto the length about 8 years ago and wish I had done it sooner.  Had to put in 6' of fill in back as it sloped off.  There is room for 3 cars and 4 cycles with work space.  Also check out the ATGATT cabinet to keep everything handle for the quick ride.   Oh, as you can see we are also Car Nutz with some of my wife's and my trophies and posters.

Very nice Carl. I wish I had added on to mine. My cars have to stay out in the driveway unless one needs to be worked on. Then I can move everything around to get the front half in out of the weather.

Quote from: Ride4MS
What is the curtain rod looking thing to the upper right of the garage door track with the orange strap around it?...and more importantly why is it there?
Only answer if it is there for a useful reason that you care to share. I don't really want to be held accountable for everything sitting around in my garage  :-[ :-[.
 Sometimes garages just have "stuff" in them because there was a spot open, and "someone" (no names or familial relationship needed) didn't want it in the house
or the trash.

edit: A couple of photos were deleted. I checked with Carl and he didn't request it. I'm assuming that it was some sort of glitch in the software upgrade, so with Carl's assistance I've reposted one of them above and another one below.

I restored a 1986 Gold Wing Interstate about 10 years ago, and after moving everything each weekend and leaving cars out then having to put it all back for the week, is when I decided to add on. 


That rod is hanging there from the last garage sale, as it was used to hang clothes on  and never got taken down.


And I thought I would get a question on the stove/oven in the corner.  No, it is not for when I need to live in the garage, but for powder coating small items.  Works great.  When the addition was built, we added cable TV, as it was moved when building the addition.  The next year, I got the TV for Father's Day.  I can listen or watch TV, and if I don't like the political nonsense last Fall, just turn it to music only on the cable channel.


Here is a photo of the backyard with the city park and offices, which is called the Castle.  It was an Orphanage in the 1930-40's and then State School then in the the 1970's they City bought it.  Today it looks different, after about 16" of snow last night.

16" of snow, ok that rules out Ohio... Ok, see now you're in MN, guess winter returned last night, 75 here in Akron.

I was trying to pick out the ATGATT cabinet, then noticed it was the label on the pick. Didn't notice the stove but did see the chest freezer.

It was near 85 in Jennings, FL on Friday, and still pretty pleasant first thing Saturday morning. But after a cold front passed through early in the day Saturday, the temperature dropped throughout the rest of the day as I traveled northbound. By the time I got home around 10:00 p.m. Saturday night, the temps were in the mid 30s. When I got up this morning to go to "work" around 7:00, it was 28 degrees on my front porch. Those temps aren't much to compare to Minnesota, but they're a big adjustment from what parts of the US has seen the last few days.

The 1983 Interceptor is done and for sale.  See the For Sale section in the forum.  Tires have less that 500 miles, without using the Michelin Magic Marker shown by rideandfly in the above posting.  Carl

Well you clearly out watt me by a factor of 3, but still, I don't feel near as old when I see that others also still have a working VCR and cassette deck.  :)

Did you miss the laser-disc player?  ;)

I have actually upgraded a couple of things since the pics were taken. The B&K preamp/processor was replaced by a Fosgate FAP-T1+. Is that a beautiful back panel or what?!

WOW

I still have a VCR, its actually a VCR/DVD combo deck with copying capability, was great way to save some old family videos before the tape quality degrades, or I no longer have a VCR. Most of my stereo equipment is in mothballs these days, may get something new for the home office that can do bluetooth, but it won't be top of the line equipment like that, more likely Sony which has rarely disappointed me.
