This is one of my favorite threads. So, I will use this photo of my new car as an opportunity to encourage others to post up pics of their garages.

Sold the red one. Sat on the cash waiting for passion to stir me to buy the next fun car. Test drove almost everything. Nothing felt as raw and exciting as the Elise. The market for buying sports cars ripened. I bought the funnest car!

^^^That is a great car and a great place to keep and work on it.

I got my garage all ready and then had to put the plans on hold. The file side cabinets will be moved when the Lotus moves in to make room - someday.

Nothing like some of what I've seen here but I'm pretty proud of mine. It's not much but I think I've made something of a pretty humble standard residential garage. Sorry no Esprit in view yet, hopefully this spring.

^^^ That is sooo cool! Nice lift - I've never seen that before (but I am new to all this stuff). Awesome race deck flooring as well. Just great is all I can say.

I don't know whose it is, but here's a garage you might appreciate, Lotus and all. There is a thread detailing the construction here:

What brand of lifts are those the look really cool. I'm thinking about installing a lift and would be interested in checking these out.

Is the underneath of that lift's floor solid? If so, it would seem like that would make some things underneath the car hard to work on.

I want to know who makes that lift too. This is the only cantalivered lift I could find Cantilever Lifts at American Car Lift Srvice 866-898-8500

It weighs less then a ton, but you get 190hp. That's like putting a Saturn 5 rocket in a blender.

The lift with the green Alpine on it is a Harding steel lift. This particular one is a storage lift, not for maintenance. They make others but I haven't really dug into their site since I'm pretty well set with the one I have.

Home Garage Car Lift, Auto Storage Lift Manufacturer, Commercial Hydraulic Auto Lift

They do one that goes underground too. How cool is that?

Inground, Subterranean Parking Systems, Custom Automobile Storage System, Automotive Hoist

I heard a rumor that the underground one is around $40K......don't quote me.

Oh man, Tracy, that's just rude.

But hilarious, of course.

My car both sucks and blows.

Question for those of you with the racedeck and similar products-
Is the surface firm enough to use a jack/jackstands on?
