You're talking about that bitchin' Porsche/Cracker crest on the wall, right? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)


Wait a second... I can see it coming:
"Hey Chris, how about a Chevy/Craker logo...?"

When's your birthday? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

Nice Tony-

lifts are a must have assuming you have the space which you do.

Love that wall art..what a centerpiece.

Thanks everyone for your kind words! it will make reassembly of the teener so much easier and finally get to do it within my own garage - yay!

Mike: This lift is really unique and might be a good option for many others here as well. The "highlights" are detailed below - pretty cool lift that has only been on the market for a few months.

1) They come in three variations for lower ceiling heights: 8'10" - 9'10" - 12'6"!!!
2) The columns and base-plates are half size/footprint - I wanted maximum room to move around the lift.
3) The cylinder is located in the crossmember - not the column (allowing it to be so narrow.
4) There are four 3/8" cables - two per side.
5) Bi-metric arms; kind of a cross offering both symmetric and asymmetric benefits.
6) Double safety lock mechanisms (I like duplicity).
7) Probably MOST important it ANSI/ALI ALCTV certified!
8) Price is very reasonable - this one was $2700 - waaaaay less than the Rotary I was also considering!
9) The one downside is it is a 7K lift - my 1-ton truck is a no-go.
