I'm also working on a 30's/40's Reed 3C that is going to be a real jewel when I'm finished. It looks like it was used for 80 years on a rail yard, but everything was fully functional with no breaks/welds/missing parts/etc. KMScott is working on new jaws for right now.

GJ rules!!

I already wanted to get my garage into better shape, but this thread is just depressing me more about the state of mine. Between the excellent coordination, organization, lifts, etc... mine is sorely lacking by comparison.

I have a question for those of you who have turned your garage space into a workshop that can only hold one car at a time when working on one. Do any of you have more than one "nice" ride, and if so what do you do with it while the garage is full with another one?

I have an 05 M3 that I have always parked in the garage, but I'm picking up a clean title 04 M3 rolling chassis as a project to rehab and bring back to life over the next year or so. Between two M3's a couple spare S54's and two big shelves I'm struggling to figure out how to maximize my space so that I still have bench space. I'm starting to think it might be a good idea to invest in a high quality exterior car cover like a custom fit Covercraft WeatherShield HD. So when I'm actively working on one of the cars I can have the other in the driveway for potentially extended periods but still protected from the elements.

That's a tough call. I was in a similar situation for the last three years at my old house. My poor Jeep took a beating sitting outside in the Wisconsin winters on the parking pad. I'm afraid there's no good answer but to build a bigger garage!!

You all have some nice work spaces. I might borrow some ideas from you all.
Here is mine.

It's a tough problem. But I think the benefits of having real space to work make it worth solving. I made a simple canopy over a section of the driveway for my BMW. My Jeep and my wife's car both get parked out in the open air.
