What??? No basement? Cheap ass. lol It is actually becoming popular up here to use spancrete garage floors and have a storage area under the garage ,(when it is attached to the home) or if you have the exposed lower level have a second garage below your first. Maybe its just me but it looks a little small. Zoning issues?

A bit over 1000 sqft with no pillars. I had to shave 8 feet off the backside due to utility easements. The compromise was lose 8 feet of back side and get to keep 12 foot ceilings for storage lifts and rafter storage or cut the ceilings down to 8 feet and keep 6 of the 8 feet.

With this I can put in 3 four post storage lifts if I want and hold 8 cars and still have room for motor breakdowns and benchwork. Right now I am planning on only keeping 4 cars in it at any time

Looks like you have it all planned out. I wish I had a garage like that. Hell I wish I had four cars to put in a garage like that. Post pics of the cars pleaseeeeeeee. I have been on a search for a older benz with characture. I saw a 1972 280 sel Brown in very good original condition while on the way back from camping this weekend with the kids. My oldest saw it first, "Dad look at that old Mercedes!!!" We parked a spot away to give her room and the kids looked at it with there hands in there pockets like they were taught. The owner came back to his car after about 20 mins while we were hanging out while my wife did some shopping and we talked. He had her since new and it has never been in even a fender bender and had 189k miles on it. Very nice guy, he is a member of the wisconsin mb club and was trying to recruit me, The membership is a little steep and looking at the pictures from events it looks like the average age of members is 70. Not thats old but it's older then me...

It will be using a gray water system that pulls from gutters, pool, house, etc. It will be high and under pressure to provide free water without dealing with an extended plumbing routing with all those trees and their roots.

That is the problem with some of the Benz clubs. I am one of the youngest members of the Kentucky group and I passed 50 a long time ago.

The cars are in various states, two are going through complete rebuilds, a 92 500E and a 68 280SEc Coupe. The others are either drivers or in rollling resto. I don't have any cars [other than the ones in pieces] that I would not drive from Kentucky to Seattle and back.

Here is the 68 as it was coming home Day1. It is now "in process" but has not been touched in 9 months.

Towing is the very dependable 99 GMC Sierra SLT with 98K miles. It has towed cars from Phili, NOLA, Atlanta, Cleveland, Chicago and somewhere in West Virginia.

The people cannot tolerate dependable workhorses. The GMC will be scrapped while a useless Ferrari will live forever. Such is life and such is why we have the choices we have regarding politics.
