that I no longer use this car canopy:
as a home for any of my vehicles anymore! I couldn't decide whether to leave it up or take it down, but Mother Nature made that decision for me!

is that a white Ford Fairlane over there to the right? It looks a bit like the '66 Ford Fairlane I owned in 1984. We called it "Old Smokey" because it had bad valves.

Nah, that poor old beast is my '68 Dart. Here's another pic of it, under the 5 or so inches of snow we got today:

I can kind of see how it might have been my '66 Ford Fairlane. It just didn't quite look exactly like the Fairlane and now I see why.
You certainly got a nice dumping of snow!

Well, my wife and I are 2 weeks away from signing for the new house. We go on friday to buy new appliances for the new house, but the really good part, because of the fridge, washer, & dryer we are buying, we get a $250 gift card from the store, which in turn is going to be used to buy all the garage floor epoxy & paint for the walls. I just need to determine about the floor temp for the epxoy. the walls I'm going to be doing the weekend right after signing.
I do have one question. Which do you prefer... Belt Drive or Screw Drive for the garage door openers. We have our choice, but not sure what the difference is. I told my wife I think the belt drive is quieter, but the screw drive will hold up longer over time.
Only downside is because of the outside ground and air temps, they cannot put the blacktop down for the driveway. So we are going to have stones for the time being.

Too bad I couldn't build one of those garages - but I'd probably would have to tear down the buildings next to mine. I wanna try that speckled garage floor stuff as well. First thing is I have to replace my driveway. It's a mess. I bet it's the same one that was laid down in 1955 when my place was built.

house in Willcox, AZ. Congratulations, odie!
I'm putting my pool table under the carport and we're gonna place white lattice around the front of the carport. The laundry room is outside the main part of the house. You have to walk outside the kitchen door to get to the laundry room.
We are going to tear out the old carpeting and paint the walls. We're also going to put in new flooring, window coverings and an entire white vinyl fencing package. Gonna be a lot of work but it'll be worth it in the end.

once everything is all said and done (house and paints) I will put together a video tour and put it up on YouTube like I did with our townhouse that is for sale (yes, I put a video under title on youtube to get more people looking at the house for sale). I can't tell you how many calls our realitor has received asking about the townhouse, it's just crazy.

I put up videos of our used cars on Youtube and get calls on them from that as well.
I haven't done it in a while because I am not in charge of used cars sales anymore but I am trying to get back into it.

Well we decided to go with the belt drive over the screw drive. Also we are going to get the battery back-up (in case of power outages). I just need to decide on 1/3hp or 1/2 hp. I can hear the Tool Man saying "We will just add a Saab 900 turbo motor on the door assembly and arr ar ar".
