Look again, that aint no mopar under the hood :p
It is on the outside. :dawg:

The Hooter's show I went to last weekend had a '69 Roadrunner with a 500+ ci blown Hemi. It's a good thing it was white, or I may have left a stain on the fender. :lol:

One thing I've learned is that the slower cars only want to 'bracket race' ;)
Why do you think I do it! :mc3:

Very nice, and that garage is freakin' amazing.

Ya thanks for the garage compliments. It was a major undertaking. I have some before and after shots that really say it all.

I honestly have less than 3k in the whole restoration, of course I did all of it myself too since the garage is 30x30 and it would've been hella expensive to have anyone else do it.

I had huge cracks and humps in teh concrete so I rented a concrete grinder and smoothed it out then put that garage floor epoxy paint on it. Since its a block wall garage I put 1" foam boards on the walls with a vapor barrier and bought a bunch of T-111 wood exterior siding and tapcon'd it to the walls thru the foam. I did all of the drop ceilng and lighting. There are 15 overhead 4-bulb fixtures in there! I like light. NOTHING worse than working on shit in the dark. I bought all those cabinets from Lowe's, they're cheaper than buying 'garage' cabinets. They're super heavy duty and I put wheels on everything including the workbench. I can empty the garage in 10 minutes by simply rolling everything outside and hosing it out!

I'll post some more pics of it before and after.

Ok here's some before and after shots. I was able to keep my existing drop-down stairs to the attic. I replaced both garage doors and the entry door with steel insulated doors. I blocked in the two windows at the back. Nobody needs to see what's in here. The before pics are exactly how the garage was when I bought it 3 yrs ago.. it was deplorable and completely trashed by the previous owners. I waited all my life to get a 30x30 garage and I'll be damned if I was gonna let it look like that!

New Coleman cabinets ALL on wheels:


Floor after Quikrete Epoxy covering:


I added central heating and air conditioning to it too, which I haven't taken pictures of yet. I put a 2ton
AC unit on a central heating unit just like a house.

I have more pics of my Duster Project and my Garage project on my own site:
