    Inflatable paint booth

    Looks like an astro jump for car junkies.

    Single, center post, in ground garage lift

    A floor jack can lift the body up, slide a 4x6 post under the body, sticking out past the body enough for the lift arms. Only way to go if you work by yourself. One person can tear down and build a car by themselves. with the help of a lift. If the lift is wide enough, and set up in the right spot, you can back a trailer under the lift. Set the body down, and haul to the blaster. A two post lift is a must have for any shop building/restoring cars.

    Single, center post, in ground garage lift

    Some times it looks like the bodies are just floating in the air, like magic, or a two post lift. A person has to put some thought in lifting rotten old wooded bodies. Getting the lift arms under the body some times does not work. I love watching shops on TV using 8 people to set bodies on finished cars. So easy to roll a finished frame under a lifted body, and lower it down. Glad I am not paying the labor of a 8 person crew.

    Tough to lift car bodies off of the frame with that lift.

    Single, center post, in ground garage lift

    Tough to lift things off of something, with a single post lift coming out of the ground. I have three lifts, if I could only have one, it would be a two post. A one guy/gal shop can do anything by themselves with the help of a two post lift.

    Pre War Cars - how fast is fast?

    This must have been in my car a really long time.

    This is from under the front seat frame. It was found tearing down my 1947 Hudson coupe. $100.00 dollars seems like a nice prize for 1951. https://www.dollartimes.com/inflation/inflation.php?amount=100&year=1951

    Are you saying that all of those splits/cracks in the fenders, were caused by poor road quality?

    Depends on the road.

    Hudson's, Fighter planes and engines

    The 34 Hudson will stay just the way it is. Has a cool look, all stock. Just going to get it running good, and drive it. Here is the museum. https://warhawkairmuseum.org/
