Snow in Georgia?  Not quite what we get in Massachusetts but still disconcerting.

Pure Buick heaven.  I myself had the pleasure of seeing all this in person.  Where is your new thread for your progress on the new garage?

Me too!!!!

Do I  need to swing by in April and document your progress on the new facility ? I say that because from what I saw last time, it's gonna be much more than a garage.

Why Grasshopper, you and your lovely wife are always welcome, as are anybody else here. I should  be finishing up electrical and starting insulation 'bout then so a couple extra hands will come in handy :o :D

'cause the Buicks themselves need so little work.

Actually for the record, about a month or so ago I did try to start a " My Buick Sales and Service Garage" thread and kept getting the -200 error message on half the pictures I tried to upload. Tried it again just now and 9/9 failed . ???

I'm curious about how much of this you drew out and planned in advance of the work?  It's so well proportioned and the colors just seem to work.  Do the double doors have a galvanized metal clad or is that a painted wood?

 

It's very classy and I can't wait to see more of it.

 Thanks Joel, I really appreciate that. Once the picture upload issues are resolved I'll start another thread. I've been taking pictures all along.

I just moved from Athens a couple of years ago. I lived in Winterville. I wonder if I ever saw you at the Varsity cruise-in?

Winterville!?! I'm only about two miles outside the city limits of Winterville, heading toward Hull. I use to take my 54's to the V in the early days but got tired of all the Fords and Chevy's and muscle cars. Love Wagoneers, tried to talk my wife into buying one years ago by telling her how good she would look driving one, dint work. What color is(are) yours, wonder if I ever met you on Cherokee Rd. 😄
