Wow..I wish I could relate to the word cheap around here.
Luckily I do know classic car guys that own shops or have lifts on their own properties.
But I have to beg often...throw them numerous bottles of wine a beer kegs at x-mas and with all so busy here, and lifts tied up with their own going projects..it is a hope and wait scenario,..keep calling, till someone finally does me a favor & gives me 3 hours of lift time. This sucks. I feel like I'm a complete outsider, (not a multi millionaire like these lucky guys)
If I showed u some photos of the many private rich guy'* club here...It would blow ur mind! A few even have their own working Texaco antique globe pump fuel stations on their properties! One guy beside the gas station, has his own real 1950'* general store with all the trimmings...And then wait until u get to see the real 3 story 15,000 sq ft car collections NO BS...it is here, all within 100 miles of Vancouver.
If U look in the left rear of this photo outside u can see the circular driveway with dual tall fuel pumps and General Store.
One thing they all share in common. Extreme Wealth, on acreage, secluded private entrances, large house, underground access to buildings, full pro security, sprinkler systems, and here comes the real kicker...they are all OCD types and generally flip out on purchasing other collectables like Coca-Cola fridges bars, and every car guys dream signs in mint condition, old player whurlitzers, juke boxes, toy collections and so much more..SICKENING,,,U feel very small so quick..but these guys are so down to earth once u know them...fascinating..how a pig farmer, or Dealership owner or Welcome to Hollywood North ** ..can have so much!
What some of the car guys here own is simply crazy! including air planes on strip and helicopters on site.
I often find their places overwhelming when I visit.
Truth be known...I hope I never have all that stuff to maintain & worry about! -keep it simple is best.
