      Wait...this is actually for climbing??

      How do you climb this? How about the portion where you get upside down?


      Its used for bouldering; climbing without ropes usually never above 15 feet.

      I saw the first two pics and knew exactly where you were headed with it. Nice work. Get the chalk bucket out and get to crushing. It looks like you have a pretty good area to do some home training with. I'd definitely invest in some crash pads. Even if its just the portable ones made by mad rock or a company like that.

      I <3 driving.

      All these garages are too clean and organized. Mine is full of grease, dirt, and oil stains. My tools are all there, just completely disorganized. I would do something about it, but as soon as I get everything put away, I need to drag it again in order to use it.

      It's really not that hard. It just takes a lot of forearm strength and climbing shoes.

      I think it only takes two climbing shoes.

      Calif. The car on the left and the garage are still there in Calif. Myself and the Audi are here in PIT enjoying the beautiful weather.

      I'm in the process of designing the layout, storage, lighting, lift, epoxy and everything else for my garage finish as we speak. Ceilings are a hair under 10' and the overall dimensions are 30x22. Here is the current condition:

      The two-bay portion on the right:


      The single bay portion on the left:


      And a view between the two:

      Ahhh... the good ol' Car Lounge. I always enjoy an English lesson from a kid who's my own age.

      Also, two shoes wouldn't last very long.

      I can't believe everyone pointed out the climbing wall!

      Did anyone see the gorgeous Noble parked right there?!

      Awesome garage, awesome car. Well done, sir!

      the climbing wall is to get the tools you put way high up in the room.

      "Hey, can you grab me a breaker bar?"

      "3/8 or 1/2."

      "1/2."

      Sure, hang on. *clapping chalk onto hands..."

      Just to make you guys feel better about your car spending habits, each of those boat engines are Mercury Racing 700SCi's, with a price of about $75k each with drive (props are an extra $5000 EACH), and that orange paint is a $4000 per engine option from Mercury.

      Anyways, back to the garages . . .

      Here's a few more pictures of 2.ooohhh's garage. He'd post them himself, but his password on here has abandoned him.

      The E36 belongs to SpasticDwarf, you know the guy with the E28 that everyone hated on for having a rusted hood.
