It's a rare option that the original owner ordered. The car was shipped from the factory to Webasto, then on to the dealer for delivery.

Here is the right bay of my two car. This side has a pit in the floor.
This was my car after we pulled it into the shop with my buddys kawasaki KLM250, lol.
When I bought the car the PO had already started parting it out so it was missing the alternator, plug wires and battery.


And this is how I keep it warm in the winter. We have very brutally cold winters here.


I just realized now that I don't really have any good pictures of the whole garage over all.
It's an old shop, but it was built extra sturdy and has a concrete floor and heavy insulation, it works great for this old hillbilly.

1997 Arctic Green LX - bought for $200
Alpine Audio, Air Silencer Delete, FRPP Wires, K&N Panel, Tru-Cool Max, Airlift 1000 bags, class II Draw Tite receiver hitch.
Gathered parts so far: 80mm MAF, 75mm TB, PI heads & intake.

2003 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor, bought for $800, 85,000 miles, new daily driver.

Hang onto that thing, it'll be worth something 20 years from now. Comp orange alone is rare enough

New edge refers to the 99-04 Mustang bodystyle. That's the term Ford coined when it was restyled from the rounded 98s.

This is what I have to look forward to once we move back to SC. Unfortunately priorities will go to the home first as far as money goes, so I may not get to do much initially, but I hope to at least put down the epoxy floor, then we will see what the future holds .

It would be if I'd quit driving it so much. It's the nice weather daily driver.

That garage you built looks awesome!

As far as building a pit, I wouldn't know.
That one was in the floor when we bought the place.
It floods sometimes in the spring, but not for very long.
It sure does come in handy when you need it, but it sucks if you drop a wrench through the engine bay and have to wiggle down between the bumper and the first couple steps.

I have a detached 3.5 car garage that is un-insulated. I just had an electrician put in a 240 breaker and wire up a receptacle outlet for a 5000 watt heater. Does pretty good, warms things up about 20 degrees warmer then outside. This summer I'm going to have the whole thing insulated with drywall put up along with a attic ladder for storage. That will help a lot more for next winter. I'm still not sure what to do with the floor. I'd leaning towards epoxy coating or something similar.

Nice Josh! You have a really nice house AND garage. I'm glad I had a chance to stop by and check the place out.

Definitely go with the epoxy coating or polished concrete. Whatever you go with make sure it will give you some traction when wet. Slick and shiney is pretty but it sucks to drive on.

Do you think you'll have that car back together by July or November? If you can't make Summer Blast in July then plan on the Carolina Thunder meet after Thanksgiving.

Thanks Ron! For sure I'll have to shop around this summer for a quote on the floor with traction, thanks for the heads up. I'm hoping for the spring, but only time will tell. I'd love to make a trip to the east coast, but that will be up to the family whether I can go or not. I'll let you know.

Great.

Carlisle is closer to you than NC but the time frame is shorter with the Ford Nationals being held in early June vs. the Carolina meet in late November.

May be Summer Blast in late July will work better for you. Keep one or all three on the calander and make plans accordingly!

I'm so jealous of all these impressively spacious garages. Here's a few pictures of mine with my Bird shoe-horned into it:

There are literally inches to spare either side of the mirrors when it goes through the door, and about 2 inches gap before its gonna hit my chest at the top of the garage. I have to get out and push it in for the last couple of feet.

Yes, that's my thinking too. It does feel nice to know that when its pouring with rain outside, that the cars tucked up safe in the garage. Weird, I know!

Going to overhaul my 3.5 garage this spring and I've been planing out how it's going to look. Mostly electrical, insulation and drywall with lots of storage is where most of the money is going to be spent. I'm begging the wife for a MaxJack though, wish me luck, lol.

Here are a few drawings.







Rolling on 20's this year!

Hmm you must have missed it...gosh!



I'm going to wire up for a compressor and welder down the road, but it's not in the budget right now. Toys for the future.
