    Translation: You've been sleeping in the basement since your last upgrade.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    Pfft. I'd kill for a workspace even half as organized and well equipped as that. Very nice.

    Nice Shop!
    I like where you have the CK hub tool.
    Top Row! Where the light can showcase it like a piece of art.

    I gotta say, I did hesitate the first time I had to hit mine w/ a hammer.

    ha ha...me too! and my apartment is the size of a shoebox...so i have to move the coffee table to fit the workstand! and really...i'd much rather leave the workstand with gigi on it in the middle of the living room...like a really big center piece...because i'm classy like that ...but then i can't see the tv!

    The larger one is from a private cart race at an indoor track in Germany (3.Platz) a few years ago. Not sure what I was driving as it was my first and only time driving a racing cart. I was there with a bunch of pop stars that I was working for at the time (I'm a sound engineer).
    The small one is from 1976, when I won a heat in the Soap Box Derby.

    Here's a wider shot(complete with the beer), and a shot of how we turn it back into an apartment again.
    Believe it or not, this whole thing was actually my wife's idea! She knew how bummed I was about not having a garage anymore (long story), and our dining room was dead space anyway (we're an eat dinner while sitting on the couch watching TV kind of couple).
