My shop took me 30 years as well. I have a few of those bud lite platinum bottles around too. 6% and low calorie is a tough combination to beat. Mine are not neatly arranged in a chandelier though. I do have some good signs.....

Hey Wallster - noticed you had a gas price sign of 62 9/10. If you have real, noncorn gas at that price I'll bring a tanker up.

A friend of mine had a sunoco station a while back and when we were cleaning out the building he gave me all of his old signage he had in the storage room upstairs. I stuck them on the walls cause they looked cool. I remember when gas was under a buck a gallon, it was just hitting a dollar when I started driving (good old lead filled gasoline too).

Now your shop looks real and well used. Wally's is just to clean. Looks good
But more a place to sit around, shoot the Bull and watch the came or race.

Garry's looks like all of mine have. Yet I knew where everything was.
I generally would have a container or out building next to the shop for
storage. Like parts and parts books and manuals and stuff I didn't want
filled with sanding dust or dirt. Like rebuilt cards and trannies and such.

I guess I am just saying that I don't see Wally's as useable to me as I
do Garry's

Wow, I just love all of the shops, no washing machines or girl stuff in site. A place just for you guys. And Wallster a heater, way cool. Nice job on the sign by the way.

Don't get me wrong guys. I love the Wallster man cave and would love to have it.
But I could never work in it and keep it so clean, Not ever. It's more like a Den.
For like cleaning guns, setting up the reloading bench and other mostly clean fun. It so very sweet and yes I am sooo jealous.
