Merry Xmas from N.KY!

Beautiful weather. Warm,... by comparison... not a cloud in the sky,... um... if you could see the danged thing, hey but it IS balmy, sort of. If my car was road worthy, I'd go for a drive. With a top or not. Y'all have a great year! Isn't it great that winter's half over already?

Merry Christmas to all, from NW Ohio!!!!

Yes Scott, Winter is only a few days old, officially. I also understand Jim's point quite well, since cold weather doesn't always wait for winter to officially arrive.

Can't wait for Indy!

Merry Christmas from KC. Spitting snow and sleet... but garage heater is on full blast. Might be a good time to get the hardtop fitted and go for a spin... whoops... I mean a drive!
Happy Holidays!

Here's the top- but on another car.

Better keep in good graces with the festive folks on the forum and extend Seasons greetings from the Great White North......home to, apparently, a spurious Santa Claus, who, has impeccable good taste and has chosen to power his sleigh with Blue Oval Power.....all hail the mighty B Cam!

Merry Christmas everyone! From the west like Jim Stable and others. Weather has been nice with some rain here and there well needed.

Christmas came a little early this year, for the Grannis family with a Max Jax lift. People like me with standard garage height are limited to garage lifts. This is great to be able to roll around on that T-bone chair to do work under the GT, and other cars. I installed extra anchors in the floor to move the outer stand out some for bigger cars. Took the pump off the hand cart, mounted it on the wall so that the lines are out of the way. Also made a rack for the lift extensions. Drilled two extra holes in the towers to have two extra positions for the safety pins(different height). Ran the line overhead in the attic. I can unbolt the outside lift stand, and put it by the other one for more space. I can put the garage door down.

Happy time!
