    Movin on up

    Lookie what I finally bought after 10 years of wanting one. When the garage was ordered 10 years ago, it was purchased with one of these in mind. I'm so very happy... no more jacking cars up just to check something simple.

    I couldn't agree more I've only owned this one for a short time.... 36 years this August

    After installing the lift and putting the Cougar on it, I walked underneath it and just stood there with a huge grin on my face No more jacking up the car for a simple task.

    The first major project which utilizes the lift may be a tranny removal from the Cougar again Should have put wingnuts on that thing years ago. I hate that AOD with a passion. If I wasn't into it for about $3,000, I'd remove it and find a lake to toss it in. I wish Alan or Dan lived closer.

    PS, I can't believe you have that Cougar sitting over top of your number one garage queen, what about the oil spots!!

    I hope I don't jinx myself, but my lift seemed to have fixed my transmission replacement needs. Although, I did also spring for the transmission jack. So if you didn't get get the jack, your results may differ

    I know you are already asking yourself why you waited so long.

    Nope, but I doubt I will have time to do anything else.
