I say the same thing. Been looking at the portable/tent garages. Not sure if I want a Harbor Freight one or a Rhino-lining type deal. One cost about as low as $200-$400 and the other about $900 with 2 options of warranties and built-in options to select from.

I discovered a flaw that shows itself through the stereo.

I drove in the rain.

I got gas.

I cleaned the convertible top with some Mequires Convertible Top Cleaner.

Now I'm about to watch a storm roll in and remove my hard work.

I have considered an aluminum frames awning just for the cars. I can enclose it later if I want something a little more weather proof.

I have 2 ShelterLogic portable garages. Cost with shipping about $600 each.
1st one-got 5 years ago - still doing great
2nd one-got 4 years ago - top started wearing through in about 2 1/2 years. Bought replacement top for about $200 a year ago. Hoping it lasts as long as my first one.
They do have heavier weight material but more expensive.

Put air in the leaky patched tire. On my way to work this morning the rears lost traction while I was getting on it a little bit in the rain.

(Last Friday) Went to my local 1/8th mile drag strip and got matched up with a McLaren 650S. Best race I will ever lose. I did beat him off the line though, which caused a super-massive nuclear explosion of adrenaline to be sent coursing through my body... I'll post a vid tomorrow.

Played with another Mustang this morning on the the way to work. I didn't think he'd bite but he did!

I finally had a chance to put 303 on my convertible top. Hopefully the chemical stays on the top as well as it did on my hands. I've washed my hands twice now with Dawn dish detergent (my go to soap for cleaning greasy hands) and the 303 is still there.

Dirty car first time on the ground with the Vossen wheels. Supper 4 X 4 mode with air suspension all up.



The money shot, suspension aired out.



More pictures to follow once the car is cleaned up.

That would be better. A neighbor in our community has one, but I would want to close it. Sucks living in a townhouse never enough space. This isn't permanent anyway. We are saving to move out to Arizona (California if you speak to the boss lady) or Slower Lower; which is what we call anything below our canal not an actual location in DE. We love that the rent we pay is about 300 or so cheaper. Landlord is friend of the family.

I keep considering an oil separator. I drive slower than my grandmother though. I doubt I need one.
