I only have 7 1/2 years to go until I retire so, I thought I should get positioned for being on a fixed income. I would like to have a place for car guys to get together and cool cars to reside.

With that in mind, I am renting a 30' X 50' man cave. I have installed climate control, theft and fire alarm capabilities and will have a full bath with a tiled shower.

It will, most likely, take until next April to get it completed as I'm doing it as I can afford it. The alarm system will be finished January 2nd and the floor will be coated (professionally) on Jan 12th. I intend to have two blender pumps, an oil caddy, tireflator and lighted sign (all Sunoco) as well as a late 60's Sun Drop vending machine when all is said and done.

I'll update with pictures as items are completed...

Sounds and looks good but you might want to buy it and not rent it if you are spending that much on it.

I think what he was saying was that, he will be renting out the space to others to have get togethers in it. Sort like a banquet hall. To help him generate revenue during his retirement years.

This looks awesome. Good to see plastic under those gorgeous vettes - nothing worse then parking on unsealed concrete.

Looks like a great joint.... keep the pictures coming as you get it finished.

I guess I'm a little puzzled by this idea. Not sure about renting a nice place decorated with collectables to a bunch of car guys and their good time beer drinking buddies....but maybe its just me..Mark, you need to weigh in again with more details.....GB
