Wow Ron, the single post is expensive compared to the 4-post, do you think it's worth the price?


Here's my garage:

I haven't seen a single post in a home before - that's amazing. Pricy, but probably worth it since you don't have to worry about the posts being in the way.

Exactly that's why I have the one post lift. At my old house I had a two car garage with two 4 post lifts, and all the post got in the way this is a much better solution except if I had thought about it I would've put the one post on the opposite side so I could pull my car is in front first and still open the door. It would make getting out easier. The way it is now I have to back the cars in on the one post side. I had the 4 post installed first. The originalIntention was to add a one car garage attached to the two car , however we couldn't get it through the city planners so that's why had to add the one post lift later.

I am having a new 2-post chassis lift installed on Tuesday, a Challenger CL10V3. I have plenty of floor space, thankfully, I just am tired of working on the ground.

I have had 4-post lifts in the past and I can easily see reasoning for that single post version. That would make working on the car easier. Work on one side then turn the car around to access the other side. It would make detailing much less tiring as you do not have to bend down.

Not what you expected? did you think I would squander my brand loyalty for a cheap Italian car .....one day when im bald or grey Perhaps but since Im neither of those and I still have brass ***** this is for me.

Although I must say this thing is simply terrifying to ride...130Mph and it lifts the front wheel in 5th gear its a real hoot!

Exactly what has kept me from getting a bike. My wife, still wants me around for some reason

Personally I think it's cause I'm handy with duct tape

Nice, congrats!

Great minds think similarly. Here is my 2001 Ducati 748R:



I also have a 2001 Ducati Monster, a 2015 BMW R1200GS, and am restoring a 1959 Ariel Square Four MKII. Adrenaline comes from varying sources in my garage.

That'd be awesome but my garage layout would force me to put it on the left side, so I'd have to back in to use it, which I *hate* doing

I back in all time w my cars in my garage. Trust me once you get into the habit of it ...it'll be like second nature. You're using the left and right Mirrors like her up and piece of cake! In the beginning it might suck but in not much time you will even prefer it. Plus with that SWEET single post lift its worth it!!!! 😊

We had a few days of rain this week so the Vantage was good and dirty. So I took a little time this morning to give it a bath and took the opportunity to get a few pictures.

This is the 2007 I picked up last week, it now has 10,000 miles on the clock, black with Kestrel Tan interior. Monday it goes to the AM dealer to have the bluetooth iPod retrofit kit installed. Not the best pics but i'll find a better spot and make sure i'm there for better light soon.
