    Give me about a year and I may have some experience with a quick jack style lift. My new garage is wide and deep but only 10ft ceilings. I have to get everything else squared away before I get into a lift.

    For my .02 I will say that the main reason I want a 2 post is I want to get the “floor” out of the way so I can more easily work on a car while standing. With a four post you’re taking the “floor” up with the car and I’m still going to need jacks and trays? No thanks. Not to mention twice the number of steel columns taking up valuable floor space.

    Just came across a Charger I LOVE. Hoping the Newport sells, and I can plan for the Charger garage!

    This is one of them. Has some rust, but also has a 383.

    You do realize that all of your mechanical issues will be duplicated in that car? It may be a little easier to find something reproduced, but IDK for certain. You can build a 68-70 out of a catalog.

    I don't mind mechanical issues, or even body work... heck, I don't mind parts being more than a Bowtie or Blue Oval. I just like knowing parts (even if they're repops) are readily available.

    ...but I am at least making a Mopar my first choice, so I can stick around and poke sticks at old men in hats. :poke:

    We tolerate others who love C Bodies, but settle for lesser cars (@70bigblockdodge :poke:), but keep in mind... now you are only here for our amusement, since you'll have nothing worth saving :lol:.

    Sweet Baby Jesus... The guy who bought the car may have already done bad things. He overheated it, and thinks he blew a head gasket. I may as well start feeding kittens to a Pit Bull.
