Thanks! Lovin' your truck. My wife things that we need a pickup (which we probably do). I'm trying to convince her that a late-50s Chevy with a Napco would be a good, err, investment ;)
I hear you about space, though! We live in a 1912 bungalow right now, which was originally built with a one-"car" garage, detached. Some time in the '50s, a second bay was added, but it's completely separate from the original. They both open into an alleyway behind the house, and to make matters worse, the local PUC put a power pole five feet off the corner of the garage. Getting out isn't too bad. Getting it back in goes something like this: drive in from the right side, turn right into the neighbor's parking space to clear the fence immediately opposite the garage door, start a backwards turn into the garage, stop halfway so that you don't hit the far wall, crank right and pull forward almost into the fence, crank left to get into the bay. THEN you have to back it all the way to the rear wall, get out, close the rolling door, and manually roll the car forward to within about an inch of the door. That will give you about twelve inches to open the access door and squeeze back out, into the backyard.
