i'd use the garage as long as you can make it work.. before i moved to the house i'm in now i had to rent a storage unit, around 100 a month + 30 or 40 for a parking spot for my trailer. NOW, i use my garage. i'm able to get my 5x10 trailer (unloaded), the wifes car, my truck, 36" walkbehind, 2 21" push mowers, aerator, workbench.. i only keep the truck in the garage when its freezing because of the skid sprayer.

All of your equipment should fit inside one garage area, so your wife can still park in the garage.

If you're running a business, I'd be telling the wife to park the car on the curb. A garage isn't a place for a woman, or her car. LOL

The Chebbie cost 3 more dollars than the Ford did. Both of them had the same number of miles. Now I'm not sure whether I paid too much for the Ford or got a great deal on the Chebbie.

I meant to comment on the truck Richard. Looks nice plus low miles. The 5.3l has a ton of power. I think you'll like it.

Looks like I'll be shopping for another truck. Yesterday a older gentleman fell asleep driving. This was on a highway with a 55mph speed limit. I happen to be sitting in a left turn lane waiting when he had veered over to the left and plowed the side of my truck, then hit the car in front of me shoving them forward, then he hit the car in front of the other which actually took the blunt end. He never hit the brakes so it was a hard hit. My truck is completely beat front to back on the passenger side, blew the back tire (just got a new set for winter only use with wheels and all) wiped out the bed, back door ,front door and peeled the front fender off as well as bent the front end to the point it was toed in a good 6-7 inches! Oh, the rear leaf spring is bent too! I just put a Meyer plow on it too. I have a dozen high profile customers that are zero tolerance clients. If I lose them, I'm losing 10's of 1000's of dollars. You can bet I'll be suing the insurance company for lost wages if I lose the accounts.
