Gorilla Garage

So it's been a long time since I've posted. Life has been busy and I've not had a lot of time to do car stuff, and even less to write blog posts. Nevertheless, there is news afoot in Morrison's Garage. We've moved into an actual garage; namely, Gorilla Garage Tampa. Formerly the site of the Gorilla Theatre (the name kinda stuck) and housed within the walls of a nondescript warehouse in the strip-club and industrial warehouse district of Tampa, the GGT is almost 3000 square feet of space, shared between myself and three other gearhead enthusiasts.

It's nice working with a TON of space. I'm still working on getting my work area set up and sorting out which tools stay at the house and which go to GGT.
A pic from up in the loft. My neighbor is a '61 Austin-Healey 3000 that is in show-winning condition. I think my cheap Jeep and Miata will feel a little inferior.

My plans for the GGT include finishing the Cheap Jeep and possibly getting it ready to sell, sprucing up the BMW a bit and bringing it up to A+ condition, and maybe another engine project for the Miata. I'd also like to purchase and restore an older BMW or Porsche. More to come...
