Here are some pictures of our garage. The couch was the first
of the things I made.
We had a 1959 Ford Galaxie retractable hardtop convertible,
indian turquoise and white. We had the couch painted the same
turquoise color. After that I made the 1959 Ford booth out of
a 59 Ford Galaxie. The seats are a restaurant booth and I used
a pedestal table. The dash is hooked up to a battery and the
AM tube type radio, cigarette lighter and all the dash lights
work. The back up lights are hooked to the accessory switch and
come on when the key is turned on. The headlights are hooked
up to the light switch and also have a dimmer switch for low
and high beams.
The bar is made out of a 59 Ford Country Sedan station wagon.
It is also hooked up to ac/dc converter and the switches are
mounted in the gas filler door. One for the tag & park lights
and the one for the backup lights.
We have 3 Seeburg jukeboxes (1958,1960 & 1962 models).
The Rockola is a repo of the Whurlizer bubbler. The 1957 T-bird
jukebox is an NSM Songbird. After selection of record it reeves
up and the lights flash in the exhaust ports, then it plays a
record. If it is not played every 15 minutes it reeves up and
plays one of the top ten songs.
We used to have 4 convertibles, 59 Ford Retractable, 65 Ford
Galaxie, 63 Buick Wildcat and a 64 Buick Wildcat also a matching
63 Wildcat 2 door hardtop. Also a 57 Ford Fairlane, 59 Ford Galaxie
2 door hardtop, 59 Ford Galaxie 4 door sedan. We also had a 54
Kaiser. We have sold all of them except the 57 Ford. It's Inca
gold & colonial white.
After we sold the cars we had extra garage spaces so I painted
the floor with 3 ft. black and white squares. The garage also
has central air and heat. We are always looking for something
else to add to it.
If you're ever out cruising and get in the area, stop by.
