Many of us questioned the utility of Eastwood’s Tilt-A-Car when we wrote about it, but TM reader and photo pool member fabridan43 gives the concept the ultimate Toolmonger thumbs-up: he made his own.

In the photo above you see his 1962 Sprite project on its side, offering easy access to the bottom of the car for restoration work. And you can see that there’s no way a lift would fit in his shop — assuming he could spare the cash from his restoration project to buy one.

As far as I’m concerned, this is case closed: these things clearly have a place in the shop.

    In a similar fashion, this type of drive-on mega ramp looks easy enough to construct at home for a couple hundred $$$ in steel and your own labor. http://www.restorationramps.co.uk/
