don't scratch up a Z. Not having seen the garage, I would say that if you pull the two cars in and position them on either end of the garage, then 3 would fit. The ofcoarse you would have to pull the middle car out always no matter what. I dont see how a dollie would make your life easier, but I could be missing something.
I thought wheel dollies would help move the two outboard cars closer to the garage wall. That way I don't have to try and drive the cars close to the wall. Plus, getting out of the driver's side on the far left car would be a bear, as it's driver's door is up against the wall. I figured I'd drive a car into the middle of the garage, put it on wheel dollies, and push it up against the wall. Only the two outboard cars would be on dollies. Of course, like you mentioned, the car in the middle has to come out whenever I want one of the two outboard cars removed.
It can't be all that difficult to get close to the wall without hitting it. It just seems to me that using a dollie would be an awful lot of trouble. Tie a string to each side of the wall about 8 inches away and if you hit the string, don't pull over and further. As far as getting in and out, pull one in forward(right) and back one in (left).
I use wheel dollies for both the Z and the Camaro. Makes for easy storage in the winter. No wasted space. The cars are easily moved into any position you need. Check my site for some pics of the cars on them.
Mark, nice site /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif What type of dollies were you using on our MY Z? How do you get the car on and off them? It looked like they had a tall cradle (lip) to make sure the wheels don't fall off. Do you jack the car up a side at a time?
The Z is easy on and off Takes about 10 minutes. I jack it up a side at a time. I also line the rollers with carpet to cushion the tires. They are Car Mates. I have company name and numbers at home. I'll post them when I get home from work. I think the rollers for the Z where about $225 for four and that included shipping. These are very sturdy and very well made.
I have some dollies called GO-Jacks, they are self jacking and only take about 1-2 minutes to jack up and move the car! Little pricey ($750), but VERY convenient. You just place them around each tire, use the foot pedal to jack the car, then push to where you want it. If you would like some pics, let me know. [email protected]
You wouldn't have to store on the dollies, in 45 secs you can let the car down on the floor, just leaving the dollies in position for raising to move. I would actually think that you would have more "contact" patch on the dollies than the tires on the floor. The rollers used on the GOJack are nice and large. BTW you will need the larger of the two styles. Our tires are too big for the standard units.
