I am going to buy a garage lift this summer. ANy suggestion on Make and options. I will be stacking a ZR-1 and Z06. I just ordered a high lift garage door to allow for the height.

I do not think that was Frank's, I do not think he has a garage.

I just install a Rotory 9000 lb asymetrical lift today. It is really well built. needed 12.5 ft ouerhead so I put 1.5 ft in the upstairs. As we installed it I think we figured it could be installed in a lower ceiling. Zo6 lives on top and Malibu rest under.

Hemmings always has ads for a number of different lift companies. Be sure you examine an assembled unit to be sure it meets your approval/criteria.

It was my lift that Franks car was on. I bought the Superior because it was the widest one I found. ( got to have room for my Tahoe with the mirrors out, which is just a little wider than a vette. Here's a list of some lift suppliers.

I purchased the Cytech Double park almost 4 years ago & love it. Actually, the guys from stinger left Cytech to start up stinger. Quality of the Cytech Double card was just a bit better when I compared them

Hey Magic, Why is the ZO6's front-left-fender black????? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_confused.gif
That's what happens when you take your new Z06 through a TOUCHLESS car wash and it gets hung up on the track. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_cry.gif $1900 damage. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_cry.gif

I have been using an Autolifters four post lift (about $2700 with all the options) for about 3 years now. It works great. I hate to admit this, but I even use it to check the tire pressure instead of bending over...

I decided on the four-post design because you don't have to get out of your car to put it on the lift, just drive it on and hit the button. And with their optional wheel kit, you can move the lift around (with or without a car on it) because it doesn't need to be bolted to the floor.

It is wide enough for my 3/4-ton van or a four-wheel drive truck with mudder tires.

It took a friend and me about two hours to put together after watching the instruction video.

With a couple of tall jack stands or a bottle jack on the sliding bottle jack tray, you can do anything on it that you can do on a two post lift (and usually easier).

Just my 2 cents. I don't work for them in any way and it was not a freebie.
