A Ferrari Showroom

It’s sort of in fashion to say that “showroom” garages are a good example of excess gone wrong. And I get that line of thinking… I mean, what good is a garage that you can’t get dirty – right? But imagine having the kind of cash that allows a collection of Ferraris and needing a space to keep them all? You wanna grind and weld near a multi-million dollar vintage Ferrari?

Point is, the showroom garage is only lame until you actually need one.

The Atomic Shop: A Working Update

Given that it’s been a year since our last update on the Atomic Garage, I thought it might interesting to have an update of sorts. The above video is actually some test footage taken for another project, but in it you can kind of see how the space has progressed. Admittedly, it’s a mess at the moment as we just finished a major thrash for a local show. After our next clean up, I’ll get some footage of the joint in it’s more typical state – operational like an operating room.

In any case, if you are interested you can read the build thread covering the shop here.

Ryobi Garage Door Opener

So this thing just dropped from Ryobi and from the sounds of it, it’s pretty damned cool. Essentially it’s a 2hp garage door opener that becomes a sort of HUB for your garage. Through a host of modular accessories, you can add a fan, more lights, a cord reel, and even a bluetooth speaker. Admittedly, some of this stuff is just silly but I really admire the innovation of thought here from a company that I’ve never really given much thought too. In my opinion, this could grow into a nice little cottage industry.

Anyway, details from Ryobi here. And yeah, Home Depot is already selling them.

Editor’s Note: This isn’t a review… In fact, I’ve never even seen one of these units. I just got a press release for the thing in my inbox and thought I would feature it.
