Is that place on Colerain Avenue still around? That sounds like an interesting concept. I always like hearing new ideas though so I don't mind the bump, lol. I have some ideas in my head that I'd like to make happen someday.

No- From what I'm guessing, the location and liabilities were likely too much to overcome. I'm betting that is the type of business where the location and advertising can easily make/break the business..

There were a couple of these up in Columbus that didn't last. The cost of proper insurance is cost prohibitive based on the liability involved.

it would probably work in an area where garage space is a premium, like most California cities, or Chicago or NYC. In Ohio, too many people have their own garage, so the only real offering is the lift. Most people can make do with jack stands and a creeper and have a basic tools to do what they need. A city where condo/apartment life is the norm is where you'd have a greater market for this idea.

Not sure if referencing EAG, or if that's just the first thing that came to my mind...

Some of them i thought had no end in sight are still going up like crazy. Actually if I was smart I'd cash out of the GT3 and take the profits to roll into the next one but I can't stand the thought of getting rid of it no matter how much I'd put in my pocket as a result.
Hit me up if you want to pay a little bit of "carbitrage". The secret has been out for about 5 yrs on the analog Porsche market, but I don't see any end. I think the only solution is to keep buying. To that point, keep your GT3. You'd only end up rolling it into another P-car which has been equally inflated. It's a 0 sum game.
