    I just figure out where it would be best at then i look out both side windows and find something that wouldnt be moving and i tell myself you need to be lined up with this object. like now i use the mower out the side of the passenger window and say that i need to be lined up with the middle of the seat. then that gives me pleanty of room to walk all the way around the vehicle if id have to

    Tahoe doesn't get garage luxury, but when parking my dads car I try to do pretty much what [MENTION=57079]1953bowtieguy[/MENTION] does or if the orange home depot bucket in front of the car I use that and if I tap it I know I'm in perfect.

    Same situation only during bad storms or being fixed. Usually my dad's Insight gets the garage. Have fun with the rebuild keep me posted.

    ya im not sure if i want to rebuild it yet or get another engine. If id rebuild it i would prolly turn it into a 383 stroker with a hydrollic roller cam and lifters in it. But then if i get a new engine from GM Preformance I would just get a 350 for about 2200 or 2500. And no matter what i need to replace my oil cooler lines cuz they leak like a siv. and i would paint the valve covers red, maybe get hooker headers, hopefully i can get a cold air intake for her and a throttle body spacer. Also since she is in the garage i was going to replace my grille cuz i dont like it anymore. im going back to the painted grille, maybe billet. dont know yet just want the chrome one gone.

    My truck doesn't fit in the garage. However, in previous years when I owned vehicles that would fit in the garage I would carefully park the vehicle where I wanted it and then hang a tennis ball from the ceiling in such a way that it touched the windshield and was aligned with the rear view mirror.

    2 nails, some string, and a tennis ball are cheap and it's a reliable system. :)
