There is an organization near Ann Arbor called the "Ypsi Yacht Club"
that operates as a community garage. They have a couple of warehouses
linked together and rent storage and work bays to members. They also
have a collection of community tools (Air, a lift, etc.). It's a
really cool setup for auto enthusiasts and there were a lot of neat
projects going on when I visited their open house.
One of the things I wondered was how they handled insurance, since
they had a big collection of fairly high-dollar cars there and people
working with power tools are bound to injure themselves or somebody
