[Healeys] Lift for Healeys

My late father had it built (in addition to a 3-car garage with 
bathroom).  Dad knew shops; he was an auto shop teacher for a while and 
designed the original automotive technology program at DeAnza College in 
Cupertino (I've known several mechanics making a good living after 
graduating from the program).  With his passing, I've inherited the task 
of maintaining all my family's vehicles (hence the need for a lift).  
The 'barn' is a lot more cluttered now, although the fire engine now 
belongs to the FD from which it originally came; one of my first tasks 
is to de-clutter it and effect some repairs.  As it is on a farm, there 
is lots of dust to deal with, as well as an invasion of mice and rats.  
It's a battle.
