Challengers are very good lifts. That is a good price on a commercial unit.

They had a single post lift at the state fair that was on a pallet jack thing for $3K. 10K limit and 6 foot height that ran on 110v. I loved how you could roll it around the shop, under the car, plug it in and lift. Man, I really want a lift.

I had one in my last house with a 10' 6" ceiling. GN on top, Caddy on the bottom. That lift was the best money I ever spent, next to the attorney that I used for the divorce that followed soon after. I'll get another one someday (lift, not wife).

Is that one of those "space-saver" type lifts that's meant for parking 2 cars in 1 garage? Is the floor open so you can work on cars with it?

It's a Rotary Revolution lift. Freestanding, 4-post lift. It is open in the middle - I changed the transmission on that Grand National more times than I'd like to admit. I had a sliding jack tray so I could get the wheels off the ground if need be. I dropped the transmission out of that DTS using it, though it wasn't nearly as easy as it would have been with a 2-post lift. Trouble with a 2-post is that you shouldn't really store with it. The car should be sitting on the wheels if you're going to store it for a period of time, making the 4-post good for winter storage. In my case the GN was a fair weather car so I'd tuck it up top and put my daily driver underneath.
