    The Camaro is a unibody - I used the pinch welds. See photo above. On the GTO, I'd use the frame, lifting at the same spots I'd put jack stands.

    Having swapped the tranny on the Camaro using jack stands, I think it would be just as easy to do it with the QuickJack. I hope I don't have to change a tranny again however.

    Yeah, but not quite the same as the newer stuff. I've never used the pinch on one, I have always caught the front subframe and flat in the rear before the shackle. They flex too much with the wheels on the ground.

    Very cool! I've been considering getting one for my garage. I really wish I would have known Aubaugh's collection was going to be open again. He quit having his car show a while back and I haven't heard when it was opened to the public again. He has a pretty nice collection.

    I don't understand these things

    why not just lift the car with a regular floor jack on the front crossmember....it would get almost as high

    It isn't open to the general public - it was a private tour. One of our group that made the cruise down from Osage, IA had a connection to get us in.

    On a side note - less than a .5 mile from the Aubaugh collection, one of our cruise participants had a brake caliper lock up. Managed to get it unlocked and was able to repair it in Denny's shop attached to his display building.

    Are the hoses a pain to work around? Looks like they would be in the way of a creeper sliding in and out.

    Not to mention you have to go out the front or back since the sides are blocked. No rolling out to grab the wrench you forgot.
