Feb 24, 2008 update to the Innocenti Mini Cooper project car

Skating Around

The Gojaks make parking a breeze. Sliding the Mini into place is a one-person, five-minute operation.
Yes, everything looks better on eight-spoke wheels.
And last weekend the Mini participated in the New Smyrna Beach cruise-in. The only parking spot we could find was near the other classic Mini—what are the odds?

It’s been a while since we’ve mentioned our Gojaks, but we’re still in love with them. They essentially turned our two-car garage into a three-car garage, and we can park the Mini without moving all of the other cars out into the driveway. The whole parking process can be done in about five minutes.

We got our Gojaks from Moss Motors, where they retail for $369.95 per pair. We figured that was less expensive than expanding the garage, and they’re easier to use than a floor jack and those el cheapo car skates.

Just be careful moving them. My TR3 has a front fender ding from an incident with my workbench, as it was being spun around to return to service. Arggggggg!

Yeah, the dollies roll really easily, which I guess is good and bad. I picture that one day I'll send the car down my driveway by accident.

It's hard to see in the photo, but there's a 2x2 behind the car to act as a bumper of sorts for the dolly.
