    A lot depends on the work you intend to do older cars a pit is ok to remove a gearbox remove sumps or work on the diff scissor lifts fine for working on brakes and shocks and springs and front wheel drive cars but rear wheel drive cars no so good , probably best option is a 4 post wheel free lift , if you can afford one

    And the handles on the saw were called dogs, hence the one who was the top dog didn't get covered in s**t.

    Just be aware that a 2 post can be tricky to lift a 30's car due to kick ups on the chassis.
