absolutely, full size. I digged it with a shovel 10+ years ago. BTW I´m 33. This room used to keep horses 50 years ago but about a year ago I sold my little 1 man company and insulated and now I can use it as a garage.

I´ll add a pics of that when floor was finished but walls were waiting...btw, same bug :D :

Yep, same bug.
I bought this car without an engine and put some poop together (1585cc) of used parts...It pulled 13s@quarter with some garret turbo and MS1
Then I painted it and went to type 4 engine and biturbo...unfortunatly still 13s then I chopped it, then I repainted it, then I trited first v8 engine and it pulled to 11s, then I added some nos and pulled 10s, then I turbocharged it and it made 9s so....I´m waiting for next year.

Some old pics:
