You should make it byob and turn it into a sports bar type scene with bays in the middle. Make it more of an entertainment venue. You'll sell more in drinks and munchies than the lift fees and tool rentals. That's my thought.
I'd also be concerned about safety issues. People putting their cars on lifts don't always know how to put their cars on lifts... and then they immediately get under them.
I've thought about going to a place like this to change my oil and whatnot but every time I price it out, it's cheaper to pay someone who already has a lift to change my oil since the lift rental is a real significant chunk of that oil change price. Seems like these places cater to bigger jobs but bigger jobs sit in the air for days often enough. Don't know about it as a business model on it's own.
But I think as a car culture kind of place to hang out and work on your cars with other car enthusiasts, there's a niche there.
