Not an inch to spare!

I think I could fit a sheet of paper or two if I needed to, but that’s about it!

i have a similar issue .. my solution was to modify the Garage roof space to then add a 4 Post Lift .. this has been the best present ever to myself .. now the Lift stores a car up the top & no need to grovel under the car for inspection & repairs ;)

It's free standing ,legs you drive over. You just use the built in Jack to lift it slightly and can move it about

Unfortunately, as you can see in the pic, I have no room to go up. But we are taking about getting an addition and one option is to put it where the garage is today and rebuild the garage. So, if I can get it a few feet deeper, I’ll be golden!
