I wonder what that thing is between the cab and the smart car. Kinda looks like a home standby generator cabinet.

Yes, it is reopened. They reopened the week before Christmas. Within about 48 hours of them announcing it they were getting filled up for the holiday weekends.

I don’t know for sure. Husband and I decided that we thought it was the motor for the lift for the Smart car.

I missed that. Guess it answers my question whether that is dblr's rig. He doesn't use a lift, his is drive on/drive off.

Most lifts are small hydraulic motors. I bet it is a generator for both the lift and the rig when needed.
