Anyone with a wood garage floor?

I'm looking into a pre fab garage for my Chevelle, they come with a wooden floor, and have a 2,000 lb per square foot load capacity. Just wondering if this would hold up being used as a normal garage like working on the car too. To pour a slab for it might be a lot of money.

70 Chevelle SS454
454, 3964291 Heads, Manley Race Flo valves, Crane Valvetrain, 226/236 dur, 534/553 lift
Holley 750, Edelbrock RPM Air Gap, Accel ignition,
TCI TH400 B&M 3000 stall, 3.73 posi, Lakewood traction bars.

13.8 pounds per square inch. I bet a car on jack stands would put divots in your floor. I think you need a stronger floor unless you are just parking your car in there.

Definitely jack stands would require some kind of large board under them to spread the load. Same goes for a jack, too.
