Is that a Maserati dealer or a wealthy owner?

Having an MC 12 ...

I also love the BMW 2002 one of my fav cars all time.

As a indoor designer I love your pictures!

I got to get rid of my Maserati Spyder due to the crisis ...

would you get a garage specifically made so the marroquians and blacks cannot steal wealth?

It's certainly not fancy, but my father and I just finished building our garage which I think is fairly unique in layout at least (and I mean building in the most literal of senses, we did everything but pour the floor).
  • 7 bays, L-shaped, storage for eight cars unstacked
  • The inside of the L is the courtyard, if you will, and is a huge asphalt apron faced by:
    • The long inside of the L has four bays (two 8x8, two 9x9)
    • The short inside of the L is the lift bay with 12' ceilings and a 10x10 door ( the lift went live this Sunday in fact)
  • You can drive through the garage as bay #2 has a door on the back wall as well
  • If you drive into the long side of the L from the end (as the letter is oriented that's down from the top) there is the sixth door, which allows storage of up to three vehicles in a line behind and perpendicular to the main four. The first vehicle pulled in that way will then be located within the:
  • 32' x 20' shop, which has 200A service, amongst other amenities.
The inside has not even been started, it is just a shell with only the roof insulated. Inside work will commence in the Spring, to fully insulate the building and sheetrock the shop at least. What we do with the rest remains to be seen. Never really had a garage before. It's pretty cool to blast out of. ~ H

Sounds like a great project. Post your progress in either of these groups and you'll get questions, suggestions, and maybe some inspiration:

www.garageforums.com
www.garagejournal.com

I don't drop in regularly, but the first one seems to be the most active.

That is no BMW 2002.... rather, it's an insanely rare colored Alpina CSL... These 'dream' garages are missing the drum kits and Marshall stacks in the corners...

Alpinas are dope. A guy not too far from me has an Alpina B7.

I have come to think Jay Lenno's garage is pretty close to perfect ... The Alpina is stunning But whether the Blue one is a Alpina or "just" a 3.0CSL with alpina wheels ...

Pic attached. The second bay from the inside corner is the bay with the drive-through. This was from early September or so -- the S54 M Roadster is visible but my Jag is not. Forget where it was. ~ H

Can't really go wrong either way.

There's an incredible concours-level resto-mod CSL out there with an S86 M6 motor and 4 wheel disc brakes, under Alpina softlines. It's absolutely beautiful too, and carries an identical look minus the Alpina decals. It was in Bimmer magazine some years ago and I'm sure its been on something else, it's probably one of my favorite cars of all time.

Nice. Nice collection of cars, too.
