Haha, I must agree with you. Not functional. But heck I must admit must be nice to have at the house.

it is beautiful, but i agree with mike. it's totally over done and a bit overkill. if we could afford all those cars, sure... but really, i'd rather have my oversized 3 car garage, with lift, great workshop tools, etc.

That place is bigger than my house. I think the turn table is useless as-is. It'd be better in the bedroom with weirdo lighting, a round bed and fuzzy pillows. Like Austin Powers. Yeah, Baby!

haha so true.

Now if it was filled with rare 555 subaru rally cars... or something I'd be more impressed.

I'll stick with my 3 car garage.

Not too shabby. It has some nice features that would make a nice garage. I like the idea of the "show piece" turntable, if you have a racer or a second car that is your pimping car, or ego car. The indirect lighting is a nice touch for a garage, lights up the areas decently for what most need it for. Add in some high output flourescent fixtures in the recessed ceiling area on a seperate switch for "work time" and a couple in floor lifts THEN you got a sweet garage.

Dude bought not one, but TWO Prowlers? More money than brains!

It's pretty, but...where are the tools? I was expecting a dream workshop, I guess, not a museum.

Watch out for the nip guns. Unless you're hairy enough to disable them.

I'd so take that first one. It looks a lot like what I had in mind for my 3car garage.

by first one I mean first link in your last post, the VW one.

I'd be quite content with a garage, and a house connected to it. I'd be even more content if I owned them both!

Hopefully in the summer I'll be adding a sub-panel for added power and a nice, big compressor... You can't see the ceiling, but there's a retractable power cord, 1x 4' ballast and 2x 8' ballasts with "daylight" bulbs in them (my garage literally lights up the neighbors house across the street when the door is open at night)!
