DENVER!!

My company is opening an office in Denver and since I am originally from Texas and have family there I was chosen to move this way!

No offense to PA but glad to get out of there,

Anyway, First things first, I am looking to rent or purchase a small warehouse, barn, metal building, large garage, etc. to house my cars and double as the man cave.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.,.

I know winter is coming but would love to get involved in any car events etc.


Thanks!!
Jason

well if I lived in the state where the phillies play and the football coaches are molesters, I'd want to get the hell out of there, too. LOL

Jason,

Welcome to Denver. Glad to have more cool cars in town!
Sorry didnt mean to ignore this. I just didnt have any suggestions.

Your new man cave is great! Lots of great planes fly in and out of there. Saw my first Mclaren race there at a plane/race car show.

Drop me a line and I will be happy to show you around.

Apexes are a lot like relationships. So tough to get right, so easy to see where they went wrong.

The secret to a long life is ------- not dying.

Thanks a bunch, I would have preferred something closer to town but you cant beat the prices there... and there are a lot of car enthusiasts out there as well..

Sure you do Europas are the most bang for your buck! Why they aren't priced with classic Porsches of their era is beyond me...

Yeah, they are fine with storing cars, but you cant run a business from the hangers.

Got the 85 Esprit, its in pieces though

Need help going through the motor and trans and re-installing them into the car... Anyone recommend a mechanic or friendly Lotus person to come help me do it for money, beer and hookers ?

Well maybe not hookers, my wife just gave me a dirty look..

Actually, talk to Vulcan Grey. He should be able to point you in the right direction.
