Car Condo Complex

Who da thunk it. A whole community of people like me. GOt this from Pistonheads.

This is Motorplex, Minneapolis, and it's basically a village of garages - or 'Man Caves' as one owner describes it for the piece on KARE11 local news.

It is, says reporter Boyd Huppert, whose segment is inexplicably called 'Land of 10,000 stories' (we wonder what happens when he's done 10,000 stories) and who speaks with the sort of breathless enthusiasm only American TV reporters can manage, "an automotive condominium complex - for cars!!"

It's like a country club for vehicle enthusiasts, apparently - and we must admit that some of the members' garages do look super-cool, although we're not quite sure if we agree with the owner's assertion that the developments 'looks like an old European village'.

Twice a month they even hold a Sunday Service-style gathering, so if you're ever Minneapolis-way, take a look in...

This is a great idea usually found associated with the newer racetrack complexes. I wish we could find 30-40 acres here in lower CT to make this cost effective.

Title

As a former Minnesotan, I can tell you that the segment is undoubtedly named that because the state slogan is "Land Of 10,000 Lakes"

This hereby concludes the didactic portion of this post.
