Garage pics

I need motivation and my garage sucks. Basic stuff, mine is concrete floor, open stud walls, open rafter ceiling. Blah...

Show me pics of your garage.

There are some very shady dealers in the Lotus business.

Randy,

A good friend of mine is in the garage remodeling business. He is the owner and founder of the Ultimate Garage. He helped me out with my shop and it's a featured garage on his web site.

Go to http://ultimategarage.com/motorspt.htm

Here's a peek,
Mitch

Follow Lotus enthusiasts, did I mention that I could live in this garage. It is one of the finest in the country, well I'm sure it ranks way up there. Notice the Floor, walls and skylights

Holy crap.. I don't know if I should be sick with jealousy or feel like I have seen car porn. Wow....

I need more normal garages. Trying to make mine look like those would be like putting lipstick on a pig.

Randy,

I hope this is some motivation for you and others. There really is nothing like having a nice garage for your toys. Your Elise would sure feel happy in a nice new garage.

My friend Steve D'Gerolamo specializes in high end tools and high end garages. His clients are a who's who in the fashion and film industries. There's nothing he can't do when it comes to garages. His garages are simply the best I have ever seen period.

Here's his web site for those of you interested in the Ultimage Garage. Click the workshop design button for some nice ideas.

Best Wishes for a better garage,
Mitch

Randy,

LOL, I'm laughing off my seat

Ok, Even if you don't want your garage to look like the Taj Mahal, my friend Steve could still give you some nice suggestions.

Best Wishes,
Mitch

1Fast,

When you get your Elise you can come down and check the shop out anytime. My Blue Race car lives inside.

Best Wishes,
Mitch

Naw, Mitch.. think of how much work it would be to clean motor oil and tire tracks out of the White Grout between the floor tiles!

With a garage like that, I'd move my car and tools into the living room and put the dining table in the garage..

Ground,

LOL, your right. I probably would do the same. Look, just do what my friend Steve did. Get all the dirty work done before the nice floor and walls are installed .

Well At least now I know why those Ferrari dealers charge tens of thousands of dollars for service. You have to pull the entire motor just to do a cam timing adjustment
