Is that a CBX there?

Definitly car porn. Minimal dialoge, lots of oohs and aahs coupled (no pun intended) with strong longing for what's on the screen.

You guys are good. Yes, it is a mint 1979 CBX. 7K on the clock. It is a sweet motor, just don't go in with any expectation of handling whatsoever. It is getting a friend soon, a yellow 1976 Goldwing, not as mint in condition, but nice.

Here's a side view of the garage. Having doors on the side of the garage is the greatest thing. Garage dimensions are 75x22 plus the shop in the back is 18x22 with full metal benches.

Garage
Okay, now I am jealous.



That garage in San Diego would house 4 families and cost over $2mil. Maybe not that bad.

#somethingwickedthiswaycomes... the new Origin Noble M and the Origin 7

Zenos E10S for Sale! www.zenosforsale.com

There are some very shady dealers in the Lotus business.

Very cool garage. It's different for sure. Never seen anything like that before with the side garage doors, very nice.

Basic three-car garage. But, I do enjoy the toys!

That looks great!

I have plans for my garage but it will likely be the last in the list of projects that I have. Everyone else post up, I am still looking for ideas.

Astronomy is looking up.

It's been a long battle, but my girlfriend now understands why I insist that everything goes in the basement, except a chosen few articles.

Are you sure that you're not parking your car in your living room by accident?

Nice garage!! Wow! By far the cleanest I've ever seen...

I told my girlfriend to think of the garage as an interior space, not a place to dump our junk. She is actually proud of the garage now.

Yeh, but would a man really have art hanging in his garage and contrasting painted walls.

You guys call those prissy things garages? This is a proper garage (and I say this because I'm insanely jealous of those awesome garages that have been posted )

Form and Function! Yeah, I was wondering if I went a little too "queer eye for the straight guy" for most guy's tastes.
