I just did it for the picture, as the front of the cars look more interesting than the back. But to answer your question... Sometimes when you back in it gives you more room to open the door if there is a bench, cabinet, or wall in the way.

hmm.. I can barely get the GTI and the Murano both in the garage at the same time. Eventually I'd love to sheetrock it, put in a floor and some cabinets. But still waiting on the cash.

I make sure the garage door is down when I back my SUV into the driveway for loading and unloading. I don't want that nasty exhaust blowing into the garage.

I live on a busy street. Easier just to pull out. I try to catch the traffic right to stop...and back in the driveway.

I wont post my garage pics..just two car with enough room on one side to also put the Elise or Miata in the winter.

Does it count that I bought one of the first parking lifts back in 1991 from Parking Solutions. (now out of business.). I was the first one I knew that had a lift in his garage. Thought I was cool. Now everybody is cool.

If you have a really nice collection, you keep your cars arranged by color. Check out this guy's garage in Japan.

I did some work on my new garage this weekend. What do you all think?

Still thinking about what to do with the floor, maybe racedeck tiles.

I just helped my father finish his garage. Took about 2 months over scattered weekends whenever i could travel to his house. We purchased modular kitchen cabinet set from Home Depot. Came out pretty good and we installed flourescent lighting above the shelves.

Well done!

I considered and explored the Racedeck tiles for a long time. For what it's worth, I really wanted to do the checkered white and black. However, the white tiles are way to difficult to keep clean. If you are considering a checker pattern, even Racedeck would recommend going with the grey as opposed to the white. Good luck.

Here's a bad-quality photo, but I think you'll see where I'm going with this. Note to the purists: there's plenty of room on the other side of the garage for workbenches, tools and chunks of partially-disassembled car.

Todd...I did grey and silver squares in my 'raceshop'*...using 4 tiles per square, thus 2' squares. It came out great and doesn't show dirt.

Did mine about a week ago, still have to decide about the floor. I'm thinking of one of those large mats with the coined finish in forest green.

The Subi is mine, the rest is not. Just thought I would show how a simple garage can be spruced up with a few accessories like a McLaren F1.

Here is my humble abode. The pics are old, the STi was replace with the Elise and the Civic was swapped for the WRX wagon.

Well the wife has said we can’t get the Elise until we build out the garage to have a safe place to put it and the other cars. When I show her these photo's she's gonna just lose it. All I wanted as a larger center bay with a lift, but man that sure nice...
