If it's not a rude question, what are the trophies for ?

I sort of fill the same Phil, but I don't fill I'm a failier at all. I may not be as rich as some but I am richer than others. I have done what I can in my life & I am happy with that. But my Garage is not up to the standards within this post and its shy.

A once proud owner of a double garage and workshop area and now half of my garage has been taken over by my wife as her "Lady Room." And she's extend her room into the garden this summer. I'm just left with a double garage half of which is filled with kids bikes and crap. Some how I feel I have failed :(.

He Stefan,

the Red Bull? Or the Heineken? :-)

What kind of beer do you prefer?

Tell me your favorite beer and i will make sure its in

the fridge when you visit my place.

Sorry guys,

i've just got the feeling it has been a mistake to post my pics here.

It was NOT my target to make some of you feel bad.

But this is the Garage thread, and thats why i have posted them.

I am working very hard since years.

To own such a Garage was my dream all the times.

My family and me we are living "Lotus".

Once again a big SORRY ...

I wasn't complaining I was just saying I am happy with what I have. Please don't feel bad as then if you do I will fill bad, and we both don't want that. :thumbsup:

Haa Haa Haa Bibs I knew you took a photo, and that's when it looked its best.

We are all loving it mate! I wasn't entirely serious about feeling bad, although my garage is a horrible mess.

You should not apologise, you have inspired me to work harder! :thumbup:

And look at the cars I have had, I am pretty lucky.

I love your garage pictures, Dragi. It's just so good to see so many Lotus in such good condition in one place. The Elite looks particularly tasty. Thanks for posting.

I actually thought Dragi's pics were of Mr.Clements garage...so similar I guess?...

Seriously though Dragi that is one nice set up, a serious Lotus nut by the looks of things!

If I'm ever able to afford a house, I can totally see myself telling the sales agent that maximum garage-space is a high priority in the features I want! :thumbsup:

The story I told my wife is when I was single and shopping for a house I told the real estate agent I was looking for a 2 car garage with some sort of house attached. (not knowing that I would inherit 3 stepdaughters several years later as part of my marriage). If I had a crystal ball at the time of the purchase I might have paid a bit more attention to the "house" part. It was a bit of a tight squeeze while they grew up here and only one is still living with us until her Marine hubby returns from the Mideast. Currently the Esprit is on one side and a snowmobile trailer with 2 sleds on the other (which I hope to sell off soon). It's been a bit of a pain when I recently worked on both of the other stepdaughter's cars and had to remove the sled trailer and juggle cars about to work inside out of the cold and wind. I guess wifey will get the other spot once the snowmobiles go and I'll still park in front of the Esprit garage door outside.

Some of these garages are sickening! one day... when i can afford the thousands of pounds to put a deposit down on a house, the garage will be of paramount importance.

I really want to do my own "Grand Design" sort of thing so i can map out my own plan for Esprit storage. I recal seeing in an architectual journal a house where the garage intruded into the living space via means of a glass compartment.... so the car was intergral to the house.

Currently however I really want a place to store the car but to also use as a studio for painting and to stash all my paint... Dream on!

This plan is even further from fruition living in London.....Houses with at least of street parking are required and the car lives under a cover all the time;

My housemate rents a garage for his Karmann Ghia which costs him somewhere between £1200 and £2000 per year..... if i paid that i simply could not afford to have the car! a guess i dont have to worry about rust... and the car gets used all the time so outside is not too bad.

Drove past a house in Tiburon, California at the weekend. It was right on the sea front and didn't have a garage but under the carport were a Ferrari 355 and a Dino. On the drive to the right of the carport was another exotic I couldn't make out under a car cover.
