Hi, I know we all have ambitions to own the cars of our dreams, but if you did get that dream car where would you keep it? I am just completing my new garage which still needs to be fitted out and should be cool when its finished. My ultimate garage will come with the new house I hope to build in a couple of years which will have 6 bays and complete workshop facilities. But lets see the garages of the PistonHead Members. Cmon guys make me jealous.

Here are a couple of examples to get you started.

Yours is about the same size as mine. Once I have a car and workbenches and tools and spare parts in there, there's not a huge amount of room left, but I manage. I am gutted because this is what I'm left with after the house got extended. The garage used to be twice this size. I managed to get four cars in it once rolleyes ............

Mine is 23ft long and 12ft wide. Easily big enough for the Aston, and its a huge garage considering its only a small 3 bed semi.

i visited a PH viper friend a few weeks ago new pad, with the most awesome garage ive ever been in, parking inside the garage for x10 big cars on fancy ceramic tiles, themed stuff all about with a huge sofa,hifi,lcd, racking etc and attached shower and loo but still a working environment with all the kit you could ever need to work on a car.

With further undercover parking for another 16 cars and loads of space outside parking for god know how many vehicles, makes you sick wink
i would post pics but its not my garage

Here are a couple of videos to illustrate what I am talking about, come some of us English guys most have garages like these Americans.

Oh and this is the British guy with the serious garage, but his seems to be more of a museam that a garage, what do you think?

There's a lady with a lambo who has an amazing garage, I'm sure someone will know who i'm talking about as her username escapes me at the moment.

Depends what you call best where we're concerned biggrin We did have ample space for four cars and a few workbenches, and the whole thing was insulated so it was rather nice. In recent years though my Dad's interest in model engineering appears to have taken over, and we have fewer cars in there, sitting next to a laithe, an enormous milling machine and various metal cutters, presses, bench drills and all sorts hehe

Not really a garage but a carport with doors, used to look like this:



Then I added the doors at the front to make it a bit of a garage:




Nothing flash but does the job for now until I can afford to get a proper thing built.

With a car like that your garage should be a shrine. I can see it now, chequer board floors, white walls, racings pics on the walls and an old 40's or 50's petrol pump in the corner.

Every time I post a pic of that car I get the same question. The 964 was made from 89-93, this one was a 1990 and imported from Germany in 2001 and due to a cock up by the DVLA they put it down as first registered in 2001. Took over a year to get it sorted and on to the proper G registration.
