Nahhhhhh, those aren't "garages" at all! They're just showrooms. A garage needs to be a little dangerous, crowded, filled with tools and automotive fluids...maybe even a lift.

Cheers,

They look like they`re "cheque book charlies" garages. I`d love a garage like those but with a hoist and work bay in one section. Turntable is a good idea though.
The first photos from Joseph M look like a car dealers showroom...Is it?

And I suppose the next shot is going to be from the doors back showing a perfect work bench area with huge tool chests of the very best gear.
Makes me insanely jealous. Only thing though is if I had that kind of money my garage would be full of old classics not too many new models. A bit like Jay Leno`s.

Naah, still not my taste. I prefer a cozy garage of the average man. I almost want to throw up at this garage. The wealth makes me nauseous! Plus the cars ain't that cool. Jays garage is much cooler.

Think that needs to be a real GT40, not the faux, modernized, emissions compliant POS with a stereo and seat cushions they were pimping a few years ago. You want comfort, buy a Rolls.

(and one would have to have both the MkI 289 and MkII 427 powered versions dammit! LOL)

Ok guys, these pics I posted are samples of a series of pictures I have of what some claim to be the world's most beautiful (nb. it is clear that 'beauty' is in the eye of the beholder) garages. Thought I'd share some with you.

If you want to see the rest just let me know.

Joseph

I think that we have had enough.
All this shows is someone with a thick checkbook trying to impress someone.

I wouldn't mind seeing some more. I'm in awe. We shouldn't be haters. By the way Tifosi, that's a Maserati, not the Ford GT 40. In one of the earlier photos there is a GT 40 in the garage, but this Maser race car is also shown earlier in a photo with a grey Gran Turismo behind it. Gotta love the Masers.
