A 2011 A4 allroad which hasn't been driven since March :o Along with the JCW which gets driven on sunny days and the Range Rover which gets driven on wet days.

There's also the Arctic Cat ski doo, the snow blower & ride-on tractor but they're not so photogenic.

Good thread, Sean. :)

No pics from me, but I've a stack of knackered bikes, a Kayak, about 10 tyres on various rims, a rotten MX-5, sometimes a BMW 330ci, sometimes the family bus, and sometimes something I've blagged and daren't leave in the street, a table football table, an unused rowing machine, the corpse of a sedated weathergirl in a roll of carpet I forgot about, a copy of Asian Babes, a gearbox, er, and that's about it. Oh, and some cones. I like cones. I've stolen quite a few of them for some reason.

If we're going to include large bits of cars - I have a couple of Alfa 75 gearboxes in there, too.

Is that the engine from the E92. What mods have you done?

My garage?

A worryingly large box of spare bits left over after building the Caterham.

Several dead mice.

3 carriage lamps from B&Q, still in the boxes, which I haven't quite got round to fitting in about a year or so :uhoh:

The hardtop for a 911 which I put in the corner 7 years ago and haven't touched since (it's just struck me that might be where the mice are living...)

3 sledges, one of which works (or would, if we had snow)

3 spare Caterham race seats.

Oh, and a 996, a Caterham 7, and 5 bikes (various)

My two-car garage cleans up pretty nicely -- so there's no room to hide much of anything. Only one car fits.

But there is something mechanical, electrical and hydraulic hiding under the car:

More fool you for letting her park it (even if it was you, but we won't tell the insurance company).

More seriously, nice thread- I don't have a garage :uhoh:

I have 3 sheds, 2 bbq's, five old bikes, a double pedestal table, 5 years of accounts for 100+firms, assorted garden tools, a punch bag, some cast iron weights, and all the stuff you should have thrown out after a project, but haven't.

I am jealous, Luke how much for the car?

Why? I accept the clever engineering for the lift, but that could have bought you a bigger garage or more cars.

Nice car, but is there any real need to look at its belly more than twice a year?

Hey Jack, seen your thread on Pelican.

Love the garage, and the car! Similar to my 2.8 '69 T...

If you like tinkering, then a hydraulic lift is a godsend - not only can you get under it, but it also makes wheel changes / brake changes really easy and brings the engine up to a height where it's comfortable to work on it.
