No Polo anymore to drip oil onto the floor!

Seeing those double garages makes me want to get mine knocked back through! The previous owners of our place had part of the existing setup converted into a room...

When it was nice & empty.


Really could do with a cleaning / purge as I've gathered a lot of junk.

The main reason why we moved was for the double garage, my old single garage was a tight squeeze!

I hate hearing of people turning garages into rooms...don't they know how lucky they are? I'd kill for a garage next to my house, instead I have to rent a lockup 5 miles away.

Agreed. I think the problem is for around 80% of car drivers, it is simply an A to B tool rather than something they enjoy. I think I'm right in saying a fair proportion of people with garages use them as a dumping ground or big shed.

On a different note, the S2000 looks lovely Rob. Do you not have a G40 anymore?

I don't, I broke it up for parts a few months ago as I struggled to find time to get to track days due to family commitments.

I always regretting selling my silver s2000 so got a black one to replace the polo.

I do miss the Polo but it was a massive compromise as it wasn't road legal so a waste as it was only used 1 or 2 times a year.

Mine is crap, falling down 60's tiny concrete thing. However I do have one at all and it is dry at least. It will be getting knocked down and rebuilt next year to something much better. The polo just fits in in its current guise.

Although I have a garage at home for bikes, and two others a short distance away for Polos, this is where stuff usually happens 8)

I don't have any really recent ones, but it hasn't changed much since this was taken. I've got a bench at the front now though:



It's the best garage we've ever had, and we've lived in a few places. Cavity walks, double glazing, electric door, loads of space, painted floor and an electric car charging point on the outside.

I didn't realise how big it is until I tried this to test it. Would've gone in, but the desk takes a couple of feet off the end of the garage. That and the parking sensors were going berserk.

Definitely enough space for a 2-post lifter on there  8)

Ah, shame... I bet the S2000 is good fun, though :)
