I was just going to comment that some of these garages look too clean, as if all the tools were just for show until I saw the last pic.

My plain-vanilla 328 doesn't get a spot in my garage. I made a little cover to go over it's piece of the driveway.



And since I do carpentry, metal fab and car work in my garage (and since the garage is only 20x22), I gave up one of the parking spaces for a more functional setup.



Every garage should have a workbench. Or two. Or ten.



Two fold-down from the wall where the car is parked.



One is hydraulically raised and comes up out of the floor:





It also works pretty well as a lift for my rear-engine track car:



Here's a video about the lift.



Everything in the garage is home-made, repurposed or second-hand. I did all the work myself, including laying the tile and installing the lift. The total budget for the flooring, cabinets, benches and lift was $3,500. (I found the lift on ebay for $455, and put another $215 into tool rental, concrete and tiles.)





And if that isn't enough over-documentation,

here's the video about the garage.

And while I know it looks all girly and clean in the pictures, it's a working garage that gets plenty messy:


Dream garage! Nice work

Thanks very much, guys.

The one thing that there's no fix for is that it's a small garage. The 911 is such a compact car that it kind of hides it. But when I put the 328 in it, you can see just how much I've built up right to where the car needs to be.

We've got garage parking for 5 and with the house only being 4 years old it's still pretty empty....

3 doors to the left and 2 doors to the right:

Sick garage man... but how does that lift work on other cars other than the Porsche? Wouldn't the lift make contact with the exhaust piping on front engine cars? (I'm at work, unable to see your videos).

Thanks. I have blocks that can support the jacking points on my other cars. But the lift was put in for the 911, which is the only car I do regular work on.

Still, I've had the Jeep up on it. The BMW has the service agreement for another couple of years.

Can't be compared to some of the dream setups already posted, but pretty functional considering it's also my gym and located in SoCal, near the beach.
I'm not complaining.





Built a custom shelf to store my graveyard of car parts (i.e. - front and rear bumpers, sideskirts, and trunk.
Plus, now you know where I keep my 100 octane fuel.

Thanks, man. Yeah, it's a rear unit, 3 on-a-lot townhouse. I remember apartment life was tough in the garage department. Way too small, plus my neighbor actually put a nice scratch in my wife's VW Rabbit a week after we got it because they had the garage spot right next to us.
