#1 Dream Garage

Post by SEJohnson95 » Wed Feb 11, 2015 10:17 pm

Can't really comment upon car history but can certainly do a literal post on a "dream garage." This is what the garage at home looks like with my current offering taking up an e type shaped space. (peacefully sitting there on a trickle charger as we speak) A few E-type related bits and bobs, there's a couple of classic motor oil cans for decoration hidden out of sight too. A little man cave complete with electric door. (yes I know the picture has slipped, and it's bothering me too :P ) Trouble is it's not technically my garage, otherwise I'd completely redesign it. (or even better, graduate, move out, and eventually do it my own way, but then I will doubtlessly have a lady dictating what I can/can't do :P ) Nevertheless it's a start...

Absolutely killing for a drive in my car, the walking around campus is good for you but strange when you're used to driving yourself everywhere.

Garage is certainly long enough I've measured it before :P no that's how tidy I keep it, I'm a mega organised sort and can't stand mess at all. Mum knows better than to rearrange my garage. The curtain is there so I can have the heater on and keep the heat in whilst I'm in there. Or if dad has the fire burning in the adjoining workshop then it's open :P

Simon, is there any chance you could pop down to Corby next week and sort my garage out for me, you clearly do a better job than I do.

Perhaps one day Ian :P And I'm not on one of those degree courses where one sits down and does nothing all day, in for a tutorial and then been in labs all afternoon. All going very well at the moment though :) I was up until half 1 Tuesday night doing work so I don't do it at the weekend (I'm off home for the day). I'm willing to put the effort in.
