so glad I park in the garage....

So I woke up this morning to the police at my neighbors house. some time last night his car was stolen right out of his driveway, it made me glad I park in the garage all the time .

His car has an after market alarm and GPS tracker on it so he was able to assist police in tracking it down. they are in the process of recovering it now.

just had to share the craziness that happened here today.

I don't understand why people with garages spend tens of thousands on a car and leave it outside while their useless trash fills the garage.

Cause people do not want to throw out that crap as they might need it someday or want to sell it at a garge sale in the next 10-20 years. If you haven't used it in over a year you can get rid of it.

I envy anyone with a garage. Maybe someday I'll be able to stick a car port above my narrow ass driveway. Well that or be able to afford my own place with a garage.

I wish I had a damn garage :(
We have 3 cars in my household, my parents park in the drive way and I have to park on the side of the front yard, and I hate when the kids are outside playing catch or whatever makes me nervous! Over a year now and nothing yet so I am happy so far!

I hate to say it but I have two 2 car garages and still park outside. One garage was converted to an art studio for my wife and one has a driveway that I can't drive down without scraping the bottom of the car. So I park it down the driveway to the garage below the house and I put an alarm and motion activated security light down there.

I feel you. I'm in an apartment complex under a car port. They have garages, but, I can't afford $90 a month extra for it now that I have the car!

Do you remember the movie "Gone in Sixty Seconds"!!!! By the time they try to track the car it is probably in a shipping container. Loaded on a ship headed for Europe or Asia!!

I've got to keep my wife from throwing it out if it hasn't been used in a month. She's got this whole minimalist thing going.

The Navy provides me with a car port right now. My wife's Sonic is in there. The Firebird's out in the cold.

You assume their garages are filled with garbage.

We don't park either of our in the garage.

Probably should.

I park the Camaro in the garage and the Equinox in the driveway. There's not quite enough room for two cars.

Except change Equinox to Silverado. Actually before I even had the Camaro, the Silverado just didn't really fit.

Well he had a 2005 Subaru WRX. Once the cops tracked it down, got the warrant and gained access to the storage unit it was placed in it was already too late.

Video footage at the storage facility shows that they were "alone" with his car for two hours.... the car and several others was completely gutted of everything of value aside from the engine in his car since it took over an hour to reach the storage facility the engine was too hot.

Sad thing is that he just got it back from the shop after getting a new engine installed!

I live in SoCal and never, ever parked a car in the garage. That is until I owned my Camaro! It is such an incredible vehicle, that I have not been able to transition to making it my daily driver. Everybody asks, "Why don't you drive your Camaro?" At which I respond, "It is too good for this world."

It is now one year old with 1,000 miles on it and I love it.
