I saw a couple out the other day when we almost hit 50. I'd say they're tucked away now too. 3"-5" here.:(

...and it's not coming out for a while. A white Christmas is nice, but it's not even officially winter yet.

What is the Camaro twice as wide as every other car? It's a normal sized car - there's nothing special about it. If one is going to go through the expense of adding a garage why make one that will actually deter future buyers from buying your house? Future buyers won't want to go through the trouble of tearing down a garage that doesn't fit their normal sized car and rebuild another one, so they are just going to avoid buying the house. I just don't get it.

I know many people who have bought houses without garages, and without fail every one of them intends to build a double car garage. I have never heard of anyone building a single car garage, let alone a garage that can't even fit one car. The difference in expense of building a two car garage versus a single car garage is minimal. Not criticizing - just puzzled.

I wish I had a garage. I am tired of these cats walking on my car. I don't know what to do with them. Shooting them is out of the question for me.

I had a aluminum one throwed up in one day. By others. $3900, Auto roll up door and all. OK for down here in the South. 20'X12'. You have to be careful with the doors. The car is really wide with the long doors open.

When we built our house years ago everyone told me make a big garage. It is a two car attached. Since then I built another one. 24X44 Big enough to store a motor home but currently housing my SS and 66 Mustang convertible. Room for more!

I hear ya, mines been in the garage since day one. Though I can drive it year round, these SC pine trees around here are not automotive friendly with their sap and pine needles.

Ok 1 DERZ SS, sounds like you need to put the "Maro" on a slim fast diet. Make her squeeze her fat @$$ in that garage.

TJBUSA, man how do you squeeze in the drivers door, you must be one skinny dude.

Happy Holidays All

I buy a camaro and get record snow fall for the first time before christmas 1909. God has a funny sense of humor.
