Readers Rides Post pics, specs and build-up stories of your vehicles - or even your garages here. Also interesting stuff about your 'daily drivers' etc. or interesting cars you have seen on your travels, even motors-based TV shows you can recommend. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

Fun to be cracking on with it again.. Other half has never seen it together and the boy (6) wants one of his own. Cannot wait to be out driving her again, really missed it.
Garage sounds awesome dude! I'm relegated to the front drive with my toys now as we converted our garage into a private tattoo studio for the Mrs to work from.

Ace!

only downside of the big garage is sometimes I find the other half has just dumped stuff.... I take it back out and dump it back in the house, reason being that I am working on stuff in the garage, and whatever you dump in there will end up covered in dust/metal from grinder etc. She has pretty much given up now and accepts its my man cave.

Only 'problem' is she now wants a bug/bus.. Could be worse but 2 in there will be a bit of a squeeze.
