Bear in mind it's a relatively small apartment garage, but my tool collection is quite good. That drawer is opened because I wanted to show off my new socket organizers.

**Note the shopvac on the wall, it counts as wall swag lol**

I got a new tool box yesterday. Hung up my old e92 poster. I didn't have time to organize my tools and put them in it yet. I really dig the deeper drawers. I have a couple of brief case sized tool boxes that I take with me for track days and off-roading and they will be housed in the lower drawer and out of the way. Another simple thing I'm really glad to have is this box has a power strip and houses all my chargers. This helps because I didn't really have a place for all the chargers to sit. I had to take them out, charge, then put them away.

How about an actual M1 as "wall swag"?


I think this guy wins.

Any interest in selling the Masi? Size 60/61? 1970ish?

Awesome garage!

my garage is adjacent to my theater. If I open up my door, I can see my car.

I have 5.1.2 setup though. I think we have the same Epson projector and same Vivo mount.

Some insight....


Here's a little history of my motorsport attendance....

Riverside International Raceway:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rivers...tional_Raceway

From the late 60's through the mid 70's....I saw SCCA Group 7 Can Am cars with Denny Hulme, Bruce McLaren, Peter Revson; The International Race of Champions, NASCAR cars on the road course, etc.

Ontario Motor Speedway:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ontario_Motor_Speedway
----
Attended the inaugural California 500 Indy Car race in 1970; it was "Indy West" meaning it was an exact replica of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway; attended NASCAR on the 2.5 mile oval.
----
Laguna Seca Raceway:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weathe...ay_Laguna_Seca
Early to mid 90's....It was THE most incredible FIM GP bikes in the world....500 cc 2 stroke machines that were ROCKETS....Wayne Rainey on the Marlboro Roberts Yamaha....Mick Doohan on the Rothmans Honda....Kevin Schwantz on the Lucky Strike Suzuki....they would achieve nearly 190 mph on the uphill back-straight before braking for the world famous Corkscrew turn; went to multiple CART Indy Car races here as well

haha - There's rich and then there is those type of people. Had a chance to talk to someone who has wealthy friends into cars. Was interesting to see a glimpse into the lives of wealthy car enthusiasts.

I've been around some people who get new exotic cars regularly but that switching pails in comparison to people who spend more than exotic car costs just to drive their car for an event across the pond.

These are my favorite kind of threads. Sometimes, checking out the garages is just as fun as seeing the cars themselves. My garage is about 1100 sq ft and 4 bays. I use all 4 to park my cars in, but the middle 2 is where I work/detail my cars. It's currently a completely blank canvas, but I've finally started painting the walls because having all this free time and reading Garage Journal gave me some motivation. Also still organizing everything including deciding what to put on the peg board.





Got some posters I've had for years that I'd like to maybe frame and hang up. Also plan on putting one of my old TV's in there. Really excited.

Thanks! Lots of eBay searches! I bought the vinyl 4’x1’ ones from a1-graphics on eBay and their prices and quality are really good. The Nurburgring and Spa banners were purchased in Europe. The 2001 Ferrari F1 flag was found on eBay and probably my favorite. Love the Jenson Button flag since he’s my favorite driver. The M Art Car flags were found on eBay and I framed the print.
