RE: Wah!!!

This thread gave me another idea for a hint:

It has a clear third brake light lens, as factory standard.  

I'll photograph it when I get it back on Wednesday (it's being serviced).

By the time you figure it out, I'll have traded it in on something else

Maybe this?

RE: Wah!!!

Awhile back, I de-badged it so no one knows wtf it is And they do ask.

Of course, I can't say "It's a Volvo" I have to say "It's just a Volvo"

Would be nice if the E mirrors folded up, know what I mean?

No, I don't know what you mean. My mirrors fold.

How many cars is that garage designed for? Looks like it's a 1.5 stall, but a little over sized seeing how it goes back a little bit farther.

RE: Wah!!!

yeah it's about a 1.5, but the door is single-width.  it's tight.

debating revising it or just adding a double to what I have..

Just add a double. You'll love the extra space. The only problem is, if you're a junk collector (which it looks like you're not) the extra space in the garage might trick you into buying more stuff because you have the storage.

Three stalls, a shed out back, the "attic" space above the garage, part of the basement still isn't enough. The space keeps tricking my dad. You wouldn't believe what we have to fit in the winter. Two cars, various tools and cabinets to fit the tools, a lawn tractor, mower, snowblower, two leaf blowers, two weed whackers, a fertilizing spreader, a trailer, a motorcycle, a wheelbarrow, and a bunch of other unnecessary stuff.

RE: Wah!!!

Definitely...collecting junk is fun and easy. 
Hell, the whole country (world?) does it.

We're all hoping eBay will be there to bail us out when we get old.

I'd love to add a double, but it's a delicate operation because it has to be added onto the existing house (I don't want to have to go outside to get to my garage ) and there are restrictive architectural covenants where I now live.  Plus I have to find a decent contractor in this area who doesn't kill me on the price.  I need to cover up the cars when I'm getting an estimate.  Is there a way to cover up the house?  The neighborhood?  

The detailing and car-care mod needs to move this to OT

Re: Wah!!!

Park it in your neighbor's garage when they're not home.
