Inc 13 that's a substantial garage - love the pit

I'm lucky enough to have some backyard room - here's my Shed/s story...

Nice sheds. I live close to Perth and have a single drive way and very run down shed, no good for cars but fortunately, near York (100km from Perth) and through work have a long 2 car shed, plus a 460 m2 shed/ hangar. The big shed (Hangar) currenlty houses a 450SEL, 300CE-24, 98 MX-5, 89 906 Ducati, 64 Cessna 182D, and several aircraft not mine (1953 C180, 1950's Winjeel). I will try and send some photos soon, its pretty clean.
If Perth members are keen I could host a w116 car show / drive / onernight stay / have a few beers talk cars etc. Shed has Toilet, shower, beds and a beer fridge!! (yes the cars can partk in undercover overnight)

Hello All,

Great pictures and garages you guys have. I show here my version, which is a city style for a change. I used to live in the country side too and was scared of how a life will be in a city as I moved a couple of years ago to Barcelona. After all it turned out to be quite cool, even with my Benz.


My car sits in an underground parking hall dedicated for old cars in the downtown Barcelona. My spot is next to a 190SL.


I haven't seen yet whether this hidden one is a coupe or cabriolet.


There are few nice looking Pagodas.


Benzes are numerous in this car park.


Nice 500SLC


There is a minimum age requirement of 30 years, which makes my 1976 W116 one of the youngest Benzes. For example my friend's 1987 560SEC was not accepted in!!! What a shame!


If Mercedes is the number one brand there, I think Porsche is the second most represented.


The age range dates quite far back.


This is probably one of the oldest habitants.

Now I am tempted to get one of those nice covers for my car... ;D

Cheers,
Samuli

What a wonderful facility for any city! - Is it expensive?

I also park my Benz in an underground car park, but it is an unofficial arrangement (a friend works there), and it is due to finish in a few months, when I will have to find new lodgings for it...  :-\

Nice collection!

$40 to $80 a week to lease a car park in the Melbourne CBD but you'd be in with the riff raff and security would be a bit touch and go.

Id invest in a car cover, ensures your baby is as clean as when you parked it.

Speaking of underground car parks I did hear a tale about a friend of my son's who accumulated 17 cars and stored them in an underground car park at a suburban shopping centre in Melbourne.

Going back a few posts,

I like the idea of the GTG in the hangar John. 8)

here they are locked up every night (antiquated trading hours over here in Wait Awhile)

any car left in there will probably get towed away to the dump at the owners expense.

I pay about 90€ a month. This section dedicated for classics is actually a bottom floor (-4) of a 4 floor parking. The complex as a whole has a 24/7 guardian at the ground floor. The classic section is additionally secured with a gate that one must ask a key from the guardian. This is a nice thing that the classic section is isolated from the "regular traffic", you get less scratches:). They also claim that there is a humidity control, but you never know... Yes, the cover is on the list of purchases as the car gets a bit dusty after a while.

53 cylinders and 53 litres of engine capacity in the shed (and the beer fridge is hidden from view).
Hopefully the 6.9 will be registered in a few weeks and will post some pics when its done.

Now that's just cool 8)

What's hiding behind the mx5 in pieces?

I'd hate to trump your photo John but I took this one a few weeks back of my supercub and 182 ;D ;D

1973 350SE, my first & fave

Nice, you have a keen eye for aircraft.
The aircraft in pieces (but repainted) is an Australian built CAC CA25 Winjeel (9 cylinder radial), this and the C152 & (1953) C180 are a mates planes.
It's the aircraft that count for a lot of cubic inches ie 985 & 9 cyl, 520 & 6 cyl, 470 & 6 cyl, 234 & 4 cyl.
