I countrd 3 bottles of gas (NOS) on the shelf and I would bet there is 1 or 2 in the car. So yes I would say it's fast too.

kmcginty 03-14-2007 12:34 PM

Since the NOS was on the boat half of the garage, I just assumed it was in the boat to get the bigger riders out of the water <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>

johnsvt 03-14-2007 1:08 PM

Actually, I have the ghetto house! My wife forbid me from taking pictures of the rest. I have a total 6 NOS bottles stashed throughout the home. Hey, I have a Malibu I don't need no stinkin' NOS to get riders out of the water I just kept those bottles around when I was looking at the X-1,JK. The spoiler...have no idea if it works...the plate is outdated car goes quicker than 9's.

g_miller 03-15-2007 8:52 AM

Ok, I'm a little embarrassed to show these pics but in my defence my garage is usually spotless. I'm a remodel contractor and we just lost our spot for our dumpster and our place to store all of our tools and misc job material. Also, my garage used to be a carport. There is no foundation. The person I bought the place from added walls between the brick pillars. Now thats GHETTO! I will be rebuilding the garage next summer.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/424460.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/424461.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/424462.jpg" alt="Upload">

outbackls 03-15-2007 6:54 PM

Ryan, <BR>Believe me I tried... we ordered the boat with a swing-away tongue and I take the platform off. The garage is just too small! <BR> <BR>Tom and Sinko, <BR>Thanks for keeping me in the running I appriciate the support! <BR> <BR>Aaron, <BR>Unfortunately I've been there too. I was tryin to keep this on the down low as there may be a code violation involved <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0> but in an effort to keep my 1st place standing I guess I have to divulge everything. <BR> <BR>When we bought our first boat I assesed my storage situation and quickly found that I needed to add a small addition to the front of the garage. I checked the measurements of the boat and trailer on the web and measured the garage, yep we need the addition. My garage had a 2 foot overhang in the front so I thought why not just extend that portion. So I did, making sure it was going to accommodate my new boat. I even added a wider garage door (10ft) than what was previously on it. I sided the extension to match what was on it and all looked great... until that fateful day I tried to push it back in and close the door in the rain. It was then I discovered the WAKEPLATE<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/angry.gif" border=0>! So you know the rest of my story now... except for the fact that there is no footings under the front addition I made. Don't tell anyone! <BR> <BR>Here is a pic of the front, sorry it's dark outside, and real ghetto owners don't have electric in their garages <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>. <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/424649.jpg" alt="Upload">

chqwakeboarder 03-17-2007 10:09 AM

We personally avoided the whole ghetto garage thing. How you may ask...well, we own a garage that is bigger than the house that we live in. I guess the toys need more room than we do anyway. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

soak_up_the_sun 03-17-2007 2:29 PM

Here's ours. Boat and Suburban in the main garage, and the Bronco stuffed into the area that is supposed to be for lawnmowers and other assorted "gems". We can't open that garage door because all the drywall is standing between it and the Bronco. <BR>We had to modify the rear wall of ours as well, but we did get it finished off. The bumpout in the basement is the "other side". <BR>It'll be better when we can put the boat back in the dock. Soon, I hope!<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/425058.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/425059.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/425060.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/425061.jpg" alt="Upload">

rich_g 03-17-2007 5:50 PM

Lauri, I remember your thread about the basement bumpout -- it turned out nice. <BR> <BR>Unfortunately, I think you will receive an automatic disqualification from this contest for having two aumotive vehicles in your garage. Just having one (the Suburban) proves you are way more organized than many of the entries already. Face it, some of these guys are pros. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

soak_up_the_sun 03-17-2007 6:07 PM

Don't hold the nascar decals against me, ok? The basement is my husbands "room". He'll finish it up someday. <BR>Rich, you are probably right about the vehicles disqualifying me. You should see the rest of the basement! Now, if we were having a contest on that, I would win hands down <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>

walt 03-17-2007 6:55 PM

The Nascar decals are going to send Grant over the edge.

soak_up_the_sun 03-17-2007 7:00 PM

Maybe that's why I posted them?<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0> <BR>They actually send me over the edge too, but what can I do? The rest of the house and basement are mine, heck, the boat is mine! Gotta let the guy have something, don't I?

grant_west 03-17-2007 7:11 PM

Lauri: Thats a pretty good one: I like all the crap stuffed under the Bronco. <BR>The weight room looks pretty good. Nascar included. You should not have included pic's of the weight room becaus is look pretty nice, LOL But I like how you can see threw the top of the wall in the weight room is the back side of the Ghetto garage so that was a good idea to included a pic of that. <BR> <BR>Should the winner be picked for the most crap in the garage, Or the special mods to just fit in the garage Like the sanger and mobius. I like the Mod to the back of the garage like the blue Mobius has. But the garages with so much crap in them that its hard to tell there is a boat in there have a special place in my heart.

soak_up_the_sun 03-17-2007 7:39 PM

Yes, I agree, Jeff has the upper hand with his garage mod. That's kind of how ours started, but, at least it goes into another room, not the backyard. <BR>Good job on that Jeff! <BR>Grant, you see all the drywall on the side of the Bronco? Yeah, that's for finishing up, someday. I think it would be just great to have a ceiling!

bmh2208 03-17-2007 9:12 PM

Not nearly as good as the others, but at times my garage is just about as full as the others.

soak_up_the_sun 03-18-2007 5:59 AM

Ryan, it's a 75 with a 351 Windsor, fuel injected. It needs to have a little work done on it. My husband has had it longer than he has had me, and we've been married 24 years tomorrow. <BR>Post a pic of yours!

outbackls 03-18-2007 6:14 AM

Lauri, Thanks for the nod but I gotta give you guys props as well cuz that is pretty crazy. I'm glad we have a detached garage and my "modification" did not tie into my house! I would have had to actually hire some help or something to get that done. The wife would have never let me be ghetto if it touched the house. At least you guys can get one of your daily drivers in the garage with your boat. Both my truck and the wifes mini van are in the driveway all year long. We don't have a dock to even take the boat to in the summer. The wife really loves the boat in Jan and Feb when she has to scrape her windows to go to work. Like I said before... you do what you gotta do right<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>! <BR> <BR>Hey Brandon, <BR>What are you doin to your Nauti that the windshield is off and it looks like the bow cusions are pulled out? If you want to compete with Lauri and I you're gonna need to step it up cuz that looks pretty organized to me.

bmh2208 03-18-2007 11:22 AM

Jeff....it's time for spring cleaning (see PN thread). <BR> <BR>It might be organized, but if you look at all the boxes on both sides of the garage, they are full of crap that I can't part with, and probably never will use. There is no organization going on with the boxes, just a means of packing more stuff in a given space. You should see the attic above the garage.....

clayton191 03-18-2007 1:04 PM
