While browsing JDM Ego recently I came across a post about a picture Jay had picked up from someone he knew in Japan. I took a look at the site and in doing so, realized I knew the guy too. Turns out he was an old school customer of ours from the early 2000’s when he was building his then-new bigeye WRX. We had sourced a rare Alles-Create kit for the car (still one of the cleanest kits ever!).

Robert’s site is Back From Leave and is an awesome place to check out some fantastic photographs from all over the Japanese car culture. He also sells the prints too via SmugMug, which is pretty cool.

Anyway I picked up a print for Jon as had it blown up and sent direct to his house. Jon had always been a huge Mazda guy, and I know how much he pines away for another RX7 project. So I figured this garage shot would be a nice addition to his own garage (where is Mazdaspeed3 resides)

One of the dopest garages I’ve ever seen…

10 Mar

Saw this posted by a user from NY on My350z. I know there are only two cars shown but if you are truly a car guy then you should also be a garage guy. Therefore you can appreciate how dope this layout is.

My father and I just finished building a new garage for us to work in and him to store his cars. I spend a good amount of time here detailing as well. It took us about two years if you include planning.

It is in a residential neighborhood so zoning and planning of this project was tricky. We wanted it to look like a house from the street as to not upset our neighbors or draw attention.

The downstairs is a 9 car garage with storage, bathroom, etc.. You can’t see it from the front but if you follow the driveway to the back of the house there are 3 large garage doors.

Upstairs is a 2500 sqft. 3 br. 2 bath apartment (with its own 1 car garage) that we wanted to rent out but can’t due to the town regulations.

These pictures were taken quickly at the end of construction. We still needed to do some cleanup at this point.
