Nice. I bought house recently and don't have a garage. This is what I aspire to when I get around to building one!

I won't hijack this thread (imagine if you were reading this to see garage pictures, as I was) but if there's a car picture thread someone can point me at, I'm happy to populate it. Or you can have a gander at https://www.instagram.com/yonly65/ , which has pictures of all our cars, including the particularly wild-looking FINA Senna I've been waiting for for a year...

Very cool. Thanks for sharing.

Saw the Senna the other day -

What we we need more than pictures is the sound track to your XX and FXX-K. They are both simply epic and hearing the noise bounce off the walls at Spa as you downshift for turn one is beyond belief. Congratulations!!

Love the way the track map lights up at night - great touch!
And thank you for the videos - I really don’t think there’s a better sound in this world than the downshift on those cars. Fantastic!!

Dropping into the 1:26's at Road Atlanta is impressive!
I seem to recall the production car lap record at Road Atlanta in late 2015 by a Viper ACR at 1:26.54
Probst later took that record down with a 1:26.45 in a 2019 ZR1

Nothing fancy like most of them. I kicked the other 2 cars out for the weekend, as I just brought my GT3 home today!

Thank you for sharing the pics and videos.

Who's faster on track...you or your wife? Be honest

Any Porsches?

That Fiorano on the floor? Really nice touch if so. Enjoy!

It depends on the track. She was faster at Hockenheim and Jerez. I was faster at Road Atlanta.

And, literally as of today, yes! I'll make a proper garage picture of it presently.

It is. That section of the garage is a shrine to Ferrari.

Your garage plan is done so well. Is it underground?

Also, is there some history/reason behind the choice of yellow for the cars? I personally love yellow on sports cars.

Thank you for sharing.

Just put in two single-arm lifts from American Custom. Very high quality. Still part way through the garage

remodel but you get the idea.
