Title: Garage decoration
Post by: Spyros on May 25, 2008, 03:46:39 pm
I was wondering.

Do you also decorate your garage ?
Or is it
a) a real mess
b) just a storage place.

I'm trying to separate my restoration works from my garage and to give it a kind of period atmosphere.

For this, rally plates, steering wheels, posters, miniatures ... are usefull.

On the follwing picture, bar the last one, all are Simca Matra related :

If somebody has a cheap oval M530 steering wheel to dispose, drop me a mail  ;)

Still 14 to go ...

Of course, having lots of rally plates, takes time ...

So for me, it's not only a place to store some of my cars

But ?
What about yours ?

Hi Spyros

I like your decorations!

I don't have a garage, and my workshop in the basement is mostly just a mess. I do have a few number plates from cars I have imported on my door, though. Nothing worth a photo, though!

This is mine, I'll have to do some interior pics but you get the idea.

Nice Library.

If you had had a Bagheera, I'd been able to add another book.  ;)
