    First, I had no garage and I suffered through like most kids with covers over motorcycles, theft and damage and all the joys of leaving expensive things outside.

    My first house (a condo) had a 1-car garage. I was delighed, the motorcycles could live inside, but not much else.

    Then came a two-car garage. The truck still lived outside, but I now had room for tools and even more motorcycles.

    Now, I have a very nice 3-car garage, which is saying something when you consider the neighborhood I live in (1940's homes). But I was thinking, if I had the room for it, what one "thing" would I love to add?

    Lathe?
    Vintage Cafe Racer?
    Dirt Bikes?
    Sports Car?

    The more I thought about it, the more I think I would love to have an FJ40?

    What one thing would add?

    I want enough space for a full wood shop. The wife can have most of the basement for the in-home gym, just leave me enough space for the bike shop.

    X2.. Boooooo.

    I have a 1 car garage now, and all it is for me is storage of crap and tools. I would just love to be able to keep the wifes car and the Tacoma in a garage. But if I had the room for all of that, then a nice boat would be sitting next to it all!
