So for the last three or so years the G8/Commodore has been living in a Public Storage area as I've had no garage at the old house. Got the keys to the new house on Friday, and I move in officially at the end of the week. The first area already put together?

The garage of course! My car cleaning and care supplies all neatly on their shelves, various car parts I removed while converting from the G8 to the Commodore on other shelves.

I don't even have a mattress in the house, but the car has its bed laid out.

Hey, priorities man. Now to find a good battery tender.

Hey, priorities man.

Yep, I've been there too. During my last racing adventure in the mid '90s, I bought a house just for the garage and a place to store the trailer. My race car cost more than my house did. I had a 13" TV and a 3 foot tall refrigerator, but I spent $1,000 per weekend racing. My tow vehicle was an '86 Corvette. I ran 9 events in the first 10 weeks I owned the race car. It's all about priorities.

When we bought our house, I wouldn't even look at houses that didn't have a two car garage. Maybe in a few years I can build a bigger shop (with insulation and heat!!!)

Definite bonus points for style! Don't know that I've ever SEEN a Corvette being used as a tow vehicle, but it'd sure intimidate me if I were the competition.

LOL

What's intimidating is being at an endurance race for $500 beater crap-can cars, towed there behind a $500 beater crap-can pick-up on a U-Haul dolly, and taking only an easy-up tent thingy for weather protection, and parking between two $700,000 professional racing trailers.
