Big cars and small garages

Big cars and small garages

I’ve taken to parking the bigger cars outside my garage. Our garage fits 2 small cars, and the Territory is enormous. I had 4 inches either side of Jen’s car, and when she tried backing out, she left some paint on the side of the garage (good job it wasn’t on the Territory!) So, it’s the early morning driveway shuffle for me as Jen leaves for work. And that’s the problem with a lot of 70s and 80s houses. You’d think the double garages would be designed for enormous Holdens, Fords, or Yank tanks, but they’re designed for one Ford Anglia (who the hell needs a second car?), and a work bench for the real man’s DIY proclivities. Pity then I can’t get the skillsaw to the Territory and make it 6 inches narrower.

I’ve always liked the shape of the Mazda6, it blends futuristic with sporty, in a cool Dr Who in Adidas...
