I should point out you can neglect a VN commodore without too much problems. Just do periodic maintenance and rotary will be all good.

Yeah I'd have to disagree with the VN comment. How many rotaries have had rebuilds before being 23 years old?
Answer: all of them.

So I couldn't help but revive this thread, I've been looking at warehouses for ages, and I came across this...

In Richmond Victoria. So anyone got a lazy 3.5M for an Auszcar headquarters?

I reckon there's a Ferrari F40, a HQ Monaro and Porsche 911 (966?) under those covers.

NB: Look at the model cars in the office. Spot anything?

I believe this man cave may be owed by a group of entrepreneurs who started an Internet server business from scratch and sold it around 2-3 years ago for a cool $80m.
Sunday nights formula 1 viewing night, which they beam from their offices in the neighbouring suburb...

Yeah I like Grungy warehouses more than polished 'white walls everywhere' type places.

Saved quite a few on Pinterest here.

Some fantastic garages there. I am with you on the grungy ones. Heaps of old timber beams, or brick walls with flaking paint. Very cool, although I love the practicality of Jack Olsen's 12 gauge garage. Everything well thought out and using all of the space to it's fullest. I need to take some time off of working on the cars, to sort out the garage a bit more. I have the benefit of living in the boonies, so I have a big garage, but having the space has made me lazy and not sorting it out properly.

Yeah 12 gauge garage is a favorite of mine, the scissor lift works with the 911 engine in the rear.
