Winter Coming Soon!

Recommended Posts

Heavy rain this morning.  No garage for the S Type as she is too big to fit into a 1980 garage.  At least the rain is giving the car a good rinse.  I am halfway through giving the car a good wax for the winter -- resume when it is dry.  I will check out any boot leaks when the rain stops!

Hi Peter,

What is it about 1980s garages - do you think the planners decided they would never be used for cars anyway, so shrunk them. I used to have a Mercedes A Class, which would have squeezed in, but I would have had to spend the night in the car as no room to open the door! No chance of getting near it with an XF!

Hi Jon,

My garage was built in 1980 in a extension by the previous owner and my wife's cars always fitted in, as did my Rover 400. But now that my wife has a Toyota Yaris it won't fit in unless the wing mirrors are folded in.and even then there is only two inches on either side.  I have even bought about widening the door, but the Yaris has a reversing camera so getting out can be done without too much of a problem.  I think cars are a bit wider than they used to be.
