Default The Living Room Garage Gallery



How's this for eccentric? Some guy in Tokyo with a ton of money needed a comfortable house for his family and his Lambos. You know, a modern affair with all the greatest mid-century appointmen...

I like it... if I had the bucks I'd have one if I lived way down in the big city.

You car collection becomes conversation pieces at the dinner parties.

Not really that big a deal. A few choice words to my wife and, just like that, I can be living in the garage, next to my car.

Damn! Why didn't I think of that?



Oh yeah, because I can't afford the mod or the Lambo

Need to real careful spotting the Lambo on the elevator. Seems real tight and would at least retract the mirrors.

It looks cool but I had a few questions.

Could this be legal here (usa)?

I mean, to have a car in the actual living space? What about fumes? What town would pass this?

Im just curious. Towns nowadays are so strict. I would find it hard to believe this could get done. Well at least in my town. They'd laugh me out of the building department as they threw my plans in the round file.

Cool in a 007 sort of way. In reality it's sort of cheesy. The fact that it's a Lambo doesn't help either.

I rarely do this, but I'm going to have to call the FAIL card on you for that. Lambo - especially early Countach's are epic cars (unless you were born after 1980).

Oh, don't get me wrong. I like Lambos. I still think they have a certain cheese factor though. If I had to pick, I'd get a Miura as it's a little more toned down.

Here's someone (Holger Schubert) who managed to do it recently in Los Angeles, so it is possible!

Very nice.

What is it about Countach owners and their need for vertical parking?
