Stunning. He must have hidden the "real" cars since what he has stashed away is unimpressive....but the lift is impressive!!!!

Unimpressive to say the least. They put the motorhome in backwards, but hey, not complaining. I don't think having dozens of motorcycles that have never been started is anything I need.

I didn't see any dirt under the owners fingernails. Do you think he has as much fun in his garage as we do?

I understand that some people enjoy playing with the toys more than working on them. But I can't understand the need to have that much. $5 million on a garage?!?

Too nice for me. The snowmobile studs and carbides would tear up the floor too much. The race cars wouldn't make it look pretty either.

haha I was thinking the same thing about the cars he has kept "Safe from the elements". The garage attached to the house was pretty vacant in two of the stalls. He must have sold one hell of a software company to have a 5 million dollar garage and 4 separate homes each with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths.

I am ok with everything in the video except the part where the owner says it's the most amazing garage ever built. But hey...whatever gets you out of bed it the morning, right?

Wow, Amazing......... amazing that he only had one tool box to service 100 bikes, 5-6 cars/trucks (shown) and the motorhome. He must've bought the magic Mary Poppins toolbox carpet bag edition, where anything you need you pull out of it.
I've been doing it all wrong all these years.

Hey man, glad your rich and successful but to be honest its kind of disgusting, no grease spots or old oil spills, nu junk or signs on the wall. No misc hardware scattered on the work bench. Looks more like a huge operating room. So white it hurts my eyes. And I bet that landrover with the jerrycans, paddle and collapsible raft gets driven to the mall not the trail.

Uses an Aircraft Elevator to access the Garage.

I am still trying to pick up my jaw.

What a douche. He just did it, "because it makes me feel good". Waste of resources. Stuck on yourself....much?
