I am a slave to marketing. Yup. It’s true. This lotion will make my legs tan without streaks? Done. This hairbrush will make my hair shinier and longer in two weeks? Where are the car keys? Off to the store I go. I love new products. There is a pasta strainer that looks life changing that I’m absolutely in love with. Here’s a new one I bet you haven’t seen. A ‘park and slide’ for the garage. I’m not quite sure what I think about it and it hasn’t captured my heart yet but It’s on it’s way. What do you think?
This contraption was designed so that two cars could fit into one small garage. It allows you to park your car and then push (aka slide) it over to make room for the other. Interesting. Cool! I wonder if they made them for left steering cars and if it would work the same? It doesn’t matter for me. There isn’t enough room in my garage for all my stuff, let alone two cars! Lol.

$5 Million Dollar Underground Garage Elevator
Once you acquire all of your dream cars you will then need a suitable storage place. Check out this video starting at the 2:45 mark. This personal garage lift (dimensions are 60 ft long, 12 ft wide and 15 ft tall) utilizes aircraft carrier elevator technology and lifts the entire courtyard of the estate. The lift has 6 hydraulic rams which run off of an 800 gallon hydraulic reservoir and work in perfect unison with each other. The lift, rated at 250,000 lbs, effortlessly raises 3 vehicles out of the underground garage while a 45 ft RV weighing 53,000 lbs. is parked on the roof. This lift brings you underground to a 6000 sq ft garage capable of housing 9 full size RV’s or 40 cars. This water tight garage is impervious to the elements of nature and also has a built in ventilation system so running car engines will never be a problem. Only setback is that one lift cycle costs $25 in electricity but that is pennies if you can afford this $5 million dollar setup.
