    People that have 5 cars.

    My neighbour is single, lives on his own, has 5 cars. And all of them are crap bar one.

    Why? He is but one man! And they are not even classic cars! He would be better of selling 4 of them (keep the Spitfire that's ok) and buying one decent Audi.

    That's what I told him. Because he wants to extend the length of his garage to have 3 cars in and he needs me not to object for planning permission. He will then keep the other 2 cars in council rented garages.

    Sell the crappy Rover's and save money on extending your friggin garage to keep a couple of crap cars in. Arggghhh

    Anyway, I feel better for getting that off my chest.

    Maybe in his mind they're special to him, but are they all tax'd or SORN?

    Talking about me again? Yes, I'm a saddo and actually own 7 cars in total, though 2 are not on the road, and I'm only insured on 4 of them!

    I don't drink or smoke, so I spend my time and monies on my cars - simples.

    Might need to sell a couple soon though, I seriously don't know why I got so many in the first place! lol It's not that I can drive all of them at any one time.

    He has bought 3 of the cars in the last 3 years, 2 Rrovers that the local garage couldn't shift. Nice bloke, but bad taste in cars.

    Anyway, 5 cars for one man, no other family. 2 are SORN.

    He is now looking at a glass garage.

    Its the people that live in a small houses with a driveway for one car, but park 3 others on the street that irritate me. Sometimes you cant move for cars around my way. If you dont have space for 4 cars, then dont have 4 cars!

    I have one neighbour who would rather park his ****ty Nissan on his front lawn than go round the back of his house where he has a perfectly good driveway AND garage! Oh and dont get me started on people who have a garage but dont put the car in it - haha!

    I have a garage and I have never put the car in it.

    It's full of crap. No room for a car.

    So true, garages these days are built for storage only, fitting a car in is a joke, same as parking spaces, who designs these things, we're not all driving smarts are we.
