    Having a bit of a whizz round seeing as the old kitchen is cluttering up the garage waiting for me to go to the tip.

    I found this lurking at the back

    Not strange, but I know I have an JDM Integra Type R DC2 bootlid with no wiper in my garage, I sold it on fleabay complete for a nice sum for a friend, but the guy turned up is a tiny car and couldn't transport it away, he ended up just taking the boot spoiler off and still paid me the full amount after travelling 150miles+.

    Just to add I didn't get the sign from a drunken night out. I wok for the local authority as a sign and lighting engineer. That sign just ended up in the boot of my car and after a week I got fed up so slung it in my garage.

    Most unusual for where I live but my car in the garage, along with various tools and my mountian bikes.

    Keep getting asked by the neighbours how I managed to fit the car + bikes etc in, bored of saying well its the same size of yours, so just reply well I just threw all the **** out that I no longer need !

    I've got in my single garage:
    Hanging from the roof, two windsurfers, masts and 3 sails; 4 bikes (1 mountain, 2 road, 1 timetrial); a set of ladders. On the floor I've got another 2 bikes (road plus a folding bike); my kit car; a tumble drier & 4 kitchen cupboards. Plus all the usual pots of paint, tools etc. All in all a bit of a squeeze.

    My neighbours thought I was strange when I moved in as the first room I sorted out was the garage!

    I don't have a garage, but my shed is home to a variety of car bits and pieces; headlights and taillights from a 1989 VW Polo, Ford Escort Mk3 front and rear fog switches, Ford Orion Mk2 left-hand track control arm, a seized Mk2 Golf GTI low-tone horn ... and loads of other rubbish. I just can't bring myself to throw it away!

    Kevlar Body armour and helmet, 20 Bottles of Black Tower (2005 Vintage) and a computer, same as the one that Stephen Hawkins used in the early 90's on that BT advert, at time of purchase it cost a whopping £10000 to build, people from all round the world would come and meet my grandfather to see him use it (he was disabled after a stroke, was only able to move his head)

    Thanks, I wasnt in the Army though, I was a civilian attached to a TA unit, started up out there doing convoys and ended up running the only beer warehouse in Iraq, Ive never been so f*cking popular in all my life!

    Got my medal for it last week, was well chuffed.
