Well that sucks. You feel like your car is safe in the garage and bam the garage is the issue.

For some reason, that just doesn't sound right!

Nope, not me.
I was not in South Florida, I have witnesses and a solid alibi. Besides..I would never, ever drive what appears to be a Lexpus or exceed the speed limit after committing a felony. Walk away, always walk away, alot less conspicuous.

The Corvette with the attached or unattached garage........very sad.

That smashed red vert reminds me of the time I went to a car wash (not my Vette, Junkman ), and saw a new red Vette convertible just starting through the line. A guy from out on the street ran into the tunnel, jumped in the Vette (after it had passed several brushes/rollers) started it, and tried to back it out. Unfortunately, one of the giant brushes caught on the rear deck and the harder he tried to back up, the more it dug into the car and pressed it toward the ground. He finally gave up, jumped out and ran off. The poor owner was standing at the exit of the tunnel and had no idea his car wasn't coming out. We were behind the glass watching the whole thing. The back half of that car was quite smashed.

That's what he gets for using a car wash!

Yeah, I'm thinking running your Vette through an automatic car wash might be grounds for forfeiture of your man-card.

I think that's what the guy was trying to do when he jumped in the car.

Yeah, but he apparently didn't have a man-card of his own. With that conveyer pushing a roller against the rear tires, water making everything slick, and giant brushes with stout metal arms hanging around the back of the car, it didn't take a rocket scientist to see that car wasn't going to go backward.

With all the tornadoes y'all have you have to. And then when a tornado hits it just picks up the garage roof, walls AND foundation and scatters it all over. Yep....I just noticed that in this pic the bottom plate of the wall is still bolted to the concrete slab. That works well. Congratulations.
