To submit photos of your garage to the gallery, send them via email. If you don’t have my email address, use the contact link to the left to send me a message. I will reply with an actual email address. Sorry for doing it this way but listing an email address on a public web site invites spam!

The rules for photos are simple…

1) The photo can include people or not, but the main focus should be the garage.
2) Send as many photos as you like, within reason.
3) Showing M.G.s in the garage is nice, but not mandatory.
4) Include your name and location (city or region is fine, exact address not necessary).
5) Include a brief description of your garage, projects, cars or any other interesting tidbits.
6) Remember this is a public gallery, so hide anything you don’t want the world to see.

Now, on to the garage photos! (click images to read additional descriptions)

Bob Muenchausen

My wife and I moved this last year to a new and bigger home and I ended up with a nice 3 car garage which has an office built into the 3rd bay. I don’t do quite as much restoration and car work as I used to, so as you will see, there is more emphasis on my office than on the workbench/garage. I still haven’t finished cleaning up after our move in July 03, but it is certainly a lot nicer out here than in August (the garage/office was essentially a full storage unit after moving, with no space for cars or my computer stuff!).

The last image was contributed by Bob. It is a classic drawing of a typical period MG enthusiast’s lair created in the 1930s by MG’s famous graphic chronicler, F. Gordon Crosby.

Dennis Rainey

Dennis employed two four-post lifts to fit his collection in the garage. I hope he has an oil pan between the cars!

Steve Simmons

The first photo is of the garage in my last house. There would normally be a ’65 MGB on the right side. The second photo is how the garage looked a couple years after moving to our current house. For shame! The last photo shows the result of the previous garage being torn to the ground and rebuilt! Click here for details on the rebuild project.

Kim De Bourbon

Don’t know if you want to call this a “garage” or not, but it’s all I’ve got to shelter my ’66B!

Someday, we’ll build a real one, but in the meantime, this “portable garage,” a.k.a. “the tent” is doing a good job of keeping my B out of the rain, snow and sun.

I bought it from Harbor Freight for about $200. (Some assembly required!) Dimensions are 16ft 9in long, 8ft. 10in wide, and 7ft high. Just the right size for an MGB, and still have room to walk around it you’re careful. Lots of room front and aft, making it easy to work in the engine bay if you bring a work light in.

David Breneman

Last summer it looked like an impossible task to get this garage ready for my MG, but it’s finally more MG Home than Storage Locker. A friend of mine with lots of construction experience enclosed the end carport to make a storage area, and built carriage house style doors for both sides.

The display of the car is augmented by some old track lights donated by another friend. The lights washing the body of the car are fitted with Lee Filters gel #131 to show off the Glacier Blue paint, with a Lee #015 amber filter to play off the gauges on the dash. A #019 red filter accents the grille and front bumper. There’s still some stuff to clean out of there (anybody want a genuine late-70s Pennzoil oil can display rack?) but I’m glad the car has a decent place to stay.

R. L. Carleen

Here’s one “Before” of my old shop and some “afters” of the new one I’ve just built this year. In between these pix, the car has actually been assembled and on the road to proof the mechanicals. Coming back apart now for the new paint. There is usually an ’80 LE in here as well, but it was out getting some fresh air. I built 3′ deep shelves, floor to ceiling on two walls and made sliding doors to cover them. Left two spaces as closets for things such as floor jacks, blasting cabinet and the engine hoist. Tucked my air compressor in the corner, along with room for the welders and hose storage. I keep the A on a “Park Smart” matt to contain the escaping fluids and preserve the new concrete floor which will be painted this spring.

James Haskins

This is where James keeps his 1953 MG TD.

Harley Johansen

Here are some pics of my shop that I built for the MG and other projects (Volvo PV 544).

Brad French

’67 MGB-GT and Miata sharing a one-car garage! (making an honest woman out of our realtor)

Terry Jacobs

Terry’s 1954 MG TF. “I hope my pictures don’t scare too many people.”

Tommy Thompson

This is where me and my MG and TR6 hang out. The space serves as a garage, rec room kind of place. Fully carpeted and fully enjoyed. I bought the 74 MGB in August of 2003 and her sister the TR6 in August of 2002.

Wyatt Wolcott

Here’s my lair, a la chicken coupe sort of.

David Marklew

Here’s one from the UK.

Steve Gyles

Mine is a working garage that had to find space for the TC, the MG rebuild, camping trailer, windsurfer and goodness knows what. The sequence of photos shows some of my MGA rebuild in and just outside the garage during a 16 month period from December 1996 to May 1998. The car was brought back to the UK from the Yucaipa area, east of LA. Note the mouse nest on the gearbox in picture 2.

Steve Crowder

This is my escape, the green car is presently being de-cancered, the Iris Blue is my two year ago project and I will be working on another 66-B this fall for my son. Red w/supercharger of course. The MG logo on the wall was taped and hand painted one night when I was waiting for some paint to dry. If anyone wants to try it, just look on your trunk lid and BLOW-IT-UP with the help of some measurements and some masking tape… Took about three hours.

Jim Geeslin

Jim, I somehow lost your description. Please e-mail me.

Arthur Pearce

Temporary home to 61 MGA under restoration. Soon it will be treated to the back half of a new garage when we move.

Guinn Hudon

This will probably be Goldie’s home for a long time as the F150 and Buick Regal would object mightily if the B tried to move in!

The storage shed is 10×14 which makes it a bit short for a B. I’m thinking about building an extension on the currently open end to give me 10x 18 space. I took the right front down in order to get a wide enough doorway for the car. It gives me about a foot on the right side and about 3 1/2 on the left. The rag is to keep me from bumping my head on the top door rail!

Randy Myers

While still under construction, it is a 24′ x 24′ two car garage that is part of a 36′ x 54′ shop that also houses my wood working shop. I engineered the shop floor (wood framed) so that I could drive cars on it also in the event that I needed more room. Pictured is the 1959 coupe I just bought and am starting to restore and the ’59 roadster almost completed.

Sebastien Canevet

Here are two photographs of my garage (Out and in). My beloved MG B isn’t in the photographs, she is in another garage. The little prewar car is a BSA three wheeler and the blue nose is from my winter daily car, a rare Daimler Majestic, a long wheel base version of the Jaguar XJ40. The thing on my bench is the gearbox from the BSA, it’s in the car again now.

Ken Bowen

I built a guest house structure on my property that I finished with an open interior to act as a shop for my play time. It was designed so that all I will have to do is frame in the partitions to finish it out as livable space. In the mean time it is nice to work in a heated and cooled shop in Texas! I am currently in the middle of a frame off job for a 60 roadster and am just getting ready to replace the sills. My completed rack is in the back with most of the components finished and ready to go back in. One of these days I might even get an MG clock for the wall but who really wants to know how much time they have spent doing this stuff!

Steve Dyck

“I just finished my shop and moved my ’70 MGB in to start a complete restoration.”

Terry Sanders

Terry shows us his impressive array of cars including a beautiful SA Tickford, multiple T-Types and an Arnolt! What’s that funny Italian thing doing in there?

Mike Schultz

“Yes, that’s as wide as it is.”

Ian Ward

My TC is a 1949 TC7908 and is Australian and the yellow B is a BGT V8 out of South Africa. It’s a 1976, but stood in a dealership on display for 4 years, and was finally registered as a 1980. It has approx 16,000 miles.

(Engine is out at the moment as it is being upgraded from the conventional 3,500cc (215, to an australian P6 unit which stroked to 5 litre (302 cid) and a 6-speed.

LaVerne Downey

Wife had the shell built for me after I took over the house attached garage for 6 months rebuilding the B about 12 years ago. 30 x 64 insulated, heated,air conditioned. Separate 200 amp power service , water, more that adequate lighting. Looks just a little different now as I put the old kitchen cabinets in. We are doing a full remodel. Could really use some more wall space to hang up al my junk, er treasures. Two walls finished with some custom milled t&g knotty pine that was left over from a business project.

I designed and built the garage as a multi-purpose room: showroom and storage for the cars; workshop for repairs and restoration; lounge for me and my son (with frig, stereo, computer and television); and as a display for various automobilia (e.g., Gulf, Michelin, and British Leyland stuff).

I originally envisioned the space to accommodate only three cars, using a BendPak single post lift, but “like the law of gas – it fills the volume of its container.” I used both natural and artificial lighting, installing skylights and side widows, drive-over rated inground lights beneath the lift, spot, track and fluorescent overheads, as well as a series of halogens under the cabinets for the workbench. Ikea kitchen cabinets were both cost effective and spacious, helping to create three separate work areas for various jobs; also their solid maple countertop made a perfect work surface, and matched the building’s support beam.

Since the footprint is only 24′ x24′, in an attempt to maximize a relatively small open space, I deployed a sawtooth style roof line to improve ceiling height and ventilation. Combined with a custom built 16 foot outward-swing bi-fold door, I could readily squeeze three cars. Always a work in progress.
