Only 2 Cars?!?

Posted by ifitsgotanengine on November 30, 2005

I’ve written about my friend Stephen before, but not about this.

We were stationed together in Saratoga Springs, NY at a Navy Training Center. Stephen lived across the street from me in Navy Housing. We each had a one-car garage and were *allowed* to have one additional vehicle, parked in the driveway.

Well, being the gearheads that we were/are two cars wasn’t close to enough.

So we started an informal contest to see who could have the most vehicles parked in Navy Housing at the same time.

By the time we moved out, we were tied at around 7 or 8 each, but Stephen clearly had me beat on tonnage, having both a schoolbus and 1948 American LaFrance fire-engine.

But he didn’t have a 17′ boat with no trailer, so we called it a draw.

    You forgot to mention the magic garage as well. While at any point in time you may have had more whole cars, my garage was always full of the parts you needed to keep them running.
