So my wife (and just about everyone else that sees my garage), thinks I am over the top with the orange cones and barriers protecting my girl. I told them I was going to post some pics on the forum and see what the members consensus is. I am sure from reading this forum for some time that there will be good deal of agreement and a good deal of "it's only a car", although my belief is the former will prevail! Hopefully I will have some ammo to use next time my wife things I'm crazy and "love my car more than her" lol. Thanks for the input.
way over. I'll have to take a picture of my garage. i've a couple inches clearance on either side of the vette pulling in, once its mostly in i turn the wheel to angle it so i can skirt past the panel saw that is being stored, so i can open the door enough to get out.
What/who are you protecting it from? What happens when you drive it and other cars get close? Are you afraid someone is going to go out there and do something to it while it is parked in your garage? Its a Chevrolet.
I see that as a bunch of potential projectiles aimed at your car! If somebody where to be leaning over to take a closer look, they may fall and send all those cones, barrier wall and pole in the direction of your car.
If it's in the garage I think a simple sign on the windshield that says look but don't touch is probably adequate.
It all depends on the traffic in your garage. Are kids going in n out? Is there another driver that might park too close and hit it opening a car door? And finally your financial position. If it was a strech to buy the vet and maybe your only new one ever, no you are not over the top. If none of the above conditions apply your are OCDC.
Nothing wrong with being protective but that is taking it a little too far. The cones even look new....don't tell me you went out and bought all those just for this occasion.
Front page of the News tomorrow..... Corvette Owner Arrested!For stealing road work cones...
