Storage

meanwhile - back on topic, there is still room for a couple of cars in the Club storage facility and with some leaving in the next few months after being tucked up for winter, there'll be room for more :-)

edit - I've started another thread as it's interesting stuff, perhaps a mod could split out the discussion on lock-ups? (Thanks Roger :-))

GTE into storage today.

Used the SS1 all weekend and will miss it when it goes tomorrow. I hate winter.

couple of spaces left for winter storage this year - if your paint's suffering outside in this weather or your carpets are rotting away because of leaks - this is cheaper in the long term :-)

But doesn't someone that's well known on here say "cure the fault - not the symptoms" :lol:

If I was crazy enough to buy a project car, would storing it the club storage be okay, and second question is could you use it as a work space to get the car back on the road? - trying to talk myself out of a third car and second scimitar, but this could sway it ;) if the bank balance holds that is ;)

Yes - although it's filling up fast

Is it possible to go on a waiting list? I quite urgently need to find somewhere to store my Scimitar otherwise I'll have to sell it. It is currently being kept on the street outside my house, but I'm not driving it very much at the moment and would rather put it away for a while.
