    It is this one: http://www.jab-becker.de/files/upload/TwinRam%2035_S2_40_S-2300_2010.pdf

    For installation one needs to dig about 3 m into the floor, since all the drive components are underfloor. The great advantages are: i) very flat arms, so that even cars with very little ground clearance take the arms without problems, ii) no columns so that opening of doors is possible in any height. The latter is invaluable, since you can e.g. work very comfortable in the footwell simply by lifting to the most convenient height and work through the open door in a relaxed manner. Not inexpensive, though, but has proven worth the expense.

    Thanks! Behind the curtain is a fully equipped bathroom. The red sofa is extendable to a bed and overnight guests (typically male ;)) sometimes like to stay in this place rather than in the guestroom of our living house.

    Nice. But don't you think that the chairs make it look a bit cluttered?

    Haha, yes. l walk through often and decide what I don't really need and can take out. That is especially difficuIt in the garage. But most guests find the absence of stuff calming, and that surprises them. l find it calming too. I can get very disorganized.

    In our humid climate air conditioning the garage is needed to preserve them all.
    The better books and memorabilia are still kept in the house.

    Hi Bob,

    What an amazing collection you have. My favourite is the F50 and yes I think you should convert the big barn to a more spacious showroom layout with all of them together, go on you know you want to!!! Love the tractor too. I sometimes see an F50 kicking around in Scotland, a true beast!

    Cheers,

    Matthew

    Oh, that's part of the house, Christian, so no cars there. Someone just asked to see how the garage fit in. If I could have gotten my now gone Lotus 23 race car in there, l would probably still have it. But I had a Ducati there for a while. It looked the piece of art that it is.

    It's an official Spyker race team banner, that I found on a local eBay in the Netherlands. It's 7' wide and 5' tall.

    Had these made by a guy here in Houston for the garage wall. Will have a spacer behind it for the three dimensional effect. Now if only my car would get back from service...
