There must be a rule on this. Think it goes something like "the amount of stuff you've collected will always be at least double what you thought you had.

I have 4 cars, and a three car garage. When I built my home, I spec'd extra wide garage doors and an 15+' ceiling height to accommodate lifts, which I have, giving me total indoor capacity for 6 cars. This not only allows for neat, inside storage, but also easy access to undercarriage maintenance.

If your ceiling height is over 15', this is really the only way to fly...it is mucho convenient, your wifey will tolerate this far better than the cars making a mess of themselves in your driveway (the fairer sex worries about such matters), it makes any underside work (or just browsing!) a snap, and all your babies are together, where they belong.

I'd stay away from barns or other primitivia, others joke about rodent and wild life damage, but the chances of that occurring in their natural habitat are really quite significant. One of those self storage places (yes, for cars) is a far better approach, with maybe one of those all encompassing inflatable balloon thingies ('Car condoms')for extra protection.

I ran out of inside space and bought a refer semi trailer. Took the axles out and set it down on blocks and built a ramp to it. I have my 29 626, 32 Ford tudor and a 55 bird in it. The refers do not sweat like storage containers and also are reasonably mouse proof.
