    Dream Garage !!!

    I've been working at Wentworth Golf course in Surrey , and left today for the long 200 mile ride home .... but round the corner we went past what is supposedly nigel mansels ferrari garage so you know we HAD to stop lol .

    Took a couple of pics and thought to share them with you guys so you can admire what i got very close too







    There were some more stunning cars and few Maserati's and Aston's there also and a couple of classics inside the place but we didn't go in because we thought we'd get escorted out because of how scruffy we were lol .

    some nice cars there...i dont think it would matter what you were wearing, my mate knew a guy who was asked to leave a porsche garage cos he was dressed in ripped jeans, complained to porsche as he was planning to buy one...lol....

    result? salesman got fired...and his mate was loaned a car for 2 weeks prior to signing on the dotted line..
    My ambition is to live forever,.. so far so good

    I was reading an interview with Andy McNab once and he said that happened to him in a porsche garage, went in in a t shirt and some dirty trainers and trackies and the salesman goes 'err, can i help you?' in a tone that pretty much meant **** off, so he goes 'yeah, ill have one of them' and just pointed across the showroom and the salesman pretty much fell over.

    Coulda tried that but dunno if it would have worked for you

    Haha would of had to give them an arm and a leg for a deposit ... literally !

    And it looked like a very wealthy area .... working on the golf course was unreal and with tiger woods apparently buying the house next to the one we were doing were talking mega bucks
