Last Call: It's Good To Be Rich Edition

What do you do if you want a secret lair for your stable of amazing tiny penis compensators and your wife wants a tennis court so she doesn’t have to make up excuses for the hunky tennis pro from the club being at your house at all hours of the day and night? Why compromise of course, and have your bat cave garage under her tennis court. The rich, they’re just not like you and me.

    I’ll bet they have no fault insurance.

    Not such a big deal. Have the same thing. My wife just happens to prefer table tennis and I prefer Matchbox cars, but otherwise, identical, yawn.

    Oh, that’s harsh. Just yesterday, I used an hour to clear out my garage so that I could do two oil changes. That reminded me on why I hardly ever wrench when the time came to remove the oil filters. The Camry’s filter is in a great location, but there’s no space around it. After 45 minutes including bending a screw driver and mangling the filter, I called a more competent neighbour. Even he used all the tricks in the book, then some, a bucket of swearing, and 40 minutes. Tennis court garages? Arg!

      Have you tried a wrench that twists from the end (with a ratchet, and perhaps an extension or universal joint) instead of from the side?

        I am looking to buy one now. Such a cap would be perfect on the Camry, but hear people often get them stuck on the filter – so both filter and cap end up stuck?
        Doing oil shifts depends on my willingness to empty the garage first, but the job costs about 180$ at a workshop. So it’s definitely worth it to do it at home.

          My local auto parts store has a rack with about 17 different styles. Not only are there different diameters to consider, there are different number of notches, depending on the type of filter. I imagine if you had a mismatch between filter and wrench, it would be easy to get stuck together.
          Even in that case, with an old filter, the filter will be off the car when you need to dislodge it. Put a large screwdriver in the hole for the socket, turn the works upside down, and then hold the cup part while slamming the screwdriver handle into the floor. Hand tighten the new filter, if you can grip it effectively.
          The style of wrench at the top of the picture shouldn’t get stuck, though.

          I’ve got that top one plus a couple of those bottom ones but I’ve been using a new trick for the cars with spin on filters – hand tighten/loosen – seriously, put a thin film of oil on the rubber of the new filter tighen until it touches and then hand tighten to 3/4-1 extra rotation. Then I can still loosen it by hand next time.

            That’s what I’ve learned, too, but I think that I so far haven’t taken off a filter I mounted myself. I always go back down under the car after I started it to see if it is leaking – because I use very little pressure to tighten the filter.

    Speaking of “If I was rich” – stumbled across this custom 1950 Chevy Nomad Wagon.

      Is that really a nomad? I didnt know they came in woody, and the rear fender curves are throwing me off

        Note the word “custom”….

    Reminds me of this commercial.

    I know it’s going to sound cliche, but all that space and no tools/lift? I’m sure he can pay people to work on his cars, but seriously, you could get a bus between each car. If I had that much space/cash, there’d be two lifts (four post for getting it high up and scissor type that let the wheels hang down for suspension work, fancypants cabinets for all the tools I have no idea how to use, a lathe, milling machine, welding gear. The fact I probably would not use these to these to the full is kinda irrelevant, it’d annoy me to have that much of a shed and not have all the toys. Then again, maybe the real garage is round the back.

      I think further parking spaces are intended in the layout, they’re just not filled yet. You can see the unlit lighting strips around them.

      The mechanical work takes place offsite. It’s also where the transporter is parked, assorted spares are gathered, and project cars are queued up. The under-the-tennis-court garage is designed for museum-quality display aesthetics.

    Why haven’t I burned down the tennis court and divorced the woman yet? I’m the one with the money, I can afford the better lawyers.
