Pop up garages.

A few years back I saw a garage / car cover which was like a U shaped tent
you drive up to then pull up and over the car to form a tent. Any one know
where one can be purchased?

This is for a mucker at work.

There is this guy in Leeds:

Thought about one but I find a tarpaulin just as easy for covering the
land rover up, might think aobut a large tent for winter though

For that sort of money you could buy an Army Surplus Tent and also use
it for camping too!

I agree and for what I had in mind that's what I may well do if I need
to work when the weather isn't as nice as it should be but I currently
use a tarpaulin to cover the landrover outside the front of the house.
I don't really want an ooge big tent in front of the window all the
time :)

Makro had big garden gazebo thingie in for under 100, light canvas,
not the polyprop stuff.

I think the folding garages work well for something like a motorbike
though but a LWB Land Rover might be a bit much. Oh well, will stick
to using the tarp for now.

Thanks , I've passed the link on.

Let me get this right... a large tent would look odd but a pink landrover
with no doors or windscreen looks....?

;0)

I'm blessed with a rather massive humoungous driveway and Mrs D makes
regular rumblings about landscaping the frontage. I've a vision of some
rather large boulders and some axle articulation.. Mrs D however thinks that
may be a little OTT..... but not as OTT as the alternative Rampover wall :o)

The only down side is that the features would eventually become oil soaked
unless I change marque.

If you strew the driveway with large interesting boulders it'd
certainly prevent anybody else parking on it....

Look, you go over and sit in that field with Mr Bailey there, I'll
send the boys along presently :) Did I say there will be two pinkies
on the drive soon :)
<sound of Martyn exploding in background>

To be honest, the novelty of driving them is wearing off now the nice
weather will soon be behind us, I feel the same about working outside
the front of the house as well once the warm weather goes, could be
old age I suppose :)

Good job there are things like World Of Warcraft and Ebay to keep us
busy once the cold nights draw in :)

All the best

Yeah know that feeling well.. seems when I open Percys bonnet that it's
compulsory to snow or for fingers to stick to the paint due to the cold.
Must be the "adventure" side of the marque coming out.... must dig out the
ice pick.

Ham radio has got me tempted for the dark nights ahead.. i.e. finding and
getting my foundation course passed.

All this digital malarky leaves me increaingly concerned that if ever major
power cut hits us the nation will grind to a halt....which it would... but
at least I could order my Tesco home delivery by morse , saves all that
burying tins of beans and requirement for shotgun possesion ;-).
Interestingly I understand I now longer need to actually do Morse for the
foundation course though.

I thought the whole morse requirement was going now ? Though,
apparently, old morse senders can beat SMS champions hollow.
