This was featured in various Auto websites a few months back...looks like he's seriously got the ball rolling with it! Now if only he could expand to the coasts. I imagine a Socal Car country club being very successful...

So it's private garages, a clubhouse, but no track? Not sure I see the point?

??? Monticello car club has been around for a few years now... it is a legit "country club" for auto enthusiasts.

^^Exactly...places like this are not new, and the main attraction (track) doesn't even exist in the OP. I must really be missing something...

I meant to post this yesterday. This thing seems totally pointless without a track.

So it's a place to build a garage, glorified storage basically, that holds events? So you drive your car to your "show car," park your car, and your "show car" is already at the event? When you want to drive your show car, you have to drive your car to get your car, then drive your car, then drive back to your 1st car, then drive that one home? I'm obviously not the target demographic here...

So what is it? A garage? Sounds like a country club where you can take your clubs, get drinks/food, socialize, etc, but not actually play golf

So you're paying for a satellite garage? Isn't this what public parks are for?

Its a man cave, a home away from home.
A place where you can store your cars, your prize collections.
A place where you can talk people about cars with out driving an hour to car meets.
A place where you can have car meets every day.
A place where you can be next to your cars with out your wife of gf nagging you to take out the garbage and stop faping to your cars.

Lol sounds like this forum...

In all serious, I guess I get it sort of. It's basically glorified storage (not meaning that condescendingly) and and excuse to get away from it all or whatever, with like minded people. Just, I've never considered a garage not at my residence any place else than a racetrack, but again I'm obviously not the demographic they're going for...
