Million Dollar Garages - Safari Gard Disco

http://gizmodo.com/5901333/million-d...ator/gallery/2

Seems like he may have blown his wad on motorcycles and the garage...not a great collection of cars...but I do like the SG Disco.

If this is the same garage I've seen elsewhere (the lift is pretty unmistakeable, so I think it is), the owner has FAR nicer cars normally kept in the garage. I'll try to find the pictures I've seen...

EDIT: here we go...

Here's a photo of some of what used to be inside:
There are more pics somewhere, which I will try to find. If you want a few days' reading worth of insane garages, go through this whole thread: http://www.luxury4play.com/automotiv...d-50-pics.html.

There is probably a reason he does not want to show you his prized collection.

This is the thing I don't get about this guy - he has a McLaren F1, a McLaren SLR, a Ford GT, two Ultima GTRs, 4 Prowlers, and 4 Z8s in that picture alone, and he puts two "new" Thunderbirds front and center? WTF!

The F1 should be in the middle of the display not hidden away like that.

Seriously, WTF!

I love that garage! They had one on the other day showing a 2.5M garage that doubled as a ball room. It had marble floors, etc. but it did nothing for me. This one rocks. But you don't spend 5M on a garage unless your toys cost a lot more so I bet he has plenty more.

House is for sale for $50M!

http://sierrastarlaketahoe.com/

Apparently he has/had an awesome collection, but they may have been sold off (some guy on the McLaren forum claims to have brokered 50 cars for him) or probably moved to his Florida estate??

Article says he is downsizing and does not want to travel between FL and NV anymore...

I feel really bad for him :-)

That interior looks seriously dated! At least the garage is cool.

They were sold off/moved by the time they filmed this?

I couldn't agree more! He's also got a few Hummer H1's... Also, it should be noted that that's no ordinary McLaren F1; it's actually an F1 LM!

Totally agree!! But sure would be nice to have that kind of space for a shop. My 2500 sqft shop is nothing compared to that.
