Pop-Up Garage

Forget a 3-car garage. The new status symbol for the haves in London is this £40,000 pop-up garage by Cardok:

The £40,000 parking spots can be hidden beneath a flowerbed, lawn, or even another parking space.

Owners simply press a button on a keyring to raise they car out of the ground much like the rocket launching apparatus in Thunderbirds.

There is already a four month waiting list to get the sci-fi style parking space installed and bosses of Cardok - the company behind the hydraulic platforms - say orders are pouring in faster than they can build them.

"There is already a four month waiting list"

So, that's,...what? Five installs, maybe ten?

This is barely a passing interest, let alone a fad.

Lets see, it can lift a car, but you're worried that it won't be able to lift a car + a few square feet of snow?

That's like wondering if it's mean to the horse you're riding if you pack an extra water bottle.

If in a place with no snow (or flooding for that matter), this would be a good wait to prevent theft.

Unless, I guess, the thieves figured out a way to hack the garage-raising signal.
