Just when you thought the world was safe from Robert Van Winkle, the O.G. Vanilla Ice rears his frosted tips once again. Don't run for the hills just yet – the guy isn't bent on releasing a new attack on hip-hop this time. Instead, he's jumping feet first into hawking garage/loft condos for The Car Loft. Haven't heard of the project? There's probably a good reason for that.

According to the company's website, The Car Loft is what would have happened if someone had decided to fund and build the awesome garage/house we all drafted in first grade. The roughly 25x30 structures feature parking for up to four cars and a loft space up above for entertaining, sleeping or work. So far, so good, but we started getting skeptical when we heard each unit came pre-furnished with flat-screens, high-end tools, towels and plates monogrammed with the Car Loft logo. Oh yeah, each unit is completely hurricane-proof and features 24-hour surveillance you can monitor over the internet. No word on whether or not you have to pay extra for the robot that cleans up after you and dispense slushies at the same time.

Supposedly The Car Loft has already started its first compound in Delray Beach, and if it's successful, you can expect similar condos to crop up everywhere from Las Vegas to Detroit. Okay, maybe not Detroit. No word on how much these things are going to cost, but based on how often the word "exclusivity" appears on the Car Loft site, we're betting it's more than we've got stuffed under the mattress. More importantly, we've got to wonder how many high-rollers are going to want to wake up every morning smelling like they've spent the night under a Jiffy Lube.

      Why. Question is why? would anyone use this dope/clown as spokesman for anything. Don't get it. Who are you aiming for? Generation that knew this idiot? Yikes, not them. People who don't know this idiot? Just look at him. OMG.

        LOL. Awesome reference. Freddy Mercury is smiling wherever he is.

        Yes but with Vanilla Ice involved in this version it's surely doomed to fail.

        "See, theirs goes garage, garage, garage, garage, and ours goes garage garage LOFT garage garage. There's that little bitty loft. It's not the same." - Vanilla Ice

      For all of their "exclusivity", they really do have a God-awful website and I would have assumed they could have afforded a better spokesperson.

      Vanilla Ice? Where's Chocolate Heat?

      Why do I get the feeling that "TheCarLoft(TM)" has been trying to skew the comments/votes in here?

      I love this concept. I don't know how any car guy could not love this concept.

      I like the idea of living in the heart of downtown in a high-rise, but that would seriously limit my ability to buy, keep, and tinker with my cars and boats. Having one of these babies on the outskirts in addition to your high rise condo downtown is the solution. As an added bonus, it gives you a place to crash when things get heated between you and the wife. I love it.
