There's nothing at all wrong with spending a large sum of money on a nice garage. After all, you need a good, safe place to keep your two- and four-wheeled belongings, right? And, assuming you've got the disposable income and lots of toys, we suppose even a multi-million-dollar garage is within the boundaries of acceptability... even if that's 25 times the average cost of a new home in America.

Keep scrolling below and you'll find a video from HGTV's Million Dollar Rooms program, hosted by Carter Oosterhouse, in which a $6 million garage is featured in all its glory. The first portion of the garage is pretty nice, housing a large collection of (sigh... mostly unridden) motorcycles, but that's not what makes this garagemahal stand out from the crowd.

That would be the massive hydraulic elevator used to access the garage's lower portion. We'll let you all decide whether or not this garage is worth its cost – the elevator sucks down $25 in electricity each time it's operated! – or whether or not it's filled with a properly exotic batch of vehicles. All you gotta do is watch the video below, then let us know what you think in the Comments.

      Nice garage. I just don't get why there's a Cruze in it. I mean the Cruze is alright, but it's pretty anti-climactic to have this over-engineered subterranean bat cave of a garage, and then there's a $20K sedan waiting for you when you walk into the room. I was expecting to see a chromed out Bieber Fisker in there.

        My guess is that he apparently didn't want to advertise to the world exactly what he hides down there. Can't say I blame him, knowing how many crooks and criminals there are out there, and how creative they can be to get what they want.

      You only saw what he wanted you to see. The show is about million dollar rooms,not cars. Judging by all the unused space, I'm guessing a lot of stuff was moved elseware.

      I lived for 10 years in Incline Village about a mile from this house as it was being built in the early '2000s. There is a bike/jogging trail in front of this place and I observed construction from there. There is more wood in the entrance arch than in most homes. It was so large I was sure the main buildings were going to be some sort of resort. I observed the lift one time and dumbfounded upon hearing about the home and the garage underneath. At one point was able to walk around the place as it was being constructed. My jaw had scrapes from dragging on the ground. The place is truly spectacular. As a friend said..."We couldn't qualify for the loan to pay the taxes." BTW, he had to buy more than one property on the lake in order to build this as he liked. He also has what appears to be an old Grayhound bus that can be towed behind a semi tractor (think no windows), think no motor, 2 wheels on each corner, a tow bar in the front and a rear "lid" that lifts up. There is a ramp in the rear and two "floors" - he carries his toys in it. Word was he "had to" buy two places in Florida on the water because local code would not let him keep his very large yacht on the water front of one home.

      Impressive as it may be, it looks the garage costs more than all his cars/bikes combined.

      To quote Mr. Gonzales, the millionaire/garage owner: "You just can't put a price on fun." I like this guy.

      I would rather have a cool ramp tunnel thing, like at the tunnel at the pit lane exit, Abu Dhabi Grand Prix http://cpn.canon-europe.com/content/news/shoots_motorsport.do

        I was thinking the exact same thing! While the lift is undeniably cool it's also overly complicated and looks as thought it would take a while to cycle, having a ramp would be a far simpler and easier solution.

          It would also be far less awesome.

      The garage for the cars is cool, but whats the point of having motorcycles you don't drive.

      He could only afford a Cruze 1LT, since he spent all his money on the garage.. Naturally...

      sadly, he's not a collector. he's a hoarder.

      I was expecting the X-Men jet to come out of that garage when it lifted.

      I'm glad his Cruze is safe.
