Looking for Homes for Sale with a Big Garage in Longmont Colorado?
Have a collectible car? Tired of parking something on the street?
I love super passionate about cars and know you are too. I’ve had a bunch of American muscle cars, but never had a garage to put them in. Now, I have a garage but don’t have a car to put in it. But, I am working on fixing that.
Daniel Kuhlman: Hi, my name is Daniel Kuhlman, and I’m a real estate agent with Nesting Rock Properties here in Longmont, Colorado. I’m also Longmont’s Digital Mayor. So today we’re going to be talking about car collectors and their need for garages. So there are a couple of different things going on here. There are lots of homes for sale in the Longmont, Colorado area and the greater Longmont area, but they don’t always have enough garage space to put in the car that you want. So today we’re going to be talking about why we would need a larger garage. I’ll talk about some of the cars that I’ve had, some of the cars that I want, and some of the videos that I’ll be showing you as part of this garage series. So stick around and we’ll talk about all of those things and more.
So first I’m going to share with you the cars that I’ve had so that you understand where I’m coming from. And these aren’t necessarily in the order that I owned them, but I’m putting them in chronological order so it makes sense to you. First car, 1968 Pontiac Firebird, black, black interior, 350 engine, awesome car. Just love driving that around, it had the sound. I’ve also had a 1968 Oldsmobile 442, silver, black stripes, just a stunning example. I was living with a roommate, he had an 1959 Chevy four-door, gorgeous car. One morning the two of us woke up, walked outside, and both of our cars had been crushed by the tree that was in our front yard of our rental. His car got it worse than mine. I got a few bucks for it, but I don’t know if it ever got restored.
My first car was actually a 1969 Pontiac LeMans. If you haven’t got the clue here, I’m actually a GM kind of guy, but I love Pontiac’s, more than any of the others. I actually bought this car for 150 bucks, no title, there was a tree growing in the back seat. Not the seat, but in the floor. Somebody had left the window open and it was raining in there and the seed had gotten in and before you know it, there was a one foot tall tree, shrub, bush, whatever you want to call it, growing in the backseat. Cleaned it up, loved that car, 350, gorgeous car. My grandmother gave me this car, it was a 1970s Chevelle from Texas. The paint was a little bit of that crackly stuff going on from sitting in the sun too long, but it had 70000 miles in 1981, and had that for a couple of years as well.
This is probably my favorite one. I had a 1970 Formula Firebird, blue, just gorgeous, deep, lacquer finish, has honeycomb wheels, 1970, I would like to have that car again. I’ve had a 1971 Cougar, really nice example. Now, of course it’s not the ’69, ’70 version of the Cougar, which was of course more iconic than the ’71, but it was still 351 cruiser little car. Then I had a 1973 Pontiac Ventura. Nothing special, not as nice as the Nova necessarily, but it was a bright yellow with a black interior and it was a sporty little trick. Then my last muscle car was in 1981 corvette, bright white, red interior, and it had a bike rack on the back.
So here are the cars that I want. Here’s the cars that I want to put in my garage. 2020 Pontiac Trans Am. Oh, but they stopped making Pontiac in 2010. There are these guys down in Florida making Camaro’s into Trans Am’s. They actually have a complete line before Burt Reynolds died, of the Bandits signed editions. They’re going for like 220000. I want a 1970 GTO Judge convertible. What’d they make? Like a hundred sixty-eight of them total. They’re now selling I’ve seen, a perfect example selling for about 650000, 700000. Yeah, I want that car. It’ll happen.
1957 Chevy. I want one of those, who doesn’t? I want a C1 Corvette. I know everybody likes the ’63 split backs. I like the ’62 and before. I want an 1977 or ’78 Firebird, Formulas okay, Trans Am cool too. And my wife wants a convertible. She told me that if I got rid of the Corvette, I could buy any convertible I want as long as it has four seats. How cool is that? Well, I’ll find it.
Okay. Future topics. Here’s what we’re going to talk about. We’re going to talk about if you’re looking to buy a home here in Longmont, you’re going to want to think about floors. You’re going to want to think about tools. You may even want to think about a man cave. I’ll talk about lifts, storage solution, garage additions, doors, garage doors, how to take care of them. I’ll talk about heat and of course finally the cars inside your garage. Okay. With all that said, there’s plenty to do in the upcoming video series. So I’m going to leave you with the thoughts that I love cars. I know you do too. I’d love to do a video of your garage featured here on my channel, longmontsdigitalmayor.com.
