What is some of your garage wall swag?

If you have a garage, what are some of the interesting things on your wall? Motorsport swag? Race swag? Posters? Flags? Broken Race car parts? etc.

Bonus for providing pics.

autoart You beat me to it. Every time I see a photo of someone's garage it looks like 3798j's, and I was beginning to wonder if my family is strange. Here's what you can find in the photo below:
  • The timber offcuts collection
  • A glass door ready for our next rennovation
  • A child safety gate that we might use again
  • A couple of jerry cans of E85
  • Tools
  • A 6'4' trailer
  • A bandsaw
  • A long length of yellow tongue for electrical work
  • The keys and front number-plate from the X5 that I wrote off
  • A stepladder
  • A commercial digital-signage TV that I haven't got around to selling
  • Another cupboard of tools
  • A slab of beer
  • A few eskys
  • Boxes, bags and tubs of general stuff that's not really needed in the house, but isn't going to get thrown away
  • Extension cords
  • A mezzane over the trailer allowing me to store more junk
  • Four pushbikes
  • An open space slightly larger than a 135i where I park.
... and that's half the garage. Am I the only one that uses the garage to store stuff that's not just for the car?

I wish I had a garage, currently a car port. My wife and I are talking about making one more move, maybe a small hobby farm with a barn/toy box.

I just posted the following the other day (over in the motorsport subforum) for anyone interested in some nice photography....
If anyone is interested in some nice motorsport, aircraft, or wildlife photography, my buddy has a great eye and talent with the lens. He does it as a hobby and has won some amateur awards. He can print from any size, and some of these could look great in a finished garage or office.

Does a projector setup count as "wall swag"?

Garage doubles as my theater. Hands down my favorite place to hang out.

I don't see any surround sound but if you did it would have so many reflections it would sound bad! Love the Porsche!

No surround sound, just a sound-bar for now. I'm thinking of a floor-standing 2.1 setup at some point but nothing crazy.

So when you curl up with your wife/GF/date on the couch, does she get more attention, or does the GT3?

I have some similar constraints as you with surround speaker placement, I went with a full Sonos wireless setup. It works pretty great. Although, like the previous poster above said, the empty space behind you might make it sub-optimal

I've got a bathroom down there too (door cracked on the back right). And a mini fridge and ice maker. Sometimes I don't surface for days at a time.
