  1. I’m not trying to make any body green with envy. I want to fit my car into the garage and right now if I was able to drive my car into the garage, I would not be able to get out of the car. There is maybe one hundred inches to park the car in the garage and my car would require at least 90 inches. I would need another 40 to 50 inches to open the driver’s side door and get out of the car, walk to the back of the car, open the trunk or maybe the side passenger door and get the groceries bags out or whatever I came home with.
