Here are my answers:

1. Do you have a garage? Yes - 3 car garage, supposedly
2. Does your car actually fit in there? Hah. Only one car fits because of all the cr*p.
3. What's the weirdest thing in your garage? We have a Halloween mask of Ronald Regan. It scares the living daylights out of the kids. We also have about 15 filing cabinets full of "files" that my professor DH keeps for research. That's why it's HIS car that doesn't go into the garage while mine does.

1. Yes. We have a 1.5 car garage built in 1959 when cars looked like this.

2. Nope. The ceiling is too low for me to fit my Honda Pilot in there. We tried. It *can* fit hubby's Ford Edge as long as we don't open the trunk. But we don't park the cars in it.
3. We use it as a bonus room with a foosball table for the kids. It also has a laundry room at the back. We also store our lawn equipment, bikes, and on shelves we have storage bins. Our house doesn't have a basement or attic (old South Florida bungalow) so we use the garage as our only place to really store things. I guess the weirdest thing in there is my paper scrapbooking supplies. I really should just throw them away! The heat and humidity has probably destroyed them.

Back home we:
1. Do you have a garage? have a one car garage
2. Does your car actually fit in there? yes, but would you believe that we have to park it slanted so we all could get out of the car? Seriously.
3. What's the weirdest thing in your garage? an old broken washing machine. I don't know what my father-in-law needs it for, but since we're neighbors (), most of his "stuff" were in our garage because my MIL would not allow them in their own house.

1 - Yes
2 - a 4 car garage, in which neither mine, my husband's nor his work truck fit in it. However, there is a recreational/vintage vehicle in there as well as the kids' go-cart
3 - There is always something weird in my house. We have a skeleton that roams the house (he is currently in my office), we have an Indiana Jones giant 4' boulder in my dining room and these in the garage

Yep - that is an Ark of the Covenant and Lego Unikitty and Lego Batman heads
and oh, check out who is riding the bikes and greets us as we go thru the garage:

1. Do you have a garage? Yes, 2 car garage
2. Does your car actually fit in there? We don't park in it because our lawn equipment doesn't fit in the shed so it's basically storage but I'd like to park in it. Hubby wants to put a pool table in there instead and make it a man cave lol
3. What's the weirdest thing in your garage? An extra stove that I just thought I'd use for holiday times and well, I never have. It really needs to go

1. Yes, a 2 car garage.
2. We park a minivan and a small sedan in it. The back of our fireplace juts into the garage, so I don't think we could fit anything bigger on the sedan's side.
3. A pile of empty egg cartons, juice bottles, and paper towel rolls (because...preschool teacher).

2 car garage
2 cars in there... and we have another 4 that don't fit in there (hubby is a car nut, he's also an automotive/electrical engineer so that might explain it)
Nothing weird in there - just car stuff, tools, etc.

1. Do you have a garage? Yes, I have a 1.5 car garage.

2. Does your car actually fit in there? Yes. My car fits in there just fine but I only use it during the winter. DD's is SOL and has to park hers outside in the winter and remove the snow from her car when we get a storm
3. What's the weirdest thing in your garage? Nothing weird I don't think.... a chest freezer, treadmill, gardening stuff, winter windows for my screened in porch, lawn mower, plastic bins with winter wear, Christmas decorations, etc. There are about 10 basketballs in there though - my daughter has an obsession! LOL

We live in an apartment, so we have no garage. Most people here don't have garage, anyway.

Judging by my neighbors' it's probably weird that we fit both cars in our two-car garage because we don't keep a lot of junk in there. Maybe weird is that recently our city distributed a large recycling bin to each house. I found room for it in our garage because if it were anywhere else, I wouldn't use it. (My one neighbor has it in their shrub bed on the side of their house. What a pain to walk all that way to put in your items!)

LOL, this is so true! Here in AZ, it's very unusual to have a basement (the ground is too hard to dig) or a functional attic (too hot) so our only real storage option is the garage. Sigh.

Yes, we have a single-car garage but there's no car in it. DH uses it like a mancave for all of his tools, the lawnmower, the kids' outside toys, etc.

I'm not sure there's anything all that weird in it. I don't ever go in there so I couldn't tell you off the top of my head.

We have a 2 car garage. Although I'd say it's a 2 compact car garage.
I park the Charger in there when we are under severe storm warnings...don't want want hail dings! If hubby cleaned all of the other stuff out, he might be able to maneuver the Ram in there, but it's a super tight fit.
Right now the weirdest thing in there is a wooden end table that the old homeowners left behind. We set it up with a target on top of it to give Rachel her own BB gun practice range.

We have a three car garage... both cars fit. On the side my husband parks, is the steps to the basement, we had to test each SUV to make sure it fits before buying... still got the Honda Pilot and now I have to park in and angle so have room to get our if the car! No idea how anyone could park a third car in the garage, there is like four inches of space between car and wall.

Weird stuff.... hmm... I don't know. That seems to be our transition space. Piles of stuff for rummage sales, filing cabinets waiting to go in the basement.... the 80+ rolls of garbage bags, I guess is prettty weird... we have rolls everywhere. Hubby works for a company that makes the machines that make garbage bags.

No garage here but I sure would like one so that I don't have to clean the snow off.

We keep talking about building one but honestly I think it would be more a workshop for all of hubby's wood working tools/supplies. He can build some amazing things so I would love to give him some more space.

No garage for me, I live in a townhouse built in the 70s. Wish I had one for the winter with the ice and snow we get.

We have a detached garage. It was advertised as a two car garage, but much like some of the others have posted, it's more of a 1.5 car garage. We don't park our cars in the garage, it's mostly used for storage. We have all kinds of strange crap in there, lol.

No garage, but we do have 2 storages in the backyard.
The weirdest thing(s) we got in there are probably those big-assed spiders who live there.

We have a double stall garage. My car sits in half of it and the rest is full of yard, storage and outdoor toys. The other two cars sit in the driveway and on the street. It's cold where I live in the winter and my car is nice, so I insist it much sit inside.
