Every car fan has played this game. Close your eyes and imagine that you are walking towards a building with five closed garage doors. It can be any building, old or new, but the important thing is that it is yours and, as such, the contents of said garages are also yours. Five doors, five cars. So, with price and availability taken out of the equation, which cars would you have hidden behind each door?
With each member of the CAR team having given you a personal tour of their dream garage we invited Springbok legend John Smit and beauty Jo-Ann Strauss to submit their own five-car fantasy garages. Last week we were invited to award-winning breakfast radio DJ Ryan O’Connor’s garage and this week we venture back onto the rugby field.
With the 2012 Currie Cup heading into its business end this coming weekend, let it not be said that Cape Town-based CAR magazine isn’t sporting enough to give just one more former Sharks player an opportunity to share his passion for cars. Currently plying this trade with the Toyota Verblitz squad in the Japanese Top League, Ryan Kankowski has 75 caps for the Sharks at Super Rugby level and has donned the Springbok jersey on 20 occasions.
We wonder whether John Smit will be handing over the keys to his Ford Mustang when these two are eventually reunited back in Durban.

Number one would have to be the new Ferrari Enzo that’s being unveiled next year at the Geneva Auto Show, I hope.. the original Enzo was amazing, so I’d love to see what this new one could do.
Would probably be my number one if I wasn’t such a Ferrari fan. Shouldn’t need an explanation on why I’d want this car. Pure power and speed.
In my opinion, the most beautiful and powerful Lambo ever built.
1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
Raw American power. I think every person who loves cars has an affinity for this particular model. Sounds amazing and there’s no computer helping you keep the car on the road.
I’m a big fan of BMW and would love to drive this car. From what I’ve seen of this car on the track it looks like a lot of fun to drive..
