Washington, May 26 (ANI): The man designing a custom-built car elevator for Republican candidate Mitt Romney's La Jolla California home said that he has ordered the Phantom Park model, apparently the same one installed in the homes of actor Harrison Ford and singer Britney Spears.
It's exactly what he's getting. For the cost of the lift, delivery and installed, it's about $55,000, ABC News quoted Brad Davies, who owns the American Custom Lifts in downtown Escondido in California, as saying.
Davies said he has created and installed the system in several other homes in the area, and is a smart solution for property owners seeking a safe and affordable parking space, particularly in neighborhoods where narrow streets make parking difficult.
Romney's car elevator will raise and lower his vehicles to a 3,600-square-foot basement garage, according to public plans for a pending remodel of the home, while his campaign said that the construction on the projects has been put on hold until after the November election.
Meanwhile, liberal advocacy group Americans United for Change along with other allies of President Obama has reportedly tried to portray Romney as 'out of touch with middle-class Americans'.
However, the Romney campaign defended the elevator, saying that they are common fixtures in the area because of space constraints. (ANI)
