Actually, I?ve been advised of the opposite.  It is a bad idea to have carpet underneath the car, as it soaks up oil and other fluids, and acts as a convenient wick to set your car on fire with the slightest spark.  There are several carpet-like, felt-type pads which absorb the oil, keep down the moisture, and are fire resistant.  Griot?s Garage sells them I believe.  My in-laws use them under their cars.  They weren?t ver y expensive if I recall.

You may not want to carpet the whole garage, but its not a bad idea to have a piece of old carpet under your Forward Look vehicle(s). It will trap humidity sweating from the concrete on the concrete instead of allowing it to circulate (and potentially decay) the underside of the car.

I painted my car port floor and used the premium paint made for concrete floors as sold by ACE hardware.  The key is making sure the floor is clean and free of grease. In my case I own a pressure washer and gave it a real good cleaning before applying the paint.  I read recently where a lady had her garage carpeted and said it kept down the dust and dirt and she could go out to the garage barefoot.
