A garage is a special place—not home, not office, not rec room. It may combine elements of all of these, yet it remains unique. Dreams are born, housed, revived, and realized within the walls and beneath the rafters of an enthusiast’s garage. Dream Garages explores this hallowed space, taking the reader into 21 motorhead havens where automotive and motorcycle enthusiasts store and work on the objects of their passion. Some of the structures are expansive, some modest; some are working garages, others spotless showcases of pristine machines and automotive art. Pervading all is a love of the motor vehicle and an appreciation for the structure that allows us to harbor and revive them. Here readers will find enthusiasts who collect, preserve, and work on sports cars, race cars, motorcycles, speed record vehicles and related machinery, and treasures. Revered names like Ferrari, Corvette, Mustang, Cobra, and Jaguar dwell in these special spaces. Dream Garages is not a manual on building a great garage; it’s look at the ideas and passions that can make any garage great.

Review:

“So you’ve got the checkered-flag floor tiles. The NASCAR worthy aluminum jack and a gleaming set of Snap-On Tools. But chances are that your garage pales in comparison to the automotive shrines expertly detailed in this book. The cars, personalities and endless garage wall memorabilia come to life in the excellent color photos printed in thick stock. It is truly a satisfying read.” - Road and Track


“What makes this book a winner: any hardcore enthusiast can relate to it. It’s funny, too, and beautifully photographed. In fact, it’s worth the cash for Peter Egan’s forward alone, which beautifully sums up our fanaticism.” - Classic & Sports Cars



"You’ll be in awe of the garages with collections of emblems, memorabilia and model cars.” - Edmonds.com “Don’t let the title fool you: This is no more a book about garages than Bon Appetit is about casserole dishes ... It’s what goes inside that counts, and Dream Garages does not disappoint ... This is a lavishly illustrated book that gets at why collectors collect what they collect – or why they collect anything in the first place ... When it’s not inducing a five-alarm case of envy, Dream Garages can provide inspiration and escape in equal measure.” - Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car

“One of the prettiest car books I’ve ever seen. Hundreds of photographs reflect the tastes and passions of hard-core enthusiasts who own 20 well-stocked garages in California, Europe and elsewhere ... It’s the diversity that makes each collection a treat.” - San Jose Mercury News (CA)

From the Back Cover:

For garage enthusiasts there is scarcely a more sacred place. This is where it all happens: restoring relics and resurrecting wrecks, polishing tail fins and tall tales, and bolstering friendships formed over a shared passion for speed and style. "Dream Garages" takes the reader into 21 amazing spaces. Some are beautifully conceived shrines, others are accidental creations, each is a reflection of its owner's love of internal combustion.

Author Kris Palmer profiles each garage and its owner accompanied by images created by top automotive photographers, including Peter Vincent, Robert Genat, Peter Martin, James Mann, and David Gooley.
