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:

Don't let the title fool you: This is no more a book about garages that Bon Appetite is about casserole dishes...It's what goes on inside tham 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 collectanything 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 and exotics

lavishly illustrated book taht offers a tour through idiosyncratic garages of extreme motorheads --Kearney Hub

A worthy reference book for any gearhead, especially when yourelaise taht fully a third of these amazing car collections are British. from custom-built garages to single barns owned by an eccentric enthusiast this is a book anyone interested in cars should ahve...amazing photographs bedazzel and beguile the reader...five stars for this title...If there is one thing Motorbooks does well it's a lavish photography book, and this one fits the bill, a must-hev.. --Classic Cars

if you're the kind of person who gets annoyed by people who have more than you then you might want to avoid this book, but if you want to see some outstanding collections of automobiles in garages that make terminal 5 at Heathrow look like a garden shed then dive right in. it's not all hot rodders, there's muscle car guys, classic cars guys, vintage motorcycle guys and even some lunatic ( in England of course) who collects Army trucks. Apparently there are words in the book too but, like me, you'll probably not find yourself reading too many of them as the pictures are what it's all about. And they're great pictures. CC Verdicts: Jealous? moi? --Custom car, January 2009

If you're the jealous type it's probably not for you,but if you wnat to be left mouth agape, it's pure automotive porn.

The NASCAR worthy aluminum jack and a gleaming set of Snap-On Tools. But chances are that y --Classic cars, January 2009

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.
