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. It is a haven from life’s broader concerns, where work is not really work, and virtually anything seems possible. 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 more modest; some are working garages, others near spotless showcases of pristine machines and automotive art work and memorabilia. Pervading all of them 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, trucks, speed record vehicles and related machinery, and treasures. Revered names like Ferrari, Corvette, Road Runner, Cobra, and Jaguar dwell in these special spaces. Dream Garages is not a manual on building a great garage; it’s a look at the ideas and passions that can make any garage great. Dream Garages is the Architectural Digest for those whose veins run with gasoline.

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)

About the Author:

Kris Palmer has written for the Star Tribune as well as Motorbook (Dream Garages, The Cars of the Fast and the Furious, and more). He lives and works in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Peter Egan is one of the most readable writers in the motorcycle enthusiast world. His work first appeared in Cycle World magazine in 1977, and he has been a regular fixture there ever since. Peter lives near Madison, Wisconsin with his wife, Barb, a houseful of dogs and cats, and a garage filled with motorcycles, cars, and the sound set for his garage blues band.

Robert Genat is an accomplished author and photographer who has written more than 23 books for Motorbooks. A self-proclaimed €œgearhead,€ Robert has restored several classic cars. Genat lives in Encinitas, California.

James Mann is one of the world's leading car and motorcycle photographers, with more than 20 years of experience shooting for enthusiast publications, the motor industry, and businesses around the world. His work has appeared within and on the covers of more than 50 books and has provided stunning visuals for numerous magazines, including Classic and Sports Car, CAR magazine, Forza, The Sunday Times, and Automobile magazine as well as being chosen to photograph the British Auto Legends stamps for the Royal Mail. His advertising clients include Aston Martin, BMW, and Toyota, among others.

Peter Vincent discovered photography by purchasing a Popular Photography Annual in the mid-1960s that included Adams, Weston, White, Steiglitz, Strand, and many more. He knew at that moment that he would do photographic work professionally, and he went on to take workshops with Ansel Adams, Brett Weston, Morley Baer and others. But Vincent also grew up as a gearhead, buying his first car at 15 and learning how to fix, customize, and personalize automobiles. His love for visual work, minimalism, and transportation has found its way into Motorbooks titles Hot Rod Garages (2009) and Dream Garages (2006). Official Website: www.petervincentphotographer.com
