9780760343395: Dream Garages

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.
