The garage is more than just a place to store cars. It is a place to work, hang out, and show off the vehicles that are an integral part of car lovers' lifestyles. This lushly illustrated, large-format gift book caters to America's fascination with the garage and looks at 24 of the most incredible garages in the United States. The list of garages compiled by author Phil Berg is a mix of over-the-top garages built by some of the most well-known names in the auto industry, including Bob Lutz, Ken Gross, Brock Yates, Jay Leno, and Bruce Meyer. Amazing garages from Peter Mullen's fantastic underground garage full of Delahaye roadsters and famous celebrity garages are also featured in full color detail. Past garage books have outlined all sorts of ways to turn your garage into something it isn't. This book isn't about using your garage as an office, a library, or an artist's loft. It's a peek into the collections of some of the most famous car and motorcycle enthusiasts alive. The cars and motorcycles alone are worth the price of admission.Chapter Outline:, The Garage as a Palace , Real World Garages, Garage, Inc. , Non-Traditional Garages About the Author:Phil Berg spent eight years as an editor at Autoweek magazine and ten years as a senior editor at Car and Driver before moving on to a career as a freelance writer for Popular Science, New Car Test Drive, Trips, and other specialty automotive magazines.
