From the Inside Flap:

Travel the world and get a glimpse of how car and motorcycle fans, aficionados, and packrats live and store their treasures. Some of them are secret, private collections that are rarely seen, while others gladly welcome visitors, or in the case of working garages, customers. Inside you’ll see everything from obscure Iron Curtain-era relics, to some of the most beautiful classic Mercedes-Benz, Porsches and Ferraris on the planet. In addition there are several motorcycle collections that are sure to thrill the two-wheeled crowd.  Each space has its own story to tell, many revolving around the owner’s dogged perseverance to build the ultimate shrine to their favorite vehicles. Through vivid photography and lively writing, you’ll have a ticket to each one of them as Dream Garages International opens the doors to the fascinating world of automotive and motorcycle enthusiasts from Europe, North America, Japan and Australia.

From the Back Cover:

Amazing garage spaces from around the world are profiled in this lavish, illustrated journey, fulfilling the motorhead voyeur’s dream of exploring private car and motorcycle sanctuaries from across the globe. Inside you’ll tour everything from England’s motorcycle Pigsty Garage, a crusty place where big ideas are born, to the immaculate Mercedes-Benz Museum located within the grounds of the Stuttgart factory. Other chapters range from a bizarre collection of obscure makes and models that have been secretly squirreled away for decades behind the Iron Curtain, to a fashionable house in Japan where a collection of Countachs rise up into the living room by way of an elevator. These along with many other quirky and spectacular collector spaces from North America, Europe, Japan, and Australia combine to provide a fascinating portrait of how car culture manifests itself around the world.
