Motor City Dream Garages: Amazing Collections from America's Greatest Car City Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There isn't another place in the world that can match Detroit's automotive history. For nearly a century, what was conceived, designed, produced, and marketed from this town ruled the roads. So it only stands to reason that the Motor City is likely to host some of the country's greatest collector garages.

From the personal home of the man who put America on wheels to the posh residences of current automotive icons such as Bob Lutz, Motor City Dream Garages takes readers on a guided tour of 20-plus of Motown's most interesting garages. Going beyond even these fantastic garagemahals, this book also takes readers inside select company garages for exclusive looks at the unique and important collections amassed by companies such as General Motors and Roush Industries (parent company to Roush Racing, owned by Jack Roush).

If you like both garages and the beautiful machines within, this book is for you!

Synopsis:

Rex Roy grew up on the communications side of Detroit’s automotive industry and was first published at age 19. His editorial work expanded to include photography, with work published in Car and Driver, AutoWeek, and other automotive publications. Currently Roy runs Regis Communications, Inc., a marketing and PR firm. He is also a frequent contributing editor to Inside Line, the enthusiast magazine of the on-line automotive information giant, Edmunds.com.
