Synopses & Reviews
An Ultimate Garage is more than just a place to store and service cars. It's often a showroom designed to display collections in the best possible light, complete with automotive memorabilia, vintage posters and photographs, and in some cases even Hollywood-style sets. In his third lavishly illustrated book, Ultimate Garages III, author Phil Berg takes readers inside twenty exotic private garages that house some of the rarest and most beautiful cars in the world. The 176-page book, which includes 200 color photographs, profiles 20 great garages and explains how they were built and what they are used for. Loaded with anecdotes from each owner and illustrated with hundreds of photographs, Ultimate Garages III is the ultimate insider's tour of the distinctive homes of nearly every type of car: from concours-winning Duesenbergs and Pierce-Arrows to classic hot rods and retired racers. Berg also offers market and technical data about each structure for readers interested in creating their own Ultimate Garage.
