Screwing, handicrafts, building: a hobby that quickly becomes a great passion. Especially when you can do all of this in your own garage. The fascination of automobiles is tangible - and now also readable: The book "Garage # 1 - The most iconic workshops in Northern Germany" opens the gates to numerous screwdriver paradises in the north of our country.

Anyone who is involved in the restoration and maintenance of historic vehicles needs one thing above all: great attention to detail and the right touch. The bookazine "Garage # 1 - The most iconic workshops in Northern Germany" provides a glimpse behind the gates of the north German screwdriver paradise. It describes how people have developed their personal bond with automobiles in very different ways.
Whether German classics, American icons or French treasures - they can all be found in the “Garage” illustrated book.

The restoration of vehicles is more than just replacing or changing components: it rather shows how a close bond between man and machine is created. Olaf Schmidt from "Treasure Park" explains to the two authors Thomas Duffé and Corinna Connelly how he has been working on a Porsche "original model" (1963-1973), converting it and improving it technically for years. Christian Och tells how he came into contact with French classics and why he prefers them to German automobiles. For Hossein Niemann-Ardehali and his mechanics, the great passion is racing - he reports that in addition to selling vehicles, the personal hobby comes into play: driving races and technically preparing the cars for it in advance. When it comes to vehicles, everyone has their own personal preferences. But all screwdrivers have one thing in common: pure passion for their job.
