"Auto buffs should pick up Richard Newton's "Ultimate Garage Handbook.""
Street Commodores" (AUS), June 2006
"This book will do two things: make you drool with envy and put your bank balance in serious jeopardy. More than most books we've reviewed, Ultimate Garage Handbook" betrays its American origins and idiosyncrasies throughout, but you should consider it a great source of inspiration for your own garage or workshop project.
"Still, the best reason to buy this book is just for sheer inspiration. Whether you're just looking to clean up the space you've already got or you're building a new house and want to get your garage workshop needs sorted before the first brick is laid, this book will fill in all the blank spots you'd normally forget.
"We'd recommend this book to anybody who spends more time in their garage than with their wife or girlfriend, or single guys that wish to die happy but alone."
