With the Mid West preparing for another round of heavy snow, it seemed like the perfect time to be thinking, and dreaming, about all those special places where our favorite classic cruisers get parked to wait out the arctic winter months. One such garage-mahal belongs to classic-car enthusiast John Petras. This is where he keeps his drool-worthy rides, such as a ’66 Candy Apple Red Ford Thunderbird, a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air and a 1957 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight. While he’s waiting for that sweet spring thaw, he cranks up Oldies music on his vintage jukebox (a key element of any great garage) and wastes away those dark winter months until he’s back behind the wheel and hitting the open highway.

Garage spaces like this can make even the longest of bitterly cold winters bearable.
