World-class cars are the objects of desire for a special breed of automobile enthusiast, collectors who are as passionate about their cars as others may be about paintings, stamps, or watches.

In this thrilling tour of 11 of the greatest private automobile collections in the world, readers are given access to an amazing realm that is rarely open to the public.

Wheels: A Passion for Collecting Cars celebrates these incredible collections along with the fanatical car lovers who have amassed them.

Included in this intriguing volume are profiles of each car-obsessed collector: one houses more than 100 postwar bubble cars from Europe and Japan in his Georgia barn, while another has made room at his Napa Valley winery for his stellar collection of sports cars.

Captured in gorgeous photographs taken in the exceptional environments their owners have created for them, these rare custom models, elegant 1930s town cars, sexy postwar European exotics, and fabulously finned cruisers will appeal to classic-car connoisseurs around the world.
