A Car Collector’s Dream Garage

As most car collectors grow their collections they face a choice of either to stop adding cars to their collections or consider off-site storage. For avid collector and Closet Factory and Motor Trend Garage Co-owner, John La Barbera parting with his 1958 Porsche 356A Sunroof Coupe was not an option, anymore than stopping collecting was.

His solution was adequate onsite storage with room to grow through custom garage construction. The use of four-post car lifts throughout the garage doubled the storage space.


The green 58 Porsche was restored by the legendary John Willhoit and features a 140 HP engine and tan vinyl interior with oatmeal carpet. The factory sunroof helps to make this car one of the most desirable of all the 356 models. 


The garage’s configuration keeps the collection close at hand for easy accessibility and enjoyment.
