For $600K, Keep Your Car in This Ultimate Man Cave

Eric Murphy’s 4,500-square-foot pad has a 900-bottle wine cellar, gourmet kitchen and a red Ferrari F430 parked by the sofa.

This isn’t your average man cave. It’s a car condo at AutoMotorPlex, 40 acres (16 hectares) of garages overlooking a wetland outside Minneapolis. Here boomers hang out with their cars, watch sports on TV and commune with fellow auto enthusiasts. Eager to cash in on an accelerating trend, developers are throwing up car condos around the U.S., including a project with a 1.5 mile (2.4-kilometer) test track planned on the grounds of a defunct General Motors plant near Detroit.
