Ram Truck to Convert Garages into ‘Ram Caves’


If your idea of a good time is hanging out in your garage, Ram Truck has a contest for you.

The truck line is sponsoring a competition to transform garages into customized “Ram Caves.” Three lucky winners will not only get the garage of their dreams, they’ll get design and renovation advice from Bob Vila or representatives from the Charles & Hudson DIY web magazine or The Art of Manliness blog.

Chris Feldman, owner of CMF Services in Clawson, a landscaping, handyman, and snow removal business, says “a pool table would be cool. Plus a new Ram truck to put in there.”

In all seriousness, Feldman, 36, would add a flat screen television and neon advertising signs for beer and liquor to his three-car garage. He already has a wood-burning stove to heat the space, but it’s not hooked up.

Feldman and others interested in a custom garage makeover can enter by submitting a photo and short essay that makes the case for why their garage should be renovated at ramcaves.com through Oct. 6. The sponsors will film each renovation, and release video of the process in December on YouTube.
