Dream Car Garage was a weekly television show produced by Westward Wind Productions for 11 seasons between 2002 and 2012. The series was produced in Halton Hills, Ontario. Its host was Peter Klutt, a car enthusiast and the owner of Legendary Motorcar Ltd., where many of the vehicles featured in the show came from.

From 2002 to 2008 Klutt's co-host was motor journalist and race announcer Tom Hnatiw, who was famous for the phrase "Do you need a car like this? No. Do you want a car like this???" He was succeeded in 2009 by television personality Michelle Jobin, primarily known as Global News weather presenter, for two seasons. Jobin's successor from 2011 to 2012 was comedian Marni Van Dyk. The Canadian racing driver Ron Fellows was an occasional guest co-host from 2008 to 2010.

The show - generally rather heavy on product promotion, even more so in later years - focused on what it considered to be the "dream cars" of the regular, "everyday man". It featured a Classic Dream Car segment presented by Klutt, which cantered around an older car that would appeal to collectors or simply a nostalgic buyer, as well as a Modern Dream Car segment, presented by Hnatiw, which involved a modern supercar or high-performance vehicle.
