The pile-up of snow and ice may be to blame for the collapse of a six-car garage in Plymouth.

John Magnusson says his neighbor called to tell him the roof had collapsed, and he thought, "Yeah, right. I'm a car guy - don't tease me."

Magnusson's 1982 Lincoln Town Car and a 2005 Ford Mustang were crushed in the collapse. You may have seen the cars cruising the Woodward Dream Cruise.

The family pickup truck and his wife's everyday PT Cruiser were also damaged. The PT Cruiser was recovered and will be able to be repaired. The wife had parked her car in the garage and went into their home only a short time before the roof collapsed.
