NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - For Mike Werchek, the dream of building the ultimate man cave is over.

The Naples Daily News reports ( that Collier County commissioners on Monday rejected Werchek's plans to build a place where auto collectors could store their cars and hang out with like-minded souls.

It would have looked more like a residential subdivision, offering air-conditioned suites with second-story lofts, oversized garage doors, private bathrooms and Internet access. It would have included a private club for gatherings and special events.

Geared toward the wealthy, the suites had a starting price in the $200,000s.
