Dallas — Nov. 26, 2007 — Executives with Dream Garage USA have inked a long-term lease with Texas-based
eCarLink LP, one of America’s first Internet marketed automotive dealerships, to open a high-end automotive
boutique in the flagship Dream Garage-Dallas location that will be located in the Park Cities area of Dallas.
eCarLink will be the anchor tenant by claiming 12,000 sq. ft. of the facility’s 18,000 sq. ft. of retail space. eCarLink
brings a vibrant, high-end automotive sales operation featuring the world’s finest marques of luxury, sport, exotic and
SUV vehicles. The retail location is expected to open spring 2008.

“We’re pleased to offer our clientele the opportunity to purchase their newest dream car for their Dream Garage
through this relationship with the eCarLink team,” noted Jack Griffin, a principal at Dream Garage USA. “Our goal
is to build communities that cater to the automotive lifestyle and eCarLink represents the best in their field. Thanks to
the creative talents of Len Critcher and Brett Stacy, their retail location will be unlike any other in the region. This is
a perfect fit because both of our companies were built on the foundation of delivering premium products though
world-class service. ”

Dream Garage is a national group of luxury garage suites that feature secure, upscale, private automotive residences
for prized collections. Each Dream Garage will feature a high-end repair facility specializing in the maintenance and
repair of exotic, luxury and classic automobiles. In addition, each location will include a Retail Plaza shopping area
and a comprehensive concierge service that caters to the automotive needs of discriminating automobile enthusiasts.

Texas-based eCarLink was founded by Len Critcher and Brett Stacy. They were among the first to capitalize on
automotive Internet marketing by lowering overhead and selling direct to consumers, bypassing traditional sales
people and finance managers.

“Since 2001 we’ve pioneered online marketing strategies for luxury automobiles that have led to over 6,000 sales
worldwide by our team,” noted Len Critcher, president of eCarLink. “We learned about Dream Garage USA just
after we decided to build our first retail location in the Dallas area. Not only is Dream Garage the right idea at the
right time, but it’s also led by the right people who are passionate about the automotive industry. After meeting with
the Dream Garage team we found their business plan perfectly complemented our growth strategy.”
Dream Garage Announces Partnership With eCarLink (2/2)

The eCarLink retail boutique will reflect the company’s online roots and feature a hi-tech, digital theme that is similar
to its online presence. It will feature the ambiance of a contemporary, upscale lounge with soft music and open
seating for clients. Traditional car salesman cubicles and back offices will be replaced with a classic bar and stools,
plasma touch screen to view inventory and the first all-digital paperwork closing process. Clients can take their time
and get to know the cars or be in and out in a matter of minutes.

“Clients can shop our online inventory in a very non-threatening way, absent pressure sales people,” added Crticher.
“That philosophy is a critical part of our online success and our retail location will create the same atmosphere where
car buying is an experience and not a chore. By working with Dream Garage, we hope to accelerate our growth”

“We’re thrilled that Len, Brett and his team are joining the Dream Garage family,” added Griffin. “It’s an indication
of the high standards Dream Garage is setting for our clients.       Our goal is to become the premiere location for
automotive residencies and services. eCarLink helps us make that commitment a reality.”

TreVista Group L.P., is the real estate development partnership and builder behind Dream Garage. The Dallas-based
company is directed by Jerry Mooty and Travis Blalock, who are developing the national chain with Dream Garage
conceptual creator and co-founder, Jack Griffin. Dream Garage-Dallas will be located near Love Field in Dallas.
The group broke ground on their flagship facility in August 2007 with construction completion scheduled for Spring
