    I can't afford fancy cars, but every time I see one I'm grateful for guys and gals who prioritize doing business with a specialty car manufacturer. The world would be a pretty boring place if we all had to decide between a Camry, Accord, or Mazda6.



    Guys see me drive up to the golf course and assume looking at my ride that I'm not a car guy. Wrong. I've ripped old FJ40's down to their frames and kept a VW Westy on the road for 20 years doing 90% of the work myself. It's just not in the cards for me at the moment. Such is life.



    If I had two majors under my belt and a huge contract with a sporting clothing company I'd be tuned in to the Michael Fux sell off coming up. That'd be a fun day to shop. I'd also rent track time, but to each their own.




    Have you ever been to Jon Shirley’s (believe that’s is name) open house or museum day? He lives in Seattle and is said to have the most extensive Ferrari collection in the world including several running f1 cars, one of which was Michael Schumachers. He opens his garage up once a year for people to just come look.

    I'll go a little off topic...Here's my pick of the top 3 athletes with the best car collections (this doesn't include all, but rather some)



    Christiano Ronaldo:
    • Rolls Royce Phantom,
    • Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4,
    • Audi RS6,
    • Mercedes-Benz C220,

    • Porsche Cayenne,
    • Aston Martin DB9,
    • Audi R8,
    • Ferrari 599 GTO,
    • BMW M6,
    • Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano,
    • Maserati GranCabrio
    • Bugatti Veyron,
    • Ferrari F12 TDF


    Floyd Mayweather:

    floyd-mayweather-cars.jpg
    • 1996 600S Mercedes,
    • Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG,
    • two Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse units – black and white,
    • Ferrari 458 Italia Spider,
    • Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano,
    • Ferrari 430 Scuderia,
    • Ferrari Enzo,
    • Jeep Wrangler ‘TMT Edition’,
    • 2016 Rolls-Royce Phantom,
    • Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster,
    • customised ‘Money’ Lamborghini Murcielago,
    • Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita,
    • Bentley Mulsanne,
    • McLaren MP4-12C,
    • Maserati GranTurismo,
    • Porsche 911 Turbo S,
    • Bentley Flying Spur


    Mike Tyson had quite a list back in the day:
    • Cadillac Eldorado,
    • Cadillac Seville,
    • Rolls Royce Silver Spur,
    • Rolls-Royce Corniche,
    • Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 560SL,
    • Rolls-Royce Stretch Limousine,
    • 1990 Mercedes Benz 500 SL,
    • 1995 Ferrari F50,
    • Ferrari 456 GT Spyder,
    • Lamborghini Super Diablo Twin Turbo,
    • 1997 Bentley Continental T,
    • 2000 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster,
    • Jaguar XJ220,
    • Bentley Continental SC,
    • 1995 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit,
    • Range Rover,
    • Porsche 964 Speedster,
    • Rolls Royce Ghost,
    • Jaguar E-type,
    • Aston-Martin Lagonda,
    • Ferrari Testarossa,
    • BMW 850i,
    • Cadillac Escalade,
    • 1986 Lamborghini Jeep LM002


    My personal favorite though is:

    Kawhi Leonard


    kawhi-leonard-1997-chevrolet-tahoe.jpg

    Kawhi Leonard is one of the most intriguing players out there. Playing for San Antonio Spurs and earning almost $18 million in 2017, he definitely has enough money to drive whatever he wants. However, he still drives the 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe. Of course, it is in mint condition. Obviously, this guy isn’t into cars that much and once he said he will drive it for as long as he can. “It is a fine car, it paid off”.

    Anyone else noticed how much farther back Rory's previous gal has the seat pulled back in that Ferrari?



    The one car I would love would be the older Supra turbo from the 90's. A dealer in Calgary had a NEW one for sale last year for approx 75k !! SWEEEEET

    The racing driver point is a great one. Michael Schumacher used to drive a Fiat 500. A very good friend races GT3 stuff and he drives a Golf, and he could drive whatever he wants.



    I’ve asked him a couple of times why he doesn’t drive faster stuff, and he says that there is no way that you can drive any road car even close to the limit without getting banned, and if you can’t drive flat out then it’s simply not fun for a racer who spends their life pushing cars to the limit. That gets even more the case when you have a supercar, because even on an empty road you can’t get close to the limit.



    They simply don’t see the joy in driving at road speeds, as they are able to push so much harder when they’re racing. Even my granny can drive flat out in a straight line, but it’s cornering that separates good drivers from bad. The top guys can go so much faster than us, that they can’t get close to their limit on the road, so they don’t try!

    Well...the difference could be (since I have more than 10 sets of clubs) that I'll get to use each of those sets multiple times a season. Think his original point is that most of those cars won't get driven much at all (if any) in a given year since their jobs as a golf pro involves a lot of travel and very little time to be at home (and available to be driving those beautiful cars).



    It's their money though...and they can spend it however they want...even if the cars just sit there...in a garage....begging to be taken out on the road...
