Bubba Wallace has the kind of name that sounds like a truck driver. And it’s true – he not only drives a Ford F-150 when he’s tootling around town, but he was a driver in the Xfinity Truck Series before he made the jump to NASCAR.
The truck he has now might not be able to reach the top speeds he got used to in the Xfinity Truck Series, but it has all the features a driver loves. Wallace drives a Chevy when he’s on the NASCAR track, and it makes us wonder if a switch to a Silverado is in the cards.
This Brilliant Driver Got Himself a Smart Car
We've already seen a car or two from Lewis Hamilton's garage, and here's one that you might not have ever seen before. He has a LaFerrari, McLaren P1, and a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG, but one of the rarest in his collection is the Smart “Brabus” Roadster. It's a two-seat sports car that Smart made between 2003 and 2006.
The Roadster can reach a top speed of 109 MPH, and while that's certainly enough to take on the highways and byways of everyday life, it might not be enough for a racer who knows plenty more about speed.
Another Chevy for Jimmie
Jimmie Johnson's second car, and second Chevy, on this list, is the electric Chevy Volt, and he won't hear a bad word about them: “It's a great car to drive and uses a better alternative of power source.”
But Jimmie's love for Chevy goes beyond the Bolt, and the Stepside mentioned above. He drives them during his races, and the cars have turned him into one of the most celebrated drivers. The car company has treated Jimmie well if his trophy case is any way to measure, and Jimmie has responded in kind.
This Million-Dollar Car Still Looks the Part
Nigel Mansell may be in his sixties, but he still has the moves to show off on the road. And his Ferrari F40 is the perfect car to do it in. He's the second most victorious Formula One winner overall and won the F1 Championship in 1992, as well as the CART Indy Car World Series in 1993.
The F40 he owns is worth around $400,000 – or at least it was around the time of purchase. Nowadays the cost has skyrocketed thanks to the incredible sports car design, and some models have even sold for a million dollars at recent auctions.
Joey Logano's Second Appearance Speaks of His Love for Rat Rods
Logano really has a love of old cars. Going even further back in time than his Econoline Van is his 1939 GMC pickup, which he lovingly calls a Rat Rod. While the term means some specific things among car enthusiasts, it might not actually fit the bill here.
Logano has probably done plenty of work to keep the engine running, but he's let the exterior rust and fade, which adds plenty of stories and character about a cool car. It even has a unique decal on the sides: “Logano Fuel and Service.”
