Stepside Chevy $39K This 1949 Chevy Stepside truck is exactly the vehicle any classic car collector would long to have. Jimmy Johnson is certainly pleased to own it. He told Men’s Journal, “It sounds good and hauls ass—it’s got a Corvette engine under the hood.”
The beautiful truck might be almost 70 years old now, but it still runs like a vehicle that was manufactured this year. Jimmie himself has stated that although it might look a bit old, it’s extremely comfortable to drive around in. It’s also got a really powerful engine that gives the vehicle a great sound along with all the engine-power you could ever ask for. No matter how much you weigh it down, it’ll run without the slightest complaints. Jimmie isn’t about to hit retirement any time soon, so we’ll just have to wait and see if he gets a new favorite vehicle. He seems like he won’t be leaving this truck in a hurry.
Ferrari 458 $291K The world’s greatest sprinter Usain Bolt lives up to his name. “Lightning Bolt” is a nine-time Olympic gold medalist who was born in Jamaica in 1986. In 2018 he retired from sports after his footballer career fizzled. Bolt’s many sponsorships include Puma, Gatorade, Virgin Media, and Apple. His social media income from sponsorships makes him the third-highest earner in the athletics area. He also co-founded an electric scooter company.
His entrepreneurial spirit and his sponsorships allow him a net worth of $90 million, hence the Ferrari 458. Bolt loves his Ferrari. It’s the only thing faster than he is. He reveled in the rare opportunity to test-drive the 48 Italia at Ferrari’s test track Maranello, Italy. Of course, he had to have it. After the test-drive, he said, “It’s a little bit like me; very reactive and determined!”
Lamborghini Murciélago $380K Janet Jackson is known for her legendary music career, nearly overshadowing little brother Michael Jackson’s fame, and for the “wardrobe malfunction.” Isn’t it funny how important seemingly minor events become? This gorgeous golden yellow Lamborghini Murciélago is one of the superstar’s favorite supercars to drive. It’s no surprise the pop diva chose to purchase the $380,000 sleek machine. Lamborghini is a legendary company.
It was founded by Ferrucio Lamborghini. The history of the supercar starts in 1963 when Ferrucio Lamborghini challenged Ferrari and unveiled the 350 GTV. In 1966, Lamborghini took the competition by the horns with the Miura sports coupe, leading to the Aventador and the Murciélago. The hypercar was born. Jackson’s model was introduced in 2001.
Buick Roadmaster Convertible Coupe $8K NASCAR racer Ryan “Rocket Man” Newman has been racing stock cars since 2000.

This 1949 Buick Roadmaster Convertible Coupe holds a special place in his heart.
It was gifted to him by his wife for his 30th. She picked it out because of its starring-role status in the movie Rain Man, Newman’s favorite flick. It was one of three Roadsters used. She paid just $7,800 for it. It’s a priceless gift. The NASCAR celebrity adores the Roadmaster. He drives it once every few months.
