Kobe Bryant | Chevy Impala

Looking for a custom lowrider? Here’s your chance to own a piece of Kobe Bryant’s personal collection (for a hefty price tag).

Back in 2006, Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa Bryant had a 1963 Chevy Impala convertible customized as a gift for Kobe by the guys over at West Coast Customs. I’ve never spotted Kobe driving this Impala before and unfortunately I never will because he’s decided to sell of the custom ride by listing it on eBay with a “buy it now” set at $100,000! Considering Kobe has his Ferrari 458 Italia and a Lamborghini Aventador (along with many other cars), I’m guessing this Impala wont be missed for long.

Sedrick Ellis | El Camino

Sedrick Ellis' El Camino

Sedrick Ellis is a former NFL player for the New Orleans Saints and the Chicago Bears. Known for his love of muscle cars, he added this sinister looking Chevrolet El Camino to his collection. He obviously loves the ‘murdered out’ look, as aside from this mean El Camino, he has a collection of muscle cars he calls his ‘Black Beauties’.

Charles Johnson | Lamborghini Gallardo and 69 Chevy Impala

Charles Johnson Lamborghini Gallardo and 69 Chevy Impala

Carolina Panthers defensive end and team captain Charles Johnson might be nicknamed “Big Money” for his $76 million contract extension he signed in 2011, but he’s definitely not acting like it. The team leader is modest about his success and is more focused on living up to the hype of being a franchise player.

Looking to lead by example so that the Panthers are a top team next season, Johnson isn’t going to be resting this off-season. Instead, he’s going to be working harder than ever to ensure his predictions about his team come true. But he won’t be all work and no play—taking time off to show his rides some love, especially his 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder LP560 and 1969 Chevy Impala convertible. And he loves both equally, explaining how they’re his all-time favorite rides.

“The Lamborghini was my childhood dream car,” he admits. “I knew when I had enough money, I’d get one.” And Johnson didn’t let his large stature stand in his way of getting his dream ride. He had the seats extended in the Lambo to allow him to comfortably take it out for its weekly ride.

Then there’s his custom ’69 Impala, which was sitting in his garage for a full two years before he got around to tweaking it to his specifications with the help of Ultimate Audio in South Carolina. Now it’s dressed exactly how he first imagined it when he purchased it early in his NFL career. And because he’s an old soul at heart, Johnson also has Ultimate Audio fixing up his latest old school, a 1969 Cutlass that will follow his all-black garage theme.

Kevin Dorsey | Chevrolet Impala

Kevin Dorsey Chevrolet Impala

Kevin Dorsey was a solid wide reciever when he played college football for Maryland. After being picked up in the 7th round of the 2013 NFL season he’s awaiting his time to shine and hopefully a solid career of fat paychecks so he can buy more whips. For now, his all new Chevrolet Impala on 20’s will do.

Patrick Willis | 1986 Iroc Camaro

1986 Iroc Camaro | Patrick Willis

1986 Iroc Camaro

San Fransico 49ers linebacker and Ole Miss alum Patrick Willis is heralded as one of, if not THE, best linebackers in the NFL. As a proffessional athlete, Willis could obviously aquire virtually any vehicle he desired so the fact that he copped an IROC of all things is intriguing.

Although I don’t know WHY he would want a third generation Camaro over the first or second, it’s kinda cool that he likes to be different and set his own trends.  This particular IROC looks pretty mean with the bright red muscle car hue and blacked-out (Vossen?) wheels, windows and tails.

Eric Berry’s Black Tahoe on 26s

Eric Berry, the former Tennessee Volunteer, is now playing safety for the Kansas City Chiefs. Here he is standing infront of his black Chevy Tahoe with 26″ Giovanna Dalar 6V wheels with a matte black and machined two tone finish.

Like most of the Chiefs, he got his car customized by Chad Dearth at KC Trends in Overland Park, KS. The wheels have a very aggressive fitment of 26×10.5 all around. I think the 25 series tires are too thin for such a heavy car. I also think the 6 thin spokes on the wheel don’t really match the car.

Great fitment but wrong choice of wheels in my opinion.

Victor Martinez | Convertible Camaro

Convertible Camaro | Victor Martinez

Victor Martinez and the Detroit Tigers are down 0-2 in their series with the Texas Rangers but it might not be all bad if they are eliminated. He gets to drive this awesome Convertible Camaro SS around South Beach. This car was customized by MC Customs and is on point. We love everything about this car.

The simple 8 spoke design of the wheels works really well because of all the orange on the car. The only problem we have with the car is the chrome exhaust. The entire car is black and orange so the chrome exhaust really doesn’t make any sense.

Asdrubal Cabrera’s Orange Camaro

Orange Camaro | Asdrubal Cabrera

orange camaro

 

Asdrubal Cabrera of the Cleveland Indians has his Camaro customized at MC Customs in Miami, FL. This car is definately not for everybody. The wheels are as loud and crazy as it gets, with 24″ Forgiato Mistos. They hooked him up with a great sound system with his name and jersey number incorporated into it.

These wheels are too crazy for my taste and I think it makes the car look silly. These wheels would be perfect for a donk or an Escalade but I dont think they were meant for a muscle car. Also, the wheels are loud enough without the wild color scheme on them, it might have worked with an all black center and orange lip.

David Beckham Camaro

David Beckham Camaro

david beckham camaro


This is David Beckham’s 2010 Camaro customized by Platinum Motorsports in Los Angeles. Looks like Beckham is really trying to fit into the United States with this American muscle car.

The car has a matte gray finish on it – hard to tell from the pictures wether it is a flat gray paint job or a flat gray vinyl wrap. With a flat gray finish like this, the best option for wheels is always matte black. Beckham went with the Agetro V500 wheels in an all matte black finish. The only other modifications I see is a blacked out grille and tinted windows.

The car looks good, very tastefully done and mean. I would have loved to see Beckham do a wide body conversion on his Camaro, that would have been insane!

Carmelo Anthony’s Old Car | 1971 Chevelle

Carmelo Anthony must feel at home with the New York Knicks. He is back on the east coast where he is from as you can see from his black 1971 Chevelle. The entire car is a tribute to his hometown of Baltimore, MD.

It is a small block 350 with Air Conditioning, Automatic Transmission, Cowl Induction Hood and Front Disc Brakes. Painted in the Baltimore Orioles colors with logos.  The stripes are an alligator skin pattern for lack of a better description. The interior is Black with Orange stitching and a custom Rockford Fosgate Stereo with Carmelo’s Initials.

This car was obviously done before he got any NBA money and it is not that nice. This car is currently for sale and the proceeds will go to charity. The winning bidder will also get a signed autograph jersey from Melo – hope its not a Nuggets jersey, that wont be worth much.
