Geoff Rowley | 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback

Co-owner of Flip Skateboards and pro skater, Geoff Rowley has been tearing up the skate scene for over two decades. The British 37-year-old resides in California, and in 2000 he received Thrasher Magazine’s prestigious “Skater Of The Year” award.

American culture and lifestyle has obviously rubbed off on Rowley as he owns this gorgeous 1968 Mustang Fastback. You can’t beat a classic, especially something as iconic as the Mustang Fastback.

Greyson Chance | 1966 Ford Mustang

Greyson Chance is an pop rocksinger, songwriter, pianist who made a name for himself in 2010 by performing Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” at a music festival. The 51-million YouTube views created a doorway and he made and appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show. Chance’s debut album, Hold On ‘Til the Night was released in 2011, helping him boost his YouTube hits to over 14-million views.

This 16-year-old is known for having a passion for the classic Mustang, and after finding his dream car, he’s bought one.

The 1966 ‘Stang features a 200ci six-cylinder Challenger engine under the hood. Boasting 300 horses, the engine transfers its power through a three speed Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission.

The kid has even given her a name – “Moses”

I like the fact a teen has a passion for the classic, particularly this modest example. You can’t really go wrong with a Mustang, but if you’re going for that retro look (notice the rusty wing?), forget the chrome rims.

Hugh Laurie | Ford Galaxy 500

Across the pond in the UK Hugh Laurie has graced the screen for over two decades, performing alongside his comedy partner, Stephen Fry in A Bit Of Fry & Laurie, the TV adaption of P.G. Wodehouse’s Jeeves & Wooster and the BBC’s Blackadder.

Stateside, Laurie shot to fame when he appeared as Dr. Gregory House in the Medical drama, House, a role that saw him gain status as one of the best paid actors on TV.

Laurie is looking pretty cool in his fire truck red Ford Galaxy 500 convertible. Although he is British, he certainly knows an American classic when he sees one.

Harry Styles | Ford Capri

When you are an extremely popular member of a boyband the chances are you will take a few minutes out from your female adoration and pop into a car showroom or two. Harry styles has visited many, from Ferrari to Land Rover, Porsche to Jaguar, but this British Ford is one of his coolest rides.

The One Direction star owns this 1970’s Ford Capri. It might look unassuming to American onlookers, but because of it’s 3-L V6 and its comparatively light weight, the Capri was the boyhood dream throughout the 70s and early 80s. It was popular in British TV, too – whilst The Dukes oF Hazzard had the Charger, The Professionals had the Capri.

Retro classic and highly sought after in the UK, especially the older model Harry is pictured with.

Top 10 Modified Celebrity Cars

Although this may sound like a fairly straight forward Top-10 look into the broad and varied world of celebrity cars, when it comes down to finding 10 “top” celebrity mods, it’s actually harder than you think. Celebrities are known for their often big and eccentric egos, and they like nothing more than displaying this in their cars. When money is no object and your ego is big and/or eccentric, car mods and visions usually go terribly wrong. Take the Hulkster below and his SRT Viper, for instance, and you see what I’m up against here. The Mk I Viper happens to be one of my favourite cars, especially in red with the factory yellow rims, but this is going too far.

So after much internet trawling, I present to you some of the better and tasteful celebrity modifications. This is entirely subjective, of course, but anyone finding the above attractive shouldn’t even be reading this article in the first place.

Now this is more than you’re average modded out car. This serious piece of machinery is a Hennessey Venom GT Spyder, a highly-modified version of the Lotus Exige. Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler bought this one for a cool $1.1M. You wouldn’t think someone wearing that sock/sandle combo would require a car capable of 0-200-mph in 15.9 seconds.

Known for hosting The Car Show on Speed TV and The Man Show, Adam Corolla has a very nice car collection. Apart from his race-spec JDM livery and Lamborghinis, he’s also got a very nice Aston Martin DB9 modified by legend Chip Foose. Apart from a hood scoop, Brembo discs and calipers and some black aftermarket 18″ wheels were fitted.

Not actually in shot in the collection, this is a very rare Ford RS200 owned by a very lucky Tim Allen. For a funny man this car couldn’t be anymore serious. The RS200 Evolution is a Group B lunatic of a car, helping the FIA finally make the decision to ban Group B rally. Most of these cars ended up in collections like this, and this particular car has just 3,500 miles on it. It doesn’t look that outrageous, but consider this: 0-60-mph in 2.1 seconds on tarmac… and that was in the late 80s.

This modified car is one of many unique and rare cars owned by TV legend Jay Leno. This monster is powered by an M47 Patton tank engine and has a custom aluminum body. It has 810-bhp and weighs in at 4300-kg (1/11th of the actual tank’s weight).

It’s thought Leno is set to upgrade with fuel injection and twin turbochargers to double the bhp to 1600-bhp, so around 400-bhp per tonne. Not that it will trouble Leno’s wallet, but this tank car will only manage 5-mpg.

Ralph Lauren is obviously a man with natural style and vision, and this shows in his car collection. Pictured above is the fashion mogul driving his Porsche RUF CTR-3 around the Hamptons. More than just a body kit and custom styling, the RUF CTR-3 features the kind of technology that gives you 750-bhp, a top speed of 233-mph and 0-62-mph in 3.1 seconds.

WWE wrestling star, Bill Goldberg is known for his love of muscle cars, and his clone of the ’70 Satellite to a Plymouth Superbird is simply stunning. The Superbird was either loved or hated in NASCAR, but it was eventually banned because of its aerodynamic advantage and 200+mph speeds.

Reality TV star, Barry Weiss owns his fair share of classic customs like this ’47 Cadillac. Being an avid collector for most of life, he knows when he’s hit upon something special. Is there anything cooler than doing a burnout on your own drive in a custom caddy?

Singer Cee Lo Green is looking chilled in his modern spin on a ’35 Auburn Speedster. Loving the flat paint combined with this red centre hubs.

Years before the Fast & Furious franchise began, Paul Walker (Bryan) admitted to laughing at the JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) cars, but thanks to the F&F movies, he found himself totally infatuated by them. His personal garage features many JDM turbo rockets, but it’s this slammed Datsun 240Z that does it for us.

If I think about Sly Stallone driving I picture that ultra cool grey muscle car he uses in Cobra, but unfortunately he doesn’t actually own it. He does, however own this old school hot rod, a ride he likes driving around Hollywood.

Top Footballers Cars

Running back for the San Francisco 49ers, Frank Gore is pictured here chilling with his Maserati Quattroporte. Giving the car a little flavor, California Wheels threw on some 22″ burgundy/chrome Asanti AF138s to match the body color – tastefully done, too.

It seems the 49ers players have vision and style when it comes to their rides as here we see Glenn Dorsey with his custom Rolls Royce Phantom. For an NFL player dabbling with customising such a regal car, I think the tints and rims go really well.

I personally detest this crazy Donk fad but thought I’d include one as NFL players seems to like them. Darren McFadden, AKA DMC or D-Mac, is a running back for the Oakland Raiders. I guess the bonus of donks is being able to get to those hard to reach areas when washing your car.

49ers offensive lineman, Chilo Rachel probably chose this whip to allow for his substantial 6’5”, 323 lb frame. Nice to see some rims that match the vehicle well.

Former NFL running back for teams like The Jets, The Bears and The Chiefs, Thomas Jones sure knows how to strike a meaningful pose, and if any car is worth posing in front of is a fire engine red Rolls Royce Phantom.

I had to include this ride as I want it… badly. Tight end for the Tennessee Titans, Delaine Walker definately knows what to do with a classic – forget the Donks and slam it into a Lowrider.

Anthony Davis plays defensive tackle for the San Francisco 49s and clearly knows how to make a jeep look cool. The 23-year-old is a behemoth of a man, so it’s probably best to remove the doors to allow for any overhang.

49ers linebacker,  NaVorro Bowman has his Porsche properly blacked out… in a good way. Simple window and rear light tints and spoked alloys with the yellow callipers on show is the way to correctly pimp out a Panamera.

It’s a well known fact Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush has a passion for buying cars. The cream of the crop so far in this list is this 1967 Shelby Mustang GT 500 – think Eleanor from Gone In Sixty Seconds. Not a lot to say apart from: Superb.

LaRon Landry plays safety for the Indianapolis Colts and is a player who also buys a lot of cars. He owns a Kawasaki green Lamborghini Murcielago but I think this matte white Aventador with black rims earns the right to grace this page.

Conan O’Brien | Ford Taurus

Conan O'Brien | Ford Taurus

TV host and actor Conan O’Brien drives a 1992 3.0L V6 Ford Taurus, and despite its size, it produces a decent 220-bhp. It’s far from exotic but there’s a kind of retro cool factor going on there, so it’s not a lost cause. Oh yeah, Robocop drove one…

Dwayne Johnson | Ford F150

Dwayne Johnson | Ford F150

Dwayne Johnson AKA ex-wrestler The Rock has found further fame in film. Thanks to The Scorpion King, Fast & Furious 6 and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Johnson can now add “actor” to his resume.

Like Johnson’s enormous arms and torso, his ride mirrors his bulk in the form of his black Ford F150 truck. He aptly named her the “Black Gorilla”.

Joe Johnson | Ford F650 Super Truck XUV

Joe Johnson Ford F650 Super Truck XUV

Joe Johnson is Brooklyn Nets shooting guard and small forward looking to make a big impression on the road. This six-door Ford F650 originally cost around $176k, but after all the modifications Johnson wanted were applied, it came in at well over $200k – below you can see the before/after picture.

The sheer bulk of this thing, with its acres of chrome and iridescent paint make this one imposing vehicle. I like the fact it’s a monstrous truck and effort and money have been thrown at it to make it even more of a brute – it looks as though it’s in the final transition of turning from a Ford F150 into the Incredible Hulk.

John Buck | Harley Davidson Ford F250

John Buck | Harley Davidson Ford F250

Jonathan Richard Buck is a catcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Highly regarded for his defensive ability, Buck has played for the Mets, the Marlins, the Toronto Blue Jays and the Kansas City Royals. Not jumping aboard the muscle/exotic train, Buck has chosen this cool Harley Davidson edition of Ford’s F250. With the oversized arches and huge amounts of play in the suspension, this Ford looks like it could enter Monster Jam.
