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. rating -> 4/10

Reggie Bush | 1971 Chevelle SS

This 1971 Chevelle SS was built for Reggie Bush of the New Orleans Saints by Streamline Designs. This is some very impressive work on the Chevelle. Unlike other athletes who hand the keys to their cars over to shops and get very little out of it, Reggie Bush got hooked up on this car. A complete ground up restoration.

Where to begin…Lets starts with under the hood. It is a 6 speed automatic equipped with an LS3 680 Horse Power engine. The wheels are 22″ and 24″ chrome Asantis, 24×15 in the rear with 405/25/24 Pirelli tires! As you can tell from the stance, it has air ride suspension. It also has 16″ custom wilwood brakes and 6 piston wilwood truck calipers.

This should be a lesson to other athletes,  take your car to a place that knows what their doing. rating -> 9.5/10
