Jerry Seinfeld is love-struck with a German car. Of his 10-car strong collection

Jerry Seinfeld

If Nicolas Cage has a long-standing love affair with Italian cars, comedian Jerry Seinfeld is love-struck with a German car. Of his 10-car strong collection, 8 of those were Porsches and 1 is a Volkswagen.  The remaining 1 is a Fiat. One of his most prized possessions is a Porsche 959, which is one of the rarest classic supercars models that are still in tiptop condition today. The famous comedian and TV actor reportedly bought the 959 at an auction for around US$700,000. His other Porsches include a 1955 Porsche 550 RS which has an estimated value of US$60,000-US$3 million and 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS with costs around US$500,000-$1.4 million. He also has a 1964 Porsche 911 which he bought at US$400,000 and had it restored by Cavaglieri Restorations for about US$250,000. Anyone could have purchased a couple of regular family cars with the restoration cost alone.

Celebrity who’s an avid car collector

Nicolas Cage

Another celebrity who’s an avid car collector and reportedly blew part of his fortune away on expensive cars is Nicolas Kim Coppola, popularly known as Nicolas Cage. The crown jewel of his collection is a Ferrari Enzo which he reportedly bought for US$670,000. Named after the automaker’s founder, Enzo Anselmo Giuseppe Maria Ferrari, the car is one of the most sought after by serious car collectors. Cage has often been seen around town driving this dream Ferrari. Perhaps owing to his ancestry, his love for Italian cars seemingly knows no bounds as he also bought two other Ferraris besides the Enzo. These are the 1959 Ferrari 250 GT and the 2007 Ferrari 599 GTB. Aside from these cars, Cage also owns a 2001 Lamborghini Diablo and 1971 Lamborghini Miura SVJ which once belonged to the Shah of Iran.

James Douglas Muir “Jay” Leno owns 181 cars

Jay Leno

James Douglas Muir “Jay” Leno owns 181 cars but he admits the two cars closest to his heart are his McLaren F1 and Mercedes SLR McLaren. Leno paid close to a million dollars for the McLaren F1 while he bought his Mercedes SLR McLaren for approximately US$500,000. Though he did say that he would save the Mercedes SLR McLaren and McLaren F1 in case of a fire or flood, it seems he also is a Lamborghini man. How so? His collection of 181 cars includes several Miuras, a Countach, and an Espada. He reportedly paid US$215,000 for his 1986 Lamborghini Countach. He also has several good old American muscle cars like the Oldsmobile Toronado and a 1963 Chrysler Turbine. His vast car collection, some of which are supercars, just proves that making people laugh must be good business.

Rick Ross is the proud owner of the Maybach 57

Rick Ross

William Leonard Roberts II, known by his professional name as Rick Ross is the proud owner of the Maybach 57, touted as among the fastest luxury cars today. The rapper-actor reportedly paid a total price of US$430,000 for his Maybach 57. It’s not known why Rick Ross chose the Maybach 57 for his use. Perhaps he was attracted by the rear-seat DVD entertainment system or maybe he likes to feel the thump of the 21-speaker Bose premium sound system in his Maybach. He also has a Bentley Continental and a Rolls-Royce Ghost to round out the luxury segment of his fleet. Whatever the reason is, Rick Ross always likes to share the good life and invest in his car collection which also included an Aston Martin DB7 and a customized Lamborghini Murcielago LP640-4 Roadster. The latter is reportedly bought for around US$210,000.

Top 5 Places to Drive Around LOS ANGELES

Driving can be a real pleasure if not for the monstrous traffic common in big cities like Los Angeles. Even if your car’s air conditioning and music are on, the pressure, and yes stress, of thousands of cars moving at a snail’s pace can easily make you angry.

Your Car is Part of You

Can you still remember when you got your very first car? Did you recall taking it out for a drive? There is that inexplicable joy in getting inside the very first car you own. There is that strong connection between the owner or driver and his own car. It’s not only about the convenience of getting from one place to another. It’s also the feeling of fulfillment at realizing one of your dreams. Ask any first time owners what they did when they got their first car. Did they immediately take it to work or place of business? Almost all of them said that they took their car for a ride. Some say they drove on some scenic highways while others say they took their family out in their new car for a treat. Would you like to revisit such feeling once in a while?

The Pleasure of Driving

The happiness you felt when you first drove your car along scenic highways may not be long lasting but it can always be revisited. Maybe it’s just what you need after a stressful week at the office. Driving your car, particularly if it’s a convertible, on scenic LA highways can be a great stress reliever. It’s even more pleasurable than hanging out at malls during weekends and holidays. You can bring some snacks with you and enjoy the ride with your loved one or family. Best of all, there are specific points along these famous drives where you can park your car and enjoy the view while munching on snacks. Are you now prepared to discover the top 5 places to drive around Los Angeles? Here they are.

The Pacific Coast Highway

Recognized as one of the most picturesque drives on earth, it begins at the northern border of California with Oregon and stretches all the way to San Diego. The drive allows you to view magnificent panoramas of the Pacific Ocean, sometimes from an elevation of around 300 feet. If you drive at a leisurely pace without stopping, the trip may take approximately 10 hours to complete from end to end. The best way vehicle for this place is a convertible or a Renegade-type Jeep, if you have one. If you don’t, you can always rent these types of vehicles. While you can still enjoy the view on a regular car, truck or SUV, it’s really different if you do it with an open-top vehicle. The fresh smell of the ocean mixed with the strong breeze and sound of the waves lashing against the cliff is pure bliss!

Sunset Boulevard

Who hasn’t heard of this place when dozens of popular movies have scenes shot along this famous strip? There’s even one movie named after it. Stretching approximately 22 miles, it runs from glitzy Hollywood to breathtaking Malibu. It passes by famous Los Angeles landmarks like Bel Air, Beverly Hills, Brentwood, and UCLA. Some people say it’s the perfect place to capture in photos what Southern California life looks like. Unless there’s an ongoing emergency along Sunset Boulevard, road traffic condition is from light to heavy. It’s a great place to drive around, especially so when so many of its points have been featured in movies and TV shows. The best time to enjoy Sunset Boulevard is late at night when traffic is almost non-existent. You can enjoy the dazzling bright lights and famous landmarks dotting the place.

There are many other places to drive around Los Angeles particularly during weekends and holidays. Some are very famous while others are not that popular though they also offer great views for motorists like you.
