Retro Rides

Whether you’re a fan of Retro styling on your cars or not you have to give props to some of these cool rides! Of course not all of them hit the mark but at least you can’t accuse of them being boring!

Stars and Their Cars

Take a look at these 12 rides that the stars like to roll around town in. Some are cool and some are just plain over the top. I have to say the 1968 Ford Mustang Cobra and the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe are totally cool!

From MSN.com:

Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe
Noted black-on-black (aka “murdered out”) luxury vehicle enthusiast and sometime-international soccer star David Beckham has been spotted driving around Los Angeles in a sleek, blacked-out Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. The ride’s color scheme matches his $400,000 customized Porsche 911 Cabriolet Turbo and jacked-up Jeep Wrangler, and rounds out the luxury lineup in his garage, which also includes a Ferrari F430 and a V10 Lamborghini Gallardo. His wife, Victoria — aka Posh, former Spice Girl turned Marc Jacobs muse and international fashion plate — plays the ivory to Becks’ ebony in a white Porsche 911 Cabriolet.
