So forget shiny new sports cars; these celebrities are all about the timeless appeal of classic automobiles. Read on as we ride through the garages of 15 celebrities who proudly drive vintage cars.

George Clooney


Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney isn’t just known for his charm on screen—he’s also a car enthusiast who loves vintage vehicles. A prized possession in his collection is a stunning 1959 Chevrolet Corvette, initially owned by Clooney’s father, who bought it brand new in 1959.

Ben Affleck


One of Ben Affleck’s favorite cars is a head-turning 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS. Although his Chevelle SS isn’t your everyday stock car, he’s customized it with a deep maroon paint job that makes it stand out.

Determined to own one, he eventually found a restored ’67 Pontiac GTO in Texas.

Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr. holds his 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SE in high regard, primarily because it was his mother’s car and represents the last generation of hand-built Mercedes-Benz models. Originally equipped with a 2.8L gas engine producing 158 horsepower, the 280SE featured a leather and wood dashboard and leather seats. Downey Jr. modernized the car by replacing the inline 6-cylinder engine with a diesel engine and converting the fuel system to biodiesel.

David Letterman


Former late-night host David Letterman has built a $400 million net worth from his TV career. With annual earnings of $28 million, he spends significantly on buying and maintaining vintage motorcars. Letterman’s collection features classic cars from the 1960s, including the rare 1955 Jaguar XK 140. This flagship sports car, produced in only 9,000 units between 1954 and 1957, is now valued at $137,000.

Ralph Lauren


One of the most remarkable and rare cars in Lauren’s collection is the 1938 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic. He first saw this unique car at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance years before acquiring it in the late 1980s. Given its age, the car needed restoration, meticulously handled by Paul Russell of Essex, Massachusetts, who spent over 9,600 hours over two years bringing it back to life.

While her musical achievements are well-known, her love for cars is less publicized but equally impressive. Among her prized possessions is a 1959 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II. The Silver Cloud II has a 6.2L V8 engine and automatic transmission and accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 10.9 seconds.

Eric Bana


You might recognize Eric Bana as Bruce Banner, also known as the Hulk, but his talents extend beyond acting. Throughout his career, Bana has led a double life as a racing driver, competing in some of Australia’s circuit events. One of his most famous cars is the 1973 XB Falcon Hardtop, the focus of his documentary, Love The Beast. Tragically, the Falcon was nearly destroyed in a crash during the challenging Targa Tasmania race in 2007.

Jay Leno

Many A-listers splurge on flashy wheels, but Jay Leno takes a different approach. His $50 million collection is more like a museum. Notably, the comedian owns over 180 motorcars, all lovingly restored and displayed in a 140,000 sq ft garage. Among his prized possessions is one of the 106 McLaren F1s ever made. Leno told CNN that this would be the first car he’d save from his collection, which isn’t surprising given its value of around $12 million.

Tim Allen


Tim Allen’s garage would not be complete without his custom-designed 1956 Ford F-100, which he acquired at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale. Interestingly, this powerful truck features a 5.0-liter Crammer crate engine from Ford Performance. Painted sleek black, the vehicle has a 5-speed manual transmission; this pickup is a marvel to see and drive. Custom modifications include ergonomic body panels, a shortened bed, and an extended cab.

Although Cage’s Jaguar isn’t in its original condition, it has a 3.8-liter engine, roll cage, aluminum bonnet, doors, and boot skin.

Bruce Willis


The 1972 Ford Bronco is a classic SUV known for its off-road capabilities. This vehicle is a favorite among collectors and off-road enthusiasts and is part of Bruce Willis’s garage.
