Mixalot Porsche1

Ever dream of owning a superstar’s ride?   Well, here is your chance.  Seattle’s own Sir Mix-A-Lot is selling his cool Porsche.  It is a 1984 Gemballa Porsche 935 slantnose convertible

There is something special about a celebrity’s car.  Maybe you want to be just like them, or admire their taste in the finer things in life.  Sir Mix-A-Lot (aka Anthony Ray) is known for putting Seattle on the rap scene in the 1990s, and for his love of fast and exotic automobiles.  He is often seen at the Redmond Exotics Car Meet with Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Porsches.


Mix’s ride, known as Blurple, is going for about $49K and has had extensive modifications.  And this baby has back too…

Cat’s Exotics, who is selling the Porsche for Mix, is even offering a personal meeting and autograph with the rapper (@therealmix).

Sure, very few individuals have a glass garage/display museum like Cameron’s father had in the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (and I would build a shrine for that Ferrari 250 GT California too).

But if you had the means to build a car temple, where would you build it?

Would you put your prized collection inside your living room like this guy (Ferrari 355)?


Or would you build a specialized garage/lounge for your ride (1984 Ferrari 512 BBi)


Or would you instruct in your will that you need to be buried with your car?  (1964 Ferrari 330GT)

How about a glass wall between your garage and main home to gaze at the beauty?  (Ferrari Dino)

Or, would you commit a sin and simply bury it behind a home in Los Angeles (1974 Ferrari Dino 246) – this was a case of stealing it for insurance payout…

As you can see, based on pictures above, that Ferrari owners want to worship their rides.  Are they crazy?

Here is a Porsche 911 fanatic and his special home

Art is in the eye of the beholder; thus it seems completely logical to me to display cars in a museum-like atmosphere.  As long as they are not garage queens….

senna honda nsx senna

One of the greatest drivers of all time, Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna, helped fine tune the cornering/handling with Honda’s engineering team during the NSX prototype testing at the Suzuka circuit in Japan.

Back in time when supercars where temperamental, difficult to drive and unreliable, Honda redefined the supercar category by making a car that had Honda reliability, and high performance comparable to the Porsche 911 and Ferrari 348.

According to this eBay link, this NSX was 1 of 3 that Senna owned, and is now up for sale on eBay.  The item is currently bidding at 51K GBP ($79K). Not a lot of evidence in the listing to support the claim of being owned by Senna, but still a cool item.
