I think I have more sets of irons than I have pairs of non-golf shoes, but no idea how that relates to cars - just can't seem to need more than fit in my two car garage. Finally broke down and got my wife the Subaru Forester she's wanted for a few years - we've now officially given up on life I guess. Headed to our upcoming (but not here!)  golden years getting 34+ mpg at 60 mph - our lifestyle screams gangsters.

I have seen Jack and Barb in that car.  I used to play HS golf against Mike.  He would come by Ibis to watch sometimes.  Mike Nicklaus would show up with most of his team in a champagne/pinkish Lincoln Continental.

Datsun? Lol. Going way back I see.
That brought back memories from having a new Datsun 240z in 1972.....If there ever was a car I owned and loved it would have been the 240z.

Is it too much thread drift to say what we'd drive if we were tour pros?

I'm thinking I'd send a Maybach to a custom coach builder and have it stretched, not a ton, just enough that I could make two big seats recline all the way like a first class airplane.  Have them add a privacy screen.  I'd hire a mysterious looking m'f'k'r to caddie, drive me around, fly my airplane, trim the hedges, etc.  Actually I'd try and find two of them.  They'd work 2 weeks on and two weeks off, you know I'd like for them to have a great life too.  I'd expect that they always come strapped.  Anybodies phone goes off in the gallery, dirty hairy shows them that .38.  Why not give a couple of guys 2 or 3 hundred large a year instead of spreading it out.  Get better service that way.

Yes he does, it was built for someone else though i cannot remember who, and he ended up with it. He talked about it on "Comedians in Cars" with Seinfeld.

It's actually a wagon too which makes it even better, and he still has it as of recently.

I love stuff like that, i'm a moderate car guy at best meaning i have a hard time spending on cars, though i do enjoy them, i've been in some doozies. But if i had unlimited cash i'd rather do something weird like that. I bought my wife a Buick Encore, and part of me thinks it would be a bada** rally car if i lowered it a bit and put another engine in there. It's great in the snow already. So if you ever see someone in like a 350hp lowered Encore with gold rally rims, you know i have won the lottery

It was built for Paul Newman.

It was built for Paul Newman.

Story time.  It was years ago now, but I lived by Newman and Letterman for awhile, and actually knew Newman a bit from the vintage racing scene at Lime Rock.  At the time there was a Volvo p1800 race car in my family (nothing too crazy--still street legal, but a real joy to drive to, from, and on the track, and still out there racing AFAIK, several owners down the line).  Newman was well known in that area for his hot rod sleeper daily driver Volvo wagons, so we had a bit of a Volvo bond when we'd run into each other at Lime Rock, even though I was a lot younger and he was racing non-Volvos in different classes.  

For a bunch of years he had a 740 with a warmed over Buick turbo V6, then he had the 960 with a Ford V8 and big supercharger.  The 960 was significantly faster, more luxurious, and better built than the 740.  For a while he also had a development mule that Ross Converse up in Maine would come down to CT and work on, trying to figure out the final details of the 960 build.  Ross sold a kit that was everything you needed to mount a Ford 302 into a Volvo 240.  You could pay Ross a couple hundred for his kit, a junkyard a couple of hundred for any random 302 (Ford made about a jillion of them), and pretty easily double or triple the HP of a stock 240 in a weekend.

When they got the 960 mule where they wanted, Ross built not one but three no-expense-spared conversions with brand new off the dealer lot 960s and crate Ford V8s with all sorts of go-fast bits attached to them.  One was for Newman, one for Letterman, and the third was for some hedge fund guy in the same area who was, like Letterman, commuting from that part of CT down to NYC.  AFAIK, all three of them are still on the road.  Newman's was charcoal, Letterman's was maroon, and the money guy's was dark blue (the prettiest of the three IMHO).  My daily drivers at the time were Volvo wagons with the regular Volvo turbo 4s making about 175 hp, which was plenty for me.  Those 960s made about three times that, and--at that time at least--they'd chew up anything on the road excepting some very very exotic stuff.  

Anyway, Paul Newman was a GREAT guy.  Couldn't have been any cooler, or any nicer.  Just a great guy.  And those Volvo wagons were really cool cars--I was tickled pink when Letterman did a C&C with his.  When they were built they were easily the fastest station wagons in the world, looked totally stock from the outside, and were about as tractable to drive to and from the grocery store as a regular factory 960.  Letterman was well known for racking up tickets in his Porches--he used to joke about it on his show--but that wasn't nearly as big of a problem when he was driving the Volvo.  Good times.

So my dad bought a car (was either a Cadillac or a Town Car, he went back and forth between both a few times) when I was a kid that supposedly had been built for Arnold Palmer but something wasn't right about it so Arnold didn't take delivery. No idea if that was a true story or they were just pulling my dad's leg to get him to buy the car but he used to love telling people the story.

You never know, some guys just don't care about cars. There's alot of stories about athletes driving beaters because it keeps them grounded etc

One of the guys on the Canadian version of "shark tank" still lived in a small house he grew up in. My house is nicer!

So you never know. Someone probably does
Right on.  Kirk Cousins drives an old minivan and he and his wife were living in his in laws basement even though he was a multi millionaire at that point.
