Television viewership and ticket sales may be down for the National Football League, but that hasn’t had any effect on the player’s salaries. At least not yet. Top players make over $30 million a year, just for their playing time. Some of their endorsement contracts eclipsing that number by a wide margin - so you can well imagine that these guys have some serious change to invest in their toys. While some of the NFL’s sickest rides may seem outrageous, there are also a couple of sleepers out there that may cause you to raise an eyebrow. There is no accounting for taste, especially when it comes to the cars that people choose to drive, and here is the proof.
There is not a motorhead in the world that isn’t familiar with Eleanor the ’67 Shelby GT 500 from the movie “Gone in 60 Seconds”. GT Fastbacks normally sell in the 150-175K range but it has been reported that Reggie dropper another $300 thousand to have his restored not only with full matching numbers but as an exact replica of the car that can drive men beyond rational limits. Eleanor has always been something special and this has to be one of the coolest rides in the NFL.
