Anthony Pettis

“DID YOU SEE THAT?! He went up the wall like a ninja and landed a high kick! Unbelievable! I’ve never seen anything like that! It’s like something out of a movie!!” This was the actual televised play-by-play call when Anthony “Showtime” Pettis landed what has become known as “The Showtime Kick.” That kick, which many consider the greatest highlight in mixed martial arts history, helped him attain the unofficial title of the Most Exciting Fighter in MMA. But with his victory over UFC superstar Ben Henderson this past September, Anthony has now gained a more official title: The reigning, defending UFC Lightweight Champion of the World.

Juicy JOver the course of his career, Juicy J has gained more than enough success to fuel his interest in cars, owning practically every luxurious and exotic make and model that other lyricists can only rap about. “I used to have all kinds of crazy cars,” the 38-year-old rapper, born Jordan Houston, confesses. “When I first got a little bit of money to even a buy a car, I went a bit crazy and bought every one I could f*cken find. I bought myself a Bentley, Maybach, two Benzes… Like I used to be a serious car fanatic.”

Ben BallerWhat hasn’t he done? A sneakerhead before there were sneakerheads; a DJ to head of A&R at Priority and Aftermath Records; street socialite and tastemaker; and currently the go-to jeweler to the stars. He is a jack of all trades. Ben Baller (born Ben Yang) lives up to the hype that he and the media has created. We caught up with Ben to see what the K-Town Hustler has been up to as he breaks down his car game, business, social media, haters and living it up on his own terms.

Tim Miller of Surf City Garage

Tim Miller of Surf City GarageTim Miller, founder of Surf City Garage Enthusiast Grade Detailing Products, has been a car guy all of his life. It all started in 1958 when he was a young boy and his dad brought home a Chevy Sidestep pickup truck, which Tim still owns today. As a teen in Southern California, he watched his older brother work on and race his ’62 Pontiac Grand Prix on weekends and dreamt of having his own car when he was old enough. When he turned 16 in 1970 and with money saved up from working summers, Tim bought his first car, a ’67 Pontiac GTO 4-speed with a 400 cubic-inch motor. Like his older brother, he raced every weekend at local Southern California tracks, such as Orange County International, Irwindale, Carlsbad and the infamous Lions Drag Strip.

Nate Robinson

Nate RobinsonNate Robinson may not be a giant on the basketball court at 5’9” but his personality and talent more than makes up for it. The Seattle, Washington native was first featured in our pages back in 2007 when he was just 23 years old with his first big NBA purchase – a 2005 Hummer H2. Now 29, the former University of Washington cornerback has long since said goodbye to his football years and has made a reputation in the NBA as being one of the most energetic and hardest working players in the league.

Ray Rice

Ray RiceBaltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is pretty modest when it comes to his garage when compared to other NFL players’ collection. Instead of indulging in a head-turning fleet, Rice opts for a few necessities – a play car, family vehicle and his luxury ride.

Chris JohnsonThe artistic parallels between automobiles and tattoos might not ring immediately clear for most, but for the producers of Spike TV’s “Ink Master,” bridging the subjective gap that comes standard with all things art, certainly results in entertaining television. Among the collection of unconventional challenges producers devise weekly to find the cream of the tattoo crop, Season 3 of the reality competition pitted 16 hopefuls against one very difficult opponent – the car grille – for Episode 2.

Steve AokiWhen DJ/producer Steve Aoki needs to test out new material for his albums, he makes sure to bump his latest tracks in his 2012 Audi A8 L W12 quattro, which is why he opted for the best sound system the dealership offered. “The car is an important tool for me to make sure the music is right before I put it out to the public,” he says when we caught up with him in L.A. during one of his breaks before his touring schedule got super busy.

Suzanne Stokes and SouthSide's '56 Bel Air Ragtop

Southern California’s SouthSide Car Club is considered one of the scene’s best Lowrider clubs, known for their clean, period-correct vehicles that embody a sense of nostalgia. Only allowing 1956-1965 Chevys in the club, all of the club’s cars feature the most sought after and hard-to-find Chevy accessories, which can sometimes make the build difficult and expensive.
