    As tribute to the King of Pop - Michael Jackson, Steve has a look through some of his more unusual cars on his 60th birthday.

    1990 rolls Royce limousine

    As one would expect limousines are part and parcel of a celebrity life style and Michael had more than one Rolls Royce limo.

    1988 GMC Jimmy High Sierra Fire Truck

    One of the oddities within the collection was a fire truck, painted with Neverland Fire Dept sign writing. However it isn’t quite clear why Michael owned this.

    1909 Detamble replica

    Another unusual purchase by Michael was this Detamble replica, especially when he could have afforded a genuine example.

    1997 Neoplan Touring Bus

    Naturally no pop star is without a tour bus and Michael was no exception. This bus featured cream leather interior, as well as a bathroom made from gold, granite and obviously porcelain.

    1988 Lincoln Town Car limousine

    And here’s another one of Michaels limos. The Lincoln Town car was popular with musicians and even Elvis had one.

    1993 Ford Ecoline Day Van

    The day van was a very popular vehicle in America, and like a lot of Americans Michael owned one. His Ecoline was fitted with Televisions and games consoles.

    2001 Harley Davidson Police Motorcycle

    It wasn’t just cars Michael had in his collection, as he also owned this Police spec Harley Davidson. But I have to admit that it’s a good match for the GMC Fire Truck.

    image.png.122b6ab8cc566ec0bf0689489fd66957.png

    1954 Cadillac Fleetwood

     Another American icon, and a must have in any car collection is a Cadillac. This car comes from a great time in American car design and this particular car was featured in the filming of Driving Miss Daisy.

    1988 GMC Jimmy personality

    One of the least luxurious vehicles in Michael’s fleet, but non the less practical.

    GOOD POINTS:
    • An interesting collection of vehicles

    • Mercedes W212 E Class saloon facelift
      The Mercedes W212 E Class was originally launched in 2009 to replace the well-built W211 version, which itself had helped recover Mercedes reputation at building reliable, long lasting cars after the quality control issues of the late 1990s/early 2000s. There was no doubt that both the car and Mercedes engineers had big shoes to fill but thankfully the gamble paid off as the new model was able to build on the good reputation of its forbearer. The W212 was not only bigger than the previous model it was also more refined.

    • Road trip through Nevada & Arizona
      Las Vegas – a city synonymous for gambling, partying and generally a play ground for the rich and famous. However, what if you want a change from the hustle and bustle of the city and see more of what the silver state has to offer? The answer is to hire a car and I have devised a perfect road trip which allows you enjoy some of the amazing scenery, ghost towns, mining towns and route 66 which all helped make the states of Nevada and Arizona both famous and rich. Below is a picture of the planned route.

    • 2018 Ford Mustang Convertible
      The ford mustang – an American icon but does the 2018 model make a viable purchase? Steve went to Las Vegas to find out.
      I start this car review in an unusual fashion, as I have a confession to make. When I landed at the Las Vegas McCarran airport I was expecting to be driving away in the 5.0 V8 version of the Mustang, however, due to a mix up I, in fact, ended up with a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.3 Ecoboost version with the automatic gearbox. However, I must stress that the Ecoboost engine isn’t lacking in performance as it produced 313bhp and 319 of torque. Unperturbed I felt this to be more fitting to our UK readers where the Ecoboost engine makes more financial sense, both in purchase cost and running cost.

    • MG3
      I intended to find out by test driving the new MG3 which is a new small hatchback and designed to bring the MG back to the masses. The MG3 I had on the test drive was the top of the range Style model with a price tag of £11,695. With any new car in this highly competitive sector first impression count and the MG3 does not fail to disappoint.
