For just $100,000, you can own Kobe Bryant’s pristine 1963 Chevrolet Impala

Kobe car 1

There are two kinds of people who should own classic cars: People with the skills, patience and knowledge to properly keep them up themselves, and people who can afford to pay other people to keep them up for them.

I don’t know how good Kobe Bryant is with cars, but he certainly falls into the later category.

His pristine 1963 Chevrolet Impala that he had redone is now being auctioned off on eBay for $100,000. (Hat tip to car enthusiast KD at Ball Don’t Lie for finding this.)

The car was built by West Coast Customs for Kobe as a 2006 Christmas gift for his wife Vanessa (according to the auction site). This was a complete and total rebuild and if you buy it you get Bryant’s registration and insurance card, so you can tell your friends you bought Kobe’s car.

What might impress your friends more is the spread on the car in Lowrider Magazine. Depends on your friends, I guess.

I just bought a new car, so I’m out. It’s on you to pick this up.

Here are a few more photos of the ride.

    That car looks like it came out of a ’94 Snoop Dogg video. I love it!

    Yeah, I’d sell that car too. It was already played out a decade ago.
