Tim Allen reveals his current car collection
Any list of famous car fans should include Tim Allen. The actor has an eclectic collection of muscle cars, supercars and assorted classics tucked away in a former Southern California printing press, and recently took a tour of the Petersen Automotive Museum.
The two-part video series features a wide variety of cars, but it’s clear Allen has a soft spot for Ford. The collection includes a 1972 Bronco that Allen gave his wife that he doesn’t like to drive because of the short wheelbase. Allen also owns a rare RS200 Group B rally homologation special, a Shelby Cobra, vintage and modern Mustang GT350s and a modern Ford GT. He said he sold a Porsche Carrera GT to get the Ford because he felt the Porsche was dangerous.
Moving on to General Motors, another star is the 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS with the LT5 V-8 from a C4 Corvette ZR-1. The sedan completed a 12.9-second quarter-mile its first time on the drag strip, Allen said. It also has a 1968 Restomod Camaroand a modified Nova.
European sports cars include a Jaguar E-Type, a Volvo P1800 and a Ferrari 330 GTC, which Allen says needs to be driven often to keep it in top shape (beware, Ferrari owners) as well as several early Porsches, what Allen says. are really just Volkswagens.
Allen also has a Tesla Model 3 that he says he has a “love / hate relationship” with and takes multiple hits in both videos. He said he wasn’t against electric cars, but didn’t seem to have a lot of positive things to say about the Model 3.
These are just a few of the highlights. Watch both videos (they last about 20 minutes each) for the full tour of Tim Allen’s car collection.
