Superstar comedian Gabriel Iglesias is a smart man. The stand up comic has decided to invest his money in something a little more responsible than a drug habit or some bad investments. Instead, he built himself a massive warehouse and set about filling it with cars.
But Iglesias isn’t just about snatching up any and every cool car he sees, there’s a pattern that’s pretty obvious as soon as you walk through the door: Gabriel loves his VW vans! With whole who wall of the facility lined with Volkswagen Camper Vans, it’s obvious that’s where Iglasias’ heart lies when it comes to this automotive passions.
These aren’t just any old vans Gabriel has snatched off the streets either. Each one has been painstakingly restored and looks like it did the day it rolled off the showroom floor. While not all of them are super rare, a couple of them are worth a lot of money due to the configuration and window count. You can tell Iglesias and his friends, who help him find and restore the camper vans to their show-quality state, are truly into these rides and everything that makes them so unique.
Of course, there is more to the collection than the wall o’ vans. He also has a couple of Volkswagen Beetles and even a late model Camaro-turned-Trans Am that looks and sounds killer. With 700 horsepower on tap, it probably has more power than any 10 of the vans put together.
Gabriel is still on the lookout for more rides to add to his collection, saying his museum is still “about 8 cars away from being cool”. However, with a pile of cash and a team of buddies on the job, we doubt it will take him too long to get the rest of the rides he’s looking for to complete his collection.
