Dana White Has Quite The Car Collection

⚡️ Read the full article on Motorious

The UFC man collects more than just fight venues.

Being president of UFC comes with plenty of responsibilities as well as controversy, two things Dana White is very much familiar with. However, you might not be aware the man is also a big time car nut. His collection of vehicles is impressive.

Considering White is reportedly worth half a billion dollars, the man certainly has the means to get his hands on cars the rest of us only dream about driving, let alone owning.

Proving White has a slice of humility in him, the man has kept his first car, a budget-friendly Datsun B210. While it’s not super sexy or among the rarest rides in the world, the B210 is certainly worth something, although we’re willing to be for White the value is all sentimental.

How to Pick a Car to Convert to Tesla Power

From Autoweek

While still a student at Bergen Community College in New Jersey in 2013, Sam Polyak converted his $200 junkyard 1992 Mazda MX-3 to electric drive. That worked so well he took on bigger game: building a 2010 all-wheel-drive Audi S5 with Tesla power.

Out came the tired V8 and in went a motor and inverter from a P85D Model S, producing a car that could reach 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. Also using the Tesla’s full 16-module battery pack yielded 250 miles of range but required sacrificing the back seat. And there were plenty of challenges to get all the systems to play nice in the car—and for the Audi’s many modern conveniences to actually function.

The Dodge WC Command Car was a versatile vehicle used in World War II and later. To meet the needs of the military, this truck was built in a wide variety of body styles, and this four-door body might be the coolest of them all with its rounded door openings, two rows of seating and a removable top and doors. Those huge, flat fenders are easy to see the resemblance to the Power Wagon, which went into production after the war.

You know that saying, It’s the journey that matters, not the destination? Clearly, whoever came up with that one has never sat in a car with two bickering kids in tow.
