Mark Phelan of Detroit Free Press recently caught up with MÖTLEY CRÜE's Nikki Sixx and spoke to him about his collection of cars.
Sixx's Vehicles: 1957 Chevy Bel Air, Porsche 996, Chevrolet Suburban, Ford Excursion, customized Harley-Davidson
Question: When did you get your 1957 Chevy? Nikki: "About 10 years ago. I bought it from a guy who restored it for his class reunion. It has a 454-cubic-inch V8 bored out to 510 inches and runs two-stage nitrous. It's a bad-ass ride. I drive it all the time."
Q: And the Harley? Nikki: "I've had a bunch of them. The Hard Rock hotel bought a lot of them to display. I've had this one about two years."
Q: What other vehicles do you own? Sixx: "I've got a 600-horsepower twin-turbo Porsche 996. I drive it all the time. Our family cars are a black Ford Excursion with a silver flame job and a black Chevrolet Suburban with a blue flame job."
Q: What do you like about cars? Sixx: "Automobiles are really an amazing drug for me. Everything about them. How they look, how they ride, how fast they go. I get into the '57 Chevy and I'm transported to another time."
Q: What's some good driving music? Sixx: "AC/DC, JUDAS PRIEST, THE BUZZCOCKS and, of course, THE RAMONES. From my own songs, I'd say 'Kick Start My Heart'."
