The Most Expensive Car In Joey Logano's Collection
By ALVIN REYES
American stock car racing driver Joey Logano is a genuine, dyed-in-the-wool speed freak. He started racing quarter midgets at the age of six, won the Eastern Grand National Championship and Junior Stock Car Quarter Midget Division at seven, and currently holds the record of 14 straight wins at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Logano is among the highest-paid NASCAR drivers today, earning an estimated $9 million per year driving for the No. 22 Ford of Team Penske (per Sportscasting). He has the means to amass an impressive collection, but his garage is unusual for a multi-millionaire compared to other racing drivers like Lewis Hamilton and Hollywood celebrities such as Jay Leno.
Since Logano drives a Ford in the NASCAR Cup Series, his 35-40 car collection almost consists entirely of Ford vehicles. He has a 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 (affectionately called the Mach 22 after his 22 Cup number), a 1961 Ford Econoline pickup, a Fox Body Mustang, a 1946 Ford Super Deluxe Sedan, and a 1953 Ford Cabover Ramp Truck.
One of his more notable acquisitions is a 1935 Ford pickup truck, a vintage beast equipped with an 800-horsepower Cup motor and a five-speed sequential gearbox. Logano also has an original Ford Model T that could cost up to $246,000 depending on the year, condition, and level of restoration (per Classic.com).
Logano has repeatedly said on his YouTube channel that the Ford Model T is among his favorites, but the most expensive car in his car collection is a 2017 Ford GT that reportedly costs $1.2 million. His Ford GT has rounded 22 decals on the fenders, and he made sure to purchase a unit with a 22 VIN to reflect his lucky racing number.
