Tyler Hoover seems to think so even if most of us will disagree

A multi-million dollar car collection hardly counts as “dumb” in our world, but let’s indulge Tyler Hoover of the Hoovies Garage YouTube channel for a change. In this video, Hoover takes us on a tour of his car garage, where you’ll see an eclectic mix of vehicles, including a 1985 Mercedes 500 SL, a purple 996-generation Porsche 911, and a Bentley Azure that was once owned by Jean-Claude Van Damme. Hoover does a great job in telling the respective histories of the cars he owns, and the entire collection is more interesting than it is dumb.

Hoover actually has a pretty cool car collection. He owns sports cars like a Ferrari 348, a Mercedes-SLS AMG, a Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster, and an Aston Martin Rapide.

Hoover’s also a collector of diverse tastes. His lineup of performance cars rubs elbows with more everyday rides like a 2004 Nissan Quest van that he’s apparently willing to sell for $5,000.

Can a Multi-Million Dollar Car Collection Really Be Dumb?

There are also a few choice rides that stand out from his collection, including a 1978 Trans-Am that his father used to own and a 1984 Jeep Wagoneer that’s been neglected by the shop that was supposed to fix it.

Hoover doesn’t have the best car collection we’ve seen, but compared to what most of us have, we’d be trading places with this man in a heartbeat if it meant that his entire collection comes with us.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
