Move over Mercedes. Lewis Hamilton has a muscle car too, and it's a beast. Hamilton shared a photo on Instagram of himself (and his dog) standing next to his Mustang Shelby GT500 in Venice Beach last weekend. Hamilton may own his fair share of AMG's but it looks like Eleanor has a special place in his heart too.

Ken Block unveiled his latest Gymkhana seven car at the SEMA show in Las Vegas yesterday. It took two years to create the world’s first performance all-wheel drive 1965 Ford Mustang notchback. The car is based on the 1965 Ford Mustang notchback and was heavily modified by RTR and ASD Motorsports to feature a 410 cubic inch Roush Yates V8, with a total of 845 hp, mated to a one-off Sadev all-wheel drive system. What a beast!
What do you think of the new creation?
I'm always intrigued to learn what various executives drive, especially when it's someone from a company I like. Case and point is Richard Barton, the CEO of Zillow and formerly of Expedia. Thanks to a recent article posted at Geekwire, I learned that Richard Barton choses to drive a 2013 Ford GT California Custom. For an exec who can probably drive anything he chooses, this is quite the odd Seattle car. The Ford GT rivals cars like the BMW M3 which I would say is a much more popular car in Seattle. Or perhaps a Porsche Cayenne would better fit. I can think of a number of cars but the Ford Mustang is not one.
So what car would you expect an exec like Rich Barton to be driving?
