Great article over the weekend in the New York Times about Michael Jennings. Jennings, who has bounced around the NFL now for a couple years and is currently trying to secure a spot with the NY Giants, has also been pursuing his other dream of building custom cars at the same time. Don’t bring him an S-Class though. Jennings’ shop specializes in the realm of the old school – think 26’s on an Impala.
As someone who grew up wishing for a ’96 Impala myself (yea, I was that kid), I wish Jennings nothing but the best. Having built some rides already for others in the NFL, Jennings might soon have a following…even if it isn’t in the world of football.

On a side note, and on the theme of pro-athletes and their custom car ambitions (and not just driving them), I have to give some hometown love to the Piston’s Lindsey Hunter, who runs the successful Detroit Custom Concepts. You can bring him an S-Class.
