Luke Ponsford salutes 20 rock stars who love to drive and their favorite rides in Hagerty’s TOP 20: ROCK STARS & CARS.
They drive fast cars, luxury cars, one-off exotics, custom creations, sports cars, race cars, mini-cars, a van and even a plug-in hybrid vintage Lincoln. But they all have one thing in common: They love their cars and music.

An accomplished author he is as passionate about his music as he is about cars, especially his 600-plus horsepower, Cobra-powered ’65 Lola T70 Spyder that he raced for a couple of years and vintage ’28 Bentley Le Mans Tourer, above, and modern Rolls-Royces and range Rovers.

While his home base is Sarasota, FL, where he is a member in good standing of the Sarasota Café Racers, he and his wife Brenda, also a racer, are often spending time competing in historic racing events here as well as in the UK and Europe.
