    I was driving to Houston from Austin yesterday morning. I noticed a brand new great convertible behind me and pass me by. I looked over and thought I saw Matt Leinart. I'm sure it probably wasn't him but when he passed me... his Texans personalized plates seem to confirm that it was Leinart. I tried to catch uo to get a second look but he was moving too fast for me. I don't speed in cars very well. I know Leinart was in California for the BYE and hitting 290 isn't exactly the route one takes from LA but damn... that REALLY looked like him.

    Anyone know what kind of car he drives?

    The car I saw was a Shelby Mustang. Candy red with white stripes. Brand spanking new.

    Leinart flew in early this evening from Cali, was not him whom you saw.

    Leinart probably drives something eco friendly, like a prius.

    Funny that, I know somebody with one of the first Prius hybrids ever.

    There for a while, a guy that works at a car customizing place used to post on here fairly regularly. He did several of the Texans' cars and was good friends with a few of them.

    CT Customs or something like that. Haven't seen him post in a while.

    But he might know what Leinart drives.

    No it wasn't him Nitro. Leinart drives red '76 Pinto.:shots: Or, maybe I had too much beers.

    Go Texans!!!

    With him sitting on it, it looks like a highly modified go-cart.

    I routinely drove these sort of cars for years. Being a valet supervisor at the right locations has given me the opportunity to drive these things albeit mostly only over short distances.

    They're actually pretty roomy in terms of legs. Plenty of leg room similar to a Corvette. You should have seen the Ferrari that Shaq rolled up in a few years ago. Parking that thing was difficult because the seats were fixed. I could not scoot it up. I was holding on for dear life to the steering wheel trying keep my eyes above the dash. They are most certainly altered to fit their owners.

    Next time you are at Reliant Stadium on gameday, go to one of the outdoor "smoking" balconies on the northwest side of the stadium. They overlook the players, player family and staff parking lot, you can see all their fancy cars there.
