It’s a well-known fact that Travis Barker has an incredible collection of vintage convertible cars but it looks like the drummer is aiming to offload some of his stash.
According to TMZ, Barker is partnering with famed car auction company Barrett-Jackson to sell a few of his vehicles to the highest bidder.
He’ll be selling off three cars specifically – a 1941 Cadillac 62 Series Convertible, a 1960 Cadillac Coupe Deville, and a 1972 Chevrolet K5 Blazer. The 1941 Cadillac is expected to pull in up to $100,000 while the 1972 Chevy should rake in a massive $200,000.
The decision to sell the vehicles comes from his want to expand other areas of his life and make room for different vehicles. Barker also recently purchased a warehouse in Southern California where he’ll store the rest of his car collection as well as operate his clothing brands and new record label DTA Records.
Barker is an avid fan of Cadillacs and has at least two Cadillac tattoos including their logo on his chest and a Cadillac script sprawling down the side of his rib cage.
Barker recently launched DTA Records with their first release being “Gimme Brain,” a collaboration between Lil Wayne and Rick Ross. The label is a joint venture between Elektra with Barker assisting with artist development as well as using it as an outlet for his many projects and collaborations.
