We don’t mean to brag or anything (as we proceed to write an entire article about it) but there are a crazy amount of celebrities who love Fords! You may already know that the former late night host Jay Leno has an entire collection of Mustangs, but did you know that other celebrities like Patrick Dempsey and the head of state himself-President Obama-are also Ford owners?? Yeah, we didn’t think so. So without further ado, let’s give it up for our star fans!
Not only is the three-time Grammy winner a proud owner of the 2007 Mustang GT, she is also the spokesperson for the “Warriors in pink” initiative, an apparel shop started by Ford Motor Company that donates 100% of its net proceeds to breast cancer charities.
The commander-in-chief is the proud owner of a 2008 Ford Escape that he purchased right before being sworn into office. He actually took a trip to a Kansas City assembly plant where he thanked the workers who had a hand in making his vehicle. He mentioned that he and Ford have “a little history together” with a car that is still in mint condition.
Many people know the 49-year old actor as “McDreamy”, an attractive neurosurgeon on the hit medical drama, “Grey’s Anatomy”. When he is not busy acting, he can be seen competing in a specialty Mustang FR500C in the Grand-Am Road Racing KONI Series. Off the track, he rides around in his very own 1965 Ford Mustang Coupe.
After dropping his first album, the Detroit-native decided to buy a Ford Mustang Convertible with his first royalty check back in 1999. He added a set of custom wheels and changed the car’s color from red to purple before auctioning it off to a fan in 2003.
When other celebs were off purchasing expensive cars with their hard-earned cash, this 22-year old actress/singer stuck with her Ford Escape, one of the best-selling SUVs in America. This reliable vehicle boasts features like a six-speaker sound system and reclining rear seats. No wonder she decided to stay with her Ford!
The producer behind famous films like “Remember the Titans” and “Pirates of the Caribbean”, drives a 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 when he’s not hanging around a movie set. This car can actually be seen in the movie “Gone in 60 seconds” as “Eleanor”, a modernized version of the 1967 edition.
This 6-foot-4 television host is an avid fan of his 1992 Ford Taurus SHO, which he brought with him all the way to LA when he moved there to host the Tonight Show. As both an entertainer and a funny man, he often features the vehicle in his comical skits. O’Brien also took his interviewer on a ride in the vintage Ford during a 60 Minutes interview.
Last but not least, we could not wrap up this article without talking about the former late night television host Jay Leno and his very impressive collection of Ford Mustangs, one of which includes a 1965 Shelby GT350 and a 1966 Shelby Cobra. He loves them so much that he got them autographed by the very man who designed them, Carroll Shelby himself! In addition to the Mustangs, Leno is also the owner of the 1966 427 Ford AC Cobra and the 1966 Ford Galaxie 7.
