Amazing Johnathan’s car collection has been covered by various media outlets over the past several years as the collection has grown. What once began as a collection of two classic cars has taken on a life of its own and become a massive fleet of 27 rare vehicles including a 1932 Pierce Arrow, 1967 Pontiac GTO and a 1972 Dodge Challenger. Amazing Johnathan takes his high-end collection seriously and even employs a full-time mechanic to ensure that all vehicles are street-legal and in pristine condition. When the vehicles are not being driven, the collection is housed in Amazing Johnathan’s 10,000 square foot, climate-controlled warehouse, which is modeled after a drive-in movie theater. Amazing Johnathan is among several other celebrity comedians famous for car collecting including Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld and Tim Allen.
