    AC/DC singer Brian Johnson owns a massive car collection, many of which are priceless. Does he ever drive them? How does he treat them? Carefully but not insanely, VH1 Classic Radio found out:

    "I have an adage that I always stick by: Never buy something that you can't park, which means, you know, if you have to park it in a parking lot and you're sitting eating dinner going, 'Oh my god, I'm gonna have to check the car,' it's not worth it, it's just not worth it," he said.

    Johnson continued, "So I always try to get something from the early 20th century which is worth a lot of money and all that but weighs three tons and nobody can drive it because the gas pedal is in the middle and you have to turn magnetos on and dynamos, all this kind of stuff. I can park that because people just smile when they see it and take photographs."

    Do you have a favorite type of car?
