Best Vehicles Owned By Danny Koker Of Counting Cars

Anyone who has watched Counting Cars is a fan of Danny Koker. He’s the man behind Count’s Kustoms and a very talented mechanic. He’s been turning cars into jaw-dropping pieces of art for decades.

Danny also boasts an impressive collection of over 50 cars, aside from being the owner of Count’s Kustoms and the star of the show. These are the coolest rides in his garage.

Since Danny Koker already owns a souped-up first-generation Shelby GT350, it would only make sense for him to add a first-gen Chevrolet Camaro to his collection as well.

The Camaro owned by the star of Counting Cars is a pristine SS version from 1968. It’s a custom blacked-out restomod. What’s more, this muscle car is full of modern comfort features that makes it an ideal daily driver.

Lamborghini Countach

When it comes to classic cars, it simply does not get better than a radical Lamborghini Countach. This Italian supercar is a real icon of the 1980s. Danny Koker, the star of Counting Cars, is a lucky owner of two units.

Danny owns a white LP500, similar to the unit driven by Leonardo DiCaprio in the Wolf of Wall Street. It comes powered by a roaring V12 motor mounted behind the driver. It was only available with a 5-speed stick shift.

Everyone loves legendary American muscle cars, and the star of Counting Cars is no exception. In fact, multiple vintage muscle cars make up Danny’s enormous car collection. The ’68 Dodge Charger may just be one of the coolest ones, though.

The example owned by Danny Koker is completely blacked out to complete that intimidating look. It’s restored back to its former glory primarily using original parts. It’s a real jewel for any muscle car fanatic.

A third-generation Oldsmobile Cutlass is another cool American car owned by Danny. What’s more, his unit is an extremely rare variant of the car.

As you can probably expect by now, a regular Oldsmobile Cutlass just would not cut it for Danny Koker. Instead, the star of Counting Cars got a hold of an Indianapolis Pace Car replica from ’72. Oldsmobile only made 630 of them, and less than a quarter of them were drop-tops!

1969 Cadillac Deville

This enormous two-door Cadillac Deville from the late 60s is mint, quite literally! Hardcore Counting Cars fans will probably remember this stylish ride very clearly.

Danny Koker had his unit customized in-house at Count’s Customs during one of the episodes of Counting Cars. The massive coupe has lots of cool custom touches, such as pinstriping on the hood and door handles, or the one-of-a-kind mint paint job.

Ferrari Testarossa

The Testarossa is arguably the second most iconic car of the 1980s, right alongside the previously mentioned Lamborghini Countach. It would be a hard choice to pick between the two, hence Danny Koker decided to add both of them to his impressive private collection.

Danny owns a sleek Ferrari Testarossa, complete with a timeless blacked-out paint job. Its unique flat-12 cylinder motor is rated at a whopping 385 horsepower. In effect, it can sprint to 60 miles per hour in around 5 seconds.

1966 Ford Shelby GT350

A first-gen Ford Mustang simply had to make it into the impressive automobile collection of Danny Koker. After all, it is easily one of the most sought-after American cars of all time. Naturally, a regular 60s Mustang simply wouldn’t cut it for the owner of Count’s Kustoms.

That’s why Koker went with the souped-up Shelby GT350 from ’66, powered by a 4.7L K-Code V8 motor. Ford only built 1373 units that year, making the GT350 one of the rarest variants of the first-gen Mustang.

1932 Ford Roadster

Believe it or not, this crazy hot rod was actually Danny Koker’s daily driver. It’s easily one of the most extravagant vehicles owned by the star of Counting Cars.

This particular unit is arguably even more special than any other ’32 hot rod, too. Back in the 1970s, this ’32 Ford Roadster was transformed into a Hot Wheels car, complete with a flaming hot paint job made by Von Dutch, a legendary hot rod artist, and mechanic.

1970 Dodge Coronet

A pristine fifth-generation Dodge Coronet from 1970 is yet another B-body muscle car owned by the star of Counting Cars.

1970 was the final production year of the fifth-gen Coronet. It saw a minor cosmetic facelift which makes the car easy to distinguish from older examples. The base Coronet came fitted with a weak flat-six, though Dodge offered a variety of V8 powerplants too. A massive 440-cubic inch big-block is the most sought-after by collectors today.

Porsche 911 996 Turbo

Danny Koker clearly isn’t all about American muscle cars and Italian supercars. A while back, he added a pristine Porsche 911 996 Turbo to his collection. The car was built in 2001 and modified by Techart, a famous German tuner.

The 911 owned by Danny Koker has quite a history, too. It was formerly owned by Nikki Sixx, a bassist from Mötley Crüe. Now, the car proudly sits on display at Danny’s showroom.

1955 Chevrolet Gasser

This crazy Chevrolet is easily one of the best projects done by Count’s Kustoms to date. Danny Koker and his team decided to customize the car to show it at the SEMA show in 2018. They went all out, to say the least.

This monstrosity is powered by an enormous 496-cubic inch big-block V8 rated at anywhere between 600 and 650 horsepower. As far as the styling goes, the custom paint job is perhaps the most striking feature of the car.

1974 Plymouth Roadrunner

Plymouth introduced the Roadrunner back in the late 1960s. At first, it was meant to be a cheaper alternative to the upscale Plymouth GTX. Within the next years, however, the Roadrunner became a proper muscle car in its own right.

Danny Koker owns a ’74 Roadrunner, the final model year of the second generation of the car. It came with a 318-cubic inch V8 as standard, though buyers had plenty of options for upgrades. The most powerful version came fitted with a big-block 440-cubic inch under the hood.

Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

Theoretically speaking, the Karmann Ghia may just be one of the most common vehicles in Danny Koker’s collection. Afterall, the German automaker built nearly half a million of them during the car’s 19-year long production run. These days, a Karmann Ghia became quite difficult to come by.

This sporty Volkswagen shared many of its components with the popular Beetle. The example owned by Danny is, naturally, slammed to the ground. A vibrant red paint job is the ideal finishing touch for the car that accentuates its gorgeous curves.

1956 Chevrolet Stepside

Fans of Counting Cars will probably remember this Chevrolet pickup truck very well. This vintage Stepside proudly represents Count’s Kustoms. In fact, it’s been the shop truck for years.

The custom paint job ensures that this truck will lure a crowd at any car show. It’s also a great way to bring in new customers, too. After all, who wouldn’t trust a shop that’s capable of creating such a beauty?

Dodge Viper

When it comes to American sports cars, it does not get much better than an old-school Dodge Viper. This two-door monstrosity is spartan and radical, especially the older generations. It’s no surprise that Danny Koker owns one.

This powerful sports car first hit the market back in 1992. It was offered with a massive V10 engine, allowing it to reach 60 miles per hour in just 4.6 seconds. It lacks modern safety features such as traction control or ABS, making the Viper a real challenge to drive.

Jaguar E-Type

The E-Type is perhaps the most legendary Jaguar sports car of all time. It’s both elegant and powerful, and it was an exceptional high-performance machine back when it first came out. Today, they’re highly sought-after by car collectors all over the world. Danny Koker is among the lucky owners.

There were multiple variants of the E-Type, though the V12-powered Series 3 is easily the most valuable one. It was only in production for 3 years starting in 1971.

Buick Riviera Boat Tail

Danny Koker and his team at Count’s Kustoms somehow managed to make a ’73 Buick Riviera even more gorgeous than it already was. It’s no surprise that Danny decided to keep it in his private car collection afterward.

This particular Boat Tail Riviera was turned into a jaw-dropping land yacht. The two-door coupe received a custom airbrushed paint job as the ideal finishing touch for the project. It has got to be a head-turner, that’s for sure.

Chevrolet Corvette C3

Danny Koker, just like any real American car aficionado, is the owner of a Chevrolet Corvette. After all, it was America’s first real sports car. The star of Counting Cars is the owner of a spectacular third-gen Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

General Motors unveiled the third-gen Corvette, dubbed the C3, for the 1968 model year. It featured a brand new design inside and out, more powerful engine options, and a sleek removable t-top roof.

Porsche 911 Slant Nose

There is a great chance that you have never heard of this rare variant of the Porsche 911, unless you’re a die-hard fan of the German automaker. It hit the market back in 1986, shortly after the co-owner of Tag Heuer commissioned Porsche to create a road-legal one-off based on the 935 race car.

Porsche owners around the world wanted a vehicle similar to the custom one-off, hence the automaker launched the Slant Nose variant of the 911 930. Just 984 examples were built, and one of them is owned by Danny Koker.

Kellison J6 Panther

Most petrolheads probably don’t even know what a Kellison is. This super-rare sports car was only produced for a few years throughout the early 60s. The vehicle is based on the platform of a 1962 Chevrolet Corvette, though the body is completely different.

Unsurprisingly, Danny Koker decided to showcase the finished Kellison J6 Panther at the SEMA car show. It must have been a great way to lure in new customers for Count’s Kustoms.
