With the elections close to a month away, NEWSWEEK took a look into the candidates’ cars. Based on public vehicle-registration records, John McCain and Cindy McCain together own 13 vehicles and Barack and Michelle Obama together own one.
So what’s in McCain’s garage? According to NEWSWEEK, McCain’s daughter owns Toyota Prius, which he claims that he bought for her. His personal ride is a 2004 Cadillac CTS. Other cars in garage include a 2005 Volkswagen convertible, a 2001 Honda sedan, a 2007 Ford F-150, a 1960 Willys Jeep, a 2008 Jeep Wrangler, a 2000 Lincoln, a 2001 GMC SUV and three 200 NEV GEM electric-cars. 11 out of the 12 vehicles are owned registered under Cindy McCain’s name.
Obama and Michelle sold their HEMI powered Chrysler 300C in return for a Ford Escape Hybrid SUV last year – just in time for elections.
