3. ‘Wiskeyrunner’ Ford Coupe, 1933

Another remarkable car in his collection is the Ford Coupe ‘Wiskeyrunner.’ It has a jagged line running from front to back, which is a unique characteristic.

4. ‘Mambo Coupé’, 1936 Ford

The ‘Mambo Coupé’ is a three-window coupe named after a trunk full of Hawaiian garments. The front grille features a screamin’ chrome skull.

5. ‘Rat Rod’ 1936 Ford Truck

Because of its rat rod style and modified hot rod function, the Ford model called Rat Rod Model drew the famed vocalist’s eye. A 1953 Ford flathead engine, a 6-inch drop tube front axle, and an 8-inch rear end with buggy springs and air shocks power this car.

‘CadZZilla,’ as Gibbons refers to his Cadillac Sedanette, is a mix of early postwar Cadillac design modified by Larry Erickson, Boyd Coddington, and Craig Naff. It features a bespoke deep purple color scheme, as well as a one-of-a-kind interior with a custom Holley fuel injection system and headers.

7.1950 ‘Kopperhed’ Ford Business Coupe

Due to the copper and black color scheme, which resembles a rattlesnake, he has christened the Coupe ‘Kopperhed.’ It’s based on a three-window version of a 1950 five-window business coupe.

8. ‘The Mexican Blackbird’ is a 1958 Ford Thunderbird

Due to a song of the same name, the vintage Ford is dubbed ‘The Mexican Blackbird.’

9. The ‘Slampala’ is a 1962 Chevrolet Impala

By combining two slang phrases, slammed and Impala, he has christened his Impala ‘Slampala.’ A sophisticated air-ride suspension allows the automobile to be lowered to exceptionally low ground clearance, which is one of its standout features.

Over 450 guitars are in his collection

He owns more than 450 guitars in his collection. The following are a few examples of guitars:

1. Melody Maker by Gibson, 1962

At the age of 13, he received his first electric guitar as a Christmas gift.

2. Pearly Gates 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard

His first Les Paul, dubbed ‘Pearly Gates,’ was his first Les Paul. The guitarist is particularly dedicated to ‘Pearly Gates,’ refusing to sell it despite a $5 million offer.

It’s on the majority of albums. Since the beginning, Gibbons has recorded with ZZ-top.

His Life Isn’t Just About Cars And Guitars

That appears to be all he cares about, based on his car and guitar collection. Even if this is only partially true, he has a beautiful personal life.

Since 2005, Gibbons has been married to his true love, Gilligan Stillwater. Despite the fact that they have been married for a long time, they have never had children together. The couple owns a lovely home in Houston, Texas.
