When you have seven homes, that’s a lot of garages to fill. And, the McCains — John and Cindy Lou, have made sure their garages are full.
According to DMV records obtained by NEWSWEEK, John and Cindy Lou own 13 cars.
McCain’s personal ride, is a 2004 Cadillac CTS. The rest of the McCain fleet includes a 2005 Volkswagen convertible; a 2001 Honda sedan; a 2007 half-ton Ford pickup truck which might come in handy on the Sedona ranch; a vintage 1960 Willys Jeep; a 2008 Jeep Wrangler; a 2000 Lincoln; and a 2001 GMC SUV.
The McCains also own three 2000 NEV Gem electric vehicles, which are bubble-shaped cars popular in retirement communities.
Cindy Lou’s ride is a Lexus with personalized plates that read MS BUD.
Which brings us to Barack Obama. The Illinois democrat — who McCain calls an “elitist,” owns one car with his wife, Michelle. The Obama’s ride is a 2008 Ford Escape hybrid.
