Devin Booker: Chevy Aficionado

Loving cars is a family tradition

-

Three-time National Basketball Association All-Star Devin Booker is riding high this season as his Phoenix Suns have the best record in the league and have clinched a playoff spot. Booker gained clout in collector-car circles during the 2021 NBA Playoffs when he rolled into the Footprint Center in a variety of classic cars on his way to work.

“This right here is Pretty Penny,” Booker said in an Architectural Digest interview. “This is what I drove to game one of the (NBA) finals, it’s a ’59 Impala ragtop. All original, how it came in ’59 and this is what introduced me to collecting cars, this is my first piece.”

The former University of Kentucky Wildcat is a General Motors fan, with a Buick Grand National as his daily driver and a Buick Grand National GNX in his collection, but he has a love for Chevys with family ties to Corvettes.

“1975 all-white Corvette, my grandfather used to work on it every day,” Booker said in a Corvette promotional video. “Every time I’d go to his house he’d be in the back and that was my introduction to cars. My dad’s a collector now, and now I have the means to be able to collect.”

Booker’s collection features a first-generation Chevy Blazer with a lowered stance, top removed and a blue patina exterior. He found the Blazer in Utah and dubbed it “Uncle Larry.” Rounding out his collection is a 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS finished in black cherry.

“I usually keep it Chevy, you know,” Booker said. “I have a lot of Impalas.”
