It is really difficult to calculate how many cars he actually owns because he bought way too many antiques in his recent show called Fast & loud, though we have tried to take an account of a few which are the most expensive ones which will strictly exclude his entrepreneurship of with Arron Kaufman The Gas Monkey Garage.
He has a collection of cars from the fifties to Ferrari and Postiche. He literally makes his living out of selling some of the coolest cars in the world. Super ford GT 68-Mustang and much more. He is an entrepreneur, auto mechanic, race car driver and media personality who is just obsessed with cars and makes a living out of it as well. And collectively his Gas Monkey has a net worth of twenty million dollars which makes him the owner of 10 million dollars worth business.
So if we add his commercial and promotional videos, shows and home his net worth by the end of 2015 was calculated to be 10 million from garage, 6.7 million from house around two million from his shows and five hundred thousand dollars from his Bar and grill restaurant which clearly points that by the end of 2016 he will be closing nearly around 20 million USD.
