Here's a story that caught Wease's eye...
Question: Which celebrity would you expect to buy a custom car worth $1.1 million?
You probably assume the answer would be Chris Brown or Justin Bieber, but you'd be wrong. Actually, Steven Tyler is the one tooling around Los Angeles in his Hennessey Venom GT Spyder.
The Aerosmith singer showed up at the Stuart House benefit with bandmate Joe Perry, but all anyone wanted to talk about was the car.
And yes, it's pretty unique — only five were made, according to Yahoo! Autos. The ride can hit 200 miles per hour in 16 seconds, making it the fastest car in the world.
Maybe some people are impressed by this, but we just think it's a lot of cash to drop on a depreciating piece of equipment. Why not spend that cash on a new house? At least that's an investment.
Then again, we're not exactly car aficionados — especially not for ones that are nicknamed "the best way to die."
