The Many Cars of Joe Biden -- PICTURES

September 6, 2011

Vice President Joe Biden is a car aficionado, having owned multiple classics over the course of his lifetime. He speaks to Car and Driver in its October 2011 issue about his love of cars, and how he laments not being allowed to drive due to security concerns. Here's a look at some of the cars that Biden speaks about.

Cadillac CTS-VBiden's brother owns this car, and Biden drove it down his 1,700-foot-long driveway—as far as the Secret Service would let him drive it. "That thing could probably beat my Corvette," he said.— PHOTO: JEFF LEE PHOTO/FLICKR(JEFF LEE PHOTO/FLICKR)
