Matthew McConaughey, a Rich Celebrity, Has Expensive Hobby (An Airstream)

Matthew McConaughey should make you feel badly about yourself. He’s a nice guy, albeit an idiot, with no actual acting “talent” to speak of. So he takes his millions of dollars and lives on the beach in Malibu in a custom Airstream trailer and does frat guy beach things all day – BBQ, goes running with his shirt off for the paparazzi, plays frisbee with his dog, and then goes inside to his brutally hot girlfriend, Camila Alves. Am I jealous? Of course. My life is pretty much identical, but my house hasn’t been featured in Architectural Digest ever since Mr. Levitt built it. And McConaughey’s Airstream trailer is in AD’s November issue. The article is mostly fluff, but focuses on how McConaughey enjoys cruising around the country in his Ford King Ranch with the Airstream in tow (F-150? F-250? AD doesn’t say). One of the article captions really sums up how much sense it all makes: “The thing about small spaces is that they’re relaxing,” says McConaughey. “You’re limited in your options.” He is now customizing two more Airstreams.”

    Seems Jim Rockford of the "Rockford Files" had this living arrangement idea all figured out years ago. Perhaps the overpaid / overmedia-hyped actor happened to catch the show and copy the idea? I'd be more impressed if this "actor" had a restored mid 70's GMC K10 shortbox for his tow vehicle......

    Well, I'll grant you he's no Paul Newman. Charity, acting chops, car guy etc. But he does look good running without his shirt. And his Airstream is cool, but not in that order.

  • 28-Cars-Later I'm actually surprised at this and not sure what to make of it. In recent memory Senator Biden has completely ignored an ecological disaster in Ohio, and then ignored a tragic fire in Hawaii until his handlers were goaded in sending him and his visit turned into it's own disaster, but we skipped nap time for this sh!t show? Seriously? We really are through the looking glass now, "votes" no longer matter (Hillary almost won being the worst presidential candidate since 1984 before he claimed the crown) and outside of Corvette nostalgia Joe doesn't care let alone know what day it happens to be. Could they really be afraid of Trump, who AFAIK has planned no appearance or run his mouth on this issue? Just doesn't make sense, granted this is Clown World so maybe its my fault for trying to find sense in a senseless act.
  • Tassos If you only changed your series to the CORRECT "Possibly Collectible, NOT Daily Driver, NOT Used car of the day", it would sound much more accurate AND TRUTHFUL.Now who would collect THIS heap of trash for whatever misguided reason, nostalgia for a much worse automotive era or whatever, is another question.
  • ToolGuy Price dropped $500 overnight. (Wait 10 more days and you might get it for free?)
  • Slavuta Must be all planned. Increase price of cars, urbanize, 15 minutes cities. Be poor, eat bugs
  • Sid SB Not seen a Core without the performance pack yet. Prefer the more understated look of the Core vs the Circuit, but both are great fun to drive.
