If I'm not mistaken, I am counting 3 Veyrons in Nelson's collection. Out of 200 ever made, that's 1.5% of the production in one person's hands... Wow.

I have to ask. What is Nelson's occupation?

Well, I looked up the tail number on that one aircraft (N526RR) and it belongs to AVIATION ONE OF FLORIDA INC. If this is Nelson's aircraft, then he is the owner of the company.

Wow, just amazing!!!! If I had an unlimited budget I would have just as many cars.

It really is nice to see that Nelson still is an enthusiast........ Many wealthy people have great car collections but the fact Nelson still takes the time to modify cars so that they are exactly what he wants shows that he truly has a passion for cars.

For someone to buy those cars and race/drive as they should be is awesome. He also has some nice dukes.
I wouldn't want his garage. I have enough trouble getting my clothes and shoes for each day- then choose a car from that collection- seriously???
why were you late, again for the 200th time?
umm i couldn't decide...i thought veyron matched my gettup but then there is the rolls royce... and the 599, 430 or the LP560...

These were my exact thoughts. Thanks for the pictures!

If I could only imagine what it would be like just to be in that garage, let alone be the owner.
