Our “Cars Owned By Athletes” series rolls along today with something for fans of the fight game: a custom 1990 Honda Prelude lowrider once owned by boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya is currently up for auction on eBay.
A statement from Kruse International says it was built just for The Golden Boy and that over $100,000 was spent on gold plating, paint, and full hydraulics. Suffice it to say it’s flashy as hell and probably isn’t the mid-life crisis car you want to bring home to the wifey.
