Danny “The Count” Koker from Counting Cars was born and raised in the Detroit area. His family comes from an automotive background. His love for cars started from the time he was a young boy. Most of his relatives worked for Ford. They helped him learn how to work on vehicles and motorcycles, both in terms of mechanics and restoration.

In the late 1980s, he moved to Las Vegas. This is where he opened his popular restoration shop called Count’s Customs. He has been on TV for many years in various reality TV shows. They include Pawn Stars and American Restoration. His own reality TV show is called Counting Cars and it is fairly new, with the first episode airing in August of 2012. It has been very successful and shows the process that The Count and his team go through in order to successfully restore various vehicles.

His own collection of vehicles is at 58, but he continues to add to them all the time. He also owns 78 motorcycles that he has customized over the years and loves so much that he won’t sell them. The vehicle he drives daily is a 1965 Cadillac Fleetwood. According to Danny, his most prized vehicle is the 1972 Ford Roaster which is the original Mattel Hot Wheels car.

In addition to restoring vehicles, he is also quite the businessman. He is part owner of a TV station in the Las Vegas area that runs B rate movies. He is also part owner of a restaurant and tattoo shop with rock and roll front man of Motley Crue, Vince Neil. Today, Danny “The Count” Koker is worth $10 million. He donates a great deal of money to various charities, especially those that promote finding good homes for abandoned pets.

So how much is $10 million dollars really?

The Count has a sincere love of cars that look great and are fast. He is often in a push for time and well known for showing up late. With $10 million he can buy 10 of the McLaren F1 models that retail for $1 million each! This is the fastest car out there with a top speed of 240 miles per hour. It gets great reviews for its appearance and speed. But, you can be sure though that Koker will have some ideas for upgrades, modifications, and personalizations to this already unique and rare machine!
