Shaq's garage is full of trikes, but the weirdest is this custom Polaris Slingshot. His four-time NBA champion customized and expanded the Slingshot, and he even added two additional seats to create his very own "Sling-Shaq."

However, even with this big modification, the Sling-Shaq certainly looks smaller with Shaq sitting behind the wheel. At just 180 horsepower, the Polaris Slingshot isn't as powerful as Shaq's other cars, but he's one of the stranger cars. RELATED: Should Shaq be jealous of The Rock's car collection?you decide

MJ settled on cheap cars like the aforementioned Corvette, but later took home an expensive European exotic. Of course, what's the point of a significant bank balance if you don't buy a Ferrari?

The Ford F-650 is perfect for big diesels. The truck he's huge like Shaq and very strong like a Lakers legend. Shaquille O'Neal also spent a lot of money customizing this truck.

What happened to this Sierra Denali in a custom job is something the best minds couldn't fathom. I chose a terrible way to do it.

This truck has some serious off-road suspension, but the wheels look off a sports car. This gold-painted GMC Sierra Denali looks more like a Jeep concept than a utilitarian, actual vehicle. RELATED: 10 Reasons We're Really Excited for the 2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali

Shaquille O'Neal has a huge collection of cars, but it's certainly not the most tasteful. The Chevrolet G1500 offers a lot of space and is perfect for a man of Shaq's height and build. Unfortunately, this customization makes his G1500 very uncomfortable on the eyes.

As always on Shaq's cars, the obligatory Superman emblem on the front fascia is tacky and bland. Plus, the van also has air suspension and will slam into the ground, leaving onlookers scratching their heads.
