Classic American cars get an outsized representation in Snoop’s collection, and large cars from the ’60s and ’70s make many appearances. One of them is a clean 1966 Pontiac Parisienne convertible. For any American readers who may be puzzled by this nameplate on anything but a boxy and underpowered ’80s malaise mobile, GM marketed the Pontiac Catalina as the Parisienne in Canada, per Hemmings, and only applied that name to a car for the U.S. market in 1983.
For Snoop’s northern import, he had Big Slice create an unmistakable L.A. Lakers theme, complete with the bright yellow color of the team and white accents to match. Of course, the car rides on some supersized rims and everything about it is custom inside and out. Most striking about the car is the mural on the trunk displaying Lakers players with Snoop, a well-known fan and huge supporter, in a team uniform and holding a trophy.
Snoop later gifted the car, according to Car and Driver, to the late Kobe Bryant as a retirement gift in 2016, who sadly passed just four years later.
