Check out Michael Vick talking about his new car site. No, really

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has quite a checkered reputation on and off the football field, and he's become as notable for his activities away from the NFL as he has his performances on the gridiron. One thing he hasn't been that well-known for, however, is his interest in automobiles. That may change, however, as he's just opened a website dedicated to motor vehicles,

"I love football, but many fans may not know that I am a big-time car enthusiast," Vick relates.

The website is billed as an interactive online showroom, where you can see other celebrities' cars. In addition, you can create an account, upload pictures of your own car, truck, SUV, motorcycle, ATV or boat, and interact with other enthusiasts. Every week, Vick says he'll pick his favorite vehicle uploaded to the website and feature it on the home page.
