Since NFL players make the big bucks these days, they can afford to spend of their cash on extravagant automobiles and there might not be a more impressive vehicle then the one owned by former Buffalo Bills/Green Bay Packers linebacker Nick Barnett.

Barnett owns a custom camouflage Ford F-650 (which just checking at the sticker price is between $54,785-$65,710 without any sort of customization) that he affectionately calls “Big Black”.

Below is a photo of his ride via his Instagram account which is usually used for commercial towing or construction hauling:


As you might figure, Barnett’s massive ride costs him a pretty penny at the gas station and all you need to confirm that is the below photo which shows him filling up the truck with 121 gallons of gas:


Yep, your eyes aren’t fooling you on this one…that’s a $500.00 gas charge. It puts into perspective your pain at the pump, huh?
