10. Supercar Engine Builder:
Building engines is an art but imagine being able to build fast, powerful engines. This is surely a very cool job. Cars like the Mercedes AMG GT and Nissan GT-R have hand built engines. AMG cars also have a tag of whom the engine was built by and the signature of that person.
9. Vintage Car Restorer:
Vintage cars are beauties. But age takes a toll on them and people who are able to rebuild them to the exact original specs are obviously very talented people. If it weren't for these restorers, many cars would have been lost in time and the world would have not seen some of the cars at all!
8. Custom Car Builder:
If one thinks designing a car is great, re-designing is cool! A very creative mind and the willingness to try the untried is what custom car builders have. Designers like Chip Foose have created masterpieces beyond an average human's imagination.

Imagine all one has to do is drive around a super luxury car and get paid loads of cash! Being the chauffeur for the Royal family is very cool. The country relies on the Queen and the Queen relies on her Chauffeur.

Why not? Why not wear the skimpiest outfit available and pose next to beautiful vehicles with people ogling you like they have never seen curves? That's got to be one job that gets you noticed!

Estimated salary: $25 million per annum
