Ray Horton played in the NFL for 10 years, and won a Super Bowl with the Cowboys. Since then, he's won two more Super Bowl rings as an assistant coach for the Steelers. Ray also has a taste for nice cars, and he liked to drive a red 1999 Mercedes-Benz SL500 convertible. And whenever Ray went to the team's cafeteria, Steelers team cook Maurice "Mo" Matthews would ask him if he could drive it.
Ray always laughed and said quote, "You can't afford the gas in it." That might sound like an uncool response, but check out what happened next.
Ray took a job as defensive coordinator with the Arizona Cardinals, which is a big promotion from his Steelers job, and one step away from being a head coach.
And the last thing Ray did before leaving Pittsburgh was track down Mo. He asked Mo how much money he had in his pockets. Mo pulled out a $20 bill, and Ray said, quote "Sold!" Then he took the money . . . and handed over the keys to the Mercedes. Ray told him quote, "You always liked the car. You're a good dude. I know you'll take care of it."
Mo gave Ray a ride to the airport the next day in his new car, and Ray turned over the papers to the car. The car has 64,000 miles on it, and a Blue Book value of $17,735.
