For some people, retirement is a chance to take things easy. For Kobe, however, retirement has let him indulge in a lot of cool stuff, from becoming an honorary Ghostbuster, to sitting down for dinner with Jackie Chan in Beijing.

Now, it looks like Kobe will spend that post-retirement life driving around in a sweet ride that was gifted by Snoop Dogg. On Twitter, Kobe shared a picture of Snoop Dogg presenting him with the new set of wheels. From the logo we can tell that it's a Pontiac, though we're not so sure about the model. Our best guess is that it's a Firebird (?).

Obviously, the car's been tricked out with a Lakers motif. There's a purple-and-gold color scheme. And both the front and back hoods are designed with legends of Lakers past. There's Chick Hearn, Magic Johnson, and, uh, Snoop on the front hood. Check it out:
