JONESBORO--Just two years ago, Shelby Smith was tricking out trucks and motorcycles in his garage.  Flash forward two years and you'll find Shelby in his 5,000 square foot showroom surrounded by exotic cars, two of which together are worth more than $500,000.

Smith sells 90% his cars on the internet through Ebay and other web sites.  He stocks 10-15 cars and usually sells 8-10 every month.  Right now he has a Porsche Carerra GT, one of only 22 made with a "Guards Red" paint job.  It can be yours for the buy it now price of $358,980.  He also has a Lamborghini Murcielago, valued at $186,000.
