John Cena’s Muscle Car Collection Is Something To Be Envied!
One of professional wrestling’s superstars, John Cena has also made the transition into being an actor, and has starred in a number of Hollywood action flicks.
Capitalizing on his success financially, he’s been able to build a very enviable collection of American Muscle Cars that ranges from a 1966 Dodge Hemi Charger to a one-off Corvette. His collection spans different car styles and eras.
Not one to simply keep his classic muscle cars in a garage and bring them out just on weekends, Cena’s work-a-day car is a 1971 AMC Hornet SC/360.
If you think that he’s simply a poser, then this list of his top 5 cars should put any doubts to rest…
1969 COPO Camaro
SuperCars.net has this to say about the GTO:
In 1969, Chevrolet offered a wide range of engines for both the Camaro and the mightiest of these was the aluminum block, 427 cubic inch V8 known as the ZL1. When equipped in the small Camaro, it could run circles around most of the Corvettes on the street.
The ZL1 was Central Office Production Order 9560 (COPO) that could be specially ordered for an additional $4,160 over the base price of the Camaro. This internal ‘fleet’ order helped overcome the restrictions GM placed on Chevrolet to only offer engines smaller than 400 cubic inches in the Camaro. Since COPO was really meant for special paint and options on commercial vehicles, the ZL1s were not exempt from warranties and they were 100% street legal.
The ZL1 came at the request of Fred Gibb who wanted a more powerful option for NHRA drag racing. A minimum of 50 cars had to be made to go racing and eventually only 69 were ordered. It was intended only for professional drag racers that could recoup the expensive list price.
