One of Goldberg’s favorite cars is the one he constantly shows off. The Plymouth Barracuda needs no introduction, The vehicle offers a wonderful blend of Mopar goodness. The Barracuda is powered by a massive 440CI Hemi V8 engine matched to a manual transmission. Goldberg has quite a bit of fun in this thing. And it’s easy to see why because its performance is astonishingly fast.
via: Hot RodWhen you take the Barracuda out on the road, you know you’re in for something special. Goldberg hasn’t done much to his to take away from the factory beauty of it. While many drivers are trying to do restomods on these things, Goldberg has kept his Barracuda quite original down to the paint scheme.
Another impressive piece of Mopar history is sitting in Goldberg’s garage. The 1968 Super Stock Dodge Dart is once again a replica car because Goldberg didn’t want the value to decrease every time he took it out on the road. You wouldn’t even be able to tell that it was a replica, and this is what Goldberg was looking for when he tapped designers to build him one.
Believe it or not, the Dart was one of the fastest cars of the muscle car era. Most people tend to forget that the Dart was a major player at one point in time. But the car was overshadowed by vehicles like the Chevelle, which buyers were snatching off of the dealership showrooms until the fuel crisis came around.
The Lawman Mustang is one of the most highly sought-after vehicles in the world and with good reason. But Goldberg didn’t buy this car to gloat about his success. He did so because this particular model was being shown to the troops around the world. Goldberg has always been big on interacting with the military, so the superstar was honored to take on the tradition of showing the car. But if you do drive the Lawman, you’re also in for something special.
This Boss 429 Mustang will light up the tires with the best of them, and the overall design makes it a highly appealing muscle car. The Mustang has evolved a lot over the years, but the Lawman remains one of the rarest versions of it.
Pontiac and GM have long had a relationship with the Ram Air company, so much so that many Pontiacs have adorned the Ram Air badging over the years. The Trans Am is one such car that has had more than one Ram-Air version. Although the Trans Am was exactly the same as the Camaro, the company still tried to distance the two vehicles from each other.
One way to do this was to give the Trans Am a Ram-Air version of the car. The Ram Air IV has a serious amount of power in addition to a monstrous off-the-line speed. The Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air IV is perhaps one of the most unique cars in Goldbergs collection. This is a car that you aren’t going to see every day. The fact that it’s a Trans Am makes it even rarer and highly sought-after.
Not every car in Goldberg’s collection is a muscle car. There are some times when the wrestler just wants to drive around town in peace. The 2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty is among one of the most ordinary vehicles that you can get. But Goldberg has a specific purpose for this truck, and that is to haul his collection around from car show to car show.
Getting your vehicles towed from state to state can be expensive, so Goldberg just went out and bought his own tow truck for the job. We’re not sure if Goldberg is going to do anything custom to this truck. The 2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty comes from the factory with a good deal of luxury features that make the car a breeze to drive when you are towing or driving for a long period of time. The fact this ride tows his other muscle cars makes it an honorary muscle car for our list.
With GM offering the Ram Air Trans Am, the company had to also do something special with its Camaro models. The 1968 Yenko Camaro was born. There are a few names that ring bells in the minds of automotive enthusiasts and the words Yenko is one of them. The 1968 Yenko Camaro is not only one of the fastest on the road, but it also happens to be one of the rarest forms of the Camaro. Goldberg doesn’t drive his often.
Instead, the 1968 Yenko Camaro is seen following the superstar around from car show to car show. You can expect to pay a pretty penny to insure one of these things. Goldberg loves cars and the 1968 Yenko Camaro is one of the pinnacles of his extensive car collection.
We’re starting to see a pattern here of Goldberg having interest in replica vehicles. But the 1965 Dodge Coronet Replica is far more than just a replica model. Instead, it’s a piece of automotive history. The Coronet was used by many major police agencies during this time period because it was fast and easy to maintain. Dodge used to be a major player in the police car business until Ford got a hold of it during the fuel crisis. Goldberg has all the bells and whistles on this Coronet Replica as well.
You’d really have trouble even telling this was a replica car. But that’s what Goldberg goes for because he doesn’t want the vehicles to lose value. The Dodge Coronet Replica is a beautiful piece of Mopar history that will have Goldberg enjoying himself for years to come.
There was indeed a Mercury truck produced for quite some time, but it was exclusive to Canada. This 1967 Mercury Pickup Truck actually comes from the family of Goldberg’s wife. The truck was a pretty basic no-frills design. Because the truck has such strong memories associated with it, Goldberg left everything alone other than an engine overhaul.
The Mercury truck is one of those pieces of automotive history you just don’t hear about too often. What made the truck cool is the fact that it was actually a Ford F-100,. For the most part, the truck is identical. You can find these trucks from time to time but you’ll have to venture to Canada to do it. The Mercury truck is probably one of the coolest in Goldberg’s car collection.
Goldberg has a number of interesting cars in his collection, but the 1969 Chevy Blazer Convertible is one of the most fun to drive. For a muscle car guy, you wouldn’t expect Goldberg to be driving a Blazer, but the superstar actually has one of the most original K5s that you’ll see on the road. The glossy black paint job and lifted suspension make the Blazer stand out from the crowd.
Goldberg also had a supercharger installed in his to give it that bit of power he likes in his vehicles. The K5 was a revolutionary sport utility vehicle and the values on these have continued to go up. Considering that Goldberg had a monster truck with his name on it for a long time, we’re not surprised that he opted for a K5 Blazer.
There are quite a few cars you just can’t forget, and the 1962 Thunderbird is one of them. Goldberg has one that looks ready to hit the track. The beautiful black paint job really gives the car an exceptional look, and the fact that he kept the wheels stock helps. The 1962 Ford Thunderbird has a lot going for it in terms of design and functionality.
The engine is not so big that you don’t want to drive it, but you still know that the power is there when you need it. The Thunderbird evolved a lot over the years, but this was the design that really took it to the next level. Goldberg didn’t do much to take the car away from its original glory, which is a good thing. Following the trend of the rest of his collection, Goldberg decided to keep the car as close to stock as he could.
1973 was an important year for domestic automakers as a fuel crisis was among us. This model year is the last year of the real V8s according to Goldberg, and the Super-Duty Trans Am has enough power to go around. The car has a pretty factory green paint job with all of the decals, but what makes this unassuming Trans Am unique is the fact that it can handle business on the track right from the factory.
Goldberg has done medial modifications to his such as adding a supercharger. But when it comes down to any exterior enhancements, Goldberg has kept things close to stock. The Super-Duper Trans Am is a one-of-a-kind muscle car.
The Pontiac GTO is a name that’s synonymous with performance. And that makes it no surprise that Goldberg had to get himself one. 1970 was a unique year for the car because it had most of the benefits of the Chevelle. Factor in the unique exterior look of the GTO and you had a muscle car that would turn heads in public and on the track. Goldberg has kept his pretty ordinary; you’ll see the occasional feature like aftermarket rims, but that’s about it.
The 1970 GTO is not your ordinary muscle car, and Goldberg knows how to handle it. Goldberg actually had his GTO featured on WWE television when he was challenging Triple H for the title. His GTO broke down on live television. He later blamed this on bad gas that he got for the vehicle.
Goldberg has a lot of unique cars in his collection, but perhaps the one that stands out the most is the Camaro Z28. The engine has been tuned up and supercharged to handle better than anything else in this range. Goldberg enjoys tinkering on his cars. The Camaro Z28 from this time period was just getting good. After all, this was the second generation of the Camaro, which also happens to be Goldberg’s favorite car.
Going inside of this Camaro you won’t be treated to anything terribly unique as Goldberg kept it all stock. Still, the 1978 Camaro Z28 is one of the original pony car. It’s interesting to see that Goldberg has a mixture of Mustangs and GM F-bodies in his collection.
The Silverado SS was a remarkable pickup truck introduced for the 2003 model year. This was the first performance truck that was offered by GM since the launch of the 454 SS. The truck had some unique quirks to it. The AWD performance coupled with the supercharger made it a hit. The Silverado SS carried on for sometime before it was discontinued. Goldberg owns one of the cleanest examples on the road.
via: GM AuthorityThe modern truck was both comfortable and fun to drive, something that Ford never considered with the single cab Lightning. The Silverado SS that’s owned by Goldberg is a very unique truck. It offers one of the last GM performance engines in a modern and appealing package.
The Impala SS needs no introduction. The car was an iconic part of the ’90s, offering some of the most breakthrough performances of that era. The model is the most highly sought-after version of this car because it has the floor shifter. For anyone who appreciates Impalas, the floor shifter is a big part of the revised interior. Then you have the supercharged V8 LT1 engine that Goldberg had upgraded.
While nothing is over the top with this car it still goes to show that a bond stock Impala is a highly coveted car. The 1995 Chevrolet Impala SS has become a piece of pop culture, and you see these cars pretty much anywhere where a car meet is happening. The notable performance and easy to repair parts make the Impala SS a great bargain when compared to other performance cars of the period.
Here is an addition to the other Cobra models Goldberg has in his collection. This name is familiar because the ’90s Cobra was a special edition car that came out after the 5.0 was discontinued. Goldberg has had his Cobra tuned and added special aftermarket wheels. The superstar actually bought this car at the height of his fame. This generation of the Mustang was panned for its looks.
But when you get behind the wheel of this Cobra, you can feel the difference. SVT went all out to make sure that this generation of the Cobra was a suitable car. Goldberg enjoys his model, which is the coupe and not the convertible version. The Ford Mustang Cobra will go down in history as one of the best pony cars.
Another unique performance car from the ’90s is the GMC Typhoon. This turbocharged sport utility vehicle was the first of its kind. This was long before TrailBlazer SS and the other unique SUV models that have hit the road. The Typhoon came in only two colors and featured a notable interior enhancement over the stock Jimmy. The performance was spectacular even by today’s standards, which is why these cars remain in high demand.
The GMC Typhoon has a unique exterior look to it that has remained timeless. The Typhoon that’s owned by Goldberg has a rather unique look to it. The wrestler added some touches, such as aftermarket wheels. The performance of the Typhoon will remain a major selling point for it. These rare turbopowered SUVs will continue to rise in value.
Yes, Goldberg does own a Pontiac Fiero. This was a car that was instrumental in helping GM to redefine the mid-engined vehicle market. The Fiero was a wonderfully fun car to drive, with the exception of its notorious engine fires. Goldberg hasn’t done anything to his factory red example. This Fiero is unique because it was the last year of the car and featured a clean redesign. The Fiero had a good deal of potential but the technology just wasn’t there to perfect the problems.
Still, you’ll see Goldberg take his out on the road from time to time. The Fiero really wasn’t a bad car once you got used to it. But the engine fire debacle shut the car out of the running for most consumers. It was a consequence of rushed engineering that hurt Pontiac to the bitter end. Nevertheless, Goldberg keeps one in his renowned car collection.
