Despite the fact that he spends his days sweating it out behind the wheel, Johnson's love of a fine set of wheels is apparently insatiable. "I recently picked up a 1949 Chevy Stepside," he says of this boxy, five-window number that looks it came off the set of 'American Graffiti.' "It sounds good and hauls ass – it's got a Corvette engine under the hood." Add in a few modern conveniences, like air conditioning and SiriusXM Radio, and what you've got is Johnson's new everyday ride. "It looks old, but it's very comfortable to drive around," he says.
