Danny Trejo is known as a Robert Rodriguez movie fixture, an all-round tough guy. But one thing he’s not as well known for is his classic car passion.

Danny says about his beloved ’65 Riviera:

“The ’65 Buick Riviera Clamshell was only made for one year. They made it in 1965, and that was it. So it’s a classic car, really hard to find.”

Danny Trejo has had a prolific career in the entertainment industry, yet his road to success has been hard earned and anything but typical. From imprisonment to helping young people battle drug addiction, to acting and producing.
