10. Chevrolet C-10 

Guy Fieri's Vintage Chevrolet C-10 Pickup Truck

The 1969 Chevrolet C-10 in Guy Fieri’s car collection is one of the most well-known pickup trucks of its era.

It is not all show from outside either, this Chevy has a massive V8 engine full of torque, and can tow ample amount of load, even today. Check out the specs of the Chevrolet C-10 pickup truck below-

9. Chevrolet Impala

Guy Fieri's Chevrolet Impala

The 1996 Impala owned by Fieri is an iconic American car that has many accolades surrounding it. Although not as rare or as valuable as some other cars from Guy Fieri's collection, this one certainly holds its position as one of the most recognizable cars with the Chevy badge. Being that 1996 would be the last year of the Impala in its past configuration with the big-old V8, Fieri’s decision to keep one in his collection makes much more sense as the Impala wouldn’t be returning despite all its success all across the country.

8. Datsun 280Z 

Guy Fieri Datsun 280Z 

The Datsun 280Z is a distant predecessor of many modern Nissan cars, like the Nissan Z. The 280Z was a coupe that looked the part and acted the part as well, with a powerful inline-6 engine much like the ones you see in BMWs. It was rumored to be a competition for manufacturers like Buick and BMW. The GT trim of the Datsun 280Z was widely regarded as a success and has inspired many of Nissan’s later performance-spec offerings. And Guy Fiery's decision to keep one of the Datsun 280Z in his collection does make a lot of sense.

Guy Fieri also owns a 1968 Pontiac Firebird, which is a classic piece of art! In the late 1960s, GM began producing the Firebird as a high-performance alternative to the Camaro, and it would go down in history as one of the most powerful cars of its era. During its inception, the Pontiac Firebird did turn a lot of heads but was never majorly successful in the shadow of the Chevy Camaros and Chevelles. However this is also what makes the Pontiac Firebird stand out from the crowd of classic Mustangs, Challengers and Camaros!

6. Chevrolet Kodiak 

Guy Fieri's Chevrolet Kodiak Truck

Guy Fieri also owns a Chevrolet Kodiak C4500, a medium-duty pickup truck that is a much bigger alternative to the already large Sierra and Silverado. It was typically equipped to be a dump truck or a tow truck, but Fierri’s Kodiak is modified to be a performer of the highest degree.

This midsize coupe was one of a kind and quickly rose to become the face of British coupes for the world to see. The iconic styling, quick and preppy acceleration, easy and intuitive driving dynamics made it one of the most enjoyable car from Aston Martin's stable in it's era. Plus, the car was beautiful inside as well, it might not be as cool as today's tech-savvy interior setup, but well, it was one intuitive setup with every other control in the dashboard layout.
