The Phenomenal Car Collection of Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis doesn't require an introduction; he has more than 114 film credentials to his name. Mr. Willis, a name equated with action, is well-known for his role as John McClane in the Die Hard film series. In New Jersey, Bruce began his professional life as a bartender. Eventually transitioned from professional theater to television shows and movies after becoming rather well-known for them. Willis was formerly a great muscle automobile aficionado and gearhead who possessed a number of really rare cars. The actor was crazy about his muscle cars which included, the 1954 Chevrolet 3100, the 1957 Chevrolet Corvette, and the 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Willis has also owned the 1968 Dodge Charger "Bullitt," 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad, and 1968 Shelby GT 500. Similar vehicles include the 1988 Lincoln Town Car Limousine, the 1968 Pontiac Firebird 400, and the Bentley Continental GT Speed Le Mans Edition. However, several of those have been sold at auction as a result of his 2010 interview declaration that he would no longer drive muscle vehicles. For him, they had become a sort of obsession.

Bruce Willis was first spotted with this black beauty while shooting for his film “The Surrogates." He purchased his Cadillac Escalade in 2008 as he was gradually selling off all his vintage and muscle cars.
