In his first-ever celebrity talk series, John Cena sits shotgun with his celebrity friends as they put the petal to the metal and hit the road in the guests’ favorite vehicles.
For the latest edition of What Drives You for Roku Originals, the professional wrestler-turned-actor takes a walk down memory lane with Travis Barker for a conversation about their favorites vehicles and the special meaning behind each of them.
All of his guests, including the Blink-182 drummer, also reminisce about a wide variety of topics from the deeply personal to laugh out loud funny, according to the Roku Newsroom.
On Wednesday, the host was spotted getting an education on what types of automobiles are in Barker’s collection that’s worth more than $1 million.
Barker wasted little time in leading Cena and the camera crew to one of his prized possessions: his 1987 Buick Grand National Experimental that was a surprise gift from wife Kourtney Kardashian.
