No direction Sydney Sweeney away from her favorite hobby.
Sure, she’s charming Happiness as the crazed boy Cassie, but off camera, she’s turned mean and dirty, fixing her used 1969 Ford Bronco in front of an audience of nearly 1 million on TikTok.
“I really want a Bronco,” Sydney said in a recent interview with around the world. “But I wanted to build one so that when I drive it and people say ‘great car,’ I can be like ‘yes, thanks’ and know I made it.”
Since buying the car in February 2021, she’s done everything from dusting off the wires to rebuilding the rear axle — much to the delight of onlookers behind their phone screens.
Her restored Bronco isn’t the first old car she’s driven, making her latest project a complete moment for the actress.
After moving from Spokane to LA, Sydney drove her grandparents’ old Volvo to class as a teenager. At a high school rife with Range Rovers and BMWs, she feels “embarrassed” by the car, which she says was originally inhabited by squirrels and covered in oil stains.
