When he was 15, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson bought his first car, a late '70s Ford Thunderbird, for $40 from a random stranger in Nashville, Tennessee.


The Rock owned it for less than 24 hours because he didn't have the key to the locked gas tank, so he abandoned the 'bird in a Burger King parking lot.


Today, he drives a Rolls-Royce Wraith (starts at a cool $320k), among other cars, and is famous for gifting friends new rides.
