The iconic Vista Cruiser car from That 70s Show officially belongs to star Wilmer Valderrama.
The 40-year-old actor opened up about how he sought to actually buy the car following the end of the Fox series, which he starred as Fez on.
“It was towards the end of the show, we were in the last season of ‘70s Show and I went straight to the props department and I go, ‘Listen, how much for the Vista Cruiser?’” he remembered during his appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show. “He goes, ‘What? You don’t want that thing.’ I go, ‘Yes I do. I need the Vista Cruiser.’ They said 500 bucks, so I bought the Vista Cruiser for 500 bucks from our props department.”
Wilmer told Kelly that he has no regrets in buying it, even if it sits in a garage with a dead battery.
“Honestly, it’s the best thing I’ve ever acquired for my whole career,” he added. “When I look at that car, it reminds me of when I was 17, 18 years old, booking That ’70s Show and doing that opening sequence where we’re just driving.”
Wilmer continued, “Honestly, it’s gonna be in my family forever. I’m gonna put it in my will to make sure that my kids have the burden of keeping that car in the garage, you know?”
Wilmer and his fiancee, Amanda Pacheco, are expecting their first child together.
