It’s impossible to steer Sydney SweeneyShe is away from her favourite hobby. 

Yes, she is glam. Euphoria as boy crazy Cassie, but off camera, she’s getting down and dirty, fixing up her used 1969 Ford Bronco in front of an audience of nearly 1 million on TikTok.  

“I wanted a Bronco so badly,” Sydney said in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan. “But I wanted to build one so that when I drove it and people said ‘cool car,’ I could be like ‘yeah, thanks’ and know I made it.”  

Since buying the car in Feb. 2021, she’s done everything from wire brushing rust off to rebuilding a back axel—much to the delight of those watching along behind their phone screens.

The restored Bronco was not her first car, so this is a big moment in the life of the actress. 

Sydney, a teenager who moved from Spokane in Washington to Los Angeles, drove the old Volvo her grandparents owned to make it to school. At a high school full of Range Rovers and BMWs, she felt “embarrassed” of the car she said was initially inhabited by squirrels and covered in oil stains.
