Roll your eyes, but it was a nice car.
While the world may be abuzz about the speculated romantic liaison between NFL sensation Travis Kelce and pop icon Taylor Swift, it's the classic American muscle car they were spotted in that’s stealing some of the limelight. Kelce, a player whose name is synonymous with American football and Swift, the globally celebrated singer, seem to be driving up more than just romantic rumors.
The rumored confirmation of their relationship received a significant nudge when Swift made an appearance at a game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chicago Bears on September 24, 2023. While their possible romance has been the subject of immense speculation and countless fan memes, it is Kelce’s retro convertible that has caught considerable attention and inadvertently promoted an interest in classic cars.
The spotlight is on a meticulously restored 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible, owned by Kelce, flaunting a luxurious deep burgundy shade. The sighting of the pair leaving Arrowhead Stadium in this vintage beauty sent fans and car enthusiasts into a frenzy, making the vehicle an instant internet sensation. "That thing sounds so mean coming around the corner and it looks sweet," Travis once remarked about his classic automobile, reflecting his profound admiration for his vintage possession.
Swift, with her noted penchant for vintage vehicles and a song titled 'Getaway Car' to her name, fueled fans' excitement. The internet was flooded with footage of their evening drive, sparking discussions and even inspiring the creation of themed t-shirts, capturing the imagination of fans worldwide.
Kelce, known for his eclectic car collection, also owns premium models like a Range Rover, a Mercedes AMG G63, and an Aston Martin Vanquish. Observant eyes are now keenly watching out for any of these vehicles potentially being driven by Swift, adding a novel twist to their speculated romance.
