Character actor Luis Guzman has a long history of humble rides to accompany his under-the-radar Hollywood persona.

His first car was a Chevy Malibu station wagon, a rare GM vestige from the 70s.

"I bought it used," he said. "And the second day I had it, I loaned it to my best friend, and he totaled it for me."

What does he drive now?

"I drive a pick-up," he said. "I'm a country boy, man; I drive a pick up. A Sierra."

Guzman, who resides in Vermont, is known as a director's favorite and has a bit of a cult following among movie fans. Among his many movie credits: Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch Drunk Love and Traffic. He is also the voice of Ricardo Diaz in videogame Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

In winter, Guzman likes to put a snowplow on the front of his truck and fool around, though we're not entirely sure he's serious about what he does with it:

"I kind of do like sculptures in the snow with my snow plow," he said. "I do, like, big snow angels out in my field that you can see from planes."

Coming back to reality, Guzman explained the instinct behind his down-homes taste in vehicles.

"I don't believe in luxury vehicles," he said. "It's not for me. Not a regular Hollywood actor. Just a regular person with a real life who works in Hollywood and has a great time doing it."
