AC/DC singer shows off 1965 Lola on Cars That Rock preview

AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson shows off a 1965 Lola T-70 Mark I from his personal car collection in a preview of “Cars That Rock”, a new television series he is hosting that will begin airing in the UK this week.

Johnson’s Lola is one of only 15 ever built; he owns chassis No. 15.

Available on Quest, Freeview Channel 38 starting May 8, “Cars That Rock” follows Johnson as he pursues his passion of cars, looking into the history, meeting the fanatics and of racing in general.

Over six 60-minute episodes, Johnson looks at six of his favorite makes of car – three from the U.K. and three from other parts of Europe.

In 2009, Johnson released his autobiography, "Rockers And Rollers: A Full Throttle Memoir."

The book details Brian’s history - from teenage memories in the backs of beat-up coups to a side career as a racecar driver, Johnson shares his life story – a memoir told through his lifelong love affair with cars.

Johnson and the members of AC/DC are currently in a Vancouver recording studio working on a new album. Guitarist Malcolm Young is sitting out the sessions due to health issues, and there’s speculation that his nephew, Stevie, is helping out during his absence.
