If everybody had the mindset about cars that comedian Jeff Dunham has, the world would be a better place. Well, actually the world would be a lot more polluted, but whatever, it’d be cooler. Dunham recently reached out to Jalopnik to show off his newest purchase.
He already had a 1970 Challenger RT, so when he caught a glimpse of the new Hellcat in the exact same color, he couldn’t resist. The fact that they’re a perfect match isn’t even the best part. The car he had before the Hellcat was a Prius.
That might be the greatest upgrade upgrade in auto history. Here’s what he had to say:
“It was a no-brainer… I have a 1970 Sublime (green) Dodge Challenger RT 4 speed 440 6-pack with hood blackout decal and black side stripes, and here comes Chrysler offering the Needs-no-introduction-baddass-Hellcat in Sublime metallic with a black aluminum hood… DUH… I dumped the f-ing blue Prius and got one.
“We added some side stripes to match, and here you go: Grandpa and grandson. Now with the Hellcat, the 4 hour drive from Los Angeles to Vegas has been cut down to 90 minutes. Not really…. Sort of. I may or may not be lying. And that’s me, photobombing in the middle.”
Down with the blue Prius! Dunham seems to be a pretty big fan of cars. The photo above is an “Achmedmobile” that was on its way to SEMA, and he’s also visited Jay Leno’s Garage for a tour. Videos of burnouts need to come next, Jeff.
