Many celebrities are more down-to-earth people than you would imagine from their media profiles. When it comes to buying a car, they may not necessarily do what everyone expects of them. That is, splurge on the most expensive vehicle available. Instead, they may consider engine configurations and performance, and go for classics like the Dodge, Ram, or Jeep that remain affordable and consistent high-drivers.
Celebrities and the Dodge Challenger
From all accounts, comedian JB Smoove is a dedicated Dodge fan and has several Dodge trims, including the 2008 Challenger SRT8. It was the vehicle he wanted to own the most when he was a child, and he finally purchased it from a Nebraska car dealer. It turned out to be a First Edition model. Out of the manufactured 6,400 cars, his car bears the number 3,829. He has modified the vehicle extensively since he acquired it.
