Joe Dirt just dumped 0,000 on a very clean car. Spade’ s character drove a phony Daytona beater in the 2001 comedy film “ Joe Dirt ” that was the complete opposite of this Copper Metallic masterpiece, which has just 6,435 miles on its original engine and may be the best example of its kind

Things aren't always what they seem on the big screen.

It's not your typical car chase movie, but just about every car enthusiast has seen Joe Dirt. The title character's love of classic Mopar muscle cars is an entertaining side-plot that mirrors actor David Spade's real-life love of cars.

Early on in the film, Joe Dirt is seen driving to his job in a clapped-out 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. Just 503 Daytonas were built for 1969, which makes it an unusual on-screen choice.

It's almost as unusual as Joe Dirt's decision to drive to the radio station where he works, despite the fact that we later find out that he actually lives there. Where did his go? We may never know.

2020 WW Ranch National Motocross 450 Class Race Report

  2020 WW Ranch National Motocross 450 Class Race Report Zach Osborne extends point lead with two moto wins in Florida.“It was a solid weekend going 1-1 for the overall,” Osborne said. “I was able to extend my cushion again in the points, so it was exactly what we needed for the stretch run of this championship. I’m looking forward to the last two rounds and finishing it off.

I couldnt find a Daytona that would accept paintjobs so i just used a base model 69 Charger. Im going to add more detais like rust to it later.

Like i said in the video i have always liked making movie/shows car clones using forza.

What we do know, thanks to Hot Cars, is the ultimate fate of that rusty Daytona. As it turns out, it's not actually all that rusty after all. Like most things in Hollywood, the Daytona is not what it seems.

The mismatched, rusty body panels and trashed interior? That's just some clever paintwork. Think of it as automotive makeup. Underneath, it's nearly perfect.

Believe it or not, the Joe Dirt Daytona was sold by the studio, in screen-used condition, for a measly $18,000 back in 2002. This was a few years before the musclecar boom pushes Daytona prices into the stratosphere.

At some point, the car was sold again, this time to a collector in the Netherlands. The car now resides in a private collection.

David Spade, as we mentioned before, is a big fan of Mopar muscle. Back in 2015, he paid nearly a million dollars for a perfectly restored, copper metallic '69 Daytona. This one's pretty special, too. It's one of just 70 Daytonas built with the legendary 426 Hemi.

Sometimes life imitates art. Joe Dirt finally got his Hemi after all.

2021 GasGas MC 250F Review First Ride .
Testing GasGas’ first-ever production 250 four-stroke motocross bike in the Austrian manufacturer’s lineup, the 2021 GasGas MC 250F retails for $8,499, which puts it at $900 less than the 2021 Husqvarna FC 250 and $800 under the 2021 KTM 250 SX-F. 2021 GasGas MC 250F EngineMy first impression is that the MC 250F engine is closer to the FC 250′s power but is smoother. There is no real spike in the power curve; it just steadily builds power and it does not have quite as much over-rev as the KTM. The engine has a nice light feeling, the throttle response is good, and the mapping seems to run clean.
