Ever since the financial crisis of 2008, middle-class Americans experienced a harder time affording certain products. Included on this list are the two most expensive items that the average American will purchase in their lives: homes and automobiles. The dream of owning a house with extra garage space for a special car is becoming more of a challenge for the majority of gearheads in this country. Hope is not lost however, if you are willing to pull a slick financial move like the owner of this F8 Green Dodge Demon.
While there are some negative comments about this owner on the Moparian Facebook page, like many of their fans we don’t see anything wrong with a Dodge Demon paired with a manufactured home. According to Zillow, the median price of homes sold in the United States was $237,000 through early 2019. On the contrary, in April of 2019 the average price of a single-wide manufactured home totaled $63,600, according to Homes Direct. This means that the owner of this SRT Demon could have purchased their home and the $84,995 Mopar for far less than the median price of a home.
We understand that a larger home would be a lot of people’s priority over a souped-up muscle car, but to each their own. The Challenger is as large as a living room on wheels anyway, and this one happens to be rather fast thanks to its supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 engine. A number of upgrades have been made compared to the V8 found in the lowly Hellcat models, including the addition of largest supercharger ever fit to a modern production car. The result is a total output of 840 horsepower and 770 pounds-feet in race-spec, making the Dodge Demon the most-powerful muscle car from the factory ever.
So don’t fret if you can’t seem to stretch your budget for the car of your dreams, simply evaluate your priorities and order up a manufactured home. That is about the most American thing you could do.
