When the "HEMI Guy" Bails, You Know It's Bad

Yes, high gas prices suck--so bad that even the Dodge "HEMI Guy" is dumping his pickup in the name of charity.

Jon Reep's the "HEMI Guy"--the dude who leaned out of his truck in TV commercials from the Chrysler Group, uttering the redneck idiom/mantra of our times, "That thing got a HEMI?"

Like everyone else, Reep's probably tired of paying $100 a shot to fill up his truck, so he's listing it on eBay to cash in on the remaining portion of his allotted 15 minutes. At least the standup guy's doing the standup thing, and donating a portion of the proceeds to the American Diabetes Association.

The truck has 8,200 miles on it, and it's said to be in good condition. The 2006 Black Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie of course, has the HEMI, but it also has Sirius, navigation, a sliding rear window, and heated front seats.

The eBay auction winner also gets a bunch of signed merch and free tickets to a gig of Reep's somewhere in country, maybe even at the Comedy Store. Bid away--if you can afford it.

  1. According to, based on 45% highway driving, 55% city driving, 15,000 annual miles at $3.96 per gallon would cost about $5000 annually. that's enough to scare me away from this collectible
