Work hard, go fast 

Throughout December, we’re showcasing some of the sweetest cars that Turo owners have to offer with our “12 cars of Christmas” blog series. Start ticking cars off your must-drive bucket list, or get inspired to rent out your killer ride and share the love with other car aficionados.


After moving from Washington state to the Salt Lake City area in his tried-and-true minivan, Adam D. was ready for an upgrade. In the oil business, “I worked my butt off — 15 hour days at the refineries — and I was ready for an adult car,” he recalls.

Looking for something “cool, fast, and fun,” he was sold on the Challenger as soon as he put the pedal to the proverbial metal. “It’s unbelievable, the power you (literally) have under your foot. I bought it on the spot.”

“It just had so much power, it sold me,” he recalls. “The car spoke for itself. It’s the classic muscle car.” Equipped with a Hemi V8 5.7 engine and a sound system with 10-inch subwoofers, it has the comfort to be a great daily driver, an incredibly fast, incredibly slick daily driver.

“People will definitely look at you at stoplights,” he laughs.

Wanting to share that experience with others, as well as recoup some of the cost of ownership with gas prices slipping in SLC (resulting in less work for him), he decided to rent it out. “People really enjoy renting it,” he said. His last renter was an Olympic speed skater in town for the Speed Skating World Cup.

Next time you’re in SLC and looking for a fast, fun drive, try Adam’s Challenger and experience the gorgeous Utah landscape from the driver’s seat of an equally gorgeous all-American automobile.
