Next in the lengthening line of comedian car enthusiasts is Jeff Dunham. A ventriloquist and Mopar fan normally spotted on video in the company of Achmed and Walter, for this video Dunham has put down the dummies and picked up a job: helping Chrysler and "a big shot with a t-shirt" put together a show car for SEMA.

Called Project Ultraviolet, it starts with a Dodge Challenger SRT8 purchased in downtown LA. The muscle car is being built to show off new technology and a brand new engine – declared "an amazing thing" in the video – that Chrysler will be unveiling in Las Vegas.

The first webisode detailing the genesis of the build is below. And since the crew is putting a new engine into Project Ultraviolet, we guess there's no need to cringe at Dunham's smoky, drift-happy mockery of the break-in period on that SRT8...

      Okay, come on. That is a stretch calling Jeff Dunham a comedian.

      who cares. he's a comedian. He has no say at all in what should be involved in creating a custom car. just some desperate publicity.

      Could this be a sneak peak of what the next gen SRT8's might be powered by?

      Jeff Dunham is a Mopar fan? Yep, that sounds about right.

      American car manufacturers have failed to adapt to market and thus will continue to fail (unless they keep getting funding stolen from the American people by Obamarama).
