Comedian Kevin Hart reportedly spent about $500,000 on classic cars to thank his crew after he wrapped up his latest international tour.

“Just treated my guys to Old School cars,” Hart wrote in an Instagram post. “This tour has been amazing. I wouldn’t be where I am today without my team.”

In the same post, taken shortly after Hart he finished his Irresponsible Tour, Hart showed off the gorgeous muscle cars with the engines rumbling in the background. The cars, each given to a member of his team, from the 1960s and early ’70s, are a red Corvette, a Mustang, two GTOs, two Chevelles and a Camaro.

Oh, and a custom Volkswagen Beetle for someone named Joey.

The comedian said in the video that he didn’t buy a classic ride for himself.

“I love the fact that they’re gone; they’re blown away,” he said about the team members. “That’s all I needed. Nothing else.”

But that didn’t stop Hart and the new owners from starting a classic car club of their own — the Plastic Boyz Car Club.

“We are getting jackets and hats and gloves with no finger tips,” the comedian wrote in a different Instagram post. “Old man fun. We drink coffee and talk cars on Sundays.”

    • Cars, cars, cars, a joke is a joke, joke’s are funny when there is truth in them, so if by homophobia you mean normal truthisms of not wanting ones child to be homosexual, then yes. But, if you have real world proof of people saying "i hope my child is not heterosexual!" then i’d be wrong, but we both know, no parent says that, therefore, that would not be ‘funny’. AND…he bought one guy a VW Beetle, so therefore, he’s cool with gay people!

    • JD one thing I’ve learned to live by. Hate the sin, but love the sinnner. Is it morally correct to expect everyone to ostracize a person because of what their feelings beliefs or convictions are right or wrong. I commend him on his benevolence and classic cars for recognizing it without bias or prejudice.

    • Come on mate, he made those comments 10 years ago. And he’s since apologised for and retracted them.
      Is personal growth and improvement not allowed now?
      Are you still exactly the same person you were 10 years ago?
      It’s classic car news. Good on him for sharing his good fortune.

  1. You go Kevin!!! Many more blessings come to those who do great things for others. We came here with nothing and will leave with nothing but our reputation. Kevin if you read this stand your ground and don’t let others who have run astray mould you into what they believe. Be strong and stay strong.

  2. Who among us hasn’t made some off-color comments at least once in their lifetimes in the name of humor? Get a life people and respect what the man has done for those who have helped him achieve his success!
