Sources of income, salary
Although originally relying on a regular salary while starting his channel, DeMuro lives just from his various entertainment industry incomes now. He has been receiving a powerful stream of money from YouTube ads. But Doug is also active as a writer which further boosts his net worth. He published several books, most recently Bumper to Bumper in 2016.
He is so famous now, that people are lending him their exotic cars to review them. So if you are living near San Diego and have some special four-wheeled miracle, you can write him and maybe you will see it on his vlog. What he can not get from private enthusiast, DeMuro borrows from luxury car dealerships that are willing to do that in exchange for their name appearing on the video.
2005 Ford GT
In 2019, Doug’s dream came through and he bought himself a pre-owned 2005 Ford GT (and of course he filmed a video about it). It is dark blue with white stripes and it came in a great condition. Real american muscles. Those are becoming sought-after collectibles as the production was limited and many of them ended wrecked. Pieces in a great shape are selling for more than the original MSRP. But Doug didn’t buy it only as an investment. You can tell he is genuinely excited about the GT. This rare sports car and his dog Noodles both make it quite often into his Instagram posts.
