Of Course Kurt Cobain Drove a Dodge!

Kurt Cobain, the iconic frontman of Nirvana, had a well-documented fear of driving, preferring to avoid it whenever possible. Despite his dislike for driving, he owned several cars over the years, including a 1965 Dodge Dart, which is the only known surviving vehicle owned and driven by him. His driving style was cautious and slow, often frustrating his passengers with his adherence to safety measures such as driving below the speed limit. Cobain’s aversion to driving was so pronounced that his bandmates nicknamed him “grandma” behind the wheel. After his death in 1994, his Dodge Dart was sold to his sister, who maintained it for nearly three decades before selling it in 2022 for $375,000 at an auction. Despite rumors of owning other cars, the Dodge Dart remains the sole known vehicle associated with Cobain.
