Trey Parker: It's funny, because when we got these checks for $20,000 or whatever for the first run of "South Park," we were like, "We made it. We're done," because we had been living for several years on nothing. So I went out and bought a convertible Toyota Celica, and I was like, "I'm a bada-- motherf-----r."
Matt Stone: I bought a red 4Runner -- not new, but it was only two years old, and I'm like, "It's pretty new. I have a pretty new car." The car I had before that I sold for $400.
Bankrate: And then when you started getting really big contracts ...
Trey Parker: It seemed to come really slowly.
Matt Stone: I bought my mom and dad a car. I did that whole thing -- I showed up at the house.
Bankrate: What did you get them?
Matt Stone: A Subaru. My parents lived in Colorado, and they would use a Subaru.
