"A new car. You driven and say the past six or eight months and adapted to that. Hot rod project phone, connective. Let's take that one to tell you. Well, I think I would probably build something with with, you know, some kind of contemporary turbocharged engine are just astounding in terms of performance and fuel economy. So. I mean come on excel of seeing these things like it's going to one point three liter puts out two hundred ninety horsepower, newly what? Super just basically forced induction kinda should've taken that off the table. No forced induction. No phone. All right. Not for seduction. No phone, but don't get backdate this, you're building, seventy eight Monte Carlo, Dr Who. Okay. Nice yet, see today, it's funny all wheel drive means. Good things. I remember like even as far back as two thousand nine C O, we'll try great moral crap to break. Right. There's probably still more crap to break. But, you know, people I think any drive is definitely, there's this kind of attitude right now where people are like, why can't possibly drive a car that doesn't have all wheel drive 'cause it rains, sometimes where I live, and it's like, how do you think your folks got around but. But on the other hand, you go to the drag strip any see somebody with a lawn launch car with zero wheelspin, like, okay. That doesn't sound like I was just in Mexico and race millin was down there with a new kind of buggy design that he that he is testing out that uses like a rally car gearbox in end like a little drive technology, and it was like, you know, he'd launched in these like sandy washes and just no big restrained. Nothing. Just threw gun pretty cool. Next step will be MagLev technology. A desert the week before with your pre runner, just lay down all the plates. They don't change the course. That's right. What would you guys let in a hot rod? I'm with you. I'm in the contemporary drive train no doubt about it. I agree with that. See, I I'm gonna I'm just gonna keep it can fall like that. I'm going to stay with my heated and cooled seat. I can't deny great. Those are business stuff like the late muddled. Right. Frame stuff. I'm so used to smelling Holly carburetors. Raj and smells like gas all the time you get me. Nice smell, I guess all the time. Castle time was okay. In the cost of fuel out here in southern California. I mean I wouldn't mind having a vehicle hot rod that gets the mid twenties and fuel mileage, that'd be great should have gone with a warranty. Yeah. But then you have to, you know, then you have to trust you know, whoever's at the dealer to work on it working on. It's not so bad that part's pretty fun. But true, yeah. Meanwhile, the maintenance partisan so bad to take it in and help. You can you can't do anything. We look my challenger, you can't even check the transmission fluid level. Well, I mean if you get like a supercar like McClair or something you can't even look at the engine. It's a you have to physically remove bolts to, to even see the, the engine bay. There's no there's no hatch for. It doesn't open probably Tampere Tampere bolts to read warranty. Alarm goes off in England. He opened up the melt your face off, British Sarpi. Be spending that kind of money, and I'm a clarinet you early gonna work on your own car. No. But you might want to look at the engine looks like me, I wouldn't want somebody else to work on it, and I'll do it. You wouldn't have time you'd be out buying watches or cruiser on your yet. How man cargoes are so into watches throwing people are always like, hey, look at my watch and like. The dime. I haven't owned a watch and like fifteen years, I feel really bad. I don't fit in tattoos. I don't have the square glasses. Not too late yet is, yeah, I never done. The watch thing you either. No, I don't think either. Can't I mean at work? I mean rings and watches enjoys. I, I can't really wear it. Not not supposed to not around what the watch. It's nothing. It's nothing extravagant. But it's cool. I see that your watch. Well, Alex, you can't where your nipple rings at work. I might lean across a power trae and, you know, get nailed. Yeah. Was that was a captain? Lou Al banjo from the wrestling. You're renting it through your face. There. We have. So what, what is next on what's next for you? I mean. Well, we're is see yourself in five years. But it's like thinking in the brain, right? Like gonna take over the world. I don't know. I don't know. The, the media landscape is very strange right now. So I can't even predict what my options are going to be, you know, I'd love. I'd love to do to television writing that's ever option for me. You know, I think that there are a lot of cool car shows that people are pitching and I mean, I don't mind doing the videos for admits. It's fun to be on video, but that's not necessarily my goal to be the front person bowed loves to, to write for a big show with a big vicious budget. I feel like I'm as solid ideas person. So, so doing something like that would be really fun. Certainly hope that five years from now sees me having finished my book for years. Previously. That is a that is being goal driven brand new OPEL brand new apple. Valium. Nice oboe with a nice new suspension and non howling rent. Hero, pitching idea for let's go into this together. We'll write a TV series to SEL b b evergreen every year. It'll be brand new, we do unsound cast retelling of the building of that year's Ridler award winner. Is it going to be like a dramatic reenactment? Oh, tremendously. So I mean, there's going to be I wanted to it's huge budget, just because affects budget is going to have to be -rageous this we so many sparks in this thing. So many slow motion shots people grabbing? No matter what like a full forty minutes of just slow motion. Sparks like you don't actually have to do anything else because you can't see anything else happening because Jess marks. Yeah. Even as the guys, installing the glass in the car. Sparks. Yeah. I don't even put together sparks. That's because he didn't take his watch off in this starter was still. Interior shop Spar. Yeah. Spray booth. Sparks just painted with sparks. Does lay down the clear all the other guys lay in the sparks. A man a plan mobile. It have have the sponsored by you know, whoever whatever furniture company has the most throw chairs Late a. a onset by Kenyan blocks white sparks Reuss. Reuss agnesi. They just don't go away. Well think about that. We've done everything now. Yeah. Good rents. Right. When does the money come Lee sponsor for this? We get it. We get updated pool noodle. Why don't we get the bigger one awesome? Puna it'll together thinking of sponsors, my friend Abby, and I were just talking about this, because, you know, people are on social media and, and folks are influencers and telling her that every once in awhile company will contact me and ask me, you know. Oh, do you want it? Partner up for narrowly like they're very nice people. Always like a fine company. But I'm like, nah, man. You know, like it's always like super fancy high end like car wax, or something like that. Like, have you seen my car like ain't nobody gonna believe I use your product, nor would it wants? Never talking like, well, who would you want to sponsor? You would be a good sponsor for, for your life, where people would be like, oh, yeah, I totally totally believe that, that's a legitimate partnership. So, so who would you guys have as your as your life sponsors, life sponsor? A life sponsor unin- it can be as ambitious as you want. But, like, for example, I was thinking, like, right now, the two things that I seem to go through the most our car covers, because we just keep getting new cars, and, and most get notebooks those little. And I was I did, I would be totally stoked if I just had a supply of notebooks. I'm not an ambitious person obviously at this point out either have to go with Nabisco for Orioles because I'm a single dad with a teenage kid or I will do any hard-drive company would do us really good. More laptops. And I'm thinking car stuff in this case scenario. I got two good hot run thing going on. I need a tire supplier. Yeah. So then you're not limited to what you went to do because you got pay for this. I'm going to be cool. Well there. So if you have to pay for those in their sponsor gotten obliterated, TIMMY, your car, I recommend once again, getting an GT because I recently got four tires for the petite and it was like one hundred thirty bucks. Thousand trip wear. Meantime, everything else I have just like two hundred fifty bucks a tire rated for sixty two mile an hour. But hey, they're cheap wrist. I was getting old ministered to watch burnout videos online. And I was just like, oh, this is stupid. That's expensive. Clean up after this. Imagine the smell like, oh man. Big pothole, and that guy's concrete. His neighbors are going to be mad. Yeah. So he's going to call the homeowners association. I sister still teases me 'cause when she was in college, I went to visit her, and I thought she was helping to help remove we had rental truck, it was a dodge and I did a burn out in front of our house, it Santa Cruz exit raid, right after that. So they have a huge pot will that they, they named after we. It's not a pothole you, you help to divert the you, you created new drainage water channel. I thought it was like a frog sanctuary. Ooh. Byrd bath. So the, the subtitle for your episode is going to be animal lover. That's totally accurate. Anybody who knows me knows that, you know, like if you follow any might social media feeds? It's nothing but cars dogs. Let's you had a, you have a lot of dogs under Instagram feed, I folks, the best, nobody's ever gonna get enough fight with you. 'cause you posted a dog. You're just gonna make everybody happy so that we. Well, we haven't we covered at covered all the important things we're gonna do this as typical podcast go. You know if you were a car. What kind of a car would you be? And why? No mechanistic question unless you thought that through. And you're obviously Lamborghini, America's I'm awesome. Wow. Good choice to that is, that is probably the most beautiful car in my opinion ever created. I would have to agree. There's not a bad line on ethics mazing. These looked at the door handles the door. Here's like so cool because. It's like these likes lots than than like the door handles also like a slap. Good. I was doing some work at a shot that day. And they were they were putting a stereo in one of those in the door was opened the door jams. And part of the day, I was just looking like what was in my surrounding area going? There's some thought that went into this car just act together. There's some really cool. Little detail stone. Little area looking at you on. Wow. Okay. Such a great looking shape, the shape of the cars, just whenever I was a kid, and I was doodling cars. It was always that was the style of car. Always tried to draw. Never could do it. Well, but that was the one I wouldn't mind I wouldn't turn away, if it show in my dry went have you ever ridden one, I've sat in one, I haven't written in one. I've ridden in a leber gain spot, same here. What if there's like a really crappy kit car out there? That's just like when, when did all, like, the, the Coon Tosh, we could see those for like the fear chassis, everything was slightly off. I wonder if you can even make them we are ugly. Now, the closest come to a what if it looked kinda like a cross, like, like Amira head a baby with a life Allonsius stratas. Yeah. Thank so basically. The Laura like a triumph triumph meets like Penn Tara. It's funny. The other day, she speaking of kit cars, I was driving around by the thing. There's a Scott pulls up in this Fierro with the test, Arosa body kit. And these kids, come bolting out of this Chinese restaurant than spiderlike. It's Ferrari, I didn't have the heart to tell them. I just kind of drove by chuckle. But they were checking this thing out. They could've st-. They swore. It was the real thing. It's like kids. It's fear. I just let them have fun. It was to meet. I can't say anything. Hey, man. If you like it, you like it joy was real, even if the car, right? Yeah. They liked it. And that's all it mattered. So, so what are you? I mean you probably talk about it all the time podcast. But what are your projects right now? What are you working on? Nothing prep. Brad every Brad. Man. You like what I'm doing. I kinda stopped because I got another project. I'm working outside to kind of put it on hold. But I'm building a stream Lanner. So oh, yeah. I'm building one of those crazy things. And, and then I get a forty may be pickup truck. It's in my garage, and I'm looking at another project get. And then and then I got a really cool mid seventies, duly with the little half shell in the wingham top. And I've done a bunch of suspension. We're going to put it to make it really low because I needed a really cool to vehicle for the stream liner Bonneville. So you know, you can't go out just something stock. You gotta be cool. Is it going to be a push truck as Lalor? Yes, Dreamliner going to be self self starting. No. It'll be it'll be it'll be pushed and it's a pretty crazy car. I'll of show you, I'll show you some stuff of what."
