Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Stephen king's favorite kind of car. That's why he chose it for the book. It's fifty one fury. So. Let's see. Here's a Bill on WGN. Hi, bill. Morning. Their morning. To that. I of right away would be the green hornet's car, which I thought was. So that's another one. That's that's that's another. That's another one that bears designed. Yeah. To this day. You can tell your that scene coming when it's coming out of the alley and you're just your team coming. The other won't be Starsky hutch. Yeah. That Vic mentioned that one a little bit earlier is his favourite. That's it's a they called it. The strike tomato. The one. Way to school with time. Because I could've swore was or and we argue it's a two door. Degree school with Dr. Real quick. I want to tell you you brought up speed racer. Yeah. I know you're a Big Joe Carey fans show, Jerry Brown. The episode where Oswald Boston sports memorabilia for the bar now. Resilient. I have actual helmets from speed racer. Actual helmets. Through. A cartoon character. Yeah. He goes. I happen to have a letter up authenticity. Yeah. Looney tunes. That's funny. That's funny. Thanks, buddy. Yeah. So this this Starsky and hutch car is so iconic. You know, my dad when I was a little kid. My dad had a red Torino. I wanna say it was the seventy one maybe. Maybe maybe a little bit older. But my dad didn't have the it didn't have the crazy. White Nike stripe on the side of it like like Starsky car did. But it was cool. It was a bad ass car. And this was you know, I was really really young. So it was my dad and so he used to drive like a lunatic. My dad. In the GRANDE Torino, the red grant arena that my dad had for many years. This was in the seventies. No seatbelts. None of that. No, baby seats. I was bouncing around in the back like a ping pong ball. So but the strike tomato was in one thousand nine hundred seventy five four grants arena. And. Was driven by the police do of Starsky and hutch. Are seventy show was given the less lesson affecting it less than affectionate nickname. The striped tomato by star. Paul Michael Glaser who played Starsky who load the car on first sight is major complaint undercover. Cops driving since ridiculously obvious car wasn't incredibly stupid idea. Despite this the show became a hit in large part due to the cool car and radically Glazer's contempt for it, which was so obvious that they had to write it into the show as a recurring character gag. Yeah. He hated the car. About this eight seven two area code. Remember Herbie the love bug. Of course, Herbie was in one thousand nine hundred sixty three Volkswagen beetle. From the nineteen sixty eight American comedy, the love bug, which may or may not be the first movie I ever saw in the theater, it's either that or the jungle book, they're very very, they're very close. But those were the maybe one of the first two movies. I saw in the theater they put a nine hundred sixty three beetle. Front and center is the main character the film. This was no ordinary punch buggy. It was essentially and VW named Herbie who sported red white and blue racing stripes. And would perhaps surprisingly be featured in a half dozen films of the decades following the release of the original. Including one with the low hand, the old fully loaded. Here's David on WGN.
