I'm literally just cooking my own food at home which is healthier than restaurants. I've I've learned why I think that is too because I don't cook particularly healthy. Cooking is in the coronal.

They're interesting to see the different numbers and most people are going less. You're like sitting at home which not used to. I mean people are probably moving less because even like those little walks office to the bathroom coffee and stuff like that kind of is worth something so it depends on how sedentary being forcing food is different yet. Not Eating out is probably much better for most totally And Hanan I are forcing it like. Yeah we're not. She's not walking around or an office or whatever but like in the morning we take like a three mile walk on the beach and then in the afternoon I do cardio and Jim and so I think it's it's evening out losing weight in quarantine.

So this is Ryan Rask and last question everybody His father in law is looking for a Florida car to people in two golf bags. He would prefer manual. He wants an Aston but will those fit two golf bags. C. E. Six wagon is also strong contender. I mean on a second Aston's two golf bags answer some The DB nine's and I think the newer second Gen Vanquish Current Gen D. B. S. Will however they're not manual? You want a deep Own Nine to eleven DB S. I believe that will hold two golf bags. Trump great car so sexy very very cool car. I also believe that the newly no I am an manual to golf bags. Lot of corvette is a lot of corvette. You can buy zero. C Seven C seven corvettes leftovers for sure definitely manual gearboxes. All over the place big chunks able to carry people because the table. He's a golf bags. But why would he want a CSV waggin other than the fact that it's fast and cool and I think the people have a problem with this right basket with how they ask because it's like these two cars are awesome right but if you don't need to carry more people you shouldn't get that big car? You know what I mean. Keep it small. Get the smallest car that you need for your task. Shrew right because small is better. It's lighter it's more fun. It's more agile. Is You know I I think maybe not he I think. How much bigger is it? C. T. S. V. Wagon than a DS like don't feel small because you sit down and look over the the the hood you know what I mean.

"Months which was talking about Ford Versus Ferrari on the twenty hour war which were two of our a patron exclusive. Podcast PATRIARCH COMSTOCK SHIFT F. One found support the show and listen to our whole archive of Podcast check now This coming in from Michael a good book that sort of compliments the movie or movies. Hey guys big fan a show I. I'm another new fad from drive to survive last year. Who went from more or less no lodge to watching every practice session? Two Weeks Off Gossiping a great help and keeping me involved in up to speed on everything and I really enjoyed being a patron to so thank you. I wanted to write into guys to suggest you to book. Go to go like hell by go to hell go like hell by AJ Beim. This book covers the events in the movie. Along with much of the history and backstory leading up to them this being the Mon- nineteen sixty six and sort of Iran. There and the book has an equal focus on both the Ford and Ferrari aspects honestly the Ferai parts are generally more interesting if focus on his personal life as well as the deaths of his son. Dino and the long process of legitimizing his son with his mistress Piero g Mac They also go into detail on many of the FRY drivers on the criticisms of Enzo at the time in his management style. Many peoples belief that the high pressure environment led to a surplus of racing debts on the Ferrari team threat the fifties and sixties. Some of this was actually covered in the documentary. As well as I've interested to see how deep it goes found this one I was doing one of the nights nights kimball unlimited trials and figured it would be worth a read with the movie coming out. I would definitely recommend is to get more knowledge regarding the battle but also the history of Ferrari's race team and road car divisions as well as Ford's racing for gamma and the domestic issues that affected such as the race. Ralph Nader's book unsafe at any speed. Which nearly derailed the racing program for reasons which wasn't included in the film? Thanks again for the POD looking forward to another season. Keep up the great work so if anyone's interested without is go like hell. Aj Beim at Aj and be a I M E. Were checking out if you want to some further reading on Ford and Ferrari Arab on this one just got to point out the they actually interview. Ha Beim In the twenty four hour war anti original title for verse. Rory was go like hell. You're kidding yeah wow yeah. I wonder how much it was used. Then for the script or something must've been a resource Shirley at least sorry. Go ahead problem. Comes from Andrew in Calgary There's some good news for us. Canadian listeners F. One TV is now available in Canada. I'm watching testing right now. Particularly exciting to me is access to the race archive which currently goes back to the nineteen eighty-one season. Are there any particularly good in Torius races? That would be worth watching a particularly good seasons. I'm sure these properties are great to watch. Thanks for all the work you put into the podcast and listening since it was an alternative one. That's been great to continue to develop and grow rob's amazing edition. Thank you thank you sir I agree. It's IT'S FUNNY. We're still talking. Rob Addition is this your third season a half. Yeah yeah I'd probably rather. Yeah it's cool. I'm glad to see that the one that comes to mind right away since this person's in Canada Canada Tony Eleven. Of course he'll yeah the the ridiculous double red flagger and God. I think there's there's so many races from last year I'd watch again like Germany and Brazil. We talked about this. I think when we were In the off season break and looking for things to watch. Yeah we we did. I think you're right. Was it the last public one we did. I think Actually end of end of the season. We okay so we we put together this actually on f. One DOT COM SLASH BLOG. Slash offseason twenty nineteen We can actually like this In the show as well but we said from two thousand nineteen the best races. Were Bahrain. Australia. Great Britain Germany Hungary and Brazil. And I think we kind of brainstormed older races and came up with Belgium. Ninety eight area Brazil. Two Thousand Eight candidates twenty eleven Brazil. Twenty Sixteen And Azerbaijan twenty seventeen and two thousand eighteen. Yeah totally also just like try going back into the F. One TV archive. They don't have every race every season. I think they're slowly adding more and more but just like pick a random one that's old. Yeah it's it's fun to just see how different it is. I think I watched one from the eighties or something in half the field retired and I watched like the following race in the same exact thing happened like f. one is just different back then watched the two thousand seven season. If you WANNA watch a great season F one watched the two thousand seven season two thousand seven so Hamilton's first season. Yeah when he's cared for non to Alonzo Yeah Zoo. And there's a good case made that like McLaren would have had that in the bag that mercy that McLaren had the pace that air. And maybe the best car. But the problem of course. Is that the two drivers. Just fucking hated each other And it got way out of hand In terms of their rivalry and it escalates to an off the track drama as well. Which is that In his parting shot from leaving the team in a half. Fernando Alonso basically may be Kinda SORTA dimes team out to the FAA About some technical infractions and gets them excluded from the constructor's championship and a one. Hundred million euro find levied against the team Seven seven just great racing drama on the track and then just if you look at the politics around it at the time it's just great stuff then only five five races from the twenty seven. Such thousand seven season R. R. A. F. One TV archive bomber is the Brazil. At least yes I think generally what they do is they pick the best ones. And then they give you like a ten minute recap of the other ones. Oh you're right. Yeah don't that that's how they do it. They sort of have these little like I think they've pulled them from like a TV or something channel. Four it was like a little like a news. Wrap up show or something.

I mean that is what it is it was a Cunningham car and it was the first time corvettes ever went to Lama and they won their class. And it was a big deal but but the the Bits Arrhenius a wonderful story. Bits bits bits sitting. Yeah well however you pronounce his earning a major do it right either one. We answered both so so the Bit Sereni was designed by. Shot Bit Serena who is the chief race engineer. For Ferrari he was a racecar racecar savant. He was hired right out of technical school to work for Alfa Romeo and then furry poached him from Alpha when he left the formula. One team. Right well This was in nineteen late fifties. Okay so later. Yeah and so He designed the GTO and was like Kamajor Force. It Ferrari then there was a thing called the palace revolt where after Dino Died Enzo Son Laura his wife got very reinvolve almost rather than evolve was meddling in and and the guys in the factory were just they just said look at two. Enzo either if you you want her to come run it fine but keep her out while we're running and he fired. He chose. He chose her. It shows this isn't a very recent documentary I just saw like a reenactment of Ferrari is it. I don't think so. It's not but it might be.

So company wanted to build road cars and bitstream. You wanted to build race cars so he built this car. He really didn't really have that hatred of Ferrari the way Lamborghini he did right or if he didn't get we didn't hear the story about it is there. Is there a cool origin story for you so really. You're not so much I don't think so they just happen to be very pretty Each show cars. Were you know the East grief of the revolt Yeah there were all Chevrolet power. Yeah and he's looking cards.

"Lead the team. You got some experience doing that nice and for that role they found no no one more suited to the task then the corvette killer himself Carroll Shelby Yeah as author. Aj Beim States Bateson Book. Go like Hell Carroll Shelby had created a business model that depended on winning races. If the cars didn't win the cars would sell his company lived in died on the track. They brought along shelby primarily to get the advanced vehicle division started as he was preoccupied with his own lama. Gt Division entry sorry which we will cover in depth on our next episode once in England shelby found a small racecar engineering company operating out of Huntington England Oakland Lola International. Lt Accompany named after the hit nineteen fifty five song. Whatever Lola wants Lola gets she sounds scary. Eh Lola International was founded in nineteen fifty eight and unfortunately went out of business in two thousand twelve two thousand twelve they around for a while in two thousand twelve after failing to to secure proper funding from F one grants but at the time Lola was just starting to come into its own in fact compared to the conditions at lola-ford afford division in slow looked like Paradise Lola was famous for designing and producing hardy all aluminum body race cars they initially made various single ingles Cedar Front Engine Race Cars for Formula One formula two and formula three but when London entered their shop it wasn't the formula cars that caught his attention attention he was enamored by the Lola mark six a fiberglass bodied race car that still utilize the then new Ford to sixty. V8 which was capable of making about three hundred fifty pretty jacked hearst pairs while the Turk alone could eviscerate tires turning the best has done lot rubbers they could find into Smoke Aka. It had a lot of Torque only three Lola mark sixes were ever built of which Lan and shelby two of them and Jay. Leno owns the third my best friend Jay Leno Jay. No you're out there buddy now. You're listening in the Gabriel UH and then he's an early adopter cast. He loves donuts does He. I don't know Jesse and Matt and I went to his garage right and we walk in. I and dude was eating a steak for lunch like a steak a baked potato and some steamed brought I am. It's just like hell yeah. That's what you well anyway. The the mark six literally became the prototype for all. Gt Forties. If you look at the pictures the similarities of the two cars ours are pretty apparent lowland. Ford agreed upon a collaboration in the design of the GT forty and signed a two year contract together though it did not take much time time for Lois CEO Eric Broadley to clash with Fort. He recalled that Ford took a somewhat uptight approach to racing stating that those no deviation seen from the script well motoracing is about as far removed from that as you can get. I guess he saying that motorracing's Fulham Improv. Wow Yeah yeah yeah. I tell you what I do pretty well then if someone told me not to deviate from the script. I'd say you're right. Here's my Amazon log. In how would you buy yourself a clue. Get same-day delivery scripted sure somewhat for for the impo and then the director Sir. You're featured extract the the guy from Lola wanted to be able to move around on his feet and Ford was a sounds like Ford has a lot of opinions and not a lot of experience lot of structure going on Ford but following the script was all right for four especially for Carroll Shelby in fact he brought on his old friend and ex Aston Aston Martin team boss John Wire to the project and the two got cracking. The hardest part about the design of the car was the timeframe they had to do it. In after the failed deal with the team Ford's advanced vehicle department. We're given less than ten months to design a perfect lemond car basically from scratch the nineteen sixty four twenty four hours of the mall was only about two hundred and fifty days away and the publicity of the project had already shied a major spotlight light on them while the design of the car was still being created lun traveled throughout Europe purchasing the best state of the art components he could find the selection of these components components was crucial as the failure of even a single piece would lead to a DNS now. Hopefully there's some people who are already into the cars listening to this means does not finish yes sir and it would turn the entire project into a marketing disaster for for what I'm saying Noland at this is the stakes were high. The eyes of the world aren't shelby import. They had to succeed or they wouldn't be corvette. Let killers they'd be Ford. Killers himselves themselves initially a three it's model of the car in clay had been created back in. Ford Styling Studio in Dearborn Michigan Dearborn Michigan Great Place Designers painted blue and white the American racing colors and shipped the entire entire model to University of Maryland where he would undergo extensive wind tunnel testing kind of funny that they don't have their wind tunnel over there. It's just a funny sentence. Phantom using the data collected in the tunnel Lun projected the top speed would be near two hundred ten miles per hour faster than anything mm Ferrari could compete with. You can't whistle well. The style of the car represented a huge change change in motor racing. The size and shape alone made it extraordinarily unique to the race track. She's yeah along with its shockingly shockingly low stature every square inch of the body had been designed to pierce through the air like a missile wind tunnel testing was not the only only innovative technology used to design the g forty. Another groundbreaking tech was the computer wow the computer simulations were are used to design every portion of the suspension allowing the car to simulate traveling on different inclines and surfaces and speeds is a Sim. That's crazy. They built sent back in the sixties in the sixties. They also really low balled Ferrari Yeah you can have like four dollars to do. You're racing crap. What no Oh Pilla Sam. It was the most advanced method of suspension design done by any company in the entire world up to that point the obvious choice for the engine was a modified two hundred and fifty six cubic inch Fairlane v eight which made about three hundred fifty hearst purse for the race. This engine made the most sense as the Fairlane v eight was available in most of the Ford lineup and a win in the mall with the revolutionary. Gt Forty thirty would be great publicity and marketing for the engine. It was sort of a no brainer marketing wise. It's kind of a no brainer the engine and we're GonNa use think I got in eight years but the car had to be durable. The transmission was sourced from an Italian company called old co Lati- which sounds like a frozen dessert GSA does religious. Who can I get a pineapple. Colotti who lucious it was developed in the same in town as for the twenty four hour race basically amounted to a torture test of each individual component of the car and the transmission was obviously easily. No exception drivers would shift gears over nine thousand times throughout the race and had to decelerate safely from two hundred miles per hour to thirty five miles per hour in a matter of feet while parts had been sourced in engines had been modified edified the actual physical construction of the car did not start until mid. December seven months after the design had began these lugging waiting here doing other teams at the time had been experimenting with newer lightweight Alloy Loyd and other material composites in their frame construction but since the GT forty project was on a tight schedule that no choice but to stick with thick steals for the frame but the body was made of fiberglass like the corvette a full size mockup had been sent from the styling studio in Dearborn to accompany named Specialized Moldings Ltd who then shipped the fiberglass skin to the project in Slough by mid January the progress reports sports from London. Were not looking hopeful. He admitted that the car was well behind. Shandra contributed the delays to the human nature aspects of forming forming a new team. I E was just arguing new human nature and specs of forming a new team. Nobody likes me and nobody respects me and Linda because I sang stuff like the healing thanks of foaming a new team they had spent twelve hour day after twelve hour day together and then had been enforced. Give up most weekends and holidays just to make certain members at this point in January weren't even on speaking terms which is not a level of communication mutation you strive for in any engineering department. They could barely force each other to get along and they were running out of time. Lund Lund declared the bill time with denby forced to run in tandem now. Can you imagine like you're okay. Ford has made your company millions of dollars to build this grace car but you know one looks each other in the eye. Can you pass me mean at spanner. You've that sounds horrible..

There was a four twenty eight Cobra jet L COPA. That's the one I'm thinking of a kid, a believe it or not a pretty wealthy wealthy in Pittsburgh kid had one of those in high school, and I remember thinking this thing, it might as well been a precursor of Luke Skywalker, hovercraft or something. It was just unbelievable. He you know, the story is Ford was making nothing but sedans street going cars. And so in a nutshell if you have time why did he keep saying I'm the one asking about the cars I love cars? I can't talk to anybody cars, except you and Leno. So they had a, you know, American manufacturer safety commission or something. And they had a gentlemen's agreement with Ford and Chevy and GM. No racing. It's too dangerous in the early, mid sixties and all the guy sat on the board. And they said fine. Four just start making boxes, sedans or the road. No, no sports. Cars Chevy was making a corvette. And while they weren't allowed to race them. Privateers would buy them race racism Chevy would feed them all the good parts, the new sort of the underground railroad of hot rotting, even though they didn't officially back the team ones agreement. But there was an underground market for all Chevy was winning everything on weekends, and it was win on Sunday and sell on Monday. So they had the corvette they're out there whipping up on everybody. Ford had nothing at the time. And. And so it a certain point. Henry Ford, second said, screw this. If you guys gonna cheat then it's on. But they were years away from developing anything. Well, he would see see bring Daytona and LeMond he'd see the three one.
