"One and decided to debut their new 300 SLR in the 1955 world sportscar championship. The 300 SLR featured a body made of ultra lightweight magnesium alloy. It had inboard drum brakes and a large air brake behind the driver that could be raised to increase drag and thus down force. I think this Jaguar this was the first time the disc brakes had ever been used in competition. That's right, Joe. I think there's a Wheelhouse we talk about it, but that's pretty cool. As mentioned earlier, the cirque de Sartre was designed in the 20s. When cars could only reach speeds of 60 mph. But by 1955, the fastest cars were hitting speeds of over a 170. Oh my God. Yeah. And they just invented disc brakes. Yeah. Since it's opening, the circuit had been resurfaced and widened with two layout changes that made it a bit shorter. The pits and grandstands had been reconstructed, but there were no barriers between the pit lane and the racing line. With only a four foot bank between the track and spectators. There's also no designated deceleration lane for cars entering the pits. On top of that, the cars often had no seat belts since drivers believed it would be better to get thrown clear in a collision rather than being crushed in a burning car. It's so funny. Also back then they had the Le Mans start so like all the guys would line up out of their cars and then run to their car and start it and get out of there. So you don't want to waste all your time buckle it all kinds of safety devices. There's one guy that's just trying to tune the radio before he starts. Come on. Bluetooth connect. Where's my songs to listen to while vaping playlist? Where are my sunglasses? We'll get back to more past guests, but right now, a word from our sponsors. Big thanks to Valvoline for sponsoring this episode of past gas. Did you guys know that Valvoline was the first motor oil brand? Making it the original motor oil? Since its founding over a 150 years ago, Valvoline and its scientists have been innovating, creating reinventing formulas ever since. Those innovations include the first high mileage oil, the first racing oil and the first synthetic blend oil, we here at donut use Valvoline oil and all of our cars. I use it in my forerunner all the time. I really like Valvoline's extended protection full synthetic motor oil just because my 4Runner is kind of old. It needs extra protection, valve extended protection full synthetic is their newest formula and it offers ultimate protection designed to extend the life of your engine, you may not think you're a severe driver, but short trips towing extreme temperatures, turbocharged engines, heavy loads, all put a lot of extra pressure on your engine. Family and extended protection is ten times stronger against oil breakdown, meaning as oil ages, it gets thicker. This oil protects against that ten times better than industry standards. I use this oil in my engine. You should too. So if you're ready to protect your engine, go and get Valvoline oil, they're the best. Big thank you to the zebra for sponsoring this episode.

Before the race, Mercedes Benz driver Pierre levee voiced his concern that the pit stop and grandstand area was dangerously narrow. Tragically is concerns went unheard. Just 35 laps into the 1955 Le Mans, the worst crash in motor sports history. Occurred. As he reached the pit stop section next to the grandstand, Jaguar driver, Mike hawthorn pulled right onto the track in front of Austin healey driver, Lance macklin. Macklin swerved directly into the path of lavey, who was trying to pass both the Jaguar and Austin healey. Lavey rear ended macklin's Austin healey, which launched his Mercedes SLR into the air and into the stands. The Mercedes exploded instantly killing levee as well as 83 spectators and injuring nearly a 180 more. And though there is much debate over who is to blame for the disaster. The official inquiry determined that the layout of the track was ultimately responsible. The 30 year old track was simply not designed for cars as fast as those involved in the incident. Despite this ruling, Mercedes Benz called back the rest of their team after the accident and retired from motor racing until 1987, the accident was a monumental turning point for safety and motor sport, and many new rules and regulations were added in the aftermath. That's so many people. The period of 1966 to 1980 is likely a recognizable era to car nerds. This was the golden era of racing. The 15 years saw quite a bit of change on the circuit de la motte, particularly when European dominance turned in 1966 would Ford kicked the Italian Goliath out of the top spot with their unforgettable GT 40. Not only was this the year that an American company won the European endurance race, but Ford managed to secure the entire podium, meaning the 6 time reigning champion was shut out completely. Of course I'm talking about Ferrari. The victory was at least partially fueled by spite after Enzo Ferrari publicly humiliated Henry Ford the second by pulling out of a 1963 deal, although Hank the deuce was a piece of and he changed the terms at the last minute. And Enzo, obviously backed out a deal. You're allowed to back out of the deal. Yeah. When Ferrari pulled out of Le Mans completely in 1973, many believed it was due to Ford's dominance, which continued for four years after the 1966 defeat. If you want more details on this fuel, like we said, we did a four part series on it early on in the podcast. I remember it is pretty good, but it might not be. Now I listen to it again and it's really funny. It's missing one little key element though. Yeah, there's no wink wink nation in there. As the dynamics of the race evolve, the cars became faster and more powerful, often to the dismay of safety conscious officials. The Porsche 9 17, the car that Steve McQueen drove in Le Mans. The movie was born out of one of the regulations put in place to reduce speeds in the race. Starting in 1968, Porsche decided to design and build 25 different versions of a whole new car with a 4.5 liter capacity for the sport category. They had one goal in mind, to win their first overall victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970. It took only ten months to put together the Porsche 9 17, and by 1970, Porsche defeated 5 time winner Ford and won the legendary endurance race. Thanks to the Porsche 9 17, the company was able to win four times total throughout the 1970s. I love this car. This victory aligned with another rule change born from safety regulations up until 1970, Le Mans was known for the standing start. That's what we mentioned earlier. The drivers would line up on the left side of the track one behind the other, opposite their cars, and when the French flag was lowered, they would run sprint as fast as they could to their cars, start their engines and then go. You add like the element of how fast can you run up here? Yeah, which is not connected to your driving skill at all. At all. And you get in and you're just like winded. Well, this is a fun way of kicking off the race. It wasn't exactly the safest way to start 24 hours of driving. No. The rule change wasn't an overnight process, however. In 1968, Belgian Willie Maurice says forward GT 40s. Door flew open on the first Mulsanne straight as he tried to close it after standing start. Really crashed and suffered from severe head injuries that left him unconscious for two weeks. What? Oh my God. As a result of his injuries, the former Formula One driver was told he would never race again, and one year later in 1969, he died by suicide. No. No, man, that's really sad. During the 1969 start, three months before he passed, fellow Belgian Jackie X famously staged the one man protest on the standing start when he casually walked over to his car, took his time putting on his belt and began the race in last place. What makes that very cool is he won. Meanwhile, another driver, John Wolfe ran with the other drivers and flipped his car during the opening lap. And because he wasn't strapped in properly, he was killed. So it kind of proved his point. What's the point of it? If it doesn't, if he's going to come in first, this dude runs over to his car and dies, whatever. Yeah, in the next year, 1970, they changed the rule. But what a dumb idea? Well, I mean, it's a holdover from when they first started it. And ran over to your car and back then, I assume the cars didn't fire up immediately, like they did at this point. So right, yeah, it's like a holdover from when it was like a lot less serious. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. I was like, okay, we have to gamify this a little bit because nobody's going to want to watch a car drive for 20, I mean, yeah. It's like if they had the NASCAR drivers at the coliseum last weekend, ride BMX bikes down the stairs and have to do a trick before getting into their car. It's like depending on how they qualified, they get they have to start at a different neighborhood in Los Angeles. And they have to drive to the coliseum and then find parking. And then go and start. Oh man. That's kind of present in a lot of different sports, especially the older ones. Where it's just been going on for so long that no one ever questions it. And then something tragic happens, and it's like, oh, we have to revisit this dumb thing. No one gets killed in baseball, but there's a bunch of stuff left over from 1870 where they've never changed it. There's that rule in baseball. It's hardly ever has to be enforced, but if you get like three errors in a row, you have to smoke 8 cigarettes. Yeah. Yeah, that's like a holdover from the Hank Aaron days. And for sure. In the audience wags their finger at you at the same get it. You dropped it no, no. Smoke. You dropped it no, no. Rarely ever happens because guys are so good now. They really get her, but sometimes happened in 2016. Yeah. And it was actually seen as a reward. Back then, because it's like, oh, this guy's obviously off his game. Yeah. 8 cigarettes. Yeah, he's playing three games today. It'll make him better. He's playing three games today. He's not even drunk yet. How long to go back to the Dodger game this year? You know there's a lot of them. I know there's not just the Dodger game. There's a 162 Dodger games this year. That's why fantasy baseball is like, I just feel like my idea of hell. It's so fun. In the 1980s, perhaps inspired by the 1979 energy crisis, a new class called group C was introduced. Placing emphasis on fuel efficiency. This period marked a return to the races original purpose as a showcase of innovation and forward thinking design. Car companies began to lean away from the gas guzzling heavy duty race car bodies towards slimmer, more lightweight designs. This trend is highlighted by the fact that Porsche won 8 out of ten races through the 80s. And at one point, 6 in a row, one of the most interesting wins occurred in 1980, when a private builder named Jean rondeau won in a car, he crafted himself, called the rondo M three 7 9 B this baby was a prototype born from an inner LM with a Ford Cosworth DFV engine, and it was the first time that a driver won with a car that bore his name. The DFV engine was like killer in that era. Yeah. Progress from the 80s until the 2000s was achieved beyond the car builds. Mercedes Benz returned to the grid. The company's first run at Le Mans since the 1955 crash. In 1991, Mazda became the first Japanese manufacturer to win with their 7 8 7 B oh, I love that one. Yeah, one of the best sounding cars ever. However, one of the biggest moments in Le Mans record books occurred in 1988 when WM Peugeot set a speed record that many believe will stand the test of time. Gerard welter, Peugeot's head of design and team boss of WM was a man well versed in endurance circuits. From 1976 until 1989, the WM GTP and group C prototypes raced at Le Mans were built with the goal to hit the highest possible speed down the Mulsanne straight. Before the circuit was interrupted by chicanes. While many thought that the speed was second to durability at Le Mans, Walter disagreed. Before the 1988 race, welter announced project 400 and claimed that his WM Peugeot P 88 would be the first car to hit 400 kilometers an hour at Le Mans. To be clear, he didn't care about winning the race. He just wanted to use the prestige of the event to draw attention to his car. Driven by a turbocharged Peugeot engine, the P 88 certainly had the power to reach 400 km/h. But his cars had an unhappy tendency to break down under pressure. An erase known for durability, the WM Peugeot P 88 reached a whopping 407 kilometers an hour or 253 mph. Down the Mulsanne straight. Just before issues with the car's turbocharger, cooling and electrical killed the car, just 59 miles into the more than three thousand mile race. But hey, welter got exactly what he wanted. His P 88 became the first car to break the 400 kilometer barrier at Le Mans. And in 1990, when the chicanes were added to slow speeds on the strait, this record was forever cemented in Le Mans history. You don't really need your turbocharger cooling system and electrical system anyways. I feel like he could have finished it if you wanted to. Dude, this thing just looks fast. Well, wow, that thing is sick. Do you think sick? Oh my God. Oh my God. I wish you guys could see this right now. I'm looking at it. Podcast viewers, this car is sad. It looks like a plane without wings and it looks like what's that really fast bird that dives a peregrine falcon? Yeah. Yeah. Oh my God, you guys, Google is bird. I think every week we should have a segment called Google a bird. We all Google a bird together. Look at it. Yeah, I got this week's one. Secretary bird, Google that bird. It's time for Google a bird. We do it right in the middle of the story. We don't wait till the end. Dude, this secretary bird looks like a secretary. With secretary pants and yeah, he's got secretary pants, got secretary hair. One of the top images is like to an article titled secretary bird world's sexiest bird. All right. Who wrote this? Secretary bird world sexiest bird from Africa is killer, but not just by its looks. What? What the hell is going on? All right, back to cars. Le Mans lost a bit of popularity in the 1990s with a number of auto manufacturers withdrawing. Most likely this was due to high production costs, but we'd like to believe it's because so many GT one and LMP cars kept back flipping. You heard that right, if you watch the 1999 Le Mans, you definitely remember Mercedes driver Peter dumb bricks insane crash on the way to Indianapolis corner where his CLR took flight flipped over in the air multiple times and landed in the Woods. The weirdest part, it happened to his teammate Mark Weber at the same spot during qualifying. This is like the most insane. You've definitely seen this GIF. Yeah. It's so crazy. These weren't the first cars to fully back flip at Le Mans. The year before at petit Le Mans, the Porsche 9 11 GT one crested a hill became airborne and backflipped before it landed on its rear. So how could this happen? Well, it has to do with the negative pitch angle of the top level sports racing cars of the era, in order to generate enough down force and thus increase cornering speeds, the front of the car is set to sit lower than the rear. The issue is that when a car like the 9 11 GT one, or the CLR, cresta hill, the pitch angle switches to be positive, creating a lifting force underneath the car in other words, once the front comes up and reached 2.4°, the down force of the rear was gone, a bunch of air went under there and basically it's like an airplane wing. Flip that boy around. Flip that boy around. How crazy would it be to back flip a car like that? What does that feel? Dude, you know like when you go over a hill and it belly feels weird. Tickle? Yeah. I bet it's like that to the extreme. Oh yeah, it's like the same feeling when you see a secretary bird. Yeah. What? What?

"Some solid competitors that year, most fans were excited to see who would win between Ferrari, Jaguar and Mercedes Benz. All three automakers had won the race previously with Ferrari as the 54 champ and had arrived with new and improved cars. The Ferraris were especially fast, but somewhat flimsy and prone to mechanical failure. Jaguar concentrated their racing on Le Mans and their Jaguar D type boasted a straight 6 XK engine and state of the art disc brakes. Mercedes Benz were riding high from their successes in Formula One and decided to debut their new 300 SLR in the 1955 world sportscar championship. The 300 SLR featured a body made of ultra lightweight magnesium alloy. It had inboard drum brakes and a large air brake behind the driver that could be raised to increase drag and thus down force.

"An eighty one toyota celica with the twenty two our engine. The car starts great runs. Great for one minute and then there's no high idle it suddenly goes down to about two hundred. Rpm it'll stall if i don't keep my foot on the gas once it warms up. It's perfect now. I don't know if this is a factor. But i can cure it but putting the air conditioner on which pumps it up. Europeans about two hundred higher doesn't stall stall when you first started. It does fast idle for who does not fast at all it all right. Well let let let. Rogers say. I listened to him if you listen to him when he's when they stopped the first time you don't have to say let rogers say again. I listen to all first. Said i think you're knucklehead. Roger what does it do dot perfectly. It runs perfectly for one minute And then it just goes down to about two hundred one hundred really rough okay and then you turn the air conditioner on and that fixes it. If you would turn the air conditioner off yeah it'll go back down to two hundred once it's warmed up completely fine. What is completely warmed up. It's okay okay. Well there are two possibilities. There's only one well if you're stupid has only if you combine the two the the obvious possibility. The obvious thing that my brothers thinking of is is that it's coming off choke too fast and maybe the fast idle is an adjusted correctly. So that sean choking at all maybe well it must be choking because it starts at runs perfectly and then as a choke begins to open the bottom falls also speaks possible that the fast idle screw is not turned in far enough however i suspected something different because of my vast knowledge of toyota's or let me tell you something about the eighty-one yes card. All you can can adjust anything. Yeah and you got a big enough screwdriver. World you cannot adjust the mixture easily. But i'm gonna just the idol spew gonna just the curb idle spe- you can adjust the which is the idle speed that The speed at idols at when the engine is fully warm. You can adjust also boost idle speed. Which is the speed at attains. When you've turned on the air conditioner and you can also just a cold idle speed. Which is the screw that that hits the fast idle cam. She can determine how fast it runs when the choke is fully closed partially closed and less closed more nationally partially partially. So that that those adjustments you can do. You can also just a mixture which is not necessary in this case. But i was gonna say what i think is wrong with it. Is something called the A diaphragm accelerator pump. Diaphragm may have a small hole in it and what happens when it has a small hole in it. It allows gasoline when the engine is in the warm up phase to get sucked into one of the legs of the manifold and it will cause the engine to run very rough and very slow and then when the engine warms up that vacuum shut off diaphragm. And even though it's leaking it is it is not contaminating. The the the mixture with too much gas on that in fact number one cylinder. Did this happen all of a sudden. 'course it one day and the next day it wasn't i don't recall it being a sort of a slow process case. It's unlikely that a screw is unadjusted. Could've fallen out screws do followed on might have been stolen in brooklyn. You know anything. There was a rash of fast idle scoop deficit brooklyn but in any event i suspected. Is this diaphragms. You can have your mechanic if he can find the diaphragm now. Would that be inside the carburetor. No it's outside the carburetor. There are three little screws that hold on vacuum os and it's on the front of the carburetor he can pinch off or she your mechanic and pinch off the holes when the engine is cold and see if it doesn't correct the problem if it does then that's and you need a new diaphragm but you'll have to leave the car overnight. I love it. Yes i got you. You got it guys. Thanks so much good luck. That'll do it next time by one. Eight eight eight car talk or one eight two seven eight two five five low your car. Talk guys down in miami. We listen to you on wwl. Rn and i have kind of a unique one for you. Okay my husband. And i have a nineteen sixty austin healey bug spray and it needs to be put away for some long term storage and i wanted to get some tips on how to accomplish. All of this long is long about three years three years ago. He took a job in the persian gulf. Change duty military exactly. Yeah well there are two schools of thought here. Brothers and the rest of the civilized world. Now wait a minute. What do it's through your theory on. This is pock pox combat by a new battery. Put it in dry. Started up you going susan that you couldn't take the car okay. We're going to new orleans and the thing is we have three other cars so something's gotta give curse delving into susan's personal habits damn on this technical question should have a purely objective answer known if they realize when you don't have a good technical answer than you've got to fake around you change. The question always changed the question. You changed from ronald reagan. You kidding you why invented that was true. You leave store for three years Three that's a long time. You know i. I have recently developed a new theory about this. And and the genesis of this new theory was that what they do with. Boats both studies to be yes. In fact i happen to know the inventor of the device that makes that possible great mid coal. He's also magician. What did he do now. They shrink wrap bolts right. Exactly drink wrap them just like if you go into the supermarket and you buy shrink wrapped piece. You can shrink wrap entire yacht. We have the pit boats this winter. Well they they used to They they used to have The older version. This was caused malene. That's right you know when you get those gps when you were in high school. The army surplus some question about this. Actually this is an interesting idea because what they do actually with the bolts is. They covered the entire boat. Get this with gigantic piece of plastic and then there is a heat wand which us at the end to sort of laughing but this is serious. This is my knowledge. I don't know that anyone has ever done this with a car. Interesting idea what what's curious about. It is the thing you trying to do you store the car. The basic issue is keep moisture out. So you're gonna make very sure that you don't seal in all the moisture that's why you must vacuum the vacuum pack your car. Yeah and this is what they do at the boches not good enough. Pack right ziplock baggie. No if you could you could you could take the whole car rapid plastic and then hook up your vacuum cleaner so it sucking air from underneath the bag and when it when it looks like it's all suck down around the car shrinked right honey. Shrink the kids. I shrunk the car then you seal it up and that would do it fluid now you want the theory of the rest of the world susan. That's my.

"This is robert ross. With the matter. Welcome to another episode in my guest today. Is jacob grayson. vp motoring with bonhams bombs. Tenth anniversary sale is happening in scottsdale arizona on january twenty. First two thousand and twenty one. And we're here to talk about some of the great cars that are going to be going across the ramp jacob. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much robert. Not only is this the tenth anniversary of omsk annual scottsdale auctions. But it's obviously going to be tackled in a little different way since so much has happened over the course of the past year jacob but i guess i to set the stage for our audience since they are car enthusiasts. I'm certain that they know that bonham's plays a prominent role on the world auction stage. You've got auctions everywhere from goodwood to geneva from. Mata monterey certainly. That's the highlight of august. Get do private sales. I remember a great sale. At the inaugural rishard meal concord and shanti france. And you had some incredible cars there. One of my favorites a maserati boomerang when across the stage. I've got a lot of highlights bookmarks and my personal catalog collection that remained near and dear. I believe that where we dressed up in full on tuxedos indeed the auctioneer and everybody was senate tuxedo with at the gala dinner that night. That was quite a time. Of course now. I imagine a lot of the people attending this auction are going to be in their pajamas. Or maybe they're veterans slippers because they can be doing it from the comfort of their own home. I know over the course of the last year. I participated in some bonham's auctions art auctions and of course those have all been online. But what makes them interesting. And i guess what's going to happen at your auction please. Fill in the blanks. Is that you actually have a live auction here at the resort and spa with the cars on view. But it's actually going to be an online venue. Is that how it works. That is very much how it works. Yes we have viewing onside at the western kill and in scottsdale with all the right social distancing measures in place. Of course we feel it's important to offer potential buyers and bidders a chance to really see the cars and for test drive things like that. An old car can hide a lot of grim. Things is really important that condition and everything is up to par. With what the buyer will he or she expects. So we have feeling and we're doing that but that's not be because we'll be further apart and everything. We have to keep it safe. We're doing of course. Spitting will be online also via telephone and absentee bidding is also possible. You will basically on the day of the auction just like if you were walking into our tent and monterey or in monaco or goodwood as you talked about we do auctions all over the world and basically if you will walk into the ten you will open to your computer and you'll lock in and you'll see the oxygen near and we'll sell every car lot by lot with video for every law. We mailed out a cadillac to our clients who can follow along in that way. I guess a lot of practice auction goers understand that really sometimes the stealthy est and most successful way to place bids as over the telephone even if you happen to be in the room. It's nice to know that some of the standard mechanisms of participation will remain and really the only differences. You can be drinking your own martiniere lounge chair while you're actually buying that car. Let's talk about the upcoming auction at some of the cars that are in there at just because by the way these cars are going to go across the ramp. The virtual ramp on january. Twenty first doesn't mean that what we say about them isn't relevant into the future. Because we're gonna talk about some what i'd like to say eternally shining stars in the collector car orbit. I'm looking through your catalog here. You get some crates stuff. Jacob and i think if i had to put a title on this catalogue it would be festival of the fifties because some of the most interesting cars are precisely from that decade. He had some real oddballs in here to. Maybe we should talk about a few of those before we get to the superstars or your auction. Suddenly you've got everything from an austin healey to a hunch jaguars which are of course perennial favorites. But you've also got an elephant you've got fifty four. Curtis talk about a few of these little oddities. If you can starring where you left off the curtis is really a lovely car. I'm speaking with a client about earlier today. Actually who's interested in asked me to go for garappolo. Curtis was a southern california manufacturer of special s. You called them and they made a great chassis. Then you fit different types of coach coachwork on at it has an american. Be eight engine. They are eligible for many great events. Such s the cover state one thousand or the colorado grand. Actually some of them even randomly lomilia back in the day for me. Personally the fifties is actually one of the greatest eras of course. It's right before race. Cars became full on race. Cars and a road car was something else. These cars will basically race cars that you could raise new. Could also drive him on the road. It's sort that balance before the early sixties when the car is really were to harry to drive on the road they were only made for the track or vice versa. Somebody can acquire a very special and exquisite little body on this car but really acquire a real fire-breathing race car from the fifties estimate. Probably in the mid one hundred's right. that's right. yeah one thirty one. Sixty s curtis. it really ticks. The boxes you know it's eligible. It's a fun car to drive a powerful v eight out front edge. Great looking very sorta sparse. There's not a lot of creature comforts but that not the idea. It's really to go fast eddie. Shelby go broder understands what creature comforts or lack thereof is all about the currencies and lacking any more than that he got a porsche speedster in there to a beautiful little fifty eight red speedster. That looks like quite a car when a car like a major manufacturer product like porsche. Mercedes' jaguar. you want everything to be right. You want it to be exactly as it was when it left the going. Back in the curtis. Those cars got different types of engines and things on a car speeds. You want everything to be original. The beautiful each hall has the original bonnie number stamped in the doors in the front and the rear hood or bonnet an engine. Let you tells you that. The body panels original also. The engine is matching numbers so as to transmission. All that stuff you want to be right. We have a copy of the original bill sheet that confirms all of that so the car addicts comes in clean and it looks like it's got some pretty special stuff on too. I see some chrome rudge's on there. That are just gorgeous. Color is red from you with the tan leather interior. Everything on that car is as it was when it left sufa now since nineteen fifty eight and also which is quite important. It's a t two which is sort of the fully evolved. Fifty eight is the last year the speedster. The original three fifty six speedster. They started they came out in the fifty four fifty four. Yeah we're the fifteen hundred gin. And then they got upgraded to sixteen hundred and the upgraded the steering box the upgraded the transmission and other sort of cosmetic details on the t to and it makes it quite a bit more desirable than a t. One again they're just such iconic cars that are usable for any events this cars restored to the nth degree. Several hundred thousand dollars has been spent on the restoration and it was actually a very good start with like we talked about. It has to be resolved bodywork and all that but it's done really to the absolute porsche concord judging standards and they remain icons. I think a lot of times. What makes a corner. Valuable is three to four elements aesthetics engineering history and some romance aesthetics. Speedster is beautiful car and many people's opinion engineering. I mean it's a poor shirts well-built the on s. I would say they have a reputation of being maybe a little bit of a volkswagen but the nine eleven was a little more sophisticated but it still well engineered car and history. I mean they want raises back in those days. A lot of sports car drivers and racing driver started out in a car like a porsche and again the romance so they were the least expensive cars in the three fifty six model up when new these were.

It all goes back to that. I seventy two seven s. I went to the twenty four hours of la. I always been a car person. But i'd had a lot of british stuff and abortion really never seemed at least for a twenty something like it was anyway going to reality but not eighteen went backpacking in europe and we went to the twenty four hours a month and it was during the glory years the night sixty two. The rothmans liveried cars. That looked so good. Oh they look tell. You was really easy to see why tobacco advertising motor sports. Why they banned it. Because i didn't smoke but seeing those guards. I wanted to smoke and had french cigarettes and so or i may well have taken it up. Do totally effective on me. But after that i just couldn't get porsches off my mind wanted one in the worst way i had a sixty five austin healey free thousand. It's a nice car. But i was going to school. The university of colorado and it was pretty daft card own in boulder colorado by wound up selling it to an abnormal psych professor. Perfect tweet cap. Tweed jacket and everything else the kappa alpha theta who live next door to me restore nearly happy to see the cargo. 'cause i was running like glass pack and nothing else. I made money on the car and saw a white nine eleven with a for sale. Sign on in town and sixty five hundred dollars for it. I bought it for six and sommese. It was like a complete stripper. Acid had no options whatsoever. That's exactly what you want. No sunroof nowhere. Though sports seats leather at gas heater in that was really bad it. I've wonder where cars today. I've never run across it again and i'm pretty certain that i've ever sat in that car. I would know that car will. I'm sure somebody is enjoying it somewhere unless of course it made its way to the glue factory in the sky. I hope not because it costs me literally. Every time that i made on every summer job that i had to keep the car on the road. That is the negation clearly. The dedication paid off. Because you're now is dedicated to the mark. Is anybody on the planet and really kind of keeping the big flame of the club. Live through this magazine. The what's the circulation of the magazine. Rob does everybody. Who joins the club get the book. Everybody who joins the club gets the book circulation as well over one hundred thousand but the pass along rate which we've never actually calculated is gotta be just tremendous. I've seen them everything. I to the dealers. They got all the indie shops and the number of people that circulate in and out of ood go to hair salons and doctors dentists offices to. I've seen him everyone who circulate in and out of indie shops and dealers. Who don't wanna look at a two month old copy of people magazine. Pick it up. So i think our advertisers are getting. Just an absolutely phenomenal deal. Because i've seen it in some absolutely bizarre places but you know every time. I'm ed porsche. Ag whether in your life or somewhere iraq magazines and panorama there it blows me away. Actually segue right into one of my next discussion points. Ma kind of connection. Do you have with the porsche factory. Because i know that in some cases with other marks clubs don't have particularly tight connection their role and their relationship is probably not as close as yours is with the mothership. We have an extraordinarily good relationship with him. Obviously were independent of them but they treat us extraordinarily well just in terms of access they inouye take the club or the readership for granted. I mean they treat us in most ways like they treat any other publication. Whether it's our driver run track we go on same press trips and retreated essentially the same way. I've been enormously appreciative over the years in terms of the access. And how well they treat the club and how much they valued the club in the members and would you pull push out single amount. Put a spotlight on them. Obviously they're enjoying revenues and sales worldwide that other manufacturers would envy as even some of their compatriots in the vw. Stable seem to be faced with challenges. Porsche seems to be just absolutely incapable of failing. Their margins are incredible. You know how to work the option list who hasn't racked up twenty granted options without even trying when they're working on the configuration deviated stitching takes on a whole new meaning doesn't it. I did a story early on. I bought a nine twenty four in seattle for two thousand dollars and decided to two thousand mile. Road trip is two thousand miles in two thousand dollars four shift and one of the things that we did in the lead up to the story was we just went down the nine eleven option list to see how many options there were were more expensive than this entire car was a lot of options. But i mean who doesn't love it honestly in the secondary market win guys like us with looking for us nine or something like that. We totally geeked about any of cool option. And of course now everybody me as guilty as any totally geeked up by the whole concept of paint sample and so many of the things that really distinguish one porsche from the other cash. Yeah what a franchise. Or she's built their their entire instagram feeds. That are nothing but p. t. s. cars and they've got like a half million fossils. You've started a site. is that right. That helps people really kind of get in their drill down and see what these colors look like. Yeah it's rainbow dot org. It is over five hundred different colors over five thousand images that have been large crowd source submitted by users and fans of the site and the coverage of the entire porsche palette from three fifty. Six era to date is remarkable. They're very few colors. That don't have an image or e. n. n. b. o. w. r. e. n. b. o. w. Yeah there are very very few colors. that don't have an image associated with them but there's also content site also has stories that are both original and curated that deal with porsche. Colors there is also some commentary about the color is basically. If you don't know what amaranth is the site tells you what the origin of the color name is and also a rating scale. It's purely subjective. Ins meant to be fun. Not necessarily based on production numbers. But it's one to five pink and scale so one paint can guards red grand prix white five pink cans mint green and two three and four in between. But it's kinda fun. Kissed the next two hours of your life. Goodbye when you wake up at three o'clock in the morning and you need to see what apricot really looks like. You've got a reference point. We just put an apricot an instagram feed. I'd never seen it well. It's a fantastic color. Isn't it is. I'd never seen it before though. Somebody submitted a picture of an apricot beige and sixty four coupe. That was the year of the early nineties when some unusual colors started great. The guards red monopoly guards red silver black grand prix white. Nearly ninety started to get speed yellow. Green apricot ruby stonewall. Those colors that are just legendary. Today had their roots in the early nineties. That's right when i see a maritime blue car riviera blue ruby stone speed. Y'all like why did not order these colors. We'll all pay like a thirty percent premium now for them or more but back then. There were bolted to the showroom for the dealers never.

"All right into the night sky once again we go wildcard line you're on the air good morning Hey good morning art yes Sir Hey I had an experience when I was in aboard a troop when I was twelve years old and I've never been able to know exactly what this was I want to lay it on your own maybe three year guess that you have made you can help me will will be back they will what happened I was on a a hike up the mountain I am calling from Colorado from Denver hi yes and the truth by US with attached to a church and it three eight year they'll become apparent later wipes said that but anyway are going up and it was a pretty tough trail switch back all the way probably opt out about eleven thousand feet elevation rule that's up there yes yeah and I wasn't particularly in shape kids so I took a few breaks along the way and when we got to the very top there was this huge boulder that they had a pathway through the the path we I knew I was near the top and the instruments so that boulder and I couldn't see what was on the other side of it because it was too big Russian treatment stuff on the other side but I saw in my mind's eye instantly know slash what what's on the other side there was a I knew there's gonna be a big green grassy area there's a big loan tall tree at the end of the field and someone was sitting at the base of the tree waving that mean hollering my name I couldn't tell who it was in this flash it just freaked me out so much I paused it just took an instant product to come in my mind and I just went ahead and sixty seconds later when and sure enough the scene with the exactly our my Sunday school teacher that was submitted for you giving me a hard time that he had beat me up so you let no man beat you up you know just as in me well I couldn't help with him but what what what one that I mean it wasn't a life saving paying a lot of them like Hey there's a fire burning out of the house or no it was pre cook missions well I think I've had two theories explaining in I don't know if either make sense one hi one person told me they filed that before we came to earth we had our life shown to us what are some things we are experiencing some like that how I think that's reaching I think it was a simple case of precognition and by that I mean the mind does appear capable of on occasion giving you a momentary momentary precise look into the rather immediate future you know it does happen to me only once and it's happened to a lot of other people it seems to be an ability we have we cannot seem to control it we can't call it up on demand although there are people who claim they can it just happens it may be that oxygen deprivation at eleven thousand feet which begins about their may have had you in a slightly altered state I think of what you described is pretty much a simple case of precognition east of the Rockies you're on the air hello good morning art yes thank you very much for taking my call very welcome where are you and west of Philadelphia the my name is Stephanie okay okay first of all I I remember a couple weeks ago you were asking for a recommendation I think you were trying to I guess you're hoping to snag a couple of guests for show about bioethics and cloning yes and I did there is a well I'm I'm sorry for the delay but there is a professor at the university of Pennsylvania and Philadelphia name the Arthur Kaplan here's a bio ethicist make quite a few appearances on local media here believe in the call at one point for a paper in the city interest to speak to him what what does he can you give us a synopsis of what he feels about cloning well long story short he is opposed to it but he does he does have a very political bent to all of I would say it's not his night act the controversial but you know cloning is probably going on right now he will likely have human cloning it's probably already occurred the other to the I need to bring up I remember quite awhile back when the band full release there most recent album you've mentioned something about actually having the the band's vocalist on your show and you were quite interested in what the band knowing their background that they're interested in mysticism among other things do you ever have any success in contacting their people yes and words words that and where it stands I'm gonna have to find out I don't know I know that they wanted to be on the up and then wonder for much longer okay all right thank you very much for the call and take care and there seems to be there seems to be something of a connection between musicians and the propensity to be interested in the paranormal and I'm not exactly sure why that is musicians of course are very creative people by nature right they're imaginative they live of kind of a mental life and so I guess I'm not too surprised at that but to over the years I I really I'm cease to become surprised and I I think that's why I think that's why so many people who are in the year the music field tend toward interest in the kind of things that we discussed on this program I think that is the connection the creativity out west of the Rockies you're on the air hello hello art hi this is Tom from monomer Utah yes Sir I have a new category of of circumstance but your audience by could please sure I have a story the took place back in nineteen sixty nine the memory of it is is so vivid that I could I could almost count the rocks on the road I was on my way to work I was twenty years old I was late I was driving an Austin Healey and going way too fast and I I I went through a red light and there was a there was a I never forget this it was a nineteen sixty three Ford wiring of those great big yellow jobs with the with fake would criminalize sure do okay big mama I was driving so fast that I didn't even have to have a chance to bring the break I mean when when that car pulled out in front of me I was obviously going to hit it and I just went down on the steering wheel and close my eyes and nothing happened I opened my eyes and that car was behind me whole heart there's no way I've heard these stories the guard art this is this is not a hoax no no no no I believe you are you pass through that vehicle right after that vehicle down the no all I listen I've heard I've received a lot of emails from people who have said the same thing now the only question is what happened to you did a guardian angel take a second and it just wasn't it you know your number wasn't up yet or did some guardian angel help you or what exactly you know I thought about a thousand times and I you know the first thought that comes muse maybe there's something I'm supposed to do or maybe it was a baby I was supposed to have her right wrist you know those kinds of thoughts there's nothing spectacular about an honest to god my memory when it actually happened it yeah I mean it was a miraculous circumstance but it didn't seem that out of the ordinary at the times that make sense yes I mean at the moment it was just like whoa that's interesting and then I just went off to work but it but but you know it's like you're you're really close to tears when that happens because it yeah you have just seen death in the eye and walk past and walk past it there was no flashing lights there's none of this basic you know Hollywood stuff I just but I I honestly honestly got all that well it's worthy of Hollywood believe me it definitely is but it was a bit but it it it would make a dime on Hollywood because it wasn't that big flashing lights kind of stuff we're all used to seeing you don't understand is that makes sense to you oil with today's special effects believe me they could dramatize that they could show you whizzing to work right I mean just blowing lights and then the owner was young and they could show you shutting your eyes just before the instant of impact and then being out on the other side with that vehicle behind you that's incredible but but you know my question is I'm wondering if anyone else is had this maybe they could give you a call or something and I and you know you talk about channel people want and I see I see those kinds of things as well my mother always in doorways and they're always they're usually dark doorways and made minor usually like if I get the impression it's just a little boy I don't know why I don't know if it's a if it's a it's a kid I'm supposed to have been on the road or what but but it has nothing to do with this is a totally different well maybe you're going to save the world I don't think you never know all right well thank you for the story I guarantee you I will get more now has anybody else out there at the instant of impact at the assurance that the assured moment of death suddenly passed through whatever it is that would have killed you instantly I know those stories are out there some people tell them when they talk about guardian angels and that sort of thing but he didn't mention a guard me guardian angel just that it occurred first time caller line you're on the air Hey this is Kate from California well hello how are you doing all right I have a bizarre sixties southern California story for you okay and nineteen sixty nine my roommate I lived with the family and extended family and my roommate and I used to work all day and then go dancing in riverside and then we talk about two in the morning on our way home to get some fast food or something since we were getting a young girl but one evening in the late summer of sixty nine we were on the family Dino freeway ten east right Redlands and we're going to take it off ramp and go to the detainees and pick up something to eat and then go home and then and it's a four lane road on either side of the you know going in either direction so I'm pulling off the off ramp and asking my friend well what are you going to get to eat and she's telling me and all of a sudden we were still in the car it was still driving right on the road but suddenly we weren't in this area with all the bright lights of the four lane eight lane freeway you were certainly somewhere else I was on a two lane road with nothing but dirt for miles no sign of city life wow nine no nothing and I we fully I stopped the car and my friend.
