Dr. Philippe Friedlich On Pediatric Surgery And Neonatal Therapeutic Hypothermia

"Welcome to medicine. We're still practicing I'm Bill Curtis of course I my friend and Co host Dr Steven Tailback He's the quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care these days he continues to fight on the front lines of the COVID battle in California for which we are eternally grateful Steve How you doing I'm well thank you. It's good to be. I'm sure you've heard of children's Hospital of Los Angeles notice. Hla US News and World Report has consistently ranked the H. L. A. in the top five nationally and the number one pediatric hospital in California for thirty years. Running this remarkable nonprofit children's care hospital is nationally known for Neonatal Research and care that is funded entirely by generous philanthropists. Dr Felipe Friedli is chief of neonatologist at Children's Hospital. He is also co director of the fetal and neonatal? Institute. And he is professor of clinical pediatrics and surgery at the renowned kept school of Medicine at USC where he's published over one hundred, fifty abstracts, Peer Review Articles and book. Chapters Dr. Freedland is a rock star in one of the world's most complicated pressure filled and delicate specialties that include newborn respiratory failures newborn pulmonary hypertension even surgery on unborn babies. Can you imagine welcome Dr Felipe Free Lick? It is an honor to have you here tonight and having me. So doctor. Can you just bring our listeners up to speed on C. H. LA and your mission there? Sharon's HUSK local Sandra's mission is to care for sick children's no matter what their background cultural background or insurance they have we are. Laced to gear for family and children's in babies when there's no other place that could care for them. Are we talking about like one of the few medical specialties that truly couldn't wait for Covid to pause that's a great question fortunately or many children's covid has not been has impactful. They are some babies are insurance that are sick but by four unless we compared to adults we. Are Really lucky so far. So we're not going to spend the whole show on Kovin because frankly I think people wanted to know much more about your specialty, but maybe you could tell us a little about what kind of a regimen as C. H. L. A. Developed uniquely for this pandemic and what are some of the special things that you do at your hospital to manage this. A lot of it has to do with making sure that became screen families in staff when they arrive at the hospital in make sure that they're the environment for caring for the Germans you regardless of the reason why they're in the hospital is is optimal until the hospital has and significant resources to ensure that we screen families and visitors and parents when they arrive psychologically, how do you get your clientele to feel safe under these circumstances that has been Estonia As you can imagine a lot of families or speared to even go close to a hospital. So said, only our data's suggesting that we can provide a safest environment to bring Ren's and care for them, but it is a concern. Certainly, we can see that visit to the emergency room are significantly down obviously a lot of the outpatient clinic. I've had to restructure their environment, but I think that honest conversations with family in trying to make sure that. Children can get the care they need. So they don't have complications from their Biz orders diseases are we tried to do our best to get the message across

"We're honored to have. Dr Howard J foam and join us to catch up on medicine, practice and politics prevention, and of course a bit about our fight against. COVID nineteen so may we suggest that you pull yourself a double. Sit back and join us on medicine. We're still practicing I'm bill, Curtis. I are host. The quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care. My very good friend Dr Steven Taback, however you, Steve Hey bill good to see you. We haven't had dinner together for a while I. Don't remember what it was like. They actually have dinner and enjoy an evening. So you know we have one of our favorite experts rejoining. Rejoining us today Dr, Howard J. Felman he is board certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology will learn more about that. In a minute Howard, served a multi decade tenure at Kaiser Permanente Day as partner board member. President of the Executive Committee Chief of staff and chair of the Quality Committee. He supervised forty three hundred staff over five hundred doctors. Howard is now senior operating advisor. Advisor at the Atlantic. Street capital for their medically focused investments Dr Howard J foam. Welcome back I nice to be here. Stephen nicest to us well Hey Howard. Good to see you so last time we met in our studio in Malibu was only back in February and it seems like a whole lifetime ago in quite a year, and we're only halfway through it and we know. Know there's a lot more to come Howard. I hope you'll forgive me, but I took my nasty pill this morning, so I want to dive into a difficult issue, but as the time of this recording according to Johns Hopkins, Japan although infected early has less than one cova death per hundred thousand population, while the US has thirty nine Cova deaths per one hundred thousand population. Japan more elderly per capita than any other country. They kept their borders open during the Wu Han locked down there, stay home requests by Japanese. Government have been voluntary, as was any of the closing of their non essential businesses. And now for a country with one city that houses more than thirty seven million people. They have less than a thousand deaths countrywide, but the hell is going on I. Don't know that anyone knows exactly all of the differences, but I'll give you. Some and I think that may be different. One is there's probably a genetic component to this disease that we don't quite understand. People were speculating. Why was so much more Italy because Italian get together a lot more than others people wonder with net net might have been some genetic predisposition. She decided kind storms for example, another article morbidity in patient population, so age is one thing you're right. Japanese population is actually older than the US. By other commodities like obesity, which is turning out to be a significant risk factor here is unfortunately. It's still a lot more obesity united. States than there is Japan so just because we've sorted out that the age factor may not explain it, but we have some more chronic illness in the United States spend maybe contributing to it as well and then you know the way we've handled. Handled the public health aspect of this and again I also wanted to be very careful about criticism of even the public health system because I'm sure there's a lot of things we look back and could have done differently, but we also have a lot of public health officers. Some extremely courageous ones and I'll say that I think unfortunately a some of our public does not really believe. Believe in this pandemic, the seriousness that they should, and that may be affecting the outcomes as well. There are certain communities as you know. Where substantial numbers of people were having just seemingly significant disregard, and so that might have been large numbers coming in at a just a bowl of people coming in all the ones that saturated the healthcare system made it hard to take care of. Of someone people possibly people coming in later than they should have because perhaps denial about the significance of the Selma's when it is on severe, and it's not be causing a doctor that I. don't WanNa Fault. The nurses and the doctors and rest of just I've seen what they're doing. My follow it very carefully, and I'm very proud of them, but I think because of the. The differences in population and our public health system is not working well is not resigned the way it should be, and there's not functioning in the way that it has been planned to function the

"The road trip experience. Let's talk about roads for just a minute. What's the the best road you've ever driven? Oh now that's interesting. Certainly in southern California were spoilt Angeles. Crest is remarkable Ortega highway as hard to beat even are a little canyons around here in Malibu fantastic some secret roads that are just pure torture on wheels. I love him. So there's a road Robert when you're leaving London and you want to go and check out stonehenge. There's a very long very narrow road that has these things that are called. hedgerows hedgerows the massive hedges on either side of the road and it's incredibly narrow now in the UK. You're driving something that can can only sort of be called a car driving on the wrong side of the road. They still haven't come around on side of the road and you're driving fast asked and there is all of two inches. Maybe three between your mirror and the mirror. That's coming the other way and you are zipping as fast as you can and at some point or another when you get proficient at it you feel so powerful that I think that was is my favourite road. that's great. That's great well certainly. European roads are narrow. And that's part of the challenge. I remember first. Lamborghini Mercy Lago excursion in in Italy was fraught with quite a bit of terror. Just trying to navigate some of those small streets in the old sections of town. Mike God those cars aren't designed for that they're designed for Fiat five hundred hundreds apropos of which I just have to give a shout out. You talk about discoveries that there's still an opportunity to make discoveries as you get older. I recently got a Fiat. Five hundred. Don't laugh not only. Is it one of the most remarkable and accomplished pieces of automotive clans and Jars Frank Stephenson Steffensen gets an a plus for designing one of the most perfect cars in the world. It's also a fantastic car to drive now. The old saying you can have more fun driving a slow. Oh car fast and he can have driving a fast car slow pertains but when it comes to handling dynamics and the ability to park in places that you could never park before in an urban setting around town that little Fiat is magic back to Rhodes. I think one of the best roads I ever drove was probably in Morocco. I guess a king at the time had ordered that it be pave or whatever you can do totalitarian regime. It was a smooth as glass road and some of the most incredible landscape in the world. And I just. I just wish that I'd had a better car to drive there some time ago. I believe you may have orchestrated this. We had the folks from Clarin setup a rob report trip we. Yeah I think we called it. The New England fall colors drive and I would have to say that. That's my best driving experience. Just absolutely stunning roads through mountains in kind of a fireworks display of changing colors in the fall where the leaves are such a bright red and orange and yellow and the roads. Look doc absolutely like they've been paved in the last fifteen minutes. Well you know the seasons or something that drivers get to enjoy the east coast and certainly from the seat of a McLaren. It's hard to beat that that experience one more road that you and I took together. Which one was that and between us we had four wheels and we left the Maui for season? Nah closer to the line of airport. We hung a right hung another right and suddenly we were going up a mountain road to a volcano. Do you remember Knbr that fantastic. Guideline de road idea that vocal I do that. That's a magical place and again a place that you wish you could transport some of your favorite cars because put a car you love on a road like that. It's hard to forget one thing I've got to say. Is that in my last thirty years. One of the absolute highlights of my life has has been knowing and playing with you well spectacular. I love you to death. Well Bill I feel the same way and I think it's amazing that cars can bring people together to have those kinds of experiences but guess what if all we had was sandbox and a bunch of wooden blocks I think we would have just as much fun..

Yes you're right especially now. More than ever provenance is sort of key to the experience chance. I tried to go back to the beginning in fact just recently I had some conversations with the prior owner of my Lamborghini and we've gone back to discover the original channel owner passed away a few years ago. But I've been in correspondence with his son. I want to know about the earliest years of the car and really every little scrap of correspondence respondents and every receipt everything pertaining to a car and just so you guys know when he's has every receipt and he restores a car. It's a lot of received notebooks out everything and notebooks on conversations notebooks on all the ephemera that unfortunately in the past you know so much of it has been lost and in the world of art. It's hugely important to one wishes that you could go back five hundred years to the origins of a particular engraving or Woodcut but thanks to collect stamps stamps that sometimes exist on the back of these things we can at least travel back to the seventeen hundreds or maybe even a little earlier depending we just got done with the Super Bowl and I think there were six different automotive companies that were advertising their electric car. That's right well. That's the crystal ball. We're all going to be looking into. It's all those cars or is that something else you know disparagingly. Call them toasters but.

I like the quiet the solitude and frankly the sun isn't a friend friends so I liked at the top up exactly the opposite of you. Bill were driving in the breeze. You're driving Sol. And whenever I see an sa I still think you Gotti the engine or the Stereo Well they certainly get points for both Bugatti W sixteen engine is something remarkable. I mean we haven't had a sixteen cylinder powerplant our plants since the Xetra and before that you had to go back to the pre-war to look at something like a Cadillac. But you're an audio file Well they do a remarkable job with their speakers in their audio systems. The real music comes from the engine though. I didn't say that didn't necessarily as a stereo should have while you're driving the why get out of the car. You're well that's a good question. That's a very good point. Okay so let's go to the mid two thousands roles or my book. That's an interesting when you know my Bach or I should say mercedes-benz Saito spins got points for trying to resuscitate a brand that was more since nineteen thirty seven now the Zeppelin that was a my Bach. And do you remember how much of the toy shack back the rolls on my buck took up. You had these classy old beautiful collector restored elegant cars and I had these monoliths that just took up half the studio. Well in case he ever get kicked out of the house. He had a place to sleep. When you consider more than a century of automaking unbroken even through the war they continue to manufacture or something my Bach over? They did kind of have a break as they move from into the BMW l.. Absolutely true rate story. That is well it. Is You know especially when you consider the year before they were officially taken over. I think they sold something like seventy cars in the United States. They were as good as dead. The embalmer was on the way and BMW. Certainly resuscitated Acetate of the brand in a beautiful way. And we've had a chance to talk with some of the designers that were a part of that resurrection. If you want to hear more about Rolls Royce design. Listen to Ian Cameron and his so wife Verena close talking about design it Rolls Royce and BMW design works in the two thousands and similarly we had young designer named Andrea Sterner vp pe of design and global architecture Karma automotive who was formerly with Rolls Royce. And the W so really. It's an interesting way of saying that design and sort of comes full circle and there are a lot of revolving doors in a very small community of designers. And I think that's what allows so many of today's modern cars to to have such a sort of a rich confluence of ideas that came from all different places so to restore or not to restore rubber. Well that's a great question. You know. Certainly the trend over the last decade or more has been to preserve cars in other words a sympathetic restoration or no restoration at all. You look at auction results and sometimes these cars. That haven't been dusted in thirty years and look like they belong in the bottom of a chicken coop because that's where they came from get more money than a beautifully restored example. I think that's lunacy. I think that it's matter of people wanting to be the first sort of pop the Cherry on this poor old thing but the fact of the matter is Well restored car than a properly restored. Car is probably one of the most beautiful physical artifacts in the world. The only reason to keep a car original and unrestored is if it's truly remarkable condition and but when things like body work and paint and all the other hard parts of become so dilapidated that they can't really be brought back with a little Polish and a feather duster her then. It's probably time to go down to bare metal. You're not just focused Robert on the art and design of a fine automobile. You're a multifaceted human being and you've collected art for the last few decades but in radically different disciplines. Tell us a little about your collection. You know if cars are art than art as art too so I think really. I've often said I'd lied all my cars on fire to preserve my old master engravings. I think when you look at your museum you realize that the same way you have a taste for different beauty in different cars. You have that in art hangs on walls and you have to very radically different different collections. Well there's no question that you sort of Boomerang. From the High Gothic era late Fifteenth Century Early Sixteenth Century Northern European prints and then in embracing tribal art from CNN for me it's a fascinating subject.

"GONNA say a line and you just give me a quick answer in a line. Torquato Ben Talk you can never use the top end but you can use every pound foot torque from the very geico comfort or tight to the road gotTA gotTa go tight to the road. The CD pants feel is probably more important than spread out so far and wide as they say greenacres. You know. It's always interesting when you realize. Is that the weakest point the bottleneck the problem in a car is the connection between the CD. Your pants and the automobile absolutely go some of the seats that really really matter automatic or manual manual every day of the week. In fact I would have to say that until recently. I've never had an automatic and I only got that because I had to. They didn't offer it in a stick. So you're probably not Tesla Guy. Well I think it manual transmission allows somebody to really engage the driving experience grant other not as quick quick is the the paddle shift transmissions. But also you don't include the paddle shifter in the manual like the old Ferrari four thirty well if it shifts itself then. It's an automatic book damage. I think there's something about stirring gearbox that makes you a better driver it makes you think before you act in for me. That's half the fun of the experience. You're on the profile dare that I guess. That's one of the steering wheel or leather well. I'm a fan of the woods steering during wheel. Only because I'm old enough to remember when those were actually standard fare on so many British cars. You've got a nine eleven back in nineteen sixty six and well. It came with a wooden steering wheel. It'd be shelby had a wooden wheel all the cars that I really truly had beautiful. They sure did that was like sitting in a wooden smoking room. Exactly what was your favorite wooden. MM steering wheel. Favorite wooden steering wheel would have to be by Nardi. The Italians make them like nobody else. Okay sport motor racing racing is highly overrated it especially when you're as mediocre a driver as I am. I like sport. It's Kinda like baby bear's Porridge. It was just right. Mama's was too cold and daddy's was was too hot but sport mode is just right to explain it to our listeners and with the racing mode where disengaged all the computer mechanisms that we've basically gotten spoiled with. There's a reason those were developed for people like me who aren't smart enough to know how to actually use that car when when it's a expressing all it's evil personality which is why the sport modes just right in most cars. It gives you just the right amount of road field. Handling Dynamics Hammocks are tight. The engine gives me a little bit of extra growl and back talk. But it's not so raucous not so out of control that the damage to yourself or or anybody else okay. Here's a mean one. BMW or Mercedes whale for me. It's no question that's BMW. My first car was a BMW. You'RE NOT TO BE WRONG ITEM EH. Exactly for a guy who who's never been without a Mercedes. I guess I'm probably going to get a little bit of blowback from you but you're actually driver you like driving. You know in all fairness this I think they are both remarkable cars and in fact alone car. I'd love to have in the stable. Just because it's such a sleeper and such an incredible utility vehicle is the latest Mercedes. Shady's am g wagon. Boy that he series wagon is phenomenal and it looks good. It drives well and he can throw a couple of fifty pound bags of fertilizer in the back and still have room for three cases of Chateau Lafitte. It doesn't get any better than that. Well okay Two wheels or four. Well that's interesting. I think for wheels ultimately because certain age one has to make concession to frailty and the brevity of human life but as a younger man to nobody listens to podcast. That will understand Stan. Then well as a young man to wheels and I still get dewy eyed whenever I look at the motorcycles that are sitting stationary like floor lamps in my studio I mean my old do Khadi Might Marini so many the bikes that have gone through my hands. All harleys that I built I missed missed them dearly and I missed the experience. We had some of our best times writing wheel. When we in our company for you guys listening we had like eight people we all went out and got motorcycles? And and every Sunday we would be driving through the hills of Santa Monica and just had the best time to. Here's an important question Robert Harley soft Taylor road king as as a matter of fact for me. It's a Harley sportster cafe doubt but all that being said I am very fond of my soft tail. It was a great bike. I think if I had it to do over again I'd probably by a road king the comfort and the presence of that big ball buffalo is really something different from that. Exactly Buick Wild L.. Alfred forty-five comfortable that I had when I was a kid. Ice Driving or thermal tracking the desert. Oh wow well is driving. You know being from Southern California. I don't have a whole lot. Conversant with cold weather. Driving is driving is a lot of fun but I have to say track down. Thermal is a kick in the head. And let's face it. You can go out for great.

"Leave the world better than you found it. Drink crowd source water. We are back. Thank goodness so I gotta ask you Robert. If money wasn't an issue. What car would you someday like in your garage? Oh Gosh well. Unfortunately money is an issue but there are a few I think of all the fascinating cars from Italy's passed a car like the east so a three three C gelato. Bits Herreni's race car or even a fifty. Three hundred Strada would be car of choice. What a look? What an incredible edible profile at cuts and an amazing engine to Powertrain that doesn't really get the credit. It deserves gus. What Chevy three twenty seven? Why because bit Sereni Sereni realized that even though he designed the greatest? GTO's of the era and the Lamborghini engine and all these other great things that when it came to performance for dollar a small manufacturer like bit Sereni or Esso could rely on the Americas best an chevy or a Ford or Chrysler v Eight. Those are hard to beat. So yes that car would be the car that I'd WanNa have actually our friend Bruce Meyers probably the most important one around. It was a Lamont car from the nineteen sixty four season and that is a remarkable vehicle. Looks Great. It's got great history and provenance and of course. Nobody knows what they are. There's some other the cars to it would be hard to go wrong with a first generation Lamborghini. COON Tasha L. P.. Four hundred the periscope. Oh fantastic car. As far as the FERRARIS are concerned. Name your poison. There are so many wonderful Ferraris Robert. Let's play a little game. I'M.

"Quick story way back when we had been invited onto the USS aircraft carrier. Carl Vinson which is a nuclear powered aircraft carrier was someplace in the middle of the Pacific and Robert. Denying a few of we're friends from the company. Were lucky enough to be flown out there. Having arrested landing on top of an aircraft carrier spend the night and I tell you this story because my favorite moment was when we were given a tour of the boat as they called it which had fifty two hundred people living on board that was asleep on the water. Uh We walked into some of the barracks and one of the guys. One of the sailors suddenly stood up saluted and said woman woman on board and everybody stood up and saluted and that was Robert with his hair down to the middle of his back and but by the way he was the best stay had seen in a while. Well it does get lonely out at sea but they were out there serving our country hats off to them. It was really amazing experience. Actually take off half way it really. Was You talk about celebration. And some of these cars. Whether it's regarding Kyron or Tesla one hundred with the battery pack. There's no such thing as acceleration. Jeez Jeez compared to be chatting shot catapulted off a deck. That's quite an experience. Remember when they actually made us sit through about a half hour. Seminar are on how we should treat the takeoff and what they said they were gonNA counted down and how we had to put our hands. You sit backwards on this plane and we had to put our hands inside the seat belt gloves because otherwise our hands would hit the seat in front of us we took off backwards and we would break our risk risk on the seat in front of us and we listen to that and we were like. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah we can. We have a beer and anyway they put us on this thing they give us the signal they give us three seconds to prepare. We stick our hands in this thing and this thing takes off and all of us experienced what it's like to have our is actually leave our head and we all turn to each other and just kind of went. WHOA yeah looked like rat fink? It was quite something and then of course you think about what the guys that flew the SR seventy-one at mach three or whatever must have had to deal with so we were in a mail plane at the time. Yeah exactly really quite something. I'm going to go back to the Maserati because you had a Maserati Quattro portait forte customized. Now that was actually a grand sport. That was ruined Maserati. Had just come back country but then you had a convertible to Bill Iota Grant Sport Spider if I'm not mistaken and it. It was a fine little pair of cars and before anybody really new Maserati. It was kind of not the household name that it is today. And I like that Grand Sport had had the essentially a Ferrari. Three six exte- V8 in it and from the F.. Three sixty in remarkable car. I remember that when the President of the company came to me and said have you seen the colors that Robert chose for that car. We all actually it kind of boomerang back on him because then president of the company in Italy was visiting us.

"Welcome to cars that matter. This is Robert. Ross today we get to talk one on one with Bill Kurtis host Kirk. Oh media's meet me in the Middle Bills Co hosted with me on this podcast on occasion but today it's really just the two of US friend to friend. Welcome Bill May. Hey Robert how you doing. It is nice to sit down with you for a change. It's as great but Robert. I've always been so impressed with your design sensibility. Everything whether how you keep your home every aspect of your life the way you dress the watches you wear the shoes that you wear well from the neck down. I try my best bill from the neck up. I only look at the neck up Robert to what I want to know is. What's the difference for you between the design of a car that you WANNA drive or the design of car that you want to collect a sometimes? It's just a matter looking at them hanging on the wall like you would do with a fine painting or putting them on a pedestal as you would do with a piece of sculpture and I know there are a lot of people who disagree with that sentiment I mean people people constantly disparaged the garage queen mentality in other words a car that so perfect too campy driven on the street but at a certain point. I think it's fair to say that a cars served its initial initial purpose and like a championship race horse. It's time to put it out to pasture and let it enjoy itself. It's dotage in the dotage of some of these. Old Cars is truly on the a show field and not necessarily saying that. That's a bad thing at all. I car that mattered that you owned. Did you buy to drive or did you buy to collect. While the the first car that mattered that I bought two drives by very first car and the only reason that it mattered was because it was my first car and something that I've quired for all of twelve hundred dollars with my hard earned money. That was real money and it was a little. BMW Sixteen hundred and certainly since then the sixteen hundred two thousand two series has become a very important landmark in the history of BMW and really put him on the map but if figures that you were that sophisticated back then the rest of us were soldering lawnmower engines onto stingray bicycle and that was our transportation. You're buying 'em W sixteen hundreds well. It was certainly an unknown back in the Stone Age but for me it was a great way to sort of understand. What kind of fun could it'd be had with a low powered car that was light and Nimble and really took advantage of some of our roads and southern California thousand dollars cost by well it was actually twelve hundred? That was a lot of money worked at a picture frame shop. In my later high school years it was actually a picture frame shop that also doubled as a head shop. I did the picture frame owner in his sister ran the paraphernalia section. funnily enough I think it was probably the only kid that never smoked weed back then. I was too busy studying and painting and doing all sorts of things that most kids probably weren't doing so might my first car was a buick wildcat. Nineteen sixty two four forty five four barrel put about three. BMW BE A sixteen hundreds inside that thing inside the trunk. Actually right. Our record was holding twelve people in the car now. Not Everybody was actually in the car. We lived John Long Island and we would go to Jones beach. These were too long bench seats so it was very easy to have four people in the front seat and four people in the backseat. And then you had of course the back panel behind the back seat convertible top would come down and so we would go down. Brook Parkway from Garden City Long Island to Jones speech with twelve people in the car and we would wave at the police as we drove by them on the Metro Parkway with twelve people in one car and I had look like a parade float on Madison Avenue. That's awesome actually. That car was in the parade in gardens to the one point or another. And we're moving right along. Let's great the great thing about about that car is. It didn't look like anything that was going to be able to build up any speed and this thing was so long just a huge car and back then at Roosevelt field we would have match races in. You've seen stuff like that in old movies. And whatever but you'd have your pink slip with you. My Pink Slip Slip. Cost me five hundred twenty five dollars for that car. That was my investment. Was Real money but this car. That looked like it really couldn't move at all was incredibly really fast now back then we were using Sonoko to sixty dinosaur gasoline. And you'd go through basically a tank of gas in a mattress that would be you know two miles long straightaway and this car would beat the other cars and they were like. GTO's they were all these Camaros that were all hopped popped up. They looked really impressive. Could not touch this car and so this was a lot of fun. The problem was every time you had a couple of these races my harmonic balance. I would go out and we would have to replace that on this car. Probably six or seven times and it was about a twelve hour job that-that's knock taint of heart but anyway. That was a great car for me. But I'm going to jump ahead to a time where I was in an Italian restaurant woodland hills and I looked outside the front window window and there was a guy dancing around the portion parking lot. I wasn't exactly dancing. I think I was moving quickly leap from car to car because I was trying to remember certain details and the only way to really do it was to sort of instantly compare and contrast but what you had to leap between one car and the other to be able to keep those images fresh in your mind you were there for quite a while and I remember seeing you the next morning. Finding out that that it was you and finding out that that day you were ordering your first brand new off the line push old habits die hard and I've done it a few times time since May have a way of getting under your skin. There's no question about it to tell us about that. No Gosh I always the color because that was just crazy. That was an interesting time. In Porsche's nine eleven Kevin Lineage. The nine sixty four was the model series and it had been introduced in Europe in nineteen eighty nine came to America in nineteen ninety and bright about that time Porsche. Russia was in really dire straits. I believe in Nineteen ninety-one. They sold something like sixteen thousand cars which is a paltry sum and certainly not enough to keep the company and business but I bought a new ninety one career to and it was a turquoise green metallic the only one that I've ever seen then or sense and a gorgeous thing that was one of the cars I sure miss. So what was your next after. was that the Maserati. Did that come next. No no I had I think after the Green Porsche avoid things sort of melt together. You know you get old. And all of of a sudden the decades melt together. Not just scary for those of you listening. Who didn't know Robert Back then? He had hair down to the middle of his back jet black. You didn't pay me enough to.
