"Just kinda wanna do something. Hey, yeah. Oh, it's not that I need to do. It's like really kind of want to. I don't know, just to see the reaction. And it's fun, right? It's like fun to do silly stuff. It's fine. A lot of the goldbergs. Okay, so I want to touch on this. So apparently someone from Chevrolet, one of the product marketing managers over there was on a podcast recently. And they were asking him about the Z06, the new Z06, it looks fantastic. It's fast. It sounds great. And they're saying, well, what's the pricing going to come in at? And we heard rumors of a hundred grand. And then he kind of danced around it, but it was basically saying that the stingray to Z06 base price of the stingray versus the Z06 base price. The gap in between there would be about on par with what the previous gen Corvette was. So the previous gen Corvette started it a little bit lower. So this thing right now, the C 8 is a little bit higher. So what does that what does that mean? It'll be a 120. That's what it means. No surprisingly, he's saying that gap was smaller than what we thought before, something like 20%. So if you apply that now, this could the Z06 could come in base price mind you under 90 grand. There could be 89 9 9 5 somewhere around there. It could basically be 90,000. To the previous model, which was the previous model was 78,000. So respectable. Yeah, maybe we're talking ten, 12 grand over what it was before, knowing what you're getting. And certainly worth it. There's probably going to be a handful of options and a lot of people want that track pack with the really aggressive stuff. And that'll probably add 18 to 20 grand on top of it. But I mean, you're probably into a really nice Z06 for under a hundred grand if you want and probably under one 20 if you wanted outfitted with pretty much everything. And you're talking sub three seconds zero to 60 times that sound that flat play. A lot of car for the amount of money that lesser cars are being sold for now to put it. Listen, absolutely. Now, let's not talk about the bullshit $30,000 markup dealers are probably going to be asking for, but that aside that aside, if GM and Chevrolet can get this thing base price of anywhere around 90,000 bucks, I say kudos you guys holy shit, great job. I think that would be a fantastic, a fantastic number for sure. We're all used small people who can fit in that car. That's right, I'm gonna fit in it. Love you guys tell you about trico, let me guys. Let me tell you guys about tricho over a century ago, trica was the first to make wiper blades. They've been a step ahead of mother nature ever since.

"Atlanta atlanta. Yeah there's probably damn that's expensive. Yeah and it's affecting corvette you know quarter of a million dollars for fucking corvette now you know why because the real collectors. The fucking corvettes aren't touching the eight. They don't want no part of that shit. The guys you see that the guys we talk shit about no bullshit. But i still give mad respect four. 'cause i put corvette guys up there with ferrari and porsche lamborghini geyser just fucking posers no offense lamborghini. Guys that do listen. You're trying to catch up to the forwards and for the corvette guys. The ferrari guys in the porsche. Gas who these guys know shit will wear corvettes issues put on corbett underwear socks. I you know there were incorporated underwear strip down. Let me see it. Yeah but i mean the portion for orig as. We're the same fucking way and you could always tell the loyalists were those guys. Yeah you know you look over and it's usually an older guys got it corvette at on its fuck and then you say that dude out and about not driving his corvette somewhere on him. He's got some shit says corvette fucking wall at something. Yeah something something on them probably is underway again. That's the color i have. Yeah that's fucking nice. Your mama's twelve hundred worker but my wasn't a convertible because as you're stupid yeah it's to me a convertible. Just don't see the point in having a super car. That's a convertible for if you wanna drive at driving now not if you wanna put put it through hell because here's the thing and just hear me for a quick second on that color. I love that color. it's lemoyne's blue think I think it's an enema in blue. Anima here's my reasoning. The way we drive cars if something were to ever happen. And we had a rollover. And i'm in a convertible. Fuck that fuck that. Yeah and not saying. We're not safe because we are it can happen. I mean something could come loose or someone could get over. When you're getting over. Yeah someone can speed up and you weren't expecting it. You know just some. I do not want to be a convertible if that were to ever happen. Yeah so that's my take on that. Yeah but that's my rant on fucking chevrolet fuck them hoes. factum host them bitches So the last question. That was the last question. The only other thing i have is new york. And they're stupid. Law new york gave put out a thousand dollar fine for loud exhaust. Here's my fucking rebuttal to new york. You're fucking stupid. There's an electric car outrunning everybody. That has no exhaust. Fuck off not gonna stop street racing. Yeah i mean. I wonder if that's what it's about or it's just like it makes them feel better about being assholes me. It's the same thing is california. I mean go figure california in new york just You know basically finding away to piss people off like this manufacturing stupid things to think of to To be a pain in everybody's asking california saying if your car is modified tuned at all you can't pass the smog inspection you know similarly like there are a lot of tunes that actually make the cars run more efficient you know. Why why. Why would you penalize people for You know and with the exhaust thing too. It's like oh if you have a modified exhaust we're gonna find you just like it's all those little things that just erode and continue to erode people's feelings of being free and and you know feeling like you live in a society based off of liberty which Which we really don't anymore fucking disturbing fact Han what do you got. Fuck you new york about the exhausts anything. Well i've one question about Well it's it's more about like kind of the law that we were just talking about When it comes to these modified cars is it just and i know a little bit about the art. What's the what's your definition of. A tune is a tune just the electrical component program component to it. Yeah okay cool. Just changing the parameters in the ecu from stock to something else. No i thought it was like when you add a whole bunch of shit to to a lot of the ad the tune to add a whole bunch of shit if you get an exhaust you have to also tune because the the stock. Ecu is accommodating for a certain level of of catalytic converter You know impedes or certain fuel air ratio mixes or whatever but But you know like in the case of both of our turbo s.'s. years doesn't have to be tuned yet right now it hasn't had You have to tune it had to be turned because what i took off already know okay. So so mine has just attune. There's nothing else done to the car whatsoever. Had to be because i mind stop. Yeah fuck joan getting. I'm getting new rooms. Put on my ship tomorrow which will get to put those air filters in showed me rooms. They look sick. Rooms are fantastic. Yeah you doing at the house. Yeah they're coming to come same group to bring some shit over and get it done. I know how to do it now. What else you got anything. Just thank you to you guys. Know bullshit man. Appreciate you tune in to to see the live chat questions and comments and and listenership Yeah we wouldn't wouldn't do this if you guys didn't give enough ship for people. Listen to make it worth doing. And and Yeah unfunny america comes out in a couple of weeks to so check that out. That's gonna be good times. Also the person. The person that i said that i talked too much and my laugh. Sounds like a fucking dying meal. Fuck you don't take a personal. Don't don't read the comments. Have you get into these people's comments and hate here fox no. He seemed nice about it though he was like. I'll go choke myself now. That's a pretty good idea. Now that was respect to my. He's you. I don't care if he likes me or not. I mean yeah you can't I mean like. I don't give a shit who you are what you do what you say. There's going to be people that disagree with you. Thank you fucking idiot. Or whatever i mean. There's one piece of advice in the comments section that i can give you is. I'm not saying ignore them. But just everything with a grain of salt have thick skin. And don't let them get under it because It it you know. It's just you're just wasting your time. If you get pissed off the one one guy was like i was looking at something on yours saying the comments. I was like that motherfucker just comment and on ours. And i was looking. And he's like new studios great. But you look like you're looking over the people and i'm like this fucking do then. I go read what he wrote on ours. It looks like l. Spend all the money on. Mike groff we did. And here's why hundred eight thousand serbs thirty. Four thousand fuck off now but we're slowly adjusting this and i mean it's all a work in progress i mean even the mic drp studio is quite different than when i first started here You know and and i put. I put the the resources that that. I think it needs to to look the way that it is even with that right. I mean there are people that in the old studio would say. Oh you know the cameras sock or like you know get a bigger studio or or whatever and then you get a bigger studio in this people like it. Looks like you know it's the tonight show and you're talking down on and there's other people that are like it's awesome. I love it. Make everybody like no matter what i don't give fuck what you do. There's going to be people that think it's dumb or that it sucks or that you'd change it or whatever but You know ultimately. I do what i think makes the most sense and and i like the way that it set up and And so that's how it is for now simply read this. Yeah we do what we want. We want good carbon.

It was the end of the road. It was the last days surf route. Sixty six as we were traveling. I mean just trying to follow it at that. Point was a you know you drive down.

Oh yeah there's a golf tournament going. On and mickey mantle. One of his sons. Were playing so. I just called the golf course. Said ma'am please speak to mr mantle.

"All right, boo. This is a personal question. All right. I've wondered this, so I never got a winner's wire, all right? So like the next Wednesday, right? You get your wire and you get you get $1.3 million or whatever. From whatever you want, the week before. Yeah, we had wires, but I never got a winners wire. What did you buy with a one point whatever, $1.2 million of a winner's wire after you won one of those terms? Was it a bulldozer? I mean, if I'm thinking about you, I'm like, oh, he probably bought like an excavator or a bulldozer or like a gun. Like 15 guns. What did he buy? A big ass piece of property. What did you buy after a big ass winner's wire on the Wednesday? Because you get them on the Wednesday after tournament week. What did you buy after the Wednesday after tournament week? I'd say that Friday after the first tournament. 'cause I missed the cut in New Orleans. I went when I drove back home because it's only three Irish from my house in New Orleans. I stopped off at the John Deere store. And I bought me a 40 20. Yeah. John Deere tracker. With a front end loader. I got that on the first one, and then the second one about me a Corvette. Oh. About me, 2009, then I take that back. I didn't buy a Corvette that went out to me and Brant won. Players, something, though, some kind of little old gathering down there in South Florida. I bought a Corvette so that had been 2010. I bought that Corvette was the only other. That's the only two things I really bought. Like just a spur of the moment by, but I bought me some money and with all the other money.

I also think that we have a fight for the soul of the Republican Party, a fight for the soul of the conservative movement, and we can no longer afford to elect Mitt Romney's Liz Cheney's or these J. D. Vance's Who are rhinos, just like Romney. Endless Cheney. We need to elect reinforcements.

One Reason Why Conservatives Are Terrible at Messaging

"Good at messaging. How else do they sell such a junk garbage agenda? It's because they're skilled messengers. Now get ready. A very good friend of mine. Explain to me why. Very well connected guy. He's a patriot, not establishmentarian. But he knows that swamp well because he fights against them a lot. He's got his tentacles and everywhere and he said to me a while ago, he said, Dan, You want to know the differences between the Democrats and the Republicans. When it comes to messaging. I'm telling you right now I'm a conservative. I'm a Republican. I'm admitting the Democrats are 1000 times better than us at messaging. But why? He explained to me, he said, all of our donors on the conservative Republican side they're like commodities guys, petroleum executives, metals industry steel, that kind of thing. They're pro business. But they're not really marketers by nature. Me. Think about it. You own a petroleum company. Petroleum products, plastic gasoline, whatever. What's your marketing pitch? Right. Is it really marketing? It's like nobody goes to a gasoline. They're like. Oh, I gotta get that gasoline. It smells really nice. I mean, nobody does that. You stop at the gas station close to your house, or you go to the one That's cheaper, right? Is there any real marketing in it? I mean, you know, once in a while, they'll be like, you know, Get Sunoco 94 or whatever. Rev up your Corvette. Who knows? But there's not a lot of marketing. Follow me. He said. This is why when I heard I never forgot this so much. I'm talking about it to you on the radio now. So when these big donors come to the Republican groups, you're uncomfortable with it. However, you may be donors money. It's fine. I'm just telling you the truth of what I heard, and he's right. A lot of them are these commodities. We have no experience in marketing because they don't have to in their industry. Marketing really isn't that big of a deal. It's just a cost industry. They go to these Republican groups and they they say things like, Hey, I want this in the platform, and here's how you should sell it, and these people just suck at marketing. They just do. He's like, That's why our message.

National Corvette Museum Sinkhole

"I'm not much of a car person. But even i know that a corvette is a classic american car. It's one of those things that the name the image is captured. A certain vibe an icon of american nostalgia of american coolness since nineteen eighty-one. Every single corvette has been made in bowling green kentucky. Which is why the corvette museum is. They are safe to say it's a major source of pride for the relatively small city. They've got the blue devil. There's the fortieth anniversary model. There's the nineteen sixty two black corvette. Even if you're not a car person. And i'm definitely not even so these. Things are still kind of amazing to look at which makes the of february twelfth twenty fourteen all the more astonishing a massive sinkhole forty feet wide and thirty feet deep open inside. The museum of these prices corvettes plunged into the songs in high school when the sinkhole happened. And i remember getting a notification on the phone while i was in class and i saw afterwards. A sinkhole had happened at the national museum. That's mariah hughes. She works in the museum's marketing department. Now not long after this happened when the museum was opened to the public. I actually came to see this in cold before they started doing any of the construction. So when you walked into that scott on really you could see all of these damaged. Cars a very large hole filled with dirt and car parts and flooring and carpet signs and stanchions. And then all around it. You could see really museum visitors mourning.

Why The 90's Was The Decade Of The SuperCar

"To pass gas. I'm your host known sites trying to always by james pump. Frey hello there. Everyone it is i james and not an pasta and joe weber. What's up wink wink nation. I'm here for you. And i am fired up and as as the boys have been Saying we are talking about ninety supercars today on this episode. We were talking before we started. Recording i think like we're a little bias as far as the nineties. Being the greatest time for supercars that's like saying like the nineties is the best time for cartoons. Yes because that's when joe and i grew up at least win win. Did you grow knowing how old a year you're six years six years old Yeah i mean born in ninety three so like my k- yeah you're the first time when you realize supercars where thing was in the nineties. I sure i heard third eye blind on the radio is what you're saying about three eleven. Her three eleven to okay got it. So like like the diablo's the labor gyn machines. Those are big big parts of your formative years for sure. Yeah now supercars are a lot more prevalent. Yeah i feel like within the last ten years like it's blew up again. But i feel like the nineties really set the president the president the president and showed what was possible and kind of like blew the whole supercar thing out of the water because we had just come out of the malays era and people were like. I want something fast and flashy and purple and green are really cool right now so. Let's just make cars like debt for sure. And i think you know from the sixties to the eighties like cars. That would be considered supercars today. I mean there are just called sports cars you know. Yeah 'cause they were. They were really fast. Yeah not the ninety s great supercars because it literally defined that genre. That's when he started seeing like dance materials carbon fiber the. That's it that's it really for me only carbon-fiber that's the only qualifier. I think we should just get right into it. Yeah let's go. let's go so so. How did we get to the nineties. Being the definitive era of supercars the term supercar itself isn't really official it. Roughly describes a high performance. Luxury or exotic. Sports car generally a two seater with at least an eight cylinder engine. Although that'll probably change here the trend towards these vehicles started as far back as the sixties when detroit started shoehorning big block. v8's into sedans and turning the results loose on the american public and of course we know those as muscle cars across the atlantic european manufacturers were also busy refining. their lightweight. sports cars what. These smaller cars lacked in displacement and seating they made up for easily in handling and driveability as a sixties turned into the seventies. Those massive motors became liabilities with the looming gas crisis and clean air act of nineteen seventy then the second oil crisis in nineteen seventy nine. The industry yet again. An american cars continued to get smaller and more efficient manufacturers in the. Us knew they had to do something. So they're carburetors. Were replaced by fuel injection and distributors being swapped for coil packs. But we weren't there yet after all the one thousand nine hundred. Five corvette made her on the same horse. Power as a well-equipped twenty twenty. Camry the so-called malays era when autos reached a low point of reliability and performance was in full swing. New emissions equipment was starving the motors of their power. And even in the instances where these new cars had style. The eighty-five corvette being a prime example was under. The hood didn't match up that being said the eighties were still an impressive decade for supercars. Just not in the united states. American consumers still reeling from the death of the muscle car scene started looking abroad for inspiring performance. Every decade is a reaction to the one that came before in the eighties shoved back. The seventies with an absolute explosion of high performance supercars a handful of imported performance. Cars like the lamborghini coon tash for testarossa and the lotus esprit were blowing enthusiasts minds and with the stock market. Looking like pikes peak. There were selling faster than cocaine in wall. Street bathrooms by the nineties. A lot of that pesky emissions tech that was thrust on manufacturers was starting to get smarter as we're onboard computers and fuel injectors the progressing technology let engines breathe better and pass their gases in ways. That didn't starve the performance. Nice if you if you like stories like this check out. Our podcast passed gas. Celebrities enrich folks. Were having a hard time justifying spending big bucks on stiff bucket seats and jarring track suspension setups and manufacturers took the hint burr example lamborghini spent the late eighties upgrading. The coon tauch into the diablo. The coon tosh is often derided for having a borderline unusable only tight interior that overheats quickly so they lengthened diablo to improve the comfort ability in the cabin. The word is this comfort. Yeah right after ability never heard of that. Is that a diablo right there. This is a blow right here and it's purple too. Yeah that's the blister. That i had

GM going electric

"Starting things off talking about general motors engines. And the reason we're doing that are two very interesting in pieces of news. We've got Last week gm announced that as of twenty thirty five th they are going to stop offering internal combustion engines in their light cars so basically you might still be able to get a va in your silverado. Twenty five hundred or something like that but vast majority of their vehicles probably even performance stuff like your corvette if the camaro still around then those are all going to be e vs or maybe plug in hybrids but basically gas a purely gas powered engines are not in their future and so i wrote up the road up the story last week and it really got my gear. Spit on that. You know g. m. is one of the oldest auto makers in the world nerd. They've got over one hundred years of history and there are some absolutely fantastic internal combustion engines in that town at also. Interestingly this week. I'm this is a story that you wrote about it is at you know. Cadillac announced that the new cto four. V black-wing c. T. v. black wing. Those are going to be the last v models from cadillac with internal combustion engines and so it really seems like gm serious about this at least for right now So yeah it's it's a weird time. Jim anything to add about the cadillac part of that. Well i mean yes. And no. I guess the bigger question is whether or not gm can actually pull this off than our commenters brought up as well as you know. Twenty thirty is a long time and time away make makes promises that doesn't necessarily keep so they they sometimes don't always follow through most of the all of the time. Maybe i i. I don't wanna sound too harsh on gm. Because i mean they're they're they're going forward and and i mean frankly they have to go for it right. The whole industry is moving in that direction. And we're we're faced with a gm lineup right. Now that is pretty much almost completely devoid of any electrification Damning they have some Just wanted just a couple of vehicles right off the top of my head. Of course they've got the the gmc hummer okay. i. I don't know if a hundred and ten thousand dollar luxury electric pickup truck is really going to be the the mainstream savior but yeah fourteen. Years can get there and cadillac. I mean these These amazing looking sports sedans. That's going to be the the end

"corvette" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM

"Right now is when the sun is like looking over that hot, sexy son of the next solar system and looking to buy a Corvette, right? Yeah, it's wondering like Do I look like a big fat red giant? Tell me, I still looks more like a nice little yellow door. Tell me I'm still hot. Yeah, Exactly. And one thing that I think is really interesting is that the smaller star is the longer it lives. Bigger Star is the shorter lives and the first stars in the universe were massive. They were incredible. So they didn't live for very long, like Those first stars. We talked about none of those around anymore. None of the stars there in the universe now are first generation stars. They're all 2nd 3rd 4th generation that kind of stuff. All the stars we see in the night sky in like the pictures of Galaxies, they're all none of those are among the first stars that were formed about 100 million years to have a big bang. It's only recently people. Scientists even saw the light from those first stars. It's really hard to see We have to use the infrared because the universe is so dense back then Our star is made out of leftover bits from other stars earlier that burned and exploded and wow and re combined, right And eventually you're saying our big ice ball of the sun is going to wreak combined with something else, maybe, and for But you can't do this forever. You know, like there's a limited amount of hydrogen and you need hydrogen to have these reactions to start. Eventually, things get yet things get dental and denser and you run out of fuel. So like, think about the Milky Way galaxy. It's got enormous blobs of hydrogen gas. Still, it's still making stars. But eventually it's going to run out. And it's gonna stop making stars and those stars. We're gonna burn for a while, but they're not gonna burn forever. So eventually everything's going to be like Iran and heavier metals. Yeah. And then things will get dark. If they're gonna get rocky things again. Iraqi. That's right. But some of the stars somebody start is gonna burn a long time. Like there are stars that have lifetimes of trillions of years. But that's not us. So in five billion years, we gotta figure something out. Yeah, well, we have to figure out how to find get to another star, and we got less than three ish billion years to figure that out. Oh, man. So we have to jump to another started that that is burning and or just learned to live in dark kind of right? Well, you know, fusion is not impossible. You know, we can copy the energy source of the stars. If if we don't necessarily necessarily need a star, right? We could power ourselves through our own control fusion different if you could figure that out. But do we have enough hydrogen or water to last that long? Yeah. I mean, this son is massively inefficient, Right? Like most of the energy, the sun gets thrown off into space and then not even used so we wouldn't need anything nearly as big as the sun. Power, human civilization so we could just go out there. Grab some of that hydrogen floating around or go to Jupiter. Maybe grab all that hydrogen create our little mini fun here. Yeah. Or you know, if you're living out in space, you don't worry about pollution like so you could just do vision, which is much easier. There's plenty of that stuff floating around. And you know you get radioactive waste just jettison the already in space. So carrots, right? Interesting because I used to think the ocean was too big and you could just polluted forever without consequences. We know that's not true. But it is true of the unit. You say that now I'm never going to feel the universe with garbage. You think in a billion years, people who say I can't believe they filled space with junk man responsible, you're gonna be like, Don't throw Don't they're plastic bags and into space Because the space dolphins are gonna it kills all those cute spacing. Yeah, he softens up choking on your cousin quiz. Yeah. Why is that funny? I don't think it's funny at all. I think you're a jerk for laughing. Yes, I Z Cool. Well, that's that's kind of interesting that idea that maybe we will never leave our solar system. You will just figure out how to make our own.

COVID's Impact On Chinese Fine Wine Consumers

"I'm going to be talking about the impacts on china's why market on how those impacts affected consumers buying behaviors. First of all this year. The buzzword hearing is locked down on but in china and we talk about lockdown. It's in the strictest sense one household household can only allow one person to go out once a day to purchase all the necessities unlike in europe. Or in the us where you have the luxury to go out and to do a lot of chores. In china it's really strict on areas. That are most affected by the pandemic. You're not even allowed to go all. There's a community officer who is on standby just to send all the necessities to you to your door. So this is the contact where talking about when we want to understand kovic impact on china this is also the circumstance under which a lot of the business have to operate for three months from late january to april. So this is something i want to want. Everyone who's listening in to bear in mind to keep it in the back of head on back of a mind to understand the corvettes impact. So i upon. I'm going to talk about cova impact on china's wine imports. So what happened to win. By the end of january china had locked down the whole country as a result restaurants hotels essentially closed and miss the most important chinese new year sales for anyone wondering how big and how important is chinese new year for a lot of wind merge and a lot of the a lot of them who i talked to told me chinese new year wine sales account for roughly twenty percent or even up to thirty percents of their i knew sales so imagine seven day period was lots okay and then imagine. That period was attended for three months. That's the challenge facing a lot of the importers in china and of course logistics were delayed because quickly the pandemic spread from china to the rest of the world Even when china in may and june recovered from the pandemic countries are like ryan's italy and you were in the depth of the pandemic dot affected global logistics while because we have the latest figures from china customs at a showed import volume declined by thirty percent. Thirty point eight percent to three hundred forty seven million leaders in poor value declined roughly thirty percent as well to u. s. one point eight four billion. This is quite significant. Because i want to joe attention to the fact that last year china's one import value already declined. We saw roughly ten percent job in volume terms and one percent in value terms because of the economic slowdown and trade war between china and was so the downturn. We are saying this year is a continuation of what happened last year as well. So that's you know might have a projection for what is to expect on what's to calm right okay. So next one. I am going to talk about because of the job in wine. Imports and how it affected merchants consumers and the price points are was sane on the shelves merchants of course when you have stalks that are meant to be depleted for chinese new year. That a stew setting in the warehouse. What you do when you have uncertainties facing forward you'll become a more cautious your becoming more cautious with your spending what to buy how to budget. That's natural response. A market exit suddenly. We're seeing a lot of merchants exiting the market. Unfortunately one of the examples with sane is from jovial. Many of you guys familiar with jovial so basically joe view is a wine and agricultural importing company backed by the tech giant nenova. Five years ago when it entered the market to stop two important should be winds. It costs a lot of fanfare and naturally they had the peak around twenty key bruns. Included a the biggest Organic winery madonna in in chile. And also jong here moe's fabulous wines earlier this year due to the pandemic it's general manager said they're suspending the wine business. This is not a small one time importer. we're looking at a company. Dots actually has the scale. That's the direct impact of the pandemic. I'm coffee cards. Of course a lot of wineries and importers were having zero sales in february in particular consumers when you have job uncertainty because of the pandemic what are you gonna do. You're becoming more cautious with. You're spending your accounting or the non essential standings unfortunate wine is counted as numb- essential on like you know maybe in france or italy or in the us consumers of course they're trading down if they are buying winds at all. They are really budgeting what to buy. You know what is the best value. What is the most affordable wine outing the market this can be reaffirmed by the expert on expert data we just from burgundy from january to september export volume to china shop to by roughly thirty percent and in value terms jumped by roughly around twenty percent and we see some increases in areas where Or shop elise. Those kind of increases assertion guan crew premier cru in terms of red and whites that Racing price-wise wines priced under one. Hundred orrin be is the most popular category one hundred. That's about fifteen dollars. So what happened to on trade and why on trade matters like any other. Why importers in in the war in europe or in the us traditional ones heavily dependent on trade on restaurants and bars and hotels to win. The pandemic happened especially in china. Were the strictness of the lockdown is so severe on so carefully scrutinized at enforced restaurants bars were treated during the pandemic on china. We're talking about country that has ten million restaurants chinese new year. Like i said completely shot during the seven day. National holiday dining sector alone lost five hundred billion. That's seventy six billion. Us dollars lockdown. Measure of various strictness were enforced from end of january to april lasting three months. Even in some cases restaurants were allowed to open. Are you can only do delivery service delivery service it go to. It's a growth factor at a hall make makeup for what's lost from in dining services and heidi loud. That's another biggest restaurant chain. China lost to five billion to stirring saint periods just to give you an idea of the severity of on-trade unfortunately among all the alcoholic beverage categories. Wine was hit the hottest. This is not said by me. This is actually coming from one zooming secretary general of china alcoholic drinks association which is the official drinks association in china. That's regulate Anything related to alcohol in china. It's very powerful organ and he basically said homecoming function for wine was essentially non existent as heavily relies on social consumptions such as restaurants to the decline with shoppers. A wong stall too short before giving any thinkers on the decline. But we can guess it's melted doubled. It's not a single digit

I get to be focused on which keeps the days different every single one and also keeps it so that i never get bored. Doing one thing like you said i mean. You've had a lot to your plate here with this new role. Previously mentioned you oversaw cadillac. And now. you've got corvette racing under your umbrella as well general question like how many people would you say you over at the company. I know you work with teams. So i guess it's probably different than if you were like a team manager but like in your role as a as a program manager that works with several sports teams. How many people would you say. You're you're looking here that's a. That's a good question If you count the teams is being part of the family. Which very much do even though. I'm not gonna go tell a mechanic what to do. That's not my job. But you know i wanna make sure that i look out for all them. Each team is at least you know what the rolex bring more people but twenty thirty people depending and then. What is this year at the rolex we have nine cars three camaros for lax and two corvettes. So i guess if you add it all up it's quite a few people especially with delara and ecr and then our engine team at gm included in there But like i said i. I don't really directly manage you. Know what the teams do in terms of telling the mechanics how to put the wheel on or anything along those lines. It's more so just giving them the connection. And then i control the purse strings for a lot of it especially the corvette program so you know ultimately it's like one of those love hate relationships. We have to work together to each. Get what we need

Ravens Measure Up to Great Apes on Intelligence

"Ravens are known for their exceptional intelligence. In fact there are sometimes referred to as flying primates. We knew they are very smart but nobody ever really tested this using a big and comprehensive test battery which also then really enabled us to say is the Performance similar to those of great apes or not simona. Pika is a cognitive scientist at the university of osnabruck in germany. She and her colleagues wanted to see how ravens would measure up primates across a wide array of tasks so they subjected eight ravens. To something called the primate cognition test battery. It's a series of thirty three different tasks. Designed to assess various aspects of intelligence among primates. For example one test is a game of cups. You may have seen it affair. He put an object under one of three cups. Move the cups around. And then guess which cup. The objects under other tasks tested the ravens ability to determine cause and effect or to understand different quantities. Peanuts were popular test item to keep the birds motivated overall. The researchers found that four month old ravens which you might think of as teenage ravens did just as well on most tasks as adult chimps and orangutans except on tests of spatial skills. Net was a little bit surprising for us but we use attests better. Which was designed to test primate cognition and these tasks which may make sense for human children may be great apes right now. We use this for a species which is very different. They are flying. they have speaks they. Communicate was a beacon. That don't have hands whatever so i would say. Yeah that may be the past. We used to test. The spatial skills could be improved. The results appear in the journal. Scientific reports kaley swift behavioral ecologist. Who studies crows and other corvettes at the university of washington. She says she was impressed by the results. In how comprehensive the tests were but says it can be hard to assess intelligence by comparing across species. I'd like to see a sort of shift in our language from comparing ravens to primates like calling them flying primates to rethinking like how we scale animals and not putting them on such a linear scale. Right we're like wow birds are smart as apes. It's amazing who would have thought it's like well. There's just a bunch of different release meeting all day. Their natural history informs different aspects of their physical and social cognition in like. It's much less linear than the narrative. We often tell. Intelligence she says is much more complex and variable and we think think.

"Once again. Alex bowman welcome back to the program. Yeah thanks for having me all right over your shoulder here. It smelling pretty good. It's it's looking pretty good You got in and out burger there for lunch yet. Not for me for the guys. Yeah my my trainer would kill me. he doesn't know that i had a double double animal style fries and a chocolate shake yesterday when i landed. So we're just not going to tell them that but but today since odds are he's going to walk in here Not gonna eat that. Well you know this is broadcast and online and so he might find out some other way. Yeah we'll just we'll just send it and hope hope he doesn't all right. I noticed that they tony. You had like an all white fire suit. How do you keep that thing clean. You don't yeah that was That's tough valvoline. paint scheme. looks so good firesuits. Look really good I think all white looks really good. It's just so hard to keep playing I think they have a couple of primaries this year so only got to make them last a couple of races but It is tough there destroyed after one race They wanted me to do that for chili bowl. And i said no way Cj who drives my car he he got an all white suit for chile will and it was destroyed after after practice. Pretty much so It is as tough for sure. The first thing. I thought of as that would not work in the days of thunder days. No for sure stuff used to get the pair used to move through the cars. So much more i mean. The cars were cooler inside because of it. Actually but i mean those guys would get so dirty back in the day. I just because there was so much more moving air and everything was sealed up how it is now. But now they're like They're sealed up pretty tight. Except for when i went through the grass i had grass everywhere so That firesuits probably half green at this point. But that's all right. Put mountain dew on that part of it. Yeah yeah if if they wanted to be on eighty eight car for sure. We're halfway there. You did a panting of matt benedetto. I saw it online. You can't get away from it but props to him. He kept the interview going yeah. He's not a very shy human being so it's one of those things we mess with each other. A lot and i did not continue the interview. I was very distracted by it. What happened and what was going on. So that was my way of getting him back so i'm really not looking forward to what comes next knowing him but i'm sure it'll be something i was gonna ask you. Expect retaliation probably It's fun to make fun of matt. you know. He drives for that other manufacturer. But he's still just went and bought a another corvette so We know he's at least got good taste and yeah he's he he just bought another is the are one. But you know. I saw the other day. And you know how corvettes have four taillights he. He had somebody take the tail lights out to like put tent on them. And like put different spoiler on the car. And they didn't tighten the bolts out one of the bolts up and one of the tail lights fell out going down the road. So that's embarrassment. He's got good taste in cars but yeah it's a little bit nursing. What what are you driving personally. No one of those. Yeah so he's actually copying me. He's got the same cars me now. He's he was going to buy the same wheels that i had on my car so i just sold him my wheels about something different. So we weren't matching but yeah you should go ask him about it because it's literally he's copying me. That's that's definitely interesting. Go out there and race. Yeah mine still going to be mine. Still gonna be faster though. So i mean it's obviously got the better driver so it's all driver of course nothing under the hood for sure now. Last time we spoke you were still working out the intricacies of assigned seating at movie theaters. Is there anything else technology wiser in two thousand twenty. That's baffling you I don't think there's been anything yet. I'm sure. I'm sure there will be that movie. Theater incident was largely embarrassing. Pretty sure i'm never going on a date ever again. After that that was that was a struggle But yeah nothing yet. I feel like something will definitely pop up and confuse the heck out of me and all embarrassed myself with it but nothing yet. Truth be told seventeen years. I've been doing this. This is the first time using my phone for notes. I used to use paper mainly because it was lighter. So i'm still getting into the tech stuff too. Yeah yeah there you go. I mean yeah. It's forever changing. Who would think that you have assigned seats at a movie theater. That there's twelve people and it just didn't make any sense. If i were just gone gone up one more row. Adam and just fine definitely definitely definitely all right so you got a bunch of sponsorships onboard this year. How do you keep track of them. All highest kelsey. What's on the car this week Yeah figure out what shirts to bring. And and i mean it's it's written on my chest on the firesuits so i guess i could just look down and figure it out but no it's it's been really cool to have some new partners on board obviously We have this week and chevy goods dot com and everybody. That's going to be out for the rest of the year. Really excited about all that so It'll be neat. I think the black and gold car looks really cool so looking forward to seeing that on the race track. Lamar looks good to its new paint scheme for them so it only looks a little bit similar to the valvoline paint scheme. Just a little bit. But but that's all right. That's that's that's a good luck to you once you're inside it kind of looks the same right. Yeah yeah you can't see it from From where i sit. So i'm here for it. Do you ever bring the wrong stuff to the track. Not recently so when i was driving for junior motorsports We had a couple of different sponsors on the car throughout the year. We went somewhere in. Dave ellen's was the crew chief and really all the sponsors were the same color scheme but he wore the wrong shirt like the race day shirt. He warned completely wrong. One week kelsey did my pr over there. as well. and i thought she was gonna kill him so It was it was a good day for sure with sports. Exploding ni- racing and that's something that you're interested in and doing. Yeah william started his own team starts. I started calling him. Mr be since he's got this big time. I racing team but I wanna talk to him next time. I'm gonna ask him well. How does that work. I mean nothing physical yeah he. He's spent some money on it so I don't know. That's i keep myself really busy with other things and i'm kinda maxed out at the moment. I think it's really neat. I play on. Ira seeing a little bit more to to play around and then taking that super seriously. Is it something you see yourself doing. After nascar maybe retiring you're eighty years old. You're sitting in your living room and you're still raising all that's gonna be so different when i'm eighty years old. Can you imagine what sim racing is going to become at that point Maybe i don't know all probably be at a dirt track somewhere though

"Credit cards episodes. Yeah really is I just I just I feel like the power is not there. Yeah well look at the Law Ferrari McLaren McLaren m one or something and those habit that true but just just leave for that price point electrified and car. And keep you that performance I would mandate a higher. I can't help it's just it's just like the Instinctual response to like Kinda screw face up and go now. What are they doing because has had the same thought when they talk about electrifying The Mustang were any other performance car that I've known from the past that you know like like what are they. What are they gonNA do? Because every time I'll put it real simple just anything with batteries in it has always let me down every time and I don't anticipate any different with with cars right. Screw everything has let me down. I mean your phone radio controlled toys a remote controls electric cars Remote controls in your for your television. You're right watch battery INS STUPID LAPTOP Right now. Yeah well we're recording a matter of fact but every time anything relies on battery power is always let me down through my whole life and I feel like maybe. That's something something that you know I i. There's just something that That prevents me from fully trusting that as a viable technology. I know that the there's a lot of research and and of course billions of dollars spent to To prove me otherwise you know that. It's it's working working but I just get that gut reaction and and to say that you're going to create a hybrid electric Corvette I don't know I just is to have a hard time with that. I'll I'll I'll ease into it macy. Yeah I'll have to again. This is another full show. We can talk about if performance and hybrid hybrid. electrics if you want to. We can but for sure. We're going to have another show about MID engine design cars. Because as you said Ben we do need to do an update on it. There's a lot more out there available now. We hadn't not that we had a limited supply to talk about before but now they're even more than we can discuss With that you heard it here first. GM The If you do decide to lend some corvettes to Scott hurt myself make sure you don't give Scott and electric because it doesn't sound like he's going to have it begging a bit. Dr One corvettes. I've been I've been on this camping. I've I've I've I've this is the honest truth since last summer. I've been asking my wife if I can make a large you know significant withdrawal from our savings. In order to buy one of these cars I would buy one of these cars brand new. This is brand new car jacked about this car. This car is is amazing. Amazing I really. I really am excited about at the beginning of the show. I'm excited full circle. Really M Twenty Twenty Corvette and you you know maybe that will fade a little bit here in the near future but man I just. It's such a cool vehicle it really is also even though I know. It's not the same thing. Think about how much the price on on a c seven is GonNa drop by twenty twenty one. How Ya and I love those too? You know what I mean. Yeah Yeah I think it's it's a fantastic design and You know okay. Let's we can't keep adding more but I would. I would like to know this from from you and from our listeners Maybe this is the final question I don't know but What's your gut feeling on this to? Every time they release a new corvette I feel like the it immediately dates the previous version of corvette like the when they release the C seven. The see slicks looked pretty old to me And and all the way going all the way back and there are other models that you know I don't know he's still look like they're they're not great. I if some that I would still cherish power to get one of course but There's a few years in there that I just don't really like personally But what do you think about the c seven corvette but now that you've seen the C eight like would you go back and buy a c seven knowing that you could get associated with the you know dramatically different appearance and it does look like it's the old corvette orphan now right even though still a task car looks beautiful in my opinion. Yeah I don't know I just looking at it. I was thinking. How quickly does this date eight everything else before it and it wasn't around that long see seven is around for a very short amount of time just a few years? I don't think we may be dated. But I I don't think I would feel bad about it because it's already It's already such a great vehicle. For what what it does the a a I. Don't you think it holds up. I think it holds all say that I think it holds up now. Also consider that you know if if you take care of those cars in in a few years time depending on how hard you ride them You'll end up with legitimately classic car. That's the thing that kills me. You know like with the last time I mentioned the Monte Carlo on air for a while then I was in those conversations with myself where I thought you know I just just got to keep it running. Keep it going until Until I can get till I can get the the old school license plate that means. I don't have to do a missions anymore. Golden and then you realize it's still several years still a while away. So I'm I'm yeah. Yeah well you can get rid of a c seven just because see is out. Yeah but no. I wouldn't say you get rid of it. I mean when you see it on the road. Now you're gonNA think well that's the old corvette I'll I'm waiting to see the new one bill so impressed though into the seven still beautiful car to me. Yeah yeah and I can't believe you're GONNA buy a C eight. Let's not spread a rumor here but I'm but I. Oh man if I if I just had that that extra cash laying around you know if I did I think that at this moment that would be the one that get should our Powell and fearlessly or Scott Benjamin purchase a twenty twenty corvette.

"I I think there's a like a third party service where you can say okay. I want a performance car high-end luxury vehicle of some sort and I only learned that people are doing this because I talked to a guy who really really did by God he did it. That crazy son of a gun. He put down his order. Are For one of those cyber trucks. One of the Tesla. Cyber trucks kidding yeah. That's an face I may dude. Are you serious. Which one are you gonNA get?

That's a lot of confidence. He is in. Your insurance premiums are going to be for something like that or like offering a service like this. No no people do it with boats a lot. Yeah sure you own a fleet of boats or cars or just one. Yeah Yeah an interesting idea. I mean it's definitely a way to support support your growing corvette habit. You know I feel like You know we're we're nearing the end here. There's there's just there's a lot to talk about with this new corvette a lot of it is is just really kind of gut feeling stuff opinions and you know because right now we haven't really got any kind of concrete V.. Look at or get hands on with right now. We're not one of those Automotive magazines that you know the hand the keys over to and allow them to drive around for a week. It would be great if they did wouldn't it but but we're not those guys yet soil. I been doing this like eleven years right. Yeah another another eleven fifteen more years whatever and maybe it will be one one thing though. I do have to add the rumors about a possible. Hybrid plug in or electric model. Continue to this day and people are getting a little will answer you about it on January eighth so literally yesterday as we record this. There was a little bit of excitement because a stingray was spied testing with a cable hanging out the hood so people freaked out and they thought how they're secretly testing the electric one but Chevy reached back out and said it was a very early test mule for the twenty twenty and that the orange cable they saw together Gal Front Hood was actually A way to ease access to the twelve volt battery now. Okay so it's like yeah it's not Super Ver- we're not super advanced and being top secret about it is. This is how we jump the cars an extension cable from Home Depot. Right exactly I was GONNA GONNA guess. Okay this is Detroit right the likely that we're seeing this This car right right and driving around. 'cause that's where the test all these things and they get to see all this stuff right early we wait earlier than us. But it's probably probably camouflaged and I was thinking all right that's somebody who just got in and accidentally shut you know their phone charge record in the door. Yeah and everybody's like Oh that's the electric version but that was an orange courts to guy the hood. That would be something that would draw attention. I would guess the interesting though. I wonder you know. Be funny if it was like bands. Detroit January's that's a block heater. The big diesel. Like they can't park it inside at GM right yet. They're straight out of garage space. have any space at all so yeah I think the reason. These rumors are gaining so much power and so many people have so have their eyes on it is because after the car was debuted back in in July. Two Thousand Nineteen Someone on the corvette team said Hey. We might electric we might try to electrify To doubt some sort of electrification of this vehicle at some point. But that's all they said where I would slap them knock it off. Ah No. I wouldn't have done that but But Oh man this is as a.

"You know 'cause you WANNA chat with GM about the new corvette. I said why not. I've got some questions. I'll just do this. Yes go on there and I you know of course Yes I had to pretend that I'm really interested in buying one of these and so that I could get some realistic answers right and I said you know I'm really interested in the new corporate which I am a lot of this. This is not made up. I guess the fact that I was WANNA buy one I I do WANNA buy one. I don't know if I will right but but I pretended to be a an interested party. The and I talked to someone on the other end Chad. With someone named Kerry now who knows carries a real person or not but robot but the answers were very real. So I'll I'll leave even with that very human answers but I said that I'm interested in the two thousand twenty corvette and the In the production schedule when their plan to begin production. Because I'd heard that the same thing is you that the strike had pushed production back the UAW strike. Yeah it was. It was like the longest strike in fifty years or something like that. It was a long strike ended finally only the end of October of last year and really it really bumped back. Production is brand new vehicle which is something. GM didn't need at this time. Of course in fact I'll tell tell you this right now. I found a number about this strike. It said that You know due to the The extent of it how long this lasted. GM as a company lost two billion in dollars in production during that strike. And you might think well okay. The the workers really show them. Who's boss you know? They got everything they wanted. Well it turns out. They didn't necessarily come out much much. Better either They've got a couple of benefits. I guess this whole thing. They didn't exactly win. It wasn't a big win. They also ended up losing a billion dollars in wages during during that time. So kind of a a lose lose for both parties involved but I think they were just happy when it was over. I know fortunate timing as well so I so I asked when you know when does is this When is this corvette production scheduled to begin because I thought it was January? But it looks like it's going to begin in February or mid February and I think they're starting to begin. Maybe early Lisa could also be pushed back to early second quarter so it could go the latest that And they said that startup from that time all the way till then you'll see the cars on dealer. Lots is going to be approximately six to eight weeks but you know. Of course that time can vary and they're going to launch. I think with the coupe and then they're going to begin the convertible production and just after that. So it's going to be a little while before you see them on dealer lots because I've been really anxious to go and check one out on a dealer Dealer property just to go see one. I know that can can be a little awkward for some people to go into a dealer and you know have to kind of play the game you know act interested or you know they might know that you're just there to kick the tires but yeah it's fun either way. I I like doing that and I did get a couple of answers to. I was looking for specific information if they were gonNA continue some of the The trends of the past some of the things that they had done at the Bowling Green Assembly plant in Kentucky where they alighted commended ticket factory. Tour Watch your car your specific car being built and you'll final assembly and then you get to drive it away that kind of thing photo op all that it and They said that that unfortunately right now and I think this might be because of the strike. They are not going to allow that at least for the foreseeable future they might change. Is that in the near future but as of right now know factory tours no factory assembly experience. You know you can't go help build the engine or any of that stuff couldn't have passed so so models so is kind of interesting to get to talk to the corvette concierge for a bit and and get the straight scoop on things and IT'S A. It's a great tool to use if you ever WanNa to do something like that for any vehicle. There's plenty of answers out there for everyone. Did you go into an eat. Nuts and bolts under the hood. Stuff I did. Not and that's that's what I think you're probably probably GONNA be able to To shine some light on here because I don't have a whole lot of facts and figures on this other than just the standard quick stuff like the stuff that everybody reads in the You know the first three or four bullet points of the story right right stuff. Like of course it's zero to sixty two point eight who fast. That's what I think. That's one of the the most important stats that people want to feel like it is. That's a that's so quick. I mean that's A. This is a big car. It's it's long low and wide and the big vehicle two two point eight seconds that's it's GonNa feel awful fast like like rocket sled fast and a lot of the So there are three there are three different iterations as you can get different builds that they have listed and one thing that I thought was interesting. Was that the the initial official. Build the one lt or that you know the lower end the emphasis really From Chevy side is on how light that that vehicle is like it. They know that there is a huge demographic of people who corvette fans who are probably probably leaving grew up around them and then later bought their own. We're very excited about this. But they're excited for the old school kind of corvette which was relatively elite few frills and it was about being able to drive like a bat out of heck. Since we're a family show was interesting about the zero to sixty number is that it's I mean. I don't think it was the base model. Maybe sports package or something not like a z are one or anything. It's fairly entry level car. You up this now. We're GONNA go through some of the The upgrades and you know what you can do. The pricing and all that and just a minute but it went one-step there's something called the Z fifty one package and that is the performance package. It costs a lot more We'll talk about what gets you. I guess in the end. But here's the other the thing you said there are three versions of this right so you get to the top version. There's the one one t right. Yeah the LT stingray TRIMs. Lt One lt too. I mistakenly had them transposed. But yes so there's trim options but then there's the Lt three also right. Yeah which gives you even more of the same. I'm really the engine stays the same. The engine stays the same and they're a that higher package. The higher trim package. It's more on an AH oddly enough. Of course everything from the first two package bills but then it. It has this emphasis on making the interior of the corvette nicer. Her which aren't the corvettes traditionally aren't they known for not having the best interior not. Yeah yes and no. I think I've really tried improve that in the past right. I mean. I'm sure it's like that you feel like there's a lot of older buyers to this vehicle because it's going to get in price. It's going to be a lot of people they're the older. They're gonNA want a few more comforts. It's going to be you know something but but at the same time they want that you know that killer performance and and why I got kind of animated over here when you started talking about this is because you're talking about how it's late weight and it's sort of a no frills version if you go with the base version that they were thrown out there for what fifty nine nine ninety five sixty right comparatively inexpensive and you're talking about a hundred thousand two hundred thousand dollars variance variance. When you compare it against what would it can compete against? But when you go from the The Lt one to the Lt three is what I found really remarkable. You're talking talking about just a fraction of a second difference in zero to sixty time in fact the performance package when you start adding spoilers in some of the other accessories. Yeah it's a tiny bit slower than the base version of the same vehicle that you pay less for but you get all the appearance packages all the benefits of like cooling and breaking and all that other stuff that will will talk about but And then you go up to the Lt Three. Think between Lt one and lt three you're talking about just again like a tenth of a second from zero to sixty faster for you know the top version versus the lowest version which is not going to be really felt a whole lot autumn. And we are talking about two point eight seconds as quick But they have the exact same quarter mile speed. So it's not like you're really gaining any top speed or anything like that so if you're going to just just purely purely for speed in this car and you don't really care about You don't care about the handling characteristics of it because that's added later with sure you know performance Liuhua will talk about them there. There's a really interesting Chassis work on here too but if you just want a flat out fast car for the price of their offering which not a lot of people are going to buy. You can still get that for that for that base price it can is something that's definitely accessible. Which I thought was pretty exciting? You know for sure not very often that you know the performances match match so closely between the low the low end vehicle and the top envy. That's a good point you know and I think it's it's also pretty. Well thought out the way that the you can tell Chevy was Chevy probably spent some intense research time figuring out which customers would want. What because I I think? Maybe I'm a little more optimistic. I think there's a ton of people out there who will say a car like this for sixty grand. You know what I mean and true. Maybe some of those people will say well. The kids are finally away at college right. And now I've got a little more time and A little more capital play around with you know so I I can see so many kitchen kitchen table. Conversations were some family is like all right. kids are gone. Or maybe I just retired and years ago you. You promised that I could get whatever car wanted after that. You know what I mean like I I could see that happening for sure and you know sixty thousand might be kind of your upper limit to you. Might've if we don't want it to sedan it was going to be fifty five thousand anyway or fifty thousand and This is a bump up sure and it's a sports car versus sedan. That kind of thing you know I mean. There's a lot of considerations iterations to to to make some concessions to make as well sure I if you're moving to a sports car from you know a family vehicle but Still you're right. It could be a very exciting move for somebody for a relatively low injury price. That gets you right in the In the performance bracket with other supercars so as as I said earlier you know now this is something remarkable vehicle really. I mean when you when you really if you go online. You really look at what they've included in this package included in this deal and the the the The redesign has been done because every single part of this car has been gone over. It's all new and they've got some this is like a is gotta be a marketing thing. They say there's there's one carryover part from the previous model Milo Corvette no one knows what the one part is and I feel like it's just one of those things that you know is meant to garner attention. Listen you know. There's just something that people love to say and I to me. This is an all new car really. That doesn't make it a bad thing. I I saw the same thing. You're talking about with the one component being carried over but I also wasn't able to nail down what it was exactly no. I don't think anyone ever will probably unless you know someone leaks at the top and maybe that'll be you know later like oh it's this emblem are whatever it has this lug nut it's the carpet carpet's carpet really. It really does though. Doesn't it feel lake. There was some meeting where there was a brilliant engineer describing this and they said one that one throwaway line and then somebody in their sales or marketing was like like I remember that one sentence and someone said Oh really what. Specific component wasn't and they're laying digest. Remember that part of the sentence. It's right I can't tell you tell people full of it. Yeah but yes so. It's it is true and I think for that reason. You know motor trend. Does the research search. I know that they're not perfect. But I think that affordability to get into that supercar kind of bracket I think that is one of the primary factors factors making this the motor trend car of the year. They've had some weird choices in the past and then sometimes they've chosen things because of what they see he is the the future potential of it instead of what it's actually done. So like the Tesla Model S for instance was the twenty thirteen car of the year. Right and Tesla again has no shortage of criticism right turn and honestly rightly so in some degrees but I see the logic of motor. Your trend's going toward this. Honestly I spent some time looking at one..

"Kinda reminds me of the spirit behind hind the original in the way that it wanted to be kind of like this new thing this innovative thing than other companies looked at and said WHOA. We WanNA WE WANNA make car like that. This particular car may start a trend with companies looking to make kind of a low cost supercar or at least a lot of new people can get in to kind of a neat concept low cost. He just said it. That's one of the key points here that we talk about today and I. I don't know if we want to jump into this right now. Our maybe we can wait you you tell me and we can do later. Low cost doesn't mean lacking in features and performance and design standards. And all that. I mean. That's a great looking car. Yeah I would also say low. Cost is a comparative statement. True you know what I every time. A new used. Whatever right I feel? You have to Categorize that even if you're talking about buying a new pair of socks or something so we're provoke notoriously cheap with stuff like that right so what about What about this? What if we talk a little bit about the before before we get to the price before you get to brass tacks Would if we talk a little bit about just some of the specs A little bit about how this came out because one thing listeners I need to know And people who already preordered a corvette very well aware of this Production on the vehicle actually got pushed back to January. Very right the a little bit later. Maybe a little bit of insight Info Joe Garnered yesterday. I can tell you about you. Want to tell you about right now. WH- yeah I went online and went to corvette Because it'd be Chevy DOT COM OR CORVETTE DOT COM but I ended up chatting with the Corvettes person on the other end..

"I now as long as everybody else is out there. We're good right yet. And I I don't know about you guys guys but it feels like we're on a pretty good mood today. We spent We spend a few minutes just shooting the breeze about today's episode. Before we eventually league said I think Kurt had to get us in line and say hey guys maybe we should just record it. I'll just do this show so this is a I've got. Ah Got an announcement before we get started. WHO's thing all right all right? I don't know how you guys are going to take this. But I for years. I've been driving one interational of a Monte Carlo or another and all of all of our longtime listeners you guys have been with you guys have heard my trials and travails with that with that car and you know what it's like when you own a car for a long time and you know it's idiosyncrasies you get used to not having a car payment which is beautiful And eventually I had to give up the ghost man. I still have my Monte Carlo. But a new car. Yeah all right. Well Yeah it's three ninety nine money. No I got a twenty-seven four escape. 'cause I got a great deal on seventeen four. Okay okay. Very good news car. I've ever driven and I'm actually taking possession of it like all. The deals stuff is taking possession of it tomorrow as we're recording. Congratulations -gratulations well. Let's let's hope. It's I still have the Monte Carlo. Though it's you know I won't be able to sell it for anything I understand. Maybe your data take it. He takes he takes on projects. Like this right. Yeah maybe maybe he will. Well I you know I'm I'm just a couple questions if you don't mind we have to jump into shoe topic. Yeah couple all right. So how did he find. Is that something you're buying from a dealer you buy it from a friend you buy from craigslist. What a I'm buying a used With I I found it with the help of a A third party but the the purchase itself is directing. So I've checked out the car and I literally tomorrow all I'm doing is like taking possession of it. Well color is black black. Okay black on the outside. And it's you that's another thing with the cars as little worry gain 2017 model because the color is kind of the last thing I care about. Yeah engine that works. Louis says this has sixty K.. On it but I got a good deal and I was just very happy that I didn't get stuck with you. Know like a cornflower yellow or would you. They've all these fancy car paint names like you know absent minded vermillion or whatever. I don't get it but yeah I got just a regular a black Ford escape because they gotta do some hauling road trips ahead of me and so I I wanted to get Just a little beater pickup truck but like we talked about before. We're talking about the ranger. It's tough to get the the kind of pick-up truck would want you know. No disrespect to an F.. One fifty but I don't needs something like that little manual transmission do Cedar Parking Lot which is very difficult. The nothing funny I I mean I don't know why as to color I mean. That's the last thing that you should be concerned with probably just like a prank you in the parking lot if I see right do something this thinking because I actually went through some of the old research that we had done on the the INS and outs of buying a car. What you should know and what you should avoid what you should look for Cetera Hell yeah well. In a lot of people here in the audience today have war stories and one of the things that we had said in the past. The I think maybe some people weren't on board with was that I like you know know about you will see if you're on board with us. I am very much against Buying a brand new car. Oh Yeah I just. It's just not for me. I know it's for some people but it's not for me on what about you Kurt. I'm not completely against it. Really all right so you buy a new car and it's GonNa last you for maybe four or five years. I mean depending on how much you drive but years trouble-free maybe more Miki at two hundred thousand miles on pretty much any any car nowadays I'm not totally against it. So you see some security in it if you get used to make car payment every month. It's not too that's the one thing that's the one thing 'cause I did get it like through third parties so I do have a car note again. Yeah it's just it's tough to stomach but oh you know what you've got that reliability you've got You know the the the solid feel again of a car underneath you because I know what it's like to go from an older vehicle to newer vehicle and I'm I'm back to the position now by the way where mind is feeling older you know. It's a little more sloppy. It's not quite as it was. Yeah it's just tough to explain unless you're in the seat experience in it but a new car just has that correct feeling right feeling to it and something new to you I mean going from what year Two Thousand Four. Yeah Yeah Two Actually two thousand Two thousand six hundred sixty one thousand six hundred twenty seventeen almost ten years with many many miles on it. I'm sure it's probably just the more solid feeling vehicle underneath you. It's going to be nice. I'm excited about hearing about whatever you intend to do with this. You know honestly guys the fact that it might start it every time that I wanted to start flowing me away. You know but I I bring this up. I bring this up. I know there's a very long tangent but he bring this up because it had me thinking about new cars and you know how it is whenever you're going to buy an automobile I can't speak for everyone but for me. A good seventy percent of my time overall is just window shopping through one format or another and that seventy percent I I would say easily. Twenty to thirty percent of that is me taken deep dives into cars that I will probably never buy you know like I. I one time saw a ninety indy. Three Rolls Royce that had an ungodly number of miles and was just like barely affordable to the point where I thought maybe it was an estate sale from like a a criminal in the Atlanta area or something because it was not a vehicle. It's been rough but one of the things that the the three of us have been talking about for a little while now off air in different conversations is the idea of getting the classic car you know what I mean. And so that's why today's episode is about the Chevy Corvette. Oh yes that's the car. We've talked about a few times in the past. Of course I have to bring this up and you know I think we've talked about corvettes and many many times so I'll just leave it at this. We would. You say we're veterans. I would see all Aww Shit. Okay all right. We've talked about for sure in full episodes. I know we've talked about the Remember the old. Vh One corvette giveaway that they did. Oh yeah on. Ed discovered them years later after an artist's own them in and left them abandoned in a parking lot. You know he painted some of them as a travis. It was really a mess. I think I I think there's some work underway to restore that full collection now but anyways it was like thirty six corvettes that were given to one winner back in one thousand nine hundred nine. If you have interest in that you know check out the car stuff archives. The other one that I know for sure we did about corvette was the The switch over to to the C seven model which is the twenty four team model. These between fourteen model year we did in twenty thirteen You know just ahead of time and And that's kind of something similar to what we're doing now only Now we're going to be talking about a completely completely different animal right. This is something that people have been been talking about really. I mean if you want to really get down to it here. I guess people have been talking about this for fifty one years. Here's finally finally people are getting. You know the corvette not everybody but some people are getting the corvettes that they've been asking for that entire time pretty exciting forward with the future right. The Corvette is already the twenty twenty motor trend car of the year. It's we're not done with January. Yeah and what we are. I checked into this. Yeah we're about three visit just bad timing on our part I suppose but I mean this happens right all right as as of the recording of this episode. I know this will change by the time the episode airs but it is in the running It's in the top three for the North American car of the year as well and and corvette has one in the past. You know they've been. I think at least two other years when corvette is one. I believe back near that we talked about it in two thousand fourteen. Twenty Thirteen That one did win North North America. Car of the year So you know. It's not unheard of that. This one might be the car the year by the time this episode airs. But this twenty twenty corvette is really really something to behold. I mean. It's it's to me. I think it was a beautiful car. I I really like it. I mean we can talk about it. You know what we think about it. I suppose if you think it here's or it it It holds two corvettes lasting image. I guess the you know the historic image of the Corvette and what we see corvette I think a lot of people have felt that it so dramatically deviates from that that you know it doesn't hold true for the purest. You know the People WanNa see the long front end In the rear wheel drive of course but you're you're kind of slung way back in the. Yeah in the chassis up seats. You know what I mean. It's it's it's just a different Different looking car all around around. I mean the silhouette is completely different than it was before and I don't think that's a bad thing..
