"If we do several variations of this car, we continue to build halo cars and we can make more money by having all of these options available. I mean, the Mustang lineup now forget Mach-E for a second, but having the EcoBoost and then the GT and then the Mach one and the GT 500, you have all these variations, you know, sort of a small, medium, large and XL version, right? So why not be able to continue to do that with Corvette? Which they've done, right? They've always had the Corvette and the Z06 and the ZR1, at least for some time now. Anyway, it sounds interesting. I like what they're doing. It looks like a phenomenal car at the performance numbers are just bonkers off the chart. We've got to get Alistair back in from Edmonds. He's not in now I just had another baby, so he's got a little boy at home. But they've got this, I think the series is called, I don't know, like U turn or something. And they're like, hey, let's do a performance head to head race, but we're gonna drag race, hit the brakes, make a U turn around the cones and come back. And the first episode was the C 8 Corvette versus the new Cadillac CT 5 black wing. The Cadillac has a manual transmission, the Corvette, I don't think did. The Corvette was like whatever they are four 80 horsepower for something horsepower. And naturally aspirated. And the Cadillac is like 650 horsepower. And they're like, yeah, but the Corvette, you know, it handles better and it pulls one point, I don't know, one G's and the turns, and it's lighter weight. And man, they launched those things. It looked like the Corvette was ahead. They hit that U turn almost at the same time. The Cadillac pole almost the same Jesus that Corvette, and on the way back on the first run, the Cadillac out powered the Corvette, and then on the second one, I think the Corvette one, but just kind of shows you weight, aerodynamics, gearing configuration, it's not just horsepower. We're talking, I don't know, the Cadillac came in a 150, almost 200 pounds or 250, almost 200 horsepower more in that compensated for the weight and stuff. When I was surprised, I would have thought for sure they'd say, hey, let's grab the automatic transmission Cadillac because that's going to be the faster car. But they grabbed the manual transmission, that is the coolest sedan, I have seen in a while. Freaking small. And while the CT four black wing is like a three series and the CT 5 is the larger one, but maybe with the recaro seats and everything, but I am so interested in driving these. I spoke to Cadillac. I think we're going to get on the list to drive one of these. But you know, it's kind of like what you and I were talking about the other day going. This could be the last hurrah for a couple of these vehicles, you know? Go out and maybe the TRX, you know, that you've got the Mach one that I bought, maybe the Corvette Z06, maybe this Cadillac 6 speed manual transmission and turbo engine. Adam brought up a good point. He's like, those CTS-V wagons from a few years ago with the 6 speed manual in the wagon. He's like, those things are bunk or something bring a trailer. You know, maybe the CT 5 with a manual transmission, I know guys are going to be scooping those things up, putting no miles on them in ten years. They're going to pop up on bring a trailer. And they're going to be, you know, they're going to be massive, collectible cars, massively collectible cars. Everybody's a little bigger. Just a little four inches in width and the entire, you know, I guess the question is, do they all come with the recaro seats? Is there more of a sort of a broader shoulder kind of version of the not necessarily the sea that's the frame of the vehicle itself? It's the door. Yeah. If I remember correctly, that's because when they first came out with those fell in love with it, obviously monstrous 6 over 600 horsepower manual tablet that's hearkens back to this CTS-V, the wagon. I'd love to see that again. Yeah, that'd be great if they did a wagon version. That would be kind of funny. I don't know if they'd sell any, but they'd sell. Sell one. That's all I had for the guys to listen to the shell. Basically. All right, let's go ahead and we're going to wrap things up. We're going to give the studio off to the next crew. You guys, thanks for listening. It's car cash show dot com. You can follow me at motivator on social media, social media is Goldberg.

"So the one that I drove this defender 90 had the nice audio system. It had the jump seat in the middle. It seemed fine. I think it was like 62 or 64,000. It wasn't an $85,000 version. It was 60 something thousand. Yeah. So it's an interesting option when you're cross shopping those things. I think the one ten is a little bit more, but I think the four door vehicles. I always had a used car lot looking at a car for a friend. It's a San Francisco. And, you know, they had the Jeep Gladiator, the Ford or Gladiator there, and they're like, this thing's used. It was hardly it was used. But it was like, it's $50,000 for the used price. You know, for a four door Gladiator black. Yeah, but look, you are nowadays. Yeah. Yeah, so I don't think this is outlandish pricing. This is why we're not having the same conversation with the G wagen or something, which I don't know what that starts $90,000 works its way up. And besides, I don't know that I've ever seen one of those things go off road. I think you can use the defender 90 and have a great time going off road. Or if you live in weather, Bill. It's an interesting option. That's why the neighborhood that's why the neighbors got the first one ten minutes. Yeah, see, the one ten I do like, and I'm excited about driving the V8 version. I'd like to see that thing which is sort of a badass, a big power engine in it. All right, before we wrap up, I just got this note. Again, as we're waiting for orders to open on Corvette Z06, because I'm very interested in it. I don't know if I can get one or can afford it. But it sounds like march 24th. March 24th, the order books are going to start to open. I don't know how they're rolling it out. I don't know if there's going to be deal markups. I don't know if you're on the email list if you just get the email saying you can order. But there's going to be no shortage of options for the vehicles for the 2023 Corvette C 8 and the Z06 version. Here's a couple of notes. 14 exterior color options, 11 exterior striping options. 21 interior treatment options. So you will be able to and more. The list goes on and on. There's just going to be so much you're going to be able to do. To the point where you're like, God, I hope I don't see two Z06 is exactly the same because with all these different options. I do kind of like this. This kind of goes back to cars in the 60s and going, hey, you can start to check off all these little boxes. You know, Porsche still does it now, but the thing with Porsche is you go in and you're like, oh, sticker price, you know, the base price is 78,000. And by the time you're done, you're at a $112,000. You can add $30,000 at a heartbeat and just options. But breaks in a turbo upgrade. Yeah. And look, maybe it makes sense for something like Chevrolet keeping the Corvette around using it as a halo car, knowing that the sales numbers are, you know, fairly low. Certainly not Chevy Silverado selling 800,000 trucks. 850,000 trucks, you're going to sell a few thousand Corvettes. How do you make money off the vehicle? Will you offer 97 different options on it and you charge a little bit of money for each one of those things. And then every $65,000. Yeah, every $65,000 Corvette becomes a $90,000 Corvette with profit margin. And you know what, it's something oddly okay with that because it gives us the customer choice. You know, hey, I want to get a base Corvette once been 65 grand, and I'm going to get all the performance that I want out of it. Or I really want to start to personalize it. I'm going to spend 75, 85, $95,000 for the car. So I guess that's kind of the thought process on it. You don't have to have the same one as anybody else. You could do what you want with it. But man, the more I read up on that car and the Z06, I read up on that engine, it seems like a really, really impressive car that it's not going to be able to last very long. Because doing the naturally aspirated flat plane crank, I think is going to be in the Z06 for a year, two years, three years. I don't think it's going to be able to go much longer than that. They've got to do the hybrid version. They got to do more efficient versions. Maybe a ZR1 will come out. That will be a hybrid or the hybrid will be separate in a zero one will be turbo. I don't think they're going to get supercharged versions. They probably already have all of them. Don't kid yourself. They do. So, I mean, what we hear is there's a base C 8 Corvette. There's a Z06 with the naturally aspirated flat plane crank V8. There's going to be a hybrid version of the Corvette that not necessarily meant to be more than the Z06 performance wise, but more than the base C 8. And then possibly a ZR1 version, which would be turbos instead of supercharger, but probably not the flat plane crank V8 version, because they want to make those cars different enough, right? Go, hey, if you want naturally aspirated, you get the cool naturally aspirated engine. If you want turbo, then you get maybe the base C 8 engine, but with turbos, and ultimately more horsepower. I don't know, 750 horsepower. And then I don't know where the hybrid version is going to fall in that performance wise, but I assume you're saying, hey, hybrid now brings in all wheel drive, right? Maybe we've got electric motors on the front, like the NSX. So you got to be a lot more to pull people away. Yeah. That's my fault. And also, if you think of all the different variations of like 9 11 and some of the other cars like that, well, this is Chevrolet's way of going, well, if we do several variations of this car, we continue to build halo cars and we can make more money by having all of these options available..

"Defender. The defender 90. So I drove the Land Rover defender one ten, which is the four door version. That was a little bit of a while ago. I think we got into that. I grabbed the defender 90, the two door version. The shorter wheel base, it's quite a bit shorter. It's about 17 inches. Shorter gives it more Jeep size. We're talking about the Land Rover. I'm driving the Land Rover defender 90. The two door version. They lopped 17 inches out of it and they shorten it up quite a bit. So now it's a little bit more two door Jeep sized two door Bronco size. So if you're into that type of configuration, this is interesting. It's, I believe, the three 95 horsepower V 6. Now, they are going to have a V8 version. I think the V8 version is just in the four door, the defender one ten. I'd love to drive that because I think that engine is still fantastic. A lot of fun. I just drove it in the Jaguar F type SVR as well. The 550 horsepower. I'll tell you this about the defender 90. You've got a really want the short wheel base for the angle of approach and dissent and the shorter wheelbase for off roading. It's very tall. It's very short in length. Maybe it's a less expensive competitor to the G wagen. So knowing what you're buying, if you're getting it for that particular reason and maybe it's off road capability, then I understand it. But as far as livability every day, just kind of driving it, it's a pain in the ass. You can't get into the backseat. It just turns out the utility version part of it is not that great. The four door I understand, people can go in and out of the back. There's room in it. The two door version, you pull up on this handle to flip the seat forward, but then you got to hit the little electric button and you've got to watch that thing slide and it's sitting there going, all right, keep going, keep going, keep going. Keep going. Keep going. Keep going. To get into the back, right? And you're like, well, you can't just jump in and out. You got to sit there and hold the button. It's a little bit tougher. And then when you go around in the back, you open up the back door, the storage area on the back of the SUV is pretty small. And when you fold down the seats, it definitely gives you more room, but there's a brace that goes across. It's about three or four inches tall. So if you wanted to slide something flat, that's not going to happen. It's literally like an aluminum bar on the bottom. So you've got about, I don't know, 18 inches, maybe 20 inches. When you open the door, you see the back of the rear seats, and then below it is like this aluminum bar. This aluminum brace. So if you want that space fine. But if you fold down the seats, that little aluminum bar doesn't go anywhere. So that's a little weird to not be able to fold something flat, but I guess if you're just like throwing backpacks and luggage and things like that, maybe you can use it as some sort of luggage separator. I guess the thought is, if you get the two door, if you get the defender 90 and you fold down the rear seats and you basically just use it as a two seater vehicle, but with more storage in the back. Then it makes a little bit more sense to me. But if you're using it as a four seater, it's a little odd. And then the one I drove, which isn't the fanciest version. It was the first edition, but not with all of the options. And it had this interesting jump seat in the front in the middle. So the front seats can seat three people, if you wanted. Now, I believe there's an option to just get a regular center console, a cup holder's arm rest. But the way this worked was, the middle seat, although narrow, it has a seat belt. It folds down, and then on the back of that seat, you have your arm rest and cup holders. But it sits very high, especially for a guy my size, right? Your arm is up very high, and it takes up a lot of space for a center console. What do you expect? Yeah, yeah. And then when you fold it up because it has to have a head rest on it, you know, sort of an integrated headrest, when it's down in center console mode, it's got this big kind of pad going to the front. It's a little, again, you've really got to know what you're getting this getting into with this thing. I would say. There's a lot of use for it in LA county. I know what I'm saying. For all the mall hoppers out there that are going to cruise around this thing in Beverly Hills. You got to know what you're getting when you get into the inside of this thing and you drive it and you want to use it if you're going to use the back seats or whatever. Now that being said, every time I park this thing, people went up and took pictures of it. It's a cool looking vehicle. And the two door looks badass. Look, you got the new Bronco. You got gauge the new Bronco. We saw the tudors, the two doors look badass, but the two doors less practical than the four, right? So you want to get the four door and if gage is going to go out and drive it and he's got a couple of his buddies or teammates or whatever. The four doors way more practical. Although the two door looks cool. And kind of the same idea with this thing. I like the defender. I think the defender is very cool. I think stylistically, it does a pretty good job of being modern, but also tip the hat at the old to the old defenders. I think the off road capability is pretty cool for this thing. I know a lot of, you know, higher net worth people that are going, oh, I've got a second house, so I'm going to Telluride or I'm in Jackson hole and I want a cool vehicle and a Montana, my second property, and I picked up the defender out there. It's like, yes. Listening to your assessment, I would say that defenders want to have a job replicating what they did in the past. You're right. That's exactly right. They did, yeah. I know. I'm just saying. But there's two dos to them for doing that because they didn't change the concept, you know, a 100%. They kept it as true to history as possible to satiate the people that have those vehicles. My brother is one of them. I loved his two door defender. Yeah. When I drove, and there seemed to be a decent amount of room in that in the back, but it's a specialized vehicle. It's an upscale utilitarian vehicle that's very specialized. You know, your brothers was an older truck. Right, so he's got, he's got that style. Does he have any of the new defenders? I'm not sure. He's a Land Rover guy as far as the four doors concerned, but I remember he had one of the original two doors. Yeah, so I mean, I like the new vehicle. I like the new range rovers. I like the new the new Land Rover, line rover sport. All of those I like. I just think, as I was trying to move stuff around and use the vehicle, it was just a little awkward to me and I was getting a little frustrated. I was like, I would just get the four door. So anyway, that's just kind of my thoughts. Did you drove the four door? I did. I drove the four door, and I did like a rally with it. There was like a super car rally from a bunch of friends and a dealer had, and I was just driving this, so they're like, let's cut the canyons and everybody had like Audi R 8s and stuff. And I was like, I'm gonna do it in a Land Rover. I'm just gonna do it. The defender of one ten. And I remember did you like it? I did like it. I did like it. Now, I had the one ten and I had the fancier version. So that's kind of where you're like, you know, do you get the stripped down version or do you get the fancier version? Look, in the world of Jeep and Bronco and Land Rover defender, it's nice to have those options. And I wouldn't even consider them a small medium and large. You can get a fully equipped Jeep for around 60,000 bucks. And you can get kind of a base Land Rover for 50,000 or something. So the one that I drove this defender 90 had the nice audio system. It had the jump seat.

"The old timer guys like this, but they take the modern vehicles, they tune it, whatever graphics, power the whole thing. And then they slap on a name, like copo Camaro and yenko, and in this case they did a GMC cyclone, right? They brought the cyclone back, the hot little all wheel drive truck. And then they did a modern day version. I don't know that we need to keep bringing back these nameplates and licensing nameplates and like, here's the modern day yenko and here's the, I don't know, it's like, I think we're kind of getting away from there's no lineage. There's no, there's no real tie to it. It's more of just a licensing deal. The story, I don't know, that's it. I get it, it's a money grab, in a sense, and it's like for the guys that have a yenko or a copo Camaro and they want to park the new version next to it. And there are collections. Yeah, listen, tune the car, make the car. Give it a different name and make it your own and start your own legacy. The guys VE, they did GMC cyclone reboot, right? A year ago, they did 50, they produced 50 trucks, 750 horsepower, sports suspension, lowered stance, I believe it was the 5.3 liter V8, had a big supercharger on it. I didn't love it. I didn't love it. It was all wheel drive, that part was on par. It was an extended cab, not a regular cab, which the cyclone was. So the shorter truck would have been more interesting. I don't even know if they make a shorter truck, but it would have been more interesting if they were to turn it into that. And they supercharged it, which I get it. That's the easy way to make the horsepower and there's kits out there, and they're street legal and the whole thing. But the original truck was turbo. The original truck was turbo. So if you're gonna do it and you're gonna call a cyclone, then go through the effort of developing the turbo kit and I guess work with sema or whomever. And. Get it 50 state legal. And make us a turbo all wheel drive truck if you're gonna call it, call it a cyclone. Anyway, so they've got a new truck called the extreme, I think it's extreme off road. So same kind of format, but instead of a sport truck, it's the off road version, it's got the tuned shocks, lifted suspension that are put in their own supercharger on it now. It's 750 horsepower, 600 pound feet of torque. It's a Chevy Colorado, what it's based off of, so if you want the smaller truck, but with the Dodge TRX, ram TRX horsepower and the smaller truck, you can get it from these guys. Now, to their credit, they did step up. Is they have a built engine, they have forged internal CNC ported heads on this upgraded fuel system. They needed to do a lot of work to get this thing to 750 horsepower. So my point is, well, then why didn't you do that on the cyclone? Why didn't you just develop the twin turbo kit and make them cool cyclone? I'm sure they got a lot of people going, hey man, why did you do turbo the thing? It looks like it'd be great. Here's a question. There's a question for you. If they want to bring back what the originals brought to the table. If I remember correctly, all the Yankees were forced me. Yeah, okay. That sounds right. I would be willing to bet that the ones that they replicated are not any of them four speeds. Right. It would be. Because they did their camaros and stuff and yeah, there's no way they would have gone from like a 6 speed manual to a four speed or the ten speed automatic to a four speed automatic. But let's just say manual. Let's say manual period. Yeah. Well, I mean, the manual, the Camaro did have an optional manual, so they might have been able to do the manual transmission. I'm sure they were able to, but I'm just curious to know how many of them they actually made. That is a good question. Yeah, how many got ordered with a manual? This is they want to keep it true to true to history, then there you go. All right, well, SV E, they're taking their Chevy Colorado, the extreme off road, big horsepower, big wheel and tire package, all the good bits. Here's the kicker. If you want it, it's $80,000 over the price of the Chevy Colorado. It's like yeah, it's like, how does he? At least Hennessy names his things his own stuff. So that's good. Exactly. Anyway, it looks kind of cool, but on the same notion, you could go to Lincoln filter and get the ligand filter four 50 horsepower package, which is the supercharger package for a fraction of the price. And have them install it in dino tune it and warranty it and you can do what you want on the rest of the vehicle. If you want the whole thing, turn key, maybe SV, you can pay the 80 grand over the price of the vehicle. But I guess I'm going to go get a bag real quick. It's knocking down knocking down the water, knocking down the water. Let's see, I've been driving, I've been driving the Land Rover defender. The defender 90. So I drove the Land Rover defender one ten, which is the four door version. That was a little bit of a while ago. I think we got into that. I grabbed the defender 90, the two door version. The shorter wheel base, it's quite a bit shorter. It's about 17 inches..

"Something they came back and they said, but we'll give you a credit or like a gift card to use in the aftermarket catalog for the parts of accessories, right? So, you know, it's not all equal, but they're going, hey, you know what? Here's a couple of hundred bucks to spend at the dealer while you're there. You want to outfit your vehicle with something. You're not having to come out of pocket anymore. Yeah, so it's like, you know, you got to wait a little longer. And here's some money. But really long enough. And here's something positive on top of it. That's just a completely different scenario. Well, so rivian came out and said, so Ford with the Bronco, they said, you got to wait a little longer. Here's a gift card. Here's some money. And bend over and let me kick you. Yeah, that's it. Yeah, I mean, bullshit. So first they said, you got to wait longer. And now they said, and we're going to charge you more money. So at least come out. Please come out and open your books and say, this is what it's costing us extra, right? We'll meet you halfway in the middle. We'll pay it's 20%. We'll pay 10% of it. We're asking you, you know, in good faith to me this in the murder. You know what? You are exactly right. At least the optics on that, right? The narrative would have been better. If they said, listen, all the prices for the 2024 vehicles are going to have a 20% hike. For the existing orders, we're going to have to meet you in the middle. We're going to take a little bit of a hit. We've approved this with our board. We know this is going to affect us financially, but we don't want to love your vehicle. The others will have the end. That's right. And then two years from now or whatever. Or. The accessories like gift card, that kind of thing, and if you want to outfit your rivian, I don't know if they have as many aftermarket accessories and their catalog like Ford does. But the gesture means more than anything because the parts in the parts, the aftermarket parts and the Ford steel are Ford gives you, I don't know what $250 gift card, you spend $250 of retail pricing, but they're making the parts or there's a profit margin there. So it was a nice way of them going. We're going to compensate you retail level of 250 bucks. That is real money in your pocket, but for them on the back end, the bean counters are going, okay, but it's going to cost us 30 cents. Yeah, it's going to cost a 30 cents for every dollar we're going to give out, right? So something along the lines of that. So I think rivian is, I still like the vehicle. I like what's going on there, you know, having not driven it yet. But these are some of the growing pains and it's tough when you have to put your growing pains onto the customer as well. Like we've seen this with delays with Tesla and everything else. But listen, to Elon Musk's credit, he said, congratulations rivian on your IPO and lucid and what you're doing and the big power in the range. But just keep in mind and this is not trying to him being like a wacky guy or be the dick he's often been in the past. Him going, now you have to build the cars. And believe it or not, that's the tough part there, big guy. Hey, rivian lucid, mullin, fisker. It's like, you got to have to start building the cars. And that's going to be tough. So he was right on that point. Anyway, that being said, it's not all, it's not all doom and gloom. All that's out of the way. Let's get to some of the more interesting stuff. So at the end of this month, march 29th lotus is going to unveil their first SUV. Right now they're calling the type one 32. I don't know if that's what it's really going to be called when it hits the public market. And I don't know when it's going to come out. All we know is, every time we hear the announcement of a new car, we're like, congratulations. We got a new car coming out in 2024. 2025. Don't forget about it for three years before. Yeah, right? So anyway, it seems interesting. So lotus and SUV. I think it could be important for the brand. It's going to be an EV, right? It's going to be an electric SUV. It's going to have the lotus DNA. It's going to be a sport SUV. I believe they're trying to go after Porsche Cayenne. Which may indicate sort of the size of it if they said Porsche McConnell that'd be different. I would have thought Porsche McConnell because lotus you typically think small lightweight, so kind of a sporty SUV. We'll see where it's going to go from there. The teaser stuff is kind of interesting. There was a video that they posted, but in the screenshots, it's interesting because it's an EV and it has paddles. It has like a plus and negative paddle, which there's no real gear changing in EVs. There's some technology that's being developed to for some company. So maybe it has to do with the braking, the regenerative braking, you know, like in the teslas and a lot of the EV cars you can do the one like Ford as well, the Mach-E, you can do the one pedal driving. You hit the accelerator, you get off the accelerator and start to apply the brakes. You don't need to use the brake pedal. Maybe it's some version of turning that on and off or the sensitivity of it. Things like that. So not sure how they're going to how they're going to do that. But anyway, that's the news from those guys. We've talked about these guys before, specialty vehicle engineering. It's an aftermarket tuner been around for a long time. They're making these specialty vehicles. I'm not sure if I'm a big fan of this thing that they've been doing. A lot of the old timer guys like this, but they take the modern vehicles, they tune it, whatever graphics, power the whole thing. And.

"Put it in the figures like that. Puts reality. It takes the giggle out of it. I mean, it's a horrible thing. It does. Now, from the owner's point of view or the order holders, they didn't take delivery of the car. So this isn't going to be on them. They don't have to call their insurance company. They can decide, do we order a new car? Do we cancel the order, whatever. I'm sure they're going to have to work that out with the car companies, the particular brands, maybe Porsche does something different than VW, maybe VW does something different than Audi, Lamborghini, and so on and so forth. How'd you like to be the concierge taking those codes? Yeah, and listen, and all these dealers that don't have a lot of information. They're getting phone calls and all kinds of information from their customers going, what are we doing? What's going on? And these are expensive cars, so it's a little bit different type of buyer and it's sort of a little bit more of a hand holding process when you're constant ordering a car and you're building it to order and if you do paint to match and all kinds of stuff. So yeah, it sounds like a whole terrible situation. Good that nobody's hurt, but now this is an impact on the environment out there and impact financially. There's a lot of things going on. But anyway, that's the news there. And in other reservation holder news, rivian just announced, I believe, today, or yesterday, rivian said, hey, we can't, when we announced the pricing of our vehicles, we announced the pricing of our vehicles back in 2018. Pretty pandemic pre chip shortage pre, everything. So now they had a note out to all of their reservation holders and said, we can't give you the vehicle for that price. So you can either pay more for the vehicle that you ordered or we can downgrade you to a lesser vehicle, meaning two motors instead of four or smaller battery, for roughly the same price. What's the difference? Well, if you ordered the long run, the price difference, yeah. It's not insignificant. So if you ordered the base price vehicle, the R one T, which was, that's up 17% to 78,975. And if you ordered the quad motor configuration of the RS one, that's up 20%. 20%. So the forums, this has only been out there for like a day, and there was like 40 pages of comments on the forums in the first day of people saying this is pricing me out of the vehicle. I can no longer afford the vehicle. I have to cancel orders and some are saying, I got to get the lesser version and obviously, listen, there's not a single person that's on the list that's going, yeah, all right, it's fine. I mean, some people will deal with it because they can afford it. But nobody got this email and was like, eh, I expected this. This is the tough one to swallow. Now this is, this is a tough thing to do. Because no matter how much money or how little money you have, this hurts, right? This hearts to get this sort of news and going, hey, congratulations. You're going to be one of the first people to get this cool new electric truck that we've been talking about. But you're going to have to pay us a lot more money for it. And this is a little different than the dealer going to them and going, hey, you with the new lightning on the new Z06 Corvette. I know you gave $500 deposit to get to get that vehicle. But there's a $10,000 dealer markup, right? So this isn't Ford and GM going, hey dealers, you need to stop doing that. You can't just charge whatever, you know, people are waiting for the car. There's reservations for the car. Do the right thing and just charge sticker. This is the factory going. We got to make more money on these cars. For whatever financial reason, stock price reasons, whatever the pressure is coming from. So that's a tough gig. Listen, here's my prediction. That's either going to be one bad ass truck or that they just dealt ourselves their death blow. Because if it's an established manufacturer, you're going to obviously have some trust in now you have to have that much more trust in their ability to provide this technology at the top level to constitute a 25 or 20% upgrade before you have even driven. Because they're brand new, right? They're brand new. All of these order holders have never horrible move. Yeah, it's a tough move. I'm a little surprised that there wasn't. Some sort of compensation. Like, where's the goodwill? You know what I'm saying? Yeah. You know, like, you know how like even Ford was like, oh, you know, we know we have chip shortages at a couple of other things that are affecting the new vehicles, but we told you guys you were going to get a Bronco, but now we found out the hard tops were leaking water. So there's going to be a delay in the hardtops. But then at least four did something they came back and they said, but we'll give you a credit or like a gift card to use in the aftermarket catalog for the parts of accessories, right?.

"Everything costs time and money. Sorry. Sorry. It's all good. Speaking of reality, here's the update on the felicity ace. This is the big ship that's been burning. In the middle of the ocean with about 4000 cars on it, I'm sure you guys have seen it in the news, certainly in the automotive news and every other podcast. Everybody's covering it. It's tragic. I don't know. The whole thing is just wacky. The crew on the ship, by the way, let's just lead with this. The crew on the ship has been evacuated 22 members that happened a while ago. Everything's fine. But of the 4000 cars from the VW group, there's VWs, there's Porsche, Audi's, Bentley's Lamborghinis. They didn't really give any information as to how many of each of those cars I think Matt farron smoking tire has been very vocal about it. I think he ordered a car a specialty Porsche that is on there super sucks. I'm just so. Very, very sad to hear that. I mean, obviously 4000 cars. It's terrible situation, right? Obviously he's going to get his car replaced and he's going to have to wait a little bit longer and whatever. So it'll get worked out. But yeah, you know, you're waiting a long time and then you get a phone call or an email or something going, yeah, sorry, you're one off special car that you custom ordered is parting in the middle of the ocean. We're pretty sure. I like Matt. And so my laughing is not as nothing to do with him. It's just, it's a giddy kind of a helpless laugh because I can unmistakably empathize with him. There's nothing he could do. There's nothing anybody with the order of these cars, like you're just sitting there going, oh great, well, I'm screwed. But also it's like, it's a car. I don't know. The whole thing's kind of weird, and I do like that. I do feel bad. Are there any numbers on the electric vehicles versus the others? I don't know that. So that's part of the issue is when this thing started to catch fire, it worked its way to some of the electric cars and the batteries. And those were on fire and how do you put them out and the chemicals? But the bad news is so they were towing it in. First they couldn't do anything for like a week. It needed to kind of burn for a bit. And then there were towering it towing it in. And it's still out there. I don't know, it's like 202 150 nautical miles out there. And it just got its ass kicked with huge waves and big weather out there. And then it banked over about 45° and caught some water and that was it. So now it's sank. So now this damn thing is at the bottom of the ocean. So there's not even, well, now there's a whole bunch of problems. One, who knows what's in the bottom of the ocean now, right? Chemicals and oil and diesel fuel from the ship and there's a whole freaking mess out there that is terrible. But then yes, not being able to bring it in. There's not even a crew that can get on board and kind of walk around and be like, did anything get salvaged and can we take inventory over the cars and obviously there's paperwork of saying what's on the thing, but now you have to, I don't know what you can do. I guess I don't know. First of all, there's got to be a clean up crew in the ocean, trying to. Oil spells we've seen before and we've got some methods of cleaning that up and diesel fuel and stuff. But I don't know what's going on with lithium ion batteries and all kinds of other stuff. That make up those batteries. So it sounds like it's a shit show at the bottom of the ocean, which that's the part where we're like, oh, it's sank, we lost all our cars. Yeah, but also, didn't we just screw up? The ocean in that area. So I don't know, it sounds like, sounds like a big hassle. I think the Portuguese navy says, because it was so far out about 10,000 feet deep. It was carrying 2200 tons of fuel and 2200 tons of oil. Not gallons. And yeah, financially, this is a shitshow. It's $438 million worth of goods were on the ship. 401 million of it was cars. Look, to the owners of the cars, people that ordered them specifically, guys like Matt Farah. I don't know all the specifics of the damage that this accident is coming. Well, one you.

"Are you starting to settle in mind body starting to recuperate after the Saudi Arabia the trip? The match, the time changes, the lack of food, the all of the above. All of the above? As I'm cleaning kangaroo, diarrhea off my pore. Yeah, I'm getting kind of back to normal. Is that normal? I think it's kind of normal. Well, cleaning up the pet shit on the floor is about as normal as it gets. Over there. By the way, yeah, we were just talking about this a second ago. So Wanda, your wife has a zoo basically. I get like there's some animals that come to visit. She sort of like babysits and then or whatever, and then some end up staying permanently. And I've been looking at this. I don't even know what it's really called, but it's a baby kangaroo. It's like a tiny kangaroo. Does it get to be like 5 and a half feet tall? Oh, it's gonna get big, then. I didn't know if it was. All right, so most babies are small in the beginning. And then I just didn't know if this was like a miniature thing. I couldn't be that lucky guy. No, so. Although there's a miniature one then there's more excuse to get more of them. So they take up less space. And so yeah, I mean, there's like Cathy out to each one, but it's a normal sized kangaroo and it's wonderful. Rufus, the kangaroo. And right now is tiny. And sits in the car and goes on rides with her and wears a scarf and a little coat. What are you gonna do when this thing's 5 and a half feet tall and wants to ride in the car and wear a scarf and scarf up the window. The scars because it's, you know, it's been like 30° here, repeatedly day after day, and I live in Texas. It's funny that the one that grows up in Canada asked me a 100% seriously the other day. Did you know it got so cold here in Texas where we moved here? Like, aren't you from Canada, first of all? Yeah. Back in the ball. Yeah, I mean, hey, man. It's seasonal. Yeah. Anyway, I keep seeing Wanda's posts on social media. And I was like, oh, this thing is super cute. I was like, but it's gonna get big. Actually, that's why he originally wanted it because it's funny. Like me and the fading goat thing. Yeah. He's gonna get his ass kicked by it, and then, you know, the more reliable he'll probably have to quit sports. But, you know, it's entertainment, man. It's entertainment and keeping my beautiful wife happy. And that's all. She seems to be having a great time and does such a great job with the entire zoo. There's a lot. There's a lot going on. We can be included in that. You guys are part of the animals. Over there that she's taken care of. How's the garage? It's getting there, man. They're jamming, you know, one day it's ten cars out there and they're putting up the rest of the purling and the next day there's one card. You know, it's still, it's still the workforce. You know how that is. And then it's supplies and but it's moving along, man. They're putting the floors in. So, I mean, I'm getting excited. Get excited, talk to Ben pack, you know, again last week. Yes. Got the flooring decided on the main floor and then we're working on the second flooring and then the stairs and you don't have the stairs are. Yeah, yeah. So yeah, and then the garage doors and so yeah, it's getting to be an exciting time to make decisions that will probably prolong the project. So it's good. You got to be able to shoot from the hip a little bit. Not so much that it costs you a fortune, but like I was saying before on the stairs and Adam's new garage, the stairs came out great. The glass railing, all of that came out great. But the grab handle that they sent, the mounts on it, and it was wood, we just didn't like any of that. So Sean and the warehouse over there custom fabricated everything, got stainless round tube, and cut welded and bended on the mandrel bender and the whole thing and just went back a few times and take measurements and then he came here when everything was welded and finished. He had one giant railing that was mounted the entire shape two turns and going up and brought it over. And that was, it was a lot of work and it's a subtle difference, but it made all the difference in the world. We just weren't happy with the little red. I hope to do absolutely none of that. Yeah. I hope so too, but those are the little things that you're going to get you there. I come clean. The things backwards, like that I originally kind of planned because of the roof line. It's slow. Yeah. I thought the kitchenette and the big deck were at the large opening instead, you know. So they're on the slope side. They're on the lower end side. Okay. So, I mean, yeah, through all of the reconfigurations and everything, the additions. I seem to have overlooked something that was a really big deal. But is it bad or you're just surprised? Oh, I'm surprised in its bad a little bit. There has to be a little bit of altering the needs to take place. But for the most part, it's not really effective. It's just, I would have liked to have had the roof line 5 to 8 feet higher where I'm doing. In those areas. Yeah, yes. In those areas. Because it's completely switched and like the stairs, the stairs are on the opposite side. So I got the whole building turned around and it's all good. There's no negative about it except for I feel like a horse's ass. But I mean, that's all good. It's all good. Just some retrofit. Just some reconfiguring it. All right, we'll see. Let's see what that's going to cost you..

New Movie 'Zola' Is Based on a Long Series of Tweets
"Underscore Zoeller Moon tweeted. You want to hear a story about how me and this here fell out its kind of long, But it's Felicity Spence. What followed was a wild, mostly true tale about how an exotic dancer Zola found herself on a road trip that went dangerously awry to put it mildly. The new movie. Zola is based on that series of about 150, funny and often profane tweets. NPR's Mallory, You talk to some of the people behind Zola about turning a Twitter moment into a feature length film. That viral threat in 2015 wasn't the first time Zola born Asia King talked about that wild weekend on Twitter. She'd mentioned the story briefly after it happened the year before, but didn't go into much detail. Soon as I got home kind of just was like when I met this girl at my job, and she completely lied Kings, an exotic dancer, and she says her Twitter was already full of wild stories about people at the clubs where she worked. She got some sympathetic responses from her followers. But not much else. See, Intense encounters were just part of the job. Since I didn't go in depth. They kind of just felt like Oh, she had another one of her weekends, and we moved on Then that night in 2015. King was at home, pregnant and scrolling on her phone. I had came across the pictures from that weekend and kind of just like got triggered. I was like young man is I'm going to tell this for real. And while Twitter did want to hear what happened next Every detail she wanted to share. We just met yesterday and you're already trying to take hold trips together. Be ready by two. But the road to Zola, the movie, much like the trip itself would end up being full of suspense. Journalists called than Hollywood James Franco signed on to direct and brought his own writing team. But as a script took shape Asia King started to feel like the story was becoming less hers. They kind of added things in the blank space that I guess they thought would be entertaining. You know, in a film, it just started to really rub me the wrong way in 2017 Franco left the project, and

I was awakened still tasting sweetness which i cannot describe and i immediately related this to my brother and we understood that it was to be a passion and cease tense fourth to have any hope in this world few days. There prevailed a report that we should be heard and then my father came to me from the city. Worn out with anxiety. He came up to me that he might cast me down saying of pity. My daughter on my grey hairs have pity on your father. If i am worthy to be called father by you. If with these hands. I have brought to you up to this flower of your age if i preferred you all your brothers do not deliver me up to the scorn of men have regard to your brothers have regard to your mother and your aunt have regard to your son who will not be able to live after you lay aside your courage and do not bring us all to destruction for none of us will speak in freedom if you should suffer anything. These things said my father in his affection kissing my hands and throwing himself at my feet and with tears he called me not daughter but lately an i grieved over the grey hairs of my father that he alone of all my family would not rejoice over my passion and comforted him.

Because they're not going to get there not going to serve them at the same time since they've got kids. That's why Somebody who ever goes first is gonna have to serve Mohr of their sentence than the person that goes second. Yeah, but I don't know who I don't know who goes first.

And so my husband quit his job and we flew to Australia when he was nine weeks old. And then I started filming two days after we got there and This show is incredible. And maybe the only thing that saved being but I have had some of probably the worst year of my life but also with this incredible baby and these incredible husband and with this incredible. Show a lot of good things happening but Yeah so I picked the subject just because where in the past. I've had a choice whether I can get up or not you know. I don't have a choice now because I have a tiny baby Any is I didn't mean to debate a serious right up top a no. It's absolutely fine as we love gearshift. I'm sure it coming any second now. Yeah I've heard tell of how difficult it is and I've I've got a little bit experience of babies and children now named and things I'm GonNa do you wear at the time and isn't the same because there was an end in sight we'll give them back. And I think it is the very relentless nature of at the DC own difficulty. That parents told me and it sounds like you did it in a difficult way as we're going to come hence television show. Yeah

What Happened to the Students Caught Up in the College Admissions Scandal?
"This week we also got an update on the college admissions cheating scandal the hot pocket Eris Michelle Jan Adams was sentenced to five months in prison for her role in the emissions cheating scandal she spent three hundred thousand dollars to help her two daughters cheat on exams and secured mission for one of them to U. S. C. and while parents are pleading guilty and not guilty in what is happening to the students wrapped up in the scandal none of them have been charged with crimes but they also face consequences in other ways for more on how the students have been affected we spoke to Kate Taylor she's a reporter at The New York Times in some cases he got into college already or take out of their colleges or have their initiative mission revoked which amounts to pretty much the same thing some of them had to take attention from college if you hadn't gotten into college at all at the time the parents were arrested me Turkish charges were brought in many cases were able to get into college or have ended up at a much laugh elite college than they were aiming for and while their parents were using a live it means try to get them at the college we don't know where they might have gotten in on their own accord if they had it all happened so Michelle Gant have her older daughter for instance he was angling to get her into your hygiene and that didn't happen she not only blushed rejected from USC they told her you can never apply again so she is now apparently going to community college so they've really had their lives upended and of course a lot of people are asked why should we feel sorry for these kids they're still very privileged and that is true at the same time I think for any young person to have your life so completely rewritten due to circumstances in other cases out of their control mostly kids didn't know what their parents were delaying you would be very difficult to cope with and it clearly gonna be something that they're gonna be processing for years to come when this was going down ms Jenna has two daughters were in junior and senior year of high school so they got banned from things like graduation and prom NEO for a young kid those things are very important not to mention people talk kids talk yes you were barred from going to school at all the school made a really interesting decision and because the school wouldn't talk to me I don't know why they did that but they said that the girl had to complete their work from home for the rest of your day couldn't come to school at all they were barred from campus which is obviously a really extreme measure to take a stand out for years said that the girls were shunned by friends and teachers so it sounds like a lost their whole social and academic world and the younger daughter ended up transferring to local public school it's a tough position for the schools as well obviously the colleges you rescind their acceptance letters all that but at the high school everybody wants to take a tough stand on cheating so I mean everybody is in a tough position when it comes to something like this what about some of the higher profile students involved obviously the list we have men and her husband William H. Macy only Felicity Huffman was in danger here she's already pled guilty went in and out of jail after just a very short time what happened to their daughter holder daughter who's a hasty we haven't had paid someone could tamper with and get her a higher score she was really hoping to get into killing our kids not firing actress apparently she had proceeded to the final round of auditions virtually art two days after her mother was arrested she flew out to New York to do the final edition after she landed she got an email saying you're no longer welcome to audition and her father William H. Macy described to the judge in a letter he wrote at the time of his life sentence saying that their daughter called them from the airport in hysterics saying please do something please do something apparently there was nothing they could do so she hasn't ended up going to college there she's still pursuing acting have gotten from bulls obviously really emotional when you get a calls on something like that so far there's been twenty parents including miss admin that have pleaded guilty and all this there's fifteen other parents including actress Lori Loughlin who have pled not guilty and they're going to appear in trial Lori Loughlin obviously one of the most high profile ones and all of this still yet to go to court and figure out exactly what's happening that's kind of the big fish everybody's waiting for she paid about between her husband five hundred thousand dollars for their daughters how was that bin for them and then also for Lori Loughlin's two daughters the daughters will put you at U. S. he ran we're looking at our husbands were charged in this case what we know is that they are no longer a student at USC we don't know if they were expelled or what exactly happened and it's not really clear what her older daughters giving her younger daughter Olivia jade who left the facility ata for library and influence circle for all staff wants to continue that career she was silent on social media for about eight months and that she resurfaced I need to in December with a very awkward somewhat painful to watch video seamlessly with bank and she really wished she could talk about what happened but legally she wasn't allowed to but she really messed her fans and it seems to have gotten largely negative reactions on YouTube and she's only posted another video since then so it's not clear if her career advancement there is going to

How To Make a Mass Extinction
"This episode. Not so scary but exciting citing that we're kind of in the most consequential few decades in the past few hundred million years. That's Peter Brennan. On his website. He describes himself as a placental mammal camel but he's also an award winning journalist and the author of the book the ends of the world volcanic apocalypse lethal oceans and our quest to understand understand. Earth's past mass extinctions a book that the journal Science called a surprisingly lyrical investigation of Earth's mass extinctions in New York City recently and we sat down together to talk about the book midway through our discussion. We'll take a break for a short segment sponsored by the Cavalry Prize with Stanford neuroscientists scientists Carlos shots which perhaps surprisingly has some connections with the discussion of mass extinctions. And now Peter Brandon. Let's talk about mass extinction all right. The book is really kind of a survey of the great mass extinctions in the history of our our planet. Yeah there's a reason though that you go through all that and that's related to what's happening today right. Yeah I really wrote it because I think in the popular imagination mass extinctions or what happens when big rocks from space at the planet. And I'd noticed that there was this really interesting thing. Conversation going on in the geology community over the last thirty years or so where yes and asteroids seems to have something to do with why the dinosaurs went extinct. But they're all these Older mass extinctions some of which were much more severe and almost all of them had to do with severe rapid climate change driven by changes in carbon dioxide basically atmosphere. And so I thought there was both this sort of sci-fi story about these sort of lost worlds that you might not be familiar with 'cause unfamiliar with the dinosaurs but The planet really has been a bunch of different plants over its lifetime and so if I thought that was really interesting to write about but there's also this news hook about. Hey we're starting starting to pull some of the same lovers that have been pulled in the worst things that have ever happened this time. We're pulling the levers in the past natural Rossi's of the levers rate. Yeah so in the past this has happened. It's been for the most part sort of tectonic cataclysms So when one of the mass extinctions there's some weird stuff going on with mountain building that might draw down. Co Two and plunged into an ice age but for a bunch of the mass extinctions actually are seem to be associated with these huge apocalyptic volcanic events called large provinces were just an unimaginable amount of lava comes out of the earth covering Thousands of are actually in one case three million square miles But law alone. If it comes out part of the world can't kill everything on the planet has to be you know because things on the other side of the planet seemed to be going extinct. In these mass extinctions scientists are trying to figure out what that must have something to do with the gases that are coming out at the same time. And what you see in some of the mass extinctions but if you know how to read the rocks if you're a really clever geochemists you can see that there are. These huge injections of carbon dioxide is the air from these volcanoes. And you can tell that it gets really warm. The Ocean starts to lose its oxygen and this thing called Ocean acidification. which we're doing now? which is what happens when too much co two reacts with seawater is is happening in these mass extinctions too? So it's sort of unnerving to see that you know we're not there yet but Were trending direction. Where if you go too far down that road that it can really be all breaks loose right? A lot of people have said we are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction but the scientists who talked to are a little more conservative conservative than that. Well I think paleontologists are certainly you know if you're a conservation biologist or any area and ecologist you can just see this tragedy unfolding all around to you and I'm not trying to minimize the the catastrophic damage. Humans have done to the planet. But I think it's actually. It's both worrying that we could even be in the same conversation as these mass extinctions because these are just you're turning everything up to eleven and trying as hard as you kill everything on the planet. I mean this is the the end the boundary boundary sort of condition for how hard the planet can be pushed. And we're not there yet. which the good news? We still have time to save the planet and that's really the point of that Sort of discussed in the book that you know. We're driving species extinct at a crazy rate today. But they're still time before we get to the level love you know when the asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs when these giant volcanos were happening. So there's time to save the the turn the ship around and it's sort of scary but exciting we're kind of the most consequential few decades in in the past few hundred million years. It's really up to us to to avert to avert this Scott in a mind boggling and I didn't mean to minimize what's going on right now. By saying that the scientists he spoke to her a little more conservative about whether we're in the sixth mass extinction. It's more more like you don't have lung cancer yet. You only have emphysema right so everything's cool. Everything's bad right exactly If we keep up the current rates then we'll get there for certain In the next few decades centuries to Millennia depending on how you count but we will. We'll get there for certain if we don't change their behavior and we're making the sound like a very depressing book but there's some there's some lighter moments to it. I'd say I was it has to do with your felicity as a writer actually happening out there. Scientists the funny people funny people for example. Just to since. We're trying to have a good time here. let's talk about the first time you went out the Cincinnati Rock count people and the guy. The had a name for something that you picked up. Yeah right so if you know how to read the rocks and you know what you're looking looking at. There is no matter where you are in the country. There's not a boring spot for geology And there's some great. There's a APP called rocked which you condemn on my phone and it will tell you what you're standing on basically and so no matter where you are. If you're in New England you can look up. Oh my goodness I'm on this volcanic archipelago that crashed into tropical North America. Four hundred fifty nine years ago or if you're in boulder where I am you know there's red rocks from the middle of Panja and the dinosaurs and you know there really isn't a boring or right here in New York. We're on top of UH either Cambrian stuff from the dawn of animal. Life Ocean rock or in Brooklyn. There's glacial stuff from these crazy ice ages. That happened. Not that long Ongo and there's some cretaceous stuff in Staten Island's from the dinosaurs from these big river delta. So there's an amazing story underneath your feet. No matter where you are and geology is just is sort of amazing endlessly fascinating field. That sort of tells you about these alien worlds at the planet spend before a sort of crisscrossed the country and joined up with professional geologists amend was sort of introduced these groups of amateur theologists. Who are really inspiring people because they take their own time out of their own weekends to You know just pull over to the side of the road. These unloved highway road cuts. 'cause they know that there's amazing fossils there and they're incredibly dedicated to it and I was sort of a Newbie and I joined up with him. One day to look for fossils on the side of the highway in Cincinnati because it turns out that in Cincinnati four hundred fifty six four hundred fifty million years ago It was a shallow sea and it was filled. With sort of weird things. Look like horseshoe crabs in these giant squid like things. And so it's just it's totally alien. SCIFI world infects the lends its name to a particular time because of that right. There's this thing called the Cincinnati and in the late or division period because Cincinnati is the best place in the world to find fossils fossils from this period right before this big mass extinction but I went there and I went with all these Sort of really interesting quirky people. Who Do this spare time? Just pull over the side of the road looking for fossils and we're finding lots of these things called grab delights which are these weird sea creatures that swam in these colonial homes and stuff like that not colonial homes like from I'm from New England But yes I was finding a lot of those and so I would ask people what's this and say. Oh it's a trial by. Oh it's too late and then I thought I found something and I showed it to this guy and that's what it was and he said that's a leave right I said is that good. And he said Yeah Lever Right there and he took it out of my hand and he threw it on the ground so good. Yep Ah so you you went out. With a whole bunch of different people are amateurs and professional researchers and Saul a lot of I just got back from England and I saw the white cliffs of Dover Right So the white cliffs of Dover like a really good example of a lot of stuff. You're talking talking about it's all fossils. Yeah right yeah. I think people don't appreciate that limestone for the most part is Stuff it was. It's calcium carbonate. That was sort of precipitated by sea creatures. And if you go to Indiana and you see limestone if you put under Mexico begin see it's just all a lot of it's like little Z.. Creatures and things like that and the white cliffs of Dover Our caucus fours which are the you know you see today from space in these giant swirling blue green sort of hurricanes in the ocean. And it's just plankton. And you give plankton enough time and it can build up something like the white cliffs of Dover this giant Edifice Livingston. I wants to living
