"And if you remember. Elvis Presley was doing a lot of like Hawaiian beach type movies in you know a lot of movies at the time but one of the movies was called easy. Come easy go and it's like a. It's a musical comedy type thing. There's lots of you know on the beach type activity going on. You Know Surfing that type of thing but one that was done and of course the designed like what would be like a beach car for the nineteen sixties and they gave. Everybody can picture that you know the the Atlantic colors you know the the Bright Reds Greens yellows blues. That kind of thing. I'm the seats seat. Backs are surfboards. That have been chopped modified in in a way that makes sense for a seat back and they look like surfboards. Sticking out of the car looks like four surfboards. It's of course an open vehicle multi. Everybody can picture the hot rod version of that Big engine up front and you know. Open the top and you know big fenders and everything in the the fat wheels all around us not to fed not like the dragster type ones but just a cool looking beach buggy that you would anticipate you know being from that era with the beach cars. Will I guess they just repurpose this thing? As as the as the joker mobile for the Batman TV series which is really strange to me. Like why? Why would bear bear of all people? He was building so many cars. And and like you said been. This is way off brand. It doesn't seem to fit the joker for me. I don't know why but it just doesn't have the right feel to it. Does it far be for me? Criticize someone's artistic choice but it just doesn't. It doesn't feel like a joker mobile I think. Kurt you said it. Best off air were you describing it as the first round the doors looks like the grinches for Yeah Yeah it's all. Kinda matted down and dirty and I know that that's honest you know it's time right. I think it's time that does that. Because I've seen shag carpet that gets into the same condition after longtime you're on old custom vans and things but This is just like it's kind of dirty and getting gross looking right now but to give it credit. I guess it's in the basement of a museum I don't know there's a lot of tiki designed to it. I mean a lot of you know real intricate design on the door panels and creative it. It it's kind of like going for it. It's it's definitely dirty yet creative. It's definitely dirty and I've seen I've seen the the car. There's a A link to a video where it's a little bit cleaned up a little bit polished up and it's probably the way you saw at been all these photos are a little bit rougher. Maybe the way it came into the shop so it does look a lot better but I don't know as far as being a car for the joker a good villain vehicle. I don't know if it's a villains vehicle has has a happier feel to it you know. Yeah it I was to have that like dichotomy right. Especially Arthur classic joker in the Adam West Batman. Yeah is worlds away from like the Heath Ledger. Joker Oh yeah or the one that we just saw. Recently the backstory off the joker. Oh Yeah I guess. That's pretty darcus. Well how he actually became that person. It's just you're right. It's a completely different character altogether So yeah maybe but it's still just doesn't fit that character very well. It's an oddball piece of the collection. I mean there's there's a lot of those the You'd mentioned other movie cars. Yeah delorean a blade runner There was I have to be on. That was the only exhibit where I had some would say mixed feelings. Because there's nothing wrong with vehicles per se but you know you get up close and you know especially with Scifi vehicles you can see. Like hovercraft a glider of some sort and we know that that technology doesn't exist in the real world right. I accept that. Were there to see the design but then when you get closer and closer to break down and go oh that's at is plywood so you could tell that summer meant to be filmed from far away. Rights others are meant for close ups in those of the refined very carefully put together. You know well done ones. That's where you know they. They got the close ups in the in. The you know maybe the person inside and they're doing you know like driving shots or whatever but it from a distance. These cars don't have to be all that you know they just have to have the same general shape. You'RE GONNA have somebody different driving them a stunt driver. Whoever right right so that doesn't necessarily matter. I think one of the best examples I've ever seen but not person were some of the hardcastle McCormick cars. The Coyote remember the COON COYOTE. Kit Car that they had in that Mccormack the The convict in this whole thing. It's it's very improbable setup for the whole host one. I haven't thought about Robert. Yeah yeah but it's a great list loved to watch that show just for that just for the coyote because cool and they had a few that were really well put together and then they had some that. Were just piles of garbage. I mean they just it were fiberglass shells and they were on top of like a really rough frame and but they drove they run and they ran and drove but those are the ones they would jump over hay bales. And you know. They weren't so careful with it because they didn't. They knew that they could build another one quickly. But if you look at you know some of the stills from the actual film itself or or the television show you're able to tell you know like okay this is really really rough you can see the The intensity with which they focused on details in some cars versus others. That are a little bit worried. Like put together a bit more sloppily. You know right or the rough around the edges so you were there at the museum and you're seeing things like you know tack welds and you've really saw plywood on a car like you see in like it's not metal. It's painted wood. And Yeah Yeah. What about any other like really agree? Just things that you saw cars that were standouts for like you know this is the. I can't even believe this is in here in this museum. But it's part of movie history. Yeah I just WANNA keep I wanNA keep it positive like I ate if anything to put a positive spin on it It just the craftsmanship and the ingenuity of the people involved in the production. Because until you get up close to something like a till you get close to some of these vehicles and I'm not going to name specific ones to get up. Close this of these vehicles. You know when you see them on the screen. It looks real My car is kind of like that. Now Yeah what's going on nothing terrible it's just You know from a distance looks pretty good still the vacuum it. No I think it's just getting older. And there's some dents and dings and things from being in a parking lot security sitting on the trunk with their rifle the rifle butts you that They always causes a lot of scuff and dents and things but now just you know the the normal like minor flaws that come along with owning a vehicle for a certain amount of time. And and you know you're less pleased with close up as as you are. Then you know it becomes like a twenty foot car. You're happier with twenty feet away. Then you are up close when you're polishing the car and you you know just all the flaws and the minor imperfections that are there but I think a lot of these museum cars are like that too they're also many of them here that are pristine and he just beautiful beautiful examples. And maybe I'm I don't know if I'm GonNa lead you to something that wasn't there at this time. There were four or five years ago on the ground floor. They had a display. When I was there of French manufactured cars or or build cars. Bugatti the Taube. Oh I think was another one that they had but there beautiful beautiful flowing designs that were painted just like it looked like they had twenty or thirty coats of paint on them and chrome that was in real decorative Organic flowing curves and everything is useful cars but that was also in that controversy was have going on that they were going to get rid of kind of the American culture. The the the south in particular the South South Southern California car culture type vehicles and changed the whole thing over to like these French designs because the the new owner of the place and there was a lot of back and forth. Talk about what they were doing because they were selling some cars off. I think at the time right. People were worried that they were going to completely convert over to a different type of museum that it was never intended to be like where. Where does the Line Stop Right? Yeah exactly yeah because they had that history of being kind of like a a microcosm of southern California car culture through the decades like everything from the very beginning of the automobile all the way through current day. Yeah we'll definitely expanded their collection you know and one of the things is really impressive And you can see these if you go during the right time would be all the all the concept cars they. Have you know like they have a plymouth explorer that was built by Ghia and It explore yeah is nineteen fifty four. This was just a design study for Blake. How it Plymouth? Look if this manufacturer built it yeah I like stuff like that. Yeah and is really stylish. Nineteen thousand nine hundred forty four hundred. I'M GONNA have to look that up and see what that was all about but You so they have more than they have other concept vehicles there of course sure. But yeah I I. I find like just the declarative nature of what they have there to be fascinating too. It's like they. They didn't focus on just one type vehicle or one No not. It's not not that there's a bad thing about this but when you go to certain museums that have a focus like that. It's like hot Rod Matab Museum or drag Racing Museum than I went to recently they. It's all drag racing cars. They've got a separate building. That has you know. They're the collection of the owner. You know that has other stuff but like one building is strictly just for this type of vehicle. I find it fascinating that they have. So many different cars they can rotate in and out like And they have all these different Exhibits can again bring in and out like the they have a Porsche collection. Right I guess is is pretty exemplary as well. They have like extensive as they say Everything from one thousand nine hundred eighty nine Porsche. Sixty four all the way up through you know. Modern Day porsches well. They have Japanese automotive industry. Vehicles Air on display. Like you know a huge history of Japanese automotive industry so like everything from the beginning to the end of that as well. They have children's race cars that are powered that they can bring out. Which I think is a fascinating thing. I'd love to see that that I didn't see. I don't think I remember seeing any of those but the power children's race cars would be really cool thing because I'm a big go kart fan anyway. Like right They have you know the lightning McQueen car from you know Pixar. Yeah D.C. Disney car Delaney McQueen shirt on today. It's kind of like a sort of a superman superman movie. I just realized that I had the shirt on today. That's what I'll say. They have the NASCAR Herbie there. Which is kind of a unique vehicle. The nineteen ninety-two batmobile. Of course you talked about. They've got Elvis Presley's Pandera is somewhere there that car. That's another one that we just talked about recently. You know how Elvis Presley a guy he was. He had a lot of cars big collection of cars and the Patera one that sometimes. We'll make the rounds you know. They'll it'll travel. And you know with cars the rockstars or whatever you know and I know that it went to the Henry Ford at some point and you can go see you know. There's the bullet hole in the in the steering wheel from where he shot. The king shot the car. Apparently when it wouldn't start and I think the story is that after he shot at the things started up like it worked like he threatened it into operating in. What's the street? There's a whole story behind The the pen Tara L. and Elvis Presley but Oh and you've talked about the delorean time machine. That's one that I think everybody can picture. There's there's all kinds of movie cars and cars are owned by famous people. I know I saw When I was there there was Fatty arbuckle scar. He's a he's a car guy A big car guy. He's a he's a he's a big guy he was the big fella thus the nickname fatty arbuckle but he Hit cars that were built by parley. Earl he went to Harley Earl on three cars made specifically for him by Harley Earl. He were designed and built for him by Him. I guess that predates the days when he worked for GM of course and was fulltime on the GM design Steph. But her one of the things about Fatty arbuckle he.

I haven't thought about Robert. Yeah, yeah, but it's a great. List loved to watch that show just for that just for the coyote because cool, and they had a few that we're really well put together. And then they had some that were just piles of garbage I. Mean They just? It were five or glass shells, and they were on top of like a really rough frame, and but they drove they run, and they ran and drove, but those are the ones they would jump over Hay Bales, and you know they weren't so careful with it because they didn't. They knew that they could build another one quickly. But if you look at you, know some of the stills from the actual film itself or or the television show. You're able to tell you know like this is really really rough. You can see the the intensity with which they focused on details in some cars versus others that are a little bit worried like put together a bit more sloppily, you know right or the rough around the edges, so you were there at the museum and you're seeing things like you know. Tack Welds, and you've really saw plywood on a car like you see in like it's not metal. It's painted wood and yeah, yeah, what about any other like really agreed? Just things that you saw. Cars that were standouts for like. You. Know this is the I can't even believe. This is in here in this museum, but it's part of movie history. Yeah, I, just WANNA. Keep I WANNA. Keep it positive. Like I ate. If anything to put a positive spin on, it it just. The craftsmanship and the ingenuity of the people involved in the production, because until you get up close to something like A. Till you get close to some of these vehicles and I'm not going to name specific ones. To get up close this of these vehicles. You know when you see them on the screen. It looks real. My car is kind of like that now. Yeah, what's going on? Nothing terrible, it's just you know from a distance looks pretty good. Still the vacuum it. No I think it's just getting older, and there's some dents and dings and things from being in a parking lot. Security sitting on the trunk with their rifle. The rifle butts you that they always causes a lot of scuff and dents and things, but now just you know the the normal like minor flaws that come along with owning a vehicle for a certain amount of time, and you know you're less pleased with close up as as you are. Then you know I think it becomes like a twenty foot car. You're happier with twenty feet away. Then you are up close when you're polishing the car. And you know just all the flaws and the minor imperfections that are there, but I think a lot of these museum cars are like that, too. They're also many of them here that are. Pristine, and he just beautiful beautiful examples, and maybe I'm I don't know if I'm GONNA. Lead you to something that wasn't there. At this time there were four or five years ago on the ground floor. They had a display when I was there of French manufactured cars or or build cars Bugatti the towel. Oh, I. Think was another one that they had. But there beautiful beautiful flowing designs that were painted, just like it looked like they had twenty or thirty coats of paint on them and chrome. That was in real decorative organic flowing curves, and everything is your cars. But that was also in that controversy was have going on that. They were going to get rid of kind of the American culture. The the the south in particular, the South South Southern California car, culture type vehicles and changed the whole thing over to like these French designs, because the the new owner of the place, and there was a lot of back and forth talk about what they were doing because they were selling some cars off I think at. At the time right? People were worried that they were going to completely convert over to a different type of museum that it was never intended to be like. Where where does the line stop? Yeah, exactly yeah, because they.

"We're discussing some eighties TV series that were short lived and easily forgotten some of them were good, some of them were terrible. Some of them were just downright goofy. All right. How about this, Shaun Cassidy and breaking away, and I do remember this, because it was the it was terrible. And it was a TV version of one of my favorite movies, breaking away, which is what a truly one of my favorite movies, and I remember not, I couldn't believe it was Shaun Cassidy would take over the role. Sean, Cassidy gained teen idol status as Joe hardy on the hardy boys Nancy, drew mysteries. He took on the role of Dave Stohler, a guy who loves bicycle racing in the series, breaking away, inspired by the Seventy-nine feature film of the same name, the series may have done little better than it did, if it hadn't been caught up in the nineteen eighty Screen Actors Guild strike, and because of it, it didn't start production until late in the fall, while ABC had publicize it heavily. Is didn't seem to notice it, and it came on the air, and it was pulled when the schedule after it was pulled from schedule only eight episodes, seven of which were shown it ran from November. Nineteen November nineteen ninety two January Eighty-one Cassidy didn't see the film before. Oh my God. Cassidy didn't even see the film before signing onto work on the series. He didn't want to, to allow his take on solar to be influenced, by the way Dennis Christopher portrayed in the movie, the film was filmed, it was filmed in Athens, Georgia. His co stars were Tom Wiggins, Tom Brady and Jackie Earle Haley who actually appeared in the movie, but this time Cassidy was had given up on touring with his musical career, although he had released the album, wasp been speculated that he should tour somewhat to promote it. Barbara berry Jackie Earle Haley, John, Ashton reprised their roles from the feature film, Cassidy was proud of the show, and how it dealt with human human issues in relationships and it had no gimmicks. So. About this. Eight four seven says for seven Hello. Larry was a short lived in obscure. But nobody remembers it, but me I had a crush on the girl. I can't remember her name. Do you know Kim Richards? That would be Kim Richards. Hello. Larry mclean. Stevenson, it was notoriously considered one of the worst sitcoms in the history of television. And. And yeah, that was Kim Richards. I all I to she was in the which mountain escape to which mountain movies. She was in Tuff turf t u f f turf we will the no. Yeah. Kim Richards kidding. You made me play that she's on, she's also an assault on precinct thirteen she's the little girl with the ice cream cone, who gets shot by the gang members way. But that was it's Kim Richards. Kim, richard. Yeah. Her sister her sister, Kyle Richards is the girl who's babysat in Halloween. So they were in those movies, they were in those movies back to back now. They're Beverly Hills about real housewives. They're real housewives really. Yeah, they're nuts. They're both nuts. Now. Kim Richards was a ma- amassing crush a for me in the seventies. And they both appeared in great John carpenter movies Kim Richards was in a south on precinct thirteen and notoriously shot by Frank Doubleday who played Romero and escape from New York. And then Kyle Richards was the girl that was being babysit. Do you remember what the the name of the? Girl was in this whole time, precinct thirteen penny or was it, Julie, Julie, Julie, played by Nancy Loomis? No Nancy Loomis really Nancy Loomis is she's the one of the babysitters in Halloween. Man. She's a much older than that. Julie was trapped in the she Julia was trapped. She's a she's the brunette babysitter. She's the one that killed in the car in Halloween. So Nancy Loomis was like the she was the slutty one PJ souls was this one, but she's the one who goes she she gets stuck in the laundry room of in Halloween. And Kyle Richards has to come out and you know, it's Kathy. That's it there she is. Kathy Cambridge chemistry who gets plugged. Yeah. She gets to get shot and it was considered one of the most controversial. I mean, that was almost almost got it almost got the movie and x rating because nobody killed like you don't kill like a seven year old kid in graphic in graphic nature like that. Yeah. For for really no reason that was the that's the thing she just walks pay for sprinkles. Laugh at that. But it's kind of it's kind of funny in a way and I, I just think that, that detail that both of those sisters appeared in carpenter movies back to back both kind of icon roles in those movies. And now they're nuts. They're completely nuts on the Beverly and the real housewives, whatever they're both insane. I think Kim's even a little bit more insane than Kyle. But it's you know, it's, it's your typical, you know, Beverly Hills, housewife stuff. So let's see, here's I on WGN go ahead. Like, hey, Nicole. There was this one show. I remember when I was a kid.

I'm actually in town are finished baseball draft is tomorrow. Which is why I'm not only working at zanies last night and tonight's not doing a Saturday show because I met my fantasy baseball draft.

And I was there and the very first day. I want a ton of money playing blackjack the next day. I lost all that money playing blackjack and then some problems, and then I spent the rest of the week chasing the dragon. I lost my entire paycheck. And then drove home like well that was a big waste. And so then I decided I'm never going to gamble when I go there. Let me throw a theory at your tummy if you think this could possibly be true. Okay. People told me this. And I don't believe that it could be true that Las Vegas has a way of knowing that it's your first time in Las Vegas, and somehow you always win on that first time.

But those were the maybe one of the first two movies. I saw in the theater they put a nine hundred sixty three beetle. Front and center is the main character the film. This was no ordinary punch buggy. It was essentially and VW named Herbie who sported red white and blue racing stripes.

We've been talking about great stand up special some of the best ever greatest stand up comedians. And who makes you laugh we wanna talk about funny things to get our minds off of the dreary winter that we are suffering through. So let's talk comedy. Let's talk your favorite comedians and the greatest stand up specials and so on. Hey vick. You you mentioned at the top of the show. That you did have a a favorite favorite comedian or favorite standup? My favorite standup has lasted pretty much. It's never changed in my entire adult life and that is Eddie Murphy's delirious to me. It's still stands as my favorite, Eddie. I and let me tell you why it's still remember as an and I love there's so many good standup routines out there. But that one is special to me because I was a kid when it came out early eighties. Wasn't it eighty three? I think. Yeah. Yeah. Because I remember not being allowed to listen to that. And my cousin who was a couple years older than me came out to California his family. My my my uncle they drove they took like a road trip to California, and we went into their mobile, home or mobile home. But the trailer that they had rented and me and my cousins all huddled around a little tape recorder. And listen the delirious. Yeah. I it blew my mind. Yeah. It's funny. When you get to hear when you're young maybe a little too young to hear right? The blue adult comedian stuff. Yeah. Like, I was listening to Richard Pryor and George Carlin when I was about twelve right? That would be, you know, eleven or for you only it'd be yeah. Yeah. And I remember when when wanted came out the double album, which I had on cassette, and I would play it on my cassette player in my room. And it's filthy. I mean, it's I mean Richard Pryor wanted he's absolutely it's filthy. And and it's not just F bombs and words. It's sexual stuff drugs and all kinds of covers everything, and he does it in a very, very vulgar way. But a brilliant way brilliant, as I've mentioned before I think Richard Pryor is the funniest man that ever lived. And I agree with you. I I do think so as well listening to Eddie Murphy, as I was coming up growing up and listening to Eddie Murphy, say Richard Pryor was you know. Yeah. The God in com- comedy. I would go and listen to Richard Pryor and then go. Oh, wow. That's what a lot of people of a certain age did people who were too too young to listen to prior or. No who know really who he was and were teenagers. When Eddie Murphy hit, you know, a lot of those kids lot of teenagers who were who were digging on Eddie Murphy went oh, I gotta check out this Richard Pryor. So he opened up he opened up a whole new generation to him. But yeah, I think I think delirious is is a lot funnier than raw raw. I don't think. It's funny, but delirious delirious has some really great stuff in. Yeah. And then I I kinda agree with some other textures, and Dan, I know mentioned earlier gap, again, that's one of my favorites is well, he's hilarious. Great. Yeah. He is great. There's a lot of funny people out there. And and like I said. You if you have net flicks, you have access to a ridiculous amount of comedy special. I love it. There's like a ton of them home, and you can scroll through grow through for forty five minutes before you know, before you run out of of of net. Flicks comedy specials. One of the ones that I had fallen in love with kind of on. Netflix says I don't remember her first name, but her last name is Schlesinger. Oh, Elisa Elisa slow. She's great. She's funny. She's she's on Netflix. Does the last one that I watched was the man millennium? No middle aged or something like that it was titled. But it was the latest one that she did she's grain.

Look up Nikki Glaser net flicks. Or just I don't think she's got a net special. She was she was again, she was regular on. Chris Hardwick show at midnight. And she's had a comedy central specials. I don't know if she's got a net flicks special you'd have to she might. I mean, she's she's she's on the level of having an she should have a Netflix special because she's got that kind of a reputation now. But Nikki Glaser is funny. Yes, I have seen her. And she I I want say she is on that flex. Yes. I think that's where I saw her why I'm just a huge fan of hers. I love Nikki Glaser so much that just this past season of dancing with the stars. Which is just show that I can't stand never watch. She was on it. So I started watching dancing with the stars. Just so I could see her.

And she was giving me behind the scene stories about it. She was very friendly and very very nice. And and and just I think I think she's I think she's I think she's funny.

Let's go to Joe on WGN Hijo shaky green comes to mind, and I told band like can't recall the exact scenario if you will. But I think he was one of the most funniest guys that I've heard in recent history. Yeah. Well, Cecchi green Cecchi. Green was really. I mean, he's old school shaky. Green is old school. He's one of those guys that work the Catskills and was on Johnny Carson a lot. And I think the height of his popularity is probably late sixties, and he also was on curb your enthusiasm shaky green. But he's he's a funny funny guy. Jackie green, legendary comedian in in a in a guy who inspired. I think a ton of people. Dates me if you will. But I think you're showing the funniest guys heard in the last century. Yeah. Well, he's been around about a half century. Joe? All right, Joe. Thanks fan. Audio Shakir here. Stephen Galesburg on WGN, Steve. Those still. But Stephen was the tool for small world, but would wanna paint? It was hilarious. Yeah. You know, there's this is the I'm in the minority on this one. Steve we've talked about this on the air. I don't get Stephen, right? I just don't get it. And but but again, and Dan, I know you probably love Stephen, right, right? I do a victory like Steven, right? Or are you a fan of Steven Wright? Oh, yes. Definitely. Yeah. And obviously Stephen Galesburg is a fan. And I would I would wager that ninety percent of the people who are listening right now. Steven reid. He's hilarious. I I I just I don't get it. And I appreciate how funny people think he is. And I appreciate you know, the one thing that I really appreciate about Stephen, right? He's a he's a true original. There's nobody else likes Steven, right? Yeah. I mean, not with that delivery. And like, you know, and I will say this material is insanely consistent. Like, he's got a style. He's got a tone, and he's got a delivery. And he's unbelievably consistent with that. But I just I don't know what it is man. And all my friends think I'm nuts and at at the height of his popularity like in the in the in the mid to late eighties. When I think that was the height of his popularity at that's how he's still popular. Now. You know, he's a legend who's also been on. He was on. Larry Sanders us on curb your enthusiasm.

I just remember like the here's an example of a Steven Steven Wright, Stephen Wright joke. You gotta do the full like slow, deep voice dead band delivery. I put spot remover on my dog. He disappeared. Exactly because his dog's name is spot, and he put in a disappeared. So I mean, it's the people. Fall off the chairs laughing, and I just kind of. Obviously, I totally acknowledged that. I'm way in the minority on this. And that most people who love comedy and stand up comedians. Love Stephen, right. And that's fine. You know, I just it's one of those things that I just don't get man. And we we talk about that that topic every once in a while, which is I just don't get it like everybody else loves it. And then you're like, I don't I don't I don't know. I don't know like big bang theory. I don't get out of I don't get that show. I don't get it. I mean, it's like the highest rated show on TV spent on for ever and people love it. And I watch an episode of it, and I just shake my head the whole time going. I don't understand. I really. I don't get it. But the Stephen right one is is, you know, I look, I I I realize I'm probably wrong. But that's just the the guy just doesn't make me laugh.

I'm like teens, but they were older they wrote along the beach is a California and they were in a green Volkswagen bus. And then it sours all over it. And it seemed like they were always there to help the police in south crimes in that. Yeah. Yeah. At the time. Those Volkswagon bug little buses were really popular, especially among hippies. That's. And then the other day, it's a rerun of Luke leads on TV. And this guy claimed he had his dad's. Car that he had say it was a movie with Steve McQueen, supposedly stolen. That would have been bullet that would have been. Yeah. That's that's the the most one of the most iconic cars in movie history was from Steve McQueen in bullet. And it was a green Mustang, and then they found out that it wasn't the original. But they had time Celik and his two sons and his dad all standing there looking at this car, and they says just syncopal surreal thing. But it was look exactly like, right? Yeah. And they often had like I mentioned before when I was talking about that seventy one Plymouth Khuda from phantasm. They had three of those and over the years they had even more because they kept using them using they kept getting more kudos for the cars as they went along. So you know, if there's one floating out there, maybe it was used in the movie, maybe it wasn't. But some of them are the original aren't the original cars, but Linda, thanks for the call three one nine eight one seven two hundred is the phone number. Let's see here is GM. Jim. All right. Good.

But yeah, no. That was then. Stephen king's favorite kind of car. That's why he chose it for the book. It's why I chose the fifty fifty one fury Plymouth fury. So. Let's see. Here's a Bill on WGN.

That's another one that bears designed. Yeah. To this day. You can send your that seem coming when it's coming out of the alley and your team coming. And the other one would be starts getting. Yeah. That Vic mentioned that one a little bit earlier is his favourite. That's it's a they called it. The strike tomato. Because the one about arguments the way to school with time. 'cause I could've swore was a four door. We argue its doors. We had a big argument the to school with that. Dr. Real quick. I want to tell you up speed racer. Yeah. I know you're a big Kerry fan. The show during the episode where as well Boston sports memorabilia for the bar now. I have the actual helmets from speed racer. Actual helmets. Through your cartoon character. He I happen to have a better up authenticity. Yeah. That's funny. That's funny. Thanks, buddy. Yeah. So this the Starsky and hutch car is so iconic. You know, my dad when I was a little kid. My dad had a red Torino. I want to say it was a seventy one maybe. Maybe maybe a little bit older. But my dad didn't have it didn't have the crazy. White Nike stripe on the side of it like. Like Starsky carded. But it was cool. It was a bad ass car. And this was you know, I was really really young. So it was my dad and so he used to drive like lunatic. My dad. In the GRANDE Torino, the red grant arena that my dad had for many years. This was in the seventies. No seatbelts. None of that. No baby seats that was bouncing around in the back like a ping pong ball. So but the strike tomato is a nineteen seventy five four grants arena. And. It was driven by the police do of Starsky and hutch. There seventy show was given the less what's affecting it less than affectionate nickname. As the striped tomato by star. Paul Michael Glaser who played Starsky who load the car on first sight is major complaint undercover. Cops driving since a ridiculously obvious car wasn't incredibly stupid idea. Despite this the show became a hit in large part due to the cool car radically Glazer's contempt for it, which was so obvious that they had to write it into the show as a recurring character gag. Yeah. He hated the car. About this eight seven two area code. Remember Herbie the love bug. Of course, Herbie was in nineteen sixty three Volkswagen beetle. From the nineteen sixty eight American comedy, the love bug, which may or may not be the first movie I ever saw in the theater, it's either that or the jungle book, they're very very, they're very close. But those were the maybe one of the first two movies. I've I saw in the theater they put a nine hundred sixty three beetle. Front and center is the main character the film. This was no ordinary punch buggy. It was essentially an VW named Herbie who sported red white and blue racing stripes. And would perhaps surprisingly be featured in a half dozen films of the decades following the release of the original. Including one with the low hand, the old fully loaded. Here's David on WGN.
