Charlie Welcomes Trump-Endorsed Candidate for Arizona AG, Abe Hamadeh

"Are very worried about the overreach of the federal government and Arizona is a beachhead at all goes through Arizona. It is the front lines on every single level. We've been talking about how attorney generals better start acting soon. And enforcing the rule of law against these criminals, the cartels, these far left activists, the nominee for the Republican Party in the wonderful state of Arizona, Trump endorsed and endorsed by Rand Paul is Abraham Hamada, Abe. Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Abe homine, but close enough to her. Oh, okay. Well, I did my best. So tell us about your campaign. Well, it's been a rocket ship since we received endorsement of president Trump in June on June 14th. But so far, you're exactly right, just listening to your segments on the show. This is quite unusual times that we're living in, you know, typically we've been fighting only the federal government, but right now we're fighting basically the radical left is infiltrated every aspect of our lives. I mean, now we have to fight big tech. I mean, if you remember back in February, when GoFundMe was going to use that money that was donated to the Canadian truckers, who stopped them from doing that. It was state a Jeep to stop GoFundMe from setting that money to radical leftist organizations. So this is unusual times where we have to fight back not just the federal government, but even big business and big tech who can become as tyrannical as government. So my opponent that I'm going up against Chris Mays, you know, she's going to be funded by George Soros. She was funded previously by Tom steyer. Michael Bloomberg is going to make a big push for gun control. So this is who we're going up against Charlie. So this is very worrisome, but luckily, Arizona has many good candidates. And I think we're going to be the leaders of the America first movement

"I'm doctor Anthony Liz, and this is climate connections. Veronica Wright grew up in Austria, watching the American TV show the Gilmore Girls and dreaming of driving a tangy Wrangler like lorelei Gilmore. Now Wright lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and is the proud owner of her dream vehicle, but she's working to make it better than lorelei's. She and her husband are converting the Jeep to run on electricity. Wright has a PhD in physics and used to work as a battery simulation engineer. This really was a lot of fun and I got very, very passionate about batteries. She wanted to apply her technical knowledge to a hands on project and share her enthusiasm for EVs. So she created a YouTube channel where viewers can follow each step she takes to electrify the Jeep, and learn about the cost of the project, and the challenges she faces. She hopes it gets more people excited about going electric. And when the project is done, Wright hopes to surprise people when she pulls over to charge up her Jeep Wrangler. I'm looking forward to pulling up to a charging station, and then people will be like, what is this girl doing here thinking she can, this is not a gas station, you know? And having these moments where you then just charge it there, I think this will be a lot of fun. Climate connections is produced by the Yale center for environmental communication.

Caller: Trump Was the 1st President Who Did What He Said He Would Do

"I just wanted to mention you talk about the Republican versus Democrat. Honestly, I think deep down Republicans want exactly the same thing as the Democrat. They just want to say it. You know, Biden and mister Trump both have some very good qualities about them. They will tell you what they're going to do and do what they tell you they don't do. And that said, mister Trump is the first president and I can remember actually did what he said he was going to do. First Republican president. Ronnie, he did everything and he could to make things move forward, but he was fighting the entire time, I just wish he had had I wish it had the Congress to back him up rather than chasing all these ghosts. Well, the problem is, Ronnie, that you got this big swamp. You've got the deep state. A lot of people don't realize that there are a lot of Republicans in that swamp too. A lot of Republicans in the Jeep state. And you're right, I do think that the establishment Republicans and the Democrats work in cahoots, so we certainly saw that under the gun grab legislation that John cornyn pushed through, we're going to see that with the Amnesty push that's going to be coming that corn in is going to support no doubt about that. And Donald Trump came in and he blew all of that up and that's why they hate him and that's why they're trying to destroy the man.

"It's just a big battery bank. Well, it could be. Now remember, didn't Stellantis come out where they have put the charging capabilities actually in the highway in the road. Remember we did a segment on our exactly. So we'll see where that leads, maybe this is part of that. Where they're testing the waters there, but stellan is also one of those manufacturers that says that the industry's demands to produce EVs is just not logical. They cost perspective. From a cost perspective. Right. So we shall see how this pans out. So there you have it. The new baby Jeep or what we think we're going to be calling. Yeah, the jeepster or what you call a fee, so it's a half Fiat, half G, a feat. The jury's out, everybody, again, leave us a comment. Let us know. You probably come up with something better than we did. A Peugeot Jeep, a Jeep. I like a PEEP. I can't wait to see the thumbnail on this one. Oh yeah, the peeps. Well, if you put a yellow PEEP, a yellow duck PEEP in there, man, it would be fine. So there you go. Wow, wow. On the day. Right. There you go, man. Here you go. So there you have it, man.

And that is the show that you're watching today and thanks so much for watching and or listening and we appreciate it so much. I've got a public service announcement here. Okay. This is something different, but I think it's for a good cause and side shot just pitch this too. I knew about it before he pitched it to me. Okay. If you didn't know about it, you might learn something. He's going to put a little bit of pressure on me because now it means we have to get this podcast out before Independence Day. But I think we're going to be able to do that anyway. Okay. So I'm going to set this up, but I'm going to let you explain it. So get ready to do that. And I think there's more upside than downside in this experiment. It is not a political experiment. But it is something that I feel like if there's a chance it could work, why not? This is coming from the kid, everybody. This is not JI. He has a request to make. You want to explain what the premise of what's going on. He's seen this a lot on social media lately. Okay. So they are planning to you'll probably have a couple days if you see this in time. A lot of people are planning on sort of, it's like a boycott, not buying gas from July 3rd through 5th three days. If you can not buy gas, there are a lot of people trying to see if that will bring the price down. And I think there could be a good chance if a lot of people share this, tell your Friends, go tell everybody if you think it's a good idea, I think it could work. So make sure you tell everybody about it and it's just do not buy the concept is do not buy gas from July 3rd through 5th. So did you know about this, Jay? I did not know about that. This is good. So now you're going to see it everywhere. It's kind of like that word you've heard, and you're like, everybody's using that word. It's been circulating. There is basically a premise that it will impact sales by the petroleum companies enough that they will not bring the price down. I've heard speculation around this in years past, but I don't know. So, you know, basically he's not saying you can't put you can't put gas in your vehicle, I think what they're asking is and what size shots asking is, do it the day before. Yeah. If you gas up once a week or twice a week, try not to fuel up the third, fourth or 5th. And then we'll look at the stats. We'll see. It'll be on the news two days later, and we'll see the success of that. So that's a good I like it. I'll be part of that. I will not buy gas. I will make sure that I have my gas before those two days. Hey, it's your responsibility in our family to remind us of that because we will be traveling and we'll need to make sure we're gassed up. And everybody you're welcome to share this notion. I'm sure we can do a little clip segment in this or whatever and tell them the kids sent you. Yeah, make sure it makes sure you tell everybody, even though you may not like it, your friends may like it, or your parents may like it. Anything, even though you may be like, what if I want gas to get to $10 a gallon, then I should go buy gas, right? On the floor. I'm just kidding. Keep buying those EVs at gas or two going up. All right. All right, thanks. That's the gist of it, right? Yep. Okay. So three days without gas. In those days. All right. One more time are. July 3rd, fourth and 5th got it. Okay. All right, done. All right. So that's the show for today, right, Jay? That's it, man. Yeah. All right, so we're making sure. Yeah, we've touched on it all. Again, another exciting week in the automotive world. And beyond. Maybe as you're listening to this everybody, thank you again for making us a part of your regular lives. We are going to probably have a little vacation breaky. And Jay's pumping out some videos. We may not have another podcast for a week or two after this one. And just know that that doesn't mean we don't love you, it just means we're out exploring. That means we're human. And we need a break. So there you go. So, okay. Until next time, whenever that is, that's my pal J over there. That's side shot over there. Boy, this is getting weird. Just got caught in the middle of an intersection as usual. I'm Keith. Words from Mark Twain. The secret of success is to make your vocation a vacation. Ah. I almost made that sound like an audio glitch, didn't I? Oh, you did, yeah. I like it, though. Like Wayne's world in the drive-through. All right, everybody. Thank you again. We'll see you next time..

"I do too. I think there's so many surveillance devices in so many. Products now that I just think you're trying to stop your arm has been amputated and you're trying to fix it with one of those little band aids that you get in the swimming pool with when you have a good finger. Yeah, no, I hear you, but I've traveled to China and I can tell you that there are certain features on your phone that will not work and obviously social media platforms are not allowed. You will not have access to that. You are being surveilled and you are being allowed by their government what you can and can not do. I got an idea. I can fix this, okay? Okay. Okay. Have you started watching Star Trek discovery yet? You keep asking me that. Though I have not, I've been going to do it this summer. I've been busy podcasting, man. And now it's summer. So there you go. They're communicator badges, right? Which they do a good job of in the discovery TV show with like they actually have a little collector's case where it shows all the different visions of the badge. Cool. The little shot of that on the show. So how about we wear a device a la Star Trek communicator badge? Yeah. But instead of like talking to the ship there in orbit around the planet, it just emits some sort of white noise interference that NASA's with all the frequency recording devices. Think about it. You and I have done stuff many times where it's like, we're getting feedback from somewhere in that mic or that camera's mic is getting a weird where's that coming from, right? Right. It's so easy to do it unintentionally. What about creating a device that intentionally causes interference and it makes it unintelligible? Yes. Don't we already have that? Huh? Look, you guys, I understand somebody's gonna take this idea and they're gonna run with it, which is great. Maybe just give us a little nod here, you know. Yeah, you know, call it a PCG or just give us something out of this, right? Right. What would you say side? You were saying something? I was gonna say, you know what the Chinese government is doing right now? What? Marking down Elon Musk's social credit score. I love it. I love it. Well, hey, you know, there's been a lot of, there's been a lot of speculation with his endeavor into Twitter. And we shall see where that lands him. Exactly. Exactly. So, but there you have it. So Tesla's going to be banned for some weeks, sometimes due to political. Scrutiny, if you will. There you go. So, wow. So we got, let's pick one of the two. What are we going to go with? Baby, Jeep now. All right. And I want you guys, this is your baby right here, okay? Yep. All right, so I'm going to hand this one off to you guys. And I think that I need to hear from our youngest guru on this one. What he thinks too. Now I'm not sure how much you watch the show or listen to the show. Not as much as you should. I know that, okay? But it's the lantis. Announced we announced for them what Jay a couple months back that they were working on a fully electric Jeep 9. Correct. Not a plugin hybrid like in the four by E, but I fully electric. Fully electric vehicle. They called it an SUV. Right. I thought it looked a little bit more like it would be in the crossover category, but in styling it resembles the Cherokee. Right. Right. A little bit. Yeah. It does. You can see the resemblance there. It's like a small, yeah, it has the profile of that, yes. I agree with that. And we said, at the time, and here's where I'm going with this. We said at the time, huh, I wonder why they started with one that size. I wonder why they didn't start with the smaller one. Right. Here you go. Um. So, I mean, is it just, oh, I smacked a mic. Do you remember that conversation, right? I remember it. I remember it 100%. So now we have the smaller one, which the Internet is calling the baby Jeep. Okay. Now it's got the camouflage on it. You can see it right here in the picture. But cute, and a cute. It's like the type of car that's like, oh yeah, I'm an SUV. And in reality, it's like, no, that's just a really small crossover. Well, but, you know, you're getting into almost mini Cooper territory here now, right? You are. What? Would something like this potentially be used for or who potentially would go after this? Do you think this is a good idea? And if so, who's going to buy it? I think this is actually a pretty good idea, and I feel like it's a really good city car. So it's not too big, but it's like just big enough for daily things that you're going to do. And I feel like this is kind of an everyday car, which are always good sellers. Well, most of the time. Okay. So the obvious advantage here, Jay, to doing a smaller EV, one of the obvious advantages to me is price, right? You make a smaller vehicle, it's lighter, it costs less to produce. There's fewer components in it. You can sell it for less. Am I right? Absolutely. If this thing doesn't beat the pants off of some of the larger versions in range, I don't know that it's going to be successful for them. And here's what I mean by that. That thing better be able to get 50 to a hundred mile plugin range better than maybe a Mach-E or a larger crossover. Otherwise, what's the point? How much less is it going to cost? Right. That remains to be seen because I did not turn up any actual figures on what this thing may go for. Obviously, folks, this is a Stellantis venture with the Jeep name. Which in fact, and I want to bring this up, we did a real quick podcast on the Landis had basically took jeepster and they trade named it, right? Right. Or in copyrighted or whatever they did there. And we're like, what world they could do with that? And is this the BMW one series? Commonly referred to as the poor man's BMW. It's like, you can get a Jeep, you can get an electric Jeep. On the cheap. And here's what it is. Do you think that's going to use leverage the name? I think so, but you're talking, you've got three players here. Remember who's Stellantis is? Who's under that nameplate? You kind of wonder what Fiat's going to be used for, because it ain't working in the states. You've got to Peugeot will never happen in the U.S.. It has the Jeep front end. You wouldn't call it a Fiat with that front end, right? That's correct. But what they do go on to say is that Stellantis is used, some of the Peugeot features, the opal mocha,.

"Somebody's got to make them. I'm sure. You got it. The projected logo on the ground in the LED lighting, where it projects the Bugatti logo behind you. That's awesome. That's ridiculous. It is. And you get 20 to 25 miles range out of this thing. Is that about? It's about average. It's about 5 miles further than most. But again, like on his Segway, if you strap on a second battery pack, you'll get 40 miles. So I do love though how the rear end of this thing, the tail light. It looks like a Bugatti. It's awesome. I love how they took that. And then of course they're showing the three different colors. Here, the agile blue and the silver and the black. So I'm now on that Bugatti website that you sent me to. It's got a lot more details. It's got a bell. It has a safety belt, a little ding ding bell. It's a 10.4 amp hour 36 Volt lithium ion battery. Do they have the option to buy it here though? I don't see that. So this may be coming soon. I mean, it's clearly either about to be for sale or they're just out of stock. Regardless of that folks, if you want to get one of these for yourself or just to say you've got to Bugatti, which that's probably what I would do. I would probably buy one of these just got to be got it. Just to have that and then when someone comes over, I show them my scooter. But we'll make sure that we have some links, some active links that are working and where you can go buy that. And I remember you have to be a Costco member to buy from Costco online. So that is an annual membership fee if you're not already. You'd be crazy not to have a Costco membership. And we did confirm here that you can get it from Bugatti on the website that we'll put a link to, but like Jay said, it's $1200. So it's quite a bit more than a bit more, yeah. Yeah. Yeah, but would you like to have an invoice from Bugatti for your Bugatti instead of a cocktail? I mean, just kind of, I paid 300 bucks for that. Hey, everybody, please make sure you subscribe to the program so that we can go out and we'll do a review on it. So just please subscribe. Yeah. We'll do a review on it. So I don't know when you're getting that side shot, but it sounds like you're getting it. Oh no. There would be no. Now, let me ask you a question. Man, he's already like at my heels all the time for my e-bike. If I'm not saying we would do this, but if we were to go after one of these, would you be willing to sell your Segway? He's not even hesitating, man. It's a Bugatti. Surrender partial ownership, so we would have to share it. Yeah. That means you would technically not own one. You would not be a 100% owner of any scooter anymore. Well, who said I had to sell the other one. I just theoretically asking. Hey strad man, just wait, buddy, we're going to have we're going to have you pull up next to you. Yeah. There you go. We'll do a straddling video. What do you think? We'll reach out. Yeah, we'll reach out to him, see if we can do that. Yeah, sure. Yeah. We'll get the strat man. Strat man, by the way, if you want to come onto our show, we'd love to have you, man. So make sure you reach out to us at parts kind of guru dot com. We would love to talk to you. We'll be at sema, so come by and see us. We saw your car last year, so there you go. Wow. So that's cool. I'd love to have a Bugatti. Yeah, well, yeah. The real one would be great, but so here's a question for our youngest guru in the house and I don't know how up to speedy is on what cars cost these days. Let me just ask you this, Keith. The first car you ever own, where you were physically making car payments on it. Yeah. What was your important clarification? Okay. Right. So what did you pay? Okay, well, do you want me to tell you what roughly the year was or do we just go? Yes, I think that's relevant, yes. So it would have been 1990 1989, 1990. It was a 1986 Mustang two door, manual transmission, but it's a four cylinder because I worked at the grocery store and my parents didn't want me doing donuts in the parking lot. So I learned to drive a manual transmission on that car was technically the second car that I was allowed to drive. The first I did not pay for. That was your clarification, right? Right. So my monthly payment and my family did me a real solid and they never told me this until years later. I discovered it myself. The cat out of the bag. They went and basically worked to deal out where they took, they made it look like I was mailing my payment into a payment entity. And it was kind of like a PO box or whatever and they were taking it. And what they did is they combined my insurance and my car payment into one payment to even simple for me. That's nice. Printed me up a payment booklet and as far as I knew I was sending that into like a bank, but it was going to be clever. And so I want to say with insurance and that's the important distinction there. Two 50, two 85 a month, something like that. Wow. $285 a month? Well, that was a 90. Okay, yeah. 5, 6 year old Mustang. Okay. Yeah. Well, still, it carries a significant price even a 5 year old Mustang. So it's not cheap. But that was insurance and the car payment itself. 16 year old insurance is probably half that. Pretty high. Right? Yeah, it's pretty high, yeah. Until you get into your 30s, yeah, for sure. Well, I think my first car payment, it was in the early 80s and it was not an insurance, I didn't have an insurance payment included, and it was a brand new vehicle. As a matter of fact, it was an 80 model. Suzuki sidekick. No, no, believe it or not, it was a Ford Pinto, man. Wow, in 80. That was right near the end of that. It really was. It was the one, it was the trunk version. It was not a hatchback, and it had the starsky and Hutch styling. Yeah. Yeah. It was a nice ride for what it was. But I think my monthly payment on that was around a 120 a month. For a brand new car. I think I don't know how much my dad helped me with down payment, but he got it to a manageable car payment for him. I mean, it wasn't. I mean, a $120 a month in 1980. That's still a lot of money. Yeah. And of course, I haven't had a car payment now for probably, I know at least 7 years, 8 years, maybe. I like to get them and then take care of them and be done with it. But repeatedly trying to get me into a car payment. You know, he just sees all these displaying and he's like, well, after this story, he may understand a little bit more why that may not be a, by the way. Federal minimum wage, 1980, $3 and ten cents an hour. Oh, I know what all too well, pal. Reach in an hour, Jay. Yeah, not a lot of money, pal. Not a lot of money, but I sold a lot of auto parts during those days, so at least I had a paycheck, and I was able to.

"Honda. And they already have the tooling and the development skills in that sector of the industry that they can quickly test and put to test and then bring to market because they already have the equipment, the technology and the brains behind it in order to go quickly to market. And so here we were two years ago going, where's Honda and Toyota and all this stuff? Well, they've been kind of smart sitting back watching everybody else make knee jerk moves and speaking of one being lordstown. We can't go without bringing up lordstown. That has yet to bring an electric truck to the market. I wish them well. And if lordstown fans, if you guys are listening, if you've got some info on what's going on, let me know, and we'll definitely talk about it. But as of late, I haven't heard anything, yes, yes. First commercial EV production truck. I'm not sure where you're getting your information. Well, that's rivian, man. No, no. Lordstown said it was them. I don't think so, pal. As a matter of fact, the CyberTruck is lagging as they have been in this. They still may be lured down based on what Elon has said. If Honda has knowledge of something in the works at Sony right now that is a second generation power platform like a solid state battery platform or something like that and they've said together, let's produce this in a Honda branded vehicle. Right. All the while using the GM ulti and battery platform. To build the reviews. And like I said with what GM is doing, they can wirelessly manage those battery cells in a manner that even Tesla can't do right now when they're limited to their capacity. So I do think that GM is has certainly come out smelling like roses when it comes to the battery platform because range is the only thing I think people seem to kind of want to get hooked up on range range range and weight all those sorts of things and stuff like that and it's going to come out again. We say it time and time and again the battery technology that we are talking about today is going to be different even in 6 months from now. Guarantee you that make sure you come back and subscribe to this channel to listen to that. We told you so video when that comes out, right? Yep. I feel like, yeah, I feel like it. So feel it coming. So congrats to Sony for finally getting their toes in the pool. I think that Honda is definitely a big enough player in the automotive industry. That really speaks volumes to me. We're going to be talking about Sony next summer. Guaranteed. Not sooner. Yep. So there you go. Wow, just so much to talk about Keith. I'll tell you a side shot. You know, there's always automotive news. Yeah. And even Bugatti, Bugatti even being the VIP vehicle that they are, they still get a lot of press coverage. I mean, the average person can not afford one of those things. But this segment, you guys, it's just gonna be, it might be the most painful video segment I've ever done. Okay, so go ahead and just put that on record. Yeah, okay. Well, let's just get right to it. You ready? Sure. I didn't work. Have you revealed it yet? He's looking at a picture of it right here sort of. Okay, so the headline. So the new story is and if you're a Costco member, this will be very useful to you. So pay attention Costco members. Bugatti now has a two wheeled run flat tires scooter that has the Bugatti name on it. You Gotti has authorized it and allowing Costco to sell this through their chain of warehouse stores out there. And you can get this thing for as little as $920. Where are they about that? Looking at pictures of it here. It looks like I can see it in three different colors. You want to see? Yeah, so we're not even two minutes into this and then the negotiations have started. Right, there's a few colors. There's red. But there's agile blue and silver, but it's only on Bugatti scooters in a dot com website and it's $1200 over there for getting it directly from Bugatti. And I think that that's kind of a plan thing by Bugatti. Yeah, it's a special. Yeah, absolutely. Give Costco, now I will say this. I've been into Costco and I look for a display and I do not see any on display yet. Now, as I go and look at their website right now, it is not on Costco's website. No, it's interesting. I don't know where this is going to go. We're going to find that link and we will put that link on there. But anyway, it says it no longer is Bugatti strictly for millionaires. It just found it just found it. Did you? Yeah, move your hands by shot. $919. It's weird. But it includes shipping and handling too, by the way. So okay, let me try to do a better job of explaining it. I can say this. You click on the little picture of the scooter with the name under it. It's in the search results. Yes, when you search for it and when you click on it, you know how it's supposed to bring up maybe more pictures of it and details and options and by now we're at the Carter or whatever. It's just like, this product does not exist. Yeah. Pretty good observer. So we're going to have to get back to that. And they said, by the way, it's black as the color that they will be selling at Costco. Not red. So I stand corrected there. But if you want the blue, the agile blue and silver, you can go to Bugatti scooter in a dot com. Have you tried that site? No, we'll hit that next here in just a second. Now, when we brought this up, you and I talked about this yesterday, Jay. And the initial specs, it's like, yeah, that's kind of average scooter stuff. Like side shot has a, what model segue do you have? It's a two wheeled kick scooter. It's electric. It's like it's a nice one. It was a Christmas. Like a segue 9 bot like 7 or 9. It's got cruise control. It's got oh, wow. It's a really high end. You can change all the lights and make it disco ball. Yeah, but underneath. But it's not a Bugatti. It'll do what? What's the top speed? To 15. So this one will do 18 and a half. Yep. Range is about the same as yours, although you can strap an extra battery on it. Is this correct on the weight though, Keith? It says the frame is made from a magnesium alloy and has a maximum weight capacity of 242 pounds. Yeah, and it only weighs 35 pounds. Is that right? Yeah, that's right. That's about it. For most of them. Now, and it folds up just like everything else seems like. Where this is ridiculously cool is number one, those run flat tires that you mentioned, although I don't know how you're going to source those after you go through your first pair..

"Good. No, that's bad. And as any good caveman knows, you don't want sparks near your openly spraying fuel. Then you put out a warning that their clutches heat up faster than a hot pocket and are at risk for crumbling under the pressure and dropping debris all over the road the debris being all the bits around the clutch that help the car stay driving. Another recall for the Wrangler was for the weld attaching the lower control arms to the axle, which you don't need to be a mechanic to realize is a crucial part of any vehicle, especially one that's marked for use off the pavement. I heard of there's like horror stories in R slash cars and some dudes spent basically as much money as you can spend on a Jeep. It was like a Rubicon Gladiator with all the bells and whistles and he wanted it as like a little like adventure car that he could toe with his RV. And he picked it up at the dealership attached it to his RV, kept the center diff locked and towed it for like ten miles or something and completely blew the transmission, like the driver, everything was just shredded. Like, right off the dealer a lot. That's his fault. Yeah. Oh, totally. And it wasn't just the newest jeeps with issues, older jeeps were plagued with wiring issues and were often not so tastefully modified in garage hack jobs that left them barely running or ultra squirrelly on the pavement. Again, that's not on Jeep. Someone cutting up a car isn't the manufacturer's fault. The squirrel nist gets even worse. There's a phenomenon called the death wobble. This occurs on jeeps that are both stock and modified. It's basically when the whole Jeep starts shaking violently in an uncontrollable way. Sounds like me when I'm sad. Oh no, Joe. This is because of the Jeep's front solid front axle. This is a phenomenon you see in independent front suspension. Well, Nolan there is no one single cause for the Jeep death wobble, but it can be started with a simple bump over a pothole or small rock. It's typically blamed on bad steering stabilizers or poorly installed shocks and struts, but other things like worn tie rods, idler arms, wheel bearings, track bar, ball joints, an off alignment tone of pressure. Leaning too far to the left or driving on the street can all contribute to the death bubble. That's a lot of things. It's a common enough issue that there are a few class action lawsuits pending against Jeep over said death wobble. There have also been service bulletins issued on jeeps in hopes of correcting the issue, but a service bulletin isn't a recall. It's basically just a strong suggestion that they don't bother telling anyone about unless they ask. Despite all of this, Jeep still sells a few 100,000 wranglers a year and about 800,000 other vehicles. Their sales are as trailblazing as the Jeep used to be. The brand was built on the idea of freedom built purely at its source by the bloodshed and sacrifice of the greatest generation while they killed Nazis. World War II was the greatest PR campaign any product could ever hope for. The parachute jeeps onto the beaches of Normandy for the whole world to see. Chiefs were driven into Paris as the city was free. Concentration camp gates were torn down with chains hooked to the bumpers of jeeps driven by American soldiers. There hasn't been a product that has gotten that kind of free press ever. And even with all of that, Jeep kind of squandered it. They fell into the same trap everyone else did in the 80s and 90s. Turning into SUV makers. That's where the problem lies. Most modern SUVs drive like cars. They get decent gas mileage and handle like big cars. The Wrangler puts itself in the SUV class and competes with other off road vehicles like the Land Rover defender, Toyota 4Runner, and the new Bronco. And while the Wrangler is in the same price class as those vehicles, it lacks their amenities across the board. It does have insanely hot heat. Like when I was driving in my Friends, he turned on the heat on low and it was like melting my hand as I was going to shut the vent because it was too hot. I love hot hot heat. And it just blended. In my high school girlfriend, I used to sing that song, but I would say sausages and she thought it was so funny. She giggled so hard. Oh man, if I could be a fly on that wall. Performance wise, the angular falls behind its competitors comfort wise. It also comes up stiff. And it almost every other metric like storage handling braking, it all falls short. The new Bronco even specks out better off road packages than the Wrangler. Which should be shameful at this point, but it won't matter because Jeep will still keep selling jeeps as they get further and further away from the original idea. The Wrangler is the only tie back to the original Jeep, and the rest are a pure simulation of what jeeps used to be. The appeal of the Jeep is, I think, pretty simple. Even if you buy a stock Wrangler with open diffs, to a lot of places. You know, they're very capable still in that form, the Wrangler. Like we said, we rented one for the high low finale that was our production vehicle. It carried out what cameras and a bunch of equipment and other crap. Yeah, it didn't have a locking diffs and it went everywhere that are heavily modified Toyota tacomas went. Yeah, except for that last obstacle. But that was it. I was super impressed. But you take that same vehicle on the road and it's just not, it's not very good, man. I try to dog slow. Super loud. Yeah. And they don't paint the ceiling. All the knobs and everything like the interior just feels very blocky. Yeah. It's like a Call of Duty menu from like 2013. But I think if you buy a Wrangler or any sort of Jeep, you don't really care about that. At least if you buy the Wrangler, you don't care about the on road quality, even if you only go off road once a year, or once the entire time you own it, you know that you can do all that stuff. That's the appeal of Jeep. The Wrangler at least. All the other ones I'm not so sure about the Wrangler is it's a very capable vehicle despite all of its faults and manufacturing errors and reliability. The owners know that. They look cool. They look cool too. And you know what? With anything that gets as popular as the Jeep, people are gonna push back every little thing. Like besides the Bronco name another car you can take the doors off of. You can freaking put the windshield down. That said it's pretty sick. Yeah. Birds can fly directly into your face. In 2022, you can take the doors off of this thing. But we want to hear from you guys our listeners. So putting aside the memes that we post on Instagram were honestly just joking, what do you guys think about jeeps? Let us know by emailing past gas at donut media dot com and we might read your response on a future episode. I for one think that jeeps are amazing. They're amazing? They're amazing. Oh. Sorry. We're doing a campaign with omaze right now. That was super corny. I get it, but our producer was like, I'm gonna beat you if you don't mention omaze in this. So yeah, I think we're doing a campaign with omaze right now we're giving away a Jeep, all you gotta do is enter at omaze dot com. That's right. It's a three 92 Wrangler, so it's got the V8 and it's.

"Valine. However, the times were a change in over it forward. By the time the military put in their order, Hitler's favorite auto manufacturer had been sidelined at the Detroit plant due to dementia. His company, on the other hand, was ready to rock and roll and start pumping out jeeps that they were now giving the politically not so correct name of Ford pygmies. Ford using Willie's exact design, cobbled together 640,000 jeeps during World War II, and despite Willie's a bit, they stamped an F on literally every component of the trucks, including the bolt heads. Wow. Seems like that would have hindered production. They also stamped forward across the back like they were sending them to dealerships and not to hand Hitler, big freedom sized ass kicking. Willie saw what Ford was doing and in turn started writing willies across their tailgates until the government told them both to knock it off and stop advertising on their war machines. That's awesome. The jeeps cost Uncle Sam $782 and 59 cents per unit or about $12,000 today. For comparison today, the military drives armored joint like tactical vehicles basically hummers. And they cost them over $400,000 to produce per unit. You could buy 8 decked out Jeep gladiators for that cost. Yeah, this is the military industrial complex. Now a hammer cost $12,000. The jeans were handed out like candy. Every parents got their hands on them and started customizing them for their own purposes. Some were designed for sawmilling and others as firefighting pumpers and tractors. And some were even designed to lay pipe in the fields. Ford got a bit more clever and popped some train wheels on jeeps and sent them zipping down tracks. They also designed a seep or a C Jeep, which was an amphibious model as you could have guessed. That sucked as a boat and was made even worse as an off road vehicle. Because that big goofy boat bits clattering around as it bumped over ruts and potholes. I bet it looks like an upside down house. You're not wrong. Yeah, that's pretty good. But no matter how ridiculous you made jeeps look or drive, they did their job. Well, they were sturdy and nimble machines that stormed Normandy and scared the hell out of Hitler. The mustachioed madman was stuck driving around in the Ferdinand Porsche design Cooper wagon, which means bucket car in German. Which is worse than the Jeep in almost every way. It had half the horsepower and 14 more inches of wheel base plus, despite dean designed by Ferdinand Porsche, it looked like a bucket. Yeah, if you've seen a Volkswagen thing, it's basically a military version, one of those. And it had 30 horsepower? That's rough. That's not even enough horsepower for babies. After the war was won, these jeeps continued to make an impact. The U.S. left tens of thousands of vehicles scattered across the fields of France and the rest of Europe, not just as a thank you parting gift, but because, you know, shipping things as expensive. To put it in a bucket. Stupid with my feet. And you know, we put the juice in a barrel, and you know we put the beer back in the Jeep and then everything was so and they would put it in is still low for multiple years. And they never put a hole in it, and I will taste it. And I will eat it. With cheese, these sound like the vampire from What We Do in the Shadows. The Turkish guy. You didn't even need keys to start the jeeps. French teenagers rejoiced as they took the chance to joy ride around town. Oh, hell yeah. They're more responsible parents also took a liking to the light duty trucks with many turning the little things into versatile farm vehicles. Pre war is difficult to find a decent tractor in France because fruitier Lamborghini was still growing grapes and hadn't started building tractors yet. Within a few months the jeeps had been put to work rebuilding France's agricultural industry. We assumed they said what does that mean? It means I like the Jeep. They said that it was like a starter on next to the clutch or something. It was like a little foot ignition. That's cool as hell. Yeah. Why don't they bring that back? Hey John Jeep, if you're listening to me, John G Bill jingleheimer Schmidt. Wake up. Once Hitler was dead, allegedly. And the French are able to breathe free. The American troops also went home with fond memories of their little trucks that carted them around Europe. Up to that point, there weren't many nimble cars on the road. Tastes pre war had run in favor of giant sedans, predominantly owned by wealthy elites. But now the common Joe had a taste for driving freedom and wanted more of it. Look, let's stop with this Joe slurring, okay? GI Joe, I'm not generally such a thing as an average Joe, all right? Yeah. Sloppy Joe medium. Come on. Joe's are the original Karen's. No. Joe's are the original Kyle's. Sure. Chad. No, we've never been Chad. Sorry, other Joe's listening, but we're not chats. The respect for Jeep was everywhere. Even Enzo Ferrari said that the Jeep was the best sports car America ever made. Now that I read that out loud that's a dig. I had to I knew that this was going to come. I supposedly the quote is that enza said that the Jeep was the only true American sports car. And this has been used in marketing a lot from Jeep and other places, but it looks like he didn't actually say that. Really? Yeah. That's according to him. He made that up. Because even if he did say that, I think they don't get the joke. No. He's not saying jeeps are good. He's saying that like four sucks. That's what he said. Exactly. If he said that at all. Yeah. Willis headquarters responded to the demand and doubled down on the Jeep line of vehicles. They obtained the four rights to the Jeep name and started cranking out all kinds of Jeep variance. Will it started with the Jeep station wagon in 1946? And the next year, they started pumping out Jeep trucks that looked like a two door version of the current Jeep Gladiator. Then in 1948, Willis released the jeepster, which looked like a cross between an MG and a VW thing. The base model hooked up drivers with what 1940s folks referred to as the deluxe equipment. This included white wall tires, hubcaps, and sun visors. Nice. You throw some white walls on that. That looks pretty swell. Oh man, this thing is. Dude, let's bring back swell. That sounds swell dude. Dude, this thing looks so he's like a card that The Great Gatsby ran over that woman with..

"Frasier called upon X due to baker chief engineer del mar Barney roots. Hell yeah. To perfect the motor design. Reused through two years of R and D time at the engine block and with some tougher alloys, aluminum pistons and a light, light flywheel, he pulled it off. He wound up creating the go devil Willis in line four. It was a 134 cubic inch block with an L head design with parallel valves. The go devil made 60 horsepower at 4000 RPM. And a stump ripping 105 foot pounds of torque at 2000 RPM with 6.48 to one compression. That's such a low compression. That's super low. That's reliability boys. That's true that's true. The army was so impressed by the performance of the prototype that they took the Bantam design Willis had improved on and handed it right over to Henry Ford, so he could start churning out the Nazi stomping jeeps because if you want anyone designing something to fight Nazis, it's Henry Ford. Yeah, let me stop writing my anti semitic newspaper. Yeah. Okay, so apparently at Ford, there's a vault that holds all of their film like every Ford commercial, every it's like a medium. And there's a safe inside the vault. That has film of Henry Ford, hanging out with Hitler. Sheesh. Yeah. Yeah, I think they should have been tipped off when the key to the Jeep was the swastika. Why would you hold on to something like that? Why not just destroy it? Because I think at some point, they're like, it's kind of cool. When they started the Jeep, a little voice said, let's go easy on them, boys. They've got some fair points. Yeah, there's good guys over there. The trains run on time.

"To the Jeep. Past ass podcast is not because it's not about I feel like we're going to get a lot of backlash from this episode. Yeah. I just want to let everyone out there know that I've really enjoyed the past 6 years of being an automotive entertainer and you know, if this is the way we go out, this is the way we go out. Hey, I mean, that wasn't us calling it the worst subcompact SUV. That was U.S. news and World Report. Yeah, we can be held accountable for anything that we say. Yeah, we're just puppets. Look, it's no secret that jeeps are great off road, obviously, but no one is arguing that we're on your side cheap owners. Yes, if you've rented a Jeep, if you've driven a Jeep, you know that they're not the best on the road. I want to give a shout out before we get into it to my friend Ryan Lev and Hagen is good friend from long long time ago. He just doesn't learn man. He's on his second cheap. He got delivery of it as a brand new Jeep, and he immediately had to take it into the shop for like an engine rebuild. Like within two weeks, had to oh my God. See, that's what we're talking about here. When I was a kid, my nickname was Jeep, my whole family called me Jeep. Because your initials, right? Yeah, JE P, Jeep. What's your second middle name? Eleanor. Well, welcome to past gas, everybody. This is a Jeep podcast today. I'm your house Nolan Sykes, joined as always by the other hosts of this program. We've got James pumphrey. And Joe Weber. Keep it true. And gentlemen, we've already kind of touched on it, but what is your overall impression of the Jeep brand? What are your thoughts on it? What are your feelings? What is your history with this long-standing company? My dad had a CJ 7. I loved it. Had an LSU sticker on the roll bar. Used to ride in the back. Sometimes we take the doors off, me and my sisters be back there with a blanket. Great memory. Nice. Macgyver of one, always thought that was really cool. Contrary to our Instagram presence, I have nothing to do with our Instagram other than some consulting. I like jeeps. I think they're fine. We went off road in Colorado a few months ago and most of the trucks on the trail were jeeps. And I think that the fact that something like a Jeep still exists is a very cool thing. And it's kind of like one of those things where it's like, people are like, cars keep getting bigger and greenhouses in the car, keep getting smaller and belt lines keep getting higher and visibility keeps getting worse. And everyone says, that's because of safety and in a world like that. I don't know how jeeps are still legal and allowed to exist. And I appreciate that. So I am a Jeep fan. I'm on the record. I like jeeps. That's like, I mean, that's a really good point, James. My experience with jeeps, I drove my first Jeep, maybe a couple years ago, same dude, Ryan. I had a 2007 Wrangler. I loved it from the get go. A lot slower than I imagined I don't know why I thought it would be fast, but like, man, it's a slow car. You can get it with the V8 now. Yeah. So I'm a big fan of them. And, you know, I'm talking smack about the reliability of it. But honestly, I was looking at an XJ before I bought my 4Runner, but I went with the 4Runner because I thought it would be more reliable. And then I had to wait for 6 months for an engine rebuild. So wow, that was because your mechanic was a shady. I don't think he is a shake. Well, I mean, he didn't do anything to the car before I bought it. So I went with what I thought was the more reliable version and then it turned out to be unreliable. So I'm saying, what do we even know anymore? Nothing matters. It's like the great James Hetfield said nothing else matters. He did say that. He did say that. So, all right, well, let's get into it. In war, transportation is a crucial component of strategy. During the late 1930s, Americans who were hanging out in Germany watched as the Nazi soldiers zipped around in their zundapp KS 7 50 motorcycles complete with sidecar. The Nazis would roll up to the scene and one of them, clutching their styleman liquor machine pistol 40 hopped out of the side car quickly. Do his awful Nazi business then jump back in and zip away. Uncle Sam saw how nimble they were and wanted himself some of that action. Back in the 1930s, GI Joe was rolling around in multi ton trucks as they left actual horses behind. But they hadn't scared up a replacement for ponies yet that could handle the diversity of terrain in a battlefield. Dodge Ford and even Mack truck were dumping giant heavy trucks on the post World War I scene, but they weren't good enough. America needed better. These things were just super blocky and heavy, probably skinny tires just sinking into the mud. Yep, tires probably so skinny. This is a skinny back then. It's so skinny to sink it in a mud. Floating up from the army brass brainstorming sessions was an idea for a small car that had a low doorless body that troops could pop in and out of while popping caps and Nazis. The U.S. Military, which lacked creativity, were picturing some sort of topless sedan. Something like a doorless roofless Ford Taurus. The military announced they're going to make somebody rich with millions of ordered vehicles if they saw the right prototype. They passed over a ton of goofy designs and eventually had stars in their eyes when they saw the blitz buggy prototype designed by Carl propst at the tiny Bantam car company in butler, Pennsylvania. Shout out butler, Pennsylvania, dude. Go Titans. I'm just taking a swing. I don't know what they're doing. Go cougars. Probes had designed the little Jeep and in 18 hour marathon sketching session after hearing the requirements put forth by Uncle Sam. Just sketching away. Carl, don't you want to eat your soup? No. I'm sketching. Yeah, graphite pencil in one hand, freaking corncob pipe in the other. I mean, honestly, the fact that it took this guy 18 hours to draw a Jeep. I didn't think it was. It's a rectangle in two circles. But pencil and paper turned into a prototype, the army was totally blown away. The 1840 pound buggy was sturdy like a wombat. The only shortcoming in the army's eyes was the motor. The army snatched the beloved Bantam design out of lead stain hands and gave it to the fellas at Willis overland, who were known for their snazzy passenger cars and great engines. They tasked Joseph Fraser with improving the four cylinder so the troops wouldn't have to worry about giving the buggy too many beans and blowing it out. Bibia here, the blues are called in toss salads and scrambled.

There's no sound from the power track all here is the the big all-terrain tires rumbling crosses gravel road if i was if i had access to trail right now I could be going down. The trail crawling along over boulders completely silently no noise. It'd be really different kind of experience even with just one hundred and thirty. Four horse power from the electric motor It still has about three hundred pounds of torque from the motor so Performance is more than adequate and electric drive. You it's obviously not going to be as quick as it would be in hybrid mode with both the engine and the electric drive running but it's still pretty impressive. If you get hard on the accelerator will actually turn on the engine to give you a little little extra boost When you when you request it but then as soon as you back off and and druze more constant speed the engine will shut off and they'll go back into electric dry mode so this current generation wrangler debuted in two thousand eighteen. This is what's known as the the jail wrangler That's the code name for the current generation platform. This one is way more. Refined than previous generation wrangler got lot better ride quality. It's not quite as smooth as the new bronco But it's still. It's a much more pleasant place to spend time You know if you're doing a lot of driving. The sang older. Bronco older ramblers Especially over rough pavement. They tended to be a lot more bouncy a lot more purposing. This one's got a lot better. Body control suspension is much better setup To keep the body steady as drive along Not really feel too bumpy. This wrangler is equipped with jeeps. You can act four infotainment system so it's an eight inch touchscreen here in the middle And it's got also got four g. L. t. connectivity. It has support for android auto and apple carplay It's not wireless. You have to plug it in. But there are lots of usb reports in here there's Two ports upfront here. Both there's a usb and a usb and then another usb a uspa in the backseat For passengers in the back the want to charge their devices. So aside from the sound of the tires rolling on the pavement or the dirt The only other sound you hear in here as during acceleration you at low speeds. You will hear a little bit of a wine that comes from vehicle and that's something that's actually required by By regulations below twenty miles an hour. Electric vehicles are required to make some sound to help alert pedestrians who are visually impaired. And on the on this wrangler it just sounds like kind of a light wine. That's emanating from the vehicle. So the battery itself as i said is mounted underneath rear seat. It's it's a seal battery because basically this thing is designed to be able to go through up to thirty three inches of water. Water forming and be Depending on what trim level you have can even host the sing out So it's They make sure. The battery is completely environmentally sealed So that shouldn't be a problem. Given the jeep wrangler routes as this very light. Simple utility vehicle developed for the military back in world war two. This thing is actually remarkably sophisticated. that scott full suite of driver assist features Including dow radar adaptive cruise control says the radar sensor on the front There are surround. You cameras in this thing and got Fairly sophisticated Infotainment system in it as well and automatic. Climate control deals on automatic climate control. So i've been driving for allow now for about ten miles and i'm still got fourteen miles of electric driving range one of the things that keep in mind at twenty one miles of electric range. Officially ready to electric range doesn't sound like a whole lot. But the reality is most of those trails Most of the auto trails that when people do their operating are actually not that long is typically on those on those really hardcore trails. You're going very slowly You usually not going more than two three maybe four miles an hour most most of the time And the rue dontrelle for example which vehicles name for is considered one of the toughest trails in america. It's only sixteen miles from end to end so you can. You should have no problem at all. Actually doing the whole trail on a charge. If you've got a full charge in the battery you should be able to do that without without difficulty at all and then only turn the engine back on when you once you get off the trail. The driving electric wrangler is quite a quite an interesting experience sometime in the next three years. jeep promises to actually watch a full battery electric version of the wrangler and actually At their recent vide it's the lantis. The parent company of jeep announced that by two thousand twenty five. They will have. They'll be offering battery electric versions of every vehicle jeep lineup so everything from the subcompact renegade all the way up to the new full size wagoneer. Suv will all be available with full battery. Electric drive train mill engines at all so wrangler unfortunately Don't come cheap especially if you want to get the the fully equipped for off road models a wrangler. Rubicon typically cost somewhere around fifty thousand dollars or more start. You can get the base model's starting at about twenty eight thousand dollars and they do come with four wheel drive so if you plan to do a lot of customization of your wrangler You might want to go with one of the lower end trim levels. If you're gonna do customization do a lot of off roading with it. You might want to get one of those trim levels and get the optional rock track Four wheel drive system. But if you want to basically just get it with everything from the factory it will cost you this particular wrangler rubicon sixty five thousand dollars including delivery charges. So jeep is really gone. Upmarket over the last Particularly over the last decade. It's become much more of a premium vehicle jeep especially now with the new lagging here. Which i'll be driving in a couple of weeks It's it's really moving up to challenge Luxury suv's like the The range rover and land rover As opposed to just being a basic off roader said you can't get a basic off roader but that's not what most people by when they buy wrangler so vehicles like the wrangler probably aren't for everybody but you know there's definitely an audience for this It's got a lot of capability is thinking. Go pretty much anywhere you would ever want to go and probably a lot of places you don't wanna go so if you're in the market for something like a jeep and you want something. That's a little more environmentally friendly. The regular rankers are not particularly fuel-efficient. And you're going to have a tough time getting much much. Have a tough time hitting twenty miles per gallon. Most of the time a regular wrangler in this one this is things averaging twenty eight miles per gallon and right now since i left the house it's using infinite miles per gallon because it's not it hasn't used any gas it's It's been running just on electricity and you can. You can do most of for most people you can do a lot of your daily driving in a wrangler for by without using any gas at all. So if you're looking for something with the capability of jeep bill looks of You're gonna have a hard time doing much better than this if you want something. That is also a little more environmentally friendly than a standard jeep. Four hands on tech. I'm sam abreu all salmon new heads just the content. That's what you get when you join club.

G is a fellow at the georgetown law institute for technology law and policy she also worked at the fcc during the second obama administration so jeep before we get into some of the concerns. You and others have about big tech. Could you just start by explaining what separates social media companies apart from traditional medium in terms of their business model what sets social media platforms apart. From let's say broadcast and cable is that while they all depend on advertising the advertising that social media companies depend on is targeted so essentially your browser your social media platform collects an unbelievable amount of information about u Whether it's demographic information where you live what you races what your age is also collects data about where you go on the web right so i buy a lot of athletic wear right the room covid nineteen and so i do a lot of shopping for that online and then i go to my go to facebook and all of a sudden i'd get delivered dozens of ads for other companies That sell athletic. Wear so you know. A lot of data is gathered about us soul to advertising networks. And then they deliver the as you so that's targeted advertising advertising that advertisers believe again based on a lot of data that you wanna see as opposed to legacy media which just broadcasts what they think.

"jeep" Discussed on Cars That Matter

"This is robert ross. With another episode of cars that matter welcomed by guest mark allen director head of design for jeep market. Straight to have air. Thank you. I'm excited by appreciate your joining us. Especially because so much is happening with jeep right now in the here now with some new models in a whole lot of success i understand more success than the brand is ever had but i guess really when it comes to jeep. We should probably start at the beginning. We're gonna talk jeep today and there so much to talk about but starting with some history talk about a storied. History story achieve started around nineteen forty right before it was even called a jeep and it was about a little car. That kind of came in at the last minute to support america's geared up for the war effort and with no time to spare would eventually help win the war that's really underdog story. isn't it the yang's funnily enough with companies that. Well i guess people remember one of them because they're still around it's called ford but then there was another call bantam. And another one called willis. Yes they were all trying to win a contract to build this little mechanical mule that was like the price of a lawnmower. And probably not much more sophisticated. I have a great image that i use frequently when i do presentations. It's of an army mule and strapped to. It is what appears to be a. It's really the situation they were in. They just reached the end and they needed this little car to shoulder the load. I mean it was replacement for a horse or mule. And that's really where our story begins. I gotta stress. There was never set up to be a brand. We weren't supposed to be a commercial bickel. We were just there to solve a problem that was happening and then after the war things went. On and soldiers founded these stickers were very useful they were marketed mostly to farmers after the war. It's a really cool beginning. I had heard that it was designed to actually replace them. You'll as a mechanical beast of burden but the idea of quadrupeds with a howitzer strapped to its back is pretty damn funny especially because it might decide not to move might decide. It didn't want to go backward instead of forward. But i guess the jeep was a little more reliable that to constructions. Well can't funny thing is when you think about the three manufacturers who were involved in designing this first so-called jeep it really wasn't even called cheap so let's get the first official question out of the way. What does it mean we're the name come from. Everybody has a theory. What's yours all you perspective on it and there are a couple different theories one being of course. It was the general purpose vehicle in army speak. Gp just got shortened into jeep. There was also this cartoon. If you remember popeye Character in the popeye comics. His name was eugene. The jeep spelled j. ep p. and he was a bit mystical and kid wander through walls and go places others couldn't also those fit. I don't know what the answer is honestly. I hope we never find out. Because i liked the mystery i think is just unique and cool. It can be whatever you wish it to be. No one's gonna pin you down on it. That's a great explanation. And probably the best one i heard. I knew about the initials p. forgot about popeye jeep. The word that comes to mind for me as authentic first of all authentic is highly overused word today and in today's world where the spin an alternate truths are acknowledged fact. Some like cheap sort of stands out as a refreshing and unpretentious outlier. It is what it is and when you say the word jeep hopefully vehicle that comes to mind. Is this little humble thing. We call wrangler. Today we changed the name at some point but that is something that we hold onto. Very titled for instance. We use this little cartoon now. It's a profile in eighteen. Forty one vendor military jeep. We've been using it more and more as a logo. In fact it may show up in places where we put the word jeep on the vehicle. Now it's just. It is such a worldwide recognizable thing and i reflect on that a lot because when you say jeep that's the vehicle that we want to come to mind and it's again our little humble beginnings what other brand do something like that. You wouldn't put a beetle on a facade or something like that you may put a nine eleven on a came in. Maybe but that's was like their second car even the nine eleven although we are a monster brand were monster worldwide brand. Honestly people seem to think we're very accessible super easy to relate to automotive brands like that. That really speaks to the authenticity. And the fact that you can actually create an icon. That's essentially a one image. Hieroglyph that encompasses the entire mark. Yeah what a brilliant and fortunate move. I mean it's very fortuitous. But it didn't come without a whole lot of history sort of backing it up. I think maybe some of what you're talking about is getting at what cheap symbolizes to people that does symbolize that original. Cj five. I guess a lot of ways the one that kinda came around in the mid fifties is that sort of where it really started once. This became a commercial product that people could go and buy. It actually started even before that immediately. After the war they started selling gbs commercially. They were not really different than the military spectrum. They had to do a few things to federalize them. Notably they got their bigger headlights in seven slat grille but again they were marketed. Heavily agricultural thing or alternative like their third car ever marketed as the primary thing and then shortly after that they started to expand a little bit and created pickup trucks and suv's and things like that that had modern features like doors and heaters and that but the little. Caesar what you're talking about. And that's what they call it. Sage eight was shorthand for civilian jeep. It kept going and it was not changed very frequently. Even the body style that went for a long time is just a kind of a third little car. in fact i'd heard before we started doing the four wrangler the jk no seven dead longest time the vehicle. The wrangler shopped against most was a speedboat. Being that it was the third vehicle in the family and it was never a giant seller until we started adding the four doors to it but it was always kind of in the background but it was kept in the lineup because it was so core in so important to the line and we keep it now when we draw a picture of all the university of gps all available vehicles. Wrangler is always right in the middle because that is the core and then everything that we make has a piece of that car into talk about design for a while. because obviously. that's the hat you're wearing. You are the head of design and end this job. It's a job that comes with some responsibility though. Because i guess you're so indebted to the past or dealing with a brand that so informed by. It's past my first question. Do you have to hold yourself back you and your team Afraid that some of the magic might be lost if he go too far out. Or what kind of latitude can you take. Vis-a-vis the wrangler and then of course as regards new developments to and we'll talk about some of those in the future specifically really the wrangler shoulders. The heavy load on the historical side and it can move around swim around in its lane. I'm not too worried about that. The other vehicles we always sprinkle in a little bit of history but try not to be overburdened. By that for instance we just finished up the grand cherokee renewal. And i think that's the fifth generation grand cherokee it's more beholden to grand cherokee has passed or even before that wagoner we try to put a little bit in there but not wanna be retro wrangler. Never considered retro visit never left. I admire nine eleven. I bring them up all the time. Because i think they've done a really good job of cultivating that style of vehicle immediately recognizable shape and we do the same thing with wrangler. We try to keep that in line but the rest of the vehicles not so much and we're growing we're growing on the top we're going on the bottom. We're growing in different regions. We have vehicles now that we sell only try to. We have stuff in south america. We only sell their that kind of trend is going to continue as we grow around the world and it's been a rapid growth. We're still learning. I would say that's the best were income up with learning how to be a global brand. Because.

The Alcatraz Story

"It's time for another installment of sea hunt. It's still alive here on scuba shack radio. This time. we're going back to episode one of season two and it was titled the alcatraz story this episode premiered on january fourth nineteen fifty nine at the time. Alcatraz was still very much an operation as a prison and it did not close until march of nineteen sixty three. The alcatraz story starts off with a scene of several convicts breaking rocks on the cliffs of alcatraz when all of a sudden one of the convex Falls in and then you see him. Swim-down before surfacing when the guards fish him out but wait. There's a mysterious fishing boat. The olympia watching what's happening. The convict circling is arm as if he's signaling fishing boat the scene shifts to the boat and three guys say they need to find mike nelson. Now we're underwater with mike nelson and he's testing flares for company. When all of a sudden an anchor comes crashing down dangerously close to him and an a skin. Diver comes diving down. Mike is really mad. And he's ready to chew him out when he gets to the surface but they get to the surface in all the guys start apologizing and they say they've came a long way to see mike and mike ask them why to bury mitzi no. They introduced themselves as the brand brothers. Larry johnny and frank they claim to be abalone divers and need to to learn how to scuba dive so they can find the abalone. Mike advises them on the law. But they say hey there lotto buying brothers so he agrees to teach larry and johnny how to scuba dive for three hundred dollars. And we're going to start tomorrow morning at eight thirty. But mike tells them any of them goof off. It's over so the next morning they're out diving. Mike says they're easy to teach. He's going over the equipment the safety procedures in the buddy system underwater now. They're in triples doubles and singles tanks. Bit of everything after their first lesson which by the way lasted five hours underwater and they were below sixty feet might tells the brothers no more diving while he heads back to town jeep to get the tanks fill and he gives them a book on scuba diving. Do read larry tells mike okay teach will be good he had. That's not gonna happen. Mike returns to find the boat empty. And there's bubbles in the water. Larry johnny or diving again just franks shows up and mike and frank get into a fight before mike knocks him down gets into his gear and enters the water to retrieve the two brothers before they kill themselves. Mike finds them underwater. And it looks like they're doing something like the dive master gear exchange. Now they take off and mike goes in hot pursuit for some reason. Johnny turns around rips. Mike mask off. Mike has defined it. Put it on and clear it. Just in time to find larry running out of air. Mike grabs larry and buddy breathes with him to the surface now. Mike is really mad. Schools over another five minutes and all their problems would have been over. They'd be dead his advice. Don't play games with the ocean. The brothers gibb tell mike. They were just practicing. What was in the book. Mike gave them. Mike doesn't really believe them but they take off and as the boat depart mike find frank's wallet on the pier. Apparently he lost it. Doing to fight with mike. He's not frank brennan but frank bronson the plot thickens. Wonder if my god is three hundred dollars the scene now shifts to fisherman's warf and mike is getting the low down on the bronson brothers. They haven't been abalone fishermen for years and there's a fourth brother mark now mike looking for their boat but he spots it on often abandoned peer in oakland and decides that he needs to scuba dive out to see what's up. The board is empty. But before mike can get on board the three bronze brothers show up his only option. Hide under the boat when the engine starts. He grabbed a dangling. Bow-line and hitches a ride. They're up to no good. The pressure is tremendous as he hangs on an fears of the blades of the prop behind them. But the boat finally slows then stops. And larry johnny jump in on scuba and have an extra set a gear. What's going on. Mike surfaces and sees their right off alcatraz. It's two against one. Nothing new for mike nelson. He follows them down to some rocks underwater where they deploy a surface buoy. Then we see a convict one zero nine eight six. That would be mark bronson. He died into the water now. Mike gets it as he sees the convict getting into a wet suit. And putting on the gear. Mike shoots a flare off to signal. The guards on alcatraz hoping it works. Mike is now fully rigged mask wetsuit. Tank regulator weight belt and knife and their high tailing it off against a strong title current. But larry turns and he spots mike. He's going to fight a rearguard action while johnny and markswoman. It's a knife fight. And it's a good one larry's tough clever and slippery but might get behind. Him cuts his air hose and brings him to the surface. And that's where we see. Mike's knife into larry's first stage. The flare did its job. And there's a patrol boat from the island coming on the scene that's one bronson in the bag on the boat. They followed the brothers bubbles and when they catch up mike dies back in lights off a flare and pokes it at the brothers and another massive underwater fight breaks out mike pulls off marks masks shuts air off and shoves him johnny he then puts johnny in a stranglehold and brings the two brothers to the surface. Mike has thwarted escape attempt. Larry says on the boat. It was a pretty good scheme. Yeah mike doesn't think so. Wow this first. Episode new year was jam packed with some great underwater fight scenes. I guess they really wanted to get everyone excited about the show again. And you most definitely will recognize johnny bronson. That was leonard. Nimoy yes mr spock. He shows up again. So that's the alcatraz story from nineteen fifty-nine the first episode of season. Two of seon. Hope you enjoyed it. I'll be back again soon with another installment of seon. It's still alive here on scuba shack radio.

Oppo find x3 pro review

"Embargo for the for the find x three pro lifted this morning this is okposo latest and greatest opo and oneplus share parent company. Bb case so there will be some overlap in what we talk about We don't know a lot about the oneplus series but what we know about the finance three pro. I think will dovetail nicely into the rumors for the oneplus nine. So let's start with you. Miriam you have this phone. It's oboe is not a brand name and north america yet. But i think it's becoming a bit more ubiquitous in europe where alex is you've reviewed one pl- or oboe phones for years now and you're you're among the first people to bring kind of these. Chinese brand opal vivo. Walkway into the purview of us audiences. So when you take a look at the x three pro. What's your first impression. Is this a phone that was made for a worldwide audience or is this more a phone that was made for a chinese audience. That is them being sort of adapted for the west. I think we're at the point now. Where i wanna odd xiaomi to your last i think yeah okay. I think we're the point. Where really these global launches of these phones the me levin from shami recently of course the oppo phoenix three pro and financial three series our global phones through and through. And i think that that's very exciting to me. Now we get the short end of the stick in north america. You're in canada. I'm in the us. Because we still don't get full five g support for our weird bands. And that means that i hesitate to recommend this phone to folks live on the north american continent of this time. I haven't tested the oppo yet on five g. here i'm hoping that as qualcomm becomes more omnipresent not that it isn't already but i mean in terms of its Band support for five g. sub. Six that we get eventually to a point where even buying global phone will just work on some bands in us. Kind of like four g. Lt. foams do and in canada. So i think these phones feel like truly global phones to me. I think that the biggest challenge the biggest obstacle that existed in the pass with these two years ago three years ago. If you imported one was the software. Felt very chinese in the sense that it was. It's like it's hard to explain. But there's a certain flavor to chinese phones if you've ever used one that doesn't have google services on it and that's changed radically. I think caller west which is what apple runs which is an on top of android is even closer now to oxygen. Which is what one plus has which makes sense. Bbq groups same company but in the past. That wasn't always the case. And i think xiaomi's done a very good job as well as an improving it appears to be more you know more universal to the global markets to customers in different countries. So i really have no qualms with this phone i think. It's it's a solid all-round flagship. It brings to the table some things we've never seen before and it on top of that. You know short of the five g support from north. America is a truly global phone so alex. You're the only person among the four of us that uses this phone. Where in the markets intended give us your overview of how fits into the uk european market. And what your first impressions are so whether fit into the market. Whether hoping to the mock i think is in the gap. The is currently in the process of being vacated by wa so there is a a room for another major player in europe and the uk. And i think that's that's where they plan to slow us into already seeing that taking advantage of always current challenges in china whether the now the the number one manufacturer but yeah i think in terms of just the quality the phone. It's it builds on what we saw in the next two pro in little ways last year But the my money this is a little bit of a one. Step forward one step back. Sort of a situation They're all the things. I really enjoyed about the findings to pro- And it it just seemed to have every angle sort of covered in terms of photography and a big part of that is super zoom telephoto in it. Yeah oddly something that a lot of brands of moving away from this year with the exception of while way sometime maybe xiaomi That's something i really miss. Unfor- photography scented phone that seems like a big emission. Especially when you have this weird microscope thing which is fun to play around with but is not going to have anywhere near the practical value In terms like dealer photography assume would get you So that's one sort of disappointments. That i have with it Made worse by the fact that. I'm not a massive found. The microscope The other side air you. i know this is. This is a one. A one point of conflicts on this phone denialism massive out of the microscope. But just before we get to that. The other thing is Find extra prolapsed yet no wireless charging is kind of becoming a table. Stakes feature ever since apple introduced is Now we finally have that but the battery life is just null. Great unstaffed That's the problem right When you getting in the region of twelve to thirteen hours In its its fooling over after about three and a half hours screen on you know especially for me coming from pixel five and show. I've been spoiled a little bit by that phone but Yeah it's haunted. Described the boundary line for this thing is anything but just a big disappointment for me. I would agree with that in the week or so that i've used it especially coming from the galaxy s twenty one pixel five. This is a big battery. that just doesn't perform like a big battery but were still a month out from launch and miriam. I know you haven't spent a ton of time with it but what's your impression of. I wanna come back to the camera. Because i think the the cameras a sort of a question mark for me. Every time i've spoken to one. Plus they give me different answers for why they made the decisions they did around the load out but the phone. Form factor right. They made a big deal about this single piece of glass on the back and how they machine did and you know burned it in killing at seven hundred degrees and puts a magic spell on it to keep its shape and all that. What's your impression of the form of this device. It's really interesting. And i think it's something that a lot of people it's pretty arresting to somebody who's looking at it from the back for the first time. Yeah i love the design. I think it's really unique. A middle worried that you know. It's like form over function in some way. Because i mean at this price point. What's the price anyway. Do we know eleven hundred pounds or twelve hundred years this price. That's fine but i like so gonna be a thousand like it's about the same as the next to last year pros last year. But he's a little bit cheaper but yeah that over thousand dollar price point. I'm okay with the crazy. You know wizards type approach to making the thing with thousands of hours of manufacturing time. Whatever it might be. I think it looks really cool. I've got the kind of grayish color. One agree dark rate lack. I don't know what color that is. But it's looking at a mirror. The whole thing is one piece. It's very cool. My my thing is that i'm really happy. They added wireless charging. That was the thing that i wanted to make a final to pro my daily driver austere and it up with of course oneplus eight pro which is count like again you know the oneplus nine pro is going to be a dead ringer of this phone. So no surprise there like in many ways so the reason i couldn't do it because what trudging was missing. Now that's been remedied by battery life. I haven't tested yet. So i don't know but it might be a result of trying to run everything at one twenty hertz and quad hd. I feel that. If i have to compromise somewhere it's resolution usually my eight pro oneplus a prior run at ten eighty p right and probably run the oneplus nine pro and switched to it at ten pm. Pretty convinced. i'm going to switch to it so wait you're of all the phones that you've used including the galaxy s twenty one. You're still using the eight pro. Is your daily driver. Oh yeah no. Don't i don't want to switch to off and i have so many ops to reinstall and set up a one once a year thing and i have to pick wisely right last year. I decided that i was going to wait. For the pixel five and so i hung hoed with the pixel forty or whatever four acceler my pocket for a while and then i realized that the pixel five was giving giving me what i want and the four or five g was actually the better form but didn't have wireless charging in my opinion so then i went said. I need to make a decision. So i went eight pro and the reason for that is i want i want wanna pixel essentially but i wanna flagship right. So what's the closest you can get to that. You can't get a flagship from google anymore. Anyway i digress but back to the quickey unfortunately have just to go as soon but i feel that for me. What surprised me. The most is the telephone okay. I couldn't get numbers on this. Is it three x two x two x optical and switch to x optical with five x figs. Zoom whatever hybrid. That's hybrid probably looks okay at five x hybrid but probably know better than one hundred eight megapixel. That's trying to do five x kinda like the eleven right. Yeah these over the past It's just fine. I is is fine of five but go beyond five. It's a bit yeah. We had a paris copa. Like five x right. That was different from the oneplus. Eight pro which only had like three x telephoto. So i think the teleph- the the lack of the telephoto disappearing from almost everyone's phones except for you know an iphone doesn't really count because there's only two axe to me. Anything that's to excellence doesn't count. It has to be three more. And ideally it needs to have two of them like the s twenty one ultra or the. We p forty pro plus. Which was my darling camera phone last year. Despite the lack of gm's so you see. That's the reason. Part of the reason daniel that i went with the pro because i knew that if i needed a better camera just pull out a weiwei. P forty plus and carry that with me right and so so then. I guess the party question that i would ask is what would it take for the financial three pro to be your daily driver over the nine. The oneplus nine pro. Because they are so similar to things. And i want that i feel. Actually this might take away from this. Phone is that oppo is holding back for an ultra version. Yes that was my conspiracy theories. Well i feel like we're like because everybody's doing more than a pro. Now i feel that apple is exploring that ultra premium end. And he's gonna come out with a special edition of this phone. That will have a proper periscope telephoto. But what would make me switch would be more see right now. Could live with a two x telephoto. If it's any good. I don't know off to try it but i think for me. It's five g support simply. Because i'm on t. mobile in the us and it's actually beneficial in terms of network coverage for me it's not really beneficial terms of speed by re does give me slightly better performance in some fringe situations and that would be my big. My big request bought the other thing. That i'm interested intrigued. Bob because i haven't really had chance to tessies. Cameras yet. Is their choice of using the two identical fifty megapixel. I am seven six six sensors on the ultrawide and the main to get perfect color. Matching 'cause how's that worked out for you guys so interesting thing. That is the you in theory. That is what happens. But then you have the ai thing that's turned on. Which can you run. I'm not sure by default but if you use it You know it's very useful things in some situations but if you use it then you can get radically different looking switching between the two lenses if you don't have the tent on yet is obviously much closer as a parting thought. I have a feeling that while last year's apple finds pro would have been my choice for that time period of the year that first half of the year until the no twenty ultra came out. Which was my darling phone of the fall. But i switched to it because i was lazy. And of course he has twenty ultra. now is a pretty solid choice for photography. I think until until then until the eight pro last year the findings to pro choice other than wireless charging and five jeep but this year. I'm much more convinced that all want the oneplus nine pro. That's your segue as i'm leaving because for me. The one plus nine pro. F- i don't know all of the details yet but that hassle partnership has me intrigued and more importantly i know it's going to support all the bands properly in the us. And it's going to have wireless charging which i need and it's going to be a slightly smaller phone. I think this year which. I'm very happy about because the eight cross a freaking monster of a beast. It's too big for me over there. So i think the x three profiles held back to me somehow. Apple is i can know what apple can do and be group and this is very good by this. This aversion to telephoto in chinese phones right now xiaomi's doing it too is driving me nuts. I don't get it i want all of it. I don't care about microscope. it's cool. I don't care about a macro because an ultra wide can do macro like it is on this phone. It is on one plus pro phones

The Nazi Hunter: Eli Rosenbaum on Tracking Down the World's Most Wanted Criminals

"Newly appointed attorney. General merrick garland has said he will renew the justice. Department's focus on the threat of white supremacists. Eli rosenbaum knows a thing or two about ideology for forty years. He has helped the department track down and hold former nazis accountable for their world war. Two crimes a law enforcement role that has earned him. The moniker of nazi hunter. Mr rosenbaum with us now. To talk about that moniker. And that mission mr rosenbaum. Welcome to people love the pod. Thank you great to be waiting. So yes you have been called the nazi hunter. I've seen the show on amazon prime. But what does that term mean in real life. Well it's not an expression. I'm particularly fond of because it suggests that this mission is something other than what it is which is professional law enforcement. We are not engaged in on or anything sort but we have been for four decades now simply investigating and taking legal action against participants in nazi crimes against humanity. Your father escaped nazi germany in nineteen thirty eight. I believe. can you share a little bit. About how your family history inspired this work. Y'all my dad. Got out of germany lived in dresden. His brother and his parents and they managed to get visas to this great country and were able to escape in nineteen thirty eight and the attorney. General merrick garland said in his recent testimony. I think all the time about how the united states saved my family my father graduated high school in newark new jersey and then started paying back the united states by going into the united states army and he was sent to north africa and to europe and served in the third infantry division and then when they realized that they actually needed german speakers they transferred to a psychological warfare branch unit in the us. Army the incident that changed my father's life and had a big impact on the shooter was when he was sent to a concentration camp by his commanding officer to go there in a jeep with two other men to see what the army had found the previous day when they liberated dot com word spread quickly in the region that something terrible was there and my dad's co wanted. Know what it was so my father went when i was fourteen years old and we were driving on the new york state through a blizzard heading north and there was nothing left to listen to the radio. We were talking. And i love hearing. My dad's were stories especially the funny ones. Anybody who serves the military s funny stories about food or whatever and then suddenly you said you know. I was sent dot com the day after its liberation and i though fourteen was a time when there wasn't much said really about the holocaust i knew what it was and i said what did you see and i'm like my father staring out the front window because it's pretty treacherous driving and i don't hear anything from my father and i look over to the driver seat and there i see dad with his eyes glistening their welled with tears in his mouth is open and he's trying to tell me and he couldn't speak and it was the first time i ever saw my cry men of that generation didn't want anyone to see them cry usually and we never did speak about it so my beloved father lived you know into this new century and so many many decades and we did speak about work with frequency when i was home but we never returned to the subject of you say you talked about your work with your father. How did that conversation or the job evolve over. The course of forty years work has changed quite a bit. When i started actually as a summer intern back in nineteen seventy nine. Never imagining that. This would become my life's work. We were overwhelmed with investigations. We had inherited the responsibility from the former immigration and naturalization service after the attorney general took it away from them because they had not succeeded and he's had up this new office the office of special investigations in the justice department criminal division and we had more work than could really keep up with and it turned out in the first few years that the we had inherited that actually had the most merit were ones that were based on tips received directly or indirectly from foreign governments. Which at that time was to say. Mostly the soviet union occasionally another government but generally the the soviet union which had mixed motives in these cases. We started being very proactive within a few years and by the five year point and they're after nearly all of the cases that we could develop to the point of prosecution. We're wants dan. We had initiated on our own and the methodology for that was to task our staff historians. We were the only law enforcement entity in the entire hemisphere that had its own complement of historians. They were the people who could dig for the needles and haystacks and we tasks them with responsibility for keeping an eye open for the surviving remnant of personnel records and other documents that identified perpetrators or perpetrators this. They did with great success. And ultimately we assembled more than seventy thousand names of suspects mostly european also some japanese and we ran each of those names one by one against us immigration records and sometimes other records in an effort to see if we could determine whether any of those people came here assuming they hadn't changed their names

"From one. I'm david brown. And this is business. Wars daily on this monday march. Eight jeep is having a tough time of late. I it's super bowl ad. Featuring bruce springsteen came under fire for a mistake that left out a third of michigan on a map and also for not being more religiously inclusive then jeep stopped running the ad after it became public that springsteen had been arrested for driving under the influence. The charges against the boss were dismissed in february and then came a phone call from the chief of the cherokee nation and he had a big ask stop using the tribes name on jeep. Suv's the company has used some version of the name cherokee on its vehicles. For more than four decades after a hiatus jeep introduced its mid sized cherokee suv to the market roughly eight years ago and the jeep grand cherokee has been a perennial favorite among those seeking more spacious. Ride over the years. The company has faced criticism for using the tribes name. But this is the first time. The native american nation has directly called on the automaker to remove the tribal name from its vehicles. It all started when car and driver magazine reached out to the tribe for a comment about the use of the name in light of a new grand cherokee model being introduced the principal chief of the cherokee nation chuck in junior replied via a written statement to the magazine. That said quote. I'm sure this comes from a place that is well intended but it does not honor us by having our name plastered on the side of a car the chief has called on jeep to stop using the tribes name on its. Suv's the company has used the name for more than forty five years including onto suv's but it has said that it will enter dialogue with the tribe about the matter.

"Forward, Shipperley Dodge Jeep Just about anything. I could get it delivered to your door at the right price. And I want to buy your vehicle. The good the bad, the ugly Also, you know the devil give me an opportunity to know exactly what's going on. And they do a great job. So if you want any of those vehicles any kind of those vehicles and don't get complacent with your dealership lots of times you get complacent with the same person. Tell you a quick story by lady goes cold Stone church with me, unless is my show And she says, Well, this is the way I do it. I tell them I'm coming in. I don't spend no time. This is what I want. And call me and tell me what the payment is, and I'll be there and sign up. Well, she started listening my show and so they gave her the payment and they gave her their trade in on her swell. I gave more money for her trade in You know, 1000 more. That's that's a lot of money on that vehicle. Even our she had a high dollar. I mean, a highball. It's vehicle, so she added up the payments and she said, Wow, Manner one and you got a lot better price ring. I saved her $40 a month on 60 months and you know, gave her 1000 more for her vehicle. And the whole deal. When it all went together. She was saying, I think $65 a month on 60 months was $3000 better deal. See, she got complacent with her dealership and her sales person themselves. Person was trying to make the next 23 grand daughter. And so and that was an extra three grand because sometimes I talk to you about all the dealers pack their vehicles. So now the words they packed him 1000 2500. In the South person Don't get paid on that profit there. They have to make over that profit in order, So the dealership is probably making, you know 4500 on the vehicle. How hard you work, 4500. Tell you stories like that every day.

"jeep" Discussed on Cars That Matter

"Nineteen forty one. Congratulations on that. But this isn't your first jeep rodeo. Either your other book called. The jeep was published in twenty fourteen. So i get the feeling that there's something that somebody needs to know about this particular vehicle. You're gonna have the answer. The name of the show is cars that matter. We talk about cars that the kind of changed the automotive landscape got into your book. I learned that the car we're going to talk about today. Really probably helped change the course of history more than any vehicle ever made model t fords volkswagen beatles. I don't care because the jeep as we call the various iterations of them that car that was born in nineteen forty was instrumental in helping to win world war two with it and the heroes of used them the world would be goosestepping today. And that's not an understatement. I think it's difficult for younger generations to really imagine what was at stake back. Then you go back to nineteen forty four. I think of my dad. He was nineteen years old blown off the deck of an aircraft carrier the lady gulf which was the largest naval battle in human history. Later on when the american forces occupied japan. He was there the only thing he had the really kind of a lifeline for survival was a forty five automatic without any live ammo in it at a jeep. So that's a great way talk about a car. that really really made an impact. What got you interested in. These things all started back in nineteen ninety nine. Believe it or not. I've been at this for twenty years. And at that time i was beginning to write screenplays. Believe it or not. I live in exceptionally exciting life. So i was watching the history channel shock. Nothing better and they had on the big greeks of combat jeep and just before commercial break. They said the first jeep was created in one thousand nine hundred forty by bankrupt car company in butler pennsylvania and the astonishing short timeframe forty nine days. And i'm like. What is that all about. So i watched after the commercial break and found out that was basically the case and i said that would make a great screenplay and it's true is guys had nothing bankrupt given this impossible task all sorts of conflict or salts of things to overcome the world hanging in the balance and may june july nineteen forty with the battle of britain. So that's how. I started pursuing it. And i started researching it i worked on the screenplay for about twelve years to eleven. We're never able to get the movie made. Despite a lot of efforts to eleven. I decided i really wanted this story to get out there so we decided say we. It's my late wife. And i that we would write a book and that ended up being the first book project management history. And the first achieve. You said i really gone. And deep into it. The key that way the both books possible was a court case. The federal trade commission versus willis overland motors inc. That was actually don during the war where it's literally an ultimate deposit of early cheap history and when is able to find that in the archives and all the materials that was their story was there to be told and we told the first won't just the ban on b. r. c. in the first book and then for the eightieth anniversary we decided to change it from a project management book into a history. Book and add willis and ford to the mix plus the competition between the three through about may forty one because the first three gps the ones i mentioned the b. r. c. the willis and the fort were all built in eighteen. Forty the more. I found out about the story. The more amazing it becomes so you really have a phd in jeep and for those of us who have barely graduated from kindergarten. Let's go back to the beginning for minute kind of set the stage. I was reading your book. Some amazing stuff. And by the way the first chapter is really a great primer on the history of american politics from woodrow wilson to the beginning of the war world war. Two it really set the stage and got me to understand that. America was very pacifist nation. They had very little military infrastructure. And i guess by the time. Nineteen forty rolls around. The germans are fine tuning their blitzkrieg. Lightning war the. Us army was still practically using mules and carts to haul stuff around. I couldn't even believe that. That's absolutely correct and your synopsis of the inter war years spot on you had the decade of the nineteen twenties. We didn't really have a major threat to world peace so they called the peace decade. We talk a little bit about that. Then in the nineteen thirties. You just had the slight going on called the great depression. That's right it seriously. There was no money. They were spending the money on the new deal on domestic programs. The army was starved so by the time he got thirty eight thirty nine. The american military was ranked like in the world behind bulgaria and meanwhile the clouds of war were gathering fast and europe. The writing was on the wall. Swastikas were everywhere. And of course then. The japanese bombed us on december eight nineteen forty one and i guess they recognize the need for a jeep right before that happened and the late thirties especially infantry and we document this in the book. They did a lot of testing on vehicles. They came up with a mormon harrington four by four for what the infantry was looking for but through some challenges in the procurement process to put it nicely. They didn't get what they wanted. You also needed a vehicle that could be used across the using arms had that level of versatility not only infantry but calvary field artillery ordinance and so by may of nineteen forty the middle of the month two weeks into hitler's blitzkrieg and the low countries of france. They had a meeting at camp hallerberg maryland. With all the using arms looking at a vehicle that could replace the mule the horse for transporting small payloads and troops and they needed something between the motorcycle and sidecar and a half ton truck and at that meeting on may twenty first nineteen forty they had nothing zip nada. Nothing on the drawing board nothing and concept and that's where they stood then. The miracles started to happen. You mentioned three. Companies and thought jeep initially was a jeep. But apparently you're talking everything. From bantam to ford to willis so one of the guys at that may meeting in the infantry goes back to his office and the american bantam car company which would build the first jeep. Their representative and the gentleman's name was colonel. Oh seth he goes back to his office and the banner representatives sitting in his window waiting for him and he comes in and the short version of the conversation is the gentleman was named by charles pain the and representative e says. I'm looking for a robert. How we of the harry machine-gun carey which is documented in the book. We need to talk about vehicles. We think we can build one for you win. Osa says the guy that you need to talk to and so they came up and two weeks with a general characteristics. They needed for vehicle. That would beat infantries need which was needed way about thirteen hundred pounds. Low silhouette carry three people be able to mount a machine gone so on and so forth. The memo is dated june nine thousand nine hundred forty exactly four years to the day before d day. That's what makes a day. I think you said your dad was in the late gulf so two weeks. They came up with the general characteristics for vehicle and then the story continued from there. Let's put this in perspective for a guy my age. I mean i remember when studebaker was around. But that's about it. I certainly don't remember any bantams. What the heck was abandoned. The american ban of car company was the successor to accompany called the american austin car company england right but they had an american or is that correct. Yeah little tiny tiny tiny cars and they built tiny cars. The austin seven in the twenties and was very successful in europe in sir. Herbert austin in the late twenties wanted to bring to america. Well of course he brings it right at the beginning of the depression. American austin goes bankrupt for years later the company's bought by exceptional gentlemen name roy evans read constitutes the company in nineteen. Thirty five thirty six. They tried to sell small cars late a depression. There's no market for it. So in the spring of one thousand nine hundred forty america ban of car company which was the premier small car company in the country is completely utterly totally bankrupt. They have nothing and they're only last shot to stay in existences to get a government contract day. We're doing the hail mary pass. Before they invented that in the seventies and football clearly the bantam car company had experience building lightweight cars and we talk about this jeep. Being on you say fifteen hundred pound vehicle. That was one of the bugaboos in the whole procurement. And i was a project manager so robert. This is a requirement. You don't wanna have developed this way. The army decided we need something between this motorcycle and sidecar and a half ton truck. So it's five hundred pounds of two thousand pounds so this vehicle's just going to magically way without talking to anyone that would actually build it it's got have to thirteen hundred pounds. Nobody could.
