"So again, you know, Elon Musk to me does not represent the picking himself up by his own bootstraps success that he portrays in the media so much of this is manicured out of this weird libertarian fantasy of lone wolf ism and yet almost all of this is built on piggybacking on public infrastructure and public funds. And then when he gets involved in other companies business, it seems like his contributions have a direct personal stake in them. So he gets involved with Twitter and makes a lot of noise about Twitter and I guess his stock portfolio got healthier, so that's great. But out of the Twitter post, this is coming from, I can not pronounce the new CEO of Twitter's name all, a raw wall. I am so sorry. At some point, I'm going to look that up. I do not know how to pronounce that. Posted an image on Twitter. The board and I have had many discussions about Elon joining the board and with Elon directly. We were excited to collaborate and clear and clear about the risks. We also believed that having Ilan is a fiduciary of the company where he like all board members has to act in the best interests of the company and all our shareholders was the best path forward. The board offered him a seat. We announced on Tuesday that Alan would be appointed to the board contingent on a background check and formal acceptance. Ilan's appointment to the board was to become officially effective on April 9th, but Elon shared the same, but Elon shared the same morning that he will no longer be joining the board. I believe this is for the best. We have and will always value input from our shareholders whether they are on our board or not. Elon is our biggest shareholder and we will remain open to his input. We had to look into his business to have him on the board, and then he said, nah, brah. Was Easton says you have to say his name correctly to be added to the board. Maybe that was that was the issue there. And dust a Dory. One, you just hate people with money. I mean, at some point I would like to be a person with money, but not if it comes with these types of shenanigans. So Elon Musk is not going to be on the Twitter board. And I guess that's fine. I don't know, social media has become such a dumpster fire. Literally the only reason I primarily use Twitter is because it's one of the few remaining social networks that allows me just to organize by time. I do not want a cultivated feed of topics that might interest me. I want to see exactly what's happening on that network when I open it. That is such a low bar. It's not that I love Twitter. It's that. It's literally just that last time consideration drives me nuts. Yeah, Dave burns, exactly that. We have to do due diligence. And he was like, nah, man. So on to some more exciting news, this one really lit me up in the nerdiest way possible. I have skipped so many stories about the exciting new battery tech that's just going to revolutionize mobile consumer electronics. And then you get into the article and it's like, well, this is super hypothetical. It's extremely exotic, and if it ever comes to fruition or is delivered at scale, it's going to take like 20 years. And we've been having the same, well, 20 years from now, we're going to have this amazing new battery technology for the last 40 years. And none of those exotic technologies ever really seem to make it. But when I see a company pairing with NASA, there's just something about that that gets my hope up a little bit that this is potentially a little bit more legit than some of those other just researchers and a lab have demonstrated this with graphene. You know, like, cool. But make it. And if you can't make it at scale, then it's not a real technology. So this is coming by way of tech explorer. Let me get back into screen shared Japan's Nissan plans, I speak real good and say all the words. Japan's Nissan plans game changing electric car batteries. Nissan is working with NASA on a new type of battery for electric vehicles that promises to charge quicker and be lighter yet safe. The Japanese automaker said on Friday. The all solid state battery will replace the lithium ion battery now in use for a 2028 product launch and a pilot plant launch in 2024 according to Nissan. Now these are their goals. The all solid state battery is stable enough to be used in pacemakers when finished it will be about half the size of the current battery and fully charge in 15 minutes instead of a few hours. And so this is heating up. This is a collaboration between Nissan and NASA. They both need better battery technologies. We're talking about putting things up into space and safely driving cars around on roads. What makes me excited here, Nissan's EV plans keep getting interrupted. When the Nissan leaf first came out, I took a test drive, a friend of mine got one. And for the longest time, it was like one of my highest viewed videos on YouTube. It's sold now. They get how I shot it. I was trying to do driving footage with phones on suction cup mounts. It just looks awful. I mean, the video really does look terrible, but it was sort of a firsthand account. Like what it was really like, driving around Southern California with a Nissan leaf. And if we remember back, it was right before the housing collapse. So we're talking like, I don't know, 2006 to 2007. Nissan had these really grand plans of making like a significant percentage of their fleet EVs. And then the housing market and the economy collapsed. And then all those plans kind of quietly went away and Nissan went into a holding pattern, sort of recycling the same drive trains and chassis with minor cosmetic differences for years. I mean, it was like 6 years of them putting out the same car with tiny little differences. To hear them say that they're going to be getting a pilot plant up in 2024, at least to me means we're looking at a return to some of their previous strategy and trying to electrify more of their fleet and especially we know in the EU and Canada there are probably going to become stricter regulations on internal combustion engines. The U.S. will probably lag behind because we're terrible at that kind of stuff. And then moving forward, we're going to see the big showdown, especially in Japan and that sort of Asian area. Of the fight going maybe hydrogen versus EV for infrastructure. What's really going to pick up more of our infrastructure funds. But if Nissan can work with NASA on a faster charging solid state battery, the biggest problem is going to be tooling up warehouses is tooling up factories to manufacture at scale. Obviously, there are so many unknowns, what type of technologies going to be going into this, what type of materials will we still be dependent on extremely rare earth elements, what is the recycling capacity of a solid state battery, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But Nissan and NASA, that at least to me says there's a glimmer of something real there. So this is one to keep an eye on..

"I ended up getting an eighty super. Because i couldn't get a three hundred z. Thirty one three hundred time But yeah man. I mean models. It's it's definitely shifted over the years to become something instead of just getting done. Because i to look at the car to. I want to enjoy the process of building. What i'm saying to me. It's a weird type of zen thing at night. That i kind of turn on a movie you know maybe i pour myself a drink and you know you very slowly kind of detail various pieces so the one. I'm working on right now. I've got a subaru. Xt allegation from the late eighties and the box. Art to the box looks fantastic. Yeah and i- custom mixed color. Try to match the interior as closely as i could. But i've got a bunch of paint. And i've just been you know trying to make it look as realistic as possible. And that's the fun in it that you just kinda sit there and you end up watching a ninety minute movie and maybe you've detailed one large part but that's the fun like it is the slow contemplative process there. There are quite a few people that i follow both in facebook groups and on youtube That that build models but I'll i'll have to try to recommend to you hereafter the podcast Read hey maybe we can even try to get them on the podcasts. At one point. I know one of the guys I think it's on models on facebook. He did a fiero pontiac. Fiero that looks. I mean if you could shrink down to one twenty fifth year size you could get in it and drive it away. The detail work on that thing was just phenomenal. why before we're kind of getting off z's we are and i apologize for anyone who is skipping around this episode. We are now getting back to z. We are getting back to the. I'll wrap it up by saying i'm going to build a model of z thirty one three hundred z. X. just because i want. I want wanna detail every single little button in that interior but So what we're in researching this episode for. Today i've found. This website is called z home dot com and they have kind of very granular information about production of the nissan z. Cars and i was fascinated to find this. Because i didn't realize how low relatively speaking sales for these cars were so first year of the nineteen seventy forty z. Sixteen thousand units okay. I can understand a first year. It what is that merely devils. What sixteen yeah. Yeah damn near. Nearly doubles to thirty three thousand units in seventy one and then jumps to fifty two thousand almost fifty four almost fifty three thousand units seventy two like it was a success. But i want to show you something else that so. We're talking about seventy two. I mean i don't think think that's bad at all for the context of the time in the united states. You still had. Ford general motors chrysler. Those were the cars. You bought the the imports from japan from europe. They weren't really hitting much american. Still bought predominantly american. So when you say fifty four thousand in seventy two. That's bad at all but now you look at nine hundred seventy two so. This is courtesy of car and driver put together. I i'll linked to this in our our post. But a hundred and twenty five thousand mustangs were sold. Sixty eight thousand camaros. So okay you could say fifty two thousand to sixty eight thousand. Yeah that's not too far off. But i mean we love haunting honey five thousand mustangs in one thousand nine hundred seventy two. And that was at a point where mustang sales were starting to drop a little bit because the car was big and the fuel crisis the the emissions were starting to become a factor. So i mean yeah. That's that's a low number for for mustang. Actually and so what i. Another thing that i thought was interesting here. So i'm going to switch back if you're watch on youtube you'll be able to see this. So this is nineteen seventy eight nineteen seventy nine Starting nineteen seventy seven nineteen seventy eight production grows to fifty four thousand five hundred ninety. Four z cars in the us for nineteen seventy seven. You look at and you compare it to mustang.

"A little less horsepower or forty grand with a little bit more horsepower. And when you get in the nissan z. it's a nissan. You get in the toyota supra. It has toyota branding and it's a good car. But i mean it's not toyota. I think i think nissan is in a good position to really grab some of the market with with z. I mean it's we know it's never going to be a huge volume seller right. It's a niece sports car. Let's take a look here at the interior nubrik wicks. Just the cylinder. Supra starts at forty nine ninety. Okay so ten grand more okay. I mean that's that's a big. That's big difference. Man yeah for for nissan to come in with their own vehicle with their own parts. I don't care that it's it's the three seventy underneath. I really don't care. they did. I think they've done a really good job on the interior. We're looking at it now. With a digital instrument cluster careers a strong point and they still incorporate the three little dials right on top of the dash. That's a neat touch. And also that something. You can't get with the super six speed manual transmission. We know we know that. The automatic modern automatics the dual clutch automatics. They can shift far far quicker than a human ever could from a sheer standpoint of performance. You can't beat that but and you you will be able to get an optional nine speed automatic with this. Yes you'll you'll be able to the only option you can with but with four hundred horsepower. I i i would happily take the speed. 'cause i'm looking. I'm not looking to nab a an extra two tenths of a second off of a laptop in this car wash would but i wouldn't be doing it to try to win a race. I would just be doing it to try to feel good for you. Feel good about myself right. I mean we could be looking at the last. And maybe i'm getting a little melodramatic here. We could be looking at the last proper to seat internal combustion driver's car here maybe with with z. Is that anybody else overly dramatic necessarily especially in this price. Point like you're gonna have your supercars that do it certainly. But i mean hearing that next-gen mustang might go all wheel drive. We've definitely been hearing this next and mustang is going to go hybrid chimeras dead We haven't heard hide her hair revenue miata..

The new annex type s is here and it got overshadowed again and there's an updated lincoln navigator because we have to have our big luxury. Suv's in the world so zippy's ears is podcast time. I'm christopher smith mr chris. Bruce across when zippy's xeres zippy's xeres zippy zip. Nissan z zippy zippy zippy's ears if flows off the tongue. It could be a thing. I don't know if it flows off at tongue but okay. Yeah let's get this year started. We'll just go go with me here a little bit. It's been a long week and a half zippy xeres. i love it. Love it which let's start with the newsy because it's finally here let question mark. I always say that. Because the three fifty three seventy z of been around for ages. Obviously the three seventy eight took over for three fifty. It's just the fact that nissan just refuse to update it. Do anything with it it. They just left it to wither on the vine and i think when it debuted it was fun. It was certainly. Oh yeah it was competitive even but it they just refused to do anything with it and i mean aside from some graphics and some special editions with some more that doesn't count it doesn't count and for the record i love this. The three seventy s. I like it better than the three fifty. But when you let it go for a decade yeah so but newsies here and i mean the bones are kinda still the same underneath. But i don't i don't care honestly bruce i love it. I don't love it as much as i wanted to love. It's I i still find the square front a little awkward in appearance. I wish they'd round that a little bit more. Maybe shrunken down. I know they were trying to go for the original to forty look but that front grille on the news e it's just it's a little too rectangular it's just a little too sharp. I think it needs to be a little bit smaller but in my mind it's a minor. Gripe i think this thing looks great and i can't wait to drive. It may be just in a bad mood today. I don't know man but it just looks like three seventy z with a nose. Job to me like i wanna like it. I wanna like pat nissan on the back for this like good job. You finally brought out a new one. And i don't know i just i mean it's the bones are the same. We know that we know that the bones are the same nissan. They're not in a position to really engineer. A completely new car from the ground up they are not and really i mean i don't think the bones of the three seventy z were bad despite their age. I think it's still a fund drive sports car. It just needed a major update on the outside. It needed a significant update for the interior. And i mean that's that's what we have here right. Yeah that's i mean. When i mean when you look at the interior scott's i mean it has the the full digital instrument cluster now and it's has the i have to look at my notes for this because this is still coming in. Kind of new force the senator. Tom screen standard is eight inches. I believe we'll hear anybody can get a nine optional touchscreen and you would be so kind to pull up. Some photos for me and i will read our listeners. Some specs just them an idea of what's happening here very good very good but can't quite do both at once so yeah. I don't have enough hands so it is arriving in two trim levels we're gonna get spent sport and performance in addition to that the performance is going to be available in the z. Proto spec Bear only gonna make two hundred forty of those. You're clever nissan. Good job franklin doesn't realize. Yeah we gotcha regardless of which when you get a twin turbocharged three liter v six. That's making four hundred horsepower and three hundred fifty pound feet of torque. That's an engine. That more or less exists already in the nissan stable in the infiniti models. You can get that in their redline red. Forget it's either red light or red models but that's an engine that exists. But you know now you're getting into a smaller sportier car so that's not i you know. I'm not knocking it. I'm just saying it's not. They didn't engineer a brand new engine for this vehicle. Which honestly. I'm fine with that y- i'm fine with that again. We're talking about a company that it hasn't been new shape. They have some limited resources here so the fact that they even have anything at all i think. Bravo to them. And i know listeners. No i'm not particularly fond of supra the the amd or the new one which is really just a coach bill. Bmw nissan did this on their own. They didn't they didn't go pull a car from somebody else. They pulled their own car and reset. They had and they made it as a nicest possibly could which i am fine with that and we don't know we don't know specific pricing on this vehicle yet right so we numbers have been thrown around that. It's going to start at around forty grand and that's gonna start around forty grand at four hundred horsepower there. There's no there's no four cylinder model here. So i said when i said in the beginning the news z. is here and it's coming for supra. i mean you're you're getting the six cylinder super starting. What around fifty is isn't north of fifty. I think it's right at fifty right around fifty so you can have your two door to seat. Japanese sports car for fifty grand with.

Unraveling The Death of 'The Toxic Lady', Gloria Ramirez

"When she got to the hospital. Glorious heart was beating at a rate of more than one hundred beats per minute. Why did they need to fibrillation her. That seems like jumpstarting a car. That's already running hot. You know also. It just seems to me that pumping someone full of sedatives and then zapping. Their heart with electricity is a weird sequence of events. I'm sure they knew what they were doing. It's just as a lay person sitting here at my desk. It seems weird also can only hope the iv. The paramedics administered in the ambulance was to take blood because by the time nurse. Cain went to get a blood sample. Gloria was so hopped up on medical grade goof-balls that her blood probably would have gotten anyone within fifteen feet of it high. Wouldn't they wanna check someone's blood before dumping a whole bunch of shed into it like maybe make sure she didn't already take a bottle full of valium before giving her more valium next. Let me just ask why. The decision was to move the entire. Er to the parking lot. If dr our cia thought gloria was the problem why not just move gloria outside. Wouldn't that have been easier than moving the entire er department it's possible. Show a thought. The problem was coming from the er itself like the ventilation system or whatever but then. Why didn't gloria get evacuated as well and look. I'm sure dr ocho made whatever decisions he thought were best in the moment. I can't think straight under that kind of pressure which is why dr ochoa is a doctor. And i am a podcast art. Could you imagine getting rushed to the er for like i dunno hemorrhaging blood or something. The ambulance gets to the parking lot out front. And it's like well here. We are literally right here. And there's just rows of gurneys with moaning people and some doctors like who's nissan altima is this. I'm hanging an. Iv bag from the roof rack. The official cause of gloria ramirez death was kidney failure due to cervical cancer or possibly heart failure. I'm telling you the reporting on this case is all over the place.

And it's put away difference. But i love that about her. Our houses gorgeous. I love that about when we travel. She has a different style of travelling than i do. So she sees things different than me. You have to honor the other and they have to feel honored in that individuality for the relationship to go deeper so always trying to do that. She's trying to do that. And somehow we both feel very honored in our relationship. Because i see her she sees me and it's okay that we're different and our biggest fights are expect each other to think the same or be the same or do the same doesn't make sense. I think this is a really profound honor. The other honor their individuality and honoring it means accepting it not judging it honoring it means being to it but it also celebrating. Cheer them on. If you could give a speech about your spouse or partner you should talk about all the unique things about themselves and be so prideful joyous. Happy about that but also let me start with you. I can immediately tell in seven to nine minutes in a mediation. Because i always make sure ask question. I always make sure to ask this question. There number mediation they're fighting. They're coming together. Brennan self solve this situation and sometimes it's court referred like literally. It's legal that the process has not just. Hey can you help us coach. It's not this has been like court referred. And what i learned in those processes acid very simple question. How lucky do you feel. This is your partner.

The garage I don't right now I've had in the past I've had a to forty. I was in the publishing business out of Grad School and had a company car, which was a two eighty Z X. Turbo I lived in Denver Colorado. It snows in Denver an incredible amount I had to put illiterate in the back because that car just went nuts in the snow but that was my company car, which was wonderful. Car I also had three. Hundred. Z X. I worked for Steve Millen before work for Nissan, it was the fact that I worked for Mellon that got me hired by Nissan. We built a tribute car for the Twenty Fifth Anniversary Nissan Z which we call the SM Z. had a different aerodynamic look and big breaks your tires. It really was a nice nice car and I had Z. then three. I don't have one now but I really would like to get one of the new Z's that comes. Out What am I right now at sixty three corvair, which is the one that was in a movie called Zodiac bought that from the studio I've got a sixty five ranchero just Tristan got a sixty five thunderbird special landau sixty, six, Mustang convertible and I have a seventy three triumph tr six and then I, have a two thousand fifteen Camaro who says in an Audi alr- boy you've got quite a stable there and there's a Lotta great American iron fellow WHO's an expert. On. Japanese. Cars I. Think you're definitely waving the flag for General Motors and a little bit of Ford here and there I know that's a nice collection of cars, and of course, the corsairs is a of an outlier another car that doesn't get all the respect due for being such a forward thinking design I loved the Corvair my dad had a corvair. So I'd love rear engine cars yet to Renault Dolphins. Oh. Good heavens boy you don't see those on the road anymore. corvair. So I don't know why he liked rear engine cars but then I ended up by one too because they are fun to drive. That's why. There's nothing more fun and sometimes surprising than the rear engine car. But when it comes to classic looks and style I think it's hard to beat the to forty especially when you put it in the context of the early seventies and see what was happening to automotive designs. Then you can put that car up side-by-side with any type or any Ferrari from the era and it stylistically really. Does hold its own a great testament to a company that took a hell of a chance with a market that had no idea were coming. Oh I. Agree. It was a gamble but it really paid off I want to talk about your book for a minute peed because your book is really a cut above in the reign of automotive books it's beautifully designed by the way it's not Only well, laid out put. It's really unattractive design aesthetic. When it comes to the information man, you drill deep for anyone who wants to know literally the nuts and bolts of the C- car history. Your book has it. It really goes deep into the crevices and pulls out all the little goodies that would probably otherwise never be told and someone who's been involved with Nissan for quite a. While I appreciate that I love cars. I have always loved cars since I was a kid and to be able to be in the automotive business for as long as I have been was just a dream of mine. I started my automotive journey back in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, five working for CCA A and then I had a stint working for selene helping him market and sell his. mustangs then I left after his indycar program exploded and I went to work for Ford and did some work for them that got me at Boban, durant and I worked at his school I performance driving and Phoenix right when he moved there and spent three years there then got hired on at Steve Melons and that got me into Nissan, and after that I worked in the advertising business. and. Then became a teacher. So I've had a very diversified career but writing has been fundamental to all of that. I teach writing. Now teach writing for advertising, teach copywriting I, teach marketing, but being able to follow my passion has absolutely critical. That's a great career arc from sec a motorsport advertising really kind of covers the gamut when it comes to cars, you mentioned the fact that the. Spiritual Guide all this you talk Katayama, Mr K. relived to be honored five. So he did something right his signature autograph was always Love Cars Love People love my boy if I could take a little piece of that and apply that to my own life I would be so grateful amp. So grateful be able to have written this book and I thank the folks in motorboats from getting. This. Opportunity in the folks at Nissan for letting me put into words compassion that they have with this car and celebrate it. But that to me is important to a writer and Jewish person like I said was passionate about cars as I am I live in the dream thanks to Pete have an author of Nissan Z fifty years of exhilarating experience for joining us today on cars that matter.

Jerry for dirt Brenda. Didn't you actually find that different? Parts of the country had different hues to the dirt. Different different stuff. So but in the end the value of what was the average dirt color. But this drifter weird I was like. I'm going to get like hepatitis but you did translated and I think you've you know dirt from Arizona had already color in dirt from Detroit was more blue or green or you know different Florida kind of creamy. Yeah Walked into the studio. I'm with the executive team. And they fly. They WanNA bring me through the design studio because they're so proud of the work you're doing in your over in a corner pilot going through pilots. Are these two are making paper. I'll over here. They would have thought this is like an insane asylum here but there was no. I think about okay. Here's another. This is a very jerry influenced or so when we did when he led US. Well encouraged us to do other things. One of the things I do is reach out to airstream and through a long story that I don't need to tell here but the to take the value out of it. Is that one of the beautiful things about an airstream let I learned through. Establishing this relationship is that when you walk into airstream you see yourself in the airstream because the airstream changes color. It's aluminum so if you walk in with a red jacket airstream turns Red Trans. How do you translate that into a car? Well go ahead. This sleeping bag story tells us this is a great one on. Yes we did. A road trip with airstream. They gave us three years to tell the story. She didn't tell them. Stories Soup Amazing This was another thing that probably wouldn't happen. Nowadays are not in a in a different. Imagine the basically our study was getting remodeled so Being placed to house all of white studio which was the color studio so we got We talked to airstream I think we got like three or four three three trailers and they were all empty inside so literally the entire color design team plus Brian and who else we all went like across the country to the SEM factory picked up empty air streams that then we gotta design when coming back. Someone told we we kept on them on the way home. Kept in four thousand miles Hey Hey not having never toed thing and then live on my God. None of us three three trailers. We'd never told anything. We probably drive back and the walkie talkies and handles the room to help people what happened to in Missouri morning. You woke up so yeah Brian. I almost didn't survive because think the heater was broken. So we're like totally in the freezing cold sleeping in these super green like sleeping in the morning we woke up on is amazing. The whole ceiling had like this incredible reflection of the green. The green trailer had turned green inside from the reflecting the green suit sleeping bag. So that isn't that inspire the headliner inspire. You inspired a couple of things that inspired the concept car that we did that year for the auto show which was a vehicle that had a trailer on it but it also what we did was we. It was the first time that personal content was coming into vehicle. So if you remember like iphone came out. This is the first time you could bring your content into your car and not like when the com- already decorated or whatever I mean we're stuff you brought in and you wanted to use in the car exactly so we translated that I- literal analog idea of car changing color to a vehicle that change personality when you got into it with your own the time it was like your music your video content stuff that we're doing now in cars the where you get into the vehicle and it knows you knows who you are and it changes its personality for You. So that idea really. For Nissan Nissan Is Studio. That came out of that morning of uncle waking up in the in the green freezing uncomfortable totally frost on the inside of the trailer and realizing this epiphany and that begat a whole host of inspiration inspired. I think in general to like to meet always mazing because could totally go to the studio and do all kinds of research. I remember we used to go to junkyards or I mean all these different places. We went over to like road trips whenever the jury. Where's your team today? Here They're in a trash dumpster somewhere here. They're over to school talking to kids and crayons here all the way across the country. But I I always felt like you know you really not going to get the idea desk and that he really you have to go really feel like he promoted that down to lunch base for a longer. They were an hour and a half and people were like playing volleyball. They're always outside competing. Not GonNa get the idea that you're swat. Here's what I'd like to see. I'd like to once again. We've blown past our normal half hour show here and I feel like you've only even touched the surface you guys stick around and do partout here and talk about then out of this incredible experience. What was born? How did it change the industry or has it gone back to what it was time? Brenda can we can. We can keep going. Yeah Oh yeah I love. We usually due to run out of time and got totally all right. Just getting on a roll now. Yeah this is the best. I'm going to leave it there. final thought is that you can't. It doesn't come to you at your desk. The idea doesn't come to you. You have to go out and find it. Sounds like he more than anybody else. You guys knew encouraged you to get out and find it. Oh Yeah we are the designers. We are today because of him. Totally one thing we absolutely and I think is such a part of WHO Jerry was in. This was jerry was a dichotomy a huge dichotomy. He was into like the culture. The Arts Music. I mean very very high brow stuff would take us to the symphony and take us to place places. I never had been in my life. You know So he was part of this on the other hand you know joy daresay they pull my finger was the big about both all my things but everybody who's ever had a dad knows what I need about Jerry and Tom for for me as a young designer coming in. Let's say in the last couple of years of his career. Jerry had so much talent that I I went to work knowing every day. I would never quite be as good as Jerry. You and you aspired to be that good right and that's really something like you really respect and admire the people you work for that you want to be as good as them that talent sort of overseas he can pull my finger. Kinda guy because he's so. The talent speaks for itself. Well we're GONNA pull the finger on this one here and we're going to wrap it up and we'll come back for two and talk about talk about the legacy. So what did he create?

The car giant Nissan have been facing corruption charges in Japan but then over Christmas he managed to flee the country by reportedly being smuggled out out in a musical instrument case. This was not about justice. I felt I was a hostage of a country that I have served for seventeen years last week. He broke cover at an extraordinary press conference in Beirut where he called out former colleagues and and the entire Japanese justice system innocent of the charges. If he thinks he's innocent he should be in the Japanese in Israel and nothing about Carlos and has ever been ordinary. Seems like he was always destined to do something in the car industry. There are reports that as a young boy. He was able to distinguish different types of cars from the sound of their horns from the Guardian. I'm an Gristana today in focus.

"In March of nineteen ninety nine as most of the automotive industry worldwide rolled their collective eyes or nose takeover of Nissan Carlos going the young Turk well actually Lebanese he was putting together his Nissan revival plan and he would announce that in October of nineteen ninety nine how outrageous was it going said he would have Nissan back in the black in two thousand and operating profit of four point five percent by the end of fiscal year two thousand two along with paying off half of Nissan's total death at the same time in fact going said if he did meet those goals he would resign his position well that was vintage going first twenty one thousand workers at Nissan would lose their jobs and most of those in Japan five factories would be shuttered Nissan's listed valued suppliers would be slash to improve quality and get lower prices and truly prize divisions of Nissan like their aerospace division would be sold off to reduce the debt in promotion by seniority yeah that was over as was the Cairo to system or Japanese firms and suppliers were all in a row over then as if he hadn't panicked everybody in Japan enough yet Carlos going made English the official language at Nissan any included executives from Europe and North America for the first time in strategy meetings for that year there were no and Carlos going to go over Nissan the Japanese automaker lost six point five billion dollars the very next year Nissan earned two point seven billion that's a nine point two billion dollar turnaround in the first twelve months and by two thousand two the sun's operating profits were nine percent double the international auto industry that year as promised by fiscal year two thousand two Nissan was out of debt and the next year it's operating profit margins were over eleven percent well certainly the entire automobile industry was noticing the Renault Nissan alliance things were already going badly for Daimler with Chrysler and Mitsubishi by then not to mention the fact Hyundai had told Daimler to take a hike and sell their shares in the Korean company even in Japan those who probably whispered beneath their breath for goings karma to catch up to him even though they had to be astonished with what he had accomplished in that short of the period now the twenty one thousand workers who lost their jobs they probably did not like him much as stated Carlos going was a force of nature and as such he didn't suffer fools gladly now that's too nice he didn't suffer fools at all and he would dismiss one in seconds from his presence but you can argue with his results and believe it or not he did have some loyalty in two thousand five Kirk Kerkorian bought right at ten percent of the shares of General Motors he installed one of his lackeys on the board and did everything he could to get General Motors to merge with Renault Nissan the idea is that would bring Carlos going into running the entire operation worldwide well that obviously didn't happen but the next year two thousand six the Ford family sent out feelers and a formal offer to Carlos going to come and turn their company around Ford being on the down side of six years of bill Ford's personal mismanagement going told Ford if they would make him CEO of the company and chairman of the board he would at least consider their offer he knew the Ford family would one day rather watch their car company fail completely before they ever relinquish control Ford to someone competent but along the way going was also made headed for now in France to so now he's running two major car companies a half world apart well the same time trying to enlarge the alliance by getting Mitsubishi into it then he wanted to bring the world over to electric cars he was even appointed chairman of auto vase in Russia when we're no bother stake in that in two thousand eight well if you think about it that would be a stop along the way between Paris and Tokyo if you had a private jet but maybe it was two thousand twelve when things started going south going signed a new employment contract with Nissan that year one that had the Japanese automaker pain for homes and apartments in Tokyo Paris Amsterdam Rio and bay route later this will be used against him by his successor Hiroto sack how're as reasons the going was abusing his few dish Yuri duties at Nissan the problem was all of that was in his work contract and sidecar wheel himself signed off on it in two thousand twelve Sunoco while also said going misstated his deferred earnings now the SEC in America agree and without admitting guilt finds her play in Japan their version of the SEC made the same claims with Nissan agreeing that they would settle it but this isn't about the theft of Nissan's money this is about how to clear or not declare deferred earnings there are charges it going head Nissan distributors in the Middle East front private companies for him and his kids no one going to nice that Japanese prosecutors have been remarkably quiet on those charges but they did come to America and interrogate his kids on the other hand it was found that other executives at Nissan including her road to assign a call while also took bonuses any legally posted them as deferred earnings but it should be noted those individuals weren't charged either how much of the case was laid out against Carlos going that very first day has already proven to be nonsense particularly wants his work contract from two thousand twelve was made public Hiroto Sakhon our who took over for going at Nissan then thrown out he was likely did H. for embarrassing the company and Japanese prosecutors would charges they were found out to be no such thing there in lies the problem two point Carlos goings position that he was set up by nationalist inside of Nissan to keep a full merger between Renault and Nissan from happening really has some validity to it but it's also the charges nobody's heard anything about the ones they're keeping close to their vest they could tell a different story in time like getting Nissan distributors to fund private companies for you the card is going skipped out of Japan this week flown in one private jet to Istanbul Turkey and then on another to Lebanon claiming he was escaping undress prosecution in Japan insiders clothes strewn claim he made the final decision when he found out Japanese prosecutors had come to American interrogators kids over loose private wealth ventures he set up alleged to be funded by kickbacks from Nissan distributors in the Middle East now we kind of know that story is not true because by everybody's admission it took months and months and months to set up this is skate from Japan yeah he claims he only did it when he heard about his kids being interrogated but that came after the set up now we do know he was under twenty four hour surveillance he was trailed everywhere he went Japan by police had video cameras on every corner of his homes to catch his coming and going and yet somehow he managed to sneak away in the middle of the night yeah more on that in just a moment I'm David Gomez general manager highly Hyundai Burlison

"Window. Corvette. He designed the Shelby Daytona coupe. Some really cool cars and ran the the Brock racing enterprises. Team for Nissan out here in the west coast while Bob Sharpe and Numan. We're running the east coast. And we've got a couple of cars here. So I'm going to be talking with him and heroic Tamura who is the head of GT r and z four Nissan somebody talking to those guys we'll bring that back here. And I figured, hey, why not get things live and up by test driving GTRI before I head out to New York. They sent over to deep blue Pearl. GTRI? This color is fantastic. By the way. I love this color at night. It's got a darker kind of black look to it. And then the sunlight it's got so much metallic really pops. But here we are. We've got a GT are and Bill as you know, we were talking a little bit off the air. Is it a little long in the tooth? Yeah. This car has been around at least in the US since about I wanna say two thousand eight now what they've done over the years is two thousand eight they launched a four hundred eighty horsepower, supercar sports, car, whatever you wanna call it, and it was incredibly fast it handled. Well, it was fast, and it did it while being kind of big and heavy and over the years. They did something that's actually very difficult is they took the GT are. And they refined it to make it smoother to drive quieter to drive easier to drive more of an easier. Daily driver without sacrificing the performance. We now we have a car that I drove early model GTRI drove the Nizmia version, and when this car came out.

"Cool the fans were how cool the drivers were how pool the event itself was how fast the cars are the accessibility of all of the above and truly. If you've never been. It's an experience of a lifetime. You know, another part that we hadn't talked about is the is the ticket price. And I really don't know what ticket prices are now. But I know that each tracks trying to run specials, and but still taking your seventy five bucks a PD. Yeah. You know, and some of these people, you know, middle class people can't afford that some of these people years in years in the past I would hear about and I would talk to them. They would save up all year for that weekend at Bristol that weekend Daytona at weekend. Talladega you know to take the four kids and camp out and do this and that it's that much money, but we can afford it. And that's our one trip. I don't even know if people can afford them. I don't know. I I don't know. But I think we've got enough people telling us that they they can't afford it. And they wanna go then and believe me, I I will definitely get on the on the on the horn with NHRA and NASCAR, and I will convince. These guys to send us some tickets that we can give out to people. We'll figure something out into it. Because if you haven't gone before you should go go to an Askar race. If you if you like that bring the family go to NHRA race, the sights and sounds will blow your mind when you feel one of those cars, go down the drag strip is it's like nothing you've ever gonna experience in your life. And and you're right. The accessibility. You can talk to some of these drivers and shake some hands and season people and get some pictures like do something like that Long Beach grand prix is this weekend. We're going to that Adam and I are going down to that. And and you're right. Everybody is is pretty much. Everybody is nice. It's funny because adamant are having this conversation. I found this this Nissan race car on on Instagram somebody sent to me, and I said, Adam this is the sister car to your car, and here's the shop, restoring it. And he's like can we get I want to get some more information about us. Yeah. And he goes. Should I should? I just call us. Like sure nobody's gonna care like you just call and ask them, and I said because you're going to ask car guys car questions, and and it's the great mediator. Everybody wants to talk. And Adam me is like guy was great talked with like an hour on the phone. I was like that. He know who you are. Because I don't know we didn't even get to into like who cares is. I wanna talk about his car for the shell wanna talk about the car. Whether you're doing the guy sewn is racing Long Beach or we're gonna go meet them and on the weekend. And he's like, no it was fantastic. He's such a nice guy. And it gave me all this information. And and he's like, well how much is like, oh, yeah. He's selling it for this much money. I was like, oh, how'd you get the price? Just ask him. And he told me I was like great. There's there's no bullshit around like, it's so much fun to do it. I love that on SIMS boundaries. And you know, we're going to talk about this. This is not gonna be the first excuse me. This isn't going to be the last time. We're probably going to be talking about this subject. I'm really curious. I'd like to get the listeners to. Give their opinion on what they think NASCAR in do or NHRA, these these motor sports can do to get attendance of I personally believe that right now exactly what you just suggested is the biggest determine or whether we're going to get more fan..
