"Quattro s one around its hairpin turns exuberant fans lined the course only feet away from her on either side. Her navigator calmly utters directions as they rally over tarmac and gravel there in first place. But not by much fearlessness focus enjoy the ride where'd she lived by and words that would launch sure across the finish line to Make history as the first woman to win a world rally championship event the First Lady of Rallying Latham key the ranch, the French Tigris you don't earn this many nicknames by being mediocre. So it's no surprise they all belong to the fastest woman in the World Machel. Madan today, we're looking at this rally icon and the twelve year journey that would cement her place in automotive history as the most tenacious and successful woman in any top level motorsport this. Is passed gas. Yeah the the black volcanoes such. A great nickname. Welcome back to pass gas everybody. I'm your host Nolan Sykes joined as always by my toe hosts James Humphrey Chug Chug Chug Chug toot. and. Are you are you taking? Are you taking travel Scott's ad-lib? I. DuNNo. The decided sounded like you said it's in a way. That's. Yeah Yeah. So The way. Way You're saying that. How did you come up with that? Just came to me like I was like I thought something was lit. That I was doing and. It's Like Damn Start I should start saying that. We'll come back to that and my other co host. Joe Weber. Fired up and keep it jus. That's a new one I'm trying to get I like it. I think the more catchphrases you have Joe, the better job we got that video by those guys in Super Cool Huntsville Alabama. That's right. Put him down for Huntsville. That was very cool. If you guys are listening big shout, they said our catchphrases with more confidence than we have ever said them. We should just have him on the podcast to do. That to do. His. Yeah We'll look into it. Yeah. They can do my we the best. I do not care I think you're gonNA run into some legal issues with that one we the best podcast another one. Yeah. So today we're discussing Michelle. mouton. A woman. We've this is this the first time we've discussed a woman on the show. This might be the first episode dedicated to a lady. which is a bit embarrassing. I would say so yeah. But no better woman to start off this trend with and Michelle. She is easily one of the best rally drivers ever. She's a beast. So I'm really stoked that we can tell the story even if it took us a little while to get to it, that's on us but but it's interesting because motorsport is really one of the sports where women and men compete against each other as true like she's not the best. Female driver ever. She's one of the best rally drivers at. Yeah. Regardless of gender she's one of the greatest. and honestly like just watching a video of her rally driving makes me sweat. Over, yeah she's like she's the person who when we talk about. Like rally cars now are all-wheel-drive. Wheel drive. But when Audi showed up with quattro and just started smoking everybody that was Michelle. Meantime that was young Mouton Bay. mouton on the track. Yeah I mean. To your point James like drag racing of course is or was kind of dominated by women at one point all the force sisters were just tearing it up. There's really no reason. For it to be separated by gender in in Motor Sport Really of course right now there's the there's the W. series, which is a like a women's open-wheel series. At I think that's more for them to kind of get exposure and it proved themselves in like a formula car but I'm looking forward to seeing some of those drivers come up in the formula. One. Soon hopefully, it would just make it more interesting for crying out loud if nothing else I agree let's get into it a. all right. Let's fired up. All Right Michelle Mouton entered this world on June twenty third nineteen, fifty one in the French Riviera more specifically the idyllic town of grass cross grass Ross. The Idyllic town of Gross France, the perfume capital of the world grassi surrounded by fields of aromatic flowers and home to Francis. Oldest perfumery GALLIMARD. Look I'm friend by far French is the language that I have the hardest time pronouncing both words and names I apologize profusely to anyone with a modicum of sense of how to pronounce stuff I. Think you're doing great. I think I think here like right there. Thank you, Joe, unlike many drivers whose family have a history in the sport returns family made a living growing roses and jasmine for the perfume industry mouton spent her youth skiing doing ballet and excelling in school. But just beyond the flower fields sat the mountain. Stages used for local rallies and wouldn't be long before the engine notes trickling down into the valley beckoned to Michelle mcgann discovered her love of cars at fourteen years old when she would steal her father. Pierre's Citron to seavy and take it out for joyrides. Quote for me at the time a car always meant freedom and independence she said but driving wasn't something she could possibly see a future in it for anyone to envision that path for mere enjoyment to making something your life's purpose but you could argue this especially from. Models for women on the racing stage were few and far between. So after graduating high school Bhutan took up odd jobs working as a ski instructor, a Care Assistant in a home for the disabled and eventually at her father's insurance company until she began studying to be a lawyer but something unexpected would quickly put an end to that career path her entry into a competitive rock and roll dance contest. That's how you got started right James Yeah I entered this rock and roll dance contest and danced real good this rock and roll. And Bing Bang boom a recruiter from donut bobby. It was danced till you drop and people had to dance more than twenty four hours. I. Didn't even drop. It was Mr Beast. Video. Jenna Marbles Marquess Brownlee they're all in the same contest they dropped they dropped you pie dropped, which is weird because these these are all youtubers that are way bigger than me. and. Somehow I was in contests before I even worked for doughnut. They saw you in that Victoria justice movie and they're like Hey. Man. Yeah didn't, and then it just so happened that keep star dropped out last second james filled in. They saw me say one line.

"Platform of your choice a really help us out and I really that. So thank all right now for the show. What would donate media have been before youtube there's a good chance. It would have been donut magazine instead of video series we'll house up to speed would be regular print features. There'd be a quiz on whether or not you're high car or your low car. James would have a column called James Notes, where he explains the oil crisis over and over every single issue, and instead of Youtube comments, we'd have letters to the editor about how we needed up to speed on Dale earnhardt senior. You know some minute show that we got wrong donut magazine never existed but what if I told you that one of the earliest influences on donut media and how we talk about cars was and is a magazine. And furthermore, what if I added that the magazine in question is not written in English but in Japanese today on pass gas, we're talking about the legendary og of the Japanese tuner scene option magazines, padded option start who founded it, and how did option come to have such a massive underground influence on everything that followed it. That's the cover story on today's Kaku Gossioux that's Japanese for pass gas our latest issue drops now. Ask. Kaku gasoline. Kogyo Gossioux is about cars is what? I thought did for a split second. I was like, oh. My God James is about to do the rest of that theme song in Japanese. Oh. Yeah. I just speak I speak Japanese. I see. Just. Everything you speak every language perfectly. So welcome back to pass gas everyone I'm your host Nolan Sykes joined as always by my co hosts James Pomfret Chug a Chug to. and Joe Weber keep it juiced. Dan. New One. Wow you're just like. God. Catch after. Catchphrase. Print money. Money. As I said in the INTRO WE'RE GONNA be talking about option magazine today admittedly a topic I don't really know a lot about I'm more familiar with their video content on Youtube that's made its way to youtube nowadays. But yeah, I didn't really grow up with this. I was more of a hot rod magazine kind of Guy. If you can imagine that do you guys know anything about option magazine? I you're going to ask if we know anything about hot rods. A lot of the story I'm excited to. Find Out and talk about it. But option. Option to is like the first really nerdy thing like the first like really car nerd thing that I did when I was, I was order Japanese magazines and videos off of Ebay. Because I am old and was in highschool before Youtube was a thing. So you. It wasn't like a subscription even for you is more like you had to find old issues ordering old issues me and my friend Nathan. Order old issues. And we were like what the? The pages go backward. I don't have I don't have too much context on it I. The only thing I know is from researching. For different videos and I think the H K s up to speed talk a little bit about it but I know about like Daijiro but only in the context of like the early eighties like trying to set. Speed records and stuff. So I know he's crazy dude. I'm excited to see like more of his history. He's the editor in chief. Yeah. I'm the editor in chief of donut. So sounds like pretty similar types of guys. He sets land speed records. I have a sixteen pound Golden doodle pretty similar. I bought a baby pool. Last weekend. Yeah. What to do with that baby pool? Who I wait till the sun warms up and then I, lay in Baby poor record for. Longest Soak. Actually it's. It's it's too cold. Over me background that hose waters chilly Boyd's it comes from underneath the ground I just put my feet in it. Casey cocktail hour. Okay. Let's let's. Option. Actor Jonah Hold Digression about how I wish I had yard to put a baby pool into half cocktail hour but it's not so much. What option magazine covered that EXCITES US although we obviously love tuner cars and the JD M. Market. It's the way that option talked about cars that was most revolutionary. They treated cars like evolving customizable beings that could be part of your personal expression way of approaching the world. At the end of the day cars were creative and most importantly fun like Gtri are thirty three speedwagon Mazda, RX7, Toyota Supra, kind of fun to really get the full picture. Let's go into passed gas attic and find the boxes behind the one's labeled Halloween Dad's sports memories to the one labeled vintage car magazine that Dad's sports memories in like a Harry Potter sense like it's just like bottles of missed that contain your father's memories and he takes about and sniffs him you put him in the pool the. Pool. All Right Option magazine was founded in nineteen eighty, one known as option. In Japanese, it was subtitled exciting car magazine eighty one might sound like just a number but keep in mind. This was a full decade before an American audience really started getting into tuner culture and two decades before it reaches peak in the West as the fast and the furious hit the box office and Video Games like Midnight Club were released even among magazines option beat most other tuner magazines to the press by over a decade for reference. The British to centric MAG Max Power was founded in nineteen ninety-three I used to have a Max power subscription. Nice Yeah. Were there like oil governor? You'RE GONNA PUT US A A. Some dishes on them. GonNa Dishes. Max Power magazine was like Super Tacky, like it had like the tackiest Carson really. Hot Import Nights Tight Import Tuner magazine and American based magazine also featured at makes of cars and scantily clad women debuted in one thousand, nine, hundred. Yeah. The only tuner MAG is I'm really familiar with our import tuner MAG and. What's the other one? What's the? Like Super Street thank you James Therefore magazines that I would look for in the grocery store and asked my mom or dad to get me. So there's importuner which was like then it was on a scale. So like importuner was like very entry level, there are always like hot babes models and there was like a literal centerfold whereas like this. Lacy her this is her birthday. This is what she likes to do on the weekends then and it was like not super technical. Then there was super street was like the next year which I thought was like it was like really well written it was a bit more technical. Cooler, and like didn't have a bunch of hot babes in it and but like classier I think super shoes my favorite and there were sport compact car which was like more Glen and I think less Stevie. But like really well written that's what Davis right for day was Dave Cohen my favorite writer when I was a kid well and then Turbo. Magazine was like it was a magazine full of all the tech articles from the.

He aspired to open a car museum focused on early twentieth century autos by on collected dozens of cars, but in the seventies, financial setbacks with his business forced him to give up on his dream of doing. So so instead, the cars sat idle spread out over the grounds of an expansive property in rural France, but any sell the cars a photographer got wind of the trove of cars and visited the farm in two thousand fourteen when he discovered bodies, Ferraris and Hispanic Souza's among others look man. Car Collectors it's easy to say day just sell the cars but this guy. He's the Kinda guy who wants to build a museum for these cars. He's that kind of guy where he's like if he believes it belongs in a museum, he's not going to give up that easily he's going to hold onto those things. You Know Sal WanNA sell one of those Hispanics. It's not it's not that simple man is mental illness a mental illness. Yeah it's not my. Like Nolan is. Anti car sale. I'm not anti no no no I'm coming at this from it. I know exactly who this of guy is because like my dad is the same way like we have like four or five different project cars sitting around and it becomes a real problem because. You think you're going to like do all these projects to him, but it just doesn't come around. It's much better to focus on one car and get that done and then move onto the next instead of like thinking. That you have the time to do all these different projects I would want this guy to sell some of these cars instead of letting them rot on his property but like. That's it's hard. It's really hard to get through to these kinds of people I kind of understand. So the Gulf is. Not. Going to be fun to drive, it's more fun to look at. That's how I built it. So you can take pictures of it because I want to be in w magazine the Karol is going to be too nice to drive what really. Yeah. So I asked Casey if again. So No, I'm within the last couple within the last couple of months I would say after I bought the Chrysler thousand turning-point from your, it's like I can't be one of those guys will one practically don't have the space for it but to I, don't want to be one of the guys that has multiple projects in motion because it's just I don't know I I've seen the stresses that it causes and for me, it's not it's not worth it. I'm about to have two cars with no motoring him where he swapping. Eighty six I was gonNA take, motor. Oh Man. So gems of that French collection included a nine, hundred, fifty, six Maserati, a six, G, two, thousand, Berlin Neta. One of only three ever built continuing the trend of people stacking their trash on top of insanely railcars. There's also Ferrari to fifty GT s WBZ Califa- -fornia. Her say that ten times fast painted jet black looking to be an utterly mint condition, which was almost invisible under huge bundle of old car magazines. The car loan sold for an eye popping brain dissolving Eighteen and a half million dollars the director in charge of auctioning all these cars said quote the magic of these sixty mysterious mechanical creatures is more like a giant work of art the unrealized dream of their owner, which goes the show when it comes to sales. The story is almost as important as the product a blue Porsche in the Blue Ridge Mountain. This is one for. Nolan. Millions of dollars are cool. But barn finds are in their peers form when emotion overrides monetary value and an individual car ever actually finds the vehicle that represents the pinnacle of his or her automotive fantasy who I want to jump a river. There's maybe no better example of that than the story of a poor Chiffon Mike Savina of West Virginia the proud owner of a portion nine, Fourteen Mike was happy to talk Porsche with anyone in everyone amen. What's up by you WANNA, talk my push and you WanNa talk about abortion. When construction work you're doing a project at his house saw his nine fourteen Mike and him got to talking about porsches and the guy mentioned that he knew of a Porsche that he thought to be a seventy five nine eleven that was sitting abandoned in a barn not too far away. Just right down the street about the only catch was at the barn and actually collapsed on top of the Porsche meaning that this was less a born find and more of a Barn Rescue Watch rescue starring host Josh taffer jeans pump free, Nolan Sykes Joe Weber Sunday nights on the paramount network I do love S Q. Good Show, you need to get some stalls in this barn you're. Never. Any stalls you got nowhere. You got nowhere to put your hey, you got nowhere to put your horses. On with my dad ten years ago because it was dreamed open I feel like we've lost. Vision. Mike went to check out the Porsche was greeted by a scary looking six foot four ex-marine who corrected the construction guys story he did Indian own Porsche buried under a collapsed barn, but it wasn't a nine hundred and seventy-five nine eleven s. It was an even more rare nineteen, sixty, seven, nine eleven, nece Mike probably out of his mind with excitement at this point went to look at the car. He barely see it under the rubble of the of the barn but it looked like it was in rough shape. The Blue Roof was dented and there was a good amount of trust. But even in fair shape, he knew the car was valued at forty five thousand dollars Mike. Spring Action Hempseed his bank account leaving three dollars and eighty six cents as his balance. He offered four thousand dollars to the expiration and they settled on five thousand. Then with the help of an excavator he dug out his purchase revealing the Porsche in rough shape but mostly intact. Needed a lot of work Mike took it home and deliberated flip it for an instant profit but this was his gene car. He actually went back and forth several times posting on Porsche forms and openly speculating on whether he could even afford the project. Like a two car guide, Mike eventually decided to keep the nine eleven expense be damned that was last year and check on Mike's instagram reveals that his blue Porsche is currently in his garage and getting worked on it's Kinda. Cool to see a sick barn find turn into a much love project car instead of getting auctioned off. Seeking these cars get detailed and restored is a huge part of the joy of a barn. Fine that pleasure is familiar to Larry Castilla, a luxury auto dealer who got called into detail a few cars in a rich dudes decades-old collection spanning three warehouses. With cars stacked to literally on top of each other among them was a Lamborghini Diablo a one of a kind oldsmobile Aurora race car with with six hundred, Fifty Horsepower V. Eight, a shelby GT forty and perhaps, and perhaps the jewel, the entire collection of busy Sereni p five, thirty, eight, one of only a handful that exist in the world. The car hadn't been driven over thirty two years but the owner wanted to sell it. So Larry the bizarre privilege of giving the busy rainy. It's I wash in over three decades..

One Canaan our director is out of town today said, he's not here except forming really one of the only instances that we need a director. Yeah seriously. Because we got like Nolan played himself but like playing himself in a skit and then going back. I'm talking to myself as someone else it's insane and then to. Tommy are a writer. Is Joe's French chose good friend Joe's the one who brought him into Dona and Tommy made Joe, a car. In this like fantasy Nolan I are traveling through time and stuff and I, guess is either the car or back in the present talking through a radio.

He's still alive. Funny Guy. He's eighty two I. Hope he's still alive because he's in my guest room down but that was when I was talking to Tommy about this I was confused because I was like he's gotTa be a hundred and twenty years old by now but he started his career. So early he was like seventeen when he first started designing on the real, he's been around. Forever. While so anyway, we decided that we take a break from the racing and a and take a look at a figure that doesn't get talked about a lot design is not the even though it's responsible for. So many of our favorite things in this industry doesn't really gets a chance to shine very often it's little overlooked. So I I'm glad that we're doing this episode today.

"Not Going to be the most uplifting. episode today. But. This family is a dynasty at the Isle of Man, the Dunlop family welcome back everyone to pass gas As always. I'm your host, Nolan Sykes joined by my friends. One Joe Weber. What's up? And I'm sorry, I'm trying I'm trying to bring the energy, but this is also a very somber script already, and so I want to be entertaining Bhai also want to. Honor respectful. Done that. Be Entertaining, but respectful. And James. Humphrey. You hear him talking now. To, two. The river. All right anyway. gas. So today's are two part our second part of our story on the Isle of Man. T T we're talking about the Dunlop family, are you guys ready to get into it I? Am I think I just want to point out I. Think you're man is the one of the six nicknames I've ever? That's a great and I said well good. It's so it means it means you're a nice guy. It. Yet. It's a rare nickname that sounds But it also means you're Nice Kylie. Guy that the go-to guy whenever anything needs to be done. Man He's your man. Love it. Great. Start to great episode. Let's dive into it when Marjorie and Ian Forest and their twin teenage sons moved to their house on Douglas Road on the isle. Of Man. One. Of the things they look forward to was the opportunity to watch the legendary I'll of man tourist trophy races from their front yard after all, it's not every day that you can watch the best road racers in the world. Take a corner, your corner in front of your house at speeds of over one hundred, twenty miles an hour. Unfortunately, the forest family had no idea what they were in for on a practice day in two, thousand five, they heard a crash outside Yawkey Carlson, a Swedish racer had run into their gate and flipped into their garden. The Swede was severely injured. Medics rushed to the scene, but there was nothing they could do Carlson's name joined the two, hundred, fifty plus other men who had died on the t course. The horror didn't end there though officials told the forest family that was to logistically challenging to delay the practice and move Carlson's body instead who Carlson was zipped into a body bag on the Front Garden for ninety minutes as the road marshals waited for practice to end, all the garrisons could do was closed their curtains and forbid their sons from looking outside. We'll I got. Doubts pretty awful. there's no way around it. Motorcycle racing is dangerous. Even riding a motorcycle daily traffic puts you at risk of dying in a crash twenty, nine times higher than that. If you were in a car at the same time, motorcycle riders and racers understand that danger. In fact, it's part of what draws them to the sport. Unfortunately, there's no real way around risking your life unlike cars where technology has greatly improved safety and driver protection motorcycle crashes, you're basically experiencing the equivalent of a no seatbelt through the windshield accident every single time. And as dangerous as motorcycle racing is the Isle of. Man. T he stands out as a full degree of magnitude more dangerous than the rest. First of all public road courses like the Isle of Man were writers have to contend with what they call the furniture. That's sick. They're talking about telephone poles, ditches, garden walls. These are much more dangerous than closed circuit courses or dirt bike riding and racing. While those races do see fatal accidents there hasn't been a deadly crash in a speedway race since twenty sixteen and in the twenty years before that, there is an average of less than one year similarly motocross raced at much lower speeds also sees lower fatalities unlike public road races. These courses are designed with plenty of room to minimize danger to the writers. So if Motorcycle Race Games skydiving public road courses are like base. Base jumping in a wing suit taken an already dangerous activity and bringing it as close to the edge as possible. However, even among public road races, the Isle of Man is easily the most dangerous in the twenty seven years. The T T was part of the World Grand Prix, championship thirty, six racers died on the isle. Of Man. Obviously. More than one year. In comparison at Imatra, there were two fatalities in sixteen years at Hockenheim, three deaths in twenty six years. The second deadliest race after the man was a circuit day SPA francorchamps which. Baby Franker Jam Cams, which saw ten deaths in thirty five years making the Isle of Man and average four times deadlier than even the second most deadly race. So why is the Isle of Man so much more dangerous than every other race in already dangerous sport. The short answer is as weird as it seems. Tradition. The motorcycle has massively evolved since the mountain course was first run in nineteen eleven never forget with speeds increasing exponentially over the decades and bike technology allowing for hugely faster acceleration and breaking the race is faster than ever. However, the course itself has barely changed in that time. If anything changes on the course like paving, the roads have only allowed racers to go faster nods to safety are often hilariously inadequate, for example. A twenty fifteen jill optic article on the race titled The world's fastest death cult featured a picture of classic read British Telephone Booth with what looked like a dirty old mattress strapped onto one of the sides. Many other races that began his public road circuits have changed to address safety concerns. For instance, the circuit, the Cirque, this SPA Francorchamps, which has mentioned was the second most deadly. Deadly Grand Prix course changes circuit in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, nine for an eight point, eight mile loop on public roads to a four point, three mile permanent circuit that allowed for safety features to be implemented throughout. But on the mountain course, racers are often feet away from private walls and buildings, safety improvements like runoff zones and removal of hazards like ditches and polls are impossible. To make the race safer would be change the race entirely, and that's a change fans and organizers won't accept. Ultimately, it's the writers who pay the price? Richard Quail and. T champion explained it in a simple comparison. If Roger. Federer. Mrs., Schott he loses a point. If I MISS APEX, I'll lose my life. So the it's not, this is not enough of a reason for me to keep doing this dangerous like it's just because like machismo is not a reason that people have to keep dying in my I mean I think I would argue to say that mccheese Mo is. The reason people keep dying. You know. In my mind I don't want. I'd like that it's not enough for reason, for me to like. Continue to do this race. Yeah. But I mean, yeah, like the I like the. Just, blind pursuit of power and money is is the reason most people die not most? People. It's never going to be the CEO of a motorcycle company Yeah Yeah, they're gonNA. Find a new kid that is going to is hungry to race the next year and they're getting keep making money I. think it's different I. Think I think the the man is a little different like. You. Know we across the show. We've read about so many different like.

I went to the castle that Romeo and Juliet was filmed at in Mexico. It's in the in this huge park. That's like twice. The size of central park in the middle of Mexico City and there's a hill, and there's this castle on the top of it, and it's just as cool as it looks in the movie. Great well. I guess I'll watch it last time. I saw his freshman year of high school, so check that out tonight. After this podcast, speaking, of which today we are doing part two of our rotary series here on pass gas I am Nolan Sykes your host as always with my buddies in arms, one Mr James Pump free. Your buddy in your arms baby. Baby. and Joe Weber. Wink Wink Wink I mean I'm trying new stuff, but I feel like I'm getting a resurgence in my DM's of Wink, wink, nation so I feel like Oh lean into that What's Greg? Nation you guys. I wouldn't be anything without you guys. Thank you I'm going to start I'm going to try a new one. Okay intruder again on with me as always my co-host James. pumper look dog over there. Oh. Little. Animal themed Spain new to your pets. Go adopt the dog today very Nice Janice with our big dog. Collaboration go up yeah, Oh yeah I can't wait for the big dogs. To me again all right again. As as always with my co-host James Palm, free. encode. The big bopper is back and he's old. I mean we have options that's. Still, one and my co host James Pumper this baby taste like cake frosting. I don't even know how to misconstrue that. All right, so a lot of auctions for James I think can keep innovating the slogan game as you have been for the past three years here at donut media up all right now. Let's go see that one felt unforced and really great. I felt really good. Nice alerts getting cold in here. When we last left off, we discussed the release of the MAZDA COSMO as it turns out the Mazda Cosmo was going to be a big deal for the company. The little one hundred ten horsepower, delightfully different sports car was Mazdas way of shouting. I'm different dad as they forge their own path in the sports car market. The Cosmos Sport was a tribute to the thousands of hours that they had dedicated to perfecting the rotary engine and creating a car that was truly special. The production only lasted five years at a rate of about one car per day, which means there are only one thousand one hundred seventy six COSMO sports on the road at its peak, but that didn't matter as it was truly meant to be. Be The company's Halo Car it was meant to show people that, unlike other companies Mazda wasn't ready to give up on the winkle Rhodri, engine just yet they were dedicated to commercializing this strange engine and hoped to push their company to the top in the process i. do remember driving the Mazda Cosmo sport in one of the grant PRISMA Games, and I do remember it being pretty good actually. So, that means it was definitely really good in real life. That's how it works guys. I? Just bought a philosopher and enforced horizon four. after just driving it in real life and it was. It was very analogous to how it felt in real life so. Good on those engineers I could definitely daily one of those things I really really enjoyed it. It's fun speaking of successfully commercializing their engine Mazda. Certainly wasn't the only company trying to push the winkle rotary engine into the spotlight after the initial release of the road redesign. Body wanted to get their hands on. One of Felix. Wink does little beauties. And all about twenty-three companies licensed the technology from winkle and Audi Su. Rotary engines are light and relatively easy to work on as James saying if you know what you're doing, the low power to weight ratio of the design. All baber. Apollo baby in in the language of Uruba which I have never heard of means I am big. Elliott, go no. No really it means something. How it's spelled like how we spell it, M. O.. P. O., W. H., B. A. B. E. H.. Guess is in Uruba means I I am big in it. Never heard of Rubel Europe is the name of the language. Yeah, someone in our sub founded out. Okay. It's a ethnic group that inhabits western Africa mainly Nigeria Benin Togo and part of Ghana. The your rubel constitute about eighty eight million people within Nigeria, and over one hundred, twenty, million worldwide, so if you are Uruba. Thank you so much. Listen to the show Mo- Paulo Beta. To you. May I'm so big. Time so big. Are you still on translate right now? Oh, in Javanese, it says. It means you are a babe. Wow so Powell baby lots of meaning spread across the world. Thankfully, all of them positive I would hate for it to be a hey. A hateful slowed anywhere else. When we finally do a world tour and we go to Nigeria. It's GonNa. Be Great to. Screaming out into a microphone. So the low power weight ratio of the Rotary Design made the idea of using the engine very enticing to a lot of companies, the people at General Motors were definitely interested in giving the rotary a lot of consideration. John delorean John delorean and Ed Cole looked at the design and we're like. Yeah, that's pretty sweet. We could probably do some with that added. Coq off that bad boy. And they did well, I.

Just Nolan on Nolan. sweaty grease in each other. Muscle. Knocks Greasy greasing their knuckles up on each. Oh boy! Okay, let's get. Call me by your. Call me by your name. Nolan's just like dollar. All right I think that's enough. Wendall Scott was nearly forty years old by the time he made it to the NASCAR grand national, the top tier of the League that's now known as the Cup series, and that time Wendell had gone from serving in world, war two as a mechanic to running bootleg Moonshine, all over Georgia and a souped up nineteen forty four coupe to racing stock cars throughout the nineteen fifties. I in a semi professional league known as the Dixie Circuit, then in the lower divisions of NASCAR. Nineteen sixty one would be Scott's rookie year in the grand. NATIONAL NASCAR at the time was in a state of transition it was moving away from its humble hillbilly and Moonshine, running origins where races were typically on half mile, clay and dirt tracks, and moving increasingly to so-called super speedways in Darlington Daytona Charlotte and Atlanta with sharply banked corners and seating for thousands of fans. The man behind the push, remodernisation was bill France. The powerful businessman who owned Nascar it wasn't just the tracks that were changing. The cars were evolving to. and NASCAR's early days it was common for drivers to race older cars that they had been working on for years, but now newer models were advancing so rapidly that an older car was simply not competitive NASCAR had and less room for working class hobbyists. Now you needed money to compete. In nineteen, forty seven Jackie Robinson went to bat for the Brooklyn dodgers breaking the so called color barrier in the most American sport of the Mall Baseball. Out actually argue that oval racing is the most American sport blessed discussion for another time. Now Dude Baseball was around for one hundred years before frigging cars didn't come from other countries. Though now there's a if you want if you WANNA watch Ken Burns's baseball It's way too long, but it started as like. bastardisation of an English game called like rounds or something. But it's not at all really related to any other sport. Whatever most Americans sport ever armories arm-wrestling arm racing. Release it. Tie Really Sick Oh tie. There's a lot of shoulder injuries and that sort. Most American sport evers the right to vote. Yet out there November. Exercise Your Sports? Exercise your right to vote, so it's a seaport.

More Labor life. Back and baseball, the crowd that gathered to watch at ebbets field was twenty, six, thousand, strong with fourteen, thousand of those fans being black. Robinson's debut was headline news all over the world, and made him one of the most legendary names in American sports. But unlike Jackie Robinson Scott's debut in the grand national received, no press at all spectators were largely unaware of the history, being made grudging acceptance was the best that Scott could expect from NASCAR's management, who would prefer that? As few of their white blue collar fans knew of.

One, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight Hamilton, was invited back to the mall by Jaguar yet again during the race. There is a pile up. That was not visible to Hamilton. I might have joined the poll up and had it not been for Frenchman. Who threw his hat on the road in front of me? I would have done so this Frenchman and all have never been able to find out. Erie was saved more law life later in the race, the windshield of a Panhard it up in the driver stopped in the middle of the course, because he unable to see Hamilton ended up putting his car in the grass to him, colliding with the barrier and somersaulting the car, he was knocked unconscious and ejected from the vehicle, falling into a ditch filled with water. Wasn't for two Frenchmen who are nearby. He would have drowned while he miraculously only ended up with some severe bruising at helped steal his fate in the sport. Yeah, he's after that. He's a psych. Screw this dude. Crashed too many times for too many dumb reasons. Why did that guy stop in the middle of the course you must have? It sounds like the chocolate guy from the Ford Ferrari episode. Really only a rookie would make that kind of move. You can only be thrown out of so many cars. was thrown out of a lot of cars. Think. Cars. After hanging up his racing helmet and gloves and nineteen, fifty nine, Hamilton got really into yachting. He especially loved his thirty eight foot yacht more importantly, he began focusing on his own business back in nineteen, forty eight, Hamilton's love of motoring led him to create his own business called Dunkin Hamilton and Co Ltd and to this day. His company is one of the most globally respected in historic cars. You can find plenty amazing race cars an Lamar racers. For Sale on their website, so check them out Dunkin Hamilton lot of goosing gags, but great dude historic man. Thing that sets Duncan Hamilton apart from other drivers is his reasoning behind doing it at all. He didn't do it for the money or the fame. He did it for his own of the sport, and he did it at a time when it was possible for people to own their own race cars and go as far as to win Atlema.

And, so he stepped into a host something and I wrote that in the script for you to say I would nail. That like you realize when you read for someone else you're like. Oh, I was not meant to say this. Definitely went through that on the Pantano shoot. When I said that to. that's W for James. I don't everything was a script written for you, so there's tons of like. colloquialisms.

Please help us grow by giving us a good rating and a nicer view on the podcast platform of choice. Really help us out and I really appreciate that. So thank you all right now for the show when we last met up with Bruce the young. Qe had left his home country of New Zealand and made his home in England working for legendary carmaker John Cooper in his factory. Bruce's racing career abroad had a bit of a bumpy. Start but after two wins at the Medina of Formula One. Not because I would say the machias Monaco Silverstone Bruce was finding his confidence behind the wheel is Medina. Like Madina Right. That's the first time I've ever really called on to city in Western. Saudi Arabia Coleman Anyway. It's the one thousand nine hundred fifty eight German Grand Prix. At the Nurburgring Bruce Finishes Fifth Overall and first in the formula to class. He was hanging in with the formula. One cars thing about how Formula One cards. You have to stay ahead of to be fifth overall but still win. The form from the to us about twenty-one sounds about right I'm not gonNA contest that's pretty crazy. Just like bump up a class like yeah I mean that. Just shows the prowess over. Yeah Yeah So. After the fifty eight German Grand Prix Hayman's mechanic Colin set off for England a race in brands hatch. Which was the very next day which I thought was insane. What these guys are always driving to raise amazing. They may act like now Racing is very posh. I guess like these guys are treated as athletes like you mentioned in the last episode. There's just so much data on them. They're checking their pulse. And their heart rates you know they probably like decompress the dudes after race in like check all their muscles and stuff like back then. It was a pretty like rag tag almost like the circus is coming to town. Yeah and it's there was no thought for scheduling. Yeah I'm really it's like. Hey we have formula one race in Germany. How will we go to Britain the next day? And there's like there's a race on there I don't know I guess two races back to back. In a day holiday weekend we might as well take advantage. Might as well make a vacation out of. Let's get some Carl's junior on the way. So they managed to complete the three hundred eighty mile journey from the nurburgring to brands. Hatch overnight and cooking. Yeah Bruce Hop in the car and finished third at that race and by the way. He wasn't the only one who made it to that raise. It was like pretty much the entire field in Germany. It's like a huge caravan of big old haulers and like probably station wagons and stuff just ripping down the autumn. Get on the M one. You know that's a local reference to angle everyone in the Midwest right now is like yeah. Three hundred and eighty miles. That's your commute. Yeah how far was la to Albuquerque for high low? It was like eight hundred miles so not that impressive. Sixteen hours twenty five dollars. God that was yeah. That was yeah. It was tasty blames my heart attack on that show. He's like like we just shot season. Two of high low the Z's are awesome now But like she was like very concerned while. We're shooting it because the last season was just so hard on us. This one was way easier by last time we work in eighteen hour days for like a month in a row and I had a heart attack like two weeks after it was weird man like that show like gotten the rhythm of that like you said eighteen hour days it was like okay you wake up drives garage work all day and then come home sleep for a little bit and then just do that and then after like two weeks this is like just a weird kind of few mind state. I forgot to pay bills beard dream state and like it's not like we're just going and work in it was like the highest pressure. Just everything was going wrong so much stress constantly and just like I think all of us cried. I cried cried cried. I was angry writing my lyrics by Bruce's twenty first birthday. He had competed in eleven European races and he had finished every one of them. Bruce believes it was because of the shared meticulous nature between he and his mechanic Colin they always tried to be first to tech inspections. I wants to practice and always have the car looking in tiptop shape in his book. Bruce maintains that quote. Three things are important. Go a long way towards winning races. I think it's time for just a little. Reminder of what racing was like back then the reputation that open-wheel racing has today as of precision and other worldly engineering and safety. But that's not how the sport was perceived in the late fifties. Now let no. Let's just listen to how Bruce describes a race. In Avis Germany. To my mind it was ridiculous to have a race. On the Avis Sick. It proved nothing and it was dangerous consisting of two two and a half Moss straights at one end by a hairpin and the other very steeply banked corner and when I say steeply banked boy I mean. Steeply banked is around forty degrees. It sounds more like something you'd see in running man to full throttle than a sanctioned race. I just think about. That's the most ridiculous racetrack I've ever heard. Yes big old oval that's not even oval is like hairpins up. Both sides knows a big bank at one side maintains a Frickin slingshot around the moon apart. And then you have to go through a hairpin shoe like the shape of the Caribbean her family. Yeah yeah so like you could just maintain a two and a half miles so you can maintain just like top out speed for. I'm guessing like close to six miles. Said Yeah they are in the book he says I think the average speed for that race was like one hundred fifty miles hour. That's absurd you remember. This is in the late fifties. Cars didn't have frigging seatbelts back. Then I don't think no no. No he goes on to describe the racing. At the Avis Circuit Race itself was like a group of boys and dodging cars wheels. Touching noses entails bumping jostling for the lead. But we do of that one hundred fifty miles per hour. Dodging cars are just bumper cars. Doug Jim Jim can't get a loan. I'm going to get some Cotton Candy Army Kit. The Dodoma's ooh that sounds. I'm going to try and win stuff bare minimum. There's a part of the documentary where he describes these like really steep banks. And he's going so fast that like it's hard to keep his hands in the bottom of the steering wheel like it's point his hands. Yeah isn't that crazy? That is insane. Bruce's appreciations about Avis testified as a crash sent one of the competitors flying thirty feet in the air and ejecting. The driver. The car went thirty feet. Car was out. Yeah the rest of the pack was able to dodge the car and continued their Breakneck Chase. Down the stretch back. Then they didn't even have like What's it like lotion rounds? Yeah they never. Yellow flag doesn't sound like as long as our cars on the way that's like a man. Keep it going. Crashes like these were not uncommon in racing back then. Bruce's car through a connecting rod that race by the way and the ejected driver also survived his crash with a broken leg and four. Broken Vertebrae like our racecar driver back. Then I'd be like okay. I'm down to race. Thank God I blew karate. Yeah certainly marina okay. I'm not going to win but at least I'm not dying today. There does seem to be at least a little bit of that kind of feeling. Drought the book because he when he describes time that it's car broke breaks down. He's also he's very sad obviously but also he then like in. The same breath described some horrific crash. Where someone just gets thrown from their car. His good friend got killed in a race and then he just like race the next day like they didn't even think about it. It was just like yeah. Of course I'm GONNA race guys used to die all the time. Yeah did you. Did you guys watch the The Daytona five hundred yeah. It's crazy Ryan's crazy crash. I thought it was a rerun because I didn't know that the race had been postponed so I was like. Oh I didn't hear anything about a driver getting hurt or anything so this is probably fine and then it was. It was a libraries. Luckily he was okay. He is okay and he walked out of the hospital and a couple of days later also. I was watching it at a bar in the task. Aero that's what you do is watch. Nascar in bars But like people were like cheering for these crashes because like at the end of that racers like it was like five crash or something like that every time. The good this is like dude like people are proudly guy in the US with Ryan's because like Ryan Newman's car got thrown in the air and smashed like he hit the wall head on. Yeah very similar. How earnhardt flu and then when he was on the roof you got hit by another car. It's like he very well could have died in these idiots or freedom Sharon anyway later that year Jim Russell Ass Bruce if he would like to co drive with him at Loma my favorite race in the coolest thing in all of Sports. What do you think he said? I don't Know James. He said yes. Few F- Jim had a lot in common with Bruce for a race car driver. Russell had a surprising working class background. He was born at his parents. Fish and chip shop in Norfolk England. That's pretty awesome. Yeah and his first job was surprisingly selling ice cream. Not Fishing ships during World War Two. He was a flight sergeant in the Royal Air Force and opened his own shop after the war in a world dominated by rich. Guys Bruce and Jim Russell were a good match for each other. Because they weren't rich guys they were good. Couldn't have to compete with them. Rich guys it's like us. Baby came from nothing came from the bottom. Now we're here. No new friends..

"Octa vote ramming speed initially podcast. I'm James Pump. Free across from me is Nolan. Sykes to my right. Nolan's left starbucks is starboard just gone by starbucks down and some Bowie comes into work next week with like hey like two different car is just sort of a really good. Sorry is sidetracking already a really good episode. This or a title for this episode is. He's just a man delorean very good. Let me write some star. Wars jokes in that real quick. Yeah man that's a really reference that show that came out four months ago. It's still huge with. Seo Do baby. Yoda return this week We're very excited to present part. Two of the John delorean of the John delorean story Australia. Super Fun the John Story Assault on Detroit Past. Hey guys welcome to the pass gas podcast. If you like pass gas please help us grow by giving us a good rating and a nicer view on the podcast platform of your choice to really help us out and I really appreciate that. So thank you all right now for the show we last met up with John delorean. He had decided that instead of fixing the awful DMC twelve stainless steel sports car. Big Air quotes on sports car by the way that he would just build more cars instead. But why would John? Make such a bad business decision well the DELOREAN company was hemorrhaging money and they knew from the very beginning that the funding they had been given by the Northern Irish government would only pay enough to get the first car out the door and being the risk taker that he was John decided to try and exploit a clause in their contract that promised him more aid if he increased the number of factory jobs clever after all jobs were viewed as the be all end all in Northern Ireland at the time. What he didn't take into account was a shift in British politics several months after the initial groundbreaking of the delorean motor company. Plant Margaret Thatcher's Conservative Party came to power in Britain. A major characteristic of the English Conservative Party at the time was their disapproval of the government investment into private industry. Margaret Thatcher specifically viewed the government's investment in the delorean factory as a bad deal for the British government and immediately cut any further investment into the company. John delorean thought that more jobs equaled more money but Thatcher didn't see it that way delorean was running out of cash and heading straight for insolvency. His back was against the wall. But you wouldn't have known it by looking at them handsome. Yeah he had to somehow partially pay back the British government as well as prove financial viability. Or else the government would seize all of his assets and dissolve the company. He began searching for outside funding and never losing his signature level of chill. He would frequently walk the factory floor and promise all his workers that he had just secured more funding towards the factory despite being over one hundred seventy five million dollars in debt. This strategy held until mid October nineteen eighty two because on October. Nineteenth nineteen eighty. Two News broke that John delorean had been arrested after meeting with undercover FBI MDA agents. He was charged by the US government with trafficking cocaine. What year the Guy With the Chin? Implants good hair and his party in California. Unbelievable yeah the. Us government stacked eight drug charges against him and of course delorean pled not guilty. But it was going to be a tough fighting. The feds had hours of video showing John. Planning investments in a cocaine trafficking the video. They nabbed him with showed John. Sitting in front of a briefcase filled with fifty nine pounds of cocaine valued at six point five million dollars reaching in and grabbing some while claiming that this is better than gold pretty damning. Yeah Love Gold to He. Made some solid not solid gold plated lady sold that and Sky Mall. Correct is Macy's yeah it was like a JC penney or one of those like Christmas catalogs and it was a cross promotion with mastercard so hard we covered that number number. Didn't we did check out that episode of bumper to bumper on the gold plated. Delorean the case against John. Delorean was extraordinarily strong. At least from the public's point of view and really it was the public's view on the case that mattered more than anything to the government. The delorean cases about as complicated as you'd expect as far as public was aware this was a case of a desperate man doing a desperate thing to try and keep his company alive. But this case has so many layers to it so we'll start from the beginning of the case built against John Laurean in the early nineteen hundred s president. Reagan announced a major expansion to one of Nixon's policies. The war on drugs whatever policies Nixon had in place. Reagan cranked up to eleven and government organizations. Were excited to demonstrate the true benefits of such intense policies. At this point time confidential informants were actually able to make a living yearly income purely by being an informant as a professional snitch. Cooperating could also help reduce prison sentences. What would your snitch name be? I wouldn't be snitch. I'd Never Kim snus mood. Point Jan Moot Point Lil Little Jimmy. Pump moot point move on. I'd never seen it confidential. Informant Jim Hoffman. Was No exception to try to get the most out of his position. Jim Hoffman was picked up for drug charges a few years earlier and conveniently was also John delorean's neighbor in California. He reported to his F. B. I. Handlers that he had spoken with delorean who had approached. Jim Suggesting a deal and on September fourth nineteen eighty to a meeting between the two at the lafont plaza was recorded by the FBI. John was promised that a two million dollar investment would net around fifteen million dollars straight back to him but at the time. Delorean didn't even have a million dollars to invest in this cocaine stuff but there was a possibility that he could put up some collateral the FBI wanted to catch John so they staged a meeting with an undercover operative. Playing a banker who could secure a loan for him the FBI was going to great lengths to make a deal. That was frankly impossible for delorean but it was in the FBI's interest to make this bust Hiram Hot Asian moneybags I mean Mr Moneybags Would you like some my money for cocaine specifically for Kane the US government was attempting to merge the cases of delorean and one Morgan Hedrick a suspected cocaine importer? This would give the government the best chance of taking both them down at the same time that way. The government got their big bust in the name of the Warren Drugs. And Jim Hoffman the SNITCH. We get some more money for providing quote valuable information after hours and hours of recorded meetings. John Actually hadn't given the FBI anything to work with so they cranked up the pressure. Each party had something they wanted from the other the informant wanted. His lifestyle delorean wanted to save his company and the feds wanted a major buck. Wanted to major bus. Wanted a major bust. Can you imagine living like living as an informant and you? Just you know that you're like destroying people's lives and setting him up. Yeah just so you can live in like the high would hills. Yeah you're just like a piece of yeah we'll get back to more pass gas right now over at sponsors big. Thanks to our sponsor this week valvoline oil. That's right Valvoline is sponsoring us.

That was a darker episode kind of different from what we usually do. I don't know I was thinking this on the way to the studio media today. I'm not sure that I'm smart enough to talk about things that dark. Yeah it's 'cause you say one wrong thing and it's it's really fired from SNL so now yeah it's not good. I was thinking last night I might get back into it back into the comedy shows and stuff you absolutely should man. That's like where you came from doing. The comments if he wanted a donut. Stand up to her. Oh Yeah you want US James to be funny now Speaking to the darkness of last episode I Apologize But I am also sorry to report.

I didn't realize that they did the period of time between when they designed the beetle like we talked about in the first episode to win it actually got produced almost like fifteen to twenty years so in today's episode. We're going to be talking about what happened. In between in betwixt the series of events that happened with the Volkswagen company during World War Two. Because it's very interesting. Which side were they on They're on the bad side. Okay yeah the they were there they were bad guys. Locale all right hummingbird was the codename given to the purge though now it's more commonly known as the night of long knives as many as one of Hitler's many power-grabs Hitler began limiting meeting threats. One by one on June thirtieth nineteen thirty four. The night of long knives saw the execution of many prominent Germans. Anyone who pose a threat to Hitler's power. The new maximum of the country became whatever is best for the Reich. The catch though was that Hitler was the only person able to say what was best after all other quote emergency situation called for another quote. Emergency Response Giving Hitler. A guy's an unearned guys. Yes I might add of legitimacy and the galaxy to his actions. Things were no different when it came to the automobile. In Hitler's mind. Hitler only knew what was the best in Porsche would have been nine eve to believe that Hitler wasn't shopping around for the Volkswagen project. He went to companies such as OPAL which is run by one Heinrich Nordhoff. But Hitler couldn't stand the fact that Opel was owned by an American company. General Motors in fact Hitler repeatedly threatened Opel.

"The Snow cruiser hasn't been found since nineteen fifty eight and there are few reveal A few prevailing ailing theories as to why the first is that the snow cruiser fell into the ocean when a large portion of the Ross. Ice Shelf broke off in the sixties. The second way more exciting theory in my opinion is that the Soviets captured the Snow Cruiser and smuggled it off Antarctica to reverse engineer it and build their own snow cruiser although that sounds a little farfetched because you would need a bigger vehicle to like thoat back and I don't think that's GonNa also wh why would you care about reengineering. A piece of new technology. Make around big tires. He's slick leak tires like the Russians. Probably looked at that thing. And we're like well that's garbage. We can build up. There's nothing out of it Antarctic Arctic exploration and research is still kicking today and they have all sorts of vehicles to help get them around one of them is the Tucker Sno cat which is pretty much a box on a set of four four tracks Whatever you're imagining right now listener? That's probably accurate to what I'm seeing those little triangle tracks right no just just a regular Lake Oval Kinda wheels or oval track. You know what I'm saying. They use the Tucker. Sno cats make little short trips and tow things. It's like a tractor for long distance trips over the continent at the vehicle. Choice is the howland which is another very boxy design but this time split between two cabs on two tracks each like to really boxy tanks attached each other. There's tons of room to like carry supplies and people The very and they they can use shelters. Apparently another popular choice is the Humvee but with those sick triangle tracks that you were talking about earlier and sleeper cab built on the back. So that's pretty sick zirk. Nowadays besides scientific research is also a surprising amount of touristy stuff to do in Antarctica In case the series is made you want to check it out makes. It sounds very appealing. We've really set the stage for people to yes down there. You can go kayaking camping. You want to hear something crazy. There was actually a tender date in Antarctica with your researchers found each other on tinder and when days ace there's only one. ATM On entered Arctic. It's like on the other side. Yeah so who who owns Antarctica is it a is it their own. I'm country it's IT'S GONNA. CLO countries have claimed parts of it like Russia's claimed parts of it Norway's claim parts America's claim parts. But no one has. I don't think claim like the South Pole. I think that's been like like not an unknown at treaty or anything but an agreement. Yeah we all agree that it's just like it's not worth the trouble Speaking of like different partitions Ukraine has some of their own territory. And there's a bar there That's sells homemade homemade vodka. For three dollars a shot so if you WANNA go check that out. We wires alcohol less expensive there than in La way success. I went to a bar and they were selling Jameson shots for twelve dollars. Oh My oh God that's terrible. Yeah gag me with a spoon. I just realized that like anyone can go anywhere and lay claim whatever land you just have to have a bigger military L. A.. Terrace she could go down there and this is my land and no one could do anything unless you know the Russian army shows up and kicks your ass off of it. You know what's happening with Greenland right now. Because all the ice is melting and they're getting more access to land there's like some rare earth metals and so trump made like said that dumb about like him trying to buy greenland the but it's actually becoming kind of an issue. Where like I think the Netherlands own has claimed to it right now but like as these as it becomes more valuable like it could? It's possible that there could be a war over it or something like that. Sure Wait Greenland's Greenland's nights own country or it is not a government. It's kind of the way I think like You know Canada's associated with Englander Lender Gopro. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I think it's like they discovered it. And it's Kinda like Gotcha. It's its own. It's not a sovereign nation. I don't know I sound like idiot but So autonomous territory the Kingdom of Denmark. Okay okay so yeah like Joe saying you know. Britain has all these territories and so this is just one but it's four Denmark. Yeah so it's possible that with like climate change We could probably. Maybe we see some or something like that happen in Antarctica. Yeah maybe there's like A new element like Shackleton oneal. Yeah that they discover down there just tons of of surge. Oh my God expedition Asian from the eighties. Just can't yeah all right I don't know if I ever want to go to Antarctica. I Dunno enough. Sounds really based off of these podcasts. we have really done a great job selling. I would take a ski down there. Yeah Oh yeah we kind of go to the Sandwich islands probably have like I mean I bet quiz nose is still open so is there. So he's there gold there is. Is there what what is the. What's are there any medals that it sounded like the? US wanted it only because they didn't want the Germans having right But is there anything under that icy crust. Well I think if there was then there would definitely be some sort of claims to it you know. I probably only just waiting for the earth to heat up enough to where it's a little bit warmer down there and he could do some stuff I think I think as like a strategic point it makes sense because because you like you kind of access to anywhere from it. I don't know what I'm talking about. Do you have access to anywhere. South the equator easily. Yeah north part. Yeah we just go through a tube going from the North Pole and they're South Pole Santa Claus Claus. He comes and takes your press mm-hmm all right well. This has been a very fun to episodes.
