"It's 20 20 and Suzuki hasn't taken home a MotoGP championship in two decades. The season has been a tough one, shortened by the COVID-19 pandemic, and with the increased pressure of it being the company's 100th anniversary. But 23 year old Mallorca and writer John Muir is hungry. The last time Suzuki brought home a championship, courtesy of the legendary Kenny Roberts, Mira was still in diapers. Now, Mira has set his sights on bringing in the wind. Not just for the riders championship, but for the team as well. After 14 races, the young writer delivers for his team, Mira himself later said, well, it really hard to find the words at the moment. To be the person who brings Suzuki another crown after 20 years is an unbelievable feeling. A true, honor. After his win, many believe that Mira was going to lead Suzuki into a new era of racing glory. But 20 21 didn't go according to plan. And neither did 2022. In fact, despite Suzuki signing a new contract with MotoGP to participate in the series until 2026, the world was shocked to learn that the company that pretty much launched the golden era of superbikes would again be pulling out of MotoGP. Today I'm past gas. How did Suzuki switch from building looms to crafting some of the best motorcycles on the planet? Why did they pull their cars from the U.S. market? And are they getting out of racing for good?

"Kicked off his first Indy 500 weekend with an impressive 5th place during qualifying. But now, it was time to race with the big boys. The Rookie driver passed legends, roger ward, Eddie Sachs, and Jim raffman, in the same lap to take the lead in the legendary race. To make those kinds of moves in your first indie, that's the stuff of legends. But that chance at first place was interrupted by a small piece of metal. After leading an impressive 27 laps, a metal scrap struck parnelli just above his eye, the driver had no choice but to slow down as his goggles filled up with blood, blocking his view of the track. And just what matters couldn't seem to get any worse. His car lost the cylinder. Despite the strong start by the end of the race, parnelli Jones finished his first Indy 500 in a disappointing 12th. Another newcomer might have been disheartened by his highs turning so quickly into Lowe's. But parnelli Jones? Not so much. He would return to Indy the following year, and the year after that. And the year after that, how did parnelli achieve his status as an indie legend? What kind of impact did you have on the world of racing, including the cards themselves? And what kind of legacy does the parnelli Jones name carry on and off the track? We'll find out. On today's episode of past gas, it's parnelli Jones. Podcast is the course it's not about sports. Are you guys excited about that new album? Little piece of metal by goggles of blood? Yeah. Everyone pretends like they hate goggles of blood, but like goggles and blood is pretty good. Yeah. I think it's a name. It's like you don't want to say that. You're not going to wear a goggles of blood T-shirt to work. Yeah, definitely not. It's kind of like slipknot. Like maybe in like ten years to be like, oh, dude, that's sick. A goggles of blood. Shirt. Yeah. I remember liking them a lot in high school. Yeah, with that one song. And then it kicks in and they go. What's up, everybody? Welcome back to past gas. Unfortunately, this is not a metal show. Unfortunately, we keep let us know if you want us to do a metal podcast. My name is Nolan Sykes, here to introduce my co hosts, which I forget to do on a semi weekly basis. We've got James pumphrey across three little piece of metal songs. Let's see. Well, there's narrows, which I think is like a pretty good opening track and it sets a ton for the album. Let's have fourth track call. 7 sweet 7s. 7 sweet 7s. Yeah, kind of a weird title for them. That in parentheses 49. And then the closing track, why is algebra so hard? That's a Jimmy Buffett cover. And Joe Weber, what's up? What up? Ignition. How are we doing guys? I'm great. Honestly. I feel pretty good. I have allergy headache right now. Really? Yeah. Fun. Yeah, mixed in with everything else. This week. That's awesome. It's super fun, Joe. Thanks for bringing it up. It's really centralized. When you play through the pain, man. And yeah, we're going to talk about parnelli Jones. A figure that seems to show up every now and then in our other stories. So I'm glad that we're going to focus on him and get to know him. Two last names. It's rare. Yeah, a lot of people have two first names. Mike Jeff. Linebacker Mike Jeff. Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy's. Dave Thomas Dave Matthews. Dave Matthews. Follow the money. That's a little strange. Blackwater, man. Oh yeah, that's what he shot out of his van over the people. Chicago. Yeah, the biggest thing we've learned on this podcast is don't empty your RV's latrine over the Chicago river. Just don't dump poop on people ever. Did it hit people? No. I thought it was just like into the river and it's like a point of pride. But literally that's another great little piece of metal song. It was something like a thousand gallons or something. They had an emptied it the whole tour. A tour. And that's a tour bus. Yeah, and there's also a tourist boat until you're like, oh, Chicago. We'll spend half of our day on this boat looking at river stuff. Oh my God, I'm covered in shit. Oh, no, thank you. Rufus Parnell Jones was born on August 12th, 1933 in Texarkana Arkansas. That's our first mention of Texarkana, I think, on this entire show. Shout. Shout out. Great REM song. They're from Savannah, Georgia. They are. In regards to his namesake, parnelli has said, quote, my mother named me after a judge, the most successful person she knew. Due to the crushing effects of The Great Depression and a damaging drought, Parnell's family was forced to leave behind their 52 acre farmland and move out west to California when he was only two years old. Parnell's father spent some time working on farms north of San Diego to support his family. 5 years later, they moved to Torrance, California, to be closer to family during the height of World War II. His father traded farming for the sea when he began working in nearby shipyards that help support the war effort. Speaking of naming your kid after successful people, I was named after two my dad's bosses. Oh, wow. Yeah, James duggan and Edward deegan. My name's James Edward Humphrey. And my dad was like 26 when I was born. And he named me after two of his bosses. As like a bet to get a race. Oh my God. I love that. Nice piece of trivia. That's Dave pumphrey. Man, your life would have been so much different if you went by your middle name. Edward Ed pumphrey. It sucks. Ed pumphrey. Ed pumphrey, nice to meet you. Big Ed pumphrey. When he was 15, Parnell's parents divorced. As the oldest of three children, parnelli had to enter the workplace to support his splintered family. Parnelli found a job at a nearby stable, which is what spawned his interest in his first love, horses. Why are you looking? I don't know. You like horses too? Huh? You like horses? I like horses, ironically. I don't like them. I'm really scared of them. And I think it's weird how people talk about them. You're like, that Doug is cute. That cat is cute. Yeah. That raccoon is cute. People are like, that horse is beautiful. I know. That horse is majestic. It's like, all right. Weirdo. Yeah. My sister is like super into horses. And now she works with them. And I imagine it's like at a law firm. Hey, Billy, you got those. Ignorant I am of office. Crap. What's the thing offices have? Memos. Build a horse. Yeah, but anyway, her whole life, she's been so into them, and it's just like, I've never really understood the horse. Do you have enough land in a task editor? That was the thing. She always wanted a horse and it's like we don't we have like half, it's like a quarter acre or backyard or something. It was tiny. Quarter acre sounds huge. For a horse. You got to have a lot of land for it. It's not big for even a human. Really? Yeah. I want to know how big my apartment is in acres now. Did you ever go to my house in palos verdes? Yeah.

"Bernie Madoff, Bernie ecclestone, Bernie Mac. No, no. Do not besmirch the name of Bernie Mac. Bernie max, my favorite comedian of all time. Stand up. Are you scared of you motherfuckers? And he's got like this Bill Cosby sweater on. It's the funniest I scared of you. I was watching Transformers the other day for some reason and Bernie Mac is in the first one. It's a car dealer. I gotta watch these so good. RIP. Also, I know who you were thinking. I'm not going to get political Nolan. I'm trying to think of another Bernie. That would be a funny tag on that. But I can't. But American people. All right. That has nothing to do. The American people need to know. Ellen, let me hear your Bernie. Let me be clear. Hey, at least you guys recognize. That was great. When you do burning, you have to just let your jaw go loose and you do a little bit of Lisp and you do a little spit, spit a little spit when you talk. We're master impressionist here. Anyway, gurney essentially calls for an advocacy group that represented team interests and helped promote you sex national championship. He also hoped the group could help negotiate television rights sponsorship agreements and race purses. See, that song very prudent, yes. Very good. Yeah, yeah. In November of 1978 November. Is there any info team? Gurney and fellow team owners, Roger Penske, and pat Patrick presented this proposal to the very same you sack board that they thought we're going to do a horrible job. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it was rejected. Pat Patrick isn't pat short for Patrick. Patrick Patrick? Well, yes. Well, the thing is yes. No, you're right. You should not hold any politicians on any sort of pedestal. That's inevitably let you down. At some point. And because of either who they are or the system that they must act in. So in order to determine. Gurney, Penske and Patrick and three other team owners officially broke away from yusak to found cart, not only as an advocacy group, but as its own racing circuit. Well, that's like a weird way to put the weird term circuit. Racing authority? It's on series, basically. But it's serious. Not as an advocacy group, but as its own racing series. This was the beginning of the most popular and recent contemporary use of the term champ car. Since it was the name given by the governing body of cart. What? What? What? Well, I think this is where we should mention to the listener that this is one of the most confusing stories in motor sport here because of this terminology. Yeah. And if we do get anything wrong, we're not the first ones to get it wrong. But also you can email at us. Or send a letter via balloon. Yeah, the first kart race was held March 11th, 1979. Yusak was not pleased. The organization responded by announcing that each of the breakaway groups entries for the Indianapolis 500 had been rejected because they were, quote, not in good standing with yusak. That's their right. It was a bold move. Since it affected 19 cars, including entries driven by Al Unser, Bobby Unser, Johnny Rutherford, and Gordon johncock. Oh, not Gordon johncock. Gordon. Two names are penises. Put together had won 8 of the last 11 Indy 500 races. Dang, that John cut. Pretty good, man. The cart owners went to court where you sack was forced to hold an additional qualification round on the day before the race for the rejected 6 as they were called. Wow. They sued you, sack, and you sack had to hold another round of qualifications for the you sac teams that they had banned from the track. Gotcha. Okay. Peace was only temporary. In total, 20 races were held in 1979, with 13 as part of the new cart championship. For the 1980 season, the new president of the brickyard John Cooper tried bringing you sac and card together to jointly sanction a series called the championship racing league. The agreement lasted for four races before falling apart. Cart proved to be the more successful organization of the two. Well yeah, I mean you got like all those big guys. You got gurney. You got the OGs. You got the heart. John cocky. Gordon Bobby, bob. Nice to meet you man. Gordon John Koch. Ali, you do the work. Okay, go. You're out of cart. Okay, go back to you. Quickly, the you sac championship trail of other races was displaced by the cart series. By the end of 1981, the only use act sanctioned asphalt championship race was the Indianapolis 500. Everything else was cart. Wow. From there, cart used that leverage to effectively seize control of Indy, even though technically you sac remain the sanctioning body for the 500. Wow. Dang, that's my position. Through the 1980s and into the mid 1990s, kart racing was the most popular auto racing series in the country, behind star drivers like the answers, the andrettis, and Bobby Rahal. Ironically, it was during this era that fans began referring to the cars as IndyCars, despite the strife between Indianapolis and cart. In part because the American open wheel championship had been officially renamed the cart PPG Indy car World Series. Oh my God. Or CA RT PPG ICW S okay, so before we were talking about cart series and how the cars were quickly known as champ cars racing in IndyCar, even though champ cars were what you sack drove before cart was around. And now, the cart series is IndyCar. And they're driving champ cars. But people call them IndyCars. It's all just, you know, nomenclature at this point. People switching around names. We're just swimming in an open cliche right now. In the open Claire. Open Claire. I'm in an open Claire relationship. Cart soon tried to emulate the overseas popularity of Formula One, adding an emphasis on road courses and street circuits in addition to oval track. Smart. No, cart. The different courses were initially popular, but also called for a new kind of driver. Americans who had built their skills on the paved oval tracks were pushed out by Europeans, South Americans and Australians who'd been trained from childhood as road racers.

There's something about the Clarkson men that puts them in the right place at the right time. Shortly after Jeremy's accident, he ran into an old family friend who was a general manager of the local paper, the rotter ham advertiser. The two got to talking, and the family friend told him he should apply for the paper. Jeremy had an admittingly slim resume. But as absolute luck would have it, he had an even deeper connection to the paper. His grandfather, a doctor, had delivered the editor's first child during a World War II air raid. The editor was still so grateful for the grandfather's help that he gave Jeremy a job. At first, Jeremy wasn't a great reporter. He often forgot why he was interviewing someone, including a bereaved woman, and couldn't keep up a professional facade to save his life. According to the scene, forget why he's interviewing a crying woman. According to Les Payne, a coworker who shared a desk with Jeremy, quote, it was a younger version of the jammy Clarkson you see on TV. He mucked him and the rest of the office, but he was very much a man who expressed his own opinions. My name's Les Payne. Old crush your skull like a walnut. After training at the advertiser, Jeremy moved on to write for the rockdale observer, Wolverhampton express and star, and then lincolnshire life and the associated Kent newspapers. His first outlet as a motor journalist was for the shropshire star. Jeremy said, quote, I started small on the shropshire star with a little Peugeot and Fiat and worked my way up to Ford Granada's and rovers until about 7 years. I was allowed to drive an Aston Martin lagonda. It was ten years before I drove my first Lamborghini. Dude, if that's the case, I'm kicking his ass. Yeah. I drove a Lamborghini in Italy after like three years. You drove the Pagani. Huayra BC after two years. That's crazy. Good timeline. Good timeline. I didn't even ever even have never even driven a for Granada. Regardless of timelines, Jeremy couldn't shake the feeling that he didn't want to work for anyone else. Jeremy was living in Fulham and was surrounded by small businesses. He just needed an idea to start his own. The final straw came when he came home from work to his then girlfriend and started telling her about the new office furniture. A new at that moment that I had to leave. Jeremy later told BBC Radio four because when new office finished become so important that you even mention it, peck your bags, get out, move 200 miles away. He doesn't always talk like that. I'm working on the subtleties of the oh, true. In 1984, at age 24. Oh, he's younger than my mom. That is crazy. Jeremy finally made the looks way older than him. Like if someone was like Jeremy Clarkson's 75 years old. Yeah, you believe it. Yeah. He looks, he looks, I think it's because he's probably smokes like two packs a day on this. Not anymore, but he did for a long time. Those Brits love their ciggies. Sorry. At age 24, Jeremy finally made the leap and founded the motoring press agency alongside fellow journalist Jonathan gilt and started conducting road tests for local newspapers and automotive magazines. Oh, interesting, so it's like a private you just like your contractor basically. That's kind of cool. In 1986, Jeremy became a regular contributor to basically like a motor journalist pimp. Sure. I thought you were going to say a normal freelancer today. But pimp is also good. Didn't he have people working for him that he would send out? Oh, probably. In 1986, Jeremy became a regular contributor to performance car magazine, a gig he kept up until 1993. Three years later, in 87, Jeremy was hit with the Clarkson family luck once more when he met Top Gear researcher John Bentley at a citron launch. Citron is a French home. We don't really mention that often on anything we do. Well, they do make some fast front wheel drive. The only time we mention them is when they break like a Nurburgring record for the fastest front wheel drive. And I think Sebastian Loeb, another driver, we don't really talk about that much. Rally cars. He drove rally cars for Citroen for a long while and he was dominated. Let us know if you want us to do an episode on Sebastian Loeb. Or Crone. Very fun. We promise we'll learn how to say it before. Citron. John Bentley later said that Jeremy was, quote, was just what I was looking for. An enthusiastic motoring writer who can make cars on tele fan. He was opinionated and irreverent, rather than respectfully Poe faced. The fact that he looked and sounded exactly like a 20 something ex public schoolboy didn't matter. Nor did the impression there was a hint of school bully about him. I knew he was the man for the job. It's safe to say if you know who Jeremy Clarkson is, it's from top gear. But Top Gear as a show had existed for a full 11 years before Jeremy signed on. I had always wondered about this. If you've never seen it, old Top Gear focused on key motoring related topics that could be explained in a 30 minute format, including road tests, new cars, consumer advice, road safety, and motor sport. It was very like if you've seen motor week, like older, it was kind of like that. The new Pontiac Grand Prix I love what's John. Is it John Davis? He's like Garfield guy? Yeah, Josh. Yeah, also hosted motoring. The

"Such an enormous impact. So the reason that he popped over the curb was because he was trying to warm up the tires too aggressively on the exit of the pit lane. And just spun out right into the path. His car and his body were left in pieces. For a few seconds, they accident didn't seem that bad. I hardly felt a thing. My helmet didn't even get a dent. But then I looked in front of me and saw no front of the car and no legs. As for those who witnessed the crash up close, the scene looked like something out of a war movie. Cart doctor Terry tramiel and his team rushed to the scene of the crash, but when they arrived, the doctor slipped and fell in what he soon be leaking oil, but the reality was shockingly worse. He looked up and saw a river of sonar's blood flowing from the shattered vehicle. When I got there, I asked, where are Alex's legs? Remembers tramiel? Your mind says one thing in the eye says something else. You're looking at and you're looking in something just wasn't right. It was almost in slow motion and it was deathly quiet. It was perfectly clear. No sound at all. Sonari lost 70% of his blood. Jeez. And his heart stopped multiple times as he was rushed off the track and airlifted to a hospital in Berlin. He spent several days in a medically induced coma, but his life was miraculously saved. However, despite the heroism of both the track medics and German doctors, the 34 year old would wake up to find both of his legs amputated above the knee. So the official count is his heart stopped 7 times. Jeez. That's insane. I actually heard stuff every time I look at you. And not because of either. As for the cause of the crash, Jimmy Anderson, Zanardi's engineer was stumped by the telemetry analysis, there were no signs of rear skidding, acceleration was consistent, but the car had spun out in an incredible way. The data led them to believe that it was a cruel combination of cold tires, dirt scattered on the pit lane, and oil residue on the track, which was most likely from a different vehicle earlier in the race. Waluigi, a silver lining to the accident, was that as a result of the heroic work of the trackside medics, safety teams across motor sport upgraded their medical equipment to improve traumatic injury treatment. They affectionately called the new set of gear, the Zanardi kit. The results have been undeniably positive as the kit was key in saving James Hinchcliffe's life when he punctured an artery in a 2015 crash in Indianapolis. In a split second, Alex Zanardi went from being one of the top racers in the world to a double amputee with an entirely new set of challenges. So began the next chapter of Zanardi's life. But while anyone else would understandably need time away from racing, after such a life altering experience, the Italians restless competitive spirit was far from dimmed. Mario Andretti said that when he called Zanardi's home soon after the crash, his wife, daniela answered and said, Alex isn't home right now. He's carrying on as always simply had his appendix out. I think the only way he'll slow down is if I kill him. He was like what? Yeah. Zanardi spent a lot of his initial post injury time in the garage. Like the bikes and go karts of his youth, he was determined to improve upon an already crafted design. But this time he was tinkering with his new prosthetic legs. The resulting limbs were more flexible and sturdy, and before long, a return to racing was in his sights. When I lost my legs, it didn't present itself as a great occasion to make my life a better sudden. But in fact, it did. Because all of the things I'm doing these days are directly related to my new condition, so I think I can call what happened probably the greatest opportunity of my life. Then less than 20 months after his crash, Zanardi was back at the track that almost killed him. Using hand operated brake and acceleration controls, Zanardi's ceremoniously completed the final 13 laps at speeds that would have seen him qualify in 5th place. Afterwards, Zanardi flashing his trademark smile, told the media quote, I don't feel like I was out of the car for let alone. By 2003, Zanardi was racing in the European touring car championship with the help of a modified BMW three 20 I and legendary racer slash team manager Roberto rival. That year's an already drove at the WTCC season finale in Monza and finished in a very respectable 7th place. That's great. With these races under his belt, Zanardi proved himself that he was both mentally and physically ready to compete at the highest possible level yet again. Formula One driver of recent that got in a crash kind of messed his hand up. Robert kubica? Robert kobi. And it reminds me of that. But his entries weren't as bad, right? I mean, not as bad as an artist, but he's still like, it really ruined his arm, but he came back to Williams for a season. Brought that oil company sponsorship with him or lean. So in 2004, Alex joined the WTCC circuit with BMW's team, Italy, Spain. Zanardi won his first race in August of 2005 and finished the season in tenth overall, while claiming the Italian super touring car championship in the same year. Hell yes, an Artie. Zanardi competed with BMW for four more seasons, winning three more WTCC races throughout it, the prosperous run. Before announcing his retirement at the end of the 2009 season.

When F one racer Alex Zanardi started the American memorial race on September 15th, 2001, he was already a champion. The fearless Italian was adored by fans, respected by his peers and considered one of the best drivers on the planet. As the race that allows its ring wore on, Zanardi found himself at the front of the pack. He had won back to back cart titles in America just two years prior, and to capture his first F one win would send his rising star even higher into the stratosphere. But fate had other plans. By the end of the race, Zanardi was on a helicopter to Berlin, clinging to his life. Moments before, he and his race car were split in half at a 190 mph by a fellow driver after Zanardi spun out of control exiting pit row. Crash. Days later, Zanardi miraculously woke up in a hospital bed, but looked down to see that both of his legs were gone. His career and his life as he knew them were over. What circumstances led to this pivotal moment in Alex Zanardi's life. How did the race world respond to the seismic event? And even more intriguing, how does one recover mentally, much less physically from such a horrifying accident? If there weren't so many people who witnessed this man's incredible journey, you'd think that most of what we're about to tell you is some kind of high octane fairytale that isn't humanly possible. Well, none of this is fiction. Today on past gas, we're taking a deep dive into

Dude, hockey day, I hock once a day, dude. Lovely. Well, welcome, but welcome to pass gas, everybody. I forgot to do an intro last week. So what do you know who he was? Nobody was so confused.

Hawk a day, don't lock away, you know what I mean? And that second laugh you heard is Joe Weber. Slime off a slug's back. Yeah, it's gonna catch on. I hope it does. I hope it does. Can't wait for that slime off of slugs back T-shirt. Yeah, this week we're talking about Ford in their financial struggles through the 2008 economic crisis. As well as some further reading on their past, I drive a Ford and for a long time, I think I was kind of like hesitant to call myself a Ford guy or a Mustang guy, but can you cover up all the badges? No, no. I don't know. I've mixed thoughts on de badging cars. Let's just jump right into our story this week. After I get my drink here, it has two beverages. I've got two cups. Okay. And he keeps taking a sip of both of them back to back. I can only assume that the mug, which is the first one constantly, is full of Yeager Meister. Oh yeah. And then the second one is water to chase it down. Yeah. Well, no, just having a scratchy voice this week today this week. I woke up thinking, okay, I'm going to make some tea this morning. Yeah, walk us through that, open my drawer, no tea. So I've just have hot water with lemon juice. Which is working. Anyway, I call that free tea because you can get it at a restaurant for free. Hey, we'll get some of that free tea. Yeah. But you have to disguise it, you say, okay, can I just get a cup of hot water? It's water, so it's free, and then later you ask for a slice of lemon. Awesome. I'm going to try that later. All right. On January 1st, 1999, for the first time in decades, a member of the Ford family was in sole control of the company as CEO. Bill Ford was itching to take control after former CEO Jacques Nasser had spent a few years destroying the company's morale and creating a business network that was as tangled as the cords behind a television. Nice. Nice. He cord management. That's part of being an adult. Get some zip ties or some of those little bands with Velcro. Those little clips, yeah. I got a whole roll of those things. If you guys need them, just hit me up. While the truth is guys, is that Jack Nasser wasn't really the problem at Ford. It was just his turn to step up to the plate and take a swing. The structure and all of its moving parts, which had been formulated over decades, was the real issue. Even the best carpenters can't build a house on Iran foundation. You guys know that, right? Your big contractors. I mean, yeah, Joe and I do run one of the largest contracting companies in Los Angeles. That's right. Yeah, that's why we know so much about osha. For much of its history, Ford had repeatedly been victim of the whims of its powerful CEOs. Going all the way back to its original founder Henry Ford, the company habitually got lost in the throes of a cult of personality. The larger than life CEOs often centered the company around themselves, believing that they were the chosen one. Chosen to carry forward to the top. Bill Ford knew it was his job to change that culture. Despite his privileged position as a member of one of America's wealthiest and most powerful families, he understood that his company was driven by its strong relationship with his workers, combined with quality and affordable vehicles. He needed to get the company back to that. He just didn't know how. Bill Ford, I've seen him in interviews a couple times. Seems the most like Homer Simpson out of anyone, any real human that I've ever seen. Matt has met him. Oh, really? Bill had some helpful ideas for sure. Using the interfacing slogan back to basics. Bill Ford divested in most of nassar's ego boosting pet projects and allocated money back towards engineering and manufacturing. He encouraged engineers to look for quote singles and doubles rather than the home runs Nasser demanded. Small ball. It's a whole basis of Moneyball, baby. That's what you gotta do with get your fun go bat, hit some dingers to short play pepper, you know? You can't go top rope all the time, you know what I mean? Yeah. Yeah. I said that the other day and Nolan was like, what are you saying? That was Andy saying that. It was one of the funniest things I've heard Andy just the way he said it was amazing. Anyway, Bill Ford invested heavily in hybrid technology, a bold bet for the time. For a guy who got the job largely on the basis of his last name, he actually made some very smart decisions. But those smart decisions weren't enough. Bill's efforts were like trying to plug a hole in the Titanic with your thumb. And since the Titanic split in half yeah, you should have gone like this. You should have got maybe for you guys, but I got a big ass thumb. Yeah, so you just go. Yeah. I love doing physical comedy on a podcast audio media. It's all in the sound effect. In 2003, Ford stock had reached its all time low. And by 2005, the company's credit rating was reduced to junk bond status. Its factories were only at 79% capacity, and they were still adding more factories. They were losing. Ford was losing $590 for every car they built, and bankruptcy was on the table. We often focus on the 2008 crash, but Ford was already tanking well before then. We should probably make like a Thunderbird drift car. Like a 2005 Thunderbird drift car. Was there to 5 Thunderbird? Or whatever like the retro future wanted. 2003. Oh, 2000. I was thinking 90. I mixed up the decades. Oh, the one that looked like a Taurus? Right, yeah, yeah. Long boy Taurus, yeah. Anyway, when Bill Ford received an email from his cousin and Ford that read, quote,.

"It was also a hard top convertible. So bond could enjoy fresh air while shooting lasers. After being featured in the living daylights, Aston Martin once again got attention from consumers and IE, they got big business. The great press and increased sales got the attention of Ford, which would lead to Ford eventually buying and assuming majority ownership of Martin by 1991. The relationship between forward nest and Martin would help modernize and grow the company. It led to more models, including the DB 7. Vantage and the DB 9. Things were looking up for Aston Martin in the relationship between the automaker and the film franchise is going well. But what came next is what would solidify the relationship between Aston Martin and bond for the next several decades. The man behind the Bond film franchise broccoli. Knew what made the spy film special. And he knew the right car was key. He also knew how to market and sell a movie, which meant a lot of corporate sponsorship. In 1995, broccoli sign an exclusive product placement deal with BMW for the next three Bond movies. Oh yeah, I know this era. Yeah dude, pierce bray is neon with the Z three. No, it's not just a car for secretaries. There's a Z 8. Late as Z 8 and one of them, but they debuted the Z three in goldfinger. Oh, nice. Hop in. Halle Berry, right guys. Halle Berry. Halle Berry. Berry. Hollow, luya. Yeah, I remember it, yeah, then they saw it in half in the movie. Oh yeah, yeah. Fans were not happy about the BMW partnership. They saw Bond as the ultimate British spy and everything he touches should stay distinctly British. Even when the producers switched up cars for Roger Moore's Bond, he was still driving British cars. Bond driving a German BMW did not work for many fans. I mean, Germany bombed the out of Britain. Luckily, broccoli apparently knew what he was doing. And while having a sponsorship deal with BMW for those three movies, which all heavily feature beamers, the producers of bonds still managed to slip a DB 5 into every one of the films. They could sodden half and then it's a DB 5 underneath. And this worked out in the long run for both Aston Martin and the Bond franchise. By 2002 Ford owned Aston Martin and had the money and backing to take back the franchise from BMW. So the ultimate beamer Bond Pierce Brosnan. Finally, in a die another day, Aston Martin became the official Bond car once again. Starting with Timothy Dalton in the early 90s, asked Martin was back in the spy game. And with die another day in 2002 and Pierce Brosnan, the deal was done. Aston Martin was James Bond's car. It was also in the early 2000s the Aston Martin realized they could really market their cars and die another day was the first time since the 80s that Bond was driving a car you could actually buy granted without the lasers. I guess the DB 5 is like a classic. They did like HKS made some aftermarket lasers, I think for this car. Which is weird because they're Japanese company. Yeah, super weird. After Dalton left in our modern Bond Daniel Craig took over, the Aston Martin streak stayed. Unlike with previous Bond actor transitions, no one felt the need to change up Craig's cars. In fact, the director of Skyfall Sam Mendes brought back Connery's DB 5 to add some nostalgia to the film. That was a good choice in my mind. Oh, Skyfall was good. Yeah, Skyfall was really good. That was the one I couldn't remember. Was that the one with Javier? What are you from Florida? Caviar. Caviar. In Casino Royale, we get to see the origin story of Bond winning his original DB 5 in a poker game. Mendes even said in interviews that his love that Bond asked Martin goes way back. The DB 5 was part of my boyhood and it's part of my generation's boyhood. I had the toy with the ejector seat. I lost a little man that flew out and spent the rest of my childhood looking behind. Looking for him, then I spent the rest of my childhood looking for him behind various. You have no idea. It's so fuzzy. Look behind. But I never found the little man. Where's the little man? If anybody out there radio land is found my little man, you can email him to me. Okay, this is some creative license taken with Sam Mendes quote right there. I did literally Sam and as at Gmail. James sounded a little bit like Adam Sandler. She'd be like, oh, what a mixed with like Quentin Tarantino, but less energetic. That's a quote. Okay. Mendes brought it back full circle. And now it seemed like Daniel Craig will be driving an Aston Martin in the upcoming Bond film, No Time to Die, including you guessed it, the DB 5. I think that he's going to drive a Valkyrie at some point in that movie. Because that's the next logical set. Well, comes out today. Oh, let's go see it. We should go see it. Yeah. The company itself is doing well and we will just have to wait to see how the new Bond movie does, which this will air probably three weeks from now. So you guys probably have a better understanding. But this partnership seems to be in it for the long haul. Of course, the actual cars used for filming now have stories of their own. In 2019, one of the original Aston Martin DB 5 used for filming gold finger sold at auction for $6.4 million. These auctions and private sales happen all the time. But what about when one of these $1 million movie icons is stolen? There is one car from goldfinger that has been missing for some time. An American businessman Anthony puglia said who's an avid car collector and Bond fan bought one of the original four DB 5s. The chassis number DP two 16 slash one to be exact. Used for filming in goldfinger. In fact, it was the only one of the prop cars that still had working gadgets. He bought it for $275,000 in 1986 at a Sotheby's auction. That's actually not bad. No, it's good. In 1986, that's a little money though. Yeah. That's like before the market really presented itself. Right now, like the idea of cars selling for millions of dollars is not it's relatively new. Like the idea of investing in cars is a relatively new idea. Especially movie cars. What was that? Didn't they just sell Paul Walker's Supra? Yeah. And they went for like, I can't remember what it was. But yeah, like million.
