Tesla Is Updating Roadster Design

"All right so let's get into the roadster the roadster starting yesterday has been on display at the petersen automotive museum in l. a. And once you know it on the display sign they actually broke some news on the tesla roadster so this was shared out by black model. Three on twitter says quote demonstrating the versatility of electric power and adding extra distinction to the cars already. High-performance unannounced space x package would output the roadster with cold air rocket thrusters position at the rear allowing for a zero to sixty acceleration. Time of one point one seconds rate largely unprecedented modern road cars and so not sure why they added largely unprecedented. I think they would have been safe to say completely. Unprecedented there since they do specify road cars. But anyway while we've obviously heard about the space x package before. This is the first time that we've seen the actual mention of a true zero sixty time at a mind blowing one point one seconds yulon today did confirm this on twitter saying quote. Yes with the spacex rocket thruster option. Package it will be safe but very intense probably not wise for those with a medical condition same as hardcore rollercoaster. And it's also been a little bit up in the air in the past how these thrusters gift tussle doug on this path yuan today saying on twitter quote it will have high pressure air rocket thrusters behind a license plate that flips down bong james bond and so that concept is an idea that you on has brought up in the past but i think when he talked about it on the joe rogan podcast. Maybe a couple months back. He still sounded a little bit uncertain with that. So it sounds like based on this tweet and also them now confirming this one point one seconds zero to sixty time. Maybe tesla's made a little bit of progress. In terms of finalizing the design of these spacex option roadster in this tweet thread on also had replied to someone asking question about the model s. and had referred to the thrusters. So just for clarification sake. In case anyone saw that you didn't clarify that he was talking about the roadster there so no space package for the plat or platte plus model s. and then also replied to you a photo of the roadster on display at the museum saying and i think he got. Autocorrect here. production article look different parentheses. Better presumably meant vehicle there instead of article.

Wasn't it that I think that's when Peterson yeah. Seven years age eighty when he died, but of course places still operating and doing well as you as said. It's just it's A. It's a great place to go, and as you've mentioned, spend more than a day there. If you can were a day I know, it's tough to spend more than a day, but if you can spend day, there I'd say you're getting your. Your money's worth out of museum for sure and the museum itself is. is a celebrity in its own right. has its own histories building as you mentioned Adam Corolla held his tenth anniversary celebration for his podcast there, so maybe we can. Can do live podcast at the Pierce Museum. One day it is involved in the death of the notorious B. I g, yeah, right? That was the last place he was seen.

"I guess that predates the days when he worked for GM of course and was fulltime on the GM design Steph. But her one of the things about Fatty arbuckle he was. He was like a by. I said he was a big car guy at the time and really loved automobiles. He was one of the first celebrities one of the first stars to be able to do this because he was also the first movie star that would make was was making on contract over a million dollars a year. He's the very first actor to be able to do that while. So that's kind of his notch in history. I mean other than having some you know some good films of course but Apparently a good actor. Mr Buckle Fed Had some skeletons in his closet. I was trying to avoid it. But yeah he he I don't want to get into that. 'cause he's got a whole history there as well but Yasim definite skeletons in that closet while we're on the subject of things that are turning a bit dark there's also the nineteen sixty seven boot hill. Express Hot Rod. Oh you know what I'm talking about. I do have seen this one. I'd I did get to see this. You saw this did yeah. This is nut so ray farmer Built built a boot Hill Express. They took a funeral coach from the eighteen hundreds and they made it a hot Rod. Yeah now you know what Kurt and I had talked about this on an earlier episode when we did The the seventies sixties and seventies hot Rod Kerma cars we It was an actual coach. It said it said wasn't is said to have taken one of the James Gang members. Yeah I think to This final resting place at Boot Hill. Graveyard is that. Do you think that's true or do you think that's That's a myth. It's tough to verify this tall tale territory you know. I wonder but in hot rods. All have the these stories about them. I I like that though I like. I like the you know the people can kind of dig into it if they want to trace it back. That's always fun while I know it. Sounds like we're maybe jumping around a little bit. We're doing that because we want to give you Kinda give you a broad view of just. How many different unique vehicles there are in fact? I am probably going to return when I go back to that area of the world because they have some upcoming exhibits that I wanNA see. I was thinking about this after we did our famous car collectors episode. I think Scott mentioned James. Hatfield metallica right. Yeah that's right. So the James Hatfield collection is coming to the Pearson Museum he has an entire collection that he's exhibiting in the museum and it started. The opening day is today as we record this song. No kidding I'd love to go to that because he's got. I think he was a collector of hot rods. Right right dot rods and some some really old class. I mean we're talking. Nineteen thirties iron. That type of era vehicle that vintage era I think oh no I think it's a one day thing now boy. Well you know what that's to Bay. We'll have you're listening to this episode live within an otherwise otherwise Just missed out on the in the head field collection. I'm sure there's plenty of other collections To go to an and check out. That's that's the one thing too. I mean you go to their Their website they've always got you up to date on what's coming in. What's what's leaving. You know the dates of the shows and everything so if you're in the area of You know the Peterson definitely worthwhile. It's not really that expensive to go. It's it's relatively a cheap afternoon But man there's there's so many beautiful beautiful vehicles there it is. It really is a different type of museum altogether. Yeah highly recommended though. I'M NOT GONNA I'M NOT GONNA start saying one museum is better another since I feel like I'll be on the road for a lot of these. Yeah but he's very different for Nagoya Museum. And if you go to the Peterson. Museum be aware that. Like the natural history museums or the Smithsonian's this is at the very least of full day visit. Don't go in at like four thirty thinking you're going to run through. No no no. This is This is a a long after noon or a full day. And even like you said you can go back and check it out. Hey It's been henry and Marcus hosts of the last podcast on the left are shows dedicated to uncovering hilariously horrifying stuff. And now we're only.

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

Yeah is worlds away from like the Heath Ledger Joker, oh, yeah, or the one that we just saw recently the backstory off the joker. Oh, yeah! I guess it's Pretty Darcus well. How he actually became that person, and it's just you're right. It's a completely different character altogether so yeah, maybe, but it's still just doesn't fit that character very well. It's an oddball piece of the collection I mean. There's there's a lot of those the you'd mentioned other movie cars. Yeah, delorean, a blade runner There was I have to be on. That was the only exhibit where I had some. Would say mixed feelings because there's nothing wrong with vehicles per. Se, but you know you get up close, and you know especially with SCIFI vehicles. You can see like hovercraft. A glider of some sort and we know that that technology doesn't exist in the real world right I accept that we're there to see the design, but then when you get closer and closer things started to break down and go. Oh, that's. At is, plywood? You could tell that summer meant to be filmed from far away. Rights others are meant for close ups in those of the refined very carefully. Put together. You know well done ones. That's where you know. They got the close ups in the in the you know maybe the person inside and they're doing you know like. Driving shots or whatever but it from a distance. These cars don't have to be all that you know. They just have to have the same general shape. You'RE GONNA. Have somebody different driving them a stunt driver? Whoever right right so that doesn't necessarily matter I. Think One of the best examples I've ever seen, but not person were some of the hardcastle McCormick cars. The coyote remember the coon Coyote Kit car that they had in that McCormack, the the convict in this whole thing it's it's very improbable setup for the whole host one. I haven't thought about Robert. Yeah, yeah, but it's a great. List loved to watch that show just for that just for the coyote because cool, and they had a few that we're really well put together. And then they had some that were just piles of garbage I. Mean They just? It were five or glass shells, and they were on top of like a really rough frame, and but they drove they run, and they ran and drove, but those are the ones they would jump over Hay Bales, and you know they weren't so careful with it because they didn't. They knew that they could build another one quickly. But if you look at you, know some of the stills from the actual film itself or or the television show. You're able to tell you know like this is really really rough. You can see the the intensity with which they focused on details in some cars versus others that are a little bit worried like put together a bit more sloppily, you know right or the rough around the edges, so you were there at the museum and you're seeing things like you know. Tack Welds, and you've really saw plywood on a car like you see in like it's not metal. It's painted wood and yeah, yeah, what about any other like really agreed? Just things that you saw. Cars that were standouts for like. You. Know this is the I can't even believe. This is in here in this museum, but it's part of movie history. Yeah, I, just WANNA. Keep I WANNA. Keep it positive. Like I ate. If anything to put a positive spin on, it it just. The craftsmanship and the ingenuity of the people involved in the production, because until you get up close to something like A. Till you get close to some of these vehicles and I'm not going to name specific ones. To get up close this of these vehicles. You know when you see them on the screen. It looks real. My car is kind of like that now. Yeah, what's going on? Nothing terrible, it's just you know from a distance looks pretty good. Still the vacuum it. No I think it's just getting older, and there's some dents and dings and things from being in a parking lot. Security sitting on the trunk with their rifle. The rifle butts you that they always causes a lot of scuff and dents and things, but now just you know the the normal like minor flaws that come along with owning a vehicle for a certain amount of time, and you know you're less pleased with close up as as you are. Then you know I think it becomes like a twenty foot car. You're happier with twenty feet away. Then you are up close when you're polishing the car. And you know just all the flaws and the minor imperfections that are there, but I think a lot of these museum cars are like that, too. They're also many of them here that are. Pristine, and he just beautiful beautiful examples, and maybe I'm I don't know if I'm GONNA. Lead you to something that wasn't there. At this time there were four or five years ago on the ground floor. They had a display when I was there of French manufactured cars or or build cars Bugatti the towel. Oh, I. Think was another one that they had. But there beautiful beautiful flowing designs that were painted, just like it looked like they had twenty or thirty coats of paint on them and chrome. That was in real decorative organic flowing curves, and everything is your cars. But that was also in that controversy was have going on that. They were going to get rid of kind of the American culture. The the the south in particular, the South South Southern California car, culture type vehicles and changed the whole thing over to like these French designs, because the the new owner of the place, and there was a lot of back and forth talk about what they were doing because they were selling some cars off I think at. At the time right? People were worried that they were going to completely convert over to a different type of museum that it was never intended to be like. Where where does the line stop? Yeah, exactly yeah, because they.

"Yeah just like Fernie Star Wars Fans. The name of that tiny. Yoda in the man. Delorean is not baby. Yoda but everybody calls it baby. Of course yes. So this is why they want us to call it like paypal transport. I think or something like that. Yeah some the way less. Tv So this mobile is a nineteen ninety eight Cadillac and this is one of the only examples of one that a pope mobile that was open. Top constructed on amount modern chassis. Gm Mexico built it for John. Paul the second just to use on his trip to give a speech at a stadium in Mexico City. This is the glass box on. This does not and good thing to mention Scott because he never actually road and the Cadillac. There were security concerns about the open design however as the manufacturers are quick to point now. The pope did bless the car on the visit. So it's it's got cosign really. Yeah and it has the seat mechanism that we talked about earlier. Pope Mobiles. Yeah you know where so on several pull mobiles the people seat where they actual pope sits is on this hydraulic system. That can raise or lower the seat. Oh that's cool. Yeah esplanade highlight that and that's the ones that have that bulletproof shambling do that too. All that is good. That's a that's a cool feature. I think that's that's interesting to be able to raise and lower yourself into into that box in the glass box. See this is yeah. This is where the dictators need to Be Humble because no matter how powerful you are as dictator. I don't think there are people who are building specific cars for you to take a field trip starting to laugh when you're describing when you said that. The pope bless this vehicle. I got a picture my head of like George Costanza in Seinfeld like buying a car that had claimed to have been blessed by the Pope or something because he was Jon voight car right right but it wasn't the actor Jon Remember. He bought a car. That was all right. I have I feel like it's one of those moments where I have to say this because I know I have many many years ago. There used to be a chairman of of Chrysler named Bob Eaton and it was back at the time when My wife and I at the time we worked for a company. That was like a supplier to Chrysler television station. And it was like their internal television station and time we bought a Jeep. Cherokee that was owned by a guy named Bob. Eaton but it wasn't the Bob Eaton so anybody later. That didn't know like past us. You know the past the ownership. Yes if they were to trace back the ownership of that vehicle. They might be confused to think. That was Bob. Eaton's jeep which I thought was kind of funny because somewhere down the line that's GonNa get confused still around it was like a ninety nine. Cherokee read one anybody out there knows of this one. Watch out for that That fake on the on the auction block. You know if it happens but But it was not the Bob Eaton but I always got a chuckle out of that thinking it was. It was like Castanza's Jon Voight is there. I mean okay. I'm totally unaware of this I don't know the answer here. But is it legal for private citizens to own? Ah Pope Mobile. I guess it is. Yeah sure why not. There's no law against it okay. One one of the post recently owned or is still does maybe owned a Harley Davidson. Even he was like Mike biker. Wow Yeah so. He's got a great big Harley Davis I I don't know if he still owns it or if it's I don't remember which pope it was. I don't remember I. Just don't have the Pope Cycle. Yeah Yeah I'll have to opt to dig into that too. Maybe you'd want one of the quick thing. Yeah we're talking about the volt. The Vault Rather. Yeah Volt. Not that one I remember that we talked about a car called the deal a long time ago. It was the big hoax car remember. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah the whole story. The twisted tale of we give away too much. I think. That's that's a saga though. Check that out. That's one of our one of the most fascinating episodes of Don I. I loved that episode of of those episodes. I should say it was so much fun to research that. It was just a blast. At the Peterson they own one of the Dale cars. So probably if if you were able to get down there in the vault. I'm sure that it was down there somewhere. If it it's one of those cars that I doubt they will ever let go of no. I don't think that they would well. It certain that no one's going to drive it off. It's one thing that we do know. Yeah that it will it will. It will never make its way under the Non TO LA freeways. Yeah not under its own power weird story be involved with one of the high speed chases that we see from the helicopters. It's not going to happen. There's another really wildcard there to the nineteen twenty-three maith on an V6 t bucket. This engine is insane. The v Sixteen did not miss speak was built in the early nineteen nineties. Even though the cars from the twenties they took to Chevy three fifty. V8's and join them together. At the crankshaft there were only two of these engines ever built an only one was ever installed in a car And the egg heads Peterson. Say based on what they know about it. Probably five hundred fifty horsepower. Five hundred fifty pound foot torque AIDS. It's a monster and of course as you can imagine that chassis is pretty stretched. This one thousand nine hundred. Nineteen ninety is when they customize the engine. The four t bucket was built in twenty three. Yeah Okay Gotcha okay. So it's on that body but you know what's funny? I find this a little bit funny. So they're here they are. They're Frankenstein together a couple of three hundred. V8's right and and it's cool. It's cool thing to do. It's a neat. You know the neat looking vehicle. I'm sure it has a certain appearance. It's really interesting and unique but think about this. There was five hundred fifty horsepower. And there's a pile of horsepower back. Then I think about like the first production viper was somewhere around four hundred horsepower but it seems like a lot of sedans now around four hundred horsepower. You know or or close to it or three fifty or whatever and you know you got some of these I I guess a lot of other performance Lines OF CARS. You know like maybe. Bmw's or relax or whoever you know. A lot of their top and vehicles are in the five hundred some horsepower. Shir range right now for production vehicle. So it's funny that you know they're doing that Back then they just. The idea was just go bigger with everything right. I mean what a cool design though to throw it on an old model t though and you know what I think. Unless I'm giving something away here Ben. The model t that we want to talk about. Right Mongrel T. Let's get to it you want to because this is one of the ones that you brought up in a previous episode. Ooh And almost with disbelief. We looked it up because we couldn't I. I can't picture ever seen this car before. But you had You've seen it so one of the exhibits one of them rotating exhibits at the Petersen Museum. The time I visited was that Hollywood dream machine exhibit these vehicles from science fiction and fantasy as you said Scott movie cars. The guy a delorean up there. They've got some stuff from blade runner. They've got two vehicles from mad. Max Fury Road. Yeah which we didn't episode on and there were fascinating to see up close. They're very dirty. And and one of the things that was really the star of the show for me. Were all these barest. Designed batmobiles mobiles embarrassed. I should say bat vehicles because there's a bad cycle there as well. I guess they decided to go with the bat cycle instead of the Pope Cycle. Stop you from of course I keep interrupting but oh please. These cars are so cool. The Bat cycle there's detachable go-cart in the passenger side like in the What do you call that the the site card sidecar that Robin would ride in that headed? Attachable go-cart that would launch out of the site. That is so cool thing. I think I'd say you guys pictures of it. Yeah that thing. What surprised me. Is that little go. Cart thing is so small that I've I haven't seen a bunch of the classic Batman episodes the Adam West area But I feel like that's even for such a can't be sure there's probably too ridiculous for him to really use it too often because you would have to the best way to describe how you would have to ride. That thing is to Crouch on your feet do what they call like the Slavic Squat slobs but yeah and then and then take your hands and put them flat on the ground in front of your feet. And that's about your footprints on the on the go. I will tell you the guy that played robin. His name's Burt Ward rights and he was not necessarily toys now is about five foot eight. Okay so he's a smaller guy. But I mean when you look at him. In those old Batman episodes. He's also very thin build so he's not very large person. They probably built it knowing that he would be able to do it. I don't think that I could fit on this thing. I don't. I'm not much taller him but I'm heftier. I'm a bigger person than burt ward was when he was in the Batman movies. I'm not slim like that but maybe it was built knowing that he'd be able to accomplish this too. But yeah you're right. It's it's nearly impossible thing to get on. I've I've seen promotional photos of him in that position. You're talking about like on the cart ready to go. I don't remember seeing an episode where he actually used it though. I saw a still photograph of him on it. Yeah I think probably something that you know. The Movie Production Company or the Movie House sent out as promotional material. Oh for sure yeah before we bury the lead. Here's why we're talking about this general. Sorry I I again I. I took us on the wrong power. No no this is perfect. Because we're still in the World Batman and I did not know this. I'm sure many of our Batman fans in the audience advance the bat fans right. Should they already? I'm sure you all already heard this. But apparently the joker hadn't official vehicle of his own the jokers answer to the batmobile and cap woman had her own cat mobile. The joker mobile makes no sense for the joker to have no. It really doesn't. It's it's unusual vehicle for sure. It's not on brands. It has this Mongrel t- heavily customized We're talking like this seat. Backs are surfboards It's a hot ride model. Tiv built in nineteen sixty six. And it's so strange. It looks more like something that would be a beach boys phil well. There's a good reason for that right. I mean we did then look up history this car because we were curious about what happened and I guess apparently You can jump in here any time but paramount pictures in nineteen sixty six. I got a call looking for a vehicle to go into an Elvis Presley movie..

"Episode of the Pope Mobile Yeah. We're not the. Vatican technically doesn't like us to call them pope. Mobile I'm calling the pope. Mobile I mean I. think that's how everybody knows it. Yeah, just like Fernie. Star Wars fans, the name of that tiny Yoda in the man delorean is not baby, Yoda, but everybody calls it baby. Of course.

"Don't think it was now. So that was one of the most impressive things, and it's really tempting when you're in one of these museums to get too close, which is why they have the museum minders, their volunteers and so on. On Yeah and it's strange because I'm the guy wants to look under the vehicle. Want to look inside to see how the scene works out. especially in some of those land speed record vehicles Oh. Yeah, like I figure out exactly what's going on under the skin of those things written. Yeah, it's always fascinating, and that's just one example we get into some other exhibits, but the museum itself has twenty five galleries storing well over a hundred vehicles in those galleries, and that's only half of the collection if that, because in the basement. There is vaults. Vault if you pay a little bit extra. Have some connections and your? Life. I don't think they let kids in I think eighteen or over. Yeah, yeah, then you can go and view the vaults, collection and no photographs and no photographs. A tough thing to adhere too because you'll see some real gems down there. I mean, but they'll all eventually make themselves available on the floor. They'll cycle out. They will, but you're going to see some stuff down there. That really surprising interesting. You know, maybe even not fully restored yet. If they're working on them, you know the thing I love I love seeing that. That's what I remember. We had a conversation a longtime going back to Nashville I guess on. The Lane Motor Museum Yeah Yeah just outside of Nashville and that's one where you can get right around every. You can get right up to the cars. There's no ropes so as long as you don't touch, you can lean you, can even they even have the windows open on some? You can lean your head in if you want as long as you're holding your yourself backs your belts, nut, scraping anything or or right or whatever you carry, but they had a basement tour and it was fantastic..

Yeah, yeah, there was Let's see so they had. The Hollywood dream machines that was one of their big ones, and that was the one actually the most mixed feelings about this. This is like the movie cars right exactly exactly so you'll see some batmobiles. You'll see some George barris design. At I love that topic And then they had disruptors. They had some. Motorcycle design that a lot of racing Like. Groundbreaking racecars is a Bruce Meyers exhibit of these epic. Race cars ten of them from nineteen, twenty, nine to nineteen seventy-nine, and it's stunning. We're talking about historically important cars like the first production Shelby Cobra from sixty to cool the greer black prudhomme dragster, also from sixty to this one, one, two, hundred and thirty, seven of the two hundred and forty one races. It Ran Bo. Under you know driven by Don prudhomme The snake the. Yeah and They had a Bonneville Racer the twenty nine Ford some forty-seven. I'm sorry I'm still laughing at the snake nickname. That's a that's a great nickname to great nick combine. It depends on who you are. Yeah, well. Yeah, I, guess so, but if you drag racer. That's a cool navy drag racer. Did you can rationally support being called the snap here in the office I wouldn't want to. To be called the snake like like Oh. They're Scott. He's the sneaky snake. Yeah, I, think it's different when you're when you're nickname inserted between the first and last name as if it were a middle name, but if you were called snake like yes, nate Garin or snake Bolan. That's a good puzzle different. You know maybe like don the snake per dome. Yeah, sure different than. Snake, predom-, you're right. It is like his parents might have. named him snake.

And I l that's the the right thing to do apparently and I'm I'm not. I'm not on board with this whole thing. The texture bothers me immensely on 'em neither way and they fall apart. No no no. I'm saying like No. It's not one of those like like. I am upset by using it. I just can't use myself. I feel like they stick to my lips. They just feel weird. I don't feel like a straw supposed to feel so. I do tend to use a straw from drinking soda however when this whole Plastic Straw thing happened I get it. Get it you know. Do your best to make the world a better place and so on but the thing is that. The vast majority of plastic pollution in the ocean is coming from commercial fishing. It's not coming from UTAH. Johnny or gene America using plastic Straw when they go to McDonalds but we add our office. Now we only have paper straws. We don't have the flexible straws. Anymore is a shame. There's a superior Straw. Everybody loves the Bendy Strauss right. I mean I think everybody across the board. You know whether young you'll old you'll love the Bendy Straw so disappointing when you get one and you put it in the wrong way as we discover that it was the bendy one too late. I've done that before. Yeah it's worth worse but I've forgotten about the disappointment that leads to pointing. I guess if you do that like a milk shake or something. That'd be the worst you can't you can flip around if it's in water. Something fine guests. We can't be defined by our regrets. Taylor what do you say we talk about Him Museum today? How about that? Yes yeah okay so I've been As you as you guys know increasingly what twenty minutes into the episode? And maybe we'll talk about some cars today. I don't know I mean recently being Now in or current incarnation of car stuff. I'm increasing finding myself being a on. The road correspondent yeah awesome. Yeah that's great. I love being able to do this. A love being able to find these amazing museums. These amazing stories. A lot of stuff Scott that you and I have been talking about for years. I love being able to go there in person. Recently I was stranded in Los Angeles due to a series of cartoonish and In retrospect hilarious circumstances and I finally you know I did that thing where I was thinking stuck here. I'm I'm going to be here for a day. That don't have I don't have a ton of stuff planned So I can either just wander. The streets should do often or I could do something productive which I do less often so so I finally did it. I took you up on recommendation from years ago and I went to visit the Peterson Museum. Fantastic and what was your impression the very moment you walk into that museum because it does make an impression immediately. Yeah Oh man it hit me before it hit me before I walked in because I I got a sense of the scale of the building. Like we've all seen the pictures you heard. It didn't really hit me. How large the museum actually is has kind of a funky designed doesn't it? I mean like really rounded. It's not it's not squared off in any way. It's IT'S A. It's a very free form very organic looking building with There's like red. I think red accent behind it. Or that's maybe just lighting that they could change. I don't know I can't remember but it's metal on the outside very striking building design just as you approach the building but then when you go inside once you're in a renovated version which we'll talk about renovation and all that right through here hazard that's part of the The history of the building itself which is a. It's got like a semi historic built in writing in dot in Los Angeles But When you right when you walk in I mean you know you're in for something special here. At the EH Peterson Museum. Yep absolutely and it was a lot to Take in because when I walked in. I thought okay. This'll be speak pretty simple. I just there's probably a point as start at two point zero debt or whatever but the way. The museum is laid out is in terms of rotating exhibits And some permanent collections. They also have a they also have a vault which really sport later. Yeah I know what you and I talked about on the previous episode but this is not fully one of the largest automotive museums in the world. So this is a museum that you could go back to a few months later and reasonably encounter all new vehicles. Isn't that crazy? I mean with the rotation of the vehicles that we'll talk about you know there's there's several that are rotated in and out they. Have you know other exhibitions that go on at the time? So there's there's like this endless supply of variety that they can throw out there. You know that they can. They can mix and match these things together how they would like and put together collections. That either make sense or are very eclectic or you know whatever they want and they also bring in you know Special Exhibitions. That are of course more focused. You know but only lasts for a short amount of time. So if you're fortunate enough to be able to go there you're able to catch those things but They do have a lot of. I guess I'll call them resident vehicles that they can bring in and out that do live in that volt in and that they do throw on the floor but I would bet that you know I went to the Museum. Fort Forty years ago something like that. Yeah and you went just recently but I would bet that you saw very few of the same vehicles that I saw on the floor. Yeah Yeah there was Let's see so. They had the Hollywood dream machines that was one of their big ones. And that was the one. Actually the most mixed feelings about this is this is like the movie cars right. Exactly exactly. So you'll see some batmobiles you'll see some George barris design tonight. I love that topic And then they had Disruptors they had some motorcycle design. That a lot of racing Like groundbreaking racecars is Bruce. Meyers exhibit of these epic Race Cars. Ten of them from nineteen twenty nine to nineteen seventy-nine and it's stunning. We're talking about historically important. Cars like the first production Shelby Cobra from sixty to cool the greer black PRUDHOMME dragster also from sixty to this one. One two hundred and thirty seven of the two hundred and forty one races. It Ran Bo under you know driven by Don prudhomme The snake yeah and they had a Bonneville Racer the twenty nine Ford some forty-seven. I'm sorry. I'm still laughing at the snake nickname. That's a that's a great nickname to greet nick combine. It depends on who you are. Yeah well yeah I guess so but if you drag racer I mean that's a cool navy drag racer did you. Can rationally support being called the snap here in the office. I wouldn't want to be called the snake like like. Oh they're Scott. He's the sneaky snake. Yeah I think it's different when you're when you're nickname inserted between the first and last name as if it were a middle name if you were called snake like yea Nay Garin or snake Bolan. That's a good puzzle different. You know maybe like don the snake per dome. Yeah sure different than snake. Predom- you're right. It is like his parents might have Named him snake bit. But you know you'd always question that you is wonder unless you ask the man himself so I don't WanNa ask snake if it's right up there with what's what's your whole deal. What's your thing about? Chances of. I'm telling you are slim to none. I don't know maybe snakes dude I just. I have a thing with nicknames after.

It's fun there's plenty of power and makes a glorious sound There's that website Petrol Ish Oh yeah yeah they did a nice Video video on it which is kind of fun. So here's a question so this car and many of your other cars that the Ferrari tr etcetera the corvette The old corvette were bill as race. Cars and mu are not racing them. You're you take him out for a nice cruise. You bring them to a show or whatever. How does something like this? Behave Save when you subjected to Streetcar. Conditions well We did for that beforehand. A little a little of both Like on on on the Friday the short wheelbase we put smaller Jetson it. We've kind of narrowed down Ventura's because with those big forty six is on on there it just I mean it's just dumped fuel so so what we did. Is We narrow that down a bit. made it more drivable. So you lose a little power but if you the one hundred ninety our you know can you. Could you actually tell the difference when from driving it or does it just seems runs. Listen I'm an old man I I'm I'm not looking to set any speed record so I just wanted to experience the cars. I don't have to experience him in a full you know walk sideways skit or on Rodeo driver on PCH. Appreciate so either I drive respectfully and I enjoy the cars. Swipe driving to events. We drove all to the Peterson. That photo you have up there That's that's on the way to the Peterson Museum. There's there's five cars they're all CR a Cobra a GTO. Oh and I can't really see beyond Sereni then there's a nine thirty five. Oh Yeah that thing is a corvette thirty five is not like a normal nine thirty five. Either you have a special crazy. Nine thirty five is crazy crazy nuts. The it's a Kramer K.. Three winner of seventy nine twenty four hours a little ma seven hundred horsepower. Good Lord it is a good move all hey. Three cars were bananas right. I mean they were so fast so much power. Within it manual boost controllers one at Rennes Sport. I remember watching the video and he was just turning the KNOB.

That's bad I mean today. That wouldn't happen it. It wouldn't happen no now. Today in overall winner has to be approached. Yeah would you I mean what can you do with this car to enjoy it. Well there's a there's there's a an event called Oh yes air cooled Porsche. And we drove it there Funding Streets Bruce. You can do that. I say bruce rolled up to Radwan in a Fox body.

I misheard I guess it's very active and So I always you know I admire Meyer. The highway patrol so I I bought this car from highway.

I mean do you do you go out and have a go. So in the in the new cars do care. I Am Way more appreciative of the of the vintage cars. Yeah because of the story it just because I you know I don't have to go warp speed I did you like tame things like the nine thirty five something you know I can handle. I mean I am so unqualified for that car. You have no idea that car. Have you had a going. Oh clemson motorcycles. You can't be totally unqualified. Not The worst.

Experienced technology says in Michigan revolution is in the air. Find out what planet is doing to help businesses make that possible at planet m dot com. That's P. L. A. N. E T, M dot com. To solve the scourge of the car. Maybe we have to go back back to the future from American public media. This is marketplace. Tech demystifying the digital economy, I'm Jack Stewart info. Molly would. The future of causes always exciting and always just around the corner. Things like self driving cars have been five years away, for I'd say about forty years now, but there are times when pure imagination is exactly what's needed when vehicles have to be as out there as possible nearly incredible. 'cause or a big part of science fiction TV shows and movies. They're often characters themselves, and someone has to make them I went to see some of the creations of writers directors and designers at a new exhibition at the Petersen automotive museum in Los Angeles. It's called Hollywood dream machines. And there cause from Mad Max Bladerunner and the classic Star Wars amongst others. Brian Stevens is exhibition director at the museum, and he started by explaining how a car designer works with a filmmaker in the use of vehicles in Hollywood productions. There are a number of scenarios, one of, which is the need to design a car from scratch to fulfill the vision of the producers of the directors of the film, in many. Cases though. There are pre existing cars that do just that and there's no need to design a car from scratch, and when it came time to create back to the future just so happened, that this very exotic wild stainless steel bodied car existed. In fact, was very much in the public eye. Do some lawsuits at the time which which made it a perfect option for this particular use in this particular film. Doc. Are you telling me that you built a time machine? The way I see it if you're going to build a time machine into a car, why not do it from style now that we are up close, I can see. There are a lot of wires zip ties parts that look almost unfinished. Yes. Which is deliberate in this case, the producers and directors of the film didn't want something polished, they wanted something that looked like it was handmade in a garage. So you worked with designers of some of these actually put this exhibit together. How important, did they say it is to be accurate as opposed to just be entertaining when the coming up with these visions of the future. I think it's a combination of both if you're projecting fifty years in the future. I think accuracy is, is going to be difficult to achieve, regardless of what you what you propose, but they certainly do want some level of realism when you start getting into science fiction films as opposed to Pierce to pure fantasy films. You do want there to be an element of science basis, you want there to be something that seems even somewhat. Ause -able about what you're predicting. So you have kit here, for example, from Knight rider from what the voice of industry thousands microprocessor K IT for easy reference. A can't. If you prefer, do you think that, that was fully autonomous long before most of us had heard of even the concept of self driving, 'cause it's a 'cause like that an inspiration to real engineers and real designers, I think there's no question that when today's designers were children, watching these television shows in these movies that they are even potentially subconsciously gaining inspiration from what they see. And that's probably part of why we see some of the technologies that are shown in these vehicles. Eventually become real Brian Stevens, taking us on a semi nostalgic semi futuristic, look at the cause of Hollywood at the Petersen automotive museum in Los Angeles, fun facts. I learned from him in the early drafts of the back to the future. Script the time machine wasn't built into a cholera toll. It was built into refrigerator. I'm not sure I would have enjoyed the movie. Quite as much. And now for some related links. Check out the exhibition website if you want some inspiration for movies have been Joan this holiday. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed some of them the Audi r s q concept from I robot made me want to watch that all over again. And I will be streaming the original Bladerunner as well as twenty four thousand nine to see that vision of Los Angeles with spinners in the dark and rainy skies in terms of making these sci-fi visions come true. The Atlantic has a great story with the headline flying cause a real and then not bad for the climate that describes the efforts to build a new type of electric flying machine that isn't a plane and isn't a helicopter but could fly building to building top skipping city traffic.
