Episode #26: The Mopar Hunter's Top 5 Of The Week
"Welcome to episode number. Twenty six of Mo- parts. This week show is going to be a little bit different because I'm not going to have a project car of the week but I'm GONNA take five cars from this past week's postings on the moped hundred facebook page and we're gonNA analyze those five. Ats and you know. Maybe we'll pick a card. That would be the best deal who knows. We're declined by the seat of our pants here. Okay we also have to listener stories and what we're GONNA do is we're gonNA throw high-performance parts in between those stories so let's Switch things up a little bit. Let's just fly by the seat of our pants today. I think it'll be fun. I already have the ad set aside and burn. Have a good time as usual so without further ado if you are a moped enthusiasts then you are in the right place. Don't go anywhere. You're tuned into the best moped enthusiast. Driven podcast on planet Earth. And I'm your host Chris. Albrecht better known as the Mo- par hunter and this is talking Mo- Parse and you're listening to talking more parts with the Hunter Your Direct Medicine Wall Things. Mo- part what Mope aren't suzy. We are back again for another fun filled episode of talking Mo- Pars and I've got some good news my project. Art is finally getting an engine. Unfortunately it's not the fifty one that I had hoped for because that engine is still at the machine shop dead in the water for monetary reasons. But I'm so anxious to get behind the wheel of this dart that I've actually decided to hold off on the big box walk for now. I have most of the small block parts. Still with the exception of the engine and transmission. So I actually had a buddy reach out to me about the seventy one charger. I was looking at saying that he had a three eighteen and nine hundred four that he was just looking to give away so he generously donated that engine and transmission to the new cars. And the new. 'cause IS TO DART on the road before I go out acquiring any other projects I gotta get the ones. I have on the road with that being said. I've got a project right now with this little three eighteen and I'm just trying to dress it up a little bit and give it a little bit more go crazy. I just want to make it a little bit fun okay. The engine project that I have now is called project free eighteen because it is a three eighteen and free. So that's what I'm up to. I'm just gathering parts trying to find good deals and it's funny because I posted this cheesy ad was a wanted poster. Ernest said basically wanted small block. Par- parts you know. Cheap is good and free great and there was one guy who's like. Oh better. Get a small block Chevy. Nothing in the Mo- par world is cheap. But here's the thing he's wrong because I've gotten plenty of cool stuff for free or next to free or really cheap. Just based on the fact that I'm a nice guy and I guess I've been fortunate that I've ran into such cool people in the mobile world and unfortunately for that guy. Apparently he's run into a bunch of jerks that are just out for money which you know there are a lot of people like that and the Mo- park immunity unfortunately but you know thankfully I haven't run into any of them. I've ran into some really cool people and they've given me some really good deals so I'm not complaining on that front and I'm still getting the deals I just acquired an intake and a carb and I've got some really cool vintage valve covers and I'm just having fun with this car now. I've got everything I need to throw together and have a ratty little small blocked art and that's all I want. The shiniest parts on the start are going to be the wheels and tires because I have brand new bef. Gta's and Krieger SS for it. So you know it is what it is. I'm GonNa have fun with it and hopefully you guys will be along for the ride. I'm going to try to get some of that content up on Youtube here sooner rather than later so you guys can follow along on a little bit more of a visual level. So that's what I'm up to now. Let's get this show on the road. Like I said in the introduction folks we've got to listeners stories and I'm GonNa Sandwich our segment called high performance parts in between both stories justice which things so our first listener story comes from Shane. Taylor here. Is Shane Story? Hey Chris my dad has always had cool cars and trucks for much of my life. He's made a living off of hunting down deals and then flipping them. I'm now in my late twenties own a house and financially stable as a congratulations or as my dad says early inheritance. He said I could have any one of my choosing. I had the choice between fully restored. Nineteen seventy-nine Camaro RS s with a pretty radical three eighty three stroke or a fully restored Purple Nineteen fifty-six Plymouth Savoie or a dusty old red and black nineteen fifty five Plymouth Belvedere that didn't run and was missing the rear window which is apparently traded for a brick that sat in the backseat. I took the fifty six savoie because it was in the best condition and would need the least amount of work. It was perfect. Because I don't know a ton about working on cars but I love detailing although this is probably the most valuable car. It had a few drawbacks. The car was restored in the nineties and was overdue for another restoration in the near future. The interior was badly stain and fading. The paint was getting rest bubbles and there was a lot of custom work done that was very obviously trendy a couple decades ago but not anymore the worst part though it had a three fifty small block. Chevy. Don't get me wrong. My family was GM all the way. Unless there was a MO- part deal to be found. My Dad even warned me that when I took it I couldn't hang out with the Mo guys or else I'd be chastised. He said apart by the fifties chevrolets at shows and don't talk about the car more than need be after all. The car had no signs of make other than the aluminum. Plymouth play under the door when open so most people thought it was a chop fifty seven Chevy. Once I got it I started doing research on the forward. Look Mo- parts and I fell in love the more I looked at him. The more disappointed became with fifty six mash up with Chevy engine. Ford Rerun Nineteen Ninety. Eight Ford Escort Royal Plum. Paint which looked great. But I just can't stand forwards and Tacky customisations. I found myself eyeing the faded beaten up Belvedere that my dad had sitting in a shop. It had one around the title and had gone to his surviving kin. It was easily ninety percent original so I started drooling after I to educate myself on these classics after a week of having the Purple Plymouth. I called Dad and told him I made a mistake. I detailed the Savoie and send it back to him. Any happily gave me the bus at fifty five after all he had been offered up to ten thousand four and only paid fourteen hundred for the non running Belvedere. Although it wasn't a smart financial decision was the right thing to do and I couldn't be happier. We really to a local shop that specializes in classic. Mo- parts have the clutch rebuilt as well as some brake work done. Once I got a new six volt battery hooked up. It started and ran great. Save for some smoke. Every light on the car worked perfectly and the more I looked around through the scattered parts in the interior and trump the more original parts. I found for it now. There runs in drives learning and working on finding parts for these is a very expensive scavenger hunt. But it's fun to work on such a neat piece of history even though I live two hours from my dad. It's brought us closer together because I'm always sending in pictures of things. I've probably messed up and calling him for help. I look forward to restoring beauty overtime. The Right Way and going to car shows with him even if we can't park next to each other Shane. Thanks for sending in your story I've been wanting to do some forward look content and your story kind of inspired me to get Looking into what I want to cover an hi Wanna go about doing it. I actually have a guest lined up. That is pretty deep in the forward look community. But I haven't really scheduled him in yet so I gotta get a hold of him and figure out when we can get him on the show. Because like I said and like I've been saying this show is for all aren't disease that includes a forward look the modern era everything in between and I'm GONNA stick to my word. We will cover the antique stuff like the really really old stuff. We're going to cover the forward. Look we're going to cover it all or at least we're gonNA give it our best shot so look forward to that very cool story. I'm glad that you chose at least a MO- par over the Chevy. That makes you a lot cooler in my book and let me just say this. A car enthusiasts first and foremost but I am a Mo- par guy so I respect all cool cars but there's just something about Mo- parts that gets me going so when I take shots at Ford and Chevy guys you know nothing personal. It's all in good fun. Okay now back to Shane Story. It's good to hear that you're getting into Mo- pars and cars in general it's something fun to learn and you sound like you're really motivated to gear project on so that's really cool in. Hey a fifty. Five Belvedere is pretty cool in my book. So keep me posted on your project. Buddy thanks for sending in your story I really WanNa see pictures of this car and see how far you belong. Maybe you can call in and give me some tips to pass along the people because I get people asking me about forward look cars and where to find parts and all this and a lot of stuff you know. I try my best but I don't own a forward look cars. I'm not too deep in that world and I know there's people out there that own those cars and start finding really good resources and stuff so anybody out there actually not just. Shane knows any good places to go forward. Look stuff let me know if you know someone. That's really deep in the forward. Look each that's one aspect of mope our history that I admittedly don't know very much about but I love those cars. I think are really cool and I'll take. I'll take anything in the forward look era over fifty seven Chevy any day but that's me and that's not to say the fifty seven chevies aren't cool but hey forward look parts or cooler. Proven wrong Shane once again. Thank you for sending in your story. All right folks like I told you earlier in the show. We are switching. Things up. Were thrown high-performance parts in the middle of the two listeners stories. So this week's high performance part is interesting to say the least. It's actually a cartoon now. I don't know how familiar you guys are with. King of the hill but one of the main characters boom hauer a good friend and neighbor of Hank Hill is apparently a Mo- park guy because his red muscle car has what looks to be a six pack hood. The front end looks to be a sixty nine coronet or super B. and the rear end. Now here's where things get. Weird is actually more reminiscent of a sixty eight now. Are there any badging anything? No but it does have the Bumblebee Stripe. So I'M GONNA go ahead and assume oh par right away now. I don't know if the creator of the show who also side note created Beavis and butthead is a moped guy or if that's just coincidence maybe he looked. Maybe he googled muscle car and saw. You know a couple of Mo- pars on there because you know that they'd be at the top of the list Maybe he just you know reference points. And that's why there's a mash up of a sixty eight sixty nine coronet or super superbeet. So you know that's that that's the high performance part for this week. Boom Howard hybrid sixty eight sixty nine coronet or super be that was high performance parts now back to listener. Stories are second. Listener story was sent in by Mark. Here is marked story. Hey Chris just started listening to the podcast about two weeks ago and have to say. It's one of my favorite car. Podcasts OUT THERE. I've been hearing a few stories about the Mo- Parts got away so I thought I would tell you about how I was the one on the opposite end doing the getaway. This is the story of how I bought my first. Mo Par two thousand six Dodge Charger Daytona and started my love of Mope while also giving my Chevy Dad a literal heart attack. It was two years ago late summer and I was on the hunt for a new car. Might cheap junkie beater of Saturn. Sc One was on. Its last legs so on my hunt. I came across an ad online about a two thousand six yellow charter for sale at a dealership. It had no photos no description in no price so I dismissed it well. A week went by my dad. Who also looking for me. Jokingly pointed out a yellow charger at being a Chevy Guy I didn't read much about it and joked about the color to be honest. Wasn't super interested in a bright yellow car but I went over and took a look. It was the same ad I had looked at a week ago but they had added description to it grabbed my attention with one word Daytona. I demanded that we take a look at it. So that's Sunday. The next day we drove out to look I film love at first sight. It was a top and yellow dodge charger with the black decals across the hood and Rear Fender. The blacks boiler and the five point seven. Hemi it looked just like all the sales pictures. I wanted that car so late that week. Me and my parents went to buy it. We arrived at the dealership and my concern was pulled in front of the dealership doors. I was worried it was sold so we went into check. Sure enough. The deal told is a very interested buyer was coming to look at it the next day and he was almost sure of the sale disappointed. We started to leave but the manager stopped us just as we are about to leave and said I could test drive since the other person didn't put any money down well short test drive later only made me want it more not wanting to miss my chance on this car. I immediately put an offer of nine thousand five hundred for the car. Which much to my salesman's disapproval. The manager accepted after financing it myself. I drove off in my new Daytona. I felt a little bad about buying it out from under another buyer but the burn out leaving the dealership made me forgive fairly quickly while about two months after buying. The car of my father had a heart attack. Thankfully he's okay but my family and I am sure that the Chrysler sitting in my Chevy Dad's garage is what almost did him in. He started to come around. Mo- part since then and has started to like the car. My daytonas still my baby and I drive it constantly in store during the harsh winter of Wisconsin. She has some rest starting in the rear corner panels but other than that she saw it. I hope to get that sorted out soon anyways. Thanks for listening to my story mark. Hey mark thanks for sending in your story lack. I've said in the past. This show does not discriminate when it comes to Mow Panthers. East's not only do I enjoy the classic parts but I also enjoyed the modern ones. I thought it was entertaining to hear you. Tell the story from the other side of the coin where you weren't the one who lost out on a car. You are actually the one who contributed to somebody else's loss which you know you didn't hurt my feelings but guys that's what happens when you don't put money down on a car. What do you expect the dealership to hold forum? They're running a business and we're GONNA hold a car for you so I don't feel bad for the guy that lost out on that car. I feel great for you mark. It's awesome that you have a modern part or call your own and now you are officially A. Mo- part Doozy Est. Listen guys I want to hear more. Modern Mo- par story so of you or anyone you know has a good one to me. You can email me Chris at talking. Mo- parts dot com or you can leave me a voice message at two zero nine. Twenty eight mo par either way. Your story will get shared on the show in. It'll be fun for everybody to enjoy so please if you have a story and you've been doubting whether or not you should tell it. I'm here to tell you right. Now Tell your story okay. Share your story with us so that does it for listener stories today. Let's shift gears here and talk about the current moped marketplace and the types of vehicles that. You may find any anyone that knows me knows. I'm a fan of vintage car. Magazine specifically hot Rod and one of my favorite sections in that magazine is Hot Rod Mart and every time I opened up one of those old magazines. That's one of the first things I do next to looking at all the old cool car ads. I go right to hot Rod. Martin I look at the prices of the cars that we all know and love that were crazy amounts of money back in the day and by crazy amounts of money. I mean they aren't cheap by today's standards so when I'm on craigslist looking for adds to post on the moped hundred facebook page I see everything from cheap you know. Non Titled Rob Boxes. All the way up to expensive rob boxes and then you know everything in between and everything up above I see some really high dollar six figure. Mo- pars some of them are worth the six figures and some others are just reaching for those extra Zeros and you know I thought this week would be fun instead of just doing a project of the week. I thought it would be fun to kind of look at the past week and see you know. Pick out a random number of cars. I chose five. And they're priced anywhere from the low teens to the mid to high fifties and I thought it would be interesting to kind of compare them because there is. There's a big gap from say. Ten thousand to sixty thousand dollars. You see cars that are under ten thousand that are they are what they are. Chances of finding yourself driving safe to drive mo par for under ten thousand. You know if you find one by it okay if you have the money by that thing because it really hard to come by now at least where I'm at I look at a ton of these ads and you know I've come to the conclusion that if you really want a decent moped driver car. You're looking at around twenty grand. That is not to say that all of them around that price is seen some decent runners and drivers for around ten. I've seen some rob box chargers. You know second generation chargers sixty eight seventy for twenty five thousand complete rob boxes. You know what I mean. They need one hundred thousand dollars worth of work and parts and they're just so far gone that it's like look you gotta come down on that price. Twenty five thousand for three eighteen. You Know X. P. Charger isn't worth it. You know in the long run. That's just you know. And I'm kind of contradicting myself here. Because I've said and argued the point on some of these that are more sought after that. Hey you buy a seventy. Rt Challenger needs a lot of work for thirty five grand. And then maybe in twenty years after you've sunk fifty grand into it or whatever it needs you put eighty thousand dollars total investment. Maybe you have one hundred thousand dollar car. You know if you take into account inflation but I mean those are just crazy numbers on thrown out there but you definitely have to take inflation into the equation. I do believe that some of these cars are good investments and although they seem like a high entry point maybe in the long run in twenty twenty five years. It'll all pay off. I think for those that grew up in the time period of the muscle cars and for students of color like myself. We see these vintage car dealer ads for prices of these cars when they were brand new. And it's crazy and then you look at some of these cars today and you see the ones that are investment quality and deserve the prices that they're asking for but then you see these other cars that you know. Have Been Rotting in backyards. In Barnes and in Garages as failed projects and these people are asking crazy amounts of money for these cars thinking that they're worth that just because you know it's a dodge challenger or Plymouth Barracuda or a dodge charger. They attached the name to a value. Even though the vehicle itself isn't really worth that much money in the current state of its condition. I think that we all have to look at these cars in a different light. I think we really have to look at him as exactly what they are. You know if you have a piece of junk rotting in your backyard. It's probably not worth much money. You have to stop attaching value to the nameplates on these cars. Just because you have a challenge doesn't mean it's automatically worth a bunch of money just because you have a charger doesn't mean it's automatically worth a bunch of money because there has to be of value to the car you know long-term if it's going to be considered investment car. I'm all about paying crazy amounts of money for cars that are going to be worth the investment but some cars are just not worth the investment so these sellers new at least come down in the price but you know what I just looked at the clock and I've realized that I better get off of my soapbox here and get into what you guys are here for. And that's the five cars that were chosen so here are my top five picks from last week postings on the mope one hundred facebook page the first car chosen was in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine cornet five hundred convertible posted on. Friday may first at twelve pm now. Normally what I do on project the week is I read you the whole ad. But we've got these cars to get through so I'm kind of just going to go over the bullet points of each car and then kind of explain what I think about it okay. So it's a sixty nine coronet. Five hundred convertible. The title status is listed as clean. It's got a numbers matching three eighty three four barrel automatic allegedly one of one hundred and seventy eight seller says it starts runs Dr Steers in stops and apparently the vehicle order number has some sort of significance and supposedly allegedly. This car is a factory. Press Review Show car because the first three digits on the vehicle order number are nine six zero now. I don't know how factual that is. My preliminary research didn't give me the answers I needed. So that's up to you to do the due diligence if you were to go look at this car. It looks like the seller has service the car quite a bit and has driven it around to try to work some of the kinks out. Sounds like it's still has some issues that need to be worked out but all the fluids have been serviced. It looks like he's address some of the wiring and the charging system looks like he's went through the exhaust and the cooling system also the brakes. He's gone through the brakes and suspension. He's got factory cruise control on it and the unit is complete. The carb linkages missing. It's got a factory. Am FM radio. That works front power windows work and the rear are a bit fickle. He says it's got power convertible top that works nicely but the top is in poor condition. Apparently has a new top to go with the car. He's got all the factory air conditioning components but they are not hooked up ease verified that it is a numbers matching engine transmission. Angkor support. The body does have a lot of rust. Apparently the front fenders need patch repairs. It needs quarters needs floors and needs trunk Pan and extensions possibly even rear rails and it definitely needs a fuel tank. He says that he believes the doors. Declan Hood are solid. The torque boxes appear solid as well also the torsion bar area and the front frame rails appear solid. It was repainted sometime in the eighties. After somebody back into the passenger side the door was replaced. An Nos quarter was installed resprayed original art for Red. He's got new carpet side. Glass is complete in the windshield has a crack. He's put about twenty miles on it since he did. Some of the. He's put about twenty miles on it since he did some of the servicing on it just trying to work the kinks out but it still needs some front end adjustments. He says to plan on trailing at home. If you were to buy the car he also says you can drive it as is or tear down for a restoration. Utilizing nearly all of the parts that he's replaced. He's selling the car to get a charger. He's asking for thirteen thousand dollars or reasonable offer after you come and look at the car. He's also accepting trades for other B body cars. The car actually does not look bad at all. If you're looking for a convertible and you don't want to spend a bunch of money this may be the car for you. Yeah it needs a little rest repair but my first impression of the car is hey that would make a great ratty convertible and you really don't see too many ratty convertibles on the road and for thirteen thousand. This would make a great Radhi convertible at not too crazy over price so I would suggest doing a little research on that nine sixty vehicle order number to see if that actually is a factory press review show car. I'm going to go do some more research on that just because now I'm curious. But one of one hundred seventy eight you know when people throw those numbers out. It's best to do the research or just pretend like those numbers don't mean anything and as a buyer you should never make a big deal about those numbers overall. I think the coronets cool starts runs dry steers and stops in convertible for under twenty grand. Hey where can you go wrong? It's a be body too that's neat. It's a pretty decent car so I would say that this one is a good buy for somebody looking for what it is. A ratty convertible that runs dry stairs and stops up next. We have a nineteen seventy-three dodge charger. And I. I said I was just going to give you bullet points on these ads but some of these ads are really short and concise and this chargers. One of them so. Let's go ahead and read the ad for this charger instead. It has given you bullet points. This charter was posted April twenty eighth. Which was a Tuesday at three PM? Nineteen seventy-three charger. Fourteen thousand Chappaqua odometer listed to have seventy five thousand miles. Nineteen seventy-three Dodge Charger. Three eighteen mint condition clean title. Fourteen thousand cash. And that's all we have and my summary for the car is going to be about as short as the AD. It's a clean cards white on white. It's got slots on it with the the fads in the back with the deep dish. It's got a little bit of a flare on the back like the aftermarket eighty stream machine style flair in front of the rear wheel. It's got a nice little wing little graphic down the rear quarter. It's got a front lip spoiler and the looks really solid in clean. They didn't give us much to work off here but the car is fourteen thousand cash. Now it's a small block car but hey this thing is clean and if the pictures do the car justice and the inside is as clean as what the outside appears to be. This could be a really clean driver quality car and you don't even have to do anything to the engine. You can just leave the little three eighteen in it and cruised around. And I'm not even sure if I mention it or not. But the car has a knockoff. Of What The duster had which was the V. Twenty four option. The performance hood pain in the three forty engine call out. I actually think that the car would look a lot cleaner without all that mess. But you know that's just my opinion you know overall. I like what I'm seeing and the price is right. Fourteen thousand get in it and go. That sounds like a deal to me and this thing is a cool street machine so I would definitely say that this is worth the money and if the sellers being straight up and it is in mint condition than for fourteen thousand. This ain't a bad car you know. I've seen a lot of rob boxes for fourteen thousand that you need you know thousands of dollars to put into him to even get close to the road in this things ready to go for fourteen thousand. I say it's a good deal so moving on. Let's get into the next car which actually takes us out of the teens and puts us into the high twenties. This next car was posted. April twenty seventh which was Monday at nine a. One PM nineteen seventy challenger Ta three forty six pack four speed twenty nine thousand dollars selling my nineteen seventy ta challenger this is not an original ta but with original Panther Pink ta selling for over one hundred thousand. You won't be afraid to drive this one. This car runs out strong with the correct hood exhaust spoilers in rallies with the six pack set up in the Hurst Pistol Grip four-speed. It is fun to drive. This car is not show quality but well worth the price of twenty nine thousand firm. This means I will not take twenty eight thousand nine hundred and ninety nine dollars or anything less. No I do not care that you're looking at one twice as nice for half the money if that is the case then you need to go buy that one because it does not exist. I simply do not have the time to enjoy it so after having owned it for the last several years it is time to let it go. I did not put this car together. Do not know the history since new scammers. Waste your time if you want but I will not take your bugs cashier's check and send you the difference so don't bother if you're reading this Ad. The car is still available. I will consider trading up and down for who knows what no motorcycles boats or junk clean Florida title in my name in hand okay. I really liked this car. And I've said it before I will drive with no shame on. Fm Three Panther Pink Dodge or a Moulin Rouge Plymouth. But this car is really nice. It's got the four speed pistol grip. Scott the three forty six pack it's basically a Ta the TA fender tag. It's a really nice tribute car and for twenty nine thousand. You know the pictures must do this car a lot of justice because he saying it's an art show quality and it looks really clean to me but if this was mine. I would take out the aftermarket. Cd player he's got. I'd turn that back to factor at throw. Some Rallye Gauges and find a nice rim blow steering wheel and call it a day. This thing looks like a great cruiser under thirty thousand which I think is a pretty good deal. I'd like to see closer to twenty five but you know I'm cheap twenty nine thousand for a challenger. Ta Tribute Car seems to be a pretty decent deal for me. It's one of those cars where you don't have to worry about it because it's not a seventy or eighty thousand or one hundred thousand dollar car and you can actually get out there and enjoy it and drive it without feeling like you know somebody hits me. I'm completely screwed. You know what I mean but it looks like a great cruiser car and for under thirty grand that's less than a price of new challenger unless you're looking at a Base Model V. Six. This is one of those cars where you know compared to the Challenger that we just talked about which was fourteen thousand so this car is fifteen thousand dollars more. Is it worth that to me? Yes you get a lot of car for fifteen thousand more. But that's just my opinion. Go check this one out to. It's really cool. I think it's worth twenty nine thousand. I'd like to pay twenty-five Hack. I'd like to pay fifteen thousand but you know we'd settle at twenty nine. I think that's a pretty good by you. GotTa be really comfortable in your own skin Dr Pinkus and be a man and hey I would have no shame in my game rockin this pistol grip in FM Three Panther Pink challenger Ta even if it was attributed car moving onto the next car. We have a nineteen seventy dodge super. Bee this thing was posted. Friday may first at nine a. m. This is a cool one. Nineteen Seventy Dodge superbeets. Forty two thousand nine hundred and fifty dollars in. Longmont numbers matching nineteen seventy dodge super B. C. Stripe in go mango orange exterior and black interior. This original three eighty-three Magnum four-speed motor has been upgraded with a high performance aluminum intake and carburetor the original intake carburetor air cleaner included with the vehicle. It comes equipped with a pistol grip. Shifter Tick Tock TAC and air GRABBER HOOD. It was painted in nineteen eighty nine original color base coach slash. Clear coat runs beautifully. Serious buyers only please. Odometer is listed at ninety thousand. Three hundred sixty five miles in the title status is listed as clean he lists the Vin number which tells us that it is indeed a super B. and that it is a three eighty three car this car basically fourteen thousand more than the Challenger we just talked about and this one is numbers matching in a high impact color with a pistol grip. Four-speed Tick Tock tack this thing. Has It all including the Ram Charger Hood which the seller does list as Air Grabber? But we know that's slightly inaccurate because this is a dodge and dodgers had ram chargers and Plymouth had the air grabber. But we're just being MO- PICKY FOLKS. The car is sitting on some keystone wheels and it just looks good. It's got the little wing. Scott the Ram Charger Hood like we talked about four speed car. Tick Tock Man. This is a really cool car. I am glad that he's including the original intake. Carburetor air cleaner with it Because it does have some aftermarket parts under the hood but the car is just. It's a really nice car for forty basic Let's call it. Forty three thousand. That's less than a new challengers CAPAC and to be honest. I'd rather be driving one of these than a new challenge. Not because I don't like the new challenges but because you're far more likely to see one of those at a stop light. Then you are a nineteen seventy dodge superbeing Gomungo. Okay but this car is a good goodbye and anyone with that kind of wallet. Needs to pick up a car like this because hey it's one of those ones that you can get in Dr. Have Fun you know. It may not be perfect. This car was painted in one thousand nine hundred nine. I highly doubt the pain is perfect. But you know what go get cutting buffed and drive the heck out of it even enter into some car shows and have some fun and maybe change some things as you go the little stuff to bring this car even closer to perfection. You know I may never be perfect but you can slowly bring it there you know. Get a part here apart. There things like that to just bring the cars level up a little bit but forty three grand. Gets you a seventy superbeet? That's absolutely beautiful. I don't think you can argue with that and finally we have the last car of the five now. This one really wasn't a comparison for price or anything like that or condition. This thing was just downright cool. And what is it in one thousand nine hundred seventy two? Hemi Khuda built allegedly by socks and Martin. This car was posted on. Friday may first and nine thirty PM. Nineteen seventy-two socks. Martin Hemi Khuda fifty six thousand dollars.

That's insane and it's basically you can call it a low ten second car and just has that nostalgic vibe and the car actually is let it up and it looks like it was part of the drag race team midnight productions. You know. I don't know anything about them. But it's a cool car. It looks to be on Craig's. Ss The super tricks. And those are some of my favorite wheels of all time next to the CRABGRASS S.

Well, because we wanted to have somebody say I liked it when you guys saying that saw he should sing all the intro music and ultra music, and I'm like that's a lot of word win. Way too, much work.

And then there are two girls started singing to. Hello. Oh, yeah. Along with us because of the whole trolls, that's a show that that was hilarious.

How was your time spent away? Busy. It's always busy. Not quite as busy as you. But I mean on the scale of busy. It was. Yeah. Yeah. That's good. Keep busy. It is good. I like being busy again. This whole baseball situation is going to continue to keep me busy until like mid June. But Jerry is pledging here now, he's not gonna miss a weakest snarf talk. Oh, no. No. No, no. That will not be missed. I we've talked about it earlier. We talked about it another day. And I just don't feel like it's fair for us to skip a week melt we now it's okay for us to skip a week gift. We plan ahead and record multiple episodes in a week. Yeah. But in episode is going to be put up every single week because I want to shoot for like fifty two in a row. Yeah. I mean like one year in a row of constant content, constant content. You know, I I I have a fan. The fans deserve it. I'm gonna tease a little thing. I'm gonna work on. I haven't started working on it yet. But we have a previously on aired Yod cast. We do our like our first, she's you should've told me I could have brought that our first podcast really that we recorded, and we never released successfully is the origin story it really origin story. It is the original origin story of our first one that we went on the air live with we were gonna talk about all that stuff. And we never really did. And we kind of skipped it because we just talked about it at length that laying like we talked for our special guest. Yep. There was a special. He has not been on a an aired episode of snarf talk yet. If you guys want to hear that unreleased origin story of snarf. Yeah. Leave leave us account. Let us know something give us out some sort of outreach. It's going to take some significant editing on my part. It is a drinker. Two was shared, man. That's a rough. It turns into a rough one the beginning of the first the first hour to our. Yeah. Over half of it is good. The last little section there. I don't I don't remember it. Well, we haven't listened to Mexico. So I mailed I mailed those stickers to Erica. And I have not heard from her if she's received the stickers yet. And it's concerning me because they've been mailed for a while. And I've never, you know, haven't got a message from her yet. So either she was thoroughly disappointed in the stickers or they are law. That's possible. Our mazing if we got tons tons tons more stickers, and we're going to be more liberal with our sticking we did in their updated their little bit different design. Chris put a picture of on the the in social is. Yeah. At snarf comics. Yup. We'll get some traction on social media for up to one hundred and fifty dollars. What one hundred fifty there's some people that I see on Instagram that have like twenty three thousand. Followers. It's like it's like what I look at their page. And it's just like it just says like world traveler, and which means I don't do anything whatsoever. Well in any case, we're getting there, and we're going to. Here's the big news. We're going on Friday will be at sea to two in Chicago. Yup. The Chicago comics and entertainment expo times two times. I don't know why I see to Chicago comics CC. No, I get that. I just was like the just figured I'd add an extra two sold. The big plan. Was we were going to be there Friday and Saturday we're going around it out like spend the whole weekend there. Yeah. Last minute fate threw some last minute world. Wind changes at me. So I'm not going to be able to make it on Saturday. Jerry's probably not gonna make it on Saturday. No. I'm not going to go by myself. And I it it doesn't matter. If we go Friday. That's good enough for me. So we'll be there. We're be weighing snarf talk shirts. Oh, you'll know talk handing out snarf, talk stickers. Jerry will be prowling in front of the bathroom. Again. I think prowling is a good word. That's a good word for for me. It's gonna walk around outside about midges slapstick on people as Jiri the prowler. Yeah. That's what I'm gonna call myself name for you. So I think it's a good one. We could write a comic about that. We could. So we've got the first family comic that has to come out of Verona. Yup. The Perot Jerry, the prowler the Snyder on one the Snyder on one what else could we do about me? Tons. We got like maybe finish one that we're doing now though, it's a good idea. Jetpack Sam remember the Plymouth prowler. Yes. Number that car that was such a cool car back in the day. Was it? I thought of who'll I thought it was cool. I think it was a design misstep the Plymouth prowler, I wouldn't call it a misstep. It's really ugly. I don't think it was that ugly. Look up a picture of a Plymouth prowler looks like and I don't think it looked that ugly. I thought it was cool with the open wheel design. That's stupid thing on the front, but it makes for such a good Hot Wheels car. They always rolled the best. I guess I don't know. I think there were roundly hated and criticized probably, but I was a kid when they came out. And I thought they were. Cool. Yeah. Well, you were dumb kids or just a stupid child. It's roundly takes how much that you were a dumb giant. The cost the buy a used Plymouth prowler these days about fourteen hundred. Fourteen hundred bucks. I bet you you could get one for less than six grand Plymouth prowler for sale. Let's buy one or let's say ten grand. You could get a very decent. Low mileage Plymouth prowler with it has to be purple. Well, I mean, here's one for twenty four thousand. Here's a nineteen ninety nine for twenty nine thousand four hundred ninety dollars an EBay. That's stupid. I think that's a good lofty goal. Comics. I feel like that has to be this. Mobile. Have you there two seaters? So if you see me during driving around in a Plymouth, purple Plymouth prowler convertible, flames we've made it has to have flames on wwltv made it then that's our superior. Oh, car kind of you know, like our greenhorn. What's the green hornet car? That's like a lack beauty or. Yeah. Isn't it a is? It's a convertible to it's an old school. Like, we saw it at a Comecon once I think they had it did. Yeah. It was not a convertible though. I thought they were now nineteen fifties cruiser type car black beauty. I mean, I don't know what kind of car. It was. I don't know enough about green hornet. I don't I should know more. It's just not my type of I don't think he's my type it is. No, it is kind of Norwich though, isn't it? I mean, I don't I really don't know enough about it. Nobody wears a suit to Seth Rogan movie. But I don't remember at all. I'd never watched. It never sought some comic book fan. You are. I mean, we're both literally saying how much we don't know about this. And then you're going to claim I know. Six chrysler. Okay. Awesome. Which is Chrysler Plymouth. Same company. They are the same company. We're we're I don't know one of them doesn't exist. It does not exist anymore in any case. We're going to be at sea to we're going to be wearing shirts. We're going to be passed out snarf, talk stickers. We're going to be looking for artists. And I'm gonna prow we're going to be Jerry gonna be prowl an artist alley. I have. Oh, there are some people. I do want to see though, there's colon Cullen bunn's going to be there at a table. Jason Aaron's going to be there at a table. And Kyle Higgins is going to be there to take it. Remind me the other two, you don't know. Jason Aaron remind me while I'd have to look up the books. But I I know I have a bunch of his books. He did Thor. Right. Yeah. He's done four Star Wars. I didn't know he did story. Okay. He's done about bond. Just yet. Kyle Higgins did ghostwriter stuff night wing. He's best known for Thor scalped ghost rider, wolverine punisher. Max there you go. Cool cool done. Some indie stuff though, that is that I like a lot. I can't remember it. I'll have to look it up. But Kyle Higgins house on a couple of podcasts. I want to get this. Listen his cousin Gustaf has furred wrote the book, which became the movie full metal jacket Jason earns his cousin Gustaf half hazard. He wrote in his semi-autobiographical novel the short timers on which the feature film full metal jacket was based was largely an influence on Aaron while. I mean, bam. How can you go wrong with that interesting? It's a small world it is. It's like Jason Al Aaron Gustaf has for it full metal jacket. Jerry Snyder, Chris Harford snarf, comics, you see it all the brick. Yeah. All right. It's all together. This is like a Stanley Kubrick thing, we're doing, you know, kind of like, I feel Kubrick, right? Now, what's your favorite Stanley Kubrick movie full metal jacket by far? That's is that a is that a Stanley Kubrick movie? Yes, of course, it is. I don't think it. It is one hundred percent directed written and co written and produced by Stanley Kubrick. Outta random loan. You know, what sometimes I do do that though? I think my favorite Stanley Kubrick movie. I see that's that's a good one. I don't know. Didn't he do a clockwork orange? He did. I like that moves a really good. It's not as good as full metal jacket. Did he do? It's different though. It's hard to. Oh. That's very different. Yeah. You can't do paths of glory, right? Yep. That's a great one. Shoot. I know there's another one kiss. That's a good one. They're like an alien movie that he did twenty two thousand one space odyssey. Was that him or was that it was him? That was him. Yeah. Because I was thinking Steven Spielberg with Steven Spielberg did nineteen thousand four well that and something encounter. Yes. Close encounters of a third kind. That's what I was thinking of. I think my favorite is Dr Strangelove. You know that I have never seen that. Yeah. I think he's like, I don't know if he's a producer on that. I don't know exactly his entire role in that a lot of people like that movie though. I love that movie. But I've never seen it any do. I need to check it out. You should it's great Peter Sellars come on. You can't go wrong with a good Pete sellers. Yeah. Wasn't he the Pink Panther? Anyway. I do want to see those people along with Kyle Higgins Kyle Higgins, I've listened to a lot of podcasts. He did. Awesome work on Batman stuff. He's doing a Power Rangers run right now that apparently is being like really loved not interested. No, neither my, but I'm interested in harassing these people to be on our podcast and interviewing them, and we're going to give them cards, and we're going to be like, hey, let's literally schedule a date right now. I haven't got cards yet. They're supposed to be here today. I wonder if they're at home. Well, they have to be here by Friday morning or otherwise this is over Chris otherwise for back in the printed guard. Yeah. I will hand those out you think they're ridiculous. I'm going to burn every last one. So yeah. I I want to see those people Cullen Bunn is really cool. Yeah. That guy's amazing. And I'm a backer on his Kickstarter for metro metro. And he co wrote with Brian. I'm blanking now as rela no from tell them, Steve Dave oh Franklin Quinn. Be BQ BQ should I wear my spot. Smart casters -i or my telephone Steve, Dave jersey. Who were wearing snarf stuff? Oh, yeah. So so neither none of those. Jersey underneath of your snarf talk shirt. Okay. But okay, you would look absolutely ridiculous. But you could do that. Yeah. I'll allow it in any case C two we too. It's happening will be there. It's going to be great with cells on. So I got a bunch of news. I got some news. You wanna do the news at Stu some news? Okay. I'm going to start off with one. That's quick. I talk about this. I feel like too much. I need to quit bringing it up. But I did feel like this was newsworthy. If it's about Bill Maher. I'm not getting into. No, it's about suicide squad again. Okay. And they came out and said that this suicide squad movie is a total reboot. Oh, the one with issue Selbe. Yeah. It's not a sequel. It has nothing to do with the past the other one it is a complete and total reboot. Here's a question. Why don't they just do that four issue dead shot miniseries from the nineties that was like cell good? Yeah. Everybody loves and not do. Suicide squad. I don't know why they are doing this. Or why don't they make suicide squad into a TV show? I think they could put it on their DC streaming app. Yeah. And it would do a lot better than a major movie because it's going to be your hauled the suicide squad. Right. Wait. What was the last one called suicide squad? Okay. Okay. Why are you doing this? I don't sound WBZ. Like, you're not the Warner Brothers. Yeah. Like what what are they thinking? We wait. Wait, wait. But it's James Gunn. I didn't see that. James Gunn suicide squad movie is a total reboot. I didn't see the James Gunn part. Okay. What how while that changes changes everything because it don't James Gunn? If you don't know is the writer director of both guardians of the galaxy movies. Well in other news that I have he also big news. He is also coming back for guardians of the galaxy three. This is just an amazing amazing thing why why they removed them to begin with was ridiculous. But should be it. It should be expound on that a little. Yeah. Go for he was removed rather hastily very quick from guardians of the galaxy three when it came to surface. What had happened was? So barring the politics of the situation, James Gunn like most Hollywood people is very very. Opinionated. He's very on the left and opinionated. Yes. In an activist. I guess in a bit you could say but not in your face about it. But anyway, he is so. When there was a little bit of a witch hunt where they're trying to take down Hollywood people. So it got bigtime thrown around on the media from a conservative blogger. I believe they dug up some old tweets of his from like two thousand six or seven. Yeah. Longtime ago really early and they were basically jokes that he was making on Twitter, but off color jokes that weren't really funny. They didn't really land and they were pertaining to some sensitive. I don't even really know what they were. I read them once I think they were supposedly about like there were like pedophile jokes. Okay. And some of those can be fun. They weren't they weren't funny. And they were dumb and he had since later on apologized for them. And but like I was trying to be funny. It wasn't funny. You know, it was sorry. Yeah. And this is like old news. And then fifteen years later, they get dug up they get passed around. And I mean within minutes marvel or Disney's like it was like. Done fired removed off the show, and and everybody basically all the actors were like, no they stood up. Yeah. Extinct. What's the big guy's name? Dave bautista. Yes. He was one hundred percent against the idea of James Gunn being removed any like one on Twitter, and and put it out there saying like, I I I don't even want to do this movies. Like, even though I'm contractually obligated to be a part of this like I really want nothing to do with this movie without James Gunn being around. Yeah. And it's not like he was just some random writer director heckling. He was the this was his baby. Yeah. This I feel like I feel like, and they were marvel movies to could've could've done something a little bit differently with that. So it comes out now, sir. What six months later because now you look like in idiot bringing him back when you got rid of them in the first place. But now, you're like, okay. You can come back. They bring him back, and they basically say, well, he apologized, and he took he took credit for the mistake, and blah, blah, blah. He shouldn't have been fired in the first place. You could have done this six months ago. But they send it to it. I don't care. What happened? I'm just glad he's back. Sure. Apparently, they have they went out there and said they never ever even interviewed anybody else. So they knew this whole time. Basically they were gonna hire him back. This was just a so they just want to delay the process day. Just wanted the heat today down make sense, you know, no, it does it doesn't make whatever. No. I'm glad he's back in. Yes. As a my it seems by all accounts, he seems to be a wonderful person. He's links working with them. If he's doing suicide squad. I think he could change some things around because when you take a property like guardians of the galaxy and make it what it is. Yeah. Dang. I mean, everybody when they heard guardians of the galaxy was going to be a movie everybody was like, what are they doing that? You know, when they made the last suicide squad movie, they attempted to make James gunny a little bit with music, and it was a light on David Finch. No. It was her the guy who go here. I don't know. Yeah. David gwalior. He was I think the guy who wrote Batman v superman and a bunch of the NIT see movies at the time. But it was the same guy who did that movie. Fury was it. Yeah. Okay. So I think. It was David Koya. I think you're right. But and and I was kind of excited about David air, David air, yet writer director of that and fury. I think but either way I was kind of excited about it. Because I knew he had done some really good work, but David hair, by the way, went on from that to he's doing bright too. He did do it was one. He did. Right before suicide squad was fury. Yeah. And that I never saw that. But it got really good. I haven't seen it yet either. But a lot so many people have told me any need to check that out. Now, you haven't haven't seen yet that movie from two thousand fourteen. That's when it came out. Yeah. Fury came out in two thousand fourteen. That's correct. Yeah. He. He he wrote training day. Into the husband and one any he's doing the training day TV show which apparently exists. I didn't know that. I didn't know that either. It's like out oh came out in two thousand seventeen I think it's canceled now, but training day man talk about a movie there on our top movies list. Probably could have been pretty good, right? That's good. That's good that. That's why I thought like this guy could do some good work with suicide squad. But he didn't know he didn't at all. But James Gunn will. So here's a another thing that intrigued me was that. So there there's always been a lot of problems with the flash movie like Warren brothers movie, there's they've lost directors. They've lost writers. They've been like throwing things back and forth with this movie for the actor though. Yes. So as Remillard, which I liked, you know, he was good. He apparently is very very committed to this thing because he told the us because he's got nothing else going on. Yeah. Well, he was in the think he was in those Harry Potter movies. Those fantastic beasts oh was he as a lead though? Nobody was in there. He did. He was kind of bigger in them. I think anyway, he's very very connected to this. This and wants it to happen, really bad. So he told Warner Brothers. He's going to write it. He's writing it with grant Morrison. Really, he's got grant Morrison and him to write it. And I think the deadline for him to turn in a script is Friday this week. Wow. And he wanted the here's what scares me about it though. I like perked up when I heard grant Morrison 'cause I was like that could be really cool grant Morrison getting his hands on a flash movie. But the so he didn't like the direction the writers were going because it was like a kind of a goofy movie is the way they claimed it to be like funny and goofy. And he wanted a darker type of movie that kind of scares me just because we know how that goes with DC and Warner Brothers. How they do the dark stuff all the time. I normally am a fan of it in. Comic books. But with the flash I don't they're probably looking at the success of the TV show. Yeah. But that's not really a dark TV. I mean, it's I mean, I guess it can be a towel. I thought. Okay. Yeah. I see what you mean. You know, he he wants to. So as Miller wants it to be a little bit of a darker take in. Maybe it can be really good with grant Morrison because I trust that have a dark movie with some moments of levity in it you can and you can do it. Well, it just scares me on what they've done in the past because and it's it's never act one or two. That's the problem. It's act three that always turns out to be a big bowling red lava molten steel thing that makes no sense. Well, let's put it this way. Okay. And the whole world turns into fire DC has made the serious ones right for the most part. Rife marvel stuck with the light hearted tone. But there have been DC movies where they have attempted to inject the light hearted tone. And those have been the ones that fell flat Justice league. Yeah. Because they just didn't do it. Right. But then if you see a man he'll understand that. They did it pretty well. They my point is they've had more success as much as you can. You know, say that the darker takes they've done in the past have have not been as good. They seem to have landed better than their attempts to more lighthearted. I agree fair. They're not good at they weren't good at it. Right. And even there was moments of of fun in wonder woman. I wouldn't call that a lighthearted movie by any means. No. But it was at least it was at least something of that. Right. You know, it was a little bit more light hearted. Especially like, I said the first two acts the third act. They went back to their old routes and said, let's turn the world to fire. I think there was a lot. There's a lot of times. I was thinking, you know, like, why are they doing this? When they have grant Guston on the TV show is so great, I know TV show, so good. But there, okay, the visual effects, you can do with a speedster in the movies. Like what they've done with quicksilver on the marvel side with the flash and some of the DC movies. Is. So amazing cool. Yeah. That like I'm all for that. I'm one hundred percent MAG finish. They have the biggest DC has the biggest. I mean, they should wanna flash movie more than anything because this is the one character the one storyline that already exists that literally reboots the entire everything if they do flash point they'll reboot the entire universe now. I know they did it on TV. Yeah. But you could still do it in the movies. And I think it could go over very successfully. Because not everybody is watching the Flash TV show, just remake the animated flashpoint movie. Yeah. Live action and then start everything else from scratch. I agree. Did you hear the news? I don't know if you've got this for the news, though, speaking of DC and starting from scratch the rumors on who they're wanting to cast possibly for Batman. Than your news. I don't know. It's not. One sparkly sparkly vampire. Oh, I did here. I did hear about it. And I didn't wanna come on his news because I don't think it's true. I don't hope that what's his name, Pat. And so I can't see him being Batman sorry. He can't be he can brood he can brewed with the best of them. I don't care. I don't want him as Batman. And that that would be the only situation where I. Am not excited about a Batman movie. They just need to bring it in a no name actor. Yeah. I'm fine with Armie hammer. I'm all in the bag for me. I'm fine with anybody. But Robert Pattinson like you cannot give me Robert Pattinson. And and me be okay with it. It's just not going to happen. And if he sparkly would be pissed because I think he just walks around sparkley doesn't he I don't know. He he walks around brooding. Any of those the case? All right. Let's see so. Let's see we had a couple of trailers come out. Oh, yeah. We did. Yeah. One one today. Real big one. You're going to talk about the Quentin Tarantino one. Nope. Oh didn't know about it. What is that? Oh, my Lord of Hollywood. Yes. I haven't seen the trailer yet it came out. I think it was today once upon a time in Hollywood. Yeah. I I don't know I missed that. Because I'm really looking forward to that movie. As it looks so good. I just when I watched the trailer. I didn't know anything about it. I mean, I knew it existed, but I didn't know the premise or anything. So what is the premises? Well, still quite one hundred percent, sure. But I know it follows Leonardo DiCaprio and his stunt double which is Brad Pitt and they're obviously actors and it's following those two guys in Hollywood. And Kevin Smith's daughter is in Harley Quinn. She's in the movie. Okay. 'cause she put a thing on Instagram. Like, I can't believe I'm in this movie checkout. A trailer. It's gonna be so effing ING. Good like, she's really excited about it. And I am too. Once I saw I I can't explain to you like really what the premise is going to be about. I think literally just follows these guys acting career. It was like a murder mystery too. Maybe it is. Okay. I don't know. Like somebody else watched the trailer or maybe I should watch it again and really pay attention. I was just like captivated that. I love Leonardo Di Caprio in Tarantino movie. It's awesome. I love Brad Pitt in a Quinton Tarantino movie. That's awesome. Very different for him. While Brad Pitt's Bendon, inglorious bastards that was like a freaking awesome movie. True. Yeah. This is Quentin Tarantino's night ninth film hunt. It looks really really good. I'm into it comes out comes out in July. I was trailer out. That is a good one. The other trailer that came out was season. Three of. Stranger things. Oh, I didn't see that either. Yeah. I'm way behind the times here, the stranger things trailer came out that they're dropping that season July fourth so on fourth of July that comes out looks really good again eleven has longer hair. She looks like a normal girl doing normal girl things until later in the trailer. If you're not watching stranger things what's wrong with. Yeah. You shame on you. That's that's a show right there. It is. And and it's so weird. Because like, okay. So many other shows that I would be more. Quick to talk about because you are with them longer, but stranger things is so good that it's impossible to not like digest the whole season in like a twenty four hour Spanish it so hard to do. So like watching it over the course of months like you would be game of thrones. Right. It feels like so there's twenty episodes out between the two seasons. It feels like you watch that within a day or two. I feels like what season two because I don't really remember the premise losing, Terry. Good. It's I liking it more than season. Yeah. I like it better than season one. That's what I was just gonna say I really do. I think it ended phenomenally it gives you more gives you more of what you want to see. I remember that one great thing about that show. And I'm always using it as the standard bearer for all these other period shows. Yeah. Like, captain marvel tried to be nineties moving nothing. And what was the other one bumble bee tried to be an eighties movie? They can't do it right and stranger things is the old. Emmett standard of it's done. Right. It looks like all then nails talking about the scenes and the scenery. I'm talking about like how they shoot it. And it it's shot like an eighties movie and the guy who created it and directed it. Well, it wasn't even alive in the eighties. Like, he's young. It's two people to brother young. Yeah. They're very young. So they were like dark. Dark. They're like our age. They're good at what they do. We in the eighties. But there were kids, you know. Yep. Yeah. It's really good. This this season looks like so the kids are growing up, and they specifically say like we're can't do little kid things anymore. Like, what did you expect us like to not move on not grow up? See there's some in inside turmoil. There. I'll be interested to see that. Because one of the great thing is about that show is just their innocence yet. And I think they are starting to come out of that innocence a little bit, but they're going to be pulled right back to each other. Because of whatever demon or whatever something is happening season two was they found out there was more of them. And they say, yeah. Okay. And then eleven gets her like powers and stuff like she's really in control of repairs. And yeah, this one this one looks good check out that trailer looks pretty good. I'm is one writer in it. Yes. Is she crying nonstop? She wasn't. She was staring blankly when you see her sitting in the living room. If there's one criticism I have of stranger things season one. It's that she's almost unbearable a she. I mean, I wouldn't call her unbearable. But she's a nutjob. He's just like blubbering all over to scenery blubbering. I mean, if your kid was in the upside down, wouldn't you be freaking out? Yeah. But she just a lot of weird thing. She's very weird. I think she's very weird. Just like normally so too. Yeah. And then what's the guy? What's the actor David sometime or you're talking about though, the sheriff guy he's like the Hollywood eight guy now. Yeah, he he looks really good in this like he's the same character. But it just I like his character. He's also since something terribly. Hell, that's right. He's new hillbilly. And I wasn't a fan of that until I saw him in the makeup and realized he'd look exactly like Ron Perlman because Ron Perlman was healthy. I and looked like hell boy, I think he might be going to be in suicide squad too. Boca as who I'll tell you here in a second. Wait, you think he was in the first suicide squad or the new one coming out? I don't know. Disregard. Disregard doesn't. Yeah. It doesn't matter. So that was some of the expert tala ver that's not as name isn't. He was in the last suicide squad as Dexter tala ver okay, his actual names. David Wright yet David harbor harbor. Couldn't take it. Yeah. I was thinking I wasn't thinking anything. I just knew it was David something. As of midnight last night. Chris, you know, what happened? Oh, he was wait a second. Oh, we're still on him. Yeah. We're on Mr Harbour never mind. Go ahead. Who what where when what do you know, what happened as of midnight last night? No, huge bringing sprung. No. This is huge. I think it is today. Yeah, you're right. But. Is it bigger than the changing of the seasons? Jerry. Yes. It is Disney officially acquired FOX as of midnight. I cannot know that thought it had to go through the it's clever is closed, buddy. It's done deal. Seventy one point three billion dollar deal. The holy cow bub-bubba billion dollar deal. It seems a high doesn't it? They bought larval for like four billion. They bought Star Wars for four billion. This is the report seventy one point three billion dollar deal at all so much money. Their sports and news divisions are worth wait. They didn't get the sports news division. No. They just got FOX like entertainment like Twentieth Century, Fox. Yes. And probably box searchlight and those. Yeah. Think of the backlog of the Simpson of stuff all everything the liens the Queen alien is now a Disney Princess Disney Queen I saw. That is of mean today that was kinda funny. They had alien at DisneyWorld on the great movie ride. Oh, really there's great movie ride at Hollywood studios, and they it was a cool ride. That's closed. Now. It's going to be. It's a it's a new it's supposed to be a new really cutting edge. Mickey and Minnie great movie escape ride that they're building and supposed to be like this mind-blowing rights supposed to be the greatest, right? It's ever been made. It opens this fall, I think or this summer. But anyway, before that there was a great movie ride, and you rode on this movie are on this train tram type thing. And there was like a real person that was like the guide and that was in front like your tour guide. Yeah. I feel like I was at one time. They have a set piece where you go through like a mob movie, and there's a real life actor that like shoot some other guy, and then he jumps on the train with you. And he like hijacks it on its it was one of my favorite rights, but it's closed forever. But anyway, they take you through the alien world. And and there's Zena morph and they pops out from the ceiling. Really scared. The heck out of cash when he was a little, oh, I don't doubt it. I mean Zena more scare me is that what they're called Zina morphs. Of course. I don't remember. That's. A great movie that should be in the top twenty movies list. Not the first one the second one. I agree aliens aliens. Yeah. That's a great one. Not the first one. The second was second one's the best one. I agree with you the third one is not because the kill off all the ones after that. Newt not good Newt days in like the very beginning of the museum boilers, nineteen seventy something. No, that's an eighty something. Like an eighty nine the first one was in the seventies. Yeah. But the third one wasn't was here. So yeah, that's a really big deal. I don't what what do you think? Here's my question. How long do you think it's gonna take Disney before they put out a FOX property as a movie you think going to use the Twentieth Century, Fox banner still? No, no, no. I'm just saying like one of their properties. How long do you think before Disney makes its own movie that that I think the I will do is X men? Probably. Yeah. How long do you think that's gonna take six months year? Like, do you think do you think they've been working on Sunday already know years? You think it'll be two years before you see a FOX that's a s on average. What it takes for a movie from beginning to release is two to three years. I'm I'm going to bet you it's it's less than a year. We'll see something of of FOX's that Disney puts out now. Less than a year. Put it marketing your calendar. So they own FX know, everything everything, FOX entertainment. It's always sunny in Philadelphia, they own do you? Lay? I guess. Yeah. Interesting. Yeah. That's a Disney show. So what is FOX, by the way avatar was FOX planet of the die hard. It can do a new die hard. I'd be down for that. I'd be down for a die hard. I could do a diehard Kingsman. Fantastic. Four. Of course, Kingsman is really good. And maybe they'll do fantastic for could see that. Hopefully, they do a better independence day. They did just come out with another one of those movies. There wasn't wasn't there. Another one. Yeah. There was I did not go see that. All I might have seen it. I don't remember. I know it was not good. Well, if you didn't see it, you don't know that. Well, the reviews say it was not good anyway. So every movie franchise Disney bought from FOX you want me to read this get after it. All right. I mean, I don't know. How many there are here? But let's see. I mean avatar. Let's let let's see alien vs predator. It's an alphabetical order alien predator. Avatar diehard franchise. Fantastic. Four the Kingsman franchise the Martian. Planning of the apes red Spero. Dr were wait Star Wars. Oh, so Disney owns Lucasfilm, but the distribution rights for the classic movies. We're FOX they own that. Now, they'll probably release them. I bet you anything X men. I don't know if there's a bunch more. I'll let you know if I find anything Alvin and the chipmunks they got that. Oh, getting another tool. Bill. We could get another chip wrecked. Home alone. I night at the museum franchise. Percy? Jackson franchise. The X files. Of course, they own now. That's a big one the maze runner franchise. Who cares? I thought those were pretty good never watched them the chronicles of narnia. Ooh. Those are good. They're okay. At least the first one was fight club. Independence day mash amaze runner. Tons of stuff tons of stuff guys. Do you think they'll do a man I don't know whether it'd be excited or not excited because now it's just more of a yet? Police such producers less stuff. I agree it. I don't know. There's no way around it. You might as well just try to be excited for it. Will they cancel the Simpsons? No, no. They won't. So I don't really question. Anyway, what's next on the news Europe? I don't have any. Oh, you didn't have any news. Just the James Gunn thing because I'm so excited about that. Oh, you told me that there is a big. Was another big chiller Toy Story. Four drop today. Oh, I did have that on here. Didn't I I don't know. What to do? I did. Okay. Well, it did drop. I did watch. It. You didn't see it, obviously. I did. Oh, you did. See it. Yeah. I saw the Toy Story for what did you think about? No. I mean, did you watch the trailer? Yes. Okay. What did you think about it? I think they're I guess you would assume that little Bo peep is the bad guy. Right. No. Yeah. You think so? Yes, she's keeping Woody away. I don't know. She looked cool. She looks cool. But I think he's the first thing that jumped out of me as the animation looks at maze. Of course, the animation looks amazing. And of course. Like all of it's going to be good. But I really do believe that little Bo peep is going to be the bad guy. I bet she's keeping Woody. I thought it was interesting. The trailer. I don't like the sport. No. That was a big thing. It was weird. Like why I don't know. I'm going to guess that. It's the movie's gonna be a lot different than what we see. But I'm guessing it's going to be pretty good and deep. Oh, sure toys story three by the way is a freaking amazing movie. All of them are good. But Toy Story three is by during three jumps out at me as incredible movie that scene at the end where they know they're going to die, and then they decide to give up and accept it. And they all hold hands. And they go into the incinerator. I don't remember his one of the movie scenes I've ever seen. And I know people might think that's ridiculous. But I'm gonna tell you but in the contract single time. I watched that movie. I cried I could understand that incredible. That movies amazing. I don't I re-watch Toy Story. Now, my youngest is on a Toy Story kick. He's discovered it. He's like sixteen months old he discovered it. I watch Toy Story one boy is like the animation. Oh, it's rough. But it's like ninety nine thousand nine hundred five I think it is ninety five and that's that's like the beginning that started animation. And and when you look at it through that prism. It's not that bad. Like, the toys are good the people. That's what's really rough. Yeah. The people are not good like what's sid? Always bugged me about them. So okay. Here's the do in the first one they make. I think it's the first one they make sit out to be this horrible Ville in child. Yes. But he's he doesn't know the toys are alive. He's really just a kid using his magic nation and playing with toys, but they make him out to be like so bad human being. And then at the end they reveal that they are alive to him think how much that would have destroyed that kid. And then they make up point of making you see that. He's now become a garbage, man. Yeah. Because they were like look look at a garbage sid kid now. He's a garbage, man. You handle garbage everyday serves you right for melting our friends. Meanwhile, most garbage men make on average make way more money than your average guy a guy deployed with. He's a garbage, man. It's a great job. He's my favorite garbage, man. He doesn't pick up my garbage. But he's my favorite. Well, he's my favorite to shout out to the ball up Titi. All right. So that's all the news. Yeah. That's all the news. I get less. You want me to find more not? That's cool. You should get a bunch of what we're watching. And then I get a new segment we can do at the end. Yeah. We have a new segment. I don't have so much of you've got what you're watching. I've only watched one thing I've watched a ton and you can have get effort. So I am not a ton. I caught up on some stuff I finished umbrella academy. So we can officially talk about it. Okay. Good. So you're the last three episodes still by far the last three episodes are really good much better. Right. I mean you start at at eight. So there's ten eight nine hundred eight it's it's fairly fine throughout its the right at the end of the ending with the big. That's what you're like. Whoa. Yeah. I don't want to party shocking. Yeah there, and I kind of knew what was coming, but it was knocking. I knew something was coming. Okay. I knew I knew she was going to lose their cool. I knew something was I didn't think that's what she was going to do. And I don't think she did that she didn't do that on purpose. It was like a reaction. Yeah. But then her descent after that is pretty okay? First of all, I I said Ellen page was awful. She redeems herself in the episode. So I really maze held my town. Pretty good performance in those last three episodes. I thought she did a really good job. And I didn't expect her to be able to convey the their spoilers had guys. Okay. Let's just say that we're not gonna talk about this very long. So you know, if you skip ahead five or ten minutes is fine. But I wouldn't worry too much about getting spoiled because there is a big shot. There's one like big shock. But after that, it's nothing you kind of get the gist. So it's not like a heat your blues out a huge bit. It's surprised me more. So that she was alive after that. Like, she stated that they saved her life. I thought I I was like holy crap. They're going to kill her like, she's dead. I actually thought initially. I'm like, well that's dumb. But then I kind of like the they basically they cut her throat. So she loses her vocal. Yes. She can't. She can't talk which is cool a good idea because it takes powers away, essentially. One hundred percent takes Oliver powers away of influence because she can influence people. So she's good in Ellen page is able to convey like anger very, well, which I wouldn't expecting from her. It's like. I don't I don't even know like she just seemed she seemed bad. But I don't think she is. No, well, and then I mean, that's kind of one thing. That's bugged me about that show in an hour has come. There's a lot of plot holes and things like that are and I don't like it necessarily when a show does. Oh, if you would have just if one little thing had been different or you would not locked her in that vault. It probably would have changed things like that kinda get me. But at the same time, but I don't know. Can't you say that about life like had I not on this thing. Claus is awesome. Klaus turns out to be really awesome. He gets more powers at the end of it with octopus thing, it's like a crack in. Yeah. I don't know. That's that's the powers for number five. If you can catch that say that again. Okay. So number five was the one that died when they were kids, Ben. No number five is the guy who jumps. Okay, time one of the other ones. Then one of them that died. Remember, there's the staticy to and every yes, he died when their kids that's the one Claus is seeing throughout the whole show. Right. So Claus is power is that he can channel him into bringing him back from the dead into reality. Those Octopussy powers Octopussy. Okay. Those are the powers of that guy. Oh, and they do that earlier. They show that. That's what's his hours were. They did. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Oh, I miss. I must have made show that. And then there's some drawings of him with the tentacles out. Okay. I must have missed that clauses. Big powers. He's able to bring somebody back dead. Yeah. Temporarily into the living world he's basically able to channel them. So it wasn't his powers. Gotcha. It was the other guys power. 'cause I knew he could talk to the dead and bring the dead back for a short time. I wasn't aware that that kid had that power. Yeah. Okay. So able to bring him back at will actually. Yeah. Or anybody for that matter, which is like a double power for him. Yeah. You know, whoever he gets the powers of whoever he brings back. So do you see where I was going the last time when I was trying to tell you about how so they kinda save the world. But yet they didn't because then like. Blows up the moon. Right. And the moon's coming like hurdling, I thought that was a really cool scene where you see the move hurtling towards the earth through that. Larry cool as really cool. Well, they're all standing there. And then all of a sudden they look up and they're like, oh, that's an issue. I kinda thought they were going to end it. I didn't do it was going to be it. But then they definitely leave it open for season two because they jump into the future. We get us. The past harshly. I kind of doubt it, but you don't think they'll bring it back for season two. I think it had a very very good opening season. Did it I think so. Okay. It was a very expensive show. Yeah. They put some money into it. But in any case. When they kill when she kills her boyfriend or whatever the millions of nights. Yeah. That's crazy. Isn't that amazing? The last three episodes are really good. I don't know whether or not I can sit here and say that it's worth sitting through the first seven, right? The reason I told you that is because you had already watched seven episodes. And I was like dude you've got to understand. What's funny when I went back to watch it? I watched all of eight to except for about the last ten minutes. Oh, no way. And then I had fallen asleep or something. Yeah. So no, it's good. It's and it's one of those you can't really skip skim through it. You got to watch it from the beginning, you do because they give you a lot of backstory on each definitely makes the first seven worth it. But, you know, do what you will if you're if you watch a few of them in your into the style. Yeah. Probably like it. I wouldn't tell anybody to just like to go seek it out. Like, if you've started it, and there's a lot of things to watch. Yeah. There's a lot of other things you could be watching what I thought it was cool. And I'm definitely after those I'm in the back for season two. Yeah. Hopefully, they can keep it moving a little quicker. I understand they had a lot of exposition cover. Oh, much backstory with all these people that they have to cover like so much. And I think that that is a big problem with trying to tell a story from a comic book because comic books have like an infinite amount of time to to talk about this stuff, especially when you're doing single issue. Continuing story runs like where you've got one hundred issues, and you can have thirteen issues which would be, you know, at twenty four pages of peace. That's like a book write off a novel of story on one or two characters. Right. It all that's really hard to condense it down into a TV show. I did like that scene when they're in the phone booth. And space boy has to relay. Whatever the girl's name. Oh, yeah. He used to convey what she wants to say to her daughter. Yes. And he starts, but dealing basically also what he wants to say to her. Yeah. Yeah. It was good. That is good. That's the only redeeming quality of the of Luther that big guy like his acting. Yeah. He's better at the end that I that was the only part that was really that. Good of him. Yeah. He could've done so much better with his character. It really bothers me what they did with him. They just fell really flat for me. So there was that that I finished. I also on your on your recommendation. I watched the disaster artist. Yeah. I wanna know what you thought of this. Okay. So I. Liked it a lot definitely cut my attention throughout. Yeah. And I definitely like was very intrigued and liked the entire movie wanted to watch it. I thought that the what's their names the actors. I can't Tommy with so no, no James Franco and Dave Franken. I thought they were both really good. I thought Dave Franco particularly was really good James Branko too. I mean, what struck me on that movie? Definitely. 'cause like I said it was a good solid movie cut my attention the whole way through do. I think it's like amazing. No, no. I don't think. So either if you miss it. It's totally fine. Yeah. But it's an intriguing story for sure. But what the stand out for that movie for me was like the supporting characters. So it's got just a cavalcade of famous comedians. Yes. That are like the supporting actors throughout the movie, and they're the best part like Paul Scheer. Yeah. And and Jeff Seth Rogan a really good in it Judd appetite. Oh, absolutely steals a scene the whole. Yeah. He he has like one scene where he's in. A restaurant and Tommy walks up to them. And it's like the most ridiculous thing that he's like what why did you let him come by me? But was it that the the waitresses like, oh, I'm sorry. Like, what does she say? She says something if he's like, yeah. No shit could have got him away from me like a year ago. That's really good. The whole thing is really good. And you do do a really good job. This super weird weird character. They really do a good job of. Making him not seem quite so weird. And kinda humanizing him to a little bit DC. What I mean about? I mean, James Franco played this dude to a T. No. I mean, he did how do you do that? Yeah. How do you? He literally like transformed himself into this guy is weird, dude. And he does he does phenomenal job. That's what blew me away the acting, and it's great. And so like, I say if you're into. I don't know how to say whether or not I just feel like I know most people that I know probably wouldn't care to watch that movie. But if you are into. You know? Movies. You probably like it. I don't know. It was a it was a really interesting movie. I can't say that it was interesting. Because again, what I was trying to explain the last time is that this is based off of a movie that's terrible. You know, it's got a huge cult following. But the movie is self is absolutely terrible. Did you have any do you want to see that movie? Now. No, not not really, I guess, I don't think I'm going to get it. Like, I'm gonna get the joke that everybody's on. I guess I should see it. Now that I've seen the disaster artist. But he's gone on to do some stuff to after that. I don't. Yeah. I don't know produced a sitcom or was it in the sitcom the neighbors, and there was a couple of things he's done. So they've both worked, you know, which I thought was kind of interesting. Yeah. Gregson astro? I know has been involved with some things, but they haven't been coming out this year. I think they do they had a movie recently within the last couple of years come out that one. Awards. So I don't know. It's interesting. Anyway, some other things I watched I started. I watched the rented the movie, mortal engines. Mortal engines, you've not seen as a newer movie that came out his eater. Jackson movie was one of his newer movies. It's based on a believe a why book series kind of in the in the vein of all these wipe book at application movies that came out like hundred games, and he's runner each one keeps getting worse and worse and worse. I think yes, I'm going to tell you this one looked like it costs everything like it cost all the money, really. And like I said I was excited. I mean, I I when I saw it originally in theater like the trailer. I I was not interested. I continued to not be interested. It got really poor terrible reviews, essentially, but I thought you know, I'll check it out. It's it's pretty bad. Oh, it is. Yeah, I didn't even make it through the whole movie I made it about halfway through the movie fell asleep. And then I rented it. So by the time, I was going to finish it the next day already expired, and I will not run it again to watch the second half. Now, I might I might check it out if it comes out on HBO and finish it. I would like to see the last half of it. It looks like it was super expensive. So it says in a post apocalyptic world where cities ride on wheels and consume each other to survive two people meet in London and try to stop a conspiracy. Yeah. I don't know, man. It's it looks like it's cool looking it's very steam punk. Yeah. I'm not in the steam punk. It's just not my thing. Got a forty four meta score. It's what's that on rotten tomatoes? I don't know. I always go by rotten tomatoes Zigli. It's six point two out of ten well in any case on rotten tomatoes. It is a twenty-seven with an audience score of fifty four anyway, cool looking movie, but I'm not into steam punk. So that kind of loses it for me. Yeah. And the acting is pretty poor and the stories just not that interesting. And I think we can you know, I think the why a revolution might be ending. So I had a have now I just remembered I have to what you are watching because I've watched two things so far, and I have one that kind of falls in line with this. Okay. Go ahead. I'm done with that one cannot recommend that movie. Do not watch it yet. So might be if it's free on Netflix in you have nothing to do on a Sunday afternoon. I will give you a million things so watch instead of that. But if you want to check it out because it is kinda cool looking and I'm in the bag. For post-apocalyptic stuff. I know. I usually am to that. What? No, it's not. It's not anything that I was interested in. So I watched a show that was a move a Netflix movie that is has huge like marketing and promotional stuff called triple frontier. Oh, yeah. I wanted to see that Ben Affleck. So Oscar Isaac Oscar Isaac benefactor Pedro Pescara L huge cast. Yeah. There's a lot of really big people at this. Right. The gal is going to be in one of the new Star Wars shows. Right. Yeah. Yes. Yeah. He is. Yeah. He is the the main. He's Boba fett. Right. Like, I believe so. Yeah. Anyway, he. Okay. So they they all worked together in the in the military before they were like part of a special forces unit. They did a lot of crazy things for the government. And then they've basically all retired. Oscar Isaac is the only one that is still doing that type of work. Bouncer Isaac is poed Damran in the correct new Star Wars movies, by the way, he he still doing that type of work in Brazil been following this like. I don't know. He's like a he's a drug dealer gun smuggler. What like weapons market guy in Brazil? He's been following this guy trying to find him for years and years and years he eventually finds out where he's at in the jungle basically in they need to go the jungle Cirque gonna take the sky down. Finally, and he goes back to try to get his buddies to help him, but they aren't just gonna take him down and like tournament to the authorities. They're gonna take him down and steal all of his money. Okay. 'cause they're like, you know, what we've done this for ourselves or we've done this for the government for so long and gotten literally nothing out of it. Why don't we like take back what we deserve like get some money and just be able to retire, you know, and live comfortable lives again in never have to do any of the stuff again. That's what they're gonna do get their buddies together. That's they're going to do. It had really. Good build up. So the the again like the first act and a half are very good. Don't don't spoil it. I'm not going to spoil. It the second act is okay. Third act really fell off. There's just so many questions to me as to why these professional like operatives. Right. Do the things they do and make the choices they make during this operation. And and on their way back it just makes very little sense on some of the stuff they do. And it just ruined it for me. Because it seemed like the choices they make in the movie were only to make the movie look good. Okay. You know what? I mean. Like, it was like is if they made this choice to only add more attention to the movie made no literal sense to what they were doing. I hate that. What I? Don't want to say, it's like the expendable. But I feel like it's like the expendable for these actors. So is this movie made with the intention of wide release? Not good and then bought and released on Netflix over so literally made to release on Netflix like bright was. Okay. No. So I it was not it was made to be released in movie theaters. What happened with this movie is that they had so many people this movie was like written in early two thousands. And then all through I guess, I shouldn't say early two thousands. It was after two thousand ten but it was like since two thousand ten they've been trying to make this movie, and they've had so many people sign on and the drop off and sign on and drop off, and then rewrites and rewrites and rewrites and then sign on drop off. Will Smith was signed on at one time. Ben Affleck signed on to this movie three different times before he was finalized like he signed on dropped out signed on dropped out. And then finally signed down again, they brought in Oscar Isaac. Because of I I can't remember I I can't remember who I read. There was two people that were in the movie guaranteed to be in the movie and then ended up dropping out and they replaced him with Oscar Isaac and somebody else right at the end and Charlie hun hunting men on men. Charlie Hunnam Hunnam. Yeah. He's in it. So they brought those two guys in right at the last minute before they started filming, and you just kind of tell it just was a hard put together movie. It seemed like a really good premise in the story. I think could be really good. Just fell off at the end for me. And it was like so bad that I was just like I'd rather just go to sleep than watch this. But I did I trust it out till the end. And I watched it all, but I didn't want to finish it. So this always seemed like when I saw the trailer for this movie. It's the kind of movie that it would be not interested in in at all. Like for me. This is just not my kind of movie. I'm just not a big fan of like generic action movies are military based action movies or drug dealer related movies. I'm just it's not my thing. Yeah. But that that's this the cast. I saw the cast. And I'm like, okay. I like Ben Affleck a lot a big fan. I'm a huge fan. Oscar in everything he does. He's amazing. And I don't know member the other guys, but everybody else looked cool in it. So I'm like, you know, what I was kind of getting excited about it. And I've just seen it there. But again for me, it's not my kind of movie. So I've just never brought myself to watch it yet. I didn't even know what it was about. I just do the cast and had seen like the trailer kept like playing all the time on net flicks. And I'd pass by and then. Last trailers kind of. I didn't even really watch the trailer. I did watch in the trailer does seem a little bit. Obvious. Yeah. It is. It's an obvious movie. Just so that's what got me like I just for me. Generally when I see stuff where it's like. Guys in flak jackets with machine guns. Generally. It's like mass not might think. I don't think I would have watched. It had. I not like last Friday. I was super sick. I had the flu Pukhan a bunch of stayed home from work. So that's where I watched all this because I was sick last Thursday. Oh, really? Yeah. The afternoon often. Yeah. I watched all this stuff. And that's what I watched last Friday was that that movie, and again, I just wasn't wasn't my thing. So that's that's my go ahead. Okay. Well, I only have two more really. But one quickly I watched I'm a big fan of Ricky Gervais space big big fan. Okay. I know it's not everybody's Cup of tea, but I really really like pretty much enjoy everything that he does. I like extras a lot. I've never watched. Life's too short. I really liked that a lot and some of his movies that he's been in. I'm that he's written in may. Made. I've really enjoyed. So I generally like him a lot I like his comedy. So anyway, I'm I had nothing to do one night. I watched his standup special. He hasn't had a stand up special in seven years. I just saw that he had one. So we came out with stand up special. And it was good. I liked it. It wasn't. It wasn't anything. Amazing. He's a he's a shock comic. So he like he's kind of off putting to me sometimes. Yeah. It's his comedy special was, okay. But since I had watched that it brought up this new show that he has out he wrote and directed and it's a Netflix release and it's called afterlife afterlife. Okay. Two words though. Some like, you know what? I like I like I've always liked Ricky Jay base is writing and shows more than his standup. So I'm like, you know, I'll check it out. So it's like, it's not very many episodes. It's like, maybe eight episodes. I don't even think it's that many at six. So is it a BBC show then that was put on Netflix? Well, it was it's not I don't think. So. Okay. But it was definitely pained in the BBC format. Yeah. Because that's that's what I was going to say a lot of the times BBC shows are only, you know, six or eight episodes, and then put them on Netflix. I think this is six episodes. It's on Netflix. I don't think it was originally BBC, really. So I think it was a Netflix original. Okay. And they're only half hour episodes. So it's a very low low Camilleri show short. Yeah. Boy, it's really good. Really? It's very very good. Very very powerful very emotional. So it's it's not a comedy. It is a classic Ricky Gervais, some kind of fashion. It is it is a drama with plenty of comedy interlaced drama is a drama eighty more heavy on the drama than the comedy. Okay. But it is funny at many times, it's I I would say I thought it was very funny there, you know, there were times at nine and I'm I'm watching the show at eleven o'clock midnight at night. That's when I watched stuff that Louis GS, and there were many times when I laughed out loud sitting in bed watching it, really. And then there were times when you're tearing up, you know, it's heavy man. So you I mean you buy into it. Then I mean, you evidently, okay. I'll give you the premise. So it is basically. The show is Ricky Gervais sizes. In a small town. He works for a small local newspaper as a writer, and it picks up the show picks up right after his wife passed away and kind of the theme of the show going throughout every episode is him watching basically from the hospital she recorded on her laptop like her. Last confessional to him or like what she wants him to do with the rest of his life. And so they'll play like a clip of that. And then it'll go out his his life. So anyway, she dies. She's he's they're very very close. She's the love of his life. You can tell they have like the best relationship in the world. And it's just just horrendous thing she dies of cancer. And it's just very heavy. And he decides I'm going to kill myself. There's no reason for me to live. Oh, so he's getting ready to kill himself, and they have a dog, and he sees the dog, and he's like well who's gonna take care of the dog. So basically he doesn't kill himself. Yeah. But he after that he resigns in fact, he's like it's kind of like a superpower that I have now I can do whatever I want. I'm going to say whatever I want him live my life. However, I want because I always have suicide to fall back on. Wow. And so he just became comes pretty much like a terrible person. Yeah. He does. And just does whatever he wants. And he calls people out, and he not like he's not doing like horrible things. But he's just like not caring not giving shit at. All right. He's he's doing what like everybody wants to do in normal daylight, right? And things that you hold back on and he's miserable though. I mean, he's miserable and constant theme of this as like about him wanting to commit suicide and blow, but it's funny. Also, so that makes it sound, but it is very very heavy, and you go throughout this. And and you know, it has a very happy ending. I will say like. Not going to give it away, but his life comes back to life. Yup. No face. I just thought it was a really good powerful. Emotional movie that really gets you like invested in like what this would be like what he was feeling. And I thought it was incredible man. I thought it was really amazing that got made. And I thought it was a really cool that somebody in this day and age would take the time to make something like this and put it out. So he's the creator of the show he wrote to everything creator. He probably owns it. You know, I'm sure he does. And for six episodes at a half an hour a piece, you know, it's not it's not a feel good movie. Although at times, it can, but I really really liked it. And if you you know. Don't let it scare you away that it's like super sad because it is it. It. It does seem like it would be really it is it's sad. But it's also very funny. And it's very hopeful at times, I thought it was really good. It's definitely worth watching. I thought. Okay. Good. Check it out. I can I recommend that. That's my last. What you're watching? I have another one. And it is this came out in two thousand sixteen and when I had seen that it was coming out. It was a. I believe it's an ABC show. I don't normally watch a lot of network television stuff. But I always wanted to watch this. And I never did. Now it's finally net flicks. That it's called designated survivor for Sutherland, I saw that always I just never seen. So it caught my attention because of the premise right off the bat, and it reminds me of a west wing show. Yeah. Like, it's very west wing. I if you go back in our episodes, Chris we did an episode called snarf top. TV shows type ten ten TV shows. You'll know where west wing ranks. If you go back and listen to that episode for me. Anyway, it's something I enjoy this show is so designated survivor. It says that when there is a state of a state of the union address by the president and all of congress and everybody in the house and Senate. Everybody's there watching the state of the union address. There is one congressman cabinet member. That is considered the designated survivor. So they keep them in an undisclosed location one person kept away from whatever's going on, and nobody knows where he's at except for his security detail in him or her. And it they do that. Just in case. There was a massive attack on the the government and whatnot. Well, there is this one night they bombed the capitol building. Everyone dies the only person left in our government is that one cabinet member. And he happens to be in charge of it's something like, housing and development or something like that. And the day that he. This is just the pilot episode. So obviously there's way more than the episodes of that show. It was really popular show. There's well there's only two seasons and then canceled. Yes. So I thought that would show went on for a while. It's twenty four episodes of season though, twenty four really Jack Bauer. That's kind of funny. I do like Kiefer Sutherland a lot. I think he's I like you. I mean, I I've never I didn't watch twenty four I didn't either. But I've seen him in movies. And he's good. But. Donald Sutherland, he there's twenty four episodes. So there was forty. I think there was like forty eight forty five somewhere around. There was also no I've only seen seven, okay. So far, and I really enjoy it. But what happened is they cancelled it after the the second season. It was offer a little while net says picked it up. Oh, and they're remaking it and they're doing at least ten episodes for season three. So they're going to wrap the story. Yeah. I think that's probably all they're gonna do. But they they are going to make season three. It's it's in the works. Now. I think it's coming out this year. But I need to watch all of that. I'll probably binge it. It'll probably be like the only thing I watch for a little while which is not a bad thing for me because taking it back to our roots. Chris. Yeah. I am too. The roots. I'm reading comic books again rooted up as of today while it was actually a couple of days ago. I started Rudy tutti fresh and fruity. Yeah, I started reading like crazy. I finished all of Lazarus. Finally, oh, I need to get on that. I I just dug up a bunch of old Lazarus I was I was organizing my comic book collection, and I just found a bunch of trades that I had sitting somewhere. I'd read them all, but I need to like, I'm not even halfway through the story. Probably. So it's there's only twenty eight issues is that it. Yeah. Okay. Maybe that I have read most of it. There's there's twenty eight. Issues at ends on number twenty eight because I've read three trades. So that's probably fifteen issues or so. Yeah. Okay. So at least, but it's really good. I liked it a lot the reason I finished it up is because there is a new digital all digital. There's a new one coming out or I think it came out today actually called Lazarus risen. And I think it's a continuation of the story or an offshoot of the story. But it's obviously tight in. It's still by Greg. Greg rocket guys SOGA big time. I think this was if you go back to our top five comics for new readers. Yeah. We might talk about Lazarus a little bit. I might be in that. Yeah. So anyway, finish that up. But I also today I posted a picture on snarf comics of this. Did you notice I saw? Yeah. So it today's new comic book day Wednesday. Yeah. Right. Spiderman life story number one the sixties. So really, it's it's a new it's a miniseries. Six issue miniseries that chip Zadar sqi is doing really big into chips that are ski right now. Because he also did another comic book that another one came out today, which is daredevil, no fear. Cayetano w no fear. The second issue came out. The second issue came out last month. The third issue comes out to twenty seventh. So next Wednesday. That's a it's awesome. I love that. The obviously there's only two issues out. But so far, it's really good of the daredevil daredevil fights scarecrow. No, no, no kingpin is the mayor of New York. Anyway, Spiderman life story. So what this is is that it's following. So Spiderman started in nineteen sixty two thousand nine hundred sixty four something like that. When he got bit on the hand. Like, that's when it all started. Right. So what they're doing is like since spider-man's have been a thing now for fifty seven years or something like that. Yeah. So it was sixty two. So fifty seven years spider-man's Beth thing, they're just following him through his life. There's acting as if he is fifty seven years into his Spiderman life, so he's in the sixties. Well, they're starting. They're they're going by each generation or each decade. Okay. So it's it's Spiderman life story and the first one the first issue the sixties. Next issue will be as in the seventies eighties nineties, and they're going to continue on that way. Very interested in this. Did you read it? I've read the first issue which came out today read that today. Awesome. And you're not a big spider, man guy. I'm not. But this one caught my eye as soon as I saw the cover Todd McFarlane cover, doesn't it? It's so simple. And it's not chips at Areski did the cover. Yeah. He's doing all the covers also wrote it all and then who was it. Mark vaguely. Okay. He did all the art. But so as soon as I opened up this book today, I read at work and. As soon as I opened up this book today that is the second page that I took a screen shot of the second page of Spiderman swinging through the town in the in the sixties like the sixty style, dude, he just caught my eye. And I was like there is there really is nothing better than a really good as Spiderman swinging amid swing. It's one of the best comic images that exist. That's what I was going to say it's like the conic comic book image is Spiderman I don't care about. I'm all about Batman, right? You can have Batman. You can have superman man's like an iconic image. But I really don't think there's a better image or something more eye catching than Spiderman swinging between buildings or a above the buildings or on the trees, whatever like him swing in with his hands out in. His pose it, you just can't beat it. Now, especially when it's drawn so perfectly in this one page just really caught my eye. I knew I knew Mark Bagley. Stuck out to me because he was one of the creators of carnage. Oh, okay. I was not aware that he's drawn a lot of venom. And then maximum carnage that saga. He he did that just he's done a lot of Spiderman. But I also remember he had a great run. I believe on thunderbolts, I think okay fan of that familiar with him. I didn't look into his work prior to me talking about did. He did fantastic four with Matt fraction. Mark waid did hoaxers in two thousand fourteen. So he's done a ton of stuff. Yeah. So I'm gonna I'm gonna continue on with the series in. I'll probably talk about it every month. Now, I wonder if she comes out because it just I preordered all of it already. So nice. It's check that went on. Because I love Spiderman, I know you do and this. I I love Spiderman comics, and I feel like the reason why you don't just because you haven't read enough of them. I agree because it as far as comic books go. It's one of the best comic book characters superhero characters. I can't argue, and I won't argue that he's just it was never catching to me because it was too wholesome. That's what I felt like I know that there are other. There are story last out there that are not even close to what I'm talking very the prowler is decent dark, man. Jerry, the proud the prowler is deep dark man, Eric he's into the depths of human suffering. Right. I just need to suffer with everyone. Yeah. That's what I am. Who I am? You know suffrage? A suffragette suffragette city. So again, I'm gonna follow that out. It really did. Catch my eye though. Because of how simple the cover is. Yeah. It's a reliable governor. I like simple covers I don't like the busy stuff. I mean, there's artwork out there. That's really good. That might have a lot of things going on. But those covers that are just so simple. They're hiding a good story behind him. You would like there's a bunch of covers from last year marvel did like all wet when Stanley they did all their covers there were just like black. Yeah. But then like an image, and it said Stanley in a dates Bertha death, and then there was no advertisements on the back, which is all black cover with a yellow magenta. I did see those those are really cool covers you'd like those. Alright. So the other thing that I so I bought a bunch of Batman. And it was I haven't read Tom king's run of Batman. So when I talked about this a while ago 'cause I started back up reading that. I don't know if you remember. But I was talking about that the the rebirth. Yeah. Okay. I haven't read any of it. Yeah. I read like the first six issues of rebirth. I think okay. Well, I bought let's see what did I buy volumes one and two. So I read one and two I think volumes wanted. Yeah. I think so oh that's thirty two issues worth. No, I read volume one. Then there's fifteen issues in volume I read by one. Okay. So yeah, there's it's thirty two issues in two annuals. So there's you know, that's a lot of reading like the quick reads. The second one is four hundred sixty eight pages. Yeah. But they're pretty quick. There's not a lot of there's not a lot of Batman doesn't talk much yet. They're quick. They're quick. They're good. Yeah. I haven't read any of them yet. I have read none. None of it. I know. So they call my talk. Remember we talking about it. Because number one I said he was writing the jet down. Yes. Do I remember get now that you say that you read it? I absolutely remember that. Issue. It caught my eye because issue number sixty seven came out today. And I was like ooh it caught my eye, and I was like really on sixty seven yet. Yes. Absolutely came out twenty sixteen. Wow. I'm way behind. Yeah. Me too. That's why I saw that. And I was like, Ooh, I really I need to start reading this. So I bought the first two volumes. And I think there's four four volumes out right now. And then it's single issue after that. But yeah, sixty seven came out today. So I was like, Ooh, I need I need to get on that looks really good. Because in the second volume is when the whole Batman cat woman thing happens because you're familiar with him in women being married. No. They get married at some point spoilers. And then the whole like Batman penis thing. Hell bins in that, you know about that. We talked about it on the I think I remember that it was a whole big deal in DC then had to take it back and reprint the issue. You got more. No. So that's all I wanted to say is I'm bringing it back to comic 'cause we might eating again, you're going to start reading again because I'm forcing you into it will we have I have a brand new comic book segment now. Yeah. Now, we're going to segue to a brand new segment, and what it we're going to call it. What's in the box? What I was going to call it back sagged and boarded. Oh, all right. We could do that too. But I kind of like what's in the box. What's in the box? That was going for more of a seven. Type what's in the box. I recently was cleaning out. It's a head is a settler severed head in a lantern. No, that's another comic book cover that. I really liked because it's so simple. Yes. That's coming out soon. That doesn't come out 'til may though Caputo Kabuto mammalian. Gobble goo. So I was cleaning out. I have. Pretty extensive comic book collection turns out Jerry, eat a little how to control I'm really jealous of taking over an entire room of my house. That's awesome. And he'd to stop it. It's bad. No continue 'cause this is your your livelihood now. But I was cleaning out a room, and I was just doing some organizing. Okay. And I found tucked away into a corner really like a big stack of the shipping of comic. Book still in shipping boxes just boxes. Lies like Tate. Hardboard up. Stocks is full of every month. I get a box of comic books. Okay. I have subscriptions. Yeah. To comic books from g March comics yet down AMT, Illinois Shinpan. And so, you know, I'm kind of behind on them. Okay. A little bit. I collect them. I'm usually when I get my my box the month, or whatever, I I wait, usually two or three months, I q them up, and then I'll open them and on bagging, boredom. Yeah. With the intention that alco back and read them, sure. Most of the time that doesn't happen. And I ended up and up usually just buying the trade paperbacks and reading so I double by them a lot of times. But I can't seem to give it up because you get a huge discount on comics. When you when you subscribe to you do so they're like way cheaper cover prices on comics are expensive, man. Yes. So I was looking on comics allergy today. And I'm I'm still glad I have that unlimited. You do get a discount. You could totally get it. Just twenty two percent discount or something like that. So anyway, so anyway, cleaning up a room and in the corner, I have a stack of. The boxes of comics that I have net for some reason. I must have been busy in the spring of the fall, and I was just getting them. And I was just throwing him somewhere. They got tucked away, and we're back in every even get open. So I figured we'd do a little segment I like to call what's in the box. What's the box? And we're going to see what's in the box. So I brought one box today. We're going to open it up live on air. Here the box already opened actually. Yeah here, but I have not looked inside. All right. So how many issues are in a box. Usually it depends on your subscription old. These are okay. Could thirty could be too. He's these spock's could be from years ago or it could be from last month. I don't know these were tucked away in a hidden corner. Okay. That hasn't been touched in my house for years. That's exciting. So I'm guessing these might be kinda old. So what's in the box? Jerry. I don't know. I one we got here. These are from. Let's see if we can find a date here. Okay. What is this, Jerry? Doctor who doctor who that's a special one because it's got like five doctors on the France is actually a free comic book day comic. So I must very nice, let's came free. Now, I do and did subscribe Mississippi from two thousand and sixteen thousand six three year old box three year old box. We got here.

I haven't been collecting it now for a couple of years well about three thank three. So I did cancel my subscription. Dr. Who at some point? Yeah. I don't know why I was I I've done some major purges. That's good over the years. What we got here. Jerry. I don't know. Let's see though Walking Dead the Walking Dead issue. One fifty four led to slaughter and they're probably on issues like two seventy nine. I'm not sure there's two in here years you what do we got here? Jerry. The amazing Spiderman. Dance lot.

Spiderman teams up with the all new all different vendors for the first time. That was the snare gene is back spectacular. Stark question. Mark. Who to have to check that one out. No, you're thinking of the superior spider Maria. It was a Dan slot. It was he he's written so much the Spiderman by the way is like one of the only comics, and I don't know if it still is. But it was by monthly. So it come to issues a month. Oh, let's Batman has like nine. So now here I'm just talking of the straight up amazing Spiderman there was two issues a month. Oh, here's one that. I no longer collect Jerry. But I was for a while just because I loved the art. Easy comics, bomb shells, bomb shells. I never read any of that. That got really good reviews. Yeah. I know people like that a lot of bent it. This was a book, I think it's still running. But it was basically all DC female superhero book who who wrote that this one's Bennett. But I don't know who has been on. I always collected this because the art is amazing. They kind of went up is very went for that pinup style art art style on bombshells book, which I thought was super cool. Here's one that. You'll enjoy. Batman. Oh at that. Batman cover.

This is one I would pay for it number nine. This is the eleventh doctor adventures year to Matt Smith cancelled the C to he's not going to be there, Jerry, I got so many more. I don't know if you guys are interested in this. But I'm going to keep going keep going. This is this is going to give you guys a little insight on the amount of books. Chris gets monthly DC bombshells number thirteen letter. So that's to a month for that one. I guess I don't know Star Wars number nineteen. Cool cover. It was collecting that for awhile, and then stopped it. And here you go the Charles soul Charl daredevil number seven. So this must be two months worth account books. It has to because I got another head pull here number twelve. Why would they send you two months in one month? Sometimes they do that. I don't know why. I don't know why they do that either. Because you buy monthly. I don't know what's going on with this month. I another DC bombshells. Was this was this open before you brought it here. Yes. So you probably just stash some books in this kind of. DC the enemy laughs when you loaf. DC bombshells with a Harley Quinn on the front one fifty five Walking Dead. Oh, another Walking Dead. That's a good cover that is cool Kover. Yep. Here we got civil war number two issue as you want. Oh issue one. What is that the same one yard ahead out that was issues zero? Oh, okay.

Chris is a four issue crossover in one Pat look off thickness book, it is huge. It's gotta be a hundred English issue. It's a deluxe. And we got old man. Logan, number seven. So it has a good one definitely too. I do have all of those. That's it. That's what's in the box, Jerry. Wow. That's incredible. Those so have you read all those old men? Logan's. Nope. Oh my gosh. Chris I don't know what's wrong with me you need to learn. How to read I gotta get back. And these are two thousand sixteen books come on. Chris. What are you come on Christopher? So these will be other things you need to do. He's will be bagged and boarded. But I think this is the thing we need to get back into his reading comics, even if it's just like one you can read one comic in a week. Right. I mean, definitely. Yeah. Because I read because it takes like ten minutes. I read like eight books today. Yeah. It's a hard. So. It's so fun because I haven't done it in a while and get on these you do to obviously in everybody. Does you get on these sprees where you just don't wanna read anymore? It's like kind of work. It's easy to go home and just sit on the couch and let the TV tell you things, you know, to physically read something takes a little bit of mental energy and awareness. You know, you can't fall asleep to reading right. Even though I do I do that. I literally will fall asleep reading a book, but like a novel. I will do that to comic books are different because you're. You're reading words, but you're also like reading the art, you know, what I mean like you're looking at the picture and putting the story together in your head. So it's a little more interactive. I feel like to your brain. And I really love it. And today it like hit me like I need to need to get back into this. Where did you do all this reading today? Oh at work because I got a lot of my like the main work ahead to do. I did it right in the beginning. Right right early in the beginning of work, and it was raining a lot, and there was not much to do outside because it was raining. It wasn't going to stand out in the rain. I didn't make anybody else. So I did that. Let's keep that on the download maybe don't put that out into the universe. Right. And anybody that works with me? Don't listen to this episode? Yeah. I don't care comic books for everyone. And I think everyone I won't yell at anybody at work. If you're reading comic book. Fair enough. How about that sounds like plan? Yeah. So. Anyway. Yeah, I get into these tangents where I don't read for a long time. And then all of a sudden, I see because there are so many books that come out every week like hundreds and hundreds of books out every week so difficult it's so hard to keep up with all this stuff. And when I when I see books like this where you have old man Logan, just sitting there never read never looked at never opened crisp it. Larry hurts my soul that you haven't looked at that money. Does Eminem's spend on chemical advertising because they're in the back cover of every comic? Yeah. Ooh. Speaking of covers so Justice league, the sky at night or in this old man, log it is incredible. Isn't it incredible? Yeah. Amazing. So Scott Snyder has a run of Justice league. And in issue came out where they have three different covers. But it's it ties together. So the same issue has three different covers that they put out. It's not like variant covers it's the it's this issue. But you like almost have to buy all three issues to put the covers together to make one big scene. Oh, that's cool. It is really neat. Scott Snyder, put it up on Twitter. Good old comic book. Gimmick. Covers. Isn't that? Awesome. I think it's awesome. It's just make you got to buy all three exactly. And there was a guy that posted a picture of it. And he's like, are you really even a comic book lover if you don't buy all three issues, and he's right? You should probably if you're going to do it. 'cause like today like those I was looking at the Lazarus books. I already have all of them. But I was looking at some of them what they cost a dollar twenty nine write a book twenty nine zero you love Lazarus, right? You got them digit. Do you have any of the book trades? I do have I have single issues up to like fifteen or it's double digit that I have single issue. But I ended up see don't you like meat. You must not be like me when I find like a run a comic book, love them. I like half to own the single issues. Like, yeah. I don't know. How long I've been trying to collect saga of swamp thing. So hard oh heart to do. Yeah. That's that's a lot of books and it expensive books, right? Some are expensive at all. But no, but then tire run are pretty pricey just because. But like, you know, like the dead shot for series four book miniseries from the nineties. I had to have that you know, there's this a lot like a lot of daredevil. Unfortunately to me the the miniseries and the shorter runs. Our are books that I want to have single issue. But like the the long like the Batman the Tom king Batman run that is on issue number sixty seven. I don't know. Like, do I wanna buy sixty seven individual issues, and then by the volley the trade paperbacks to and no new. But like would you go back and by the court of owls, Ron I wish you well. You know what I mean? I would do that. I hear exactly I have all I do. I that is a have all of them up to when they started. I can't remember what it was called when they started with. Commissioner Gordon ended up being. Or something in that like metal suit. And that's when I I had that issue, and I was like don't want this anymore, and I stopped it right away. And that's fine. But I do have every issue of court of all city vowels death of the family. Well, I'll say I don't collect nearly this much anymore. I think now mostly I'm getting I always get daredevil and deadpool so you are in. So then you probably arguing that daredevil. No for sure. Yeah. It's the the covers of those actually it was just I don't know where daredevil is now in numbering one. Okay. I just bought bagged and boarded that the other day the one let me pull up the no it is that when you posted on. Yeah. I just bag that either. Yeah. It started over again with chips at our ski at number one. And like to actually I was gonna post it when I was doing it to Instagram, and I to like I said number three comes up next week. Yeah. So and I'll probably post something about that. But it's kinda cool that I went back and following these because my big problem right now with my comics is they're not in alphabetical order. So I need to go through and do that. Because generally a box gets full. And then I started new box and then stuff gets all discombobulated. So if you get this thing if you get these sorted out. We're we could potentially be people that go to these cons with long boxes and try to sell things and have these huge boards. Put up a volume comics, boxes and stuff. You don't. You. Don't realize how many freaking Cowan cooks fitting along box author so many that can fit in like those giant ones. So I probably have like. Six long boxes. I have a lot of comics. And it really puts it in perspective. When you see these guys at these shows have hundred of them. Yeah. One hundred long boxes and a big stand behind him of the collectible real collectible ones. What are we going to buy? What are we search out? What's our what's our goal here? One hundred percent. I'm getting the the swamp things there will be so much more this show. I know last one. So the swamp thing number seven with Batman on the cover the first Batman. Yes. That one it's going to be if we can find. Yeah. If we find it. I'm just saying don't let me not buy it. Yeah. What was the last one? You didn't buy that one that one that that book and it's haunted me ever since. And I've seen it. I've looked at it on EBay like thirty seven times. And I never bought it. Because I knew we were going to see too easy to. And I was like I'm gonna buy it at a con-, it might cost me more money. But I just buy it right here. I nine dollars and sixty cents USD. Yeah. But probably bad quality. That's what I was going to say is that near near mint, very fine near mint. Because I'm going to get it. I'm going to get both of those. Well, you got to keep in mind. It's worth about thirty bucks to have it be graded or no, I don't I'm not. I'm not collecting that to be got about grading. I need to get all my dare-devils graded. You're going to bring him. I think so because they'll be there. You know? I know I gotta look that up. I feel like at this point. Now, I haven't got my ducks in a row for that. So maybe I'll just wait till wizard. You got all day tomorrow. Yeah. I'm really busy tomorrow. Snow just ignore all obligation. This is your life. Chris probably going to have to close your businesses. Well. So we're going to wrap up here pretty quick. But before we do we're going to talk about the under two hours, Jerry. Yeah. We're gonna talk about real quick. What we're doing next episode? We're gonna oh, yeah, we're going to promote this. Price had done this to beginning. Not yet. It's fine. The way you guys stick around for the whole two hours. I know everyone does. It will also get a post on social media this what we're doing too because I want you guys to follow along. I want you guys to also do your brackets. So we're going to have a little bit of March madness. It is going to be like a March madness bracket that Chris found actually my niece Maggie sent it to me. Really? Yeah. Thanks, Maggie and her and her husband were doing it. And they said to me in there like you need to do this on the podcast. And I agree. Yes. One hundred percent agree. So do you want to explain what it is? Yes. So we're doing a March madness bracket, but it is an I need to pull it up here. It is. Basically a bracket for science fiction. Yes. Like fi slash comic slash or it says it says fantasy slash science fiction movies. Is that what it is? Yeah. So it is a bracket and let me just pull it up. Exactly. There's it's just like some March madness bracket. Yeah. It's just like March madness. The best SCI fi fantasy film the last ten years. That's that's a sticking point Oakland, ten years only. It's already pre filled out. Yup. In they're gonna do. All you gotta do is make your choices. And they're ranked within each other. It's almost like conferences didn't notice that. There's like a there's there's a top left top, right? Bottom left bottom. Right. And they're ranked through fifteen in each one. So there's always sings Elise total. Yep. And basically go through and just do your matchups in you'll end up with your final four you final to the championship. So I think what we're going to do is to episode of thing. Thing where will rank everybody and probably get to what like a semi-final and then the second Sweet Sixteen. Yeah. And then the second episode or the next episode after that we'll do. Each bracket as an episode because it'll just be a segment. Yeah. It'll be a segment, I guess. Yeah. Okay. And we'll do ours individually. Right. Or is it going to be we'll do them individually because I don't see how we could do that together because we're going to keep in mind this maybe as a couple years old because there's stuff that's not in here. Yeah. Like Infinity wars not in here. Yeah. That's fine. But whatever so take it with a grain of salt, and we're also going to take with their assumptions on their rankings. Some of them are dumb. And you've got to understand to what might be the best movie might be in a bracket. That's against something else. You know? So. Yeah. It isn't going to necessarily be like the best movie is what we all expected it to be. No because it's it's set up like a March madness bracket so stuff can get eliminated early right competition. Man. I was looking at some of these, and it really bugged the crap out of me that they have to go against each other. Yeah. But it is what it is. This is the way the brackets setup. And this is the way we're going to rank it. So you people are going to we're going to put it out there. You're gonna fill out your bracket and send it to us. Yeah. How do you win? Like March madness bracket, you win today have to match our brackets or. I mean, well, we're the official you win by getting it. Right. We don't have what's right though. Exactly. We don't have. What's right? So I don't know. I guess whoever gets closest to us. We're doing two different brackets. Well, mine will probably be better. Well that because I'm just more definitive on things. I think ours will be similar. I think they will too man. I'm excited to do this. I wish we would have done. I I know I'm really excited to do it as well because I'm really interested to see as to how I who. I have come out on top. It'll be really neat to see. Because it'll it'll probably go against I bet you it'll go against how we ranked these movies in our top twenty definitely marvel movies and movies of all time. Like, no doubt. It'll be crazy to see. Maybe this will be the definitive best movie. If we both have it. I think we'll have the same movie you think we'll have the same one as the champion. I'm one hundred percent. Sure. Oh my gosh. Yeah. One hundred percent. Okay. It's on record. Yeah. That's this is on record of you say, we'll figure out the scoring system. We'll probably do like one point for the early match ups. And then we'll do like more. I'll have to go back and look exactly how they do that with March madness brackets. Okay. And we'll know March madness is like if you pick the right team that won you get you get points for that. There's no way we can do that. But that's how they do March madness brackets, you get points at every level for an you calculate like total point score. Well, I know, but if you are if you lose that that bracket like if you don't pick the winner, you don't get points would if there's five people with the same winner. They gotta differentiate somehow who won. It all goes, nobody has the same bracket. So at some point someone's not gonna have the same winner. Okay. You know what I mean? Like in basketball, there is only one winner of the game. Yeah. Not everybody picks the same winner all the time. Yeah. But if you're in a league for brackets and a bunch of people pick the same winner. It comes down to whoever wins the championship. But say five people pick the same championship winner. How do you differentiate between those five people because of who they picked before that. That's what I mean. They gotta be points tributed before that. Then if you just move up the next level. No, not everybody picks all of the same winners all the time. So obviously someone's going to get more points by picking more of the right winners. So you get one point per winner. I guess, but we can't do that. Because. I mean, there's no right winner. Well, we'll just do two winners Chris Winner and a Jerry winner. Okay. Like whoever closest to Jerry's bracket and whoever picks closest to my bracket will be big winners the win at t-shirt. Yeah. All right, and some stickers, of course, Hemion anymore. You gotta have stickers. Maybe a water bottle. I don't know. We'll figure it out. We'll get you something this is there's real stakes here guys. But all you gotta do is fill up. It's not hard to fill out this bracket, we need one hundred percent listener participation. Yeah. That's just minimum. And we have over two thousand listeners roughly give or take two thousand. So that means two thousand practice you go through that would be ridiculous. We'd have to have a whole team. So yeah, look look for that. We're going to post it, and it'll be up this week. Yeah. So I'm done if you're done. I'm. Good to go. All right. That was episode sixteen. Chris our thanks guys. We'll see you next week.

ESPN started getting it started. Getting real goes to the rugby style with the numbers under the rugby was thing yeah had a whole whole bunch of those that brand that rugby brand destroyed for about four years and then went right off yeah so we don't want to talk about because I want. There's a bunch of things but like I would like you to to tell me because you've told me but I wanted to tell everybody else where you're from like really the real the full story so into the microphone on an airplane but we do radio of course my apologies sir. I'm so sorry please raise your seat. That's uh-huh get yelled at on the plane. I was born in Bosnia and one thousand nine hundred six so live. They're born in Sarajevo. So most people are familiar with Syria was the capital city of Bosnia so live there until the early ninety s until about ninety one ninety two and then a solo war broke out so that's the kind of Yugoslavia breaking up so there was war in Croatia warrants Lavinia were Bosnia and then after that we kind of hit for a while our record and then started bouncing around the country and then we got out of the country and got to Montenegro which is kind of the coastal area Serbia and then while we were there we got into a program with an organization called IOM International Organization for Migration so it's a refugee organization basically if you're in danger you can apply and then go through like usually anywhere from a few months to a few years to get approved so my parents went through the program and hadn't just a little over two years from when they started the program until we got approved and then what was the level of danger like when they were like described the threat. What did you guys would it. You basically had to describe that. You know like you've lost your home like you know the area where your home is is taken by somebody that you know. WPRO wants to do you harm and then saw like you have to you guys literally ojected from your home or was the building bombed or like it was it was so there's a lot of stuff that happened but basically they're you know like three main sides during the war and there was a side like surf side cried sad. Croat nightside and Bosniak side and each of the sides kind of pushed an area so wherever one side was strongest it would push forward and try to take more land is a power our struggle almost yeah so I mean you know this is a whole big complex topic but the initial like we saw today out Kushner on the phone like the big thing because that's a big thing was all these republics wanted independence and and then there were people in the republic that didn't WanNa be independent people that they want to be independent and then people that felt loyal to one side of the country people have felt loyalty the other side of the country's everybody fought for what their idea was and like in their little area and that was the thing is there was three groups and a certain parts of the country's two groups will be fighting against each other but in other parts of the country there will be aligned against the third group like it was like like everybody just listening to propaganda from the politicians and just fighting for what they can and that's like the wild thing. Is You know where I am. In North Carolina. We have all three of the ethnic groups that fought against each other in the war and everybody hangs out. Everybody's friends that's lasy after the war ended either like you know we're like first generation emigrants most almost had exposure to it but after and they're like you know. This doesn't make sense like you know. It doesn't apply over here. Yeah like we speak the same language. You know we you know we we look the same react the same. We eat the same type of food like why would we argue. That's right here in the same thing about Israelis and Palestinians individual. I think it's it's a very similar thing but that's what's interesting. Is that even outside of that Conflict Area A lot of times. They don't get along because there's so much politics behind you and I mean there's some of that here too and like our whole area is very very complex so it Yugoslavia's communist so you have this generation of people that all they know is communism so like even now like all day think about is communism was good because all this bad should happen for communism is amended because everybody want their republic. Everybody wanted democracy and then that's the thing too is like everything over. There has been stable since like the early two thousands and but the economy's still kinda crappy because a lot of people still do business in the communist way where I want business to go pay off this state official or go here. I pay this guy off center. Yeah and you know and then a lot of is just you know bad decisions and rebuilding after a war yeah all right so you get into this program you come to America when you were how old was so. I was eight. My brother were six. My parents were like in their mid thirties. Okay so basically we had we had to get sponsorship so you don just come to America like you'll get approved for the program and then the refugee organization in has to look for somebody to give you a loan so like you have to pay for your plane tickets and all this stuff. It's not just show up so they found a church where your parents like decently decently well off over there before the war yeah so like they were an attorney in an accountant so yeah you know the you know fairly fairly fairly decent jobs but once the worst lease pay jobs bosniaks salesman killing it there but I mean we were reasonably well off off. They were building a new home when the war started you know knows you know we we lived pretty well before all that but once the war started the bank collapse unlike anything he didn't have in your hands. You didn't just fucking gone yeah so basically all the all the cash that you had on you which when we came up you know came to America was maybe three or four hundred dollars that was that's what we so you know but basically this church sponsored us so like when they got to the end of the program they found a few different nonprofit organizations churches and local like NGO type places that would offer my needs to give you a loan to help you get started so it was like a place. North Dakota this church in North Carolina and they looked at a some books and they're like yeah. There's nobody in North Dakota and like my dad had some family that had gone through the program that chose North Carolina to sorta like we're going to go there yeah housing to say how did all these like these like refugees in that area you said even from all sides of the war ended up in North Carolina how that is that intentional while part of it is organizations imitations nonprofit organizations that are giving out these loans and sometimes they're giving out grants where they're paying for a portion of it wherever they were that's where the refugees are and then once the refugees fugees got there so like once we got here you know my parents worked like real crap jobs like the first job they worked here was like building cabinet kitchen cabinets like building doors for like four seventy five an hour and they've never done shit like that before and I like my dad you know like he worked on cars and stuff because he liked cars for fun and he did like random jobs like when he was a teenager. You know he'd like construction. Okay all right not since they had finished college yeah so basically all these people come come here and once they're kind of stable so my parents started with these real crap jobs and then once they start to learn English work their way up a little bit and then got better jobs so now they got ten dollar an hour jobs then a couple more years fifteen hundred dollar jobs and then they both decided to go back to college and their early forties because the what's it like if you can speak to this like they are when they're when they're back in Bosnia. They're highly educated people with you know way collar job. What are we going to call for their educated people then you have to come here and almost start over until they learn the language you save up money to go either. Get educated is is time in getting educated. They are the whole time they like God. This is annoying back home. We were this hour this or is it. This is amazing. Keep your head up likely we're very fortunate. That's that's the thing is like when we were kids like even though like like me and my brother in law. I've talked about this recently. We just sat down and talked about like you know like sometimes we spend on dinner what they made combined in a week. When we first got to the country you were just talking about trying to like just make sense of that by like when we got here like so you know. We thought that we're they're just kids in the world because like you know my dad worked two or three jobs my mom usually work to and then they kind of rebel to get down to one job so they both worked multiple jobs. They rarely saw each other but whenever they were with us and they're like everything is awesome yeah. We're not getting shot at like you know this. This is good. God like we had toys. We had you know candy. Whatever like every other kid had we had like you know basically like they most of what they earned went to you know me and my brother Yeah. You had a great twitter thread like I don't know months ago. It's like a series of the kind of like crappy at interesting ours your they do the list what car they 'cause. This is allegedly. This is a car show for nothing. It's not like it's not the all refugees but when you told me like g these stories all my God wait not just the interesting thing twitter like You're the only refugee I know so. There's good brothers. Yeah sorry boy on. I know you're fucking out. They're not trying to discount you but you're not in that chair yeah so have time to bring dude if he was coming to town. I'm fully I'm sure I'm sure he'll be around his. She just Kinda chilling right now doing a few few different gigs so he'll sure he'll come through here at some point. Wait so give us a big big list of your parents crappy cars so one we got here. The first card they had wasn't actually their car. They was like somebody like in the neighborhood. Just let him borrow a car and there was some like Buick from the mid eighty s like from Dr Look Connell Box Buick Skylark Skylark. That's it that's it and and had like seven or eight different like colors of panels because they're just like a salvage. Carlos quit together as like for people in the neighborhood to use this was the neighborhood share car body body body but it was for everybody because like when we got here because of the jobs they worked. We live in the projects so like you know that's just how stuff goes there you know like that and had after that they saved up money and got a plymouth acclaim yeah so that was it was it was really terrible. It was it was purple. Well Purple Plymouth Acclaim like a ninety one or ninety two flat the flat window so man whatever happened to that era of they just all crumpled like they're just dust now. You know what I kind of. D L liked was the Cougar Cougar with the flat wasn't bad like yeah. It is bad I mean it had decent stuff underneath it. You know you're always thought like a like an outcast yeah cool. There's a skylark skylark. I've seen doesn't I was I was. I was a pebble in the historic last month. They're awesome saw those are like the GTO GTO cars. We literally talked about this on twitter. Today is that something has the right at the right time of race parts suddenly suddenly good-looking yeah. It looked bad ass. I mean look at it. Is there anything you put vendors off in fairness sidewall us good what's great about the Lebaron in in a NASCAR is that you're allowed to make the pop up lights close a couple of rectangles. The only girl yes looks custodian. I dated a girl that drove Lebaron high school and what a hunk of Shit. I've heard I think I've only driven a Lebron for like ten feet arable. Does that was it. I've never ever like and that was enough. The weirdest thing about a Lebaron is at the blinker is on the gauge pinnacle not the steering column. That's where it's very it make any sense at all. I wonder why that is because they had to be like in. Whatever after the Plymouth typically so plymouth acclaim that got sold and they a dodge caravan so like we had a progression of Van so the first one on no actually sorry the first one was a nineteen eighty eight or eighty nine plymouth voyager so like they started a very basic like this one didn't have like the tinted rear glass like this is is like the very basic one because that's all they could afford the time right yeah exactly exactly that they had that and then that one got traded for a like a ninety one or ninety two Dodge Caravan so the Dodge Caravan had the factory tint on the rear had the captain's chair in the second row yeah and I mean this was still like six or seven year old car with like eight hundred ninety thousand miles but also like shares are forever. They invented the minivan so the the best right yeah. It was a used car by like I remember that like those cars specifically because this is like we're like eleven twelve. I'm I'm eleven twelve and boyens like eight or nine. Yeah I like we had the advanced went everywhere like this was like now road trip now get road trips adventures and stuff so like like like my parents. They got like they they got us a low mattress that would fit in the back they took out the seed sound like we went to Canada like chilling in back. Yeah had a mattress back. There had a bed and like drove all the way up to like Ottawa because they had some friends up there so I trust like that. That was you know like really really memorable where you know it was just a crappy old van but as a cool van because we did so after that they got a Pontiac Bonneville one thousand nine hundred nine Pontiac Bonneville it was it was light blue in color. Those were actually kind of cool. There were decent like so they had they had the T v three point eight Liter v six which is still one of my favorite engines to this they. I can't kill it like I mean other than some of them. They had the intake intake manifold gasket which is fairly easily fixable like it's not like the the end all for the engine didn't have like RX7 race car. Something bad guys ten knows that one that the fabricator in I'm blanking on his name right now but yeah ten men he owns that Black Betty you saw like Jack Mark Sam Mental. They all race that for a while the F. C. apparently thirty eight hundred. Oh that's got to be quick yeah I mean thirty eight hundred if you open it up a little bit it'll make like two hundred and fifty pound feet of torque which an NFC RX7 yet is what do they use it in the supercharge charge pontiacs yes they did that three point eight liter started as a buick engine in the sixties so like in the sixties they used it and then like basically could just built up on over time then it got spread through Chevy and Pontiac and all these other ones and they used all the way up until like two thousand eight or two thousand nine so like the last of the Grand Pres. Oh Oh yeah generation four. I think it is three point eight thirty eight hundred supercharged. I think they got him up to close to three hundred horsepower by its run yeah but that engine was modified to fight in various configurations. There was a version of it like cart racing Chevrolet Buick thirty eight hundred racing version those six hundred horsepower something that was ridiculous what what defines when a car engine has been used for that long that it's still being quote continued and not considered just just a new engine that has the same displacement as the original like you know. They say it has the same architecture designing. I'm wondering like he's like a house where if you rip it down but You keep the fireplace on one no I get what you're saying and a whole lot of it is just marketing so a whole lot of this is what the manufacturer says it's when they say words like all new all new or I ever all this other stuff and it's it's also high get paid often because they say all new and then I go back and find out that it's not all new and somebody obeys me to write about him so it works for me sometimes but I mean for me like from a personal standpoint of how like I view it is if there are parts that interchange interchange with whatever the previous generation is our previous version is that I consider it a continuation okay so like the engines. That's one of my favorite entrance to work with. I love swap aren't working on them so like they're basically small block chevy so Chevy's been making small block since the sixties but like the original small blocks you can't take a crank or a you know a rod or a wristband or an intake from one and put it on an ls or or not like the new version of the Lt Yeah and the same thing with the ls so you have two generations of generation three generation four which is like generation threes from ninety nine to two thousand five generation force from like oh six to 2016 and they have slightly different cranks but most of the other parts interchange continuation unlike the LTN's that you see in the corvette and the Camaro now our whole new like whole new generation because none of the parts really inner change even though they're very very similar like in the shape and parts and displacements exactly the same so just you you know if parts can interchange. I consider a continuation yeah yeah. I would agree with that by that. Measure the Aston Aston v Twelve a sickly of Ford Mondeo nineteen yeah I mean you can you can pull pull parts motor and they'll fit in a door attack or whatever it is the same like rods and Pistons and shit find a tourist shop and be like how much do you charge for camps and pastor Martin together. 'cause you know that's that's kind of what it is but I mean that's literally how they started with that end. Of course I mean there was fine tuning but yeah. That's basically what what it is. We were talking to the last show about that. Ford Indigo concept from ninety six. Yes I engine became. That's exactly that ah like very aggressive front end yeah. I don't yeah that's that's that's a wing was a GT three R s wing that really look like it was mounted backwards very interesting like no you're exactly the fling is very it's highly highly swinging aw that's like a gd three or s right wing in revert pretty much like you know what I was thinking of. Is The Plymouth prowler thing I can think going trying to think of this kind of because you just ruined it for me. Oh No it very similar. This is better looking. Just it fills in the gaps in the rear fender just imagined that is you know they were able to get a twelve in this yeah. The prowler had a V6 diploma permits with the Plymouth prowler out even remember how old I was. I think was high school. Two thousand seventeen ninety six came out and he's always like upset set really like what me to remember the first year like a few different like tuner shops tried and tried to swap a motor emerson. Don't put just like a two hundred shops not mess with all this fabrication two hundred shot at it good enough room up there for more and these bumpers look plastic. They look they look like it came out of a brutal so bad. I can't read that twenty three yeah. I mean I mean if you want to like. I mean is it. Is it possible to fit because when this came out I don't know if anyone ls can you get an ls in there. You think you could potentially get another lesson there but it's still a big have pain in the ass is because the subprime is narrow suspension starts so close to the engine so like you'd have to. You'd have to like a dry sump. LS and like doc wait like you. You still couldn't balance the weight very wall. Like what is there anything you can do. Is anyone ever done anything successfully one of those. I mean they've they've put some Yahweh. The has hemi sticking out the sides Hugh Hewitt. It's much wider than the L. S. but people have done emmys because you know Plymouth Hemi right. It makes I sense. What else are you GONNA fly now. There's so much room in front of the engine suspension but yeah I mean maybe if you made a v shaped radiator I mean you can you can move yeah. You can see that it's narrow so the like if you got like a to Jay z yeah it would be perfect because it's narrow along and like something that you could fit in Jing paging aging kooning most people that own prowlers like have a little prowler matching trailer Polish them up and do all that shit like they're not like I wi. IRA like there was like like maybe four people in like ninety seven the one to do swabs and everybody was just everybody else. They just have a club in the you know. Go the go-to the diner and hang out there on the proud like toy all yeah yeah. It's Kinda Nice though when a collection of people just decides I just to appreciate something for what it is not try to make it into something else kind of relieving a little bit. I mean you know everybody likes different things and if if that's what you like and you want to hang out and Polish the car you know everybody's got different. Offense is on a different type of enthusiasm like you know I'm completely different than that like. I like to use things so yeah. Just just tear into it. And when did you start working on cars. Probably when I was twelve so that kind of goes back to the original story maybe eleven seven or twelve so Dad he worked at the factory he went to work at a factory made tubes for paper. Towels House like the cardboard in the middle of paper towel so you went there so I was like you know a jump from there and he was tired of that because it just like really crappy conditions nations and so he worked there during the day and went to mechanic school at night oh so like when he was younger he liked messing around with cars just doing basic stuff and and he's like you know thirteen dollars an hour here. I can make sixty dollars an hour as a mechanic and with flat rate once I get better stuff. I can stack up a whole bunch of hours so you went to mechanic school. This was in nineteen ninety eight so I was twelve and he got his ASC certifications. I I mean he went for like a year. Basically every single class that you could take just so you could get all these allegations. They could get a job so he got a job at a Mitsubishi dealer. So that's how like there's like nick. I've had like Montero's like and you start with Diamante. Yeah Yeah I've had four diamantes boy had like the the most people don't have won the we've had weird to have even one among the three thousand did he have a meeting with the other texts bosses like we're going to be a busy. We're all buying. That's that's kind of where my automotive enthusiasm started so like even as a twelve thirteen year old because you know he was doing this stuff. He was working at the dealership but he was also fixing cars on the side like at the house like go work at the dealership fifty sixty hours a week and then on the weekends people will bring like from the neighborhood bring their cars to our house and he'd fixed them there so I mean yeah I mean I mean that's like where like you know like both me and boy on just like have like all kinds of gigs going all the time and just working and just you know have baseball kinds of different hustle is as we've picked that up from him my mom yeah because that's what they did like an are like formative years when we were young is they hustled time work three four jobs so he would work on these cars and basically hold the flashlight hand them tools and stuff like that you know when we were twelve thirteen. Whatever and that's kind of where we picked up what you know tools go where where things go you know wherever and you know he noticed that we liked it so like when I was fifteen I went and got my license. In the Bonneville the Bonneville they bought two Bonneville with like eight thousand miles by the time they they had it by the time I turned fifteen and a half when I finish driver said at that time it had to seventy six you know use use while the car got my license in it was like an extra car they cast because it wasn't worth yeah so I got my license. The Bonneville and my dad worked at that time so he whenever people like just like real crappy cars like where people would like come get an estimate for something and it'll be like three thousand dollar estimate and the car's worth like twelve hundred like he would be like if you don't want to fix it. I'll get I'll give you five hundred dollars for it. Yeah yeah so that's like the first day I'm on ninety two diamante and those are three liter and some of the three point five Liter v Six's the Mitsubishi us in the late eighties early nineties early two thousands they had issues with valve stem seals so like dot covers had come off so had had come off all the stuff and like the the valve stem seals weren't expensive themselves like two bucks a piece you know so there was the anti there was just like blowing all through the exhaust because of ouston leaks valve stem. MHM seals are leaking so that for like five hundred dollars brought to the house up. He's like if you can fix this. There's your car right. There was a decent diamant. I guess this is two thousand two thousand one. It was like a ninety two year old. You know Mitsubishi that you know it was a ninety two two four they got heinous looking pearl white ninety two of the LS exactly like that for years so much shape with the Lincoln LS it's crazy by Pearl White Ninety two so he brought out real ugly laid off yeah good one off yeah yeah. These are like pretty decent like it was it was like a really really nice car for a high schooler because all my friends had like Roddy civics and all this other stuff and I- luxury luxury vehicles and like yeah like I had like you know leather seats. I had a V six with like two hundred and thirty horsepower. They're all rolling like eighty nine civics with like you know eighty eighty horsepower whatever and auxiliary input. Oh Shit yeah so this car yeah I was like yeah this was a ninety two yeah it came with the OEM radio with an auxiliary input in Nineteen ninety-two. That's pretty awesome other car in that era that I've known I've seen with their okay but what had I don't. I don't know if it goes to nine to but my mom's ninety six mercury villager had really had an ox input not only to have oxygen put it had rear headphone entertainment with independent controls which was pretty gangsters for ninety-six Nautica edition that uh-huh now if I see one I'll follow it down the street sit diamante had cable because instead of Mitsubishi paying the cost of CD players. They were like what do you have for twelve cents and put it in. I genuinely like such a weird you'd completely audit and I've never really liked that dug deep into it. I owned Diamante and another. Mit I was like like ninety ninety four three thousand. GT The basically had the same head unit. You have the same ox-like input. It was always weird but for me it was awesome because I had CD's at that time so I can take my CD player. Your your district yeah this man and get that you know like three point five millimeter thirty five millimeter plug. Wayne's world get the CD player. We got at the money that had like the ten second. anti-scale not only had ten seconds thirty seconds. That's s you know it was like ESPN infinite yeah counting the hours but I mean that's kind of how I started into cars ars. I like my that's fix it up but he did most of the work on that we just. I just basically like he's like well. Do this here do that here. Do this here but that kind oh. No you know it was going to be your car. You weren't GonNa fail but things yeah. That's exactly what did that turn into like putting. LS engines into a wrx and stuff like that so you did what a legacy but the same same same suffering continue the I'm trying to think now so I I got cars and so fast and furious had come out and it was like two fast two years or something something so I had the diamante. He brought another diamante home. We sold the I want to fix the second one. I drove that and I was like I can't do anything for this like I can't modify this because you you know that time like in my mind is like I need to get a cold air intake or do something like that sound cool. Put an exhaust on like I can't do anything had a legacy. GTE Time same then. You just go all right well so I was like I'm going to sell this the Monterey and I'm a by Mirage the Meraj do they have parts of the Mirage. Yeah there are some parts that I like in Europe and Japan. They had the evil in that body style so you could get like bumpers Burzan stuff so this is like a nine hundred ninety seven mirage the so like you know. I it looked like the one I drove in New Zealand that the guy turned into an evoke vote. Yvo Front and rear clips. Put them on a mirage cab. You can do it. it's not terribly hard caused some decent money to get those clips but it all fits well. It was on an ego chassis that was shit but mine was looked like an evil but had a one point five liter with ninety two horsepower this this like that yeah. It was Kinda Kinda. Yvo I traded. I traded that from bumper. I can't remember for what like I I like a bartered up so like I had some like subs I bought from a guy for like fifty bucks and then I created that for some wheels that worth like two hundred bucks basically bartering my way up to evil from bumper nice yeah so put that he will from bumper on and like then come with fogs so I went to like the trailer store found like lights the match the whole in the bumper a got like trailer lights that were in the whole but it looked like it should fit and this is you. This is very similar to that silver but it was very very similar to that one fiberglass from bumper but now is like my on my own work in our cars so I enjoyed. I enjoyed like you know being able to do that. Then I found an intake and like I think I started like fabricating stuff and say fabricating with like what Mark because like we were are using like. PVC pipe like a cold air intake so like seventeen year old is trying to like experiment so after a while we figured out the we were doing all this dumb shit like where we could do something cool so I actually had a legacy so like I had a bunch of other Mitsubishi Montero Sport which it's actually pretty fun like went off roading and all kinds of stuff. I had I Suzuki. I can't remember now. It's not a site kick butts the slightly bigger than Tamara Laura. Yeah something like that was the square one maybe tracker but it was a squirrel like from the late nineties but yes. I have a couple of like not as well but maybe maybe it was a sidekick okay so I had that and then I bought two thousand Subaru Legacy. Gt so this is like when they were non turbo a two point five two point five one hundred seventy horsepower or something like that yeah. I had that one too yeah ninety eight nice slow not model. I've not found out very quickly like it was a cool car. It was a decent price but you can't do much with it so like I actually start start doing some research and figured out that they had to be foreign Japan so I started going through part numbers and figured out like what's the fit on these clovers that fit at found all these other other parts. I'd like all these like lists of part numbers of things that could fit so every every now and then I would search for these part numbers to see if like anybody in the US show them so like I don't know I had the car for six or seven months and I was searching these numbers and one of the coil over part numbers popped up at a team like T I n that makes call over the green logo. Yeah there are some in a warehouse here on the West Coast and Venetia okay so I called them and I was like Kay is like a set of coil overs for two thousand legacy. Gt like there was no reason for it to be in the US like hey. You guys are showing this part number on your website. Do you have this. He's like he's like yeah yeah. We have one set here. He's like we've never sold one of these. So you WANNA look. Apparently somebody had like packed it by mistake. Shit in Japan so he's like. He's like well. He's got a cost us this much on the back. He's like how much you pay for it so like three hundred okay off on. They weren't even like well. They're nine hundred the fifty dollars also. Do you know just just just haggle whoever was on the phone. What should have just been like yes they're here. We like to buy them and the guy didn't know like was was it an catalog. That's how the modern on the legacy started so and the digging through partners but that's like a lot of that comes from there yeah like just random stuff like that so through other stuff I found out like like the outback had a bigger brake rotors and calipers and I figured out that I could get these brackets from something else. the bigger breaks and that's kind of how the part number stuff started as like. I figured I could combine these things to make this better well. I mean what BMW M. Does like a lot. A lot of time or did was just like take shit off the seven series. Put It in the three series pretty much. It's pretty tried and true method a why not yeah and if you can use an oem part gets even better. I mean even now like working race cars like you have all these specialized racing parts and a lot of them aren't really specialized racing so like like I've worked on one race car that has an extract sequential gearbox okay so has all these specialty sensors and wiring harnesses the after by just like from these guys in the UK so I was working on one and we needed some temperature sensors so we had used the spare and we need to have a spare on the shelf for this race so the one. We took out those broken. He's like you know. The Guy knows that I can look the stuff up. He's like figure out how we can get this in the next three hours yeah so. I want to censor recognize the connector. The connector type was Bosch connector type using German cars like early nineties so basically just went online you know picked out some some ideas that I had and then and start matching up markings and ended up this. You know extra gearbox. That's used an brand new race. Cars right now uses a coolant temperature sensor from an e thirty six six three eight thousand. Ti has as its fluids sensor here and Bosch Motorsport basically use a very of that sensor but like a lot of stuff you know carries over like like that especially because so many Oem's use Bosch shifts so it crosses over like when we were at the rental car company and like not that like they would necessarily surly like quote cheap out on things that were crucial to safety but like I just I have the distinct memory seared in my brain of learning that the seat motor in the Ferrari five ninety nine the dealer wanted twelve hundred dollars for was like an eighty five dollars bosh part that goes in uh-huh like Fiat's abuse and it was like Oh and then I found out from my my vanquish they wanted twenty seven hundred dollars for fuel palm well it turns out the fuel pump is out of the fucking Ford Super Duty. It's like a hundred and eighty seven bucks at autozone. It's Horse Shit. All of this stuff is such horse shit so being able to do that the same way that like an oem if they're. GonNa buy Brembos they're going to a hell cat and I'm just using just picking a random. If two years later they can say now offering the challenger Scott Pack with the same brain to that comes with it works for advertising but also means that they can probably get those parts at a cheaper price price initially bigger whoever like they don't WanNa make eight million different little individual parts like there's only so many numbers in you know in the account in any calculate. That's that's the thing with all the stuff like. There's there's like three or four different. sizes remmel calipers like four percent that are six minutes than calipers so most of the cars on the road us one of those four and they have the general shape and what they do is when they tune it for a specific car they changed the Pistons sizes inside them so like the external case on on many will look similar issues have different size pistons so some have even size piston some have a larger leading pissed than in a smaller smaller trailing Piston or opposite and then some are almost exactly the same with just differences in Mounteney so if you take like a twenty eleven Camaro. SS Ask Front Brake Calipers and put it beside a twenty thirteen tesla model s front brake calipers. They'll look exactly the same and the mounting bracket is slightly. The bolts are just different spacing and that's why they're different parts but bramble William Knock all these things out and just modify slightly for each manufacturer as has the manufacturer does their tuning development so you know they may get a certain size caliber that has a universal amount and then you know manufacturer will do to a few years of development up and say this is what we wanted to look like now but a lot of this stuff is not that unique you know even though it is different prices can range widely. It's so the day that like you learned learned that exotic cars are not necessarily exotic parts like these things are not special now and I think you know not to like especially actually like you know this. This little red car got garage out. This Kuhn talked the parts that like it's a big V twelve but like the valves and shit our special show is particularly special a lot of it. The body work. I guess the rest of it's just sort of like normal old. Shit uh-huh Titanium Valve stems or something I I remember Guinea. The company doesn't need to then make like us different metallurgy to make different valve stems for like a high performance Ford. He's the one but I know what you mean where you go. Oh I thought it was all bespoke. Things things like in the engine but like all cars no matter how exotic like have a Lotta like similar functions they need to do like temperature sensors and pumping fuel and like filtering air and like I wouldn't be surprised if eighty percent of the cars on the road use the same fucking h. fact set up similar Yaffe if you that the the blower motors are some of the most common things you can find on stuff. I'd like the going back to Tesla the Model S. uses the same blower motor order as like a Hyundai accent isn't like Mondelez is particularly good at hiding the fact. That's got a lot of because when they started when they started building the model s. they didn't have any big contracts they could negotiate with tier one suppliers yeah so like they had some stuff they did with. Ford Dad Dad some stuff they did with Daimler and dime actually partner with them top off. Give me give me a run to the bookers. We we finished the the lightweight Lotus absolutist this the Colin Chapman the English but here's you want someone that's good. Booker's is like forty. Four percent is excellent. I like us more than normal but I can't recall oh sixty sixty four usually asking that has a smooth delicious promoter. Tesla couldn't negotiate for the big contracts so like like the switchgear and a lot of the stuff inside is like Mercedes parts like I did window switches all that stuff like that he has Mercedes parts and then they have a bunch of Ford cars like the accelerator pedal on the Model S. from like two thousand seven Ford fusion yeah stuff like that because they could buy existing parts and then fabricate advocate their car around it is that more or less of a sin like let's call it the two million dollar or three million dollars. Zonda Ronda having a engine block from Nineteen ninety-five at Mercedes S. L. Seventy three you know I don't know it. Just depends like stuff. You can't see like that accelerator pedal model less like plastic pat yeah and you press it and it does what it needs to do like that's fine and even the engine. I would say in that Zonda like if it makes aches the power most people that are gonNA care. It's I think they I think he liked that engine. I and I'm not I'm not I'm just trying to like I'm actually trying to give Tesla slow a little bit of the benefit of the doubt that's completely fine what they did with the models and yet light because if they hadn't done that if they had big money on trying to lure these suppliers to build parts form they probably would have spent a whole bunch more money on the Model S. and you know the price would have gone up very quickly yeah so I mean I can understand that I like all the stuff that's hidden underneath like. When are you ever going to look at a blower motor unless I don't give a shit out of Blake now. I think I think it's I think it's interesting vicious interesting to talk about how how many many many exotic cars us some really normal ask the more noticeable. It is the bigger problem is that sounds dumb but like if every if the first thing you touch when you get in an exotic or performance car window switches door shared knowing egregious but if it if it means on they make they make their own like underwear if everything you kinda interact with is really special or look special and and then a couple of things that you don't touch the latter are shared. I find it. It's less offensive. No it makes sense and that's like Ashton's in the nineties like they use like Mazda Dobro. Oh I got a I got a list. I got a list. I got I my vanquish is an oath. Roy even then Yeah Ford Parts. Every I've got a Jaguar key. I've got a Volvo Air Vent Jaguar H Fach Oh yeah here pull up pull that up can you can you full stream that one. I've got Jaguar Stereo Jaguar Jaguar H. Back. The seats are made by Ricardo. They're the same as the Audi s four. If you'll notice the the beef are be says for that. Steering Wheel was was in like every like non unbranded. European car was like roof Weiss and Weisman ever everybody uses the air bags and it goes in everything. Actually I really that's I think my least favorite part. I think I hate the I think I'd like a d. That's a Jag something the lead me somewhere weird yeah you're on your in the weeds now but yeah lots of Ford I mean I don't resent that much. Actually I mean now like at this point like if you have something that feels like you could probably pull the part out look at the part number instead of paying some guy in the UK five hundred dollars. You might be able to go to the Ford the maybe fifty dollars well yeah. Maybe we did it with the fuel pump up. There's a whole world autozone better hiding stuff because you're asked in you. You know it's the buttons like on the center console like on. HVAC huge glaring at nineties Jaguar is the way speaking of spink being able to go the other dealers like you. You did a nice an analysis of like supra and based on like because I 'cause like here's the I went to the launch and forgetting the pretense of supra right getting what it looks like. It's just like here's a sports car driving yeah. I found it lovely thought about. Have you driven one yet. I have not great to dry everybody. I've talked to zero one and even some of the professional drivers that drew on everybody's very they're very pleased with them. Yeah but you like us. You know you said like they fed us a story that it was sort of like okay we read on a wheelbase and we agreed on a displacement and and then we sort of went our own ways and but if you especially look at the parts in the car which I didn't do but you certainly did that. Story doesn't really hold much water does it. It's your version of the story based based on the hardware in the car so I went to the BMW EPC so go are gone who noble H. O. ON ABC Dot Com that you'll see like like all the all my stories there you're able to find. I didn't realize you actually use the website. It used to be my personal blog before I started teaching people oh so long form and not just on twitter while well then I converted into portfolio so whenever one of my stories goes up a link to a there so there's on Haggerty so basically clearly I pulled up the part catalogue for Lizzie foreign for the super and just started going down the list so stuff like that I know matters like when I to like adjust racecar setup race cars uh Cambridge toe and stuff like that these adjustments like is there a difference ruling that Toyota actually go in and say we built our own parts or even just the different adjustment so what what I found out as the super like the complete rear suffering basically and all the rear control arms are from the new three series so like all that separate development like it's. It's not like the three series. Did they. Reinforce suffering on that you think said you may use anything from our catalog catalogue the appropriate for a supra. I think I think what happened is. BMW Did allow development and then Toyota dead like kind of what you would the race car basically where they got a car that was kind of a blank slate and the track and they're like well. Let's adjust this a little bit yeah. Let's move the wheels in a little bit here. Let's change the toilet here so what I found on is. The rear suspension is all. BMW off the shelf stuff the front suspension other than one of the toll sets toll links is pretty much each all from the Z four okay so they changed the toll a little bit in the Front for what I remember from the Z four and they changed the ride height and I figure that out because BMW's ride light sensors and they have a few different calibrations so there are a few different part numbers for ride height sensors. If cars are similar height they'll have the similar arm for the sensor but disea- foreign the super have different part numbers so they have adjustments there in ride height than possibly Cambridge but there's kind of a whole detailed explanation that a story but the thing is is that they're pretty much the same car as far as suspension setup goes yeah and even power like the reason. A lot of people are seeing more power on the Dyno for the supra is because it's probably making more power than what's advertised so yeah it runs the same issue all as long as the same stuff like so they not seeing that in the Z. Four they only see in the supra while they're seeing it above advertised disease or has the three seventy five or thirty five and no one's quite for the same engine in both cars say it makes more yeah that's called a McLaren out actually actually did a story on that too. I went through both engines. I think I wrote that for Jalopy Nick. Maybe mcclair and WBZ was supposed to come on like a lot of the parts are shared and that allow the parts and the super. They just pulled from the other line six. Has I think like an oil pump out of an x five yeah but like the main engine like Pistons crankshaft Pistons Rods. It's our decision between both engines three hundred eighty five or whatever it is horsepower those e four and three thirty five in the supra turbo slightly bigger. There's a few other small differences references but even still the Supromega more power. I think then then as advertising sure is bigger in which car. I'm sorry okay so Z. Four is like I think it's three seventy five or eighty. I can't remember now then they'll like the super three thirty five and there's a three thirty five zero four and like the engine turbo and everything that are in the supra are directly from Z. Fourteen Europe right so I mean it's interesting stuff like I. It's weird how how far I mean. They went like when I tell you. They went pretty far out of their way to give us his story. I mean I think I think they saw I think every because they gave us the story after we drove and so I think I think everybody got to the cars went. You know these things are great but they are very very. BMW BECAUSE THAT'S GONNA go look this is. This thing is really nice but like I can. There's a lot of BMW here obviously and I think they really wanted to take home their point and this figure I mean it's just that's that's. That's just how it is. I mean it's the same thing. Did you see the the launch edition fucking tank on bring a trailer. Oh I didn't I saw what they went up on. Twitter finish bid up to a thousand under sticker notion. Yeah fifty-six fifty-seven expect to that's like seventy years now I thought it would give five or six over like and just be like okay really wanted one behind the fucking Mike Bosie oh show me Fox usually put headphones on so that they can hear them saw away from the mic but not you because you've been at racetrack. We're on texture with like Parker. Clergyman Lean for proving grounds which is on Sundays by the way and and the launch tradition gets advertising like what do you think and we were just like do not do this. Yeah I did know not not He's actually appreciate you know. It's GonNa be a car that painted black yeah yeah. That's it yeah well all the NASCAR guy so I mean I a clear men. He drives a Toyota so I'm sure that's why he was looking at it but like there's a whole bunch of supra pres- rolling around Moore's law right now because all the NASCAR guys like are buying them good looking. I bet they're fun against the car itself. I thought that was like Komo special enough. If you go spend fifty two thousand dollars on a regular supra you're getting absolutely definitely not on something. That's not a limited shouldn't spend a dime over the hype is ended a red one sitting right here outside under a dealer on under a tent. Oh side for fucking six months because they probably want eighty grand for the stupid thing. I haven't looked at to see if they've started coming across the auctions but I've seen my first one in person the other day I saw like this little. Isn't it yeah. It's very small small. I mean I've seen that at auto shows and stuff but seeing it on the road like rolling beside like an F. One fifty is basically the same size as an eighty six uh-huh and it's shorter yeah like it's ridiculous like seeing auto show. You know it's got its display lifted. It doesn't seem to have small Barack when it's on the roads like wow it's a little car. Yeah I mean that's. That's why ways you know doesn't away a lot and you know it's pretty responsive. y'all get in the super chatty share with us live. It's probably its latest. Fuck for a lot of you so What is it now east coast yeah so if you're asking chat we're. GonNa do a few more minutes and then Gengo your questions before we get out of here because neither bows nor is has had dinner and he just got off a flight so we're not we're not gonNA fucking. Kill him tonight but Oh so taking tassell isolate the nurburgring. Oh so let's talk about this because it's comments about this on twitter yesterday and I woke up this morning and they're just like notifications from all over the place like fast tesla detractors like everybody's got an opinion yeah so like the gist of it is like and I've talked about this in the past us. There's with these records like there are a few official testing sources and there are a few unofficial testing sources so like Eh Laguna which is one of the places where or like you know the Tesla's been tested. There's no like official like testing procedure certification procedure like all the Laguna records are just kind of written down around and most of them are when motrin rents the track randy pope's goes out and drives a car and they post the video and that's used kind of as the citation for the fastest Carlina sake pretty much just accepted casual crackdown like everybody knows that you know like post mess around. They're going to act you know he's GonNa. Act as an independent party and motor trends renting the track out but like guard from that is like on some days they might go to track and it's sixty degrees on Sundays. They might go the track. It's ninety. Five degrees on Sundays might be slightly damp Sundays. It's not so like all these outside conditions affect these records and the same thing with the nurburgring and especially so because especially because Laguna Seca is short so like you'll do a minute and a half or two min- lap you know in that range depending on the cars were the nurburgring is you know eight or nine times longer yeah and it could be raining on half the track right there because it's so spread out so like all these nurburgring wrapped elapsed like the KBA which is like the dot or something like that of Germany like they have some official categories during official record runs where they list cars so the the Taicang hi can or take Kenneth Lava figure out how that taking taking taking our take so and by the way I just see you know the Lotus Electric v I I J. A. Just take it away. It's via of I learned that from the lowest guys okay take out so taken taken so the taken that Iran and it was you you know publicity here in like August or something record run for for the electric sedan. The only issue is that doesn't have a category for four door. Sedans Porsche worship just made that category. They're like we're just going to do this and like they set. That record casual accepted so I I pretty much first of all like that record. Doesn't it really exists. It exists in their mind. I like that's the thing with press release journalism like they'll put that press release out and it's going to be on fifty sites and fifty blogs awesome because no nobody clarified later regional allies for stuff like that little quick hits like you exciting like nobody's going to do background research talking especially when there's a video. I Don and so you go okay. No one's it'd be like wait. Is that a real record but they sent out. The first record is always the first record years does have to set the pace correct and fucking fast yeah. It's very fast so that's the thing what I got out of that like the time is very good but the main thing that most people should get out of that is that it was able to do a lap successfully at full pace for the whole allow totally. That's that's like what you should get like out of that not that it's this time and now the Model S. is going to get all this stuff and do this time and if the Model S. is able to get close to at that time or being it like hats off to them that would be extraordinary but it would be very extraordinary but apparently new motors and stop us. The thing is like most of these electric cars on the nurburgring. They were like one off specials like the VW ID are like that. Most of them can complete a whole. I mean haven't people tried to run stock model lasts nurburgring fully unsuccessful so I know that nurburgring times and see if on the wikipedia ones run a model molested a complete last minute story today that they they think that there's an astros basically they deland has built in where he's bringing a seven seat Tesla Tesla today. He'll be setting these seven. That's a whole new level so he's bringing along with the seats in the hatch you know but there was a model model s p eighty five like twenty fourteen or fifty and the dead complete a lap and I think it was like eight and a half minutes so complete alab starting modified for like extra cooling if you if you look at the Tesla if the Model S. test doing at the nurburgring row like it doesn't look terribly different but if you start looking at the details you'll notice things so you'll notice that like the front entry for the cooling system is almost double the size now grill in the middle. There's splitter on the front has been expanded stuff like that. two thousand fifteen a d did in eight fifty the car. I was thinking Porsche has pointed out a lot with the taking like zero sixty but they're like can do at twenty six times in a row so we can perform at the same level over and over or for a long duration like on the numbering versus gas guzzlers are remember you know you can you can launch turbo as a hundred times and in the car couldn't possibly give fuck yeah. That's that's exactly and that's that's the thing that people should take away from this. which almost nobody that likes replying to to me? You're like throwing stuff at me on twitter consistent Senate Jacquard like if you can't do that then that's a step forward yeah like if you can do that and repeat it to multiple APPs. That's going to be another step forward and you know if you can do that and be fast like this steps forward but that's that'll be the test it'll be. This'll definitely be on top gear in a year. Maybe two but they're. GonNa drag race taken in Model P. One hundred hundred zero to one hundred thirty or whatever and let's do do it again and again around right but and I think Porsche is doing a test slash publicity stunt stop were they run one for twenty four straight hours only stopping to charge it at a track toner something Nardo I think I think they did a somewhere over. There are irradiated already. What Oh wait shit blogging wait a no porsche track nurburgring evergreen God mother the model okay the actual cars that Tesla sent over there. You see one on the one the expired Calvin actually actually actually I was the one to pull that up initially so like so bottle is telling me like I was I was I was like I got to the house us last night. I was like eight or nine o'clock implore laptops he was going on. It's all of these people I tweeted at me and I saw these pictures so I was like. Let me run this tag through low. Carfax the this is the Model S. US spotted in front of the Piston Class Sabinas Schmitz's families restaurant where you eat steak stone yeah so I pulled up the tag and like had it like reverse so I did a winter coat and found out it was twenty seventeen model last which kind of weird and I posted that up and I can't remember who it was now but somebody follows me one and did the full report and found out there was like twenty seven twenty seventeen molest was a lemon by bag the tesla had bought bag based on you know the had posted post that later like every throw we found out that was like a model s that was back and which is not a terrible idea like using it as a developed my my car because they don't have to build a whole new car. My guess is the Tesla had to buy this car back because it had some kind of issue than they've stripped everything other than the chassis and now they just stick all these kind of developed parts on it which in and of itself is not a problem but if that's what you're going to do okay if you're going to base your development mule on a buyback lemon lemon law car. Would you send it to the nurburgring with an expired Al Afford to which you got a fucking traceable licensed in lemon on it fucking eater. That's that's like stuff like that is just like discrepancies like that like you would think that people take care of. It didn't have a front plate until this morning which you know. It's who knows what they were thinking. They just had a replayed even think front plates. It's a required here right well so yeah. I mean I in general. This is just kind of dumb situation. You can get a temporary registration for this thing in Germany to test all. It's not yeah well when the car got there. It was literally sitting on this expired because I could tell the sticker was it wasn't fucking doc in yellow bright expired sticker tag that was just traceable to eleven law by and it's like you are right fine. You got your temporary reg. Let everybody take this plate that lead to a lemon law claim they should have used like one of their manufacturer tags which are not traceable civil at all like the tax you can't trace those at all because they're not assigned to a specific dislikes. Jersey Yeah exactly this is just use one of those like what would you see on the press cars and stuff yeah so like Hardcore Tesla fucking Bros.. Are All schibsted development mule. What's the big deal ever got development. It's like It's is obviously Eli ongoing sense cars over there right now. Get some fucking widely flaps. All these people tweeting me like well. This is better than this and like a lot of is like hey like. I said this like two days ago or three days ago. All these people to do you take like yesterday I I hadn't. I hadn't mentioned the tycoon or take whatever it is like at all the whole day or even today. I was just talking about the Tesla the one at Laguna Seca on number ring and just kind of you know sharing my observations nations on twitter and all of these fans were tweeting on me about the take can have not mentioned this thing once. They're like well the take this and they had a role Cajun. Yeah that's fine like I said I like. Their record doesn't count because it's not an official category at like now. It's just the the humor summer in the situation is that it's so obvious. He decided to do this five days ago. Just get it. Done didn't understand like think ed like you've been. Have you been to the number going. I have not on Zach Span. I've been the resources I know how the industry works and all that other stuff. I know I know a lot of these guys. The work are like oem stuff that were also work are as far as these guys. These guys want to do something like this like like they'll pick out like four or five cars and then they'll take over there for like twelve or fifteen or sixteen weeks. They'll just test every day. Whenever they have industry full-time they'll just test data data test data test data and then after they've completed that twelve or fifteen or sixteen weeks then they'll actually attempt to run and then they'll record there on and after they know it's all good then they'll do pr stuff but also we're. We're not talking about a car. You're buying right. I mean even the cars. They've got like all right. Maybe there's some you'll for my my theory is they will come out with some wide-body agreeing package. They'll build five hundred one and that'll be bad plaid. Mow Lawns let Blake Blake a great tweet today that said I think all aw Lonzo only seen space balls because that's where all the jokes go. That's where all the jokes which I mean. It's not singling him out because other people have done it to. There's a numbering dish and there's all these other cars and that's fine like that's like. That's the thing that I think that allows. GonNa miss here is they're. There are all these other manufacturers have done these special editions like he has an easy way out like he can just do the special edition and just follow the template. The other manufacturers have done just so they can satisfy the minimum animal to call it a record but I think he's going to let us Hubris kind of get over it and he's GonNa do some crazy wild doesn't need to all do do is make them look worse. Like like builds really cool interesting fast exciting cars Porsche same thing and it's just like this weird appeared fire broke out and I was like hey by the way excuse me folks. Do you remember when they cared about autonomy and then Porsche where she comes out like our electric car is for driving fast intestines like to the number. We're GONNA drive with our hands like we're not. I self driving motivation anymore but don't be a whopper because the height Michelle needs to move forward because the hype machine what is interesting is. I wonder if this hype conversation will reach outside the bubble that we exist in like well people all that have money are. GonNa go buy a luxury electric vehicle. Do they give will they even hear about which one won a record that they made up that I I think I think that some people hear about it because there are some people that are bench racers just like to compare numbers but for the vast majority of people is they want the shiny new thing and the shiny new thing is the Porsche like the the Model S. was the shiny new thing for five or six years yeah but now there's a porsche and they can look cool in the Porsche be Green Jason because the brand loyalty bought the fleas got got you know the early adopter was the first model the brand loyalty least the Second Model S. but will those people put up with the quality and quality policy issues or they go you mean I can have this sort of future thing from a company that has been building cars for sixty years. Yeah ooh I mean that's there's. I think that the Porsche Taika like base like I think forty or fifty percent of the buyers are like standard Porsche buyers so they own nine elevens they on this or that and you know they may have currently owned an SUV or the mail in like a hybrid BMW A. B. or something and like or may own a tesla but they're like Porsche loyalists thing like at least thirty or forty percent of that is Porsche people that just want another another porsche now they have a family car yeah and I think a certain portion maybe twenty or thirty percent. We'll move from a model Lesser Model X. because it's the new cool things people especially here on the West Coast is they want the cool new thing but they don't WanNa look like they're terrible. People yeah so like they'll you know like like a lot of people drove. ps in the mid to thousands because because there was no other option to look like you're friendly to the environment that Leno bit that's a great classic Leno. Leno Leno has a bit about the press. He's like the Prius is ugly so that you can go to Rodeo drive and you see you see what I'm for you giving things out yeah that was the thing is like they could go into a car that was quick like in a straight line those comfortable you know had decencies frist the loss and be outward- Green Nike private jets. It's like yeah. Basically it's like driving a a you know a pan-american. Turbo or whatever but you can feel like you're saving the earth because it's electric and like there's a lot of people that drive imagine you're in the Porsche dealership for the taking hey can and you're like Oh okay. These options are nice. I like these colors. That's pretty good you know. Bluetooth screens like standard like well the Tesla had that you like how many sec the investigations. Do you know. I do like Uh. I'm sure that that take care anti can you'll be able do paint the sample and all this other Tesla. Now is like we'll give you seven colors law to them. Maybe we'll do four later. Maybe we got three now. and Niedermayer's book that there was something about the model three like like the cost of adding read. was fucking astronomical weird to ought to be able to offer read like I I. I don't know I'm blanking on the exact specifics. It was something ridiculous. I know they set up a special area and I had never really looked into deeply but I know they set up a special like a special tenth for the red color so I like like people had like these like these guys are like out there and planes helicopters taking pictures of the Tesla factory and it looked like a murder scene rewire ah paint the model threes right at least address exactly that fence keys video of the paint quality on his mile L. Three. Oh so so last month as this kind of worked out really well so last month I was pebble and I ended up on the same program as Jason. It was me and Jason and a canard from ruined track in house on the show is great awesome so it worked out really well but like you know like I I had never met Jason and personal like from online and stuff like that we just talked through emails for became best friends and so we're just like the whole trip yep. We're just narrating out like you know we're there with with Nissan and so it was it was a good experience at the spend some time with Jason Long lost brother. Yeah Yeah we had. We had a very good time. It was very very enjoyable but Jason School Let's get some audience shit before we got here. I'm I'm like Super Hungry. They get hungry too. yeah 'cause. WE'RE GONNA go get food after this. It's late for us. It's probably later for punching. I can't midnight. I can't see all right. Let's see the coal people who just love Bosie. Thank you thank you guys a legend. Anthony says something to be said for buying a car with the preconceived have known that it's a piece shit and being pleasantly surprised I went from an are fifty three cooper s I all I went to Archie Cooper s from Corolla. Presumably the people told him his many was going to be a piece of shit surprise. Don't worry just keep driving and that's been my experience to try to repair them and people just refusing it has one hundred sixty thousand miles on it has broken it works it is yeah fell the fuck apart about eighty five thousand miles and mine mine all mine my new. I had an O. six J C. W and I bought it in new Ino. Oh six brand new is the last one on the lot I drove it. The warranty's fifty thousand miles I drove I sold it with forty nine thousand eight hundred forty Mile Guy to guy that I thought was just a regular guy but later realized was actually an exporter send it to the Middle Middle East somewhere and works so sidebar. They're just minis so the team I worked with an there on Honda civic tea CR cars but also so ron minis and world challenge and they used to run minis in Amazon when they were allowed there so many fans are some of the most dedicated fans I've ever met so like this is a serious this team in IMSA. Now is not running any meters at also all the cars are running our Honda civic type rs but all the mini the fans they had from like the past decade you know used to support the minis now support the Honda team because they still run the media's in world challenge and like these people come to the races and like they'll come like you know like you know like full gear yeah like they'll support the team just because the team at some point either in their past asked or in another series supports many their sporting spent fifty. Jesus one point eight liter face and I've met I've met a few of them that have like those. GP's and all these other cars and they'll come. They'll you know there's just like so enthusiastic like I don't know like many pull our hair like they're very it's like a courtyard and like they're all into it is if they want to see if you want to buy into culture fucking meeting their their marketing marketing team when I had my many and when it was new and still kind of like under the warranty uh the shit they would show up at my house. Who's always really fun. I I mean it was like it wasn't anything of value but it was like t shirts and like this little boxes of like you know things that would pop up and open and Holler fall all in like really really really really good. Wow very smart people who are doing their shit. I don't love their cars but at the time are fifty three was jammed tyler says. Can we talk about how radd the Mitsubishi Pajero. Yvo is thoughts on importing one versus trying to build something similar. I'll twenty K. budget in the states so it's it's an awesome car. I mean it's the you know the same thing as the material here but we never got the evil version so you you can buy a Monteiro here but you'll never be able to do anything on a reasonable budget to get close to the heroic. Yvo so like if up a hero allegations national national voice what you want one yeah I like. It's it doesn't make sense like you can throw bunches and bunches of money. Monteiro and you still won't be able to set it up to be similar to I talked about these I don't know last year whenever and I- incorrectly correct myself very publicly incorrectly. Said said that it was an evil motor. It's not it's not it's it's the same v six that we got in the Montero's here it was just tuned yeah three liter or three and a half. Liter v six same as Diamante Monte Yup same same motor montage same as a three thousand. Gt recall when I when I see them for sale from the importers like if you want one like I don't i. I don't think my Guy Sean Morris top-ranking Puertas. I don't think he has one right now. If you want you can find he'll get he'll get you one and they're all the importers quarters always they pass through like they're not expensive like your budget's. Twenty K. R. O. Egos like twelve thirteen. I think yeah it's it's it's it's a total nerd special and they look cool but but in in actual money expensive very expensive other Mitsubishi News the delicate done the tomorrow Crook text today and he said he is so apparently there's a guy who got real into the project and like detailed and refinished like all my plastics said it looks incredible semi picture he's overhaul when when you come down because you got is yours a diesel yeah exceed the have the most also the Cadillac. Oh Yeah delica Aleka Star win the most awesome day so he was like a ninety to ninety one ninety one thousand kilometers yeah I remember I saw the picture instagram like I figured it was the most awesome as I like those are not terribly expensive and like they use a lot of Montero Pars totally website delicate. USA Okay Dot Com shows you all the equivalent Montero part numbers yeah actually tracked down some tyrod ends for delicate yeah and they're from the three thousand gt uh-huh like find the stuff so he like message me on twitter and let me find out they definitely did not put that in the GT catalog along the same as the if you have a broken tyrod India we replaced the show I replace the shocks Kyi Bees and replaced place the upper ball joints and it was three hundred and forty. It's amazing so allegri last year I had a couple of years ago had sold the last year nineteen nine hundred eighty nine. Montero's is a first year Montero and now is like the whole thing was like Barak Auto brand new broder's new shocks new break Kline like all this other stuff was eighty three dollars cheap yeah nicholas cheap Riley says how do I convince my girlfriend. She doesn't want to six thousand thousand dollar mini Cooper for a daily reliable college student car well. It's not reliable. See Our earlier conversation from six thousand dollars. Get your rate. Japanese knees car from the mid two thousand. Sammy says Matt you've driven both Alpha foresee and the Lotus Evora. Which would you buy in wife. Life Adora all day and seventy five times on Sunday. Make sure it's a supercharged model. There was a lot of other things that were changed when and they added the superchargers beyond just sue charter if you can afford it a four hundred is motherfucking jam jam and they are lovely the Vohra has all the good things about the foresee accept. It doesn't suck yeah doesn't have Italian reliability. It's not Italian Tom. Thomas says what is the most fun on four wheels for ten thousand dollars. I mean it depends like what do you want to find fun. Yeah like you WANNA. Do you WANNA go. You know just have little curvy roads. Do you WanNa do track days. Do you WANNA go off road. I mean that's that's kind of a hard question to answer without knowing some specifics. The did have someone contact me today and confirm with their own photo evidence that a safari. LS Four hundred is is indeed nothing more than strut sponsors and big wheels entirety yeah. That's a lot of these so far you builds. Now are like one inch or a to in space or like. It's not an actual bill. What kind of damage will that do if you actually offroad it if any so it depends on where it's placed on where the space was replaced. There's not gonNA do any damage but it's you know you're the shock. Value is set up for the factory. Riots set up to off road so I like Europe. You're not in eleven yeah. I have shocked center for my raptor. Yeah so like somebody like keen you know he's he's a professional driver so he has has experience with you know like dampers involving and you know like just set up adjustments for you know torn. Cambridge things like that and tires you're using all of that goes into an equation where like I'm sure he either says doubt or yeah somebody like me that he's worked with in the past where like they look at the numbers and say we're going to use this this and this and then they send the stuff back to the damper manufacturer actor or you have knobs where you can just compression rebound and stuff like that and and these guys are just puts. Pacers on is they go out there and the cards bounce around eventually. It'll wear out the dampers or the sharks. Whatever you know whatever you have on there and it's not going to perform in a manner. It should perform an offroad like it'll bottom out and and do these things even though it's raised off when it enter something it'll still bottom out because the sharks aren't you know able sport that pressure yeah to clarify if this dude a sports car ten K. you know you're talking. Civics miatas cows stuff for ten K. If you want a sports car I would get an NC MIATA get the revised version of DNC Miata with the speed which is like two thousand ten and up and you could get one of those now for like seven perfect and you can put a fusion motor like a two point five liter. Both it's right up to a leader both right up you can find one for two hundred and fifty dollars and you can pay somebody fifteen hundred dollars but one in and how much more power to you get you goes from Rama one sixty one sixty two like one ninety. Oh really tell you look like a two thousand dollar investment. That's like somebody put it. In the same literally early all the outside stuff is the placement just the displacement is different and the intake manifold is different but you can like slightly modified intake manifold so Boltzmann amazing there you go and see Z. MIATA with the two and a half liter swamp there you go you probably find one. That's already swabs for like eight grand perfect. Anthony says that I mentioned a place wants to pose freelance articles in the past the exposure what was it I think I meant like Kinjo honestly but you can also like road and track. Dot Com is looking for content you can email a Bob Sore Cana- rich which I don't. It's like I don't want to say is you can get him on twitter. You can get let him or travis a call ski like find a website or the an outlet that you like typically. They're editor or their associated or deputy. Editor is like doc easily accessible via social media and like send a DM and be like here. I wrote this do you do you not like it. If you like you just have to have examples ample so if you don't have an example of your writing anywhere out there most people aren't GonNa give you the time of daily right setup personal blog blog or use Kim Jong. That's that's basically I started as I have a little personal blog and I was on like message boards or forums. I was like let me try and post this on a blog and see if people read it and people right out all right and then after a while I just started pitching it to get paid for and take my advice. If you want to try writing today start with something that is not just car- refuse yeah everybody. Everybody does car reviews and that's that's like the main benefit I have is. I have a niche car. I do occasional rules but it's like it's a good niche because I can pitch to anybody. The Ends Different Yeah Luke says I've heard a lot of hype about the Camaro one Ellie. Is it as good as everyone says I think so yeah Reynard awesome any level of get at a even even the small motors like it's a good car we were. NCI and we were racing I had matt busby because I hadn't been an NC in Chapter Matt Busby car. Whatever safe which was the four cylinder turbo one Ellie Joe and he was mobbing they have they have the the whole setup for the bigger cars and you can make all the adjustments you have the power by like a four cylinder. One elite is actually a really good car like if you want to get started driving on a track because you get all the adjustments you can make on the suspension but you don't have a whole bunch of power lake where you can end up in a wall yeah it was he was actually going pretty good so no. I mean the one Elliott like handling package. All the motors is yeah. It is very good. let's see okay thoughts on the same luke okay thoughts on the viability the ability of running an older formula. Renault for track days. Apparently you can get a vintage Formula Ford or newer Formula Renault two leader for similar cash if the choice is yours. What would you have in ride. Do you have any open meal experience with this. a little bit. I would probably do the Formula Ford. I mean a formula. Renault is nice to just from like a crew chief. Mechanic perspective perspective is because parts availability and just because there's more people know how to work on them but even the formula Renault two like that's not a huge their friends stuff like that's what you prefer it's fine like I would probably lean to the Formula Ford Larry Webster the VP of content and haggerty. He owns a formula Ford would so like during the historic race he actually raised on the Sam Smith. He's fast or had. Larry owns Gurney built Formula Formula Ford and there were a final cars and you can do all kinds of fun stuff with them but I think I would probably go forward just because most vintage vintage shops or crews that you can rent to support your race track. We'll have more experience than the formula Renault but could call the former nose not that much more. I drove a formula when Renault wants like two engines not that special. It's a whatever says fairly similar here in America. Get the guy. Don't get a fresh engine if you don't you know what they mean if it's not if it's not crucial to your experience by a situation sm for your cruising car yeah Brian Ryan says a while ago I responded. The question with one fast. Daily driver is better than a slow daily and too slow sports car. I've bought a Juliet. Ti Sport and love it. Oh thank you all right cool. Good Julius Yeah. That's that's a really good car. I hope the best for you. It's a really fun car when it works. I agree gravity. Drifts says are thirty-two. GTRI is worth the price is something to experience or is there a better better experience for the money. I really like our thirty two. I've driven a bunch of different ones and they are really really fun. They drive much much more modern than their age would actually indicate. They're equal parts. Analog and sort of the engines are really really lovely. and is there a better. I you know it doesn't they don't have as much curb appeal as you think they do. Most people just see it as an old Nissan. They don't really or something yeah yeah and then when people do see they lose their share. especially keen is building one currently yeah he bought his from Sean Saint Place. I bought mine from and like like I think if you if you think you might like one like if you liked it in video games and you like how it looks and driving on the right doesn't bother you it more more than lives up to what you think it's going to be. You know what I mean and so like a collector grade one for forty k. like maybe it's actually yeah. I think it's probably a thirty five or forty thousand driving experience for a nice one. Yeah they're fun. Do they are fun. I mean right now. If you get one for thirty five and drive it for a year like don't put a whole bunch of miles was on it yeah you're GONNA get thirty five and possibly more. They're starting to go up at least the rest being able to a very strongly recommend keeping powertrain in stock like if you must modify limited to coil overs and tasteful wheels from a really good brand. BBS work or t thirty seven keep it or a fifty fifty or fifty million if you're gonNA modify those and then like the it needs to be with the right parts otherwise if people are like ooh. It's like poison and well because if you look at a car that's a tuner car whereas you know popular with that crowd and use the key parts on it. You're GonNa go what else elsom awesome Let's see Dante Zero says speaking of cool electric's thoughts on California's lightning motorcycles and there. I've never seen lightning motorcycles. Let's go the next question Zack. Will you look that up. Ren Says my ninety seven miata engine blew wanting to swap it budget three and a half. K. and I do not have skill what fits in a ninety seven MIATA MIATA Bosie. MLS fits for three and a half the cheapest LS swap. I've done in a Miata so like not counting labor forty two hundred dollars yeah. That's completely out of it all right like you could get an old boss. Fraud Kit toge- three zero two out of afford okay so I get out of a Fox body. Get a three or two and what about just better four cylinders. Can you put a newer MIATA engine in there for thirty five hundred bucks or not really you can but it's not using thing not going to be a huge bump. It doesn't fit the direct injection pump on the back of the head interferes with the firewall and the older miatas like you can do there some guys doing. I eco-tax. GM kotex swamps that are about two hundred horsepower but even that like without a skill if you're going to have to pay somebody three or four grand at least plus the three or four grand for the kid on the motor. There's a Honda k twenty four swab swab from those guys over thirty five hundred bucks. Just the kits usually are three to four grand because it requires some fabrication. Yeah and plus if you don't have the skill and you're paying somebody somebody that's another three or four grand in the labor yeah so like stock motor you can go to a slightly newer one point eight liter. Maybe ten or fifteen horsepower but you know unfortunately if you don't have the skill in that range. You're not going to get a whole lot. If you got the scale you got the cash pretty much dude expert also what's up with this lightning motorcycles Scott one hundred mile range one hundred sixty eight pounds of Torque two hundred horsepower. ooh revs The ten five and it will go to eighteen. If you have high speed bearing on it wow that's not getting narrows. pull the picture up. It's very spiky. It looks like a you know a six hundred thousands or by clicking good-looking bike. I mean those made in. La Five hundred pounds I think he's at San Jose. Did you ever seen it before yeah before I if you work at lightning hit me out I mean. It looks like I see people in. La Electric's electronic zeros arose and those are cool yeah interesting yeah good city bikes. I don't have any thoughts I'm sorry. Oh anything else. Oh Blake wants wants to know oh because I put a tweet. I put instagram post up. Can you go to the my instagram of the steering. Wheel's I drove the Ferrari eight twelve and then I drove the GT three RS thought the approach to steering wheels was interesting has buttons on the wheel and then click over to the right. Zach Porsche has nothing so completely different approaches here and the question is which do I prefer so I called the the Ferrari race car theaters or something like that or motorcycle. That's cool yeah because they're pretending to be a race car but it's not a race car stuff. It looks like it on the steering like Yeah Okay Race Cars Stigma. They don't do this. They don't do any of this stuff. These do you have pet limiters. Radio buttons changing fuel maps and stuff like that yeah. This is just like cruise control. It's like blinkers and stuff like that and so and then on the Porsche they they have lost is if you're on the track you're not changing channels and nothing wrong with blinker stock. The blinker stocks in the wipers talks. Yes Sir basically the same new works. It's fine and so so here's where I really think I think each of their weel's really do match the character of those cars and with the Ferrari I think it works because the Ferrari you really never have to remove your hands ninety three yeah. This car has the fastest front engine. I've ever used combined with a very shit turning radius. It's there's not a lot of this very a little angle that could be because of the way the suspension set up the rag could be very good but like we talked about the Alpha in the past like if Akron style setup for the suspension where it'll like do a little bit a little hoppy and have a big turning radius when you're slow speed and turning. It'll be bad but when you're going fast I WANNA turn. It will respond very quick yeah so like it's trade-offs. I think each of the steering wheel's did match the character director of the cars although if you just asked which I really prefer I think I go no buttons. I think no buttons over all the button. That's that makes sense. Yeah Yeah I think we had one more than go last question then. WE'RE GONNA go get some fucking late dinner. Jordan says is a hell cat red eye wide-body right body worth a two hundred and fifty dollar a day rental experience thinking of renting one from my thirtieth on Sunday seven hundred horsepower wide-body hell cat for two Jordan fifty dollars for twenty four hours. I would say a big fat. Yes yes. I agree if you're paying thirty dollars a day for Hyundai accent two hundred fifty fifty for that experts seven hundred horsepower very reasonable. Hell cat is a lot of laughs. If you've never experienced a hell cat motor. It's a fucking can great great laugh machine so you should definitely spend two hundred dollars on a hell cat for can burning rubber area. Do you want to promote anything. Bows just usual stuff so in follow me dot com is like my portfolio at not on twitter so that kind of matches up follow me there. Bozize's the best follow on twitter if if you have cards because he digs through like import documents and engine diagrams and fucking Nerdy Shit. You're glad someone else can summer you. Ah stuff like a lot of that stuff. I use like with a lot of this stuff. I work so like I work in trucking to and all kinds of things and I use just with a lot of my jobs gigs and stuff. I use a lot of that stuff and then I'll share some information. I'll find but I find it really helps like when the when the focus. Rs like head gasket. We talked car forthwith. Lincoln guests well that that's helpful because they've got numbers from him and I have a guy inside four. GimMe the numbers I went back and forth I was able to if all you do as a as a fan of cars. Is You scroll scroll through like twitter quickly in the morning you read road and track and reach a lot like you see the story that grabs your interest. That might just be Oh. The head gasket too badly blown up. That's what it is and then you continue to spread information every parking lot for the rest of your life. That's a lot of that stuff and that's the thing is there are a lot of people that are just kind of Agra aggregating other people's information so if one person says something once and all these other blogs or websites aggregated and becomes truth and a lot of times. It's not true and so it's like you know. I try kind of you know to get reasonable information out there with with stuff the backs up what I'm trying to say. Nice that's very good very good but follies for for post flight showing it it was it was. I'm glad you guys up up. You know happy to be on here and now we can get some food yeah. What's the press car your hotel and only yeah we're within a whole deal with Dennis. Sex which is like like is like somebody built press trip for me. WHO'S WE HAGGERTY. Non Acura just invited me just because you're you yeah because you're Bosie.
