Interview with Pete Evanow

"This is Robert Ross with another episode of cars that matter I'm here today with Pete Evans. I'm glad you could join us. Hello Pete is the author of Nissan's e fifty years of exhilarating performance. It was just published this year by motor books an imprint of Corto press I'm here to tell you I have the book and hand and among all of the recent automotive publications this one really stands apart congratulations on a great project pay. Thank you very much I. really appreciate that it was a labor of love I put it together fairly quickly. Because it was something that Nissan jumped on board at a last minute decision was interesting being really did make a big deal out of the twenty fifth anniversary and I don't know why. But it didn't really occur to them to do much about the fiftieth anniversary. Then all of a sudden somebody internally said we have to and that was Hiroshi Mariah. They got in touch with their licensing agency, which is emi and EMI contact and motor books motor books. Contacted me because I had written an earlier version of thirty fifth anniversary, and so we put this together really in a little less than a year. Notice. The forward is by Hiroshi tomorrow and obviously had a hand in recognizing that fifty years of Zina's as you call it Pete. You've got kind of an interesting career. Obviously, you're Z. Aficionado, but you're also a professor in the Department of Communications Cal State Fullerton probably as we talk about your book about. The history of the Z. Cars will maybe get into a little bit of the market speak that went along with essentially introducing a whole car a whole new concept to a whole new audience. That is the North American audience for whom a sports car from Japan was a brand new unthinkable concept back in nineteen seventy. I know this isn't your first. Z.. Car Rodeo either because it published Z thirty, five years of Nissan Sports car in two, thousand five. It's hard to imagine that the name plate is as old as it is for its thirty fifth anniversary. There was some pretty exciting things happening to but I guess related start at the beginning. Let's go back and look Z. Legacy from the start you and I are old enough to remember that back in the sixties and early seventies Japanese cars were by enlarge disregard I'm being charitable I'd say joke in some ways but they were no joke because of course Honda and Toyota essentially took over their respective markets and Dotson did the same but really the only sports car we had back in the sixties was the Toyota two. Thousand and that was such a rare esoteric piece of work that it almost doesn't count. Nissan did try. They had a sixteen hundred little sports car was a little convertible started as a sixteen hundred. They call it the fair lady in Japan of course, and then they brought it over here to the US, and then it became a slightly larger motor and they had it with the two liter the colored, the two thousand by remember that two thousand. Well, a friend of mine had a Canary Yellow One and I thought it was an amazing thing. It was right up there with any MGB, except that it was more reliable and. A grey little competitive car and Peter Brock raised it. So did Bob Sharp on the East Coast and so that kind of really established footprint if you will for Nissan at least from a motor sports standpoint and it gave them some credibility and it really provided the power I guess internally to look at a genuine sports car hardtop version and you can always thank Mr k. you talk Yama who pushed that card the Z. initially and he was here in America as the president of Nissan, USA and he went back to Japan. And we really have to have a sports car that is affordable and is something that everyone can afford here in the United States, and so he basically got the idea of democratising a sports car. You mentioned the Toyota two thousand GT was an incredible car but didn't really have the legs to expand. They didn't really bring it over here in significant quantities and it was a very expensive car as opposed to little roadsters. Remember Papa Bondra used to thousands for his driving school they were so good and reliable and relatively inexpensive the. Toyota was essentially unaffordable and it was fragile and even though it did a little bit of racing there just wasn't enough critical mass to really make it stick. Nissan. Really wanted to be the first to come in their Honda was here but they made really small throwaway cars to begin with them shoebox as I think the only thing smaller was at Subaru three sixty that looked like an egg with. Wales. And Nissan was ahead of their time of course, they were called Dotson then but they came out with their to forty and. Late sixty nine, but they also had a pickup truck and so those were two key markets that they used to go after slightly different audiences. But that's how they penetrated the US market at least initial. So many times a great name plate like the to forty comes about because of the vision of a single person or a tight team and you talk about the talk cut yama or Mr K. Katayama. Son was obviously an interesting guy and he must have been doing something. Right? He lived to be one hundred, five years old. That's a remarkable thing in and of itself you speak very fondly of in your book can you give us a little insight into what it took to get his own corporate colleagues superiors to buy into his crazy idea as a sports car for America I think you just a force and he just had such incredible passion. I had the pleasure of meeting with him several times and you'd him not only for my previous book but also speaking to him in several the Zekan's and car shows I mean he was very passionate. Loved people. As they said in his slogan Love Life Love People, you couldn't not like him I hate double negative but the fact is, is that I believe that his passion. and his persuasive skills were partially enough to demonstrate that he could sell this car United States and I think that's what it talked to convince his contemporaries, his colleagues in Japan that if he could have the opportunity to bring the Z. here in America, he would show them that that was the right car at the right time and he would be successful with it and they believed they were a little skeptical his colleagues in Japan but they obviously invested in the car and said, okay now it's up to you and your colleagues to make sure that this happens and it did

Wayne Carini from 'Chasing Classic Cars' and F40 Motorsports

"This is Robert Ross with another episode of cars that matter and today my guest is Wayne Carini who everybody knows Wayne Wayne's the host of chasing classic cars and incredibly Popular Program about finding gyms in the rough Wayne's also owner of f Forty Motor Sports Portland Connecticut I'm going to call that as day job and what a job it is Wayne Welcome to the program during us to be with. Obviously we're talking coast to coast I'm here in Los Angeles, and you're on the eastern side of the US and were doing this by way of Zoom. So it's not in the studio, but it allows some long distance conversation really in much the same way that you probably deal with. So many of the collectors nowadays things have certainly changed for all of us in the way that we communicate and weighed. The options are being held virtual car shows everything's changed slightly only. It's just for short periods. We'll talk about some of those things both the short-term effects maybe some of the long term positive benefits that come from this, it's hard to imagine there are any, but they're actually might be but instead of going forward in time, let's go back in time for a second. Let me just ask you the obvious. Question a lifetime love affair with cars, full classics, postwar sports, and racing cars, and probably even some modern collectibles. How did this car fixation begin when I was born into it? My father was founder the model a restorers club America back in nineteen fifty one year I was born cars were basically in our family from the beginning and then my dad restored cars for a living whether it was Duesenberg? Packard? As or buicks whatever they were my cousin built hot rods in a lean to next to my father's shop, and then a mile up the road was candy pools sports car shop where they had about every type sports car in the World Men Candy Pool is very famous race car drivers. So there was race cars, Ferraris Maserati. Oscars every type of car. That was rare stuff back then and I think that's how I got my ashes for everything to do with automobiles was brought up on every type of automobile. That's quite a broad swath. You Talk About Your Dad restoring everything from model as to Duisenburg's there couldn't be a wider gulf between those two and it's interesting. You mentioned that let's drill down into. That for just a second Wayne I often wonder the model a was such a ubiquitous machine, obviously the model t and then the model put Henry Ford on the map with a little company we call the Blue Oval but all the guys that actually treasure those cars and restore them and kept him alive for so many decades when they were well past. Their prime. It's very rare to see those cars any longer they sorta seems almost evaporated off the surface the earth they've become pretty popular again though in that era forcible way to get into the hobby and you could basically model for today from a catalog. So because of the ease of getting a apart the east of the restoration and the fun factor. With the driving aspect of it, I mean, these cars are a Lotta Fun to drive. Easy on reasonably priced. So we see model as actually their value and increasing summer bar. That's a great harbinger of things to come then because they really were sort of the cornerstone of the collector hobby back before guys can afford their full classics and all the fancy stuff from Europe. I starting going to Hershey with my dad and nine hundred, fifty, seven was six years old I think her she started either in fifty five, hundred, fifty, six does either liver fear second year, and then probably the third year I was there it became part. Of Our family, my dad created the model, a restorers club. He just come out of service in flight forty, eight and gentleman brought him a model a Ford to do some paint work on any restored to perfection for the gentleman brought it to local car show nine, hundred fifty and they wouldn't let him show it because they said that's just some old used car as nothing special and he got upset about that and went home and created the model, every stores America which thousands of people all over the world still supporting that club.

"Welcome cars the matter I'm Robert Ross and joining me today as Jackson Hall, President founder of the vintage air and recipient of the prestigious Robert. E Petersen lifetime. Achievement. Award. Welcome jackets. Good to have you here. Thank you Robert. Appreciate that glad to be here. You've kind of an entire industry that's really come to be known as performance air conditioning. Vintage Air was founded longtime ago now in nineteen seventy six primarily to serve builders who wanted to bill. Really Cool. Hot Rods Right. Talk about how you got to where you are I. Understand you started rich and early age well, yes. I started reading a hot rod magazine and it was hot rod magazine, an Rod and custom which were once at the time that everybody was reading. It had got me interested in old cars and I was about probably thirteen isn't it? Funny? We're in it always starts Yeah. Well thirteen years old I think so long story short my mom my dad was an air force and he was at this particular time was overseas along so she would take me out looking for old cars driving around we drove by one old junkyard that had some pretty nice cars and for Junkyard, and there was a little Mali sedan sitting right there and so. With that one and that started it really which pay fifty bucks hundred bucks for no one hundred dollars ran and drove off. There's a lot of must have been a nice car. It was decent in Iran in my mom felt that was important. So she said that'd be good one it actually Lebron's than I thought well, mode will be in their law anyway but. What did you put in that thing? Jag. Let Me Guess Flathead v Eight maybe something like that. Yeah. The first walk was a mercury by then the mercury and the flatheads kind of really on their last legs so cheap and a guy out of Mercury, my dad and military, and so I could go out to the base hobby shop at work on it therapies they have the tools and equipment wilmer stuff anyway he was out there and he was pulling that thing out and he was gonna put an old set I'm looking at that thing going he san now I gotta get rid of this thing and I'm going hey, wait a second I ask him what he'd takes Twenty. Five Bucks for so. Two fifty, five key begins Mercury, flat. It sounds like deal and boy that was the bee's knees back. Then there really was water fun car that must have been what happened after those formative years he did some college worker well. And as going along I kept working on our of data as we went along than mercury got lost and I put a pontiac over at bow the eight. Okay. Okay. And I use that to go to school I drove that car was my only car and so yeah I, I went to school studied industrial design. Guy Down College it was Vietnam era so. I joined ROTC after I got out of college I went right into the air force that was pretty ambitious endeavor especially at the time you fly planes her through for a little bit and then I did other stuff when emir force well, it sounds like an interesting stint obviously got out your passion for hot rods did not diminish in the lease no it. Always Hot Rod Guy, was there an a Ha moment that you had that said, he wait a minute I'm going to get serious about this. Well, when I got out of the Air Force, I had to make a decision. I think a lot of people that go in the air force consider staining and making a career out of thought about that for just a second and pretty much decided that I wanted to do. It always wanted to do I told my mom when I was about thirteen or fourteen. I told her not WANNA build parts for Cars I decided. Well, if I wanted to do that, this long should stick with that I started looking around. What can I do at that point? Pete shakes had started a year before that. There was a couple of chassis guys out there now and I've thought well I don't want to go jump in the middle something someone is already doing so look can I do that's new made any backup just a second I had started an air conditioning repair installation sinner right after I got out of the Service in seventy three head that stuff laying around so I thought hey, street rod nationals coming up here in August August load up the van take a bunch of stuff up there and made three unique parts to have up there for that deal were no condensers at that time in the condenser is the part that goes in front of the radiate sure that support that takes up space and. A hot rod that could be a sore thumb and of course, in those days, it was all about thirty four. It's some people would say it's still. Also, we'll get to that I designed and had a company make me condenser company up in Minnesota. Make me a condenser that was vertical so it would fit that format because there was nothing like that available number one that's right that narrow narrow grill and the yeah it had to fit just right? Yeah. There were narrow ones but they laid down the width of the cars that were going on now. That's right. So we did that and then nine designed a compressor mounting bracket for a small black Chevy because there were more sponsorship, he's going in at that time anything else. So the hoods were narrow on hot rod so it couldn't hang out sides like they did in the newer cars. So that was the second thing we did that bracket and then the third thing we did is I made a mold. been working with my hands long enough that I just figured hands I can make them all and I can make my own plastic evaporator out in. That's right and put the coralline and I'll have a unique evaporator to fit of thirty, two

"This. Therapy would be is very inappropriate. Why well because it may not be appropriate both economically or or even medically for patient but when they see it on tv they hear that this is the latest and the greatest in their mind. This is what should be used and that puts pressure on a physician to prescribe something. That maybe he or she so as not as a physician pressure from the patient that may have heard something that may be appropriate may be not appropriate. Maybe your specialty may not. Be Your specialty. You actually don't want to be challenged by your patient. I WANNA be challenged by PHI information. That's reasonable and rational. Not not information that is perpetrated by an insurance company with an economic motivation. And I agree. I want Steve to be challenged by the patient. Every time and I also want to be challenged by the I think most doctors do almost all of us like it when a patient requests a second opinion not defensive about it meet think. That's you know some seek satisfied. It's a great idea but you certain things require a certain degree of sophistication truly understand the value and I don't think you'll see very many advertisements for certain approach to a legal problem with technical information because people trained as lawyers. So I you know there's a certain benefit to having the public expe- extremely well informed and I'm all for that but I'm not sure television. Advertising for biologics is part of that. Well you know may maybe not just for a second Let's let's stick to the immunotherapy conversation for a minute Is that currently more expensive on. Its face then. A more Standard Care With with chemotherapy insider esp well first of all. It's usually chemotherapy plus immunotherapy. So it's not in place of and immunotherapy is very expensive again as I said. I'm totally for appropriate targeted tonight. When it's a pro certain conditions where it could be life saving. Somebody's GONNA use it for for immunotherapy sake alone or because it or because the the patient heard about it on TV so therefore it must be the thing that should be used but it sounds like you're you're resenting the idea that a patient would question. Oh I heard about this. It sounds cool. I want presenting the Insurance Company for putting it on TV. As if this is therapy that everybody should be asking for when they're not really educating the patient as to win it's appropriate when it's not there they're putting it on the patient to put pressure on the physician to prescribe this medication. Because it's supposed to be good because it's on tv not because hey what do you think? Dr. Is this right for me. They're making it sound like this. Medication is the panacea for what you have. Oh by the way If you listen very carefully to the fine points of all the possible complications that they rattle off you know it would almost tongue in cheek. We've cured cancer and killed the patient. Well I mean they they minimize those risks and they list him in about fifteen seconds a thousand different complications that can take place but they highlight. You know all the benefits so the patient is getting a a slanted view of not. Only what medication can in Cantu but also when it's appropriate. I wouldn't necessarily restrict the advertising of these of these products on TV as long as the rules about exactly how they were discussed in the commercial war fair exactly so it's not just the side effects that are there in. The small print said go very quickly by the announcer at the very end of the commercial. Immunotherapy is a great example. Because you have a certain tumor. Based upon the details of that tumor how aggressive it looks history logically and other biology of the tumor and score. That comes out of that. It might be a great therapy but if you don't have those criteria it might be actually deleterious you guys. It sounds like you don't WanNa be inconvenienced by your patient asking too many. I don't want them coming in with a misconception. You're coming from this tenant that the drug industry that the manufacturer of this medication. Strictly has altruistic notions for its medication. It's basically manipulating patients to be sales people for the drug industry that were resistant to. We're happy to talk to our patients to educate our patients to set them on the right path. That's what we do as physicians. But we don't want the. We don't want insurance companies to mislead patients and we think that from from advertising. There's a lot of misrepresentation that's taking place. You know what I'm going to ask us for just a minute. We're GONNA take a quick break. We'll be right back. Hi I'm Robert Ross.

Torquato Ben Talk you can never use the top end but you can use every pound foot torque from the very geico comfort or tight to the road gotTA gotTa go tight to the road. The CD pants feel is probably more important than spread out so far and wide as they say greenacres. You know. It's always interesting when you realize.

Your pants and the automobile absolutely go some of the seats that really really matter automatic or manual manual every day of the week. In fact I would have to say that until recently. I've never had an automatic and I only got that because I had to. They didn't offer it in a stick. So you're probably not Tesla Guy. Well I think it manual transmission allows somebody to really engage the driving experience grant other not as quick quick is the the paddle shift transmissions. But also you don't include the paddle shifter in the manual like the old Ferrari four thirty well if it shifts itself then. It's an automatic book damage. I think there's something about stirring gearbox that makes you a better driver it makes you think before you act in for me. That's half the fun of the experience. You're on the profile dare that I guess. That's one of the steering wheel or leather well. I'm a fan of the woods steering during wheel.

Exactly what was your favorite wooden. MM steering wheel. Favorite wooden steering wheel would have to be by Nardi. The Italians make them like nobody else. Okay sport motor racing racing is highly overrated it especially when you're as mediocre a driver as I am. I like sport. It's Kinda like baby bear's Porridge. It was just right. Mama's was too cold and daddy's was was too hot but sport mode is just right to explain it to our listeners and with the racing mode where disengaged all the computer mechanisms that we've basically gotten spoiled with.

My first car was a BMW. You'RE NOT TO BE WRONG ITEM EH. Exactly for a guy who who's never been without a Mercedes. I guess I'm probably going to get a little bit of blowback from you but you're actually driver you like driving. You know in all fairness this I think they are both remarkable cars and in fact alone car. I'd love to have in the stable. Just because it's such a sleeper and such an incredible utility vehicle is the latest Mercedes. Shady's am g wagon. Boy that he series wagon is phenomenal and it looks good. It drives well and he can throw a couple of fifty pound bags of fertilizer in the back and still have room for three cases of Chateau Lafitte. It doesn't get any better than that. Well okay Two wheels or four. Well that's interesting. I think for wheels ultimately because certain age one has to make concession to frailty and the brevity of human life but as a younger man to nobody listens to podcast. That will understand Stan. Then well as a young man to wheels and I still get dewy eyed whenever I look at the motorcycles that are sitting stationary like floor lamps in my studio I mean my old do Khadi Might Marini so many the bikes that have gone through my hands. All harleys that I built I missed missed them dearly and I missed the experience. We had some of our best times writing wheel.

And and every Sunday we would be driving through the hills of Santa Monica and just had the best time to.

You sell that car or did you know I gave it away. I mean these. These cars are just because they had to have a purple car takes a select group of people. That would be willing to buy that. Well now let's make clear that it was an important maserati color from the eighties and historic color. Called Bore Dove Toria which was used for the quarter report they series three and historically some of the race cars no doubt you had a philosophy philosophy behind. I just remember what it was like to be in it. Well it was definitely quite a contrast to what you were saying about being seen in a car. And that's part of what you look for in a design nine. An automobile is an opportunity to express oneself. It says a lot about a person when they choose a Mercedes Benz over a BMW or a Cadillac over Alexis Alexis. There are reasons that all these cars exist because they're different people for whom they are made and certainly in the world of sports cars as they like to say in the business. It's an aspirin every seat. That's why some people gravitate toward the Talian machines. Some people gravitate per German machines British machines. The good news of course is is that you don't have to have just one and of course you had quite a few at one time when we used to share a toy Shak yes a long before the term man cave came around. I remember you thought it was a good idea and I heartily agreed to build out a quiet very under the radar space which was is actually a warehouse. Yep At least from the outside from the outside I actually measured at once and it turned out to be about forty five hundred square feet upstairs downstairs but which we actually really filled up pretty good though it was it was. It was actually filled to bursting. I think we probably had as many as what maybe sixteen cars in there. At one time and bikes you could compare in contrast look at one car and look at a non. You had the classy cars that required knowledge and expertise and a designed sensibility and right right and junk like a convertible like a Rolls Royce. Drop in and around the Ferrari spider and stuff like that. I'm sitting in between the spot for a minute. What's what's that Ferrari or Lamborghini? We all know that's a question that I would've answered differently back in two thousand six than I would answer today at. The time is certainly in the early two. Thousands Ferrari was unquestionably the standard bearer of Talian automotive technology. They certainly had the heritage and history. They were far and away. More popular. Lamborghini has done a remarkable job the following decade the one that immediately precedes the show in developing automobiles. That are in every way state of the art. The remarkable thing too is that to Ferrari and Lamborghini though they may be in many ways on par are are anything but similar personalities as different as night and day. And that's what's remarkable is. Both of the cars have place. Both of the cars actually share many of the same owners owners now used to be that you could never imagine a Ferrari owner even considering having upset a Lamborghini keys in his pocket but now the great thing is that there's room mm for both in the same garage. You've owned some really special cars but you did have one car that you kind of Jones dafter for many years you acquired wired us then did a whole lot of work on it brought it up to pebble and all. I can remember in the toy shack. Is You had a statue. That was anatomically anatomically correct. A bull is yes probably the most hideous and reviled trophy among any of the car clubs. Extent the Lamborghini club America which I dearly love. It's running owned by my friend. Andrew Romanowski has nice group of members. Now do a fantastic job. That's my pitch for the club. Everybody Buddy should join it even. If you don't own one of the cars they give out a perpetual award at something that the winner of the Lamborghini Club Concord recieve people's People's choice. Well it was essentially best in show award. I think that year when we first brought the car out at took people's choice best in show and certainly best in class. That was a real honor. But I got to take this award home and it was the grossest thing you've ever seen bronze bull weighed like two hundred pounds right and had a three three piece set on it. I can't believe I kept that for a year and gave it back and of course the car the trophy and it's still in circulation in some other. Poor Poor Devil has received at all about imprinting like I was saying before bill I saw my first four hundred. Gt back in nineteen sixty seven or so on the St Zipper car. A lot on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. My Dad had taken me there and we we looked at cars. And Hey actually a little brownie camera and he snapped a picture of me leaning against the finger of one. You still have the picture I still do and that imprint. Just kinda wouldn't go away but the Lamborghini did it more than any other. And of course it's through the ensuing doing decades a rather ignored and reviled car among the Talian offerings. Certainly the mirror and the Taj and any number of four toddling mind find the typical Lamborghini race car. Oh No not at all triangle. It was the last of the MOHICANS. It was the last car that came out of courtesy. Our touring of Milan Carl Lee Lee sender. Looney was the designer. And it was released. Sort of the hearken back to the Golden Age of Italian coach building but it for me it was a a real historic orrick reference point. And I think that's why I appreciate it so much. And how many times did you put it into. I'm going to call it Rehab but restoration. Well it it was restored initially in two two thousand two. I acquired a year earlier and shop run by a fellow named Gary Bobble. If that a year long restoration it took some awards immediately when we took up to Monterey and then subsequently it's been back in Rehab for for a couple of years very recently and then we took a number of awards and twenty eighteen up in Monterey Array couple of best in show and best classic quail and so forth. It hasn't been on the lawn of Pebble beach yet but maybe someday so you still have it. Oh I still. That's a keeper for their sure. A lot of my wish I still had. I think one never really realizes how much and when Mrs something until it's gone whether it's a person in your life or even a material surreal object like a car. Certainly I've got a lot of hand wringing and GNASHING of teeth to be done when I think about some of the ones that got away. Well we're GONNA take a quick break Robert when.

"Quick story way back when we had been invited onto the USS aircraft carrier. Carl Vinson which is a nuclear powered aircraft carrier was someplace in the middle of the Pacific and Robert. Denying a few of we're friends from the company. Were lucky enough to be flown out there. Having arrested landing on top of an aircraft carrier spend the night and I tell you this story because my favorite moment was when we were given a tour of the boat as they called it which had fifty two hundred people living on board that was asleep on the water. Uh We walked into some of the barracks and one of the guys. One of the sailors suddenly stood up saluted and said woman woman on board and everybody stood up and saluted and that was Robert with his hair down to the middle of his back and but by the way he was the best stay had seen in a while. Well it does get lonely out at sea but they were out there serving our country hats off to them. It was really amazing experience. Actually take off half way it really. Was You talk about celebration. And some of these cars. Whether it's regarding Kyron or Tesla one hundred with the battery pack. There's no such thing as acceleration. Jeez Jeez compared to be chatting shot catapulted off a deck. That's quite an experience. Remember when they actually made us sit through about a half hour. Seminar are on how we should treat the takeoff and what they said they were gonNA counted down and how we had to put our hands. You sit backwards on this plane and we had to put our hands inside the seat belt gloves because otherwise our hands would hit the seat in front of us we took off backwards and we would break our risk risk on the seat in front of us and we listen to that and we were like. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah we can. We have a beer and anyway they put us on this thing they give us the signal they give us three seconds to prepare. We stick our hands in this thing and this thing takes off and all of us experienced what it's like to have our is actually leave our head and we all turn to each other and just kind of went. WHOA yeah looked like rat fink? It was quite something and then of course you think about what the guys that flew the SR seventy-one at mach three or whatever must have had to deal with so we were in a mail plane at the time. Yeah exactly really quite something. I'm going to go back to the Maserati because you had a Maserati Quattro portait forte customized. Now that was actually a grand sport. That was ruined Maserati. Had just come back country but then you had a convertible to Bill Iota Grant Sport Spider if I'm not mistaken and it. It was a fine little pair of cars and before anybody really new Maserati. It was kind of not the household name that it is today. And I like that Grand Sport had had the essentially a Ferrari. Three six exte- V8 in it and from the F.. Three sixty in remarkable car. I remember that when the President of the company came to me and said have you seen the colors that Robert chose for that car. We all actually it kind of boomerang back on him because then president of the company in Italy was visiting us.

"Welcome to cars that matter. This is Robert. Ross today we get to talk one on one with Bill Kurtis host Kirk. Oh media's meet me in the Middle Bills Co hosted with me on this podcast on occasion but today it's really just the two of US friend to friend. Welcome Bill May. Hey Robert how you doing. It is nice to sit down with you for a change. It's as great but Robert. I've always been so impressed with your design sensibility. Everything whether how you keep your home every aspect of your life the way you dress the watches you wear the shoes that you wear well from the neck down. I try my best bill from the neck up. I only look at the neck up Robert to what I want to know is. What's the difference for you between the design of a car that you WANNA drive or the design of car that you want to collect a sometimes? It's just a matter looking at them hanging on the wall like you would do with a fine painting or putting them on a pedestal as you would do with a piece of sculpture and I know there are a lot of people who disagree with that sentiment I mean people people constantly disparaged the garage queen mentality in other words a car that so perfect too campy driven on the street but at a certain point. I think it's fair to say that a cars served its initial initial purpose and like a championship race horse. It's time to put it out to pasture and let it enjoy itself. It's dotage in the dotage of some of these. Old Cars is truly on the a show field and not necessarily saying that. That's a bad thing at all. I car that mattered that you owned. Did you buy to drive or did you buy to collect. While the the first car that mattered that I bought two drives by very first car and the only reason that it mattered was because it was my first car and something that I've quired for all of twelve hundred dollars with my hard earned money. That was real money and it was a little. BMW Sixteen hundred and certainly since then the sixteen hundred two thousand two series has become a very important landmark in the history of BMW and really put him on the map but if figures that you were that sophisticated back then the rest of us were soldering lawnmower engines onto stingray bicycle and that was our transportation. You're buying 'em W sixteen hundreds well. It was certainly an unknown back in the Stone Age but for me it was a great way to sort of understand. What kind of fun could it'd be had with a low powered car that was light and Nimble and really took advantage of some of our roads and southern California thousand dollars cost by well it was actually twelve hundred? That was a lot of money worked at a picture frame shop. In my later high school years it was actually a picture frame shop that also doubled as a head shop. I did the picture frame owner in his sister ran the paraphernalia section. funnily enough I think it was probably the only kid that never smoked weed back then. I was too busy studying and painting and doing all sorts of things that most kids probably weren't doing so might my first car was a buick wildcat. Nineteen sixty two four forty five four barrel put about three. BMW BE A sixteen hundreds inside that thing inside the trunk. Actually right. Our record was holding twelve people in the car now. Not Everybody was actually in the car. We lived John Long Island and we would go to Jones beach. These were too long bench seats so it was very easy to have four people in the front seat and four people in the backseat. And then you had of course the back panel behind the back seat convertible top would come down and so we would go down. Brook Parkway from Garden City Long Island to Jones speech with twelve people in the car and we would wave at the police as we drove by them on the Metro Parkway with twelve people in one car and I had look like a parade float on Madison Avenue. That's awesome actually. That car was in the parade in gardens to the one point or another. And we're moving right along. Let's great the great thing about about that car is. It didn't look like anything that was going to be able to build up any speed and this thing was so long just a huge car and back then at Roosevelt field we would have match races in. You've seen stuff like that in old movies. And whatever but you'd have your pink slip with you. My Pink Slip Slip. Cost me five hundred twenty five dollars for that car. That was my investment. Was Real money but this car. That looked like it really couldn't move at all was incredibly really fast now back then we were using Sonoko to sixty dinosaur gasoline. And you'd go through basically a tank of gas in a mattress that would be you know two miles long straightaway and this car would beat the other cars and they were like. GTO's they were all these Camaros that were all hopped popped up. They looked really impressive. Could not touch this car and so this was a lot of fun. The problem was every time you had a couple of these races my harmonic balance. I would go out and we would have to replace that on this car. Probably six or seven times and it was about a twelve hour job that-that's knock taint of heart but anyway. That was a great car for me. But I'm going to jump ahead to a time where I was in an Italian restaurant woodland hills and I looked outside the front window window and there was a guy dancing around the portion parking lot. I wasn't exactly dancing. I think I was moving quickly leap from car to car because I was trying to remember certain details and the only way to really do it was to sort of instantly compare and contrast but what you had to leap between one car and the other to be able to keep those images fresh in your mind you were there for quite a while and I remember seeing you the next morning. Finding out that that it was you and finding out that that day you were ordering your first brand new off the line push old habits die hard and I've done it a few times time since May have a way of getting under your skin. There's no question about it to tell us about that. No Gosh I always the color because that was just crazy. That was an interesting time. In Porsche's nine eleven Kevin Lineage. The nine sixty four was the model series and it had been introduced in Europe in nineteen eighty nine came to America in nineteen ninety and bright about that time Porsche. Russia was in really dire straits. I believe in Nineteen ninety-one. They sold something like sixteen thousand cars which is a paltry sum and certainly not enough to keep the company and business but I bought a new ninety one career to and it was a turquoise green metallic the only one that I've ever seen then or sense and a gorgeous thing that was one of the cars I sure miss. So what was your next after. was that the Maserati. Did that come next. No no I had I think after the Green Porsche avoid things sort of melt together. You know you get old. And all of of a sudden the decades melt together. Not just scary for those of you listening. Who didn't know Robert Back then? He had hair down to the middle of his back jet black. You didn't pay me enough to.
