The Left's A-Team Fact Checkers Emerge to Dissect '2000 Mules'

"Left is really getting desperate on 2000 mules. They started out by unleashing their fact checkers. And these are 20 and 30 somethings, and they thought, okay, yeah, we'll shut this down, you know, but of course these are people who know nothing about geo tracking. Geo tracking is not very reliable. And they don't know much about election law. And so they had these clumsy first salvos that were easily repelled. In fact, even people who had nothing to do with politics would say things like, wait a minute I lost my cell phone in some tall grass and I was able to pinpoint its exact location within inches. So this idea that you can't, all this technology doesn't work, it's like laughably absurd. And so suddenly the left realized, oh my gosh, you know, we've obviously deployed our B team and that's not gonna be enough. We need to unleash the a team. So the a team is now coming out. The a team is The New York Times, which is evidently trying to do some sort of a hip job. They haven't published it yet. Whoop Dee do. I mentioned The Washington Post, which I'll be discussing in depth tomorrow, a Philip bump in The Washington Post. There's an article in NPR, which I'll be dealing with. Tomorrow probably. But I want to talk about an article in the Atlanta journal constitution, which is focusing on Georgia. And I want to use it as a case study of just classic deception at all levels. Title of the article. Georgia investigation dispels allegations highlighted in 2000 mules. Let's just take in the title for a minute. You think you're going to get some kind of refutation of the allegation in 2000 meals that 242 mules. Have been identified through cell phone geo tracking, visiting ten or more drop boxes each and a bunch of these people are seen on video. Not all of them, but a bunch of them where the video is available. Now, the subtitle of the article ballots were legally delivered for family members. Okay? And then I started reading the article. The article it turns out is about one guy. And I'm going to read surveillance video showed a man pull up in a white SUV and insert 5 absentee ballots into a gwinnett county Dropbox. An investigation revealed he was delivering ballots for his family, which has allowed under Georgia

The Torture and Imprisonment (and Love) of Richard Wurmbrand

"I'm sitting here in the studio with Todd nettleton. He is with voice of the martyrs. Actually, he's the host of voice of the martyrs radio on a thousand plus stations, you were just mentioning before, I want to get to your book when faith is forbidden. But you were just mentioning that when Richard finally gets out of prison, the communists, I mean, so wicked that he had been tortured, he'd had tuberculosis. So you said when you get out of prison, they told him, you know, your body is so broken that maybe you've got a year left. Yeah. There's so many amazing things about this story. The going rate for a political prisoner at that time was $1500 to the Romanian government. The price for Richard was $10,000. So he was considered a high value target. And like you say, will the doctors examined him? He'd had TB. He'd been tortured again and again and again. They said pastor Rembrandt, you know, you probably only have a year left. God allowed him 30 more years and he traveled the entire world, telling the story of his own torture, his own persecution, but then also, hey, there are still pastors behind the iron curtain. There are still pastors in those prisons. And really, the voice of the martyrs was founded when Christians like you and I, we hear that, and we say, okay, well, how do we help them? That's really how the voice of the martyrs was founded was to be a way to help you. And so let's be clear. There are people all around this world right now, imprisoned, suffering, persecuted, tortured for their faith, killed for their faith, we need to know that. We need to stop pretending like Christianity is my pathetic little church in the suburbs. Folks, we don't deserve to live in a country where we get to drive in our SUV to our church, whatever there are people around the world suffering. That's the

Despite Democratic Opposition, Drilling Is Reviving in Texas

"Drilling, oil drilling is picking up steam in Texas. And that is actually very good news for all of us. It actually should be good news for the Biden administration, but they don't see it that way. In fact, I just saw Biden and he was saying, we've kind of got to get away from this kind of addiction to oil. And we got to kind of get off this oil kick that we've been on. So these guys are dug in ideologically against fossil fuels. And I guess because of their climate enthusiasm, but what's happening is that even though Biden has done his best to suppress drilling. He has shut down, as you know, the Keystone pipeline, he in fact, to the point where he was willing to approve a German pipeline. A pipeline connecting Russia and Germany. So he's willing to allow abroad what he was not willing to allow at home, also blocking drilling on federal land, making it more difficult to get permits, and so on. And so as a result, what happens is you have an international crisis, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, you have the United States then being in a sense politically compelled to not buy Russian oil. You begin to see a contraction in the supply, so naturally the price of oil begins to go up against a skyrocket. And people become really annoyed, especially people for whom it's not something that easily affordable to spend $80, a $100 to fill up your car or your SUV.

"We love halifa, but not everything needs to be elephant. You know, just like not everything needs to be LS, by the way. So this is 500 horsepower, a little three liter twin turbo could be kind of interesting. Now I don't have the full specs and it's at all wet sump, can there be a dry sum version? What's the weight? Is it lighter weight? And but it's certainly seems interesting. Seems like a great baseline package for damn sure. Yeah. You know, when the news came out about this, people were like, yeah, let's go ahead and drop that in the Jeep Wrangler right away and get rid of that current what is it? The pentastar V 6. It's like, yeah, we can probably do away with that. How about these spy shots on the Ferrari SUV? Was it other than that frontal shot? There's a rear. There's a rear. I don't know that it's like a whole profile, but there's like a front and rear. I just giving you shot with their new muscle car. Yeah, yeah. Pure song way, pure song way. I think that's the name of the Ferrari. Pure song. Excited to see it. Listen, it's gonna have to perform. I mean, Ferrari actually, I do like the look of it. I think it is kind of interesting. Everyone's going to that real slim kind of headlight thing. But look, we just talked about the earth and we just talked about the lotus SUV, we talked about the Aston Martin DBX. They're doing the 7 O 7. It's going to be the fastest and highest horsepower. And it will be, but we don't know for how long because I'm pretty sure Lamborghini is doing an Evo. Like they did on the hurricane, hurricane. And so they're going to, they're going to try that one outfit. So Ferrari is going to have to fall into this. Into this playing field that's been kind of established or getting pretty established pretty quickly. You know, it's kind of interesting. The thought they are also is Ferrari SUV, it's going to be frowned upon, but also it's going to be praised. I mean, Brown to the same, it's going to go through the same battery of bitchy, right? But they set the fucking bar part my Friends on that one. On the performance, and before that, but Portia and the Cayenne, people were like, oh, that's going to hurt the Porsche. I don't think it hurt 9 11 sales at all. No, you know, they still keep 9 11. I don't know whether they're doing 10,000, something like that, ten, 15,000 a year, I don't know. It's still fairly exclusive. I think the SUV is a smart move for Ferrari because Ferrari as a company, certainly as a publicly traded company, wants to increase revenue, grow the business, how do you do that while keeping all of their cars still exclusive and the waiting list and the whole thing? How? You come out with something completely new like an SUV and say, great, well, maybe we can do 3000 or 4000 or 5000 a year. Well, increase the capacity of our entire lineup, our profit margins, everything without hurting our sports cars and our GTs. And other car companies have done it successfully. You know, again, namely Portia. So why not have a Ferrari SUV? I'm kind of interested in interested to see it. I thought the FF was a cool Ferrari when I drove that. And then it was the GT four lusso was after that. I don't think I drove that one. But having sort of the four seater hatchback and all wheel drive, it's like, yeah, that's close to SUV ish almost at this point. Now we're just adding some doors and maybe lifting it a little bit, but the idea of kind of breaking the ice with consumers with that car. I thought it was cool. That's a cool car to drive. I love driving the FF, by the way. I thought that was fun. I don't know how successful the car was or how reliable it is. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Although, I'm pretty sure Ken lingenfelder has one or maybe still has one. And he's like, no, that's great. That's my winter car. When I need all wheel drive, to the FF. He goes, I can't drive Corvettes all the time. And then, yeah, so he loved that car. And I think he had like his Maserati sedan or something out here and like when he had a place in Palm Springs. When he'd come out and he'd tell us. He's not normal. He's not normal. Talk about good dudes. He's a good dude. He's you don't make him any better than that. I can't wait to catch up with him again and see what he thinks of a Ferrari SUV. He's got to be on the list. You know, they're gonna send them, hey, Ken, you don't have one of these. You know, yeah, that's a good question. We gotta reach out to cannon and find out if he's interested in the Ferrari SUV. It's gotta be on his radar for sure. There are a few people that you just say their name and smile continuously. He's one of them. He's definitely he's definitely one of them. Let's.

"To car cast, I'm Matt the moderator, Deandre here with Bill Goldberg. How you doing? Oh, I'm just kidding, man, trying not to get blown away by these Gale force winds out here in Texas. You know, we've had a little bit of we had pretty good rain for a day and then it was super windy The Rain came in and then it just blew away and just allows we don't get that much right now here so all we do is go, all right, when it rains, go to all the warehouses and figure out where all the leaks are. So man it made it last week well last week like three days ago, it felt like California again. I was driving back from downtown and I see smoke start smelling smoke and I get flashbacks of evacuated down in San Diego wildfires out here in Texas. Yeah, well hopefully hopefully nothing bad. No, it's minuscule in comparison to being an opportunity. Yeah, to be out here, sure. Yeah, when they say a thousand acres burns out here, it's like 20,000 200,000 out in California. Yeah. So a lot of stuff happening in the car news typical in the car news world is a bunch of announcements for cars are going to come out in ten years from now. But anyway, it's exciting anyway. It's so exciting to see what's going on. That's good news. On the forefront of what's happening. On the way in though, I had a nice conversation with everybody, John uris, from helium turbo. And we've been going back and forth for a while, and he's been working on some turbo kits, the big thing is emissions legal testing. It's very expensive. You pay pass or fail, you pay. It's like $10,000 minimum. So these are these are big undertakings for a lot of small companies out there. Yeah, Goldberg's garage included, so and just going through all of the conditions of during the testing and has to be a perfect 73° and sbc level and it has all this stuff. And he's in Albuquerque, New Mexico. And so he's got weather and he's got altitude and he's like so I can do so much, but then they have to move the whole operation to California, not just for the testing, but just to finish the tuning and the kit and everything to even think you're going to pass a mission because you can't even do it now. So it's a big, it's a big task that he's taking on, but he is going to end up. He's feeling pretty good about having some twin turbo kits come out for cars and trucks that will be emissions legal and really be one of the only companies out there. There's some big supercharger manufacturers that are getting it done, but those companies are massive and they have other sources of income that are not just a small enthusiast company. So it's interesting, it's exciting. We've been doing a bit of work on the Mustang Mach one, Richard way. He's the best. He's been helping us out. So we sent the car down to Magna flow. We did the exhaust on it, but the valve needed adjustment. The open sea exhaust, they fixed that. And I said, hey, man, I got to get this car over to Anderson composites. So Richard said, fine, I'll drive it there myself. So from oceanside, back up to like the LA area that I don't know how he got a ride home and then it just so happened that the day he was driving it up there. We just had this pouring rain and he texted me and he's like, I've got to pull over this rain is crazy. And I was like, you know, I was just teasing. I was like, that's what makes it fun. Don't be a baby. He's like. He's like, I'm in your car on pilot sport cup twos with a race alignment and this car is all over the road. So you had to pull over for a minute to let The Rain die down, which happened pretty quick because it was so windy. But got the car over to Anderson, they've been sending me some photos, test spending all the carbon fiber. Luckily, everything has been fitting perfectly. So the car is going to go to the Grand Prix of Long Beach. It's coming up soon. It will debut some carbon fiber pieces there, not all of the pieces, but it's going to have some there. And then I think Magna flow is taking the car back, Richard wanted it for some event that I don't even know. And then it goes back to Anderson composites to go to fabulous forge forever, which is a great show out here, which I won't be able to make will be coming back from the trans am race Laguna Seca. And then I think pony at the bike or something like that or some other event. And then it'll all sort of come to a head at sema, right? So the car is going to go to sema. It's going to be the Anderson composites booth. We're excited about that. But we were trying to figure out all of these events that were going to, how do we just add a little bit more to the car each time. So everything comes together at sema. We've got HRE wheels coming in. We've got some of the carbon fiber pieces coming in, knock on wood, potentially in a mission's legal twin turbo kit, hopefully that could be exciting. And a couple of other pieces. So that's kind of the plan right now. There are betting board and Vegas as to which one of those will actually go on. You know, I feel good about Long Beach, right? Because the car is, the car can go to Long Beach without all of the parts on it. So that's good. So. Yes, you're right. Are we going to start pulling pulling odds, taking odds on will it go to sema? Yeah, I feel good about that. Will it go to simo with everything the way we wanted to go? Does she? I don't know on that, but we're trying to not overdo the car, right? So of course, we drop it off into Anderson composites and Dave Davis over there who's been working on it. He's like, car looks good. It's a little wet. We'll get it all cleaned up, detailed out. We're bringing to Long Beach. You know you're missing a door panel, right? I was like, oh yeah, I was working on the audio system. I took the door pedal off. So let me get the door panel back out to you guys at some point. And by the way, little things that were running into is the rear deck lid has that blacked out panel in between the taillights. And it has the Mach one logo on it. And if we just want the Mach one logo, we put it on the carbon fiber piece. Well, you can't buy just the logo from Ford. You have to get it with the deck lid panel. And it's a $1000. So I was like, all right, well, maybe we could pull the logo off the original piece or something like that. So this is where our friends at galpin auto sports help out because they've done a bunch of these. And they're saying, bring us the panel and we think we can do it. And because they have guys that have done it four or 5 times on all of the other cars, right? Maybe not the Mach one because it's so new. But the bullet and the GT and the other stuff. So they're like, yeah, it's typically this, and this is how we do it. And so that might, that might be good, but yes, to add to add to this, not a seama crunch, but we have time would be, we're gonna debut the carbon fiber hood with the hood scoop for the Mach one that's functional and has a ram air effect. In all carbon fiber, but we want it to be different at sima. So we went back to the idea of doing the Mach one is the fighter jet gray. It has like the black stripe on the hood in the middle, right? Where it's two shades of black with an orange stripe in the middle. So it's like a matte and a gloss. Part of the appearance package. It looks very cool. And I was like, oh, let's paint the hood fighter jet gray. Let's do the first black stripe in the orange, and then the big center black stripe, let's leave that carbon.

Trish Addresses Inflation and Gas Prices

"Like to just quickly get back to this inflation issue because I heard some policy ideals that came out of Joe Biden last night, but none of them fortunately, I hope. Do not have a chance of becoming a reality. You look at what's going on right now in the stock market. And of course, people are trying to digest all of this news. It's coming to us out of Europe, you've got Powell that spoke the Humphrey Hawkins testimony. They're on Capitol Hill and Paul's indicating you know what we're going forward with this. We're going to raise rates this month. I think you've got to under the circumstances with all this massive inflation. There's a chance that maybe he doesn't follow through with as big a rate cut or as many rate hike. Hike, I should say hike. Paul and Joe Biden there were as many rate hikes as anticipated, but we'll see. We'll see how this all shakes out. I do think it's time. I mean, it was time a year ago for Paolo to do something. So this to me is a positive positive element in terms of gas prices though and what their effect on the economy will be. They're going to be significant. I actually went to fill up my gas pump. I drive one of those really offensive gas guzzling SUVs. You're not supposed to have, but I've got one. I've got one, and I filled up the tank and it was over $4 a gallon, and I noticed that. I was talking to the guy and we were chatting about it and he's like, yeah, and this is despite the SPR, but you know, the SBR. That's gonna last you no time at all. I'm sorry, you can release all those strategic reserves, which by the way, Donald Trump bought a really low price. Joe Biden and company were accusing him of just trying to prop up the energy industry at the time. But it was pretty smart to buy it right when it was $10 a gallon, as opposed to a $110 a gallon, which is where we're heading. In fact, I would argue it would probably be one 30 a gallon, possibly one 50 a gown in the relative near future, which could translate into, I don't know, $9, a gallon that the gas pump, it's not inconceivable to see gas prices more than double from where they are right now.

"So the one that I drove this defender 90 had the nice audio system. It had the jump seat in the middle. It seemed fine. I think it was like 62 or 64,000. It wasn't an $85,000 version. It was 60 something thousand. Yeah. So it's an interesting option when you're cross shopping those things. I think the one ten is a little bit more, but I think the four door vehicles. I always had a used car lot looking at a car for a friend. It's a San Francisco. And, you know, they had the Jeep Gladiator, the Ford or Gladiator there, and they're like, this thing's used. It was hardly it was used. But it was like, it's $50,000 for the used price. You know, for a four door Gladiator black. Yeah, but look, you are nowadays. Yeah. Yeah, so I don't think this is outlandish pricing. This is why we're not having the same conversation with the G wagen or something, which I don't know what that starts $90,000 works its way up. And besides, I don't know that I've ever seen one of those things go off road. I think you can use the defender 90 and have a great time going off road. Or if you live in weather, Bill. It's an interesting option. That's why the neighborhood that's why the neighbors got the first one ten minutes. Yeah, see, the one ten I do like, and I'm excited about driving the V8 version. I'd like to see that thing which is sort of a badass, a big power engine in it. All right, before we wrap up, I just got this note. Again, as we're waiting for orders to open on Corvette Z06, because I'm very interested in it. I don't know if I can get one or can afford it. But it sounds like march 24th. March 24th, the order books are going to start to open. I don't know how they're rolling it out. I don't know if there's going to be deal markups. I don't know if you're on the email list if you just get the email saying you can order. But there's going to be no shortage of options for the vehicles for the 2023 Corvette C 8 and the Z06 version. Here's a couple of notes. 14 exterior color options, 11 exterior striping options. 21 interior treatment options. So you will be able to and more. The list goes on and on. There's just going to be so much you're going to be able to do. To the point where you're like, God, I hope I don't see two Z06 is exactly the same because with all these different options. I do kind of like this. This kind of goes back to cars in the 60s and going, hey, you can start to check off all these little boxes. You know, Porsche still does it now, but the thing with Porsche is you go in and you're like, oh, sticker price, you know, the base price is 78,000. And by the time you're done, you're at a $112,000. You can add $30,000 at a heartbeat and just options. But breaks in a turbo upgrade. Yeah. And look, maybe it makes sense for something like Chevrolet keeping the Corvette around using it as a halo car, knowing that the sales numbers are, you know, fairly low. Certainly not Chevy Silverado selling 800,000 trucks. 850,000 trucks, you're going to sell a few thousand Corvettes. How do you make money off the vehicle? Will you offer 97 different options on it and you charge a little bit of money for each one of those things. And then every $65,000. Yeah, every $65,000 Corvette becomes a $90,000 Corvette with profit margin. And you know what, it's something oddly okay with that because it gives us the customer choice. You know, hey, I want to get a base Corvette once been 65 grand, and I'm going to get all the performance that I want out of it. Or I really want to start to personalize it. I'm going to spend 75, 85, $95,000 for the car. So I guess that's kind of the thought process on it. You don't have to have the same one as anybody else. You could do what you want with it. But man, the more I read up on that car and the Z06, I read up on that engine, it seems like a really, really impressive car that it's not going to be able to last very long. Because doing the naturally aspirated flat plane crank, I think is going to be in the Z06 for a year, two years, three years. I don't think it's going to be able to go much longer than that. They've got to do the hybrid version. They got to do more efficient versions. Maybe a ZR1 will come out. That will be a hybrid or the hybrid will be separate in a zero one will be turbo. I don't think they're going to get supercharged versions. They probably already have all of them. Don't kid yourself. They do. So, I mean, what we hear is there's a base C 8 Corvette. There's a Z06 with the naturally aspirated flat plane crank V8. There's going to be a hybrid version of the Corvette that not necessarily meant to be more than the Z06 performance wise, but more than the base C 8. And then possibly a ZR1 version, which would be turbos instead of supercharger, but probably not the flat plane crank V8 version, because they want to make those cars different enough, right? Go, hey, if you want naturally aspirated, you get the cool naturally aspirated engine. If you want turbo, then you get maybe the base C 8 engine, but with turbos, and ultimately more horsepower. I don't know, 750 horsepower. And then I don't know where the hybrid version is going to fall in that performance wise, but I assume you're saying, hey, hybrid now brings in all wheel drive, right? Maybe we've got electric motors on the front, like the NSX. So you got to be a lot more to pull people away. Yeah. That's my fault. And also, if you think of all the different variations of like 9 11 and some of the other cars like that, well, this is Chevrolet's way of going, well, if we do several variations of this car, we continue to build halo cars and we can make more money by having all of these options available..

"Defender. The defender 90. So I drove the Land Rover defender one ten, which is the four door version. That was a little bit of a while ago. I think we got into that. I grabbed the defender 90, the two door version. The shorter wheel base, it's quite a bit shorter. It's about 17 inches. Shorter gives it more Jeep size. We're talking about the Land Rover. I'm driving the Land Rover defender 90. The two door version. They lopped 17 inches out of it and they shorten it up quite a bit. So now it's a little bit more two door Jeep sized two door Bronco size. So if you're into that type of configuration, this is interesting. It's, I believe, the three 95 horsepower V 6. Now, they are going to have a V8 version. I think the V8 version is just in the four door, the defender one ten. I'd love to drive that because I think that engine is still fantastic. A lot of fun. I just drove it in the Jaguar F type SVR as well. The 550 horsepower. I'll tell you this about the defender 90. You've got a really want the short wheel base for the angle of approach and dissent and the shorter wheelbase for off roading. It's very tall. It's very short in length. Maybe it's a less expensive competitor to the G wagen. So knowing what you're buying, if you're getting it for that particular reason and maybe it's off road capability, then I understand it. But as far as livability every day, just kind of driving it, it's a pain in the ass. You can't get into the backseat. It just turns out the utility version part of it is not that great. The four door I understand, people can go in and out of the back. There's room in it. The two door version, you pull up on this handle to flip the seat forward, but then you got to hit the little electric button and you've got to watch that thing slide and it's sitting there going, all right, keep going, keep going, keep going. Keep going. Keep going. Keep going. To get into the back, right? And you're like, well, you can't just jump in and out. You got to sit there and hold the button. It's a little bit tougher. And then when you go around in the back, you open up the back door, the storage area on the back of the SUV is pretty small. And when you fold down the seats, it definitely gives you more room, but there's a brace that goes across. It's about three or four inches tall. So if you wanted to slide something flat, that's not going to happen. It's literally like an aluminum bar on the bottom. So you've got about, I don't know, 18 inches, maybe 20 inches. When you open the door, you see the back of the rear seats, and then below it is like this aluminum bar. This aluminum brace. So if you want that space fine. But if you fold down the seats, that little aluminum bar doesn't go anywhere. So that's a little weird to not be able to fold something flat, but I guess if you're just like throwing backpacks and luggage and things like that, maybe you can use it as some sort of luggage separator. I guess the thought is, if you get the two door, if you get the defender 90 and you fold down the rear seats and you basically just use it as a two seater vehicle, but with more storage in the back. Then it makes a little bit more sense to me. But if you're using it as a four seater, it's a little odd. And then the one I drove, which isn't the fanciest version. It was the first edition, but not with all of the options. And it had this interesting jump seat in the front in the middle. So the front seats can seat three people, if you wanted. Now, I believe there's an option to just get a regular center console, a cup holder's arm rest. But the way this worked was, the middle seat, although narrow, it has a seat belt. It folds down, and then on the back of that seat, you have your arm rest and cup holders. But it sits very high, especially for a guy my size, right? Your arm is up very high, and it takes up a lot of space for a center console. What do you expect? Yeah, yeah. And then when you fold it up because it has to have a head rest on it, you know, sort of an integrated headrest, when it's down in center console mode, it's got this big kind of pad going to the front. It's a little, again, you've really got to know what you're getting this getting into with this thing. I would say. There's a lot of use for it in LA county. I know what I'm saying. For all the mall hoppers out there that are going to cruise around this thing in Beverly Hills. You got to know what you're getting when you get into the inside of this thing and you drive it and you want to use it if you're going to use the back seats or whatever. Now that being said, every time I park this thing, people went up and took pictures of it. It's a cool looking vehicle. And the two door looks badass. Look, you got the new Bronco. You got gauge the new Bronco. We saw the tudors, the two doors look badass, but the two doors less practical than the four, right? So you want to get the four door and if gage is going to go out and drive it and he's got a couple of his buddies or teammates or whatever. The four doors way more practical. Although the two door looks cool. And kind of the same idea with this thing. I like the defender. I think the defender is very cool. I think stylistically, it does a pretty good job of being modern, but also tip the hat at the old to the old defenders. I think the off road capability is pretty cool for this thing. I know a lot of, you know, higher net worth people that are going, oh, I've got a second house, so I'm going to Telluride or I'm in Jackson hole and I want a cool vehicle and a Montana, my second property, and I picked up the defender out there. It's like, yes. Listening to your assessment, I would say that defenders want to have a job replicating what they did in the past. You're right. That's exactly right. They did, yeah. I know. I'm just saying. But there's two dos to them for doing that because they didn't change the concept, you know, a 100%. They kept it as true to history as possible to satiate the people that have those vehicles. My brother is one of them. I loved his two door defender. Yeah. When I drove, and there seemed to be a decent amount of room in that in the back, but it's a specialized vehicle. It's an upscale utilitarian vehicle that's very specialized. You know, your brothers was an older truck. Right, so he's got, he's got that style. Does he have any of the new defenders? I'm not sure. He's a Land Rover guy as far as the four doors concerned, but I remember he had one of the original two doors. Yeah, so I mean, I like the new vehicle. I like the new range rovers. I like the new the new Land Rover, line rover sport. All of those I like. I just think, as I was trying to move stuff around and use the vehicle, it was just a little awkward to me and I was getting a little frustrated. I was like, I would just get the four door. So anyway, that's just kind of my thoughts. Did you drove the four door? I did. I drove the four door, and I did like a rally with it. There was like a super car rally from a bunch of friends and a dealer had, and I was just driving this, so they're like, let's cut the canyons and everybody had like Audi R 8s and stuff. And I was like, I'm gonna do it in a Land Rover. I'm just gonna do it. The defender of one ten. And I remember did you like it? I did like it. I did like it. Now, I had the one ten and I had the fancier version. So that's kind of where you're like, you know, do you get the stripped down version or do you get the fancier version? Look, in the world of Jeep and Bronco and Land Rover defender, it's nice to have those options. And I wouldn't even consider them a small medium and large. You can get a fully equipped Jeep for around 60,000 bucks. And you can get kind of a base Land Rover for 50,000 or something. So the one that I drove this defender 90 had the nice audio system. It had the jump seat.

"The old timer guys like this, but they take the modern vehicles, they tune it, whatever graphics, power the whole thing. And then they slap on a name, like copo Camaro and yenko, and in this case they did a GMC cyclone, right? They brought the cyclone back, the hot little all wheel drive truck. And then they did a modern day version. I don't know that we need to keep bringing back these nameplates and licensing nameplates and like, here's the modern day yenko and here's the, I don't know, it's like, I think we're kind of getting away from there's no lineage. There's no, there's no real tie to it. It's more of just a licensing deal. The story, I don't know, that's it. I get it, it's a money grab, in a sense, and it's like for the guys that have a yenko or a copo Camaro and they want to park the new version next to it. And there are collections. Yeah, listen, tune the car, make the car. Give it a different name and make it your own and start your own legacy. The guys VE, they did GMC cyclone reboot, right? A year ago, they did 50, they produced 50 trucks, 750 horsepower, sports suspension, lowered stance, I believe it was the 5.3 liter V8, had a big supercharger on it. I didn't love it. I didn't love it. It was all wheel drive, that part was on par. It was an extended cab, not a regular cab, which the cyclone was. So the shorter truck would have been more interesting. I don't even know if they make a shorter truck, but it would have been more interesting if they were to turn it into that. And they supercharged it, which I get it. That's the easy way to make the horsepower and there's kits out there, and they're street legal and the whole thing. But the original truck was turbo. The original truck was turbo. So if you're gonna do it and you're gonna call a cyclone, then go through the effort of developing the turbo kit and I guess work with sema or whomever. And. Get it 50 state legal. And make us a turbo all wheel drive truck if you're gonna call it, call it a cyclone. Anyway, so they've got a new truck called the extreme, I think it's extreme off road. So same kind of format, but instead of a sport truck, it's the off road version, it's got the tuned shocks, lifted suspension that are put in their own supercharger on it now. It's 750 horsepower, 600 pound feet of torque. It's a Chevy Colorado, what it's based off of, so if you want the smaller truck, but with the Dodge TRX, ram TRX horsepower and the smaller truck, you can get it from these guys. Now, to their credit, they did step up. Is they have a built engine, they have forged internal CNC ported heads on this upgraded fuel system. They needed to do a lot of work to get this thing to 750 horsepower. So my point is, well, then why didn't you do that on the cyclone? Why didn't you just develop the twin turbo kit and make them cool cyclone? I'm sure they got a lot of people going, hey man, why did you do turbo the thing? It looks like it'd be great. Here's a question. There's a question for you. If they want to bring back what the originals brought to the table. If I remember correctly, all the Yankees were forced me. Yeah, okay. That sounds right. I would be willing to bet that the ones that they replicated are not any of them four speeds. Right. It would be. Because they did their camaros and stuff and yeah, there's no way they would have gone from like a 6 speed manual to a four speed or the ten speed automatic to a four speed automatic. But let's just say manual. Let's say manual period. Yeah. Well, I mean, the manual, the Camaro did have an optional manual, so they might have been able to do the manual transmission. I'm sure they were able to, but I'm just curious to know how many of them they actually made. That is a good question. Yeah, how many got ordered with a manual? This is they want to keep it true to true to history, then there you go. All right, well, SV E, they're taking their Chevy Colorado, the extreme off road, big horsepower, big wheel and tire package, all the good bits. Here's the kicker. If you want it, it's $80,000 over the price of the Chevy Colorado. It's like yeah, it's like, how does he? At least Hennessy names his things his own stuff. So that's good. Exactly. Anyway, it looks kind of cool, but on the same notion, you could go to Lincoln filter and get the ligand filter four 50 horsepower package, which is the supercharger package for a fraction of the price. And have them install it in dino tune it and warranty it and you can do what you want on the rest of the vehicle. If you want the whole thing, turn key, maybe SV, you can pay the 80 grand over the price of the vehicle. But I guess I'm going to go get a bag real quick. It's knocking down knocking down the water, knocking down the water. Let's see, I've been driving, I've been driving the Land Rover defender. The defender 90. So I drove the Land Rover defender one ten, which is the four door version. That was a little bit of a while ago. I think we got into that. I grabbed the defender 90, the two door version. The shorter wheel base, it's quite a bit shorter. It's about 17 inches..

"Something they came back and they said, but we'll give you a credit or like a gift card to use in the aftermarket catalog for the parts of accessories, right? So, you know, it's not all equal, but they're going, hey, you know what? Here's a couple of hundred bucks to spend at the dealer while you're there. You want to outfit your vehicle with something. You're not having to come out of pocket anymore. Yeah, so it's like, you know, you got to wait a little longer. And here's some money. But really long enough. And here's something positive on top of it. That's just a completely different scenario. Well, so rivian came out and said, so Ford with the Bronco, they said, you got to wait a little longer. Here's a gift card. Here's some money. And bend over and let me kick you. Yeah, that's it. Yeah, I mean, bullshit. So first they said, you got to wait longer. And now they said, and we're going to charge you more money. So at least come out. Please come out and open your books and say, this is what it's costing us extra, right? We'll meet you halfway in the middle. We'll pay it's 20%. We'll pay 10% of it. We're asking you, you know, in good faith to me this in the murder. You know what? You are exactly right. At least the optics on that, right? The narrative would have been better. If they said, listen, all the prices for the 2024 vehicles are going to have a 20% hike. For the existing orders, we're going to have to meet you in the middle. We're going to take a little bit of a hit. We've approved this with our board. We know this is going to affect us financially, but we don't want to love your vehicle. The others will have the end. That's right. And then two years from now or whatever. Or. The accessories like gift card, that kind of thing, and if you want to outfit your rivian, I don't know if they have as many aftermarket accessories and their catalog like Ford does. But the gesture means more than anything because the parts in the parts, the aftermarket parts and the Ford steel are Ford gives you, I don't know what $250 gift card, you spend $250 of retail pricing, but they're making the parts or there's a profit margin there. So it was a nice way of them going. We're going to compensate you retail level of 250 bucks. That is real money in your pocket, but for them on the back end, the bean counters are going, okay, but it's going to cost us 30 cents. Yeah, it's going to cost a 30 cents for every dollar we're going to give out, right? So something along the lines of that. So I think rivian is, I still like the vehicle. I like what's going on there, you know, having not driven it yet. But these are some of the growing pains and it's tough when you have to put your growing pains onto the customer as well. Like we've seen this with delays with Tesla and everything else. But listen, to Elon Musk's credit, he said, congratulations rivian on your IPO and lucid and what you're doing and the big power in the range. But just keep in mind and this is not trying to him being like a wacky guy or be the dick he's often been in the past. Him going, now you have to build the cars. And believe it or not, that's the tough part there, big guy. Hey, rivian lucid, mullin, fisker. It's like, you got to have to start building the cars. And that's going to be tough. So he was right on that point. Anyway, that being said, it's not all, it's not all doom and gloom. All that's out of the way. Let's get to some of the more interesting stuff. So at the end of this month, march 29th lotus is going to unveil their first SUV. Right now they're calling the type one 32. I don't know if that's what it's really going to be called when it hits the public market. And I don't know when it's going to come out. All we know is, every time we hear the announcement of a new car, we're like, congratulations. We got a new car coming out in 2024. 2025. Don't forget about it for three years before. Yeah, right? So anyway, it seems interesting. So lotus and SUV. I think it could be important for the brand. It's going to be an EV, right? It's going to be an electric SUV. It's going to have the lotus DNA. It's going to be a sport SUV. I believe they're trying to go after Porsche Cayenne. Which may indicate sort of the size of it if they said Porsche McConnell that'd be different. I would have thought Porsche McConnell because lotus you typically think small lightweight, so kind of a sporty SUV. We'll see where it's going to go from there. The teaser stuff is kind of interesting. There was a video that they posted, but in the screenshots, it's interesting because it's an EV and it has paddles. It has like a plus and negative paddle, which there's no real gear changing in EVs. There's some technology that's being developed to for some company. So maybe it has to do with the braking, the regenerative braking, you know, like in the teslas and a lot of the EV cars you can do the one like Ford as well, the Mach-E, you can do the one pedal driving. You hit the accelerator, you get off the accelerator and start to apply the brakes. You don't need to use the brake pedal. Maybe it's some version of turning that on and off or the sensitivity of it. Things like that. So not sure how they're going to how they're going to do that. But anyway, that's the news from those guys. We've talked about these guys before, specialty vehicle engineering. It's an aftermarket tuner been around for a long time. They're making these specialty vehicles. I'm not sure if I'm a big fan of this thing that they've been doing. A lot of the old timer guys like this, but they take the modern vehicles, they tune it, whatever graphics, power the whole thing. And.

"Put it in the figures like that. Puts reality. It takes the giggle out of it. I mean, it's a horrible thing. It does. Now, from the owner's point of view or the order holders, they didn't take delivery of the car. So this isn't going to be on them. They don't have to call their insurance company. They can decide, do we order a new car? Do we cancel the order, whatever. I'm sure they're going to have to work that out with the car companies, the particular brands, maybe Porsche does something different than VW, maybe VW does something different than Audi, Lamborghini, and so on and so forth. How'd you like to be the concierge taking those codes? Yeah, and listen, and all these dealers that don't have a lot of information. They're getting phone calls and all kinds of information from their customers going, what are we doing? What's going on? And these are expensive cars, so it's a little bit different type of buyer and it's sort of a little bit more of a hand holding process when you're constant ordering a car and you're building it to order and if you do paint to match and all kinds of stuff. So yeah, it sounds like a whole terrible situation. Good that nobody's hurt, but now this is an impact on the environment out there and impact financially. There's a lot of things going on. But anyway, that's the news there. And in other reservation holder news, rivian just announced, I believe, today, or yesterday, rivian said, hey, we can't, when we announced the pricing of our vehicles, we announced the pricing of our vehicles back in 2018. Pretty pandemic pre chip shortage pre, everything. So now they had a note out to all of their reservation holders and said, we can't give you the vehicle for that price. So you can either pay more for the vehicle that you ordered or we can downgrade you to a lesser vehicle, meaning two motors instead of four or smaller battery, for roughly the same price. What's the difference? Well, if you ordered the long run, the price difference, yeah. It's not insignificant. So if you ordered the base price vehicle, the R one T, which was, that's up 17% to 78,975. And if you ordered the quad motor configuration of the RS one, that's up 20%. 20%. So the forums, this has only been out there for like a day, and there was like 40 pages of comments on the forums in the first day of people saying this is pricing me out of the vehicle. I can no longer afford the vehicle. I have to cancel orders and some are saying, I got to get the lesser version and obviously, listen, there's not a single person that's on the list that's going, yeah, all right, it's fine. I mean, some people will deal with it because they can afford it. But nobody got this email and was like, eh, I expected this. This is the tough one to swallow. Now this is, this is a tough thing to do. Because no matter how much money or how little money you have, this hurts, right? This hearts to get this sort of news and going, hey, congratulations. You're going to be one of the first people to get this cool new electric truck that we've been talking about. But you're going to have to pay us a lot more money for it. And this is a little different than the dealer going to them and going, hey, you with the new lightning on the new Z06 Corvette. I know you gave $500 deposit to get to get that vehicle. But there's a $10,000 dealer markup, right? So this isn't Ford and GM going, hey dealers, you need to stop doing that. You can't just charge whatever, you know, people are waiting for the car. There's reservations for the car. Do the right thing and just charge sticker. This is the factory going. We got to make more money on these cars. For whatever financial reason, stock price reasons, whatever the pressure is coming from. So that's a tough gig. Listen, here's my prediction. That's either going to be one bad ass truck or that they just dealt ourselves their death blow. Because if it's an established manufacturer, you're going to obviously have some trust in now you have to have that much more trust in their ability to provide this technology at the top level to constitute a 25 or 20% upgrade before you have even driven. Because they're brand new, right? They're brand new. All of these order holders have never horrible move. Yeah, it's a tough move. I'm a little surprised that there wasn't. Some sort of compensation. Like, where's the goodwill? You know what I'm saying? Yeah. You know, like, you know how like even Ford was like, oh, you know, we know we have chip shortages at a couple of other things that are affecting the new vehicles, but we told you guys you were going to get a Bronco, but now we found out the hard tops were leaking water. So there's going to be a delay in the hardtops. But then at least four did something they came back and they said, but we'll give you a credit or like a gift card to use in the aftermarket catalog for the parts of accessories, right?.

"Are you starting to settle in mind body starting to recuperate after the Saudi Arabia the trip? The match, the time changes, the lack of food, the all of the above. All of the above? As I'm cleaning kangaroo, diarrhea off my pore. Yeah, I'm getting kind of back to normal. Is that normal? I think it's kind of normal. Well, cleaning up the pet shit on the floor is about as normal as it gets. Over there. By the way, yeah, we were just talking about this a second ago. So Wanda, your wife has a zoo basically. I get like there's some animals that come to visit. She sort of like babysits and then or whatever, and then some end up staying permanently. And I've been looking at this. I don't even know what it's really called, but it's a baby kangaroo. It's like a tiny kangaroo. Does it get to be like 5 and a half feet tall? Oh, it's gonna get big, then. I didn't know if it was. All right, so most babies are small in the beginning. And then I just didn't know if this was like a miniature thing. I couldn't be that lucky guy. No, so. Although there's a miniature one then there's more excuse to get more of them. So they take up less space. And so yeah, I mean, there's like Cathy out to each one, but it's a normal sized kangaroo and it's wonderful. Rufus, the kangaroo. And right now is tiny. And sits in the car and goes on rides with her and wears a scarf and a little coat. What are you gonna do when this thing's 5 and a half feet tall and wants to ride in the car and wear a scarf and scarf up the window. The scars because it's, you know, it's been like 30° here, repeatedly day after day, and I live in Texas. It's funny that the one that grows up in Canada asked me a 100% seriously the other day. Did you know it got so cold here in Texas where we moved here? Like, aren't you from Canada, first of all? Yeah. Back in the ball. Yeah, I mean, hey, man. It's seasonal. Yeah. Anyway, I keep seeing Wanda's posts on social media. And I was like, oh, this thing is super cute. I was like, but it's gonna get big. Actually, that's why he originally wanted it because it's funny. Like me and the fading goat thing. Yeah. He's gonna get his ass kicked by it, and then, you know, the more reliable he'll probably have to quit sports. But, you know, it's entertainment, man. It's entertainment and keeping my beautiful wife happy. And that's all. She seems to be having a great time and does such a great job with the entire zoo. There's a lot. There's a lot going on. We can be included in that. You guys are part of the animals. Over there that she's taken care of. How's the garage? It's getting there, man. They're jamming, you know, one day it's ten cars out there and they're putting up the rest of the purling and the next day there's one card. You know, it's still, it's still the workforce. You know how that is. And then it's supplies and but it's moving along, man. They're putting the floors in. So, I mean, I'm getting excited. Get excited, talk to Ben pack, you know, again last week. Yes. Got the flooring decided on the main floor and then we're working on the second flooring and then the stairs and you don't have the stairs are. Yeah, yeah. So yeah, and then the garage doors and so yeah, it's getting to be an exciting time to make decisions that will probably prolong the project. So it's good. You got to be able to shoot from the hip a little bit. Not so much that it costs you a fortune, but like I was saying before on the stairs and Adam's new garage, the stairs came out great. The glass railing, all of that came out great. But the grab handle that they sent, the mounts on it, and it was wood, we just didn't like any of that. So Sean and the warehouse over there custom fabricated everything, got stainless round tube, and cut welded and bended on the mandrel bender and the whole thing and just went back a few times and take measurements and then he came here when everything was welded and finished. He had one giant railing that was mounted the entire shape two turns and going up and brought it over. And that was, it was a lot of work and it's a subtle difference, but it made all the difference in the world. We just weren't happy with the little red. I hope to do absolutely none of that. Yeah. I hope so too, but those are the little things that you're going to get you there. I come clean. The things backwards, like that I originally kind of planned because of the roof line. It's slow. Yeah. I thought the kitchenette and the big deck were at the large opening instead, you know. So they're on the slope side. They're on the lower end side. Okay. So, I mean, yeah, through all of the reconfigurations and everything, the additions. I seem to have overlooked something that was a really big deal. But is it bad or you're just surprised? Oh, I'm surprised in its bad a little bit. There has to be a little bit of altering the needs to take place. But for the most part, it's not really effective. It's just, I would have liked to have had the roof line 5 to 8 feet higher where I'm doing. In those areas. Yeah, yes. In those areas. Because it's completely switched and like the stairs, the stairs are on the opposite side. So I got the whole building turned around and it's all good. There's no negative about it except for I feel like a horse's ass. But I mean, that's all good. It's all good. Just some retrofit. Just some reconfiguring it. All right, we'll see. Let's see what that's going to cost you..

"That's cheap. For the FF. How about they lusso, the GT four lusso. I'm just curious to see if that was a much better car or slightly better car. The car that's popping, which I've always was always kind of confused by in the Ferrari department, but there's a couple coming up at auction with some pretty high. Estimates, car IU stone, which is 360 three dollars. I'm always like, that's a ton of car. And they were just 90 to one ten all day long for the longest period of time. And I'm like, it's a real, I mean, it is a street legal race car and it is a cool piece. And it looks good and it just it's perfect. And I'm like, why is that a hundred grand? Yeah. They're two 52. They went quickly. They went quickly. Speaking of that, we were kind of speculating. I think it was the last episode where you're telling me about the first Japanese car to the one 75 to two, which is still quite a bit under sticker, yeah, I kind of feel like if you're within 30 to $50,000 between the FF and the luso, you might want to lean toward the loose cell. Although I mean, obviously it's still $50,000. But yeah, kind of interesting. I haven't done enough research on to figure out what the quarks were with the bugs were like every car would have. So I cost of ownership I'd be curious. I don't know that car is 2014 or something now or whatever it's been a little bit. It's been a little bit. I would say that the way the more modern car market supercar exotic car market is going, I think those cars are still a little undervalued. I think that would be a good purchase. I think you do okay. And that's a big statement because everything is overvalued right now. Everything seems to be really high. So if you're looking for something that might be interesting at a good price, I agree on those cars. Well, speaking of overvalued. So we're talking about previous show we're talking about first Japanese car to get over 2 million bucks. And lo and behold, a Toyota 67 Toyota 2000 GT, the Shelby production race car is coming up for auction at Amelia island with two 7 5 to three 5. I think it is. Sounds very ambitious to me. Very ambitious. Now maybe it's just all things Shelby. Maybe it's that the 2000s are knocking on the door of a million bucks again. And it's really it looks great in that race train with those Shelby American colors on it. And I don't know if people know that story. But and I'll screw it up a little bit. So you fill in the blanks. Okay. If I screw this up. But the story you go, Shelby, Toyota. What's up? Yeah. The answer to the story is by the mid later by 66. Maybe 67 Shelby was kind of done with the GT 40 and done with the Daytona and done with Pete Brock and that was that. You know, Pete Brock, like I said after they got done winning the manufacturer's championship with the Daytona just sort of came back to Shelby and someone else was in his office basically how he described it. He got his walking papers. And then he went and took the heno. The hino sports car. He know was doing some sort of Japanese sports car. He know that truck manufacture. Yeah. He's doing a car. I'll screw it up a little, but I'm basing on what Brock told me or us. He took the heno Brock did his magic on the hino sedan sports car, you know, took it to riverside and won the class. And that people became very impressed on what Pete Brock could do with the Japanese car. And so then a lot of the other Japanese car, I guess manufacturers wanted to know who this guy was and what they could do for us. And then he know in dots and had some sort of relationship or somebody that he know or whatever and long story or Toyota, maybe he known Toyota. I think Toyota bought he know or some version of that later. Yeah, Toyota, I think still owns it. There was some relationship there. And so they said, hey, we're going to do this Toyota 2000 sports car and why not give it to Brock and let him breathe on it. And let's go racing and then Brock said good. And we'll do a dealership and blah blah blah and then Shelby said, what's that? You're going to do a dealership with Toyota? Yeah. I could use a dealership with Toyota. And then he just sort of walked in and said, wouldn't you guys rather have a Shelby Toyota dealership on the heels of all the winning shall we just got doing at Le Mans and beyond versus Brock Toyota dealership? And they're like, yeah, we'll take Shelby. He took over the whole thing. And then Brock was shit out of luck. And then somebody maybe had he know or maybe wherever got him hooked up with dotson. And then he said, all right, now we're gonna build datsun race cars and we're gonna follow Shelby around wherever they go to race. We're gonna go to race and we're gonna beat them. And get all the points. And it's payback time for Shelby. And according to Brock or anyone else and even according to the description and the auction site, that car won out had some limited very limited success. Never really, it never really performed how they wanted it to perform, I think. And I don't know. It wasn't like a big podium car or winning car. It was a top ten car. I don't think there are any of those 2000s. I think Shelby, I don't know, Chris, if you can see who would those Shelby's have raced against like John Morton and his two 40 Z well, it was a C production. Right. So in 68, it ran the C production class for imports, while there was no Z in south Mayo datsun lotus Nissan Porsche triumph would have maybe been in those? Yeah, C production,.

What I Saw on the Frontlines of the Biden Border Invasion

"But Yuma has become the superhighway for illegals to come into America. Yuma, once about 5 to ten years ago, used to have maybe 6 or 7 illegals passing through their sector a day. Manageable, not a lot. Now they have well over 1000 people passing through the Yuma sector every single day. 1000. We saw it for ourselves. Now rarely, in life, do you get to witness a physical location or an event? Coordinates on a map, where you know, decisively that this is the unraveling of your civilization. So a lot of you listening feel like you're losing your country and you are. A lot of you listening feel as if that the country you grew up in is deteriorating and you're right. But rarely do actually get to see it happen in real time. Where all of a sudden the abstract becomes the concrete. So our tour began right on the Colorado River. The Colorado River, of course, cuts all across the western part of the United States. And is the dividing line between Mexico and the United States in this particular area. What was so stunning is as we talked to border patrol and we talked to the experts on the ground, including the Yuma county supervisor, they pointed out a brush area. They said, yeah, there's probably 5 to 20 people just in that brush area waiting to make a break for it right now. In the Mexican area. And I said, well, why is the max can government doing nothing? And we'll revisit this theme later on. They said, well, Mexican government wants them to come across. It is a stimulus every illegal that comes into America is a financial and monetary advantage. To the Mexican government and to the Mexican economy and I'll explain exactly how that is. So the board of patrol guy was kind of sitting there up against his SUV. Doing a good job and he has a boat right there on the Colorado River now. He's not allowed to get into the boat. He's not allowed to go try and intercept until they actually come into America. He can't go into Mexico to go get them, so then I asked some of our, I guess you could call them tour guides, but that definitely kind of dilutes the significance. We had border patrol we had everything there. I said, well, what happens if we went into Mexico and stopped them, they said, well, that would be, that would be an international crisis. I said, oh, really. So we go into Mexico to go stop a bunch of criminals to come into our country. That would start a war, not a war, but it would start a controversy, but the illegals with Mexican government support can come into our country and there's nothing we can do about

"My name is martin lee and through every story. So you haven't got a kick off with that. Big story about the kea. Unveiling the ev six. Its first dedicated. Ev has revealed the first official images of the av six. It's a dedicated. Av on the new platform from the parent company. Hyundai group is the global modular platform. Gnp the league in the six is what is going to be cold. it's the first of next gen battery. Electric vehicles developed under a new delight. Designed philosophy that embodies. What they say is their shift to a navy. Company says next green car care has not yet provided any technical data on the eve. Six baht we can join up the dots. So the ionic five hyundai big brother come the the company or the announced that on surprisingly that the first and then key is coming second. But that'll provide some clues as to where we are now. Batteries on the ionic five. Fifty eight or seventy three kilowatt hours powertrains hundred and twenty five and two hundred and twenty five kilowatts That will maybe be reflected. Mirrored somewhere on key is very similar version of the i five. The ev six. They've gone for numbers letters and numbers the ev. One will be interesting won't it. What if they're allowed to use that name. I highly doubt it anyway. Moving the six. We'll have the fast charging capacity because it's not to do with humvees the platform so we know the on five charges mega quick. So will this and so that is going to be for so many people that happened to be passing one hundred and fifty or three hundred and fifty kilowatt fast charger a rapid high powered charge. That can really make the most use a nice low state of charge. They're going to be charging for fifteen twenty minutes. And then you're on the road next gen stuff. This is the future. I'm so excited about it. Can you tell again like scientist at times next to carve. I'm excited about. But i can't buy hit the duchy a spring dutch. I was gonna say the cheap bit of reynaud and realized that might be a little more insulting. That i intended it. But it's kinda true. The cheap bit of reynaud dacha is unveiling the spring pricing now available to order from twelve. Just over twelve thousand euros opening a new chapter in the history with the spring all electric car hundred percent ebay and knowledge of the renault group of being passed down to this starting at just over twelve thousand euros off the government incentives in france supply. The spring is the most affordable av in europe they say making mobility accessible for twelve thousand euros now beneath its. Suv look like city hall with four seats and simple engine. Two hundred and thirty kilometers wwl's ep range and forty four horsepower motor or thirty three kilowatts all electric power. Like i say battery size okay. Twenty seven point four kilowatt hours. That's respectable. I'll take that twenty seven point four bigger than my first ev. The reynoso zoe. The first one i had and so have a look at the pictures if you can with avocados around it when you see because it's of like crossover style to it looks toll and it looks fled and it looks like oh. How big's up. There's some pictures floating around ready or Twitter somebody folded onto me. And i'll give you name check on the podcast soon It was it james. J j james foley and to zoe's flanking a spring as the spring is between them. It's a spring sandwich and the zoe looks enormous. And that's and there's always a very small car so yet it's weird the pictures on its own the spring look big but look at it against because it really is a roller skate. I mean i think this picture was legit. It's tiny Okay we'll we'll wait to see them only only cheap reviews and stuff and maybe get drive of one next. We'll talk tesla asking regulators to allow full. Self-driving beta to be available. Any europe says smith them us after the ceo announced the wide. Release a full self-driving beta a few days ago. The topic is attracted more attention. Flosi wannabe part of the testing program. So in the us the Drivers can now button and request. The beta version. Europeans have been expressing strong desire to try out over here and so of course using twitter. He wrote the test will ask regulators to allow it says in response to a request from a tesla over here in europe Elon musk replied. The company would ask regional regulators to authorize the use of beata full. Self-driving beater over here if approval granted. It'll become an additional stage in the development of a very impressive system fact days roads over here versus road in the us. Very different now The cities particularly compact hundreds of years old narrow streets and pedestrians in some cities. Now i'm looking at you italy in paris franz You know there are calls but the pedestrians just walk so yet. The other drivers yeah. It's gonna be interesting When that is unveiled over. Here if is i mean. I don is i think about it all the time but there is like there's a semi serious side of that is not self driving. It's really impressive. Doing tesla But it's not self driving and it won't be for a really long time. Not level five not even not level for not take out the steering wheel and when it's raining and snowy it'll get you to where you wanna go knocking do that in a million in a million cases so It's it's hard to have a balanced argument with uber fans about this book as kind of. Yeah it's where we are so there is a serious side to that and there's a safety issue as well. We've seen those issues before With tesla's autonomy suites. You've got to pay attention. You gotta have your hands on the wheel and fate by the pedal so when you go into an underpass and it slams on the brakes and fence and breaking you are ready to accelerate away from the comments about to plow into the back of. Yeah right let's move on a tesla's cost per kilowatt hour from cells. Suppliers has been well. This says reveals. But tesla haven't revealed it Tesla sources many of its batteries from third party suppliers. These days panasonic long term partner. Panasonic those have gone hand in glove for years However the likes of lg kevin cat common names associated with us when we talk about tesla these days as well and that paying significantly less per kilowatt hour compared to their competitors according to a report done by can energy research advisers says teslarati according to cancer research tesla pays one hundred and forty two dollars per kilowatt hour for cells purchased from the three supplies. I mentioned meanwhile. Gm is paying a hundred sixty nine. The industry average is one eight six according to this report.

"You, , see them everywhere nearly fifty percent of all vehicles sold in the US, , our sport utility vehicles the International Energy Agency reports SUV's are second only to electric power for the increase in greenhouse gas emissions in the last decade. . But there are a new wave of all electric SUV's and trucks is coming and these new vehicles may be more powerful and boasted longer driving range than many of today's gas-powered SUV's trucks. . So, , how quickly will high tech these take hold in the next decade Chelsea Sexton is an electric car advocate and consultant hi. . Chelsea their quick. . Sketch here, , how close are we to the next wave of electric vehicles and what will their capabilities be? ? We're going to start to see more of them in the next year or two obviously things are slightly influx with the pandemic but most of the automakers are still trying to be within a few months of their original targets and we're seeing everything from plug in hybrid jeep wrangler with thirty miles of electric range for around town driving and. . Gasoline after that, , all the way up to f one, , fifty and riven with a few hundred miles of expected range and I'm interested in that F one fifty story because that Ford truck is the top selling truck in America I think there were nine hundred thousand f-series trucks sold last year and I see that they're retooling a factory in Michigan to build the first all electric f one fifty. . What do we know about that role? ? Not very much. . We're expecting it late twenty, , twenty, , one, , early twenty, , twenty, , two something to that effect and they've not released really any specs other than videos of hauling trains and things to try to prove that electric vehicles really do have as much more performance than gasoline trucks, , what other electric pickups SUV's Few years I'm watching all of them. . There still are some open questions about everyone of them in that most vs today of any model have been sold only in California or the carb states owens have mandates requiring evt's there's not that many vehicles that are available across the country, , and that will be a huge thing to prove what the trucks regarding who's serious, , and WHO's not. . That's an open question for folks like Ford, , will they make these things in volume and sell them nationwide and really get behind them with the marketing and dealer support or is this going to be more of what we refer to as a compliance car which is basically Will sell as many as we have to in the places we have to, , but not really in it with their hearts well, , and part of the answer to that might be consumer attitudes. . Right? ? I mean you helped launch an electric vehicle for GM back in the nineties. . Have you seen consumer attitudes change in that time and if they changed enough to bring in the truck SUV drivers ironically that generation in the nineties had more trucks than SUV's in it than than small cars everyone knows the ev one that was the one I was involved in but Chevy and Ford made pickups at the time and Honda and Toyota made small SUV's so it's Sort of feels like we're yanking the automakers back toward where they started. . There's still a lot of education that's needed. There . are lots of people that are not even aware of electric vehicles, , but in part that's because they've never seen one and they've never been available and so people can't buy what they don't know as even possible. . So there's a lot of education required on that front but the interesting thing about electric vehicles in general is that it is the only example in the history of the automotive industry in which the industry itself has required demand to predate and continually exceeds supply. . What. That . sounds like is every time you hear it automaker executive say when we see demand for electric cars will start to build them. . So it's always been the market polling for from the automakers versus the automakers trying to build their own market for something. . So it's a parallel. . Yes. . Of course, , we need to do more education, , but we also need to start building things that people can see our else. . They're never going to be aware of them in want to buy one. . What about the politics of this? ? How much do you see that playing into the success of the next generation of truckin SUV models I mean we'll some people just not wanNA drive one because of their political beliefs it's possible however. . The irony is that there has always been a fair amount of right wing support for electric vehicles because they use domestic energy, , they keep more money in the local economy. . We're not sending money overseas before an oil, , and so it doesn't always get talked about in this administration because the politics kind of ebb and flow depending on the administration but there is a fair amount of conservative support and they're not just sort of this liberal technology that they're made out to be. . So all politics tend to be kind of transient and. . I've watched it shift back and forth over the years. . So I don't expect the current politics will be permanent <hes>. . But at the same time, this , has always been if not politically driven certainly policy driven it is those external incentives and mandates that have helped compel with the advocates and market asking for them electric vehicles for twenty five years, , and it will probably remain. So . for the next several at least are there any other barriers you see to electric truck an SUV sales? ? The single biggest barrier today is lack of product. . The second biggest is lack of marketing and awareness and education and people not being able to buy what they don't know about and the third biggest dealerships across the board with any EV model if dealers aren't comfortable and wanting to sell vs they're not going to be successful at it, , and so we can put billions of dollars into those first two things. . But at the end of the day, , if someone walks into a Ford dealer in his told well now, , you'd really rather have the gasoline f one, , fifty, , not the electric one that one's Kinda goofy. . All of that money and effort is wasted what about the pace of change and I know we're focused on electric vehicles today on the transportation emissions but overall with climate emissions I mean you you live in California you've been watching this for decades. . We've got these terrible fires in California and Oregon this week are we moving fast enough now? ? We're not and that is not a widespread enough opinion yet. . But regardless of why they come to the table, , the best thing we can do is make more options available and attractive. So . it doesn't matter if someone is coming to an AV because of climate change or air pollution or any other reason if they're coming for Torque and horsepower I'm fine with that. . The goal is to build more of the table as we have more seats at it not be so concerned about why people come and sit down I'm all about the Torque and horsepower Chelsea, , Sexton electric-car advocate and consultant. Thanks . so much for sharing your perspective on climate cast today. . Thank you for crash your party
