You gotta go all the way around.
00:51
You can't just do the seats.
00:52
Yeah, you gotta touch it.
00:52
You gotta rub it all the way around.
00:54
I got about seven coats of clear on here.
00:57
So at night, it's so wet,
00:59
it looks like a glass riding down the street, baby.
01:01
(laughter)
01:03
I like it.
01:04
This is the new 2013 Range Rover.
01:08
A big truck, but it's fast.
01:09
You know this thing has 510 horse power.
01:11
I mean you can dress up and go to meetings in it
01:12
or you can just like I said take the family
01:15
out an excursion.
01:16
Yeah, because you know this is in LA,
01:18
they only come in black. (laughter)
01:21
This is a 2013 Rolls Royce Ghost.
01:26
Eight speed, wood grain, you know I bought this car
01:31
because it was an everyday car.
01:33
It's like a coupe, but I can still get a driver
01:35
to take me and my wife out to dinner.
01:38
This is beautiful, but it is a Rolls Royce.
01:40
It is.
01:40
And a Rolls Royce is all about the interior.
01:42
Let's take a look at it.
01:43
Beautiful white interior.
01:44
Yes.
01:45
It's so classy.
01:46
It's the most sort of Rolls Royce combination.
01:48
This is an English car.
01:50
It is.
01:50
It rains there all the time.
01:51
All the time.
01:52
So here's a little something.
01:53
You just got this car.
01:54
So here's something you might not know.
01:56
Comes with an umbrella.
01:57
What the hell?
01:58
Oh my God. I didn't know that was there.
02:01
Crazy all my life man, I didn't know that was there.
02:04
(laughter)
02:04
Wow.
02:06
So tell me about this car.
02:07
This car is all flash.
02:08
It's the only T-Bucket I've ever seen
02:10
that has wire wheels on it.
02:11
This is a 1932 Ford Roadster.
02:15
We got these wire rims on it.
02:16
I got 26 inches in the back with a three-stroke engine
02:20
with the straight-street drag pipes.
02:22
It's gotta be amazing to hear as well.
02:25
It is. You wanna hear it?
02:26
Let's fire it up.
02:27
Let's fire it up.
02:28
You gotta climb in it like on the old Beverly Hillbillies.
02:32
We got a kill switch on it. (turns engine on)
02:34
(engine revs)
02:39
(horn blows)
02:45
(laughter)
02:46
I love it.
02:47
So, Mike, I'm a hot rod guy.
02:49
I love this car, but this is not your only hot rod is it?
02:51
No, it's not man.
02:53
I have a 1957 Chevy Bel Air
02:57
that I've been working on now for about six months.
03:00
New Camaro engine.
03:01
I took the old original 57 Chevy engine out of it
03:05
and put a new custom chrome engine in it.
03:08
It's gonna be basically everything new underneath,
03:10
but with that classic style on top.
03:12
So you'll be getting a 1957 Chevy in 2013.
03:17
Man, my girl gon be mad when I get that car. (chuckles)
03:19
