Why is a witch's tit cold?
I never understood that either.
My relationship with each one of these cars
that sounds creepy.
First car I ever owned was a Baja bug
I built in a Baja shop in Michigan.
That was in lieu of my pay.
Munk's motors and he's still there.
But that was a terrible car because there was no heat.
Everyone knows VW's
in the winter in Michigan, a terrible car.
My childhood dream car to be honest with you
would be a tank.
I still want it.
That's all I've ever wanted to drive is a tank
And generally unfortunately
the German tanks had a better style to them.
The guys that helped me build stuff
said they just refused to do it.
I was gonna buy a British tank.
Everybody, even the police in the local area
said we're not going to let you drive around here in a tank.
It makes, it's unsettling to have a tank running around.
Especially with my head in a helmet
shrieking things in German.
I'm currently driving a GTR
and I'm just going to leave it at that.
And it's literally one of
the most curiously intoxicating automobiles I've driven.
And I drove it as a test.
Ended up driving the test mule and I really really like it.
I'm just saying GTR
'cuz if I give away the brand you're gonna go what?
All the other cars are now they're crying literally.
My wife she likes this Nova.
This badass Nova.
And she calls it my wife actually says this
boy that's really a guy magnet.
Is that somethin' you wanna tell your husband?
Yeah guys are really hittin' on me all day.
Well maybe you shouldn't drive it without your top on.
Why why do I need to hear this.
If I drove the Carrerra GT it looks like money
and I think sometimes women respond more to
boy that dude's probably got a lot of dough.
But like I said I drive around naked
because that's the relationship I have with my automobiles.
I could've had
a short wheel base 250 Ferrari a long time ago.
And I bought a 330 GTC if you know all of these.
I like the GTC 'cuz the character in Grand Prix
that played Mr. Ferrari drove it up to the pits.
I always wanted that car and I ended up gettin' it.
It's right over there.
But the 250 short wheel base Ferrari
I could've had at bargain prices
but the one that you just can't get is GTO's.
'64, '63 GTO's they're just absurd
like 20, 30 million dollars.
I don't care how much money you make.
You're not likely to drive that ever
so what I'm thinkin' is just stealing one.
