Why is a witch's tit cold?
00:01
I never understood that either.
00:06
(rock music)
00:12
My relationship with each one of these cars
00:13
that sounds creepy.
00:19
First car I ever owned was a Baja bug
00:22
I built in a Baja shop in Michigan.
00:25
That was in lieu of my pay.
00:26
Munk's motors and he's still there.
00:29
But that was a terrible car because there was no heat.
00:31
Everyone knows VW's
00:32
in the winter in Michigan, a terrible car.
00:36
My childhood dream car to be honest with you
00:38
would be a tank.
00:39
I still want it.
00:40
That's all I've ever wanted to drive is a tank
00:43
And generally unfortunately
00:44
the German tanks had a better style to them.
00:46
The guys that helped me build stuff
00:48
said they just refused to do it.
00:50
I was gonna buy a British tank.
00:52
Everybody, even the police in the local area
00:54
said we're not going to let you drive around here in a tank.
00:56
It makes, it's unsettling to have a tank running around.
00:59
Especially with my head in a helmet
01:01
shrieking things in German.
01:05
I'm currently driving a GTR
01:07
and I'm just going to leave it at that.
01:09
And it's literally one of
01:10
the most curiously intoxicating automobiles I've driven.
01:14
And I drove it as a test.
01:16
Ended up driving the test mule and I really really like it.
01:19
I'm just saying GTR
01:20
'cuz if I give away the brand you're gonna go what?
01:22
All the other cars are now they're crying literally.
01:27
My wife she likes this Nova.
01:29
This badass Nova.
01:31
And she calls it my wife actually says this
01:33
boy that's really a guy magnet.
01:35
Is that somethin' you wanna tell your husband?
01:37
Yeah guys are really hittin' on me all day.
01:39
Well maybe you shouldn't drive it without your top on.
01:41
Why why do I need to hear this.
01:43
If I drove the Carrerra GT it looks like money
01:46
and I think sometimes women respond more to
01:48
boy that dude's probably got a lot of dough.
01:51
But like I said I drive around naked
01:53
because that's the relationship I have with my automobiles.
02:00
I could've had
02:02
a short wheel base 250 Ferrari a long time ago.
02:05
And I bought a 330 GTC if you know all of these.
02:08
I like the GTC 'cuz the character in Grand Prix
02:11
that played Mr. Ferrari drove it up to the pits.
02:15
I always wanted that car and I ended up gettin' it.
02:17
It's right over there.
02:18
But the 250 short wheel base Ferrari
02:21
I could've had at bargain prices
02:24
but the one that you just can't get is GTO's.
02:28
'64, '63 GTO's they're just absurd
02:31
like 20, 30 million dollars.
02:33
I don't care how much money you make.
02:34
You're not likely to drive that ever
02:38
so what I'm thinkin' is just stealing one.
