Good afternoon welcome to fox car for live on Gary -- -- today show -- brought you by the letter I apparently because we -- talking about the latest cars from Ferrari Lamborghini.
-- -- if you've ever heard of that company and later in the show going to be joined by racing legend.
Mario Andretti is just got back from a very cool world tour some little different for him we'll be talking -- him about that.
Later in the show but first let -- welcome my guest in studio.
Richard Basil doesn't mean with a wide -- that is correct FL -- towards that convicts her -- -- today with the snow here in new York and also from Los Angeles our friend -- fell out of the smoking entire.
That comment and you -- -- while I'm sure you had no trouble getting the work.
Even though there's no snow there you also drive that Ford F 150 raptors so even if there was car's broken out in front of -- -- you just driver over the that's actually.
Erotic because on the way up here there was Honda -- in front of me who had blown tire and tried to drive at least six or seven miles on the 405.
Smoke everywhere and eventually tired just exploded.
And he had to bail but you called it to -- his -- -- -- negative -- that for us.
I didn't because I don't use my cell phone while driving of course we've never seen those kind of photographs of us who retired doc talked.
Hey I'm real quick before we -- -- shall understand euros are gonna be joining me.
News corporate network.
Got to show pilot you shot there for -- speed with Adam Carolla.
-- tell us anything about that we're gonna see that on the air now what's that -- about.
Well it's it's brilliantly titled what -- show.
So it's it's it's part man show part of sports center and part top here if you would.
And it's given me it's exciting we did we were finished taking a pilot and it's going to be a a uniquely American take.
On the British motoring show so it's not trying to copy anybody.
It's not trying to remake what's already been done it's just stuff for guys who love cars and think they're funny.
-- sitting around and going what would be fun to do entertain people enough.
The audience of the parliament entertain I'm not sure if the pilot itself will ever ever be aired or if -- order series but we're keeping our fingers crossed and everyone from speed and Adam and me and then the other -- we were all happy with it so.
I hope it happens because it's about time to start making some money from.
-- More car shows.
The bettors who would prefer to checking that out as a person's first a couple weeks you're talking here about an interest in car that was up for sale at the Barrett Jackson auction.
-- Scottsdale Arizona -- an ambulance from 1963 and US navy ambulance that purportedly carried the casket.
Kennedy when -- returned to Washington DC after his assassination.
In Dallas well it just before the -- of the auction which took place is necessary night.
Some folks from the professional car society this is group dedicated to preservation.
Of ambulances purses funeral related vehicles they came -- and said you know what that's not actually that car -- over the people at the Kennedy in presidential Library and Museum.
And according to -- they have the car they begin to them in 1980.
And they destroyed it.
In 1986 still exactly sure why they would go about this story and apparently they want to become sort sort of macabre.
Souvenir along those let's remember that we get anybody the society of preservation of old cars is now in the business of crushing them.
While they got a hundred museum tells it exactly -- the museum themselves and these guys got involved in the some of the research on it in any case on the one hand you've got pictures of and it's getting destroyed.
And a letter from the navy said yeah we gave that.
To their library back in the eighties and from what we understand.
It was destroyed on the other hand you've got this car.
That's got a bunch of billboard that says it is the car matching the serial number to the van -- who's been some questions raised about whether or not the plaque in the car the US navy identification black.
Is itself authentic got -- guys over July they dot com did a pretty good run down all this was open -- Mike's been failure in the studio to talk about it unfortunately he drives a Toyota MR two.
And the snow here's about a foot deep so that car had no chance of getting to the studio what we do have all the phone from Grand Junction, Colorado.
Is the woman who now -- that car her name's Terry Allen she's the owner -- unique.
Autos which is a limousine Reynolds company out there in Grand Junction also an avid car collector Tammy are you with a -- -- junction.
So I gotta ask your quick real.
Big cloud around this car why did you buy it.
I'm not clear -- that hurt my eyes to began well.
And then all hold very -- came up there's good.
I thought it was a really interesting part of my -- good story about the uninsured -- if they're they're not paying them.
Nicolas Cage is part of a few people like back I've only been here too.
And I guess I would create any wrapping paper.
People who can look at Andy fight for their help and because I hate I don't know if -- -- -- -- I hope to be a little bit more.
I just thought I had a really story -- -- I want to bet on it but everybody was around me was -- -- And I checked out what my mom -- -- that -- -- mom I should get Scott did.
I really under I think he's -- of people that are interactive and that and you cannot write stuff what happens so.
I would like should give the whole time have a -- via.
So just declared you didn't get on the Carson Rio's bid on and won the auction you then went and purchased it from band is that right.
So you know again there's evidence on both sides here is it way either way you that you think maybe Israel maybe it's not or did you buy something that's maybe not a piece of Kennedy history but just as big got its own story of its own at this point after all that's gone out the -- Yeah but you know I don't I don't know if they're not either.
I think that can happen really to orient people are ignorant -- and I am definitely -- just on the phone you know.
-- you know stranger to classic cars you've got a collection -- think of about eighty cars the have a display and a museum out there.
What are you gonna do to try to find out one way or another if this is authentic.
I have to -- got -- -- that worked for me and he.
Look -- a lot of hard for me find out more information but they get for my book that -- -- commonly.
Ours then I think people can take -- -- then they're -- worry about each car so.
Play well fired and just see where -- -- rebuttal -- here and say you probably are winner either way because it gives them by now you've gotten at least a 120000 dollars worth of press and public relations out of this thing.
-- -- So -- bad no no that's acting -- idea what's it actually gonna be on display in the museum -- do you expect to have it there so you wanna stop by.
You know get out all that happened that around there and get -- generally not -- protected we're protected.
Bob -- there's no -- -- that out in the -- part.
-- know what's what's your -- -- unless you've seen in person it's melted -- I mean there isn't the real thing.
I get me out a way that you know I don't know.
I don't know that for sure yet or anything.
Any any concerns on your part that since the you know it's possible that this is a fake -- there is documentation.
That would have been -- along with it then maybe there -- some crimes committed in the creation of this car and nuts and you're gonna get -- and something like that.
-- -- I am I had -- that I didn't do who created out of our way.
It's happening -- And I -- -- you get very good lawyers out there Grand Junction, Colorado thanks for calling it another go forward to hearing more about this if if you do find anything else about it please give us a call.
We definitely want to find out how what you discover.
Yeah it'd be fine if people you know we need to act.
-- I'm sure you'll be here from the folks at professional car society who over the ones kind of behind this whole thing.
-- -- on -- -- -- and appreciate you joining us that I am.
Which would you think of -- -- the Philadelphia which way which raises real dealer I really have no idea of the vintage markets me is really another planet but to -- -- announced.
I don't know if -- make that investment that's me on the finance guys I don't know the our allies really there and if it's that the can be just that would really nice -- at Bonneville with some.
Pain on that.
With some navy markings that to me as I -- very much has no idea what you're talking about right now although I I got no idea what the return -- the investment -- -- from Hollywood's the land of fake everything is this -- -- -- real dealers as a movie prop that somebody I've brought to bear Jackson.
Part of probably not the real deal I mean having I'm not you know of judging on any information I don't have but.
The photographs -- make of the original dash -- it's probably not I mean.
But he used Bonneville -- Is he worth pointing -- the real Kennedy car would have been worth upwards of millions you know she's got a museum wants a conversation piece.
A 120 grand seems like a pretty good investment I mean like you said you know she's probably -- at least a hundred when he ran out of PR out of the thing.
And it's got a story you know as long as she doesn't try and presented.
This is the car you know she presents -- as this is the controversial.
Maybe it is maybe it isn't car.
Editorial museum and -- 120 grand for that kind of display piece doesn't seem to outrageous.
Another car that was at auction they're Camaro.
Pace car I think for media rating from under you favored by get a ride that corridor of the race.
We understand a busy 28 Camaro refiling to get a chance to see that at the Chicago Auto Show government couple weeks were to be there.
I'll believe it or not even though there's only about five -- -- coming out of the show.
Met -- Merrill has outsold mustang now this year for the first time in 24 years or so -- that.
The -- 48 were not really sure to expect we're -- and it's gonna have that -- nine engine under the -- from the Corvette -- -- one or at least the one from the Cadillac CT SB.
You think this thing's gonna take the crown from the Shelby mustang as far as -- the muscle cars is concerned.
I think it may but only for a very brief period of time you know I know some people afford enough.
I asked them about -- when he -- and they said don't you worry.
By the time that they hit showroom floors will be unveiling something else that will absolutely put it to shame.
But my biggest problem of the Z 28.
Is that adding more power and adding bigger breaks and and doing those things -- the Z 28 is gonna do.
Don't fix any of the problems that I personally have with the Camaro most.
They don't -- -- trash we don't know this you know there's reports that there are preventing amber territory twelve busy -- will technically be a 2012 models that that might actually be more interest thing.
The what's under the hood is whether or not they actually did upgrade the interior on this or you're gonna show is that quite yet.
Well I mean just just as someone I'm six foot two and I spent three weeks driving around super charged.
And into the seating position was so bad that I had to spend over a thousand dollars on chiropractors.
To fix my back afterwards I'm not joking that's actually completely true when you're you know that's with the coming out convertibles were soon afterward but the headroom and scratching their Ryan -- let me think about -- by -- was fat big Americans like it should work for them.
And it's funny to the last thing seems like a smaller -- it's -- -- company what do you think about the threat you know obviously that's interest in the Chicago Auto Show is usually known for being a truck show right.
Well here's interest thing I heard a rumor and of -- -- all speculation at this point but suppose we shall be cars the American.
-- -- out -- wherever they are going to be bringing it.
The GT 350.
That's just where mistreat them percent to that of the interest and understand Shelby's done what senator fifty horsepower version of the most -- -- supersonic.
-- wasn't it -- only generate some member of the exact figures so a lot.
Got the what's the red the code red is that the won the Nelson racing engines and -- -- -- thousand horsepower yet they've got a million different things down there maybe afford to tap into that they worked very closely together I'm sure 550 is not the max.
We'd be seeing out of a Shelby GT 500.
Let me -- -- we got the picture appear the the -- this is actually the transformers -- -- America.
Yes yes of them but I see way too many forty year old man.
Driving around in this yellow bumblebee lookalike America's all about the Nissan -- syndrome you know -- built the car for youthful audience than just for whatever reason it's -- backfired and now like fifty year old driving these these on fumes and Camaro and things like that now we think about guys that are going to be a transformers addition Camaro.
You know I can actually do you one work but what's even worse than that is guys who.
Fifty year old guys who put like transformers logos on the other big -- of America but I swear to god this is a true story I know -- guy.
In New York who has a yellow Lamborghini diablo roadster okay and he put.
Black racing stripes on it and black wheels and transformers logos over the round tail lights on his Lamborghini.
Diablo national story -- not mistaken if that's the same car I'm thinking.
That -- most ridiculous -- -- -- right.
That the one and it also has and -- -- also has -- pipes and they 250 -- -- nitrous system and it you know you hear coming around the block for at least a half -- -- you know and -- believe his B transformer had it was a red.
-- -- who I still haven't give to my three year old -- recently he was -- with it so little other connection there -- Lamborghini in the -- let's not get the push drugs.
New -- -- also got to push her husband's the suspension they really get really good at the tees they've got the new had been to door coming out the replacement for the mercy a -- -- topical or similar to horsepower -- redeeming.
They've -- until some pictures of the suspension -- -- be user racing type.
Horizontal push drugs on the just a double wishbone suspension -- -- -- -- that back there.
Literally -- really -- it up with this car -- and replace the -- it's like a hundred years old so.
The uniforms Benadryl -- fifty grand -- want something that's got Formula One technology like this.
Yeah I mean the big the big secret about mercy -- -- is they're not actually very nice to drive.
They're huge you can't see out of them -- and the steering wheel is like four inches to the right of where it should be so.
From what we hear from Lambert gave me they've really fixed all that the cars lighter it's more powerful the driving position is is is proper.
And obvious there's carbon fiber everywhere and I mean for seven -- -- -- horsepower.
You know we're guessing about 350000.
Dollar starting price.
Should be a hell of a car.
Hopefully it's good -- and probably will be but the question is will it be as good looking as the new Ferrari -- -- Or my brother for -- FF women -- -- -- this actually is a good looking car actually looks elegant.
-- pizza delivery -- looks like a BMW and -- from years ago it I mean.
-- -- -- -- you can you can go either way -- this thing you can that it either say it's but the bread -- from New York where you can say it's kind of the -- -- America from.
Ferrari it's the tenacious and take but I'm not sure about -- Never been a big fan of look at this 612 -- -- which this replaces this is a lot more functional well foresee.
Fifteen and a half cubic foot -- that's bigger than you get other Camry but.
I don't know.
Why are people buying and this car to be there every day driver 320 plus thousand dollars.
It's it's really weird you know what I personally I actually like the shooting break designs I love when asked and did it and I love the coach Phil Bentley is that that have it but.
It's weird because they're going for this practicality thing yet I would bet.
Is gonna use this all wheel drive system to go through snow except like Ezra -- and be back.
I think that I and I bet that you don't know one's putting anyone really in the backseat of -- either block.
Is -- heinous.
And you can't do much worse than that and so I -- I would applaud them for for going out on a limb and trying to.
To do something different I mean it with the exception of the weird mouth I actually kind of like -- even though Richard is right it does look like -- as the -- -- bit speaking of weird -- another Italian car ever get a look at now look I've got me and -- I -- -- -- Francis who I year old what does it Heidi is that why are off how well you know it's a Peruvian word for magical win something like that.
This is the one point three million dollar.
-- Ghani who I ever gonna pronounce it now this one's crazy this one has a 700 horsepower V twelve made by AMG specifically for for -- -- Thirty miles per hour and -- curb weight of less than 3000 -- now begun hasn't sold cars -- the United States apparently this what has been engineered.
For the United States but I don't know -- you think this is going to be the next -- exact which a lot of people don't buy here of course is going to be the next move -- Well 88 it's gonna be somewhere in the middle I -- you -- applauded when -- for really marching to the beat of their own drummer.
You know that those are absolutely zero compromise cars I mean I've I've never driven is on the but I sat and want.
And this that the interior.
The level of detail the level of fit and finish it is beyond anything else at any price point you know the mouth of the new car yet we're looking but.
If this thing drives you know better at Amazon does and looks and the way it doesn't and it's legal to have one in the US they'll go they'll sell you now know that nobody really needs a sell -- twenty cars a year to -- keep going so.
You know just just have a problem in -- body and make it not right there.
Speed -- -- -- and I hope we have a picture did get a picture that's I've discovered what the inspiration for was.
I might -- will be Brian Hoyer this is the but -- dot Hudson addition have you noticed this the grill on this car looks exactly like.
The grill on dot cuts and from the cars movies just flipped upside down by joining us now for real we have a couple of things talk about but not pass this got to win on the phone any longer he is the person responsible for the phrase.
Who do you think you are Mario Andretti some for the -- we've all heard for people and -- the way we drive he is -- legend.
Mario Andretti were really good people talk to us on the phone today from his office out in pocono Pennsylvania Mario I understand you just went around the world with a race car.
But you were racing that you were meeting with the troops and taking him for rides is that right.
-- -- -- gave by the way I was really enjoyed the conversation I was I was learned something about all these exotic cars.
It was a what's the best of Carson evidence but I just wanted to say about him that I enjoyed -- well -- of the year guy innocently enough Verizon -- -- -- -- a couple of races to go back it was obvious that it -- -- -- you know addition.
Little bit too.
You know too practical.
To practical for you I can imagine what what do you do about -- Pennsylvania I'm sure a day like today with ten feet -- snow on the ground you know the Corvette.
Glad that the media is the Iowa doesn't go very well even in my driveway.
Like to share with you what what we experience on this trip to -- which is phenomenal by the way I think.
Have a sell well received and you know the the eleven days that we were on the road we're used up -- very very well.
They were very generous -- gave us about it an average of three hours sleep every night.
-- So it's like to be in the military so you took the two -- IndyCar over there gave you guys write what -- -- that you got there will be here in the Middle East and in Europe.
Reality and week -- we have that this seven basis.
And that we -- on -- down an aircraft carrier only in the gulf of -- -- were on the Abraham Lincoln or about.
Hours -- -- you get him we it has that is seated down on the aircraft carrier but it would have been a intercede to had a problem that.
So really -- racetrack so we do so on the airport.
Always tirade who has said there racetrack that.
It's the other three.
The other that -- -- base was and Ehrlich.
I was under the airport.
And that we sort of made up the course.
And and also to bases in England.
On the and Milton at all.
Every -- and here we we -- an airport so.
Again it was a makeshift situation but.
But it was fun it was amazing.
-- reaction if you're getting from their writers.
A ride ever amputees from.
Situations and Afghanistan and that.
They -- additional high five -- and haven't evolved -- And -- -- say again well received but throughout this we.
It -- we we just had some quality time.
With with the soldiers.
You know what there was -- meal whether it was at that gathering.
It has sent out we were so we went to Iraq.
They -- faced a lot.
I didn't drive it conceded there -- I was driving about surrounded base.
-- -- fast bus listen you've you've you've -- the dangers like yourself there in the line of fire every day over there.
You know I know it's two different reasons but he was there's sort of a common bond between them we -- to find some common ground where it's been given the professionals we've all followed.
Yeah I mean in many ways -- I think especially when it comes as the you know Didier aviators city air force.
The fighter pilots.
They visited their relationship there they have.
You know within that team that was their crew chiefs -- so forth and and the pride that goes into it you know I just it's a matter of get the job done no matter what you know look at the hours -- -- masking.
These guys these kids I -- men and women who really has been what's sure they'd like well as minimum twelve hours.
Let -- mission is on we don't care you know if it's twenty hours Soviet.
And again it's just -- sense -- -- then.
-- -- -- -- and and dedication.
That this all consuming and there it is just says so obvious soon.
He feels so good to just main -- them and and get their side of it.
Even -- -- to be injured you know.
It's I'm not a one time did -- hear.
Like you know I'd do it over again that could have been a war that -- that they itself.
This inspiration coming from all directions.
And that's black called the military the most noble profession on the moon despondent.
Got to ask you you know.
Our guys in Gaza near -- do a great job but I -- -- -- that car breaks down the motor -- not going to be much help how big of an operation was it to bring along with that car.
Overseas to be given a drive that on these bases.
Well I have logistically it was Dallas mating to actually read that they had the entire team obviously that did that handles -- care.
In this in the states and that.
And you know Lou we have one glitch we had a glitch where we got bad deal in Bahrain and actually that the facilities to track.
Which haunted us quite a bit until.
But again you know like in England they were able to just from wake up you know that -- that managing director for England today in the middle of the night then.
And then the Indian issues she did say that they had they did to get parts and things over there are -- could run the next day and well there's so many being great is pure emotion.
But then everything happened that we made everything happen you know as with all they're as likely to -- -- here and there which is to be expected.
Still we overcame everything in down because I -- say that I could read a book about it actually.
I'd like to read that book -- -- that'd be good stuff it is it something else when you get to see these people.
You know that this team was stay the Indy five -- Centennial you know which.
Everybody understands that and this is basically -- beginning of but that's celebration and we took it to -- that men and women in the military and and again they embraced that incredibly.
You're -- grandson Marco hopefully going to be -- and that Indy 500 varieties -- do this you're gonna get team.
Well IE you know -- great to win one you know you guys being competitive.
Assist the very beginning in.
Be sure to -- you -- -- -- drive that plays so.
-- team functions properly behind him he's certainly capable so we're looking for good things for him.
I would marry -- -- -- -- minister in New York stopped by the studio would love to have you bye and good luck -- -- India and this may well Asia and me in great stuff and later stuff.
Good story you can't -- I think every then they you know again it wasn't just in that was the whole IndyCar team -- that car out there around to the US troops.
Exciting stuff and I'm sure -- lover there apparently they had a lottery to decide do we get to go in the car obviously can give everybody around and your revenues Jones -- -- -- -- that thing.
But I'm -- the ones that one.
Did have some fun -- -- -- Chicago Auto Show that's in two weeks we're gonna be there with a special as we do hear the divested our shows Geneva motor show coming up pretty soon to.
Real -- just want to touch on a couple of -- we're getting from there the Toyota FT.
86 we await for this for bit of governor Bob Carter.
Vice president of Toyota at the Detroit auto show -- this is tourism sports car he says it's gonna be coming soon apparently it's gonna become an.
Toyota has -- sports are forever not -- thing of course you think this is the sort of -- huge shift things around.
A much of this is necessarily gonna turn things -- -- still get more duties -- brand instead of people that just wanna -- camrys.
And Avalon and things like that -- to be interesting see where prices in the whole.
Gamut of things is gonna get here -- -- kind of competitor with the new bluster from Hyundai or is going to be more of an up market car.
But a 30000 dollar vehicle so that's where it's really to get interest.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You know love -- I see it that's all I welcome don't.
Well let me it's like today eighty sixes from back in the day -- it is in the rear wheel drive car.
Enough and and I guess we'll find out.
Most of us as we found one of those from Toyota so we'll see what they've got obviously meant for our -- tired not convict her jurors they Richard -- -- -- detours thanks for us slogan and here.
Through this now -- actually be taking off next week but again the week after that Chicago Auto Show Camaro Z 28.
Clothing store Americans communion rail truck -- -- that in the hopefully a couple of surprises not quite the Detroit -- -- of the Chicago says.
