As human beings, we’re very materialistic and have all this stuff – furs and cars and diamonds and money.
I drove an electric car for seven years because of its advanced technology, not because I have any concerns about energy resources. I have none at all.

The first autonomous cars date back to the late 20th century.

My mum is a rock star, and I idolise her. She was born in a conservative Muslim family, where the girls were not educated much, and she was required to wear a burkha. She felt repressed but dreamt of driving her own car, walking around in jeans and wearing sunglasses, and she did.

‘The melancholy of all things done’ is the way Buzz once described his complete mental breakdown after returning from the moon. Booze. A couple of divorces. A psych ward. Broke. At one point he was selling cars.
I’ve been on the side of it where you have bad luck and slow cars.
People get excited around me and behave differently than they would normally. I don’t feel different from anyone else, except that I drive a racing car round in circles faster than somebody else.
We’ve got to get people out of their cars, out of those drive-thru windows, get them walking, get them in parks and get them more active.
I’ve actually made a prediction that within 30 years a majority of new cars made in the United States will be electric. And I don’t mean hybrid, I mean fully electric.
My mom and dad were ‘helicopter parents,’ literally. Meaning, I didn’t have a nanny, so I went up in the helicopter. My entire early childhood education consisted of tagging along while they reported on car accidents, multiple-alarm fires, and shootouts.
If I were to look in the United States or in Europe, in some of the garages, you would have a Bentley or two Bentleys or a high-end Mercedes, and you may find a Smart also in that same garage because that person thinks it’s a fun extra car to have. He may have four cars but also have a Smart because he thinks it is cute.
I always knew about the risks I was taking. Every year, someone you knew was killed racing. You had to ask yourself, do you enjoy driving these cars so much that you’re prepared to take that risk?
Everything I do is for my parents and my family. The car is nice, the house is nice, but none of this matters without them. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be here. I don’t know where I would be, honestly.
I don’t actually own a car.
In the last three years of racing I’ve met as many women fans as men fans, and in NASCAR it’s the same thing. My wife loves cars, but the difference is she doesn’t have 20 years of understanding the background of them. She basically drives them and uses her gut feelings as to which is best.
As more and more people are automated out of the economy through robotics and self-driving cars and other technologies, there will be a way to create value for other human beings online. There will be a virtual economy for exchanging value, goods and services, entertainment experiences, and all that.
The electric car, it’s not the government saying, ‘Oh, we must have electric cars.’ The market was ready for that. People were ready for that, so, we have electric cars.
If you had a carbon tax, you’d have less cars and more bicycles, more people getting around on foot and by public transport.
We need to become good citizens in the global village, instead of competing. What are we competing for – to drive more cars, eat more steaks? That will destroy the world.
There’s three things men always talk about – women, sports, and cars.
I remember at the age of five travelling on a trolley car with my mother past a group of women on a picket line at a textile plant, seeing them being viciously beaten by security people. So that kind of thing stayed with me.
I was a workaholic. I never stopped. I lived in fifth gear. I bought cars. I invested in stocks. I made more money than I had ever imagined.
I look away at car crashes, and I know people who look away at car crashes, because it makes us uncomfortable to watch other people in pain.
So much of life is luck. One day you make a right turn and get hit by a car. Turn left and you meet the love of your life. I think I made the correct turn.
Guns do kill. Unlike cars, that is all they do.
I’m not really worried about the flashy stuff. I don’t got chains and cars. I spend what I need to spend. It doesn’t faze me.
Every major car company is trying to figure out, ‘How do I deploy the Internet into the car? How do I get cars to talk to each other? How do I get more safety? How do I get the ownership experience to change dramatically as a result?’
I was in diapers when my parents left me with the babysitter to participate in an armored car robbery. They never came home.
I don’t even like old cars. I’d rather have a goddam horse. A horse is at least human, for God’s sake.
I think women like Ferraris. A Ferrari is everybody’s car.
As a child, I always wanted to be a race car pilot.
I have yet to meet anyone quite so stubborn as myself and animated by this overpowering passion that leaves me no time for thought or anything else. I have, in fact, no interest in life outside racing cars.
I wasn’t stealing cars at like, six. But I’ve always been bad.
We don’t sell a car, we sell a dream. We are Italy’s national team. There are many great soccer teams in our country, but there is only one Ferrari.
There is a spiritual hunger in the world today – and it cannot be satisfied by better cars on longer credit terms.
I don’t care about having a fancy car. I don’t have a lot of the wants and needs that a lot of people have where I would need to make a $1 million a fight.
I don’t even think Trump knows what transgender means. He probably thinks transgender people are those cars that turn into robots.
I’ve exercised with women so thin that buzzards followed them to their cars.
I don’t understand why people set limits, like I will buy a house, then car, and so on. But I ask them, what after you’ve achieved all that? I have come to realize the value other things, like nature, or spending time with my family in Ludhiana or peace of mind.
Running on different types of racetracks is challenging – not only for the drivers, but even more for the team members who have to make adjustments to the cars before each race.
My first job was working for my dad. He was a used-car dealer, and I used to wash the cars down, clean them out, and so on. I would do stuff for him pretty much every day. It was quite a good job, to be honest.
By the end of the 1950s, American cars were so reliable that their reliability went without saying even in car ads. Thousands of them bear testimony to this today, still running on the roads of Cuba though fueled with nationalized Venezuelan gasoline and maintained with spit and haywire.
On Memorial Day, I was out floating on Lake Norman and came across Denny Hamlin. We struck up a conversation, and one of the first things we were talking about was how much it helped him when he started racing the Cup car and how much it helped his Nationwide program.
The first car I drove was a BMW M3. I drove it around a circuit close to my house. We just wanted to go and have some fun and didn’t think it was going to be competitive in terms of lap times. But I ended up being faster than the instructors that day.
I’m a big believer in everybody being themselves. If not doing a swimsuit calendar is yourself, that’s great. But if doing a swimsuit calendar is yourself, then you should be able to do it. What I do outside the car adds to who I am and expresses a different side of me.
Growing up in the Sacramento Valley in the ’70s, we were all pretty big into cars. Of course, I had to nerd out and be a fan of Bob Tullius’ Group 44 Jaguars instead of Corvettes/Camaros.
On the East Coast, people try to make life interesting. On the West Coast, they try to make it comfortable. The emphasis here is on fancy cars, how one looks, less on the mind per se.
Building cars is highly specialized, it’s hard, and it’s capital intensive.
I had a couple of car accidents when I was in my early 20s, and I used to have such a bad back.
Me and my partners had been stealing cars for a while.
That’s when it really came together for me that I was in a Bond film, to have my own spy car!
Am I a car aficionado? No: for me, cars have always been just for transport. I didn’t even know anyone who had a car until I was 14 or 15.
Medical tourism can be considered a kind of import: instead of the product coming to the consumer, as it does with cars or sneakers, the consumer is going to the product.
It was just the next logical step from making succinct pop songs. What do you do after that? You make pop songs that are longer and more epic, that push the envelope. Imagine your favourite song, or something that you play over and over in the car, except that you don’t have to start it over as much.
Google is working on self-driving cars, and they seem to work. People are so bad at driving cars that computers don’t have to be that good to be much better.
People try to function in the real world – the analog world – while they’re texting in the digital world, and they run into the car in front of them. It doesn’t work to be in both.
Every song has a composer, every book has an author, every car has a maker, every painting has a painter, and every building has a builder. So it isn’t irrational to take this simple logic a little further and say that nature must have had a Maker. It would be irrational to believe that it made itself.
My dad was always there, even though he wasn’t living in our house. He was always on the phone, always just a car ride away. Whenever he had a new recording, we would be the first to get the acetate. And it would say, in Dad’s handwriting, ‘Play it loud.’
We need to steer clear of this poverty of ambition, where people want to drive fancy cars and wear nice clothes and live in nice apartments but don’t want to work hard to accomplish these things. Everyone should try to realize their full potential.
We always want more. Whether it is better clothes, a bigger house, faster cars, or the latest gadgets, satisfaction in these days of consumerism is difficult to find.
I listen to all kinds of music, but I’ve always been a really big fan of Top 40 radio. If I’m in my car, that’s what I listen to.
Shoes make an outfit; they’re like rims for a car.
We must move away from our dependency on fossil fuels, and I am glad that GM has invested over $1 billion in hydrogen fuel cells cars to meet this goal.
I was just a toddler when my dad died in a car crash. With my mum, Eunice, being a young widow with a large family, she really struggled money-wise.
Qualifying is all about putting everything that you have and that the car has in one lap. It’s like a rush, I really enjoy that.
We approach people the same way we approach our cars. We take the poor kid to a doctor and ask, What’s wrong with him, how much will it cost, and when can I pick him up?
A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad.
The bass player‘s function, along with the drums, is to be the engine that drives the car… everything else is merely colours.
I was very down as a teenager, very upset because I had gotten hurt in a car accident. But my dad was a source of strength. He used to say, ‘It’s the character with strength that God gives the most challenges to.’ I’ve thought about that so many times in my life when things didn’t go right.
At the end of the day, I got involved in all this because I enjoy driving cars and driving them as fast as possible. If I was going to be remembered for anything, I would like it to be for that.
The reason I moved to California the first time was to build the Cobra. I thought it was stupid to have a 1918 taxicab engine in what Europeans like to call a performance car when a little American V-8 could do the job better.
I would not advise people to buy a car or house without making a list. You will probably improve your intuitions by making a list and then sleeping on it.
If I buy a new car, I rip the rearview mirror off because I don’t like to look back.
There are many role models I’ve been around, and kind of the biggest one – there’s a show called ‘Push Girls,’ with all women in wheelchairs, and they’re all really good friends of mine. And one, Angela Rockwood, is still modeling, in a wheelchair. After a car accident.
I don’t think that all the coal miners – or even more realistically, say, the truck drivers whose jobs may be put out by self-driving cars and trucks – they’re all going to go and become web designers and programmers.
Electric cars are really very cool. Air-source heat pumps are great.
It’s like driving a car at night. You never see further than your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.
I think that technology is the best thing that ever happened to mankind. It’s an absurd notion that somehow, ‘My God, what are we going to do when driverless cars come along?’ It’s going to save lives on the road. And maybe, one day, we’ll all be working four days a week and not five or six days a week.
I’m a girl that loves cars. I’ve always loved them. I love to drive with the windows down, sunroof open, and music pumping.
The hardest part was when I was in high school not having a job and always being broke. I had to get to auditions without a car. I either took the bus or walked.
When Hindustan Motors rolled out the first Ambassador Car in 1957 its sturdy body, rounded contours and Mother Earth simplicity immediately bagged it a place in our collective consciousness.
Guys want a 500 horsepower car. I’d rather have one horsepower – in a horse. That’s macho. You go to pick up your date and you show up on a horse.
When I was 15 or 16 playing in groups, we used to sit in the car and try to write the lyrics down as a song was playing, and we’d assign each person a verse, you know: ‘I’m going to do the first one. You go for the second one.’ And then sometimes you’d wait an hour for it to come on again so you could finish it up.
If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments.
I don’t believe in the electric cars, but I strongly believe in hybrids.
Sometimes I wish I could drive a car, but I’m gonna drive a car one day, so I don’t worry about that.
I just feel rejuvenated in such a big way because of these race cars I get to drive.
The way you dress or the car you drive or what you spend is to impress other people with how, I guess, successful and rich you are. But you’re not, and you shouldn’t, and who gives a damn what other people think anyway. So, that mentality, I think, is very destructive.
No matter how good a driver you are, you have to have the right car and the right team behind you in order to succeed.
On a bike, being just slightly above pedestrian and car eye level, one gets a perfect view of the goings-on in one’s own town.
But my passion is racing cars. It’s what I like to do in my off time.
I remember when I started off, my first car was a Kia Spectra. With a spoiler kit and some rims.
Whatever I think of, that’s what I do. I wake up and think, ‘I want to buy a car’, I buy a car. I wake up and be like, ‘I just want to lay in bed with my girl’, I do that. I wake up and want to rap, I rap. So whatever I think of.
I’ve been away since I was pretty much eight, traveling to the car tracks, and then going to Europe and traveling more.
Virtual reality is extremely exciting. We have the biggest opportunity in sports when you talk about the possibility of bringing fans inside a car going nearly 200 miles-per-hour.
I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.
When you’re doing a TV show, it’s not like you just shoot for six weeks and you’re in an editing room with all of your footage. It’s like a guitar or a car, you have to fine tune things. You stop doing what’s not working, you work on what is working and you add things that do work.
When you drive it is you, the car and your performance on track that counts. That is why I do it.
Our goal was to completely change transportation. Change traffic. And make it possible to get anywhere you want to go without owning a car.
One of the reasons I’m excited by what visionary Elon Musk has done with the Tesla is to show that you can reduce global warming and drive a powerful, fun car. A cool car helps make a cooler planet.
True, I drive an Italian sports car around Hollywood, but the radio is tuned to a country-and-Western station.
When I’m in my car, I’m listening to books, audio books, always.
Buying sports cars, going to expensive nightclubs, spraying people with champagne and things like that – what I learnt is that it wasn’t for me, and, in fact, I feel pretty empty after doing that.
What I noticed about L.A. is that people try to hit on you in your car. It’s incredibly creepy to be in a car and have the guy next to you roll down his window.
Since I started driving in F1 in 2006-07, the cars have got slower and easier to drive.
If your goal is to be the biggest movie star in the world, a 10-movie contract is gold. It was never my goal. Up until now, I made movies – and I have a nice house, a nice car. I’m fortunate, happy and grateful. Life is good.
People who have car collections – I never understood that. I always thought that was unnecessary. It’s not beautiful, it’s not creative. It’s just showing how much money you’ve got.
I don’t like twists. I don’t get much out of them. If you know two cars are about to run into each other, you don’t walk away and say, ‘Oh, I know what’s going to happen.’ You watch.
That’s the first sign you know you’re a Libertarian. You see the red light. You stop. You realize that there’s not a car in sight. And you put your foot on the gas.
I’m a crazy car guy. I’ve got an airplane hangar full of cars.
Societies need rules that make no sense for individuals. For example, it makes no difference whether a single car drives on the left or on the right. But it makes all the difference when there are many cars!
(On seeing a former lover for the first time in years) I thought I told you to wait in the car.
I’ve always had a fascination with cars and racing, not that I’ve ever competed.
There is no medicine maybe for everything, but there is a big medicine which is downforce in an F1 car.
Ten to 20 years out, driving your car will be viewed as equivalently immoral as smoking cigarettes around other people is today.
We aren’t addicted to oil, but our cars are.
Sorry, never been a car guy.
We need a number of solutions – we need more efficiency and conservation. Efficiency is a big one. I think car companies need to do a lot better in producing more efficient cars. They have the technology, we just need to demand them as consumers.
My motivation for starting Fisker was simple: I thought there must be a market for beautiful, exciting, fast, environmentally friendly cars. The car is probably the only product you can still fall in love with and have a relationship with.
I am a big car enthusiast. I totally understand guys like Jay Leno who have a thousand cars. But asking me my favorite car would be like asking my favorite song or favorite food – it changes everyday.
When you’re in a race car, you’re going through so many different emotions throughout that race.
Suburban sprawl leads to social atomisation and fragmentation and is environmentally disastrous, as carbon-intensive car journeys displace local shops and replace public transport.
The way I drive, the way I handle a car, is an expression of my inner feelings.
When I was 18, I borrowed my parents’ car, and they are super supportive. They might give us snacks for the road, but it’s not like they are paying clubs to book us.
During the early days of HootSuite, when social media was still seen as a fad, I made the decision to treat our funding as if it were my personal bank account. That’s not to say I blew it on fast cars and fancy dinners. Exactly the opposite.
I liken myself to Henry Ford and the auto industry, I give you 90 percent of what most people need.
I swear my car won’t run unless I’m picking my nose: At least, I’m that superstitious about it, so I don’t want to take any chances.
Stay humble. Always answer your phone – no matter who else is in the car.
Johnny Guitar… just one of my favorite singers of all time. I met him when we were both on the road with Johnny Otis in the ’50s when I was a teenager. We traveled the country in a car together. I would hear him sing every night.
We are pushing the limits on the chassis and the engine sides a lot in order to have a competitive car, and this is why we are winning races, but also, if you push the limits at a certain stage, you find them.
Richard Childress and myself have made some important innovations on our cars.
It took five days to drive to Los Angeles by myself. I listened to Abbey Road for six hours at a time and watched the desert open up before me again and again. I saw the sun set and rise at the Grand Canyon, and I sang out over the cliffs, picked up tumble weeds along the way and threw them in the back of my car.
I had never driven in England on the left side of the road. I had never driven an automatic car.
Shutting off the thought process is not rejuvenating; the mind is like a car battery – it recharges by running.
In America, kids would go to college and get out and buy a second-hand car and go across the country and discover America. I never did that; I went from New York to Paris, and New York was my America.
Well, I always had a chauffer, because I have never driven a car in my life. I still can’t drive.
Consider what kind of car you get. Buy cars and other products that have the least impact environmentally.
Family trips to Yellowstone and to what are now national parks in Southern Utah, driving the primitive roads and cars of that day, were real adventures.
I love vintage cars because you can do so much more to them.
I want a Mini-Cooper because it’s fuel efficient, emissions efficient and all that stuff. It’s small and better for the environment. I think that will be my next car.
When we have a Deputy Prime Minister who tells people not to drive cars but has two Jags himself, and where the Minister who tells people not to have two homes turns out to have nine himself no wonder the public believe politicians are hypocrites.
I like the word ‘autopilot’ more than I like the word ‘self-driving.’ ‘Self-driving’ sounds like it’s going to do something you don’t want it to do. ‘Autopilot’ is a good thing to have in planes, and we should have it in cars.
I used to look like a deer in headlights on the red carpet. You step out of the car and it’s bedlam. Everyone’s got crazy eyes.
Without grounding, it’s easy to embrace the ‘baller’ lifestyle: dropping out of tech, throwing money at cars, boats and real estate, and slipping into a cycle of spending and indulgence.
What did people do prior to cell phones? Read a book? If I’m stuck in a car, and I don’t have my phone, I’m like, ‘What am I doing?’ Car rides used to be one of my favorite things.
Tesla is here to stay and keep fighting for the electric car revolution.
I don’t drive by the seat of my pants and happen to win races. I work very hard to interpret the data and drive a certain way. My engineers have confidence in me, and more often than not, when I tell them what I need or what I am feeling with the car, it’s right.
Not having to own a car has made me realize what a waste of time the automobile is.
I’ve got CDs in my car, listening all the time for that next song, because everybody’s looking.
In a country with millions of people and cars going everywhere, the enemy is going to get a car bomb out there once in awhile.
Maybe I’m the only footballer who isn’t interested in cars. My Lancia Y gets me around.
Society is fast – fast food, fast cars, fast everything.
I’ve always been attracted to cars, and driving is a completely measurable experience: if you qualify last on the grid, you’re the slowest, and if you qualify first on the grid, you’re the fastest. So no one can say you’re slow if you’re fast and no one can say you’re fast if you’re slow.
One of the disadvantages of poetry over popular music is that if you write a pop song, it naturally gets into people’s heads as they listen in the car. You don’t have to memorize a Paul Simon song; it’s just in your head, and you can sing along. With a poem, you have to will yourself to memorize it.
Why did they keep changing guitars and amplifiers when they were perfect? They did the same things with cars, if you ask me. They forgot how to make them right, because they focused on style and bells and whistles.
I’ve always wanted to race cars, ever since I was a young boy, as I think a lot of guys have.
Eventually, all cars are going to be autonomous.
I was always an observer, even as a child. I could be satisfied to sit in a car for 3 hours and just look at the street go by while my mother went shopping.
In 1964, when Lee Iacocca said, ‘Shelby, I want you to make a sports car out of the Mustang,’ the first thing I said was, ‘Lee, you can’t make a race horse out of a mule. I don’t want to do it.’ He said, ‘I didn’t ask you to make it; you work for me.’
I think, like everybody else in New Hampshire, when I pull up to fill up my car and I pay $50, I get upset. And I’m wondering if these prices are legitimate.
I don’t like new cars; I’m into vintage cars – there’s a Jaguar E-Type in the ‘Goldie’ video.
I had a ’69 Road Runner when I was a kid. I had it for 13 days, came home one day, and my parents were in the driveway. They said, ‘Meet the new owner,’ because they’d gotten phone calls about me burning rubber for the last 12 days. They thought I’d wrap it around a tree, and it was too much car for a 16 year old.
There’s nothing wrong with the car except that it’s on fire.
At a car dealership, the person who sells the car is the hero, and also gets the commission. But if the mechanics don’t service that car well, the customer won’t return.
I keep my weight low, although you need to be able to move your weight around the race car to change the balance. I’m 6ft and I’m 70kg so I haven’t much fat on me.
In August of 2002, I survived a car accident. Although I can still see the van speeding toward us, I cannot bring to mind the crash itself – only its aftermath.
Don’t you think it would be great to do a bunch of Nicorette commercials? Just, like, me in the desert, kind of Marlboro Man-style, driving a fast car, pulling over, looking at the sunset. Dissolving in ecstasy. Can’t you see it? Me blowing huge Nicorette bubbles.
One morning, about four o’clock, I was driving my car just about as fast as I could. I thought, Why am I out this time of night? I was miserable, and it came to me: I’m falling in love with somebody I have no right to fall in love with.
At Barca, players were banned from driving their sports cars to training.
I’ve been smart with my money and own a property in London so I’m very happy, and I’ve got a nice car.
I can’t just wear whatever when I go out because somebody might want to take a picture. People are, like, taking pictures of me in my car when I’m driving. It’s crazy. I kind of hate it sometimes.
I’ve always been asked, ‘What is my favorite car?’ and I’ve always said ‘The next one.’
We had everything. We were young kids. We were driving cars our parents couldn’t afford, living in big houses. For me to sit here and say, ‘Oh my God, I didn’t enjoy any of it’ – no, I did. Of course I did.
It’s true that driving an F1 car in testing is helpful, it’s not that you learn everything.
Rebellion is what you make of it. When you’ve been on a tour bus for two months straight, and then you get in your car and drive wherever you want, that can feel rebellious.
Remote villages and communities have lost their identity, and their peace and charm have been sacrificed to that worst of abominations, the automobile.
I think Tesla will most likely develop its own autopilot system for the car, as I think it should be camera-based, not Lidar-based. However, it is also possible that we do something jointly with Google.
The future of design is a future where anything material in the environment – whether it’s wearables, cars, buildings – can be designed with this variation of properties and relationship with the environment that can take part in the natural ecology.
When I think of ‘Mad Dog Time,’ I think of the fact that I got to drive fast cars all day long up in Canada. That was really fun. We were on these back roads with these great cars.
Many highly intelligent people are poor thinkers. Many people of average intelligence are skilled thinkers. The power of a car is separate from the way the car is driven.
We all drive differently and have different styles. For me I need a car I can develop beneath me and feel comfortable in. If the car feels neutral and unbalanced it doesn’t work for me.
I’ve always had an affinity and a passion for cars and that whole car culture.
My worst ever car was a green Datsun B210, back when they called it ‘Datsun’ – now it’s ‘Nissan.’ Very unsexy, unattractive. Girls hated the car. I was embarrassed to even be in it… but it was my transportation.
Through your life, most people peel away the junk that’s not useful, that’s superfluous. You are determined to peel that away. I do one thing at a time. One man at a time. One car. One house. One child. One job.
I think electricity will create a new world. I feel like the world will change a lot with electricity, and I wonder how it will change, it’s scary, and it’s going to be fun. I think there are so many things to think about when it comes to electric cars.
Back in the mid-1970s, we adopted some fairly ambitious goals to improve efficiency of our cars. What did we get? We got a tremendous boost in efficiency.
The mobile Web, location-based services, inexpensive and pervasive mobile apps, and new sorts of opportunities to access cars, bikes, tools, talent, and more from our neighbors and colleagues will propel peer-to-peer access services into market.
But to personally satisfy my own adrenalin needs, I’ve been racing cars a little bit, which has been fun.
Nobody wants to buy a $60,000 electric Civic. But people will pay $90,000 for an electric sports car.
You have to first of all feel good with yourself before doing something which requires being fast or driving a racing car.
I love everything from old-school cars to whatever the latest muscle or luxury vehicles are.
If you own a home with wheels on it and several cars without, you just might be a redneck.
Latency is very important when you think about autonomous cars and things like that – 5G will really change the game, and I think will be another spike of growth in the wireless industry.
Those who have come into Formula One without experiencing cars devoid of electronic aids will find it tough. To control 800 horse power relying just on arm muscles and foot sensitivity can turn out to be a dangerous exercise.
Cyclists. I really hate them. I wish they would not be so self-righteous and realise they are a danger to pedestrians. I wish cyclists would not vindictively snap off wing mirrors on cars when they were trying to cross in front of the car at a danger to motorists and pedestrians.
Dirt has given me a really good car control ability, but it would have been an easier transition if I’d been racing pavement my whole life. But off-road has given me such a good foundation for car control when the car is loose, because the competitions are so intense – basically 30 minutes of utter chaos.
It all happened so fast. The ghetto. The deportation. The sealed cattle car. The fiery altar upon which the history of our people and the future of mankind were meant to be sacrificed.
The prevailing – and foolish – attitude is that a good manager can be a good manager anywhere, with no special knowledge of the production process he’s managing. A man with a financial background may know nothing about manufacturing shoes or cars, but he’s put in charge anyway.
I’m not trying to be new school and I’m not old school – I’m classic. There’s a lot of new cars and there’s a lot of old cars, but I’m just classic in doing what I do.
The vehicle-stunt world is so specialized. But when you spend so long in it as a stunt coordinator, you’re exposed to all the disciplines, so it’s always fun to combine the two ideas – a car chase and a fight scene – and make something more dynamic.
If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25 cars that got 1,000 MPG.
I have to perform every time I’m in the car, and show that I’m capable, and I need a little bit of timing and luck to come together.
The roll out of a new car is always filled with great anticipation; it’s almost like going back to school for a new school year.
I ride many different cars. Let’s say I would drive 200 different vehicles in a year, so it’s rather difficult to say which car or what car I ride. I love cars.
I wanted to be a race car driver when I was a kid.
So I was getting into my car, and this bloke says to me ‘Can you give me a lift?’ I said ‘Sure, you look great, the world’s your oyster, go for it.’
It’s kind of like those little electric bumper cars where you drive around and see if you can hit the other guy. That’s exactly what the country is like now. You no longer have the sense of community. Of loyalty. It’s lost its sense of group. It has nothing to do with leadership.
I couldn’t find the sports car of my dreams, so I built it myself.
Ikea people do not drive flashy cars or stay at luxury hotels.
I don’t just hop in the car. I have destinations. I drive to relax. I’ll be gone for two weeks, hit four or five major cities. I don’t like being nowhere for more than two or three days. I just go. I don’t have a schedule.
The Rolls Royce was the real first car. It wasn’t the first new car I got, but it was the first real car I bought that’s like, ‘Wow, I got this.’
I took a whole stunt course and pretty much got certified as a stunt driver. It’s ridiculous how easy it is once you understand the car and know how to do it.
