Ever wonder how to get your father arrested in 1990s Germany?
18-year-old Jason can probably answer that for you. Upon taking the keys to his father’s Vauxhall Calibra, Jason tells an adolescent story of getting a speeding ticket 100 mph over the posted limit.
Going to Monterey Car Week without your car? Buy or rent an old car, no matter how much oil it leaks! Jason and Derek discuss which car in their respective collections they’ll bring to this year’s car week and complain about the soul-sucking rentals and assorted boring new cars that other attendees often drag along.
This episode’s main focus revolves around the varying types of people who have previously and currently buy supercars for status. Jason and Derek discuss their general distaste for individuals who see supercar ownership purely as a luxury experience, when in fact the opposite is most often true- particularly when stuck on the side of the road waiting for a tow.
But perhaps the individual is not actually to blame when the manufactures make their most hardcore supercar offerings more accessible to the average Joe and Jodie. Make an amazing, highly capable, accessible supercar, and more often than not the wrong type of buyer will go after it. But that won’t stop them from being passed on track by Jason in a Volkswagen Golf VR6 or a Derek in a Mazda Miata- after all, the driver mod beats all.
